My prediction:
75% legal
25% not legal

So far it's 4 to nothing. When are some creationists going to come by and vote against the gays.

At this rate, the American Family must certainly be doomed.  :p

Hi, Wesley, whose mailbox runneth over.

I have  never voted in a poll. If I simply look at the results, I am informed that I have already voted. Which one got my vote in each case - the first one on the list?

Since gay "marriage" is a contradiction in terms, one can't really vote for it or against it.

Civil Union marriage is legal in my country - American Society is doomed.  :O

The button for view results also says 'null vote' on it.

Just to report, since marriage has been legal in England for 137 days (if I counted correctly), that I have seen no signs of the collapse of society. I have also spoken to several of my married friends and they say that their union has not been made meaningless. So, fingers crossed for the next few months.

Did all your heterosexual marriages implode as a result?

This must come as news to all the gay people who have already married each other.

Once again, Thordaddy strikes a blow for utter, screaming irrationality.

And on a personal note, a dear friend of mine just got engaged to her honey, who is currently serving with the U.S. military in Afghanistan. Should I inform her of the danger she and her girl present to all the straight marriages who will come apart because the husband will spend all his time fantasizing about the two of them getting it on?

Also, here's how rational the anti-gay marriage debate really is. (subscription required, I believe)

actually, why assume that civil unions aren't heterosexual to begin with?

In a country where a civil union might (?) carry the same legal weight as a "marriage", i could easily imagine hetero couples deciding it would be a better choice for them.

So if I say that 3 lesbians or 2 homosexual brothers should be allowed to get a state-sanctioned union...,

Is that a vote for gay "marriage?"

This means that religion does not have a hold over the rights of individuals from a political level (unlike a big nation I know of). Probably to do with our gay and lesbian political representatives, our transgendered politician and our atheist agnostic leader!

Am I the first person to notice that Thordaddy never seems to comment at ATBC anymore unless the subject is homosexuality?

doesn't bother me a bit.

it keeps him mostly out of everybody else's hair, and if he wants to explore his sexuality, more power to him I say.

Ichthyic,

In order to vote for or against something, don't we need to know what that something is?

What is gay "marriage?"

21 votes so far, not including yours i guess.

seems pretty clear to everybody else.

wonder why that is...

oh that's right, we're all part of the liberal consipiracy against rationality, right?

let me ask you this:

If you were a senator and had to vote on the constitutional ammendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman, how could you vote?

heck, they haven't even defined what marriage is yet?  have they?

frickin' idiot.

Thordaddy, you seem awfully obsessed with this subject... What's that about?

Like somebody on This Week pointed out, gay marriage is inevitable, because if you look at polls of younger people, they just don't have the animosity toward gays that older people have, on average.

Yup. If you look at polls on gay marriage, acceptance of the idea goes up continually the younger the person is, to the point where voters in their twenties approve the idea outright. This is why the Fundies want a constitutional amendment against it, because they want a ban locked into law before the numbers run totally against them.

But the constitutional amendment ain't gonna happen. Bush just talks it up to make the rubes happy and to distract the masses from his myriad of fuckups.

I know, and what's hilarious is they fall for it every time. Whenever the republicans need some votes, they say "Ban Gay Marriage" or "Ban Abortion" or something, and all the AFDave types start yelling and jumping up and down and go vote for the GOP, which then goes back to ignoring them. They are rubes, and they get played.

Icky,

So would a vote for gay "marriage" include the state-sanctioning of 3 lesbians or 2 homosexual brothers forming a "civil union?"

Yes or No?

Thordaddy, I think you really need to find someone to talk this out with. I have some phone numbers for you, if you think that'd be helpful.

I voted for gay marriage because I plan on proposing to Thordaddy. Can't wait to see him in skimpy lingerie.  ;)

I'd be real careful there. TD strikes me like one of those hyper-closeted types who'd go berserk and start shooting people if anyone ever hit on him.
