I like the photo you linked to, Eileen. :lol: The argument is that we will
have diluted marriage into something meaningless. Declining marriage
rates in Scandanavia (some say) is a result of this more open-definition.


Gay marriage and equivalent unions are legal in some countries and it hasn't happened. How long, in your opinion, does that situation need to exist before your argument can be laid to rest as the red herring our laws show it to be?


How long has it existed and what will be the effects? I say the jury is still out. Not all agree
that this is the best path for Europeans, especially given the influx of Africans, Muslims, etc. I'd love to hear from those here who have
experience with gay marriage in their country. Is it working? Do you endorse it, etc.?

For a country that keeps banging the Freedom and Human Rights drums we spend an awful lot of time as a follower where tolerance, fairness, equity, and common sense are concerned. This is only one of many such issues where America lags other nations. That characteristic US puritanism is IMO why you think "the jury is still out". It isn't and history will say so. Those pictures of people flocking to marry will be in the history books and students will be baffled over our fears and our cruelties large and small. Instead of the caption "Segregation forever!" there will be embarrassing quotes ..."
...Gay rights is the civil rights issue of this time. And you're arguing that Rosa should stop demanding full access to the bus, kindly request the addition of rows 6-10 to her allotment, and appreciate the center 3 rows bestowed upon her last year.


It's not a given that it'll happen. And quite a few Blacks resent having homosexuality linked to the civil rights struggle. I don't think all of that
resentment is bigotry but rather a sense of proportion.

A huge distraction? Yes, it's 1200+ benefits, rights, and privileges worth of distraction for those affected.


Marriage is not a given. Hell, a lot of guys also wish they could marry. You have to find a woman. Or if you are a woman, a man. Like a driver's license, one has to be able to meet the qualifications. I don't know that it is "fair," but so it goes.


Eileen wrote:@ There are already restrictions on consanguineous relationships, marital and non-marital. Same-sex marriage does not require a change to those restrictions.


We live in a country where you can serve in the military at 18 but can't legally chug a beer until you're 21. I am confident we're capable of keeping "species" and "number of applicants" off the marriage license application.


Eileen: from what I've read (and I'd forgotten
to write this), it is precisely true that those engaged in incest do want to challenge
these rules. And why not? It's not fair to discriminate, right? Their stories are compelling too.

And the 1:1 ratio surely won't be held any more sacred than the man-to-woman requirement / definition.

It isn't about the 'agenda' of the 'homosexual community', that's what we always realize when we look back on these things. Calling the right to vote part of the 'agenda' of the 'women's community'.... it seems a ridiculous notion, does it not?


My use of the word "gay agenda" was meant in the sense that
activists gays actually do a have a priority list of what they want to accomplish, from reducing / preventing AIDS, preventing job discrimination; hate attacks, etc. Not all agree that "gay marriage" should have been the focal point. It tends to be lesbians and not gay men who are behind the push. I think things may actually get more retrograde now that some feel that gays do have 'an agenda" to take on even traditional marriage. "Be careful what you wish for," as they say.

LMFAO

Torben's worried now Pete.

Torben's worried? I was shocked to find that you only had to be doing it 15 times a week to be classified as a jerk-off artist. By the way, I have a copy of that Kylie ad if anyone's interested.

You don't have to be married to recieve benefits or human rights. Whats next.. polyandry? As it stands with most all insurance you can have a "domestic partner".

A sexual lifestyle should never be in the same class as civil rights. Gay "marriage" is a joke. Call it something else, but calling it that changes the already said guidelines of the federal government.

Romans 1:26-27

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.


========================

Gen 19:1 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing [them] rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

Gen 19:4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, [even] the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

Gen 19:5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where [are] the men [the angels] which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
[ie. have sex with them!]

Gen 19:15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

Gen 19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven.

================

It's not "the civil rights issue of today" - that's such putrid BS, Eileen.

G G -

We know what was going on in Sodom.

We've got the words 'sodomy' & 'sodomite' in the English dictionary.

But just what were the population of Gomorrah up to ?

I think we should be told !

!!GAY JOKE- DO NOT READ IF EASILY OFFENDED!!




Ashes to Ashes
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Three gay men died, and were going to be cremated. Their lovers happened to be at the funeral home at the same time, and were discussing what they planned to do with the ashes.

The first man said, "My Ryan loved to fly, so I'm going up in a plane and scatter his ashes in the sky."

The second man said, "My Ross was a good fisherman, so I'm going to scatter his ashes in our favorite lake."

The third man said, "My Jack was such a good lover, I think I'm going to dump his ashes in a pot of chili, so he can tear my ass up just one more time."

The above post was a little inaccurate, so what follows is a corrected version.

3 times a week - good for the prostate.
7 times a week - things are well in hand.
10-15 times a week - time to seriously consider getting a girlfriend.
10 - 15 times a week and you have a girlfriend - time to seriously consider a career in porn.
Over 15 times a week - Congratulations! You are a master masterbater. Or, as it's more commonly known, a jerk-off artist. A sensei of hand to gland combat. Unfortunately, if you've achieved this level you most likely can't read this post!

Gay Rights is as ridiculous as Brunette Rights or Blonde Rights or Freckled Rights.

Have you noticed that if Hollywood makes a movie where a gay character is evil and mean and violent and rotten,
the Gay/Lesb Community gets outraged and protests.
They want to sue! Ban the film!

Whereby all gay characters on film & TV must be :oops: ahh, Loveable, Chic, Cool, Humorous.
That's bullsh*t.
Gays can be evil and rotten and criminal.

Gomorrah: it's basically sodomy, but the 'receiver' says in an Italian accent "go more-a, go more-a!" :oops: :)

I've always thought you must be working with a different version of the Bible than the one I'm familiar with !
