Since they are not violating the rights or liberties of others then there is no good cause to not sanction them.


I was simply stating that any law on the issue of marriage should deal with any and all contingencies no matter how rare or remote.

I should, just as some people in here should ask before labling one a bigot who is opposed to gay marriage.

And that attitude strikes me as an intent to cloud the issue with red tape, having to completely rewrite the books just to allow same sex couples to get legal recognition.

Do you think that gay marriage should be allowed? what about incestuous homosexual marriage?

Ok then you tell me one logical reason why gay marriage shouldn't be allowed.

One that isn't based on not liking homosexuality.

No one has. Not one person.

As soon as someone does, then I'll stop using the word bigot.

It seems it would be easier to settle the entire issue if all these questions were answered at once. If the legal definition of marriage is going to be redifined, why only write the law to deal with one more type of marriage? Shouldn't the law be written to deal with every contingency? What happens when the issue does come up? Can you deny someone the legal right of marriage just because their form of marriage is exceedingly rare?

If they are not infringing upon the rights or liberties of the other party or other people then no!

I've never stated that I was against gay marriage or homosexuality. How can you state that someone is a bigot because they asked questions about who has the legal right to get married? You've got to be making a lot of assumptions to use the word biggot against someone who has never stated they were against something and that would then warrent the use of the term.

Are you in favour of legalising gay marriage?

I never said asking questions makes one a bigot. Please show me where I said that. I said there is no logical reasoning to oppose gay marriage except that you oppose homosexuality which in my book makes you a bigot.

But then again you are the one that reads between the lines.

So once again I ask, can you think of any logical reason to oppose gay marriage?

Well, another poster seemed to have a different view on that.

The only thing I've done in this thread is ask questions on the whole issue of marriage.

As for your question, no I can't think of any logical reason to oppose gay marriage. I think that might be the third time I've answered that question and the purpose of my questions was never to find a way to oppose gay marriage, despite the fact that several people have made that assumption.

That's because there is no logical reason.

Maybe you have answered the question, I didn't see it, but oh well.

Your questioning did come off as a way to oppose gay marriage, especially since so much of it was proven moot in here by so many, yet you kept asking.

None of the questions I asked were moot since all involve the question of who an adult has the legal right to marry. I kept asking the questions because people never answered them and kept mixing it up with assumed opposition to gay marriage.

From where I stand they were all proven moot because they all could be answered outside the realm of gay marriage therefore didn't belong in here.

One good thing that came out of this thread is we went 9 pages and not one mention of the Bible(at least to my recollection). Maybe folks are coming to terms that we don't live in a theocracy.

But its obvious from the first post in this thread that it was never exclusively about gay marriage. In fact, only one sentence in the first post even references gay marriage.
