That was a business, not a church. A business is not allowed to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. This is already the case, and same-sex marriage does not change this. Irrelevant. Has your church changed its opinion? Performed any ceremonies? Have you changed your beliefs? No? Nothing has been forced upon you because of same-sex marriage.
Comparing gays to pedophiles? Wow, how do you live with such hate?Not like everyone else. Group Marriage and Polygamists and any other weird sexual perversion doesn't have the same rights. You're also dodging the question. If gays can force institutions to change their meanings and beliefs, then why can't individuals and groups force gay institutions such as pride parades to change theirs? Polygamists should be able to force gays to change their pride parade to include Polygamy pride, or heck how about pedophiles forcing Gay Pride Parades to celebrate "Pedo Pride"?
You just admitted that it's not up to you to decide what the point of someone's marriage is.A "nebulous tradition"? It's a tradition that has always had specific biological, social and economic purposes. Even the Spartans recognized this and they had rampant homosexuality within their culture. The concept of marriage has always been classified by gender. The whole POINT was to bring the genders together. Gay Marriage is a sham. Pointless and pretend play acting.
I am an American, therefore I believe that freedom is a morally superior argument. Gay marriage does not cause harm to others, therefore the government has no business restricting it. Which one of us was for "small government" again?The acceptance of gay marriage is not morally superior to the opposition of it. Where do you get your concept of morality from? What moral authority (beyond The Mob or The State) has made this decree?
Pedophilia and burning down churches cause provable harm. Therefore the state has interest in restricting it. Also, "radical gay mafia." Wow, man. You really regurgitate the talking points well.Using that logic if enough people supported and voted for pedophilia would that make it morally right? How about burning down churches? You're forgetting that even in CA gay marriage was voted down and still the radical gay mafia wouldn't accept the will of the people.
That wasn't the "logic" at all, but keep hittin that straw man! Oh hey, another original phrasing "down everyone's throats." You sure are obsessed with the sexual aspects of this discussion. Here I'm talking about marriage contracts and how the government recognizes them, and you keep bringing up GAY SEX GAY SEX IN OUR THROATS. I wonder what Freud would say about that.So this notion that if more than 50% support that it makes it "morally superior" is laughable on it's face. Not even the radical gays accepted that "logic" which is why they are using the liberal courts to ram their agenda down everyone's throats trying to rationalize and normalize sodomy and sexual perversion.
A separate but equal institution, you mean? Gee, I wonder why people might not like the idea. Marriage is more than just a legal contract. But the government's role is not to decide that for you. It is not their job to require married couples to have children, or to be Christian, or to be straight.Marriage is more than a "legal contract". It is an institution with specific biological, social and economic purposes. Gays should have created their own institution of marriage if this issue was about "legal contracts" instead of trivializing the purpose of marriage as an institution.
Cry some more, take your ball, go home. How do you live with such hate? That's not healthy, man. Gay marriage doesn't affect you in any way. Maybe it's better if you just let go.Government should get out of marriage since marriage is now pointless
