Janusdog: Cythraul: gilgigamesh: First of all, this ban doesn't add anything more than does a second condom.

Second, demographically speaking, these people are on the wrong side of history, and will be dead soon. What seems like a step backward in reality is just that last desperate gasp before drowning.

Give it five years. These idiots will be but a shameful memory.

If it's a matter of 'waiting for old people to die out for progress to being,' it'll take longer than five years. My generation (Generation 'X') isn't much better than the baby boomers. So it'll be left up to the millenials (spelling), which will take about 15 to 20 years for them to get 'congress aged.'

In my opinion, that's far too long to wait. Fifty years is long enough.

Huh? Most of the research I have seen says Gen is is better than the Boomers on this issue. Not as much as Millenials, but I think a majority are still for gay civil rights.


Could you cite that (sorry to ask you to do the work for me)? I'm wondering just how much better than the Baby Boomers Gen-X really is.

Would you please allow me to move out of the state before you go nuking it? Thanks.


I won't live in a state that votes for this kind of shiat. Yeah I'm basically stuck in the Northeast but whatever. My husband and I have each turned down job opportunities in the South and Texas because of stupid laws. If more people with badly wanted degrees and job skills did the same states would eventually notice by all the tech industries leaving.

I know, right!? I hate f*ggots for hating us, too! Now that we've denied them their basic civil rights again, let's go tie one to a fence post, sodomize him with our clearly not-gay dicks, and then kill him. You know, for funsies.

Quite the opposite, actually. The more extreme the restrictions, the easier it is for the Federal courts to justify overturning it.

Aarontology: Deuteronomy 22:28-29

28 If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, 29 he shall pay her father fifty shekels[a] of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives.

Unless you support this in addition to your opposition to gay marriage, then it's all about being a bigoted shiatstain. It's right there in the Bible folks. God Himself commands victims of rape to marry their attackers, so you'd better support that aspect of traditional biblical marriage.


I'm not at all religious but I'd support that one just for the giggles.

Well, my problem is that I'm currently poor. I can't really afford to move out of the state right now, but I guess I should definitely start working on that. I really am tired of living in such a backwards state. I'm tired of feeling like a second class citizen.

The whole thing was a masturbatory exercise anyway. Same sex marriage was already prohibited. This "ban" was just a nice big middle finger to homosexuals.

Also, as much as I dislike the social conservative side of my state, it's still my home. I'm not sure if I could fully be comfortable living outside of the south, as weird as that may seem to others. But at this point, I imagine it's a matter of what's more important to me: familiar culture / environment, or equal rights. Hmm, tough decision.

You punk kids are forgetting something. People grow more conservative with age. So unless you start killing people off by the time they're 50, we will never be rid of this problem. I say this as a 50 year old. Conservatism is like a creeping slow disease eating away at your brain as you age.

Cythraul: DoBeDoBeDo: I'm not exactly sure what everyone is all pissed about. All this did was make it so SOCTUS has more reason to hear the next case about gay marriage and civil rights from NC.

In fact everyone should be supporting multiple state amendments, the louder they get the more SOCTUS has to act.

SCOTUS only has to rule once, I imagine, and that would be on Prop-8. The impending DOMA challenge may be another matter.

Even if SCOTUS rules that prop-8 is unconstitutional, I worry it'll be like Roe vs. Wade all over again, and state after state will past one measure after another trying to limit gay rights piecemeal fashion.


It wasn't until 1992s Planned Parenthood vs. Casey that that really started happening.
 
2012-05-09 09:57:13 AM  

Aarontology: Serious Black: Add onto that list that it's okay to arrange forced marriages between male and female slaves, to force widows who have not produced a male heir to marry their brother-in-law, to allow men to take concubines and have multiple wives, and to stone women who can't prove they are a virgin to their husband on their wedding night.

Ah yes, can't forget about that. I'm sure these totally not bigoted people will be trying to enact those laws any day now.


Agreed. It's all cherry-picking rather than trying to make a cohesive whole out of it. One of my favorite examples:

"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." - Genesis 2:24 KJV, regarding Adam and Eve's relationship

"And they lifted up their voice, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother in law; but Ruth clave unto her." - Ruth 1:14 KJV, regarding Ruth and Naomi's relationship

Why would the Bible use the exact same word to describe the nature of an opposite-sex couple's relationship with each other and a same-sex couple's relationship with each other?

So that means that Mitt "Do the opposite of Obama" Romney think gay marriage should be legal and that straight marriages should not be recognized.

I guess that's true. Anecdotically, it certainly seems true. But if it is, how have gay rights gotten as far as it has?
 
2012-05-09 09:58:39 AM  
Lets be specific.
They didn't approve a gay marriage ban - they already -had- that.
What they did do, is say, in their state Constitution, essentially that no gay couple shall ever, EVER be treated the same as a heterosexual couple.
You will never have any sort of sanctioned union. No marriage, no union, no partnership.
You will never have the right to visit your long time significant other as they lay dying in a hospital.
You will never have access to their death benefits, their pensions, their social security. As far as the state is concerned, you will never be anything.
You will never be a couple for adoption. In any way.
You will never gain these tax benefits because your penis, or lack of, likes ther penises, or lack ofs.

Most of these places say "We don't want a marriage, but they can have civil unions." North Carolina basically said instead. "yer a bunch of butt-humpin, clam-diggin abominations, get the fark out of our state."

CPennypacker: tenpoundsofcheese: They are following 0bama's lead. He is against gay marriage.

You're right. No president has done less for gays than Obama.


Even if he were of that opinion, which he's not, he's not actively trying to prevent gay marriage.

They had a NC legislator on yesterday who said she doesn't believe in gay marriage but was voting against the amendment. It is possible to separate your personal feelings from proper legislating. If that weren't the case, we would not have the Constitution today. That document everyone pays lip service to but don't really understand or respect.
 
2012-05-09 09:59:12 AM  
Gay marriage loses every vote by the public, so it's not just NC.
 
2012-05-09 09:59:16 AM  
Civil rights should never be put to a majority vote, as the majority will always vote to oppress. This was an example of 3 wolves and a sheep debating dinner.

Gen X is slightly under majority approve but not by much, and happily their attitudes are changing. And they are better than Boomers.

I'm stuck in Maryland for five months after the election. Hopefully we do the right thing and polls show it won't pass but it won't be from lack of trying by out of states interests. No it's not officially on the ballot yet, but it will be. *sigh*

I say the next thing on the ballot should be an initiative saying you cannot get married unless you have a combined household income of at least $50K* and both parties need to have a college education. I really think this needs to become a ballot issue. Since it's okay to vote on personal rights if we do it to strengthen, and there actually is empirical evidence that marriages that are made up of educated, financially sound people are stronger marriages and produce happier, healthier children, this will be a winner.

I love that you mentioned that context is important. Why? Well, what's the contemporaneous context for the clobber verses in Paul's letters? I can assure you that the context of the homosexual acts he decried was not that the people engaged in these acts were in love with each other and trying to express that love. No, the context was that soldiers were conquering new lands and raping their male prisoners of war. How can you remotely compare these two different acts? Does the intention behind an act really not matter?
