How long before Xenophobes start claiming that people
will get into faux marriages and abuse gay marriage for immigration purposes.

I bet we will start hearing such whining soon.

1. Well, it's been happening for eons already--ever see the film GREEN CARD?
If people want to place blame strictly on "the gays" for that sort of thing, they'd be ignoring reality and behaving stupidly.

I mean, really--do you honestly think that hot eastern european girl you might see at the mall or a restaurant is truly in love with that fat, sweaty, balding ancient fool with the prostate problems that she's with? She's in love all right--with his citizenship! And she's working hard for it, poor dear.

5. They have brought up every excuse in the book why they are
against gay marriage up to and including hyperbolic claims that people will want to marry turtles if gay marriage is allowed. I wouldn't doubt they'd use immigration or anything else they can pull out of their asses to fight against human rights. They are ruthless.

6. You mean like straight marriage is abused today?
Maybe even by some gay people.
