    Re: Labor Dept.: Same-Sex Spouses Have Benefit Rights

    I'm always pleased to see another step toward complete equality. It's too damned slow, though. SCOTUS should declare laws that forbid equal marriage rights to be discriminatory and unconstitutional. Then I'll be satisfied.

    So who is next in line?

    Muslim pedophiles? Transgendered homosexuals? Unisex bathrooms? Father/adult son marriages? Polygamy?

    Where does it stop?

    Well, while I have no trouble with transgendered homosexuals or unisex bathrooms, as I'm an adult and capable of self control, pedophiles can be be opposed for justifiable reasons regardless of religion, as can father / son marriages. So this type of illogical bigotry you posted above doesn't really hold up.

    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.

    Muslims already have equal rights. Pedophiles do not, since pedophilia is illegal.

    Transgendered individuals are technically not homosexual; however, they should have exactly the same rights as any other adult human in the country.

    Bathrooms, unisex or otherwise, are not people and as such are not entitled to constitutional rights.

    If both father and son are adults, and wish to marry, they should have the right to do so; however, incestuous relationships are illegal in most areas.

    Polygamy between consenting adults is fine with me; however, polygamous relationships are also illegal in most areas.

    In summation:

    Declaring that homosexuals must be given the same constitutional rights and protections as heterosexuals, including the rights and privileges afforded by marriage may affect transgendered individuals if they are refused the right to marry the person of their choosing because of their transgendered status.

    Muslims, pedophiles, bathrooms, incest and polygamy will not be affected one way or the other.

    Will this knowledge allow you to sleep better at night?

    So transgendered marriage is next on the list? I'm really just wondering what your line is. You're not answering the question. I see a lot of "gays demand equality and "constitutional rights" rhetoric, but that's all that is. Rhetoric.

    Bathrooms, unisex or otherwise, are not people and as such are not entitled to constitutional rights.
    Not speaking of rights in regards to this but you knew that

    If both father and son are adults, and wish to marry, they should have the right to do so; however, incestuous relationships are illegal in most areas.
    I didn't mention sex in regards to their relationship, but apparently you think this situation would be pretty cool

    Polygamy between consenting adults is fine with me; however, polygamous relationships are also illegal in most areas.
    Should Polygamy be legal in all 50 states? I'm just curious where you draw the line personally.

    In summation:

    Declaring that homosexuals must be given the same constitutional rights and protections as heterosexuals, including the rights and privileges afforded by marriage may affect transgendered individuals if they are refused the right to marry the person of their choosing because of their transgendered status.

    Marriage (Gay Marriage especially. The Founders would have been repulsed by such a filthy concept) isn't a Constitutional right and secondly why should only gays be given the special right to change the definition of marriage from man + woman to man + ? or woman + ?

    The Institution and Tradition of marriage has always had specific social and economic purposes. It's an exclusive club designed to bring the opposite sexes together. Why should only gays be allowed to twist it's meaning and get access to that club over any other perverted sexual victim group.

    In other words, you equate homosexuality in America with pedophilia, Muslims, bathrooms, polygamy and incest around the globe. Apparently the concept of consenting adults in the USA eludes you. So, there's nothing to discuss in a thread with the topic of "Same Sex Spouses Have Benefit Rights". You may wish to move your link to the ME forum, where you can express your horror at how Yemenis treat their children, since it has nothing to do with... well, anything in this thread.

    I didn't equate anything. You were the one who said this was "the first step to equality"

    I asked you where you draw the line. If "consenting adults" is the only criteria you need to determine your morality, then that's all you needed to say. In some Muslim cultures pedophilia is acceptable and practiced. If someone doesn't agree with that does that mean they hate Muslims?

    agreed, it is too slow but the writing is on the wall now, this is why many people said the fall of DOMA wasnt such a small thing but a catapult into the fast lane.
