Yes the state needs to step in when "moral issues" tread on my health and well being. That said, do whatever the heck you want as long as it does not affect me! Gay marriage does not affect my hetero marriage at all. AT ALL. There is zero negative impact on my life if same sex folks are allowed to marry. This is all being perpetuated by people who want to control and who are total hate mongers.
The weirdest part of the debate for me is why the people who want to "protect marriage" care so much? All the money they are wasting by trying to limit the rights of gay/lesbian couples would be much better spent on helping the existing messed up unions between the heteros.
Where do you think all the messed up kids come from? Not from the gays, they can't reproduce. But what they will do is adopt the little bastards that the heteros end up with as a result of a one night stand.
The sad part is that there really is no argument that can be made to persuade the Yes on 8 folks. They have a fairy tale and an imaginary friend on their side. How can we logical, peaceful, loving people compete with that?
It's just a matter of time until liberty and democracy prevails for all good people of this state. Maybe then the defenders of marriage will focus their efforts on fixing heterosexual marriages and protecting the heterosexual families from themselves.

It wasn't until the 60's that the US Supreme Court tossed out state laws against interracial marriage (anti-mescegenation). I don't see how they can legally NOT come to the same conclusion regarding same sex marriage. Frankly I'm more offended by pop star marriages. Now THERE'S something that should be banned...or at least heavily regulated.
