Marriage Equality to Triumph in 4 States

Not too fond of the use of "Marriage equality" here. It presumes truth in something that is not true, namely that same-sex relationships are equal to normal relationships. They are not. Morally, biologically, sociologically the two are inherently unequal. Unfortunately, stating the truth on the matter is seen as evidence of bigotry, so rather than thoughtful dialog, I fully expect insults. As such, this will be a "drive by" posting, so you're probably best to ignore it.

You're right. We keep allowing the left to redefine words. It's not marriage equality. Marriage equality already exists. It's same sex marriage. Why do they object to that?

Actually, I don't think there is any objection to same sex marriage. If that helps us find common ground, then that's great.

That's just semantics. It's not the words that are important, but the rights.

You're stating some things that just aren't true. There's nothing morally, biologically or socialogically unequal about me or my marriage. Maybe in parts of your bible those things are written, but you don't abide by every word of your bible (nobody does) AND your bible has exactly nothing to do with constitutional rights. In fact, your freedom to express your religion is gauranteed but EXPRESSLY not allowed to supress the rights of others. Read your constitution. I don't hate you by the way, I feel sorry for you.

homosexuality is an unhealthy,destructive behavior(medically PROVEN),a mental illness(readily apparent),and NOT good for society,any society(recognized over millennia).
it is not to be accommodated,enabled,or encouraged.

There are legions of professeionals in medicine and psychology who disagree with you -- including the members of EVERY mainstream medical and psychological organization in the country.

What IS unhealthy is for gay men and women to force themselves to conform to society's expectations of how they should live their lives.

All of the family experimentation over the past 30 years — no-fault divorce, the sexual revolution, cohabitation and widespread fatherlessness — have been documented failures, harming adults and children in far deeper ways, for longer periods of time, than even the most conservative among us ever imagined.
Why do we think this radical new experiment of gay marriage will somehow bring good things?
And it’s interesting that even more liberal organizations are starting to
understand this.
Child Trends, explains:
An extensive body of research tells us that children do best when they grow up with both biological parents.Thus, it is not simply the presence of two parents, as some have assumed, but the presence of two biological parents.

With almost all polls closed, it looks like same-sex marriage bills in Maryland, Maine and Washington have all passed to allow same-sex marriage. In most of these states this was an easy win. In Minnesota, the vote was a vote to ban same-sex marriage. It looks like most likely the ban will not pass, but it is still very close.

This is a huge victory for marriage-equality groups and many people have taken to twitter to show their support. After Politico announce the win in Maryland, many celebrities and marriage equality supporters showed their approval.

Traditional marriage supporters...
