    Gay Marriage, is it right to stop it?

    Im sure this issue has been debated over and over again but since im doing research and studying Id love more opinions cause its fun.

    Also let me add not only am I looking for your opinion im looking for your reasoning if your answer is yes.

    I have discussed gay marriage many many times and have yet to hear ONE sound, reasonable, logical, non-bais, non-selfish, non-arrogant, hypercritical, non anti-american reason to "Stop" gay marriage Almost every reason I have ever heard was also used about womens rights, equal rights interracial marriage etc. they were dumb and didnt apply then and they certainly havent changed now

    now mind you, pay attention to my verbiage, I said reason to STOP it.

    That means in America I think its fine for anybody to:
    THINK its wrong, gross or offensive etc
    TEACH its wrong gross or offensive etc
    PREACH its wrong gross or offensive etc
    BELIEVE its wrong gross or offensive etc
    FEEL its wrong gross or offensive etc
    etc

    but once you try to stop it I think you wrong on so many levels.
    I cant imagine how AMERICANS think they have the right to tell two CONSENTING ADULTS who and who they cant marry lmao
    Does it get anymore pompous and arrogant and selfish and hypercritical and anti american than that. How anybody thinks they have the right to tell a person they cant marry another one is beyond me.

    I myself im not gay so i REALLY feel its non of my business but has an american I have to call BS on the other so called americans that do think its there buisness some how.

    Anyway maybe this time will be different, it actually be VERY interesting if it is different. So does anybody have ONE sound, reasonable, logical, non-bais, non-selfish, non-arrogant, non-hypercritical, non anti-american reason to "Stop" gay marriage. Who thinks they have a sound reason on why they should get to determine who two consenting adults can and can not marry.

    Let people call themselves what they want, just don't force me to call it that.

    I don't want it legally defined as marriage. Just have the state issue partnership licenses and end it at that.

    Why does it matter if its called marriage, thats in fact what it would be?
    Also the argument against partnerships is that they are not equal to marriage, status wise and legally.

    Now again I myself would be fine with partnerships IF they were the same but since Im not gay thats not my call and calling it something different comes off as bias and not granting people equal rights.

    Only logical anti-gay marriage position that I know of is the one that takes government out of the marriage business altogether. This position is usually based on not wanting to allow special privileges for folks just because they are married.

    hmmmm well not sure that would be anti-gay though unless im misunderstanding. That would just be anti government relating to marriage and in that case gay marriage would/could still be allowed just without the government involvement.

    Probably. It's just the only argument towards forbidding gay marriage that I've ever seen that has any logic and reasonableness to it.

    No problem. Most of the anti-GM crowd posts during the day. I'm SURE you'll get a few commenting, but I doubt that there will be any logic to their reasoning.
