"Educated" doesn't necessarily mean "isn't a dumbass" or "doesn't have dumbass, bigoted, idiotic ideas."
Because people who argue in favor of "traditional marriage" are indeed bigoted dumbasses.

Traditional marriage.... So, arranged marriages? Slave marriage? Polygamy? Those are all traditional marriages. Where does it say we are bound by tradition and can't honor people's right to freedom? Can't create a better society for future generations?

Yes. Yes, it is.

In fact, it's possible to recognize that Orman is a smart, successful woman who is correct about a great many things, and still despise her.

The only part a good education plays in an emotional investment is that it allows you to better articulate your ideas...no matter how wrong they are.  And you have to consider the subject matter.  If were debating certain aspects of space flight you would certainly weigh the opinions of a PhD in Aerospace Engineering heavily.  The topic here is quite subjective.  I'm sure there were plenty of very highly educated individuals presenting perfectly drafted arguments on the side of bigots and hatemongers during the civil rights era.

Your blog, subby, with sweat and a dead man's balls. And if it's not your blog, why in the world would you either seek it out or share with the rest of the class?

If you believe that "traditional" marriage is "one man and one woman in a monogamous relationship", then yes, you are uneducated. Use a better term, or else fight for a REAL "traditional" union - one based on property/inheritance, political or social power, not constrained by petty monogamy, and only with approval from religious figures (actually, that's the only one they want to keep. FREEDOM!).

Hopefully, maybe one day in my lifetime, we can stop this unjust act of judging people by their beliefs or the content of their character, but rather by something much easier to see, allowing one to make a snap judgment without the burden of getting to know a person. Now, if you'll join with me and the Aryan Brotherhood Choir as we sign "We Shall Overcome..."

One of the things that has become increasingly clear in the debate about gay marriage in this country is that proponents do not really want to have a debate. They have already decided that traditional marriage supporters are ignorant rubes at best or bigots at worst. In either case, there is no reason to take traditional marriage supporters seriously, and they can be safely dismissed as a part of a dying minority.

Pretty much.  Social conservatives have lost every single cause they've fought in the West.  You guys are like the Washington Generals of political movements.  You did win the Iranian Revolution though so I guess there's still hope for your team.  Is that what you're holding out for?

You lost the argument before you started. And just as an FYI subby, if your argument is AGAINST basic human rights you cannot win. Just keep your bigoted mouth shut and no one will know how bigoted you are. Thank you.

When your position's only possible foundation is ignorance or bigotry there isn't anything *to* debate.

One of you anti-gay-marriage folks tell me a reason to deny two consenting adults to marry that doesn't boil down to "gay people are icky" and I'll happily debate it.

Doing your work for you, the only issue I can think of is the question of the effect of homosexual couples raising adopted children, but afaik the studies are pretty clear - it doesn't matter if the couple is hetero or homo, and if anything the kids are better off than from single-parent families.  I don't see the anti-gay-marriage folks rushing to outlaw hetero-marriage divorce so it sure looks like another agenda is at play.

Oh, and the religion thing?  Not everyone agrees with your religion.  If you're against it then don't get gay married.

Is this really the kind of thing that needs to be explained to people? Holy shiat, just when my opinion of most people couldn't get lower...

A possibility, however remote, exists that opponents of same-sex marriage will at some time be able to demonstrate actual harm resulting from legal recognition of same-sex marriage. While such demonstration has not yet occurred, to dismiss the possibility entirely rather than to merely recognize it as extremely unlikely is not rational.

Then we should legislate based on current evidence and adjust our laws if such evidence ever presents itself. Not to do so is extremely irrational.

They have already decided that traditional marriage supporters are ignorant rubes at best or bigots at worst.

Quite frankly, that's because they are.

Here are the arguments put forward by opponents of equal rights for same-sex relationships, following by a rebuttal:
1) Marriage is about procreation - then why do we not fertility test couples or ask if they want to have children before they get married, or follow-up after some period of time to make sure they have children? Why do we not force women who are single and found to be pregnant to get married? And what makes you think that in a day and age with in vitro fertilization, among other methods of having children, that same-sex couples cannot procreate? Why do we allow currently married straight couples to have any sort of sex for non-procreative purposes?

2) It will cause harm to traditional marriage - how? Be specific. What possible harm could this do to "traditional" marriage that has not already been done by eliminating dowry, the requirement that all marriages be arranged by the parents, that people of different faiths can marry, that people of different races can marry, that convicted prisoners currently serving time can marry, and so on?

3) It will cause harm to children - again, how? The most that can be granted here is that because the LGBT community is still an acceptable target of discrimination for a large chunk of this country, the only harm caused to children of same-sex couples will come not from letting them get married but from denying them equal treatment under the law and continuing to support their status as less-than-human.

We have heard these same arguments time and again, or slight variations thereof, in discussions about interracial marriage, or gays in the military, or whatever. And at no point in the history of the United States has harm ever befallen us when we have extended the sphere of humanity we wish to treat equally. So to put forward these types of arguments against the LGBT community IS ABSOLUTELY IGNORANT AND BIGOTED! I may have to respect the fact that you have the same freedoms of speech and expression that I do in this country, but I'll be goddamned if I'm going to engage you as an equal when you use your rights to try and strip them away from others. The opponents of same-sex marriage simply do not deserve to be treated with respect, and that all we're doing is not wanting to have a debate with you is the best possible situation. At least we're not trying to take away your rights, as you are trying to do to other US citizens.

Both Piers and Orman were rude to Anderson, but the most patronizing thing happened at the very beginning of Orman's remarks. After Anderson shared his views, Orman gave him a rhetorical pat on the head. She told him that he was obviously "uneducated in how it really, really works."

Ryan Anderson graduated  Phi Beta Kappa and  magna cum laude from Princeton University and he's a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Notre Dame. He just co-authored a book that is probably the definitive case for traditional marriage. He's a fellow at the Heritage Foundation and an all-around brilliant guy. Whatever you want to think about Ryan Anderson, "uneducated" hits ridiculously wide of the mark.


He has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Princeton. I don't know if that makes you an expert on everything.

Oh, wait...he also co-authored a book about gay marriage and is at the Heritage Foundation.

The Heritage Foundation wouldn't let someone in who was "uneducated" on the subject of his book, would they?

Watching the video, several times he kept saying "40 years ago we redefined marriage." They kept cutting him off. What was he trying to say??? Man I soooo wish they had let him continue, was he saying that biracial couples are a bad thing? He would have been laughed at and made fun of.

On the radio the 83-year-old petitioner challenging DOMA explained that part of the reason she did so is because the US government did not recognize her Canadian marriage, forcing her to pay some $350k in estate taxes when her wife died.

A $350k loss to the IRS? Harm.

In the Bible, Paul instructs the church to avoid marriage, because there is no marriage in heaven. So a requirement of living in heaven is divorce.

If the church is so all about doing what the bible says, re: marriage, why isn't the church all dead by now?
