Remember???
People's civil rights should not be left up to a majority vote. Would you have like people to vote on the civil rights of African Americans bigot?

The first poll is a year old and the recent vote against SSM proves it is wrong as now there are 31 states banning it....[/quote]
Support for same sex marriage differs from state to state. My state of Pennsylvania does not have a constitutional ban on gay marriage and 52% of Pennsylvanians support same sex marriage. A religious southern state like North Carolina opposes same sex marriage.

[QUOTE who="Here Is One"]Oslamas poll numbers dropped 7% in one day after he announced his support for SSM..........LOL
No you are just making stuff up.

I don't care what your opinion is we the voters can and will stop the abnormals from changing the word marriage to include them.......

I have said this trend is growing and we started with one state and we now have more than 30......

Oslama took a 7% poll drop by just making his announcement..........ROTFLMAO

Yes it is too bad for you that you did not listen to me when it was only one state banning SSM........

And you also said that the country was turning in your favor and I told you how wrong you are......

Now we have more than 30 states and just about enough to install a federal ban..........LOL

Give oslama a few more months and we will have the numbers we need......

Now did blacks try and force us to call them white after the civil rights movement???
NOPE
Did woman try and force us to call them men?????
NOPE

They did ask that we call them a post person not a post man but they did not force us to call them men.....

But the gay community wants to change the meaning of the word marriage and I told you years agao that this would be your downfall.......
And it has........LOL

Well, seeing as they did not believe in land ownership, what would be the basis of the land that has been claimed, parceled, developed and sold since?
Sorry, but this hypothetical fails to rise to the level of even being so much as rational.
They believed nobody can own the land, it was part of their culture and beliefs that you fail to honor, why don't u give them back their rights? Hypocrite!!

Homophobic bigots like you are in the minority now. And now that the US president supports gay marriage there is no way to stop the tide equality.
CA is in the red by 16B and your concern is your boyfriend...it became clear the great obama was not willing to make it a Federal issue and instead feels it is a state issue which effectively changes nothing. Nothing, put your gay pride parade costume back in the closet, nothing changed.

That's not going to happen. Republicans tried to pass a constitutional ban on gay marriage at the federal level and failed TWICE.
And that was in 2004 and 2006 when they CONTROLLED both the house, senate and presidency.
I can't wait for a national law LEGALIZING same sex marriage however.
Coming soon.
