    I agree with you whole heartedly....case in point, one of my brother's who lives in Durango has a gay son who wanted to have a civil union with his male friend in their home state of Mass. my brother is a devout Christian and although he loves his son refused to be forced into attending their "marriage" ceremony..he caught a lot of heat including some from his wife but I applauded him for sticking to his faith and " talking the talk, and walking the walk" I know it was agonizing for him but he refused to be forced to accept something that was against his religious beliefs

    I'm not saying that we should all support gay marriage. What I want to know is why should I want it to be illegal?

    You shouldn't if you don't want to be.

    But I believe the institution of marriage B/T individuals of opposite sex was instituted to allow an orderly transfer of property to one's heirs & had nothing to do with what we see today.

    In my day gay meant being happy, & the individuals forementioned were described in lesser terms. I personally find the proponents of this type of conduct reprehensible, as I believe them to be dishonest in their eventual goals.

    Im sorry, Matt

    but I think I said,

    You Shouldnt if you dont want it to be....

    and then I gave my personal rebuttal which says..

    But I do want it illegal, and because I am willing to accept the fact that you (dont know for sure, maybe your playing devils advocate) dont want it illegal, dont condem me, or force me to accept it being legal.

    you could boil it down to PHYSICS....

    FOR EVERY ACTION THERE IS AN EQUAL AND OPPSITE REACTION....

    YOU want it I dont, I want it YOU dont.....

    FUNNY THAT WAY, HUH????

    Why should I be opposed to polygamy?
    Really, what is WRONG with polygamy? Is it MORE wrong than gay marriage?

    wrong is wrong, regards
