Once again why do you let these things shape your thinking? So minorites can't discriminate as well?

I wonder if history and status quo had defined white males as second class citizens would INDY and Aussie still be such big supporters of history and status quo?

Brittney Spears in Vegas.

I say, instead of focusing on WHO is getting married, why not consider WHY? People wanna marry out of love, whats so wrong with that? I don't understand why there is such a backlash against gay marriage but not one against the 10 minute quick-and-easy marriages that go down in the casinos. It happens all the time. Some people get drunk, get married, and wake up the next day not even remembering it all. Whats the traditional value in that? Why is that being ignored?
What can we do about that? It's their choice to abuse it, I certainly don't approve of it and it does disgust me. And I'm sure if homosexuals could marry, they would surcome to the same type of abuse of the system that us hetrosexuals do.
Just because hetrosexuals abuse the sacred right of marraige sometimes, it doesn't give credence to the argument of homosexual marriage.

Sure it does! Just like heterosexuals who want to marry out of love, there are homosexuals who want to marry out of love too. I'm just trying to say that the argument about tarnishing something that is sacred and traditional isn't really valid since, even though other people abuse it now, it still isn't tarnished and 2 people who are committed to one another will still get married.

Don't take away their rights to enjoy the sanctity of marriage. Straight white men have it tough these days, what with the rest of us clamoring for equality.

I think you just proved her point. (Man, you keep digging yourself in a hole)

You can't acknowledge the abuse and then keep repeating that is so sacred.

People are comparing these impertinent issues which share no similar ground apart from the fact they defined them also as 'tradional values' and they are now seen as wrong. Your assuming that because we've changed our outlook on blacks as second class citizens etc. etc., we must now let two gay people marry. Two completely dissimiar things, both have totally seperate issues surrounding them.

How are they different? They are both born that way. You're contradicting yourself now.

Nobody has any control over how people abuse their marriage. How does that mitigate the sacredness of it? Because one person does a misdeed, its okay for eveybody else too?! Do you believe marriage is not sacred? Do you believe that because some drunken fukwits abuse it, it is okay to completely redefine it and just allow anyone to marry whoever they want and totally embellish it?

I know you weren't quoting me, but I would like to respond.

My point is, it IS still sacred, and will always be, because it is that beautiful eternal promise that 2 people want to share with one another. It is just those 2 people, no other human being in the outside world is in this marriage. Drunken fuckwits abuse it, but does that at all cheapen your bond? Of course not. So what if drunken fuckwits, homosexual couples, or anyone else marry. All that matters is your love for that other person. That is what the marriage is about anyway.

It does not lose it's intention or beauty.

I'm not saying because some abuse it that's the reason to redefine. I want it redefined in order to acheive equality, I know you aren't a big fan of that.

Marriage is only sacred between the two that got married and only remains as sacred as they keep it. Just like you admit, the fact that some abuse it, doesn't mean my marriage is less sacred. The same goes for if two men or two women got married the sacredness of my own isn't effected.

Take a look at your post and the inconsistancies and maybe you'll understand that.
