    You keep using the words 'Gay'

    and 'Marriage' together, as though they represent something... this confuses me. Stop it. No... really. You tell me that you support 'Gay Marriage' I'm just not sure I understand what that is... the word is a contradiction. You don't believe me then? Maybe... I can explain...
