You are right, this is the United States of America. We have solid, long standing values. They DO NOT include intercourse and marriage of same sex individuals. Gays are sick people who do not understand their own anatomy. Asking straight people to put up with their point of view is like asking them to try to see ours. It will never happen. Let's just think for a moment. A real marriage of straight partners produces off-spring. There is reproduction and creation. Gay marriage does what exactly? Appeases your lust of body and brings joy to your mind? And what else does it really do but disgust people of real marriages? Should anything good produce disgust in any way? If you can't create something from what you are doing, you are probably doing something wrong.
