I consider myself a fairly orthodox Catholic – though not conservative. I support and accept the Churches teaching & understanding on marriage.
That being said, I have no clue why there should be an opposition to gay marriage in this country. I don’t deny that this is wrong – I consider it wrong. However the way this country was set up esp. its incorporation of mechanized morality, I have no clue why either gay marriage or polygamy or anything else should be illegal if it does not harm anyone else.
Minority rules when the majority fails to vote, pray for increased voter turn out for all elections at all levels.
This is not true. This is a moral issue. Even if the majority supports it, it still does not make it correct. This is a limit of democracy. Democracy stands for the average, not the normal.

Political Correctness is bringing ruin to our civilization. We have to Vote and Walk our Talk. St. Michael Pray for us
While I believe Political Correctness may be a problem, I think what is ruining western civilization is our belief in the ability of a secular state to avoid corruption (esp. moral corruption). In this regard, I admire the Muslim world – at least they have this correct as compared to the western world.
Well folks my state of Minnesota has just legalized gay marriage. The 12th official state to do so. Now the question is what state is going to be next and then the next one after that? It feels like we've opened up a pandoras box for something else as well. Then will it be pologymy? Where people will want multiple wives or husbands then who knows. All i know is where as catholics we need to pray and pray a lot. Pray to Saint Michael to protect us from the evil one and pray to our wonderful mother for guidance to get humanity back in the right direction.
