McDonald's feeds more people, and especially more low-income people around the entire world than any government. It's like the only place you can still get a full man for like $5-6.
Have you ever heard of a supermarket?

So when you say ''vast majority opposes'' you are just being ridiculous. Where are your data to show the vast majority in opposition?

Polls are twisted. I'm so sick to death of people citing them as facts or evidence. 13% undecided my ass. Every single place they have a public vote on this issue, it's overwhelmingly against. The states that have allowed gay marriage have done it without the people voting, for good reason. It wouldn't pass. Whatever a poll said about it. 31 states I believe the last time I read about a vote on this issue. It failed from California to the South. It was the legislatures in Vermont, New York and etc... that decided to allow it. Even those very liberal states knew the public would vote against it. So it was done as quietly (and cowardly) as possible. It's an issue I fail to understand, but the majority of the public opposes it for whatever reason, that's just fact. So demonizing a businessman for opposing gay marriage and the press making it seem like he's some sort of oddball hatemonger is just a reflection of why no one has any faith in the media.

Unfortunately, a lot of the more upper class people that tennis attracts are very conservative in their opinions

It was the legislatures in Vermont, New York and etc... that decided to allow it. Even those very liberal states knew the public would vote against it.
New York's populous actually drove the action on marriage equality. Several Republican legislators voted yes. Every single vote on this issue has been done before public movement in favor of marriage equality, outside of North Carolina. The majority have occurred in Southern and Midwestern states which are significantly more anti-gay than the rest of the country.

Four states have it on ballot this year and in Maine, the gay community, and our legislative allies, have brought it up for public vote in confidence of it passing and all polls, that word you don't like, have it passing.

Marriage ballot voting numbers are/have not been representative of the entire populous' opinion as most people have been either apathetic, slightly anti-gay, very anti-gay or pro-gay......meaning, at least two of the categories are people who don't care enough to vote. The anti-gay side has been more motivated and organized than the pro-gay side and thus, we've been at a major disadvantage, but our culture is changing.

BTW, gay marriage has gotten at least 40% in all recent marriage ballots.

Lastly, equal rights should never be up for vote. Ever. These marriage amendments are fundamentally unconstitutional.

That's very true. Feelings of superiority and all.

This forum considers homophobia to be a form of discrimination and if people want to discuss issues to do with homosexuality, please confine yourselves to the issues and avoid using derogatory or offensive terminology.

You mean like accusing people of being homophobes or misogynists?! Because they oppose gay marriage along with billions of other people?

That kind of language? I'm curious.

I mean like using derogatory terms. Being opposed to gay marriage doesn't make you homophobic per se, in my opinion.

Of course. And with prices so high (in no small part because of the gas prices that skyrocket the cost of transport), I stand by my statement. Unless you want to buy a frozen pizza or a frozen dinner and drink water. It's actually cheaper at McDonald's. They are charging like $6 for a gallon of apple cider here.

There was some terminology previously that was unacceptable. I have deleted it and the other mods will look at it.
