Aside from all the politics the reality is simply this; homosexual conduct and gay marriage are simply abnormal and unnatural. Now, the courts may determine that so called "gays" have a legal right to marry but if so such ruling does not legitimize their conduct from a moral or ethical perspective nor does it convert their actions to "normal" or "natural". What gays really want is not only legal legitimization but also cultural, societal and religious acceptance and they know that in order obtain such they first must gain legal recognition. And, they will attack and demonize anyone that stands in their way by labeling them as bigots, homophobes, etc. In other words; they will vilify their critics and try to make THEM the immoral.

On what basis would you disagree now that you know the facts are against you?

Perhaps you mean something *other* than 'normal'?

Sort of.  This heated discussion wasn't really about the issue of gay marriage, per se, but rather how O'Reilly characterized gay marriage opponents' appeals to religion.  Last week, the Fox News host drew controversy for saying that traditional marriage advocates need to do more than "thump the Bible" when building a public case against same-sex marriage.  After some conservatives, including Rush Limbaugh, objected to what they perceived to be a disdainful tone from O'Reilly, the long-time anchor invited Laura Ingraham onto his show to talk about it.  Things got interesting right out of the gate (via Mediaite):
