When you say the "troubling protests" cause problems, I hope you realize they only exist because of people like you, or the groups who are more extreme than you, that want to rid the earth of their kind. However, when you say that an adopted child will have huge child hood problems because of their two fathers/mothers, I agree with you. These children will most likely be made fun of until after high school, but once again, only because of bigots like you who exist. So what I'm saying, in reality, is that the cause of all these problems you brought up involving same-sex marriage, are usually caused by the people who are against it, such as yourself (no offense), and will continue to occur until those who oppose of same sex marriage are much smaller in number.
What's really unbelievable, and that I think is so ridiculous, is that people such as yourself can blindly follow words written in a book hundreds of years ago by a man (yeah, not god) that preached love and other great things, but somehow don't think twice when it comes to suppressing those who are different from yourself, and inflicting hate and violence towards various groups who you think are not to be considered human beings. Homosexuals and Lesbians are the 21st centuries equivalent of the blacks right movement. Oh, and I'd also like to point out a funny fact; 90-95% of the black population of California voted for prop 8, which indicates to me how fucking dumb the majority of people on this earth really are.
I'll end this post with my favorite Gandhi quote
"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."
PS: This is not intended as an attack on silent or anyone else.
I didn't say my entire basis for disliking gays and marriage was religion btw.
