I doubt he'll ever be able to walk around on two legs ever again, but thinking about it......bears usually roam around on all fours anyway.

Perhaps first you should go through the effort of explaining why this is a civil rights issue.

I'm not really sure what a moral reason is... Morals are arbitrary unless they come from a concept that helps the society. The real question is, what (if anything) about homosexuality shouldn't be embraced by a fair and equal society? Does homosexuality infringe on the fair rights of non-homosexuals?

And I kind of see what hip-hop-bunny is saying about civil rights. Regardless of whether it is considered one by law (no idea if it is or not), why should it be considered a civil right? To me marriage is a religious institution - and not one that I particularly value anyway.

But if the government is giving out benefits based on marriage, then un-married couples should at least be able to access those exact same benefits and be accounted for in the same matter in all respects.

On the other hand, maybe legally recognizing marriage is an infringement on the civil rights of single people. I guess I don't really fully understand the issues but I think it has something to do with how you file tax returns and bla bla bla.

I already I won't give a rat ass if they approve gay marriage in Minnesota. I don't give a rat ass about it.

It makes no difference. Most Americans still favor traditional marriage.

In the room next to that, also straight out of the 70s, I had a great dinner. I thought it was a neat place, and very friendly.

Haha, this is very convincing . Will certainly have to check this place out soon.

There has always been a surprisingly large MN population on this website.

You should come to Minnesota. It is a good decent state. I love Minnesota. Everyone is here.

Where is this?
Blablablabla. I am not homophobic. I already stated that I have spoken to few gay people myself. I gave them good respect. They gave respect to me. I am nice to homosexuals.

I like being redundantly redundant too.

Blablablabla. I am not homophobic. I already stated that I have spoken to few gay people myself. I gave them good respect. They gave respect to me. I am nice to homosexuals.
I'm just giving you a hard time. i realize that you respect gays. The only thing is, in the US, everyone is supposed to be equal. If there is a group of people who don't have the right to get married, that doesn't seem very equal to me. So what I'm really saying is that respect alone isn't enough in this case. You should fight for everyone to have equal rights.
