Scary tag.

"forced on all of America."

Subby doesn't understand how the world works.

Will I have to divorce my wife and get gay married? If so, I call dibbs on Jon Hamm.

What exactly IS being forced on America?

I mean, right now, conservative christian bigotry is being forced on us all. And, since we're not a theocracy, we really do need to remove that.

Vodka Zombie: What exactly IS being forced on America?


That sickening UnAmerican notion of "equal rights for all"

It's a shame really, to see freedom be imposed upon America.

I'ma polygamarry Paul Rudd and Ryan Gosling.

I want Mrs. Kucinich. Can I have her?

Same sex is at least some sex...

Same gender? Not for me.

I hope the guy I'm gay married to is a good cook,

Like he'd ever get a justice appointment approved.

Not happening. Not ever.
 
2012-05-11 08:55:34 AM  
So which Supreme Court justice is he going to have assassinated to replace them with the libbiest lib judge that ever libbed?

They're all good cooks. In fact, once you're gay married, you'll become a good cook too. But be prepared to have to update your wardrobe.

I'm a good cook, but I've already promised myself to the dog. Sorry.

This sentiment can't be proclaimed loudly enough! These people forcing their religious beliefs into the laws of the land effect me a billion times more than two dudes being allowed to marry.

Is he going to jam it down our throat or ram it up our ass?

If I get forced to gay marry Ryan Gosling I am totally cool with this.
 
2012-05-11 09:07:37 AM  
Until the Supreme Court says that I can see two naked men butt farking on prime-time television, I really dont care

You don't understand, if gay marriage is legalized that means all marriage is legal. Including polygamy. You can marry your dog and your couch cushions (you dirty adulterer, you).

I, personally am going to use my forced gay marriage to find a nice rich sugar daddy to support me and my current wife. That way I can stay home and play Diablo 3.
 
2012-05-11 09:12:29 AM  
And now, back to trying to force a Christian theocracy on America.

He may get two more justices, since I imagine that when Scalia goes, there's a stipulation in his will that Clarence Thomas must be sealed alive in his tomb.

Pat Buchanan comparing this to Antietam? I'm confused, he thinks being compared to the Confederacy is a good thing?

Seems reasonable. With Scalia gone, how will Clarence know how to vote / dress himself?
 
2012-05-11 09:22:16 AM  
If Romney gets elected we'll have to all get two more spouses.

I already assumed they were gay-married, since Scalia's hand always seems to be up Thomas's kiester.

If he were comparing this to the Confederacy, he would have used the word "Sharpsburg," not Antietam.

Well, if I must. I hope I can still wear jeans at least.

Only his left hand. His right is up Alito's.

Does it have to be an American forced upon me, or can I pick a furriner?

'Cause I kind of have a girl crush on Emma Watson.

Of course you can, they're just going to be much tighter now.

Sweet. I'm all excited to marry my three women and a goat.

Call me crazy, but my hunch is that a young Pat Buchanan wrote pretty much the same column sometime before the Loving v. Virginia decision came down.

Subby, I hope you are some kind of meta troll. If so, 4/10. If not, I hear the Westboro "Baptist Church" is looking for new members.

Why is America seen as this bastion of liberty for all the world to gaze upon with hope and aspiration when so many in your country are actively involved in trying suppress an out-group's pursuit of marriage equality? That's right, it's not. Your country looks like a sad joke to the majority of Canadians when it comes to this. How can Canada and the US be so alike in so many ways when you are so backward when it comes to this issue?

Explain to me how that would threaten the institution of marriage any more than drive in wedding chapels and celebrity serial marriages?

What is it to you if two women or two men get married to each other? How are you harmed? I guess you are afraid to find out, so you and the other bigots like you enjoy making your preemptive strikes against an oppressed group that is hated for no more than whom they love.

Trailer trash needs someone to feel superior to to reassure them they they are not on the lowest rung of society. They don't have blacks any more and it wasn't working out with the Mexicans, so Gays it is.

If I have to leave my wife and marry a man, I'm not going to be happy but I would cross my fingers and hope to at least get a tranny with a micro-penis.

You can, but they'll be more ball-crunchingly tight than you might prefer. You'll get used to them, though.

I'm going to go a little less obvious and call Jonathan Rhys Meyers. The accent is definitely a plus.

Was Canada's process on this as nasty as ours is? I mean did you guys have a bunch of religious f*ckwits with enough power to make things this stupidly difficult?

Oddly enough, it WILL force folks to realize that not all churches consider Leviticus to be paramount, and that is shocking to some folks, but there's freedom of religion for you...

Not even close. There were a few protests, but Prime Minister Chretien basically said "We want to do this thing the gay marriages, so to do that we need to go to the Canada Supremes to get the opinions for the decision so that will be made the government OK with making the law to make the gays and lesbians getting their marriages in Canada".

Some churches got uppity, but the Supreme Court explicitly stated that they may refuse to perform gay marriages on religious grounds. I myself have performed a gay marriage and it was wonderful. The hall was packed and it felt like any other wedding....except I was more proud somehow to be involved in that one.

I think I love you, and your country.

There's a lot to like about this country too, but the idea that we are the most free is a bit outdated. In some ways, maybe so, but in others, not so much.

I'm with others in this thread, sick to death of self-titled "religious" bigots voting on rights.

I have a headache.

But yeah - to my mind it's simple - and I've been saying this since the 80s: The Church has no business telling the State who gets what rights under the law. And the State most certainly has no business telling the Church who to bless.

Why is that so difficult for people?
