No, actually. When you say something racist, other people are in a pretty good position to call you on it. You're not some kind of persecuted minority on here either. There are conservatives on this board who can express their views without showing a hint of racism. Strasse, for example, has never once been reasonably accused of racism on this forum.

I am so confused right now....You can still be conservative and be fine with gays and gay marriage. You don't have to tow the party line on every single issue.

Also, flag burning has nothing to do with racism, nothing.

This thread is officially about Steve, go figure. If you guys don't like him, why do you keep talking about him and lure him in with these threads? He loves trolling you by taking over threads so he can be the center of attention and you guys just play right into his hand.

Yeah. I'm done. I wipe my hands of it. If I have further conversation in this thread, I will endeavor not to have it with or about Steve.

Dukeshire says:
He is not trolling. He really believes it. You are digging too deeply into his psyche. Steve is a good guy, but a bit misguided. Besides this is an Internet forum, what else is there to do but waste time and post nonsense more often than not? That is the beauty of the VGF Mr. Bump, the absolute beauty....God Bless America.

"which was shortly after I wasted money on that POS Vita"

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Say what you will about anything else, but leave the Vita alone!

Technically it already is if you read the 14th Amendment, but all the homophobic people choose to ignore it.

I'm glad both of these issues are going in front of the supreme court and I hope they are both ruled unconstitutional.

I'll start this by saying I am in favor of legalizing gay marriage, but to acknowledge the other side for just a moment -

This may have been mentioned already, but the most contentious reason against legalization for "sensible" conservatives is if gay marriage is legalized, then gay couples can adopt children. And as soon as this is allowed, the decision to legalize gay marriage will immediately have a huge impact on countless children (who are not two consenting adults). Again, I don't buy this argument, but I guarantee you when Kennedy writes his opinion this issue will occupy a significant chunk of it. But I'm hoping they let Scalia write it, then it will be wild ride.

"You can still be conservative and be fine with gays and gay marriage. You don't have to tow the party line on every single issue."

but it's cheating!

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 9, 2012 8:44:30 AM PST
But same-sex couples can already adopt children.

Well, a toaster can somewhat assist in making a sandwich so that holds the argument up some, right?

I just couldn't possibly care less if gays marry. Why people devout so much energy to prevent gay marriage confuses me. I am far more concerned with taxes, health care, social programs, social security, schools, wars, etc. :)

Nothing wrong with a little fiscal conservativism. It's that social conservativism that sometimes baffles me.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 9, 2012 10:45:05 AM PST
Well, since our government obviously can't be fiscally conservative, they probably think that social is better than nothing. I wouldn't put it past that thought process being what was used. I get sick and tired of people trying to force their beliefs on others. Wasn't that kinda one of the reasons we rebelled against the English and fight so many wars to enable others to be able to forge their own destiny? The hypocrisy astounds me.

I'm married and not LGBT, but I really fail to see how if others who are get married somehow weakens my own marriage. It's utter BS.

True, I don't know much of anything about adoption law, but I've been given the impression that a legally married couple has a much smoother time then an unmarried one. I could be wrong on that one though.

DVvM says:
There's been extensive research in this field, and every credible organization who has looked into it has concluded that children who grow up in stable, loving, homes of sufficient financial means raised by same-sex couples are just as happy, healthy, and successful as children who grow up in comparably stable, loving, and successful two parent homes with a heterosexual couple.

Which is to say that the "gay people can adopt" thing is a complete non-argument. Gay couples should already be able to adopt children. It's not like any child would be better off in pre-adoption circumstances than with a home with parents that would love him or her, care for him or her, etc. regardless of that couple's sexes or sexual orientation.

C_Hus says:
And just to reaffirm what I said earlier - I absolutely agree with the substance of everything you just said, except I would distinguish between "non-argument" and "losing argument". I was merely pointing out that the other sides argument has a little bit more to it then some of the really early posts were indicating.

The first time I went through this I thought I read Steve got Halo 4 on 3DS. Which is pretty amazing when you look at it!

If he actually had said that, I don't think "Amazing" would be the word for it.
