And at virtually the same time we have our president appeasing, placating, and otherwise acting as King Apologist for another thuggish, despotic, humanitarian train wreck area of the world...

You are only marginally successful in the masking of your principal point. No worries, I'm used to it. Carry on.

One of the biggest TNG fans out there (including Wesley Crusher), but this was mega lame; just a sliver of random stupidness folded into a prototypical leftist religion hater fest. I see my boycotting of the show after the hater-filled Nazi reference to McCain/Palin was well deserved. I only wish I had my 22 minutes back...

Give "rights" and "services?" Rights are not given, they exist with or without government, and innate to man. People have to give themselves their own service, and not expect me to do it for them.

A very sad day for the country, that we put this much stock into POTUS. Just shows the depths of the people's unwillingness to MYOB. The whole "black" thing just cracks me up to no end. Our culture has caved to the club of PC-ness it's hilarious. Ha! Suckers.

Ha! "Bush-enabling senators" and "furious" and "anger!" The left is most comedic when it hacks itself to pieces.

I always advocate that one decide in one's best interest, but few things warm the cockles of my heart like a broken union. Virtually all unions nowadays are more destructive than constructive for its members - look for no further referendum on unions than the disasters that are k-12 education, airlines, and LOL, Detroit. A SAG strike now would mimic the backlash as that seen from the writer's strike. Meh - let 'em do it. Better for all that it's broken sooner than later.

That is one of the critical flaws of the pro-gay marriage platform - that the tradition definition emanates from the Abrahamic religions. The man/woman marriage definition spans most cultures NOT of the Abrahamic flavor as well - from the depths of tribal Africa, to Hindu India, to Shinto Japan.

LOL - example #234 as to why gay marriage "fight" is a fight against religion and the status quo. Because yeah, offending the people you need to win over is the way to go about it. It just cracks me up to no end. Gay marriage is 0-30 when left to the vote. Continuing to hate religion and the status quote ain't working so hot. Now of course the newly ironic issue is that without the 2:1 support for Prop 8 from blacks and Hispanics it wouldn't have passed. I however have zero sympathy to the resistance, as simply a lot of it, like this ridiculous video, is the very cause. Most people support civil unions. Most people do not support gay marriage. LOL - even Obamination says he doesn't support gay marriage (I think he's a liar as he is smart enough to know that it is political suicide). Be happy with civil unions and get on with your lives, or move to the two states that have ram-rodded the issue through the courts. (BTW, this is from a TRUE conservative that nominally supports gay marriage)

Don't intend to be a wet blanket, but technology also also cheapens contact between people as well.

@Andrew: Marriage in Western society does indeed have its rooms in the Abrahmic faiths; primarily Christianity. This speaks nothing to the world history of marriage, how it is defined in the Bible, how it has evolved over the millennia relative (or not) to Christianity, or if some sects are now changing their tune.

@Andrew: "...unthinkable action of modifying its constitution for non-material social commentary." Elton John has a pretty good commentary on the subject (paraphrasing): "Let heteros have the word marriage; it'll set a lot of people off if gays continue to go after it. Gays should go for civil unions - all the rights and privileges of a marriage without the word." I tend to agree. Marriage in Western society has its roots in Abrahamic religion, which is codified in its non-acceptance of gays. The great majority of people approve of civil unions. Continuing to fight for a word shows that public at large that yes, it's still a fight primarily against mainstream and religion.

Anyone see the recent lawsuit brought by a gay man who sued eHarmony because it didn't cater to gays? eHarmony had to fold, BTW. The LGBT defeat their own cause with militancy. They force, and they force, but you can't change the way people think. The result? The backlash that is one of the most liberal states in the union taking the virtually unthinkable action of actually modifying its constitution. I am an atheist that in theory supports gay marriage but it's hard to be anything but ambivalent in light of what is primarily a war against the mainstream and religion itself.

@Jansbob Yes, that's why November 4th was so, so, so, so sad. It was a referendum on the socialization of America. The people knew that they voted for a Marxist globalist. It's not that the hard left government will proactively squash dissent - Republicans will simply have to move left to have any hopes of winning majorities. But that begs the question - what competition is liberalism in the face of socialism? America will never return to the constitutional mandates of limited government, minimal taxation, and freedom and private property. The people want a free lunch, want government to control their lives, and want to bow to the collective political will of the world at large.
