    You have provided nothing in terms of a system defining your interpretation of morality other then a voice in your head.

    Consequently I cannot assign any more credibility to it then I would a lunatic in an asylum.

    That mysterious voice in my head and spleen, as you refer to it, has seen me through quite well to date, spanky. Though it's not really all that mysterious. It's the voice of my father, my grandfathers, and all the others that I have learned from over the years.

    You have yet to prove those acts are "improper" to begin with.
    Those acts may be "improper" for procreation,but doesn't have to be an impediment to expressing ones love to the one they love.
    And as we both seem to agreed upon,procreation isn't what marriage is all about.

    Likely true. But I have given you my rationale.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Wouldn't that imply that your moral views are yours and your alone,and that no one else are bound by them?
    Those are your ancestors speaking to YOU,not me,and I'm willing to guess no one else here.
    I too have a "Higher Power" and it tells me that there is nothing wrong with either homosexuality,nor SSM.
    My "Higher Power" has seen me through quite well to date also.

    Then I guess we'll just have to wait and see who's right at the end of the world, or at least our lives; now won't we?

    That's a cop out answer,Tig,since neither of know what really happens at the "end",now do we?
    It would have saved you typing time just typing "I have no counter response".

    At this point, no we don't. Once we get there, we will. If, as many have suggested, there is nothing; then this existance was pointless to begin with. If there IS something beyond this existance, then there almost has to be a point to this existance, and I'm not willing to risk my soul by being a willing part of the destruction of our species.

    Unless,of course,one makes this existence have a point.To me,the point to me existence is to experience and enjoy.

    Maybe so,but it may be a point that neither of us has begun to guess.Maybe the point was to make a point while existing

    I don't recall anyone demanding that you do?
    I don't recall anyone here insisting that you marry someone of the same sex?
    And you yet to demonstrate and prove that SSM would inevitable lead to the destruction of our species.

    If you feel that homosexuality is wrong,that is well within your right.
    May I suggest you not engage in it.
    If you feel that SSM is wrong,that is well within your right.
    May I suggest you not engage in it.

    If you wish to debate that homosexuality and SSM are inherently and morally wrong,that is well within your right.
    May I suggest you provide better evidence that you've provided on this thread.
