Homosexual "marriage" is legal in New York.

Mind you, I didn't really lose because of this, but only because my faith in humanity has been gone for a very long time.
I lost.

Reading Turtle's post makes me realize how much further we need to travel. It wasn't easy for blacks to get equal rights either.

You can't abstain from being black (nor is there anything immoral about it, so no reason to abstain even if it were possible), and marriage is not a right.

A) You can abstain from being black. Michael Jackson did it.

B) Legal marriage is something you need in order to have your spouse considered for matters like taxes and insurance. To deny that ability based on sexual orientation is pure discrimination and very un-American ("created equal"). Laws like New York's (and the other five states') aren't forcing churches to perform or recognize gay marriage. The law grants equal legal opportunities. Churches can go **** themselves, continue being bigoted, and slowly lose their members until they decide that discriminating against their fellow man because of ancient myths might not be the best idea.

Every time I think I hate Lizard Dude, I come to a thread like this, and I can't stay mad.

Oops, you can't abstain from being gay either.

Watch what you say. One day you might not be able to get married either.

I'm pretty sure, the last time I checked, you can choose to not have gay sex.

For what purpose?! And don't say FOR GOD because the real world doesn't work like that.

If we aren't operating under the same basic assumptions about reality then there really isn't much point in continuing.

No, there isn't. I can't wait for gay marriage to be legal in all fifty states though.

...altruism? I'd hate to be in their situation so I'm trying to help them out?

It's called having a heart.

I would love to see a world purged of homophobia, at least as much as today's is purged of racism and sexism (specifically, both are, under normal circumstances, unacceptable, abnormal circumstances being when you're a comedian or when you're in Punch-Out!! (one character in which is a stereotypically gay person; the game is way ahead of its time)).

Why? Because discrimination is disgusting and you are disgusting for doing it

Anyway... as if you have to be married to have sex in the first place. Or was that Prop 9?
