or you think that both sides have some credible opinions (which isn't ok. This isn't something like abortion, in which both sides make statements that have validity, even if only in a vacuum. This is something where one side's opinion solely comes down to not liking the other.)

I disagree. Both sides have credible opinions. I'll agree that the 'against' side has some pretty weak arguments, but they are still entitled to those opinions, which should be heard and do go beyond "don't like".

-Religious -- Those against it for religious reasons don't necessarily not like it -- they just choose to support a set of values that doesn't allow for it and they feel it infringes upon their beliefs. I know someone like this and it definitely sounds contradictory, but who am I to judge her or her opinion on it? She has her US citizenship and she's entitled to it.

-Adoption -- It goes beyond the basic concept, but the question does come up -- some say children are healthier when raised by biological parents, or have a male / female role model. There doesn't appear to be enough data that points in either direction to say for sure what's healthy or not, but it does certainly seem to lean in the pro-gay direction.

Again, both weak arguments, but valid ones (that admittedly, I probably haven't presented well, but I don't really agree with them anyway).

It's obvious you've already made your decision on where you stand (DUH!) and if I had to decide I'm sure it's pretty clear where I would stand. I still think anyone is entitled to their opinion and I can't fault them for that.
