    but equal rights is. you can't argue gay marriage in a vacuum.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Of course I can! The rights should be granted by virtue of them being citizens of the United States. Nothing else matters but their rights as citizens.

    so people who want to practice incest are not citizens and have no rights?

    No one is calling for government force against homosexuals, either. I don't agree that it is a right, so therefore, I obviosly don't see the coercion.

    How convenient for you. The right to contract is being infringed upon by the government. But you don't see the coercion. Free of these laws, homosexuals would be able to be married. But you don't see the coercion. You, you and everyone else arguing against same sex marriage is arguing for government force against the rights and liberties of homosexuals. At least be man enough to admit what you're doing.

    It's willful blindness and nothing else. But in free society we seek minimization of coercion. Seeing as the individual has right to contract. That the Marriage License is a contract issued and recognized by the government. The People have the right to engage in it at their leisure. It thus takes force to prevent that, and that force is being applied right now to keep same sex couples from obtaining the contract. That's what this all comes down to. You can cry about "trampling beliefs", but none of that is happening. I'm pretty sure we aren't calling for mandated gay marriage and everyone has to gay marry. Your beliefs get to remain intact. You are still free to marry as you like. By removing this coercion against the free exercise of rights, you do not incur a greater coercion. As such, there is no logical argument one can make under the current circumstances to justly argue against same sex marriage.

    Re: SSM (Same-sex marriage) is wrong because?

    It's obvious most of the people on here are clueless, they don't understand this isn't about rights or whatever but about fags trying to destroy the family and as we all know the family (it's not "individuals", get a clue) is the bedrock of civilization. Fags live short, dangerous and unhealthy lives in addition to the fact that homosexuality is a perversion (as well as a mental disorder). The State should be promoting values that protect and strengthen the family and civilization in general, not sanctifying perverts. "Gay marriage" will also open the door to a form of legalized child abuse, that being "gay adoption". Homosexuality is a perversion that goes against all decency and as well as against nature. No amount of State power can normalize or make this perversion acceptable.

    That's pretty much the extreme argument against SSM. The one thing about this post is it highlights the irrationality of those calling for government force against the rights and liberties of the individual.
