    Default Gay Marriage

    Yeah - this thread is full of potential, huh?

    Look, I'm not looking for any flack here, or even trying to stir the pot.

    I really don't care about this anymore, but I have to ask: Is there something wrong me because I'm so sick and tired of this topic being shoved in my face and down my throat? I swear to god the whole gay marriage / gay agenda is darn near militant about making you feel like crap and a hate criminal for not fully supporting their agenda.

    I don't go shoving my beliefs into people's faces - yet it seems wherever I turn I'm getting this shoved in mine (no pun intended!).

    I'd be sick over anything constantly being forced-fed to me, it just doesn't pertain to this subject, but because this is what is current right now.

    Is anyone else sick of this non-stop indoctrination because if it's just me, I'll shut-up.

    Are you referring to this thread, or to gay marriage?

    There's been civil(ish) threads about this at other boards.

    What I will say, to comment on the above, is that let's remember who brought Prop 8 to the ballot box.

    I don't have a problem with happy marriages.

    ohhhh, you are talking about homosexuals. I would be willing to trade rights. They can bitch about not having sex and the hetero's can go around looking marvelous.

    I could give a fuck about gays getting married. I want more important issues solved such as 15 trillion in debt,10% unemployment ,and extension of Bush tax cuts.

    I could care less if gay marriage is legalized. Most of the people opposed to gay marriage are opposed to it because they think God actually said many years ago that marriage was between a man and a woman.

    And maybe Jesus did state that marriage was to be between a man and a woman. But if he did, I would think that was more or less because back then people didn't really know who or what they could marry. People didn't know if they had to marry other humans. Maybe they thought they could marry animals. Who knows?


    Personally I think it's time to change some of that school of thought.

    if you want a politically correct, civil-minded response, count me out. On the other hand, if you'll accept brash, ignorant, distasteful responses I'd be glad to contribute.

    Just kidding. Like others said, there are way more important issues going on in the world right now that demand more attention.

    I'm hetero but I have several friends and colleagues that are gay and lesbian and quite frankly we just don't have these conversations. I don't think any less of them because they are gay.

    Whether they want the same little piece of paper I have that says I'm married to my wife doesn't really change things. With or without the paperwork they're still going to live together and carry on as though they're married, so it makes no difference to me.

    Personally, I always thought that option to bolt out of the relationship if it's not working out without having to worry about divorce lawyers, effects on children, etc was always kind of admirable, but if they want to deal with the same complexities as the rest of us, more power to them.

    If our government didn't screw up the tax system by offering huge rebates for being married, and if our social system didn't screw up by enabling married couples to have more privileges such as allowing married people to get the same health benefits etc etc then this wouldn't even be discussed politically.

    This topic is a lot like abortion, it should NOT be a political issue.

    And if people want to "protect the sanctity of marriage" then they should also be trying to outlaw divorces.

    Dude, you are really pretty funny.

    People married bears, zebras, trees and loafs of bread before Jesus showed up and told them they couldn't? That's awesome.

    Who knows? Anybody who's ever read the Bible.

    The can's and can not's were laid out pretty early on in the old testament. I think even before Moses though, most humans knew through good old fashioned God given intuition that marrying a porcupine would not bring blessing in to their life.

    I really don't see any problem w/two people being married-gay or hetero. I think a gay couple should enjoy the same "rights" as a man and wife-i.e. insurance benefits, tax benefits, and the like. Let's be honest, it wasn't that long ago when inter-racial relationships were taboo and forbidden and "wrong"-well, they're still that way in the backwards hick area I call home. Time's they are a changing.

    Why do you speak about the Bible as if it is a historical record of what actually happened back then?

    Regardless. Religion will never be something I and certain others here agree on or can discuss in a civil manner. I have realized this after reading some of the posts made by others who get kind of touchy when anybody questions the Bible.

    So back to gay marriage.
