In the News In a rather unusual move, both Google and Apple have publicly backed the fight against "Proposition 8", both by words as well as by donation. Proposition 8 is an initiative measure in the state of California that would ban same-sex marriages in California by amending the Constitution of the state to include that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California". Both companies gave out their reasoning for supporting the fight against 'Prop 8'.

"Seeing people switch from homosexual lifestyles to other lifestyles debunks the false claim that homosexuals are locked into one particular lifestyle (if they want to be happy).

And you've come to this conclusion, based on a sample size of... Anne Heche?
" [/q]

No, but then again it's not a matter of sample size, in the first place. Just to illustrate: If ten million people told you that there is no such thing as an elephant, and you finally saw one, would the sample size make your observation irrelevant? Tell me why sample size matters here.

"See, this is where the left cries discrimination, and that's why they feel justified in calling anyone who believes otherwise a bigot of some kind (sometimes many kinds of bigots all at once).

In the same way that people on the right will move the goalposts and try to paint all support of same-sex marriage as simultaneous support of incest, bestiality, pedophilia, etc?

Are you pretending that I equated homosexuality with incest, bestiality, pedophilia, etc.? That would be absurd. What I said is that society used the same reasons for not allowing all four of those things, and suddenly the left has eliminate those reasons in defense of homosexuality, so I asked what reasons we're to use to continue to ban the latter three things. It's a valid question. HappyGod attempted to answer it, instead of just making up something offensive about me. What answers would you come up with?
