    If you believe that God's will is expressed clearly in the Bible, then the dietary law and sodomy are not two different things at all.

    yes i am calling him smug
    those reasons have in fact been debunked, if you would like to debate any of them feel free ill gladly debunk them again

    also nobody called him smug for tating that marriage is between a man and a woman, dont know where you got that fantasy from but it seems like you need to get a lot of you facts straight LMAO

    On another note...
    Hey look at that! Another poll trolled. Good thing Centrist made the poll public.
    wow look at this common sense does NOT escape JUCON like some others, obviously it doesnt need explained since i already gave many reasons LOL

    also yes a bunch of 12 year olds spammed the poll again, they easily get their feelings hurt and yes that is why i made it public so you can see the REAL results which are 78% no and 22% yes

    I think you hit the nail on the head, Centrist. It is fine to believe gay marriage is wrong, but once you start trying to actually block it you move into the realm of being un-America. People can be against gay marriage all they want... though I disagree with them, they are still entitled to their opinion. But once people start denying one group of people what another group of people have, that's when I have a problem. If that isn't discrimination, I don't know what is?

    Edit: Centrist, you left out the "marriage is for starting a family and procreating" argument. Also false.
    Actually, this was a central question to Walkers decision. The State of CA diddn't argue this case very well, IMO.

    The state of California didn't argue it at all. The Governor and Attorney General refused to do so. Protect Marriage, the group that created Prop 8, were the ones who argued the case.

    It had to be closed because at around 2000 post it becomes taxing on the server, thanks independent_thinker2002

    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

    Slippery 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!

    Now let's give a reason NOT to stop it:

    A marriage is a private contract. Unless someone is being harmed in some way there is no legitimate reason to stop it. The same goes for polygamy, polyandry, mixed racial marriages (these used to be against the law), etc.

    Marriage is NOT a legitimate function of government.

    So what? Are you so attached to a word that you're unwilling to share even if what you're describing is 100% identical?

    If so, that's... bizarre.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You're welcome to believe in your imaginary friends, but like it or not, America has a SECULAR government and your fantasy beliefs have no place whatsoever in it. We already have a perfectly good word for what's going on, it's called "marriage" and there's no need to make another one up to appease your imaginary father figure in the sky.

    Actually, marriage is not a private contract, it is a function of tax law, etc. If you don't want to get married, don't. It's easy. Don't get a license, don't go through a ceremony, just live together and stop worrying about it. Most of all, stop trying to tell everyone else what to do.

    You're just as bad as the anti-gay-marriage hypocrites.
