    Are you seriously comparing the statuatory rape of children with same-sex marriage of consenting adults? I mean, seriously?

    It's not meant to be a direct comparison...it's meant to illustrate that which causes harm without affecting you directly. Why oppose these things if they do you no harm?

    It's the harm principle, homey.
    How is the kid being harmed?

    Right, just like NOBODY can marry someone of the same gender.

    First of all, no he doesn't have it backwards, since many of the laws and/or amendments that states have made have banned any marriage-like legal recognition of gay couples along with calling them married. And the federal government has no legal recognition available for same sex couples.

    Second, the first amendment protects all churches from ever having to perform a ceremony, including a wedding, that they don't want to do. In fact, if the church wanted to deny a couple a wedding ceremony in their church due to their race/ethnicity, that would be completely fine. Most people asking for same sex marriage would be on the side of any church who refuses to perform a same sex wedding, since those churches are protected by the Constitution.

    You wouldn't be concerned with conditions at the school that allowed that to happen?

    I don't believe it. Not CT. <read with heavy sarcasm>
    Well, people who participate in gay pride parades aren't representative of gays as a whole.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Depends on whether your situation involved statutory rape or child molestation. Statutory rape is a bit more murky imo.

    I see.

    I oppose children being harmed because it can potentially destroy society. Out of all the abusers in the world, a large percentage of them were abused themselves. Imo, people that harm children should be met with a swift and severe punishment, not for morality's sake, but for our future. End the cycle of abuse before it begins/
