That's why the government gives them financial incentives to get married, because married people do more to financially strengthen the country.
    So you have changed your position from

    "What makes you think government is interfering in marriage?"

    to

    "Government has a good reason to interfere in marriage."?

    ok....

    I'm truly ashamed of my fellow California voters.

    The burden of proof that society will not decline should always be overwhelmingly on innovators. Society is too complex to think overwise.

    To claim that the endeavors of people that you do not know nor interact with in any way affects you to the point that you would change a big decision you've made in your life discloses a very high degree of insecurity.

    If people believe that gay marriage compromises the legitimacy of marriage on religious grounds, then hardly anyone in a society that is so liberal about premarital and anal sex is married at all.

    Dammit, I didn't mean to post that again, I meant to edit it.

    Sorry...

    ...but anyway, you get the point. The fact is that marriage shouldn't be confined to any sort of relationship. It raises the question as to what is legitimate in a society that has abandoned most of these archaic restrictions.

    Telling a gay couple that they can't get married by law is like telling a little boy that he isn't allowed to associate with girls because he was caught masturbating.

    so what you're saying is, there should be no restrictions whatsoever on an institution that gives fiscal benefits to people? that is a very expensive mentality, is it not? unless you are arguing for the discontinuation of state-sponsored unions altogether then I don't see how this could make any sense.

    I'm sorry, but where did you read that?

    Anyway, "fiscal benefits" are 100% irrelevant to sexual orientation, wouldn't you say?

    not at all. if marriage is going to be redefined to include everybody, as you suggested, fiscal benefits for marriage are going to need to be discussed.

    What does society gain from preventing gays from getting married?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.
