    I read the founders, federalist papers, constitution, the only reason I got into this thread is because agent j in his op ,stated TEACHING, and I asked who's doing the teaching, any use of force on people who have not violated law is repugnant to me.

    again I have opinion and you stated you have facts, and as I pointed out many times, other people in our world think your facts are wrong and there's are right, so again what makes you right compared to there facts....can you answer how you have sole authority on the facts discussed.
    No "like" given.
    IMO, OPINIONS can never be right nor wrong, but FACTS can be...This is we we dig for evidence......and this changes over the millennia..
    Its not good just to read the ancient writings(Constitution, Fed papers, Bible) of man....nor the selected writings(conservative or liberal)...this is a trap many, if not all of us , fall into...

    Anyway lets keep it going since we had some great talks, some people even woke up and saw theres no reason and some had some at least semi-sensible new angles but still fell short. Not to mention I wanna continue because its funs and supports my research.

    Heres the link below and Ill also repost the OP.

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...ight-stop.html

    Also just for an FYI the poll was spammed and the new one will be public but last CC (Captain Courtesy) checked it mirrored the results of the others I have conducted under THIS premise or is it right to stop not what you believe and that was AROUND 75% no and 25% yes.

    Now on to the OP
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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-bias, non-selfish, non-arrogant, non-hypercritical, non anti-american reason to "Stop" gay marriage. Almost every reason I have ever heard was also used about women’s rights, equal rights, interracial marriage etc. the reason were dumb illogical then and the most certainly still are today, even more so since not only common sense and facts proves them wrong but history.

    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

    and i also believe and support in your rights to do so but once you try to stop it I think you wrong on so many levels.
    I can’t 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, arrogant, selfish, hypercritical and anti american than that. How anybody thinks they have the right to tell a consenting adult they cant marry another consenting adult is beyond me.

    Also to be clear Im also not saying its wrong for you to VOTE on the subject everybody has that right of course.

    I myself am 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 business some how.

    Anyway maybe this time will be different, it’ll 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 why they should get to tell one American consenting adults they cant marry another consenting American adult.


    Also for some reference Ill try to list the general reasons people thought of that have been thoroughly debunked.

    Religion/god/bibleMeaningless and debunked

    Slipper slope argument: I should be able to marry my dog, pedophiles marring children etc. – Ludicrous and debunked

    Marriage is between a man and woman – this is a lie/opinion. Meaningless and debunked

    Morals – your morals are subjective, shouldn’t be forced on others and your morals aren’t effected one bit, you still get to believe in them as you see fit. Meaningless and debunked

    Gay Parents will “turn” their kids gay – LMAO this is also a uneducated fantasy. It has been proven that that children raised by gay parents are no more likely to be or not be gay. It has also been proven that children raised in a multi-parent home on average do better than a single parent home no matter the sex. Ignorant and debunked

    Churches will lose their rights – another silly argument that appeals to emotion and could probably be added under the “slipper slope” argument as well. Churches are already protected and will never lose their rights, they discriminate RIGHT NOW against who they want including STRAIGHT couples and will be able to continue to do so under the first amendment. Ludicrous and debunked

    Alright heres the most current update and lets have fun!
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    OFFICIAL COUNTER
    how many sound, reasonable, logical, non-bias, non-selfish, non-arrogant, non-hypercritical, non anti-american reason are there to "Stop" gay marriage

    GOOD REASONS: 0

    After all is said and done, why not allow it, if at the same time all subsidies for marriage are cancelled? If tax money is involved? Then I see no reason to allow it.

    Stopping people from having equal rights is wrong. Absolutely wrong.

    yep and some people simply dishonestly say or have themselves dishonestly convinced its not an equal rights matter, the same way people did with minorities, women and interracial marriage.

    "IF" a person is trying to STOP others from having equal rights it just makes them feel better to deny that fact and say its not really equal rights. Very convenient but nobody falls for it.

    OK.



    Other people do not have facts. That's the point. The facts that demonstrate that homosexuality being normal are both through definitions and through research that has been peer reviewed and accepted as valid for quite some time. Therefore, since it is a fact that homosexuality is normal, and that you are OK with having facts taught in schools, you obviously have no problem with the fact that homosexuality being normal being taught in schools.
    i believe i stated very clearly other people opposite of you....not including me, say you are wrong and they are right, and i am sure in their minds they have read about it to.

    i again am against the idea of force, any force used to teach something other people opposite your facts..... is repugnant to me.

    force is repugnant.

    they are not ancient, and your play on words, to make it sounds as though we need to get past it [as some age of mystery] fails.

    again i stated opinion, CC stated what he has is facts.

    i am sure even you can find very easily find other people in our world who say his facts are wrong, and they have the facts........so with a fact vs fact......what makes CC side fact?

    becuase he, agent j, or you say it is?

    i am against ANYONE ,ANYONE, who would use force of government on other people, who have not violated the rights of other citizens.............force is an abomination to me!

    But, in a sense, force is an inherent part of teaching children - whatever schooling environment they are in.

    In many cases, children would rather be doing something other than studying, I'm sure.
    Education.

    well children are not adults, and they do not get to set policy on what is taught,

    however parents whom send these children, some would like them taught a certain moral position, while other parents object that that certain position.

    now why should one position be taught over another since both claim they have the facts.

    the idea that the one that objects and is told, don't like it leave!........or your child will be taught this!

    you will notice that [position]......can be from either side.

    that is why government is not a moral authority, ...moral values comes from ones parents....not the government.
