I’m all for everyone speaking up. And I totally respect you starting this thread, and debated not posting at all since I kind of feel like I’m thread hijacking. So I won’t argue with you or start up a debate. But, with respect to your views, please realize that a 27 person marriage is nowhere near the same as a homosexual marriage. You can disagree with them all you want, but please be kinder in the way you do so.

Why so much hate?

I believe that every person should be free to do with their life as they please. I pass no judgement unto anyone just because they don’t think like me. 

This is suppose to be a site of support for everyone equally and not to hate or express our personal judgment against anyone.

I am not a conservative by any means and I’m older than a lot of the brides on WB – but I think it is common for younger (and I mean 20 something or younger) people to take it for granted that everyone is more liberal

I think people should speak up for whatever they beleive in even if it differs from the norm – that’s one of our fundamental American values.  Just b/c I may not agree with you doesn’t mean either of us is not entitled to our views.

And for the record, I am 100% in favor of same sex marriages.  I am not in favor of the health care bill at all – but other more liberal folks really let me have it when I say this.

Second what @lilyfaith said.

It reminds me how my mom compares homosexual marriage to “like a man being able to marry his dog or something”.

Sigh. Not the same at all.

Because as a conservative I don’t believe that other people’s personal lives are any of my business.

@ chicagobride092010: That’s a really good point.

ETA: As a liberal I have the same viewpoint.

Everyone here on the bee is free to speak their mind. It is a personal choice on whether or not they choose to do so. Please keep that in mind.

I am again, not a conservative and think anyone should be able to have the right to get married, but I think you guys are being a little harsh on the OP.  I don’t think she was meaning to compare same sex marriage to marrying 26 people.

and chicagobride is 100% correct In My Humble Opinion – it’s no one’s business what anyone else does.

I could say so many things here but in order to keep things nice I will not.  

I would just like to say that homosexual couples should be able to get married if they choose to and no one should be making their decisions for them. 

That said… I will stop now.

OP: Care to elaborate or give us some more insight on your viewpoint?

I am with you chicagobride. I will occasionally comment on issues that directly affect me, otherwise I keep my opinions/thoughts to myself.

Perhaps no other conservatives stated their disagreement on that thread because they were respecting all of the same sex coupled bee’s on here. I’m sorry you feel unsupported but stating you disagree with same sex marriage on a thread about the topic falls under “personal attacks” in my opinion….

wildstyle: I think its entirely possible she was in fact making that connection because it appears to be a common inflammatory argument to throw polygamy, bestiality, and so on with homosexuality.

But, I think that there are conservative voices on the bee, but there are may be more liberal ones on here.
