Recognition of same-sex unions in Europe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaCurrently 22 of the 51 countries in Europe recognize some type of same-sex unions, among them a majority of members of the European Union. Eight European countries legally recognize same-sex marriage, namely Belgium, Denmark, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Sweden. An additional fourteen have a form of civil union or unregistered cohabitation. San Marino only allows immigration and cohabitation of a citizen's partner. Several countries are currently considering same-sex union recognition.
Same-sex marriage in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaSame-sex marriage is legally recognized in several jurisdictions within the United States. As of January 2013, nine states—Connecticut, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, and Washington—as well as the District of Columbia and three Native American tribes—have legalized same-sex marriage, representing 15.7% of the U.S. population. In addition, Rhode Island recognizes same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions, and California, which briefly granted same-sex marriages in 2008, now recognizes them on a conditional basis.
Why do only gays get this special right on not any other sexual interest group? If "Marriage is a Civil Right" who gets excluded? Do you believe marriage is a "Civil Right"?
Gays cannot procreate through gay sexGays are not a separate species. Whatever genetic factors produce homosexuality are not possessed exclusively by homosexuals. For all we know, it might be a side effect of some other beneficial mutation. That homosexuals do not have children with each other is immaterial to a small propensity for homosexuality to be a part of what makes us human. What makes an individual survive and reproduce is not always beneficial to the species as a whole. Effectively mixing a portion out of the gene pool (though plenty of gay men and women had children with heterosexuals throughout history, and continue to do so now, also through new technologies that remove the need for heterosexual sex for them to procreate) in exchange for other benefits could be helpful to the survival of the species.
2) Let them try? So anything goes right? I thought marriage was a "civil right". You would discriminate against other people who want to change the definition of marriage to fit their needs?
3) Marriage as an institution has ALWAYS been about children. Even if infertile couples can't make a baby, that union was still man + woman and those people didn't try and change the definition of what marriage means. Marriage however has always had specific social and economic purposes that do have to do with spawning new taxpayers.
There are literally 5 posters right now who can't even get their narrative straight. It's pure emotion with the Left.
So just to make sure we are ALL on the same page
1) Is Marriage a "Civil Right"? Still waiting for the definitive answer on this one. Been pages of hand wringing, name calling, and dancing around the question. Quite hilarious.
2) If gays get the special right to change the definition of marriage to fit their needs, what other sexual interest groups get the same "right" and which ones don't?
I'd like to condense all the raging and histrionics to these 2 particular points. Thanks
Still no link? Shocking I tell you.
