    As always, a ridiculous comparison. Same sex marriage is based on the decision of consenting, human adults. And consenting adults can do to one another whatever they both (or all) agree to, no? Only a fascist could possibly think otherwise. Don't you think so?

    I don't agree with K-1, but your assertion is just as ridicules. Under the law their are many things two or more human adults cannot do to one another with consent. Then to say only a fascist would think otherwise basically says you don't really understand the meaning of the word "fascism."

    Interesting. Could you provide a list of things that two consenting adults cannot do with each other under the law?

    I can.

    1. Be paid for sex.
    2. Smoke marijuana, or use other illegal substances.
    3. Drink alcohol, if under the age of 21 (but still adults).
    4. Make a wager on a sport or game of chance (e.g. poker).
    5. Assisted suicide.
    6. Drive without seatbelts.
    7. Ride a motorcycle without helmets.
    8. Buy/sell sex toys in Alabama.
    9. Read an obscene comic book.
    10. Watch obscene pornography.
    11. Gay marriage.


    I'm sure some of my fellow libertarians can add to this short list.

    If you had asked me how I voted on that ballot you would have discovered that I declined to cast a vote on the issue either way. SD still passed a gay 'marriage ban, but they did it without my support.

    Any issue before the public is the business of the public. If you don't like my opinion, don't ask for my vote/money.

    • General Arson.
    • Burn their own tires on their own property, even if in a rural aria.
    • Cannibalism.
    • Create realistic depictions of pedophilia even if they do not involve children in any way.
    • Compromise the structural integrity of their home while living in it.
    • One consenting adult can not bury the other consenting adult on their own property if that property is not zoned as a grave yard.


    Those are a few off the hip, I'm sure there are more examples.

    I'm glad you think everyone should undergo counseling before getting married, but that doesn't address the question of equal protection unless you go that last step and say that if SS couples did jump through your hoops, you'd support marriage for them. Do you?
    Yes, I did. I already said that.

    I see no reason why gays couldn't or shouldn't be accepted if the only thing different between their relationship and a hetero couple starting a family are the sexes involved.

    Regardless of sex, couples who simply want to live together have no business getting married. We can thank childless hetero couples for enabling the modern gay 'marriage movement. Their selfishness is empowering hyper-individualism, which has proven to be a socially destructive force.
