You writers are, for the most part, idiots. Gays are BORN gay. What day did you DECIDE to be straight? Did you ask yourself: "Let's see, which do I want to be? Gay or straight? It didn't happen, did it? You just "knew" which way your were bent. The whole argument is about the word "marriage." It is a centuries old established tradition specificaly designed for the propogation of children. All straight people who marry had better have children or else they are hypocrites! Childless couples, then, don't have any more a right to be "married" than the gays who want to be married.
