Damn straight. I got totally turned off to Andrew Luck this year. Not a personal thing, I just don't think he's as good as people are pretending he is.

I want to really like the guy, but he is overhyped.

I'm completely serious haha I had a debate on this in my writing class in college and our side actually won... just because I have a differing view from yours doesn't mean it's completely uncommon and asinine. Many people believe the same thing.

It's true that many people don't believe homosexuals deserve the same rights as heterosexuals. And they're all asinine bigots in my mind.

His opinions are legitimate. I mean, he DOES have gay friends, after all.

That's my favorite qualifier. "Gays shouldn't get married and their lifestyle is immoral. It's cool that I say that though, as I have a gay friend."

You do bring up a valid point. I still don't necessarily believe in it based upon my religious upbringing. And according to the original definitions of marriage and what it was founded upon, homosexual marriages are contradictory. The government may have twisted the definition, but I don't think thats really a good thing.

Biologically speaking, marriage refers to opposites attracting to create life.
Religiously speaking, it refers to the union between man and woman.

People need to stop warping the definitions of certain words. What's so wrong with just calling a gay marriage a union? Yes, I understand that civil unions don't offer as many rights to the couple as marriage does. However, that's the government's fault; not the religions' faults. If anything, a reform for the rights offered in a "civil union" should be put into place, rather than the redefining of a religious term.

Biologically, homosexual activity is natural. Separate but equal failed for a reason. Why can't the government call it a marriage and allow equal opportunity, and tax breaks for it.

The church has no business in making decisions that decide if people get tax breaks. Also, atheists can get married and there doesn't seem to be any kind of huge backlash for that.
Also, I bet you and Santorum eat shrimp.

What's wrong with respecting religions' beliefs and just offering similar rights in a civil union? Sounds like a pretty damn fair compromise to me.

Cause not everyone uses a 2000 year old book as their moral compass.

You can't tell me that you don't have any friends, family or colleagues who have similar beliefs as mine.

Why is it bigoted of me to agree that gay couples in a union should have the same legal rights as straight couples in a marriage?
Marriage just doesn't apply to homosexuals by definition. People shouldn't go around changing definitions; i know quite a few english majors who would agree with that for any other word in the english dictionary.
