    Re: Pa. gov: Gay marriage is like marriage of siblings

    It appears that this thread has moved away from discussion specifically about the news article - although related...

    However, I wanted to reply because I heard some additional information about this incident on a local talk radio show, while driving to work.
    Since it was a conservative talk radio show (or at least, leaning that way), and the information came from someone who called in, it must be taken with a grain or 3 of salt.

    Anyways...
    Apparently this caller said that the statement mentioned in the news article was taken out of context - Corbett was actually just making a comment about how gay marriage is illegal for the moment, much like incestual marriage is illegal.

    Which, if I understood the point, is not the same as saying gay marriage is the same as incest.


    It's an easily misunderstood statement though, if this caller was correct. In hindsight, he should have known better than to say something like that...
    --------------
    Edit: After continuing to read the article, I see that it mentions this...

    Seems that some of the persons responding didn't bother to read further than the first bit.


    Edit 2: Still, it provided a further spark for discussion in PA, so in some ways his statement was useful...heh

    Re: Pa. gov: Gay marriage is like marriage of siblings

    Do people not realize they can cite the Equal Protection Clause in the Fourteenth Amendment as a constitutional means to establish socialism? -- the Clause is that vague!

    The document reads "give me whatever the **** I want or it's discrimination" unless congress shall pass no law...

    WTF...

    actual, based on facts it makes no sense and the honest and intelligent people are pointing out how stupid it was

    people who are educated about this specific topic no this, you just arent among them, you have proved yourself factually ignorant of this topic many times and many posters have pointed this fact out.

    NO you're refering to the "Equal Protection Clause."

    I know you wish it was but legally it's NOT...

    Marriage is NOT a legal right... Not even heterosexual marriage - that is a status quo...
    marriage is a right, no amount of stomping your feet and holding your breath will change that fact
