I feel that legal equality cannot be separated from perception, because everything a person does is affected by their own perceptions of the matter. We can minimize it and almost eradicate it if we try enough, but it will rarely be eliminated. How many time have you found people show a sudden case where they let their biases get the better of them? Even if the know better, even if they said differently? Laws must go through people.re not talking about perception here, we're talking about legal equality! Thanks for confirming my premise that it is about being accepted more than having the same rights.
On the same stream, I feel being accepted as such is inseparable and inherently a part of having the same rights. I feel this is backed up in history many times.
that makes no logic
As far as the comment of why we compare our movement to the AA's fight for their rights, it's because, while it pales in comparison, it's similar enough to compare it to. If you believe it's not appropriate for gays to raise a child, do you believe it's inappropriate for a single parent to raise a child? Neither have both sexes involved. Do you believe it's better for a child to be bounced from foster home to foster home, than to be adopted into a loving family by a gay couple?
PS: I'm still working on not getting angry lol. So far I think I'm doing OK!
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."
And using anything spiritual to make an argument for a decision, no matter what it may be, in the public sector is absurd. It's irrelevant. If marriage was all that spiritual, the divorce rate wouldn't be 50% What is this, Saudi Arabia?
Why is it that so many support a ban on gay marriage, yet so few propose a ban on divorce? Why is it that some of the same supporters of a federal marriage amendment have been divorced themselves? Where is this "sanctity"? I think marriage lost any "sanctity" as soon as the government stepped in in the first place. It then became a legal contract. Now I don't know about you guys, but nothing says turn off like a prenup!
While you may not agree with everything he stands for, if you put him side by side with the rest of the candidates, he really is our last chance to restore the republic.

I dont know if i could keep as cool as Outsiders71 is being in this case. Lets try not to make assumptions.
People can accept all these and still come to different conclusionsYou can choose to not accept them as loving people even if they're "married." Although, I hope that some day, you finally realize that it's just better if you accept people for who they are.
that makes no logic
I HAVE to give credit where credit is due. This is not the first time Outsiders has been in a debate against several members at once, but he definitely conducts himself in a respectful manner and holds his ground on his positions (no matter how much I disagree with them) and I have to respect that. Many would feel cornered and lash out in a position like that, but he has indeed always remained more or less calm.
