    Current estimates are that 1.7 – 3.4 percent of the U.S. population is LGBT.
    Clever cartoon, by the way.

    I have to wonder about ALL the people who are SO concerned about “Gay Marriage” destroying the institution of Marriage.
    If a Gay or Lesbian couple getting legally married can actually have a detrimental effect on your marriage, perhaps you had better look at your own life, and see if YOUR marriage is in trouble in the first place, and not worry about what OTHER couples are doing!
    In other words, stay the HELL out of other people’s business, and deal with your OWN problems first!

    And with any luck this trend will cause the leadership of the Westboro Baptist Church to have Annurisms so that we know longer have to listen to their hate and filth.

    I hope the Republican party is paying attention to this trend because the Party leaders talk a good game of smaller government and less government intrusion in our lives but all they seem interested in is: Denying Science, Forcing everyone to adapt to their morality through laws, and participating equally in the distortion of the market place.

    Denying science, like ignoring that abortion kills a living being? Liberals have been forcing everyone to adapt to their values and morality for decades.

    Conservatives are being consistent, yet are not seeing this clearly.
    The Govn. shouldn’t be in anyone’s marriage. To all those in gay relationships, please don’t invite Govn. into your relationships.
    As for heterosexual couples, we must stand for the constitution and get Govn. out of our relationships. No couple should have any benefits or priveledges others do not have. There is equal protection under the law.
    I have two heterosexual sons one year apart in age. Why shouldn’t they be able to enter into a life contract, as bachelors, to live as if they are a married couple? Sharing finances, a home, responsibilities, etc., just not a bed.
    Marriage, gay or not, should not provide any couple legal benefits, period.
    Let’s get Govn. out of all relationships.

    So what you seem to be saying is “no automatic legal rights associated with marriage at all.” No power of medical attorney. No more tax statuses or insurance statuses – or rights of inheritance, powers of attorney, protections for child visitation rights, considerations for immigration, or, well, anything. Separate paperwork for all of it, and no default fallback settings for “married” at all, for anyone.


    And – this part is important – why exactly do you think that this is more reasonable or practical or workable than simply extending the rights, responsibilities, legal titles and benefits of the existing system, to a new group of people?

    “Denying science, like ignoring that abortion kills a living being? Liberals have been forcing everyone to adapt to their values and morality for decades.”

    Nobody’s forcing you to approve of abortion. I don’t approve of it myself. What I do want conservatives to finally get through their skull is that making it illegal won’t stop it from happening. All that time, energy, and money so-called conservatives put into making abortion illegal could be channeled into something positive, such as charities and services that help give women a reason to “choose life.”

    It’s got nothing to do with “protecting the institution of marriage”; if it did, we’d be seeing protests against super-short celebrity marriages and pushes for laws against divorce. All it’s about is people using one passage in an old book to codify and “legitimize” their own bigotry and hate.

    Semantics: actually, a fertilized human egg is called a zygote only at the initial point of fertilization and until it hits the 8-cell division, a very short time. After that it becomes the blastocyst, and after implantation is considered an embryo, although the blanket term “embryo” can be extended to cover all of this.


    In point of fact, though, it isn’t a “human being” at this stage, it is a group of undifferentiated human cells, no different from the stem cells that one finds in certain reservoirs in adult human beings. It is quite arguably not a “human being” until the point that it develops a nervous system of its own, and has some capacity for individual identity.


    I know, I know, that’s not nearly so simple and neat a picture as “fertilized egg == human being”, but at least it has the virtue of being true.

    @onguard

    Voters alway vote it down, even in California.

    You mean, except where they don’t. Most of the anti-marriage equality legislation was drafted before 2011; attitudes have shifted by miles since then.


    Also, nobody is “stealing” anything. A minority group of people want to share the same rights as the majority, period.
