Well, let's see... You "cheerfully voted for Virginia's Constitutional Amendment..." that upholds the grand tradition of centuries of suppression of the right to a business contract (that being what marriage is) by a certain group of people you disapprove of. It's a classic case of that thing you so vehemently deny.
