    Re: New York State Senate Votes Down Gay Marriage Bill

    So if a man can marry a man, can a bi-sexual marry a man AND a woman? Why should he be forced to choose? How about two men and one woman? Why should there be a limit? Why not a goat? I mean, what business is it of mine if a man wants to marry a goat?

    Sounds crazy, but so did gay marriage not too many years ago.

    Is marriage a human right in your view? To me, it's more of a symbolic ceremonial rite, more aligned with religious activity, unless you are talking about the legal right to inherit money and/or other assets upon death.

    Once you decide that "man and woman" is no longer a fundamental paet of marriage, then there is no sound argument to limiti marriage to two people.

    I think God will destroy the world before gays are a suitable alternate life style........He did it with Sodom and can do it again........We shall see but so far its going in the wrong direction for your side......More and more states like liberal ones like New York and California are saying no to Gay marriage........

    there's an inherent desire to see oneself as superior, and the only way some people can accomplish that is to make someone else inferior.
    Hmmm I am as hard core as you get and that reason means nothing to me or to any of my Conservative friends........

    How about a brother and sister, a father and daughter, etc in marriges without sex for the benefits provided.......How about a man and two women.....How about polygamysts?.........if you approve gay marriage you have to approve those kinds of unions.........

    I meant the legal rights and benefits that go along with being married. I should have specified that.

    I believe that the ceremonial aspect of a marriage should be between the two (or more) people getting married and any family/friends/religious institution/etc. that they wish to share the moment with them.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
