@idablu -- It's interesting that you can't see that a gay person might feel like a vote to deny them the right to get married IS a vote to oppress. Imagine that YOU were denied the right to marry for what felt like an arbitrary reason (perhaps your religion or your hair color or whatever). Wouldn't you think that was oppressive? Try to put yourself in someone else's shoes and think how they might feel. In my opinion, "standing up for my religion" does not mean forcing others to behave in a way that complies with my religion. It means ME living my religion the best I possibly can. Divisiveness, anger, and an insistence on political purity are not the way to persuade, although it has become popular. I don't like it from the far right (tea party, Rush Limbaugh, etc.) and I don't like it from the far left (the activists who demanded that Eich be fired for this one act.)

Come on. What power does the gay rights crowd have that you don't? You can't name a single one.
