But some people won't and have passed laws banning gay marriage. Would you support getting rid of those and legalizing gay marriage so people can "lead their own lives"?


I honestly think it's messed up. But if people WANT to do that, then let them. I don't have a thing against them PERSONALLY, but I just don't think it's that moral.

You're entitled to your opinion. Would you support legalizing gay marriage nationwide anyway?

Where did you get the idea that everyone was required to respect everyone else's opinions? I respect your right to have one but I am under no obligation to automatically support the opinion itself.

No, closed-minded would be "Fuck you, I don't care about your pathetic ramblings. You shouldn't have posted this nonsense."

Saying "You posted, that must mean that you cared enough to say something." is exactly what it says on the tin.

I'm not saying you have to support that opinion.

Just respect someone's belief..

Like, let's say your an atheist and you say

"I hate Christians. They are so stupid." That's not respecting someone's belief. It's also not very polite to say someone's opinion is creeping you out unless they want everyone to die or something.

I think you're confused about how respecting the right to have an opinion and respecting someone's opinions work.

Like, I respect that you have the right to have your own opinions and views.

I just happen to think that they are fundamentally retarded.

1. Good, because we don't.

2. No. We don't have to. We disagree.

3. Divair didn't say anything close to that.

4. We're not big on politeness around here.

4. What the hell…? Was that a death threat?

Why do I have to respect your beliefs? I will defend your right to have them and I would not put my disapproval the way you did, but being polite does not extend to respecting your beliefs simply because you have them. And I wouldn't expect you to respect mine, either.
