Sigh. Not sure if amusing or horribly sad. Is there a single anti-gay marriage argument that isn't just "when you meet your maker, you'll pay?"

I like the part where they went from zero to marrying dogs and fish in three comments. Usually you have to wait until at the very least about 50-60 comments for that one around here. Need to step your game up, FARK.

Anyone against same sex marriage is just a sick closeted homosexual that deserves our pity.
 
2012-06-22 03:46:47 PM
1) Cite bible as reason there should be laws against same-sex marriage.

2) Realize that the same First Amendment you're citing as supporting the "religious freedom" argument you use to discriminate against gay people also means that the government can't make laws based solely on religion.

3) Force retarded level of cognitive disconnect, keep arguing it anyway.

4) You're a f*cking hate-filled moron.

As to #1 .. quite a few actually. I can cite various new testament verses that clarify homosexuality as wrong from a biblical perspective. However with this said a properly studious Christian knows that you can only live in sin if you're a Christian. People who are not should not be chastised or looked down upon. They can't sin because they have not accepted Christ Jesus as their savior. Unfortunately only a handful of Christians like me exist. Many Christians think that people who are not saved can sin when in fact they cannot. Many Christians feel that they themselves are saved when in fact they are probably not.

#2 is where most Christians fail in argument. The bible clearly tells us that we must follow our government and respect that institution. If the government has dictated a separation of church and state then it's clear to me that a state/federal marriage has nothing to do with me. A church marriage however does and it's a catch 22. You're living in sin as a homosexual therefor you can't be married. You can't -not- live in sin because being homosexual is considered an abomination in God's eyes. You can't get married in a Christian church unless you're Christian and work hard to give up a life of sin. In other words yes.. we all sin but by working through Christ we work to create as sin-free of a life as we can. Living in a homosexual lifestyle does not allow for this. Unfortunately I doubt we're going to get any code revisions in the bible to adjust for current social aspects.

Bunch of religious nuts here.

Folks, homosexuality appears unnatural because Natural Selection has determined that they are DEAD ENDS. It's Darwin 101; it's evolution. It has nothing to do with a god, or personal choices, but with genetics. Nature says they are DONE, finished, like a prehensile tail.

Now that we can do away with false senses of morality, either for or against, can we as a species dispose of these dead ends and move on? They use up valuable resources, contribute nothing, and should be eliminated for the good of the whole of our society. Or are you going to start whining and calling the survival of the fittest "murder," which is another religious term that holds that all life is somehow equal?

I guess we'll have to start doing fertility tests before issuing marriage licenses. If you can't reproduce, then you're a dead end, and therefore ineligible for marriage. That's what the Bible says. I'm sure it's in there somewhere.


meat0918: Scarier are the ones that want to enshrine being a bully in law as long as you're religious about it.

That's certainly one way to look at it. The major disconnect here is that non-Christians are happy to let us go about our business of being Christians. I'm happy to let non-Christians go along doing their thing. Somewhere along the way someone decided that we had to shove our ideals down other peoples throats. I can give a rats ass about homosexual marriage outside of Christianity and the people I hang out with are of the same mind.

As far as God being a dick.. It's pretty simple. Treat people well, treat family even better, and treat God as king. The bible I'm reading doesn't say anything about being an asshole to those who don't follow our thought process. Which brings me back to the original thing I said.. Non-Christians are none of our business.

According to my church's understanding of the Bible, homosexuality is not a sin. Likewise, my church does not believe the Bible is the literal Word of God but the best men (and I mean only men) could come up with as the Bible.

If it were the literal Word of God, no one would eat shellfish, having sex with one's daughters is AOK, slavery is cool, having multiple wives as property is better than sliced bread, she bears would rush out of the woods on command to kill scores of children. etc.

I'll just stick with the best parts of Christianity, i.e. love thy neighbor and God. Simple, easy, uncomplicated. I'll chat with Jesus and recommend an early Second Coming to knock off a Bible rewrite when I see Him on the other side. Too many "Christians" are living for the Rapture to happen instead of living as Jesus wanted us to. Revelations is the most misunderstood book and left too many salivating for the End of the World disaster movie.

/Oh, congratulations to the happy couple.

You're talking about the old testament which isn't relevant in modern day Christianity. Which by the way always pisses me off when someone mentions Leviticus as a reason to oppose gay marriage.

In Corinthians: "Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality." That to me is very clear.. it requires no interpretations. If you cheat on your spouse or if you're gay you're not welcome.. The first two parts are open to interpretation.

He was also against adultery.. Did you miss that part? It's pretty simple.. A man and woman is the partnership. The man treats the woman as he would himself (actually better than he does himself) and he treats his kids in the same fashion. If he or she cheats the marriage is over in God's eyes. Homosexuals cannot have this relationship therefor they are incapable of being married in God's eyes.

I would be happy to say if you're not a Christian what do you care about my beliefs but non-Christians are overloaded by bible-thumping idiots that have no idea what the bible or Christ's message is trying to convey. In fact Christ himself would welcome homosexuals as friends and would even baptize them but they still couldn't be married.

What's so disturbing is young kids (the 14 year old youtuber for example) that are being fed non-Christian ideals in His name.

But all of this is irrelevant because of church/state separation. There is absolutely no reason why a homosexual couple shouldn't be able to legally live as anyone else in this country. It's not a Theocracy (which I would abhor).

Some people find it disturbing that kids are being fed so-called Christian ideals. It seems to foment hate in a lot of people. I don't personally care, as long as you keep it in the church. You shouldn't be pushing your beliefs onto others with laws, though.

But all of this is irrelevant because of church/state separation. There is absolutely no reason why a homosexual couple shouldn't be able to legally live as anyone else in this country.

Yeah, but "everyone else" can get married, therefore, gays are being denied civil rights and responsibilities that non-gays are granted. Not cool.

Some people with Muslim beliefs like to blow shiat up.. Not all of them. Some people with Christian beliefs like to impose Christian law on pagans .. not all of them. Both are misguided and flat out wrong.

And yes.. from a state and federal level any human of sound mind should be able to marry any other human of sound mind. In fact it's more serious than just being able to be with someone you want on paper. A married couple gets tax breaks and benefits, certain considerations at death, social security and things of that nature. It seems frankly illegal to keep those rights away from a homosexual couple.

BTW the reason I mention Adultery is because they are equal sins. There is not a grading curve for sin.. Murder and adultery are equals and we're not talking about "the ten commandments" which are outmoded in the new testament.

Freep is not disappointing me on this at all:

I like Dick Cheney. His cross to beer is his Lesbian daughter. I am sure they are both fine people in their own right, but I must correct some of the distortions in the story.

Mary and her partner have never had children together. Mary had a child with the help of an unnamed masturbate who inseminated her by proxy months after he self gratified with little more in mind than the $50? he received for his 'efforts'. She and her two bastard children co habitat in a sinful relationship with their mothers fellow pervert.

Mary and her 'partner' are not now nor will they ever be 'married' as pretending that the deviant relationship is a marriage, doesn't make it so.

Did you just compare suicide bombing with gay marriage? That's pathetic, but I'll play. A suicide bomber involves and does harm to non-consenting individuals. Someone who blows up a structure of some kind is destroying the property of another or others without consent - thus harming other people (people can blow up their own shiat as far as I'm concerned, as long as they're not putting other people or other people's stuff in danger).

If two guys get married, how is anyone harmed? You may not like it, you may think it's immoral, but how is it actually hurting you? If God opposes it, let God deal with it. Heck, I hate rap music, but I'm not going to push for a ban on rap. It may annoy me, but it's not really harming me.

And yes.. from a state and federal level any human of sound mind should be able to marry any other human of sound mind.

meat0918: It's a common conservative trait to be against something unless you have direct experience with it affecting your life.


Cheney's never been particularly anti-gay. He's pretty right-wing on some other issues, but he's actually been fairly consistent there, at least while he's been in office. He's never been particularly overtly religious at all, actually, to the point I don't actually know if he's Christian offhand, I'm just assuming it form his profession and statistics.

//I feel like I'm kind of scrambling for things to comment on since, even when actively trying, I can't seem to make myself give a single fark one way or the other about two random people who aren't public figures getting married without any particular obstacles in their way and the full support of their family and friends.

Presumably using the most basic theory of Darwinism, the quote would be correct. Genetically two lesbians can't have kids. Only by introducing good ol manseed can the procreate. over time assuming their kids have the ghey those genes would die out. Of course in reality homosexuality must be a genetic abnormality like being left handed. A relatively small section of the population is this way and there will always be some. So deal with it.

Also, we could have saved ourselves some time and just copy pasta'd Tuckers thread onto here and we could just laugh at the responses.

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God."

Lionel Mandrake: xynix: Some people with Muslim beliefs like to blow shiat up.. Not all of them. Some people with Christian beliefs like to impose Christian law on pagans .. not all of them. Both are misguided and flat out wrong.

Did you just compare suicide bombing with gay marriage? That's pathetic, but I'll play. A suicide bomber involves and does harm to non-consenting individuals. Someone who blows up a structure of some kind is destroying the property of another or others without consent - thus harming other people (people can blow up their own shiat as far as I'm concerned, as long as they're not putting other people or other people's stuff in danger).

If two guys get married, how is anyone harmed? You may not like it, you may think it's immoral, but how is it actually hurting you? If God opposes it, let God deal with it. Heck, I hate rap music, but I'm not going to push for a ban on rap. It may annoy me, but it's not really harming me.

And yes.. from a state and federal level any human of sound mind should be able to marry any other human of sound mind. In fact it's more serious than just being able to be with someone you want on paper. A married couple gets tax breaks and benefits, certain considerations at death, social security and things of that nature. It seems frankly illegal to keep those rights away from a homosexual couple.

Oh...well, hell, it looks like we actually agree.

BTW the reason I mention Adultery is because they are equal sins. There is not a grading curve for sin.. Murder and adultery are equals and we're not talking about "the ten commandments" which are outmoded in the new testament.

You're free to believe that, and I'm free to believe that's F*cking ridiculous.


Actually, he compared Christians trying to make laws against homosexual marriage to suicide bombers. Don't let lack of reading comprehension stop your outrage though.

I'm interested to know what sect xynix is in here, though, which seems to have a much different idea of Christianity than any I know if...

Also, Fark, please make it possible to quote partial posts on mobile so I don't take huge amounts of space when having a political argument while on the can.

OK, my bad

BTW, I'll work on my reading comprehension so that someday I can be perfect like you and never make mistakes...and then I can be a smart-ass like you.

Sabyen91: Wow, there. Corinthians does NOT say homosexuality. Do you need to lie about your own holy book?


I don't think he's lying, really. I found at least one translation that lists homosexuals (New King James does, since he said "King James" above).

Not that I'm taking his side. I just don't see that as a willful lie.
