Do people against mixed race marriages get to hide behind the same transparent bullshit?

this post doesn't make any sense.

stop foisting your polygamy concerns on gay people. when gay people are allowed to marry one person and then start to want to marry multiple people, maybe then you can lump them in with your invented polygamy panic.

What would you prefer we call it, then?

There are some people I've come across who are against same sex marriage who aren't anti-gay, but it's moreso because they're against marriage across the board in general.

But you're not one of those people. So what is your reasoning? I believe we've asked this of you quite a few times here of late-still waiting for an answer. What about same-sex marriage bothers you so much? Why specifically are you so opposed to it?

People have been saying that well before Obama made his statement . And those people are stupid. It's not even close to being a comparable argument and has been shot down time and time again.

For the record, though, I will say this: if everyone in a polygamous marriage was of legal age and consenting, I personally really couldn't care less if they want to live their lives that way. But as stated, that sort of marriage is a choice. Being gay is not a choice, and people shouldn't be denied the right to get married based on a trait they have no control over (and even if they did have control over it, it's still not a logical reason to deny them the right to get married).

And as for marrying dogs or robots or trees or whatever the fuck else sorts of warped comparisons the anti-same sex marriage crowd like to trot out, again: LACK OF CONSENT RENDERS THOSE NULL AND VOID. It's really, honestly not that hard a concept to grasp, people, let's get with the program here.

These people weren't going to vote for the "fascist socialist Muslim atheist black man" anyway; their tin foil hats don't seem to respond to reason, but do so happen to get perfect reception from FOX News--the network so terrified of progress that they're headquartered in the most liberal city in one of the most liberal states in the country and don't seem to be bothered by that contradiction one bit.
Yeah, it's really good to have you back .

There's a lesbian columnist here who has been bumming me out since Obama came out (ha ha ha) in support of gay marriage. She's vehemently anti-marriage, so it really killed a lot of people's buzz yesterday when she was tweeting about it.

What are the dangerous ramifications that are not anti-gay?

While I think marriage is completely unnecessary, I'm not against it. People who want to get married should have the right to be married. Period.

No, this amendment proves that there are many stupid people who condone domestic violence.


And why should the legality of marriage be decided by "the people" and not through parliamentary action?

It's really that simple. Truly do not see how it should be any other way.

Can you stop ignoring the multitude of posts that asked you what ramifications this will have?

I am interested, as a citizen of a country where gay marriage has been legal for years. I'd like to know in what way the society that I inhabit has crumbled since that landmark decision.

Yeah, that's pretty much it here. Gay marriage has been legal for... 10 years now I think.

INDY, if you tell me the ramifications, I and many others here may very well change our minds.

I had to look it up, but your guess is close. April 1st 2001 was the day it was legalized. And we all know of the horrible decline of the Netherlands since then. The lousy spring we're currently having should be enough proof.

Ah, so 11 years already. Not bad, we're still alive!

Yeah, I totally blame the gays on this horrible weather. And the fall of the government, of course. Totally their fault.

Think of all the Dutch children whose lives have been RUINED because they grew up with two mums or two dads. You just wait. In 10-20 years' time, it will have ceased to exist.

Might as well, though. We're apparently on the same slippery slope as polygamy, bestiality, and incest. Incest of course excluding the god-given, sacred, 3000-year old right to marry your first cousin in North Carolina.

To point this out is not anti-gay, guys.
