If you're going to stand against something...

....maybe there should be a real reason for it, not just vague claims of "fear".

"A storm is coming"?

"The clouds are gathering"?

"I am afraid"?

Then move to the frakkin' basement and hide....but what does this have to do with same-sex marriage?

"I'm a Massachusetts parent helplessly forced to watch public schools teach my son that gay marriage is okay."

Uhm, have you ever heard of home schooling?

I'm curious what they actually teach in the schools about gay marriage. Did this mother really think her kid wasn't paying attention to gay marriage and how it's becoming real? If her son is little---it's not being covered at all. If he's not so little, then he's probably forming his own opinions that may not match yours anyway. Are you prepared for that?

"They want to bring the issue into my life."

By making you see gay people get married? How is it being brought into your life?

"I'm a California doctor, forced to choose between my faith and my job."

You could always move to Utah or some other conservative place, until the times catch up even there.

"I'm part of a New Jersey church group, punished by the gov't because we can't support same sex marriage."

How is the government punishing you? And is it "can't" or "won't"? I really don't care whether your church group does or doesn't support gay marriage---that kind of reform must happen from within a congregation. How is having the legal definition of marriage (a contract written and overseen by the state, not the church) updated to include gay couples punishing your church group?

"My freedom will be taken away."

This is where the vagueness of the commercial bothers me. What freedom are we talking about? How does two women (or two men) getting married threaten YOU? I'm serious. Leave me a comment and tell me how YOU are threatened (if you're one of the people who are represented by this commercial) by two women (or two men) marrying.

I don't want to hear about how the god(s) you believe in will rain fire and brimstone upon us, blah, blah, blah.... If that's all you have to say, you and I will never agree, so don't waste my time. In fact, I'll say this clearly and up front: for this post, I will delete comments which only refer to how much G/god hates gay people or any variant thereof.

So, all you people who are terrified of gays forming families and being equal in society with you---standing next to our partners and being given the right to be responsible and protected---tell me why you're scared. Give me real reasons. Otherwise, you just look like a bunch of pathetic sheep being told what to believe, to think and to feel.
