    other - social security will become insolvent even sooner and the case of marital fraud cases will rise causing an even less efficient government structure then what we have today.

    I really really want those opposed to same sex marriage to participate in this one.

    Oops. Forgot to add "I won't be, none of my business". So I vote "other".

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

    But in all seriousness, I don't know how my big toe would be harmed if my arm were broken; however I guess you would have to look at sociaty as a whole to get that.

    We don't know what the effects on society will be in several generations.

    After all we didn't know that welfare would break up the Black family and lead to our current Thug Life in the Black community when it was first inaugurated but everyone saw it was a good thing in the short term.

    We (those of my political ideology) most certainly did know this. We also knew that the civil rights legislation of the 60's would inevitably lead to quotas.

    Yeah, that totally wasn't the sharp move from free market to corporate (i.e. fascist) capitalism. The vast restriction on social mobility in the system and the rules set up to keep the rich rich and the poor poor. Totally welfare's fault in total.

    Who's "we"?

    Who's "everyone"?

    Sensible people opposed being robbed to provide welfare, for strictly obvious and current reasons.

    And guess what? If you can't come up with an objection based on current society, and you just admitted you can't, you have no reason to assume it will be harmful to future generations.

    Okay. We can all understand that.
    Even though we agree more often than not, Scarecrow, I've seen how you treat people in debates. I'd sooner debate a pit-bull on who that bone by his doghouse belonged to. Not because you're such a superior debater, but because you chew people up and make it personal, you never acknowlege a point someone else makes, and you drag it on forever without end.

    Not intrested, thanks. You can misconstrue what I said, that is that gays are somehow "in chains" because they don't have a right to an institution that has historically been man-woman-children in almost every culture and time on the planet, if you want. I'm not engaging you in debate in this thread; you're salivating at the thought of ripping into someone with personal attacks over this issue and I'm not intrested in being your T-bone.

    Bye.

    I'd have to confer pecuniary and social benefits upon yet another group of people. How's that?

    You'll have to pay them if they get married?

    Shouldn't that then be the issue, not the fact that some people are wrongly denied the freedom to marry who they wish?
