It's been a busy week for gay marriage supporters, first Iowa took the step in the right direction and now this morning, Vermont followed suit. DC also voted to recognize gay marriage from other states within the last few hours.
Eh i really dont care but from a scientific stand point it is considered wrong. We are here to procreate a man and a man can not do that alone. But if gay people want to lose 50% too works for me!
OHHH, my head hurts so bad when I read stuff like the just above...
Otherwise, we're talking about a human rights revolution, folks!
I'm not gay but I never had children. Does that make me less of a person?
Well if you are less of a person, then so am I, Uninvited.
Like I said, a headache.
Being a 10th amendment guy--I respect states to choose either side of the issue here. I completely respect if Utah is not comfy with same-sex marriages, and I completely respect if Vermont legalizes same-sex marriages.
I really don't care which way the state goes--as long as there is a place for both respective sides to live peacefully (if they choose to be separated), and that they respect and don't slaughter each other.
On that note, I don't feel that either side has a god-given path to legality or illegality on the issue--that one side will eventually conquer. Start spewing that garbage out, and your credibility will surely devalue.
As said before, my primary choice is taking the term "marriage" out of the whole equation. Civil unions for both--take it to your religious institution if you want the marriage badge, heterosexual or homosexual
I couldn't have said it better myself.
I agree with this too.
And the "marriage is for procreation" argument is such complete BS. My widowed grandfather remarried last year at 79 - should he be prevented from doing so because he and his wife will never have children? Should couples who are infertile or who simply don't want children be prevented from getting married?
I have to agree as well. Civil Unions for all and allow those who want a religious "marriage" have theirs according to their own beliefs.
What bothers me about this issue is how far the anti-gay marriage supporters have gone. In California during the last elections, they ran ads stating how if allowed it will harm children because they will have to "watch gay marriage." Sincere belief is one thing, dirty ads like that are another.

If gay marriage does not infringe on the first amendment why are christians trying to stop it from becoming legal?

I know we already have a same-sex marriage thread in Politics, but that one has already grown so large that I thought I would start something different here. Generally, my political leanings are Libertarian, which...

I will refrain from accusing anyone of holding ill will towards homosexuals, unless you flat out lie (like saying gay people are pedophiles).What I am looking for is your best argument (s) against gay marriage, in favor...

I know this topic can be a lightning rod, but i believe that a civilized people or even a civilized society must be able to have a public discourse on vital issues without vitriol or caricature. I may not always agree...

1) Being gay is not natural. Real people always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people...
