Quick, hide yo' kids! The gay's gonna' get 'em!

Oh silly politicians. The day when we no longer need to deal with fools who wish to legislate their personal beliefs; the day in which we may look onwards at capital hill without a mighty ol' facepalm and headesk, seems too be a bit further away yet. If you haven't guessed by this point - keep up slow-poke, do I need to play the magical rant flute? Turn on the news! -, I'm referring to the ongoing thingy-ma-bob in regards to gay marriage. Yes, thingy-ma-bob. What? I does nus englishshs.

D'heyturrrkurrjobbs!

~And coincidently, my ability to write ~

~ Apparently ~

Allow me to get the obvious out of the way - in case you haven't also guessed by point -, I'm rather pro-gay marriage. For instance, I came to realize that it's rather odd that people argue that gay-lovers would ruin the sanctity of marriage. Yet at the same time, they're more than pro-divorce. So much for all that sanctity. You're all for big government when it's invading other peoples' bedrooms. But lord and Raptor riding Jesus forbid the same would be forced upon you. Why, that would just be unconstitutional! 

Civil liberties, who needs 'em?

Look, I'm not saying that every church should be forced to conduct gay marriages. They're not publicly owned buildings after all - but all 'em tax breaks ought to make things interesting, when DOMA finally gets overturned.. -. But why by the sense of my big toes, do people wish to inflict lesser rights on their fellow Humans'? America, land o' the free I grew up hearing. Oh aye, land o' the free bankers and restricted rights for everyone else, more like. The notion that gay marriage hurts or harms children raised in such environments has been stricken down again and again. The notion that being gay is a choice has been cut to shreds. So why by Jimmy's wee toenails do we still have to have this discussion? 

Oh, I'm sure it's making the right wing in America great friends with their extreme kin in lesser educated states. Where being gay can result in punishment or even execution. It's a ruddy joke and it's making the states out to be one of the biggest jokes of our century. Invade a little country here, restrict a little right there; free guns fo' everybody!

Apparently, one of the justices suggested that it was too early 'to rule broadly' in favour of equality. Of course he never said quality, but that's what it comes down to. Lords and gods forbid they stand up for all their people and not select groups. That'd just be unreasonable!

When it comes down to it however. When DOMA is finally passed and but a blip in our history. There will be people who ask why it took so long. What was the issue. With that in mind, how on earth can any oppose the same rights which you yourself are entitled to?

Me and my friend actually had this argument just the other day. She truly believes that being gay is a sin and by extension, a choice. She spouted the old proverb, 'hate the sin, not the sinner,' to explain why she didn't hate gays, in fact, she had gay friends, but she didn't want to encourage them to be gay, which she considered a sin. Of course I was on the other side of this trying to argue that Leviticus was being metaphorical in the statement about gays and pointed out, ironically, that I didn't like that she was wearing a shirt with mixed fabrics.

Not sure who won the argument.

Gay marriage should be legalized everywhere.You can find millions of Bible bangers who bash homosexuality and do not want gay couples to be married,but you don't see those same people gathered together talking about how divorce is wrong.Sounds rather ignorant if you ask me.

The day we no longer have a minority trying to force their self-righteous opinions on a majority will be a day to cherish! I am sooo sick of politicians and their pettiness.

Me can'ts tell if this was directed towards opponents of equal equality, or myself. Either way.

I've never understood the argument that letting someone else get married would effect someone else's. My relationships don't have value based on what relationships other people have, but on how they improve and effect my life. Hopefully we're witnessing the last-gasp of the so-called 'Moral Majority', and they will soon STFU and go away.

Well, I wouldn't want them to shut up entirely. After all, they're practically walking satire. They harm their own cause more than they help it. 

Also, that DFTBA thing is freaking AWESOME!

That's what I thought. The original source vanished, thank the flying cactus I saved it just before then.

Didn't Henry VIII ruin the sanctity of marriage by introducing divorce in Britain?

Nah, the axe did that.

You don't see all the lesbian and gay couples trying to stop straight couples from marrying so why should they?

Outside of a relgious belief, I can't really understand it myself. There was this one lad, here in Britain. Who said that gay people didn't need marriage because they had civil partnerships instead. Saying that they have equality by not having equal insinuations  I know, the guy got his face ripped off - metaphorically, that is - for that statement. For if you need to create a whole new level, a whole new box to place gay and lesbian couples - then they're not at all equal in the eyes of the law. 

It's the only secular argument I've heard, and even then it falls on its own face.

i saw this on the news this morning and honestly i don't understand why its such a big deal, they should just let gays marry its not going to affect anyone else, the people who oppose it probably haven't even considered what they would do if they were told they couldn't marry the person they loved and if it's allowed, it would not affect those people in any way so if it has nothing to do with them then why get involved? you don't see all the lesbian and gay couples trying to stop straight couples from marrying so why should they???... i short i agree ._.
