*that marijuana should be legal. It should be treated exactly like alcohol, and taxed heavily. Pot is no more dangerous or addictive than alcohol is. Like alcohol, it is plant-derived. Think of the new possibilities for farmers! And what a boost to the economy! The hunting down, prosecuting and housing (in prison) of pot dealers is a ridiculous waste of money and resources that could be better spent elsewhere.
*that gay marriage is a civil right. As David says, they have every right to be as miserable as the rest of us.
*in a terminally-ill patent's right to physician-assisted suicide. Why on earth should anyone be forced to suffer through pain, misery and complete loss of dignity when they are simply waiting to die anyway? Shouldn't each of us have the right decide when and how we are ready to go?
*that prostitution should be legal. Decriminalizing it would mean that sex-workers would no longer be under the control of violent pimps, they would have legal recourse when needed, and there would be fewer underage girls (and boys) involved.
*that polygamy should be legal, among consenting adults. Again, if it were out in the open (and regulated by the government) there would be fewer cases of young girls being coerced into the situation against their will.

What do you think about the case of the 13 year old boy with Hodgkins lymphoma, who's parents want to pursue a more natural treatment? According to reports, after only one round of chemotherapy, he refused to go back. He said that he would "kick and fight" if he were made to go undergo further chemo. HE wants to try non-conventional treatment, and his parents support that choice. Should he, because he is a minor, be forced to undergo chemo and radiation, as the government insists? What would YOU do if you were his mother?
