I've got a firm grip. The intellectual dishonesty it takes to make such an argument is absurd and should be shunned by every segment of society. Those who promote this sort of thought hold everyone to a lower level.

Put it to a national vote on the next presidential ticket right next to Obama's name.

You don't vote on fundamental rights. Something those on the right ONLY remember when it's about "their" rights.

Sadly, this is the way it goes. Distracting from the point is just the inevitable next phase.

In a couple days, there will be yet another complaint of "I can't believe I have to explain that gays have the same rights as straights again" coming from somebody on the right...

Comments like that are not supposed to be intelligent arguments, but rather sound-bites to reassure people that their prejudice is okay.
Repetition is legitimacy to them.
Not the capability to make a cogent argument.

Frustrating, isn't it, when your best-reasoned arguments fall upon (deliberately) deaf ears?

All arguments against gay marriage are engineered backwards. They inevitably start with the proposition that it shouldn't be allowed and then try to retrofit any sort of specious reason they can find to justify the prejudice.

I think it's a bit better to start with some basic principles, and then reason one's arguments forwards from there, myself.

Well, there is no smart argument against same-sex marriage.

I am tired of this discussion on such an unimportant issue. I will just say this: Homosexuals DO have the same rights as everyone else. There are no Jim Crow laws regarding homosexuals. They simply want special rights to force everyone to accept their sexual proclivity on a personal level. That is something that cannot be legislated.
