A couple of things:

1. "You led with the bestiality slippery slope " -- oh yes, and what a slippery slope it is:

2. "4. Adoption laws will be instantly obsolete, preventing courts from favoring normal married couples over gay couples." -- I love the total fucking neglect of the statistics which show a half-million kids nationwide in foster homes with no one to adopt them. The problem is certainly *not* that there are just too many straight people waiting to adopt kids. Thus, favoritism is irrlelvant. Hell, Pat, do something for the kids, right? It's all about the kids.

2.5 "Foster-care programs will be impacted dramatically." -- Uh, like yeah, because the kids will be adopted into loving, more-stable-than-ever-before households.

3. "6. The health care system will stagger and perhaps collapse, as millions of new dependents become eligible for coverage." and "7. Social Security will be severely stressed, with millions of new eligible dependents." -- I love these arguments, becuase they're prima facie admissions that the idea that giving gay people access to these equal rights is not in any way "special rights" as the 700 Club is apt to call them.

And I agree wholeheartedly with your comments on 8, 9, and 10. Well done :)
