    nope, no strawman there at all, he was simply pointing out the dishonesty of some who think "traditional" marriage is "under attack" and needs "protection"

    it was sarcasm pointing out that traditional marriage is not under attack nor does it need protection from people who support equal rights LMAO

    Glad to see her doing this.

    I cant beleive this is an issue again. Just when we're finally getting back to talking about important things like taxes, spending, and debt, here comes the media to steer us back to social issues. And no doubt liberals will hammer it to try and make republicans look bad again.

    Good, every Republican who whines about homosexuality or abortion strike me as a dinosaur on the wrong side of history. Now if we can only get them to change on the War on Drugs we might actually have a worthwhile Republican party again... maybe.

    Traditional marriage (a short time ago compared to American history) was just between a man and woman of the same race.

    Traditions change, and so will this. You and others are on the losing side of history in this regard. SSM will be legal one day despite the backwards efforts by some conservatives. That will be a great day.

    I didn't say it "attacked it". I said there is no need for it. There are activists who are attacking the definition of marriage however, and they need to be opposed politically.

    Same Sex Marriage is pointless. Marriage is an institution with a specific purpose. It binds the opposite sexes together to create the family unit. It propagates the species. There is no reason to grant homosexuals the special right to marry people of the same sex. If we start granting special rights to small groups of people with specific sexual appetites, it will only create an unnecessary slippery slope.

    I don't feel the need to change the definition of marriage, or turn the institution on it's head, to appease a small group of people with specific sexual appetites. Spartan Warriors engaged in homosexuality but still upheld and respected marriage as an institution with a specific purpose. Gay Marriage simply doesn't follow natural law. It has no real social or economic purpose. It also denies children the right to be raised by their natural mother or father which is imperative for psychological and emotional development.

    The only thing I see from people who support Gay Marriage is an attempt to objectify any opposition as "bigots", or characterize them as"on the wrong side of History". They offer no substance as to why Gay Marriage is absolutely necessary. From the 45 goals of Communism:

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy.
    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

    Comparing Gay Marriage to the real struggle Blacks have suffered in this country demeans blacks and is racist.

    It's perfectly acceptable to remove racial boundaries that existed within the culture of specific societies. After all, it was a union that still fit within the boundaries of Natural Law and the definition of marriage, where as Gay Marriage does not. The definition of marriage wasn't changed to remove those racial boundaries. Gay Marriage changes the definition of marriage to allow people to marry someone of the same sex. If we change it for gays, other groups with specific sexual appetites will come along and demand their Civil Rights are being violated too and demand to be included as well.
