Not a meme

There's a meme going round at the moment which tries to use guilt to pressure everyone into posting a message supporting gay marriage and gay rights.

For the record: I believe that Governments shouldn't be involved in religious issues at any level, and that the civil aspects of marriage should not be gender-specific.

I am NOT asking anyone else to post a message along these lines, nor am I trying to guilt anyone out in any way, shape, or form. If anything, the original version of this meme would prejudice me against gay marriage, and I hope that whoever came up with the idea realises that trying to play the guilt card can have more than one result.

I'm not asking for comments on this - I think that there's quite enough acrimony about this one already.
