the point is.  if you make a million dollars a year, you could afford to buy a brick house where nobody could see you commit sodomy.

so in essence gay marriage is a menace

on second thought gay marriage is a good idea.  cause it encourages grinding

I see a couple of places where "Mind your own f*cking business" should be replaced with "Buy gifts"

I am on the side of marriage equality. I understand his frustration. Unlike him, however, I understand why they are so against it.

I am politically right wing. I have lived with these people. I have had close relations with these kinds of people. I therefore offer their mindset.

Please do not take this as what I feel because it is not

Those who are against gay marriage feel that they are commanded by their God to uphold moral decency. This is something that is very near and dear to them. This is one of their biggest core beliefs. The current religious consensus amongst the christian community is that homosexuality is a sin. They feel that if they dont uphold what they have been commanded by God then they will enter hell. To them, this is about keeping their conscience clean.

It is difficult to convince these people to support marriage equality. Many of them have very strong faith. Those are always the hardest to reach because they are stuck in their delusional world and they love living in that reality.

IMHO, "Mind your own f*cking business" cannot be repeated enough.

25 years from now people are going to look at this issue like we look at pictures like this today:

And that includes people against gay marriage right now. I'll admit that my own views have evolved over the past 25 years.

step 1 - it is none of your business
step 2 - it will have no effect on you in any way, shape or form
step 3 - it is none of your business

This was addressed in his editorial.  If you use the words in the Bible to justify why you're against gay marriage, why don't you follow the rest of the words so strictly?

/not you personally, cman, but "you" the generic person who makes these claims.

Oh yeah? Well, mind your own f*cking business. :p

Kidding, of course. I agree completely. :)

What I love is that the latest thing that religious right types are pulling is the, "you people who are posting equality pictures on facebook are letting satan distract you from the Gospel," concern troll. I'm like, no, what is distracting from the Gospel is all of the people who are hiding behind the Cross while spewing hatred against their fellow citizens.

gay marriage is one of many things i feel government only has a say in because they are arrogant bullies. politics and religious beliefs are two very separate subjects and they should remain so. to speak out and/or take actions against things that are found in nature is a huge mistake. it's as insulting to treat responsible hard working tax paying adults like petulant unruly children in need of guidance and discipline. also incredibly stupid is arresting and humiliating consenting adults who engage in sex for cash or willing adults who smoke maryjane. the people allow the government far too much power and say. big changes are way over due.

if you're a religious person: Hate the sin, Love the sinner.

They live together. They decorate their home. They watch television or listen to the radio or knit or play video games. They cook food. They eat.
Who does this affect? Retail outlets in the community who benefit from increased domestic goods sales (because, let's face it, couples consume more than individuals in just about every regard).
I'm not sure about this one. I think marriage might have a net negative impact on consumer spending. When you live alone, you buy two washers and driers, two microwaves, two beds, two of everything you only need one of as a married couple.

Should have italicized that, and I'm not sure what happened to the space I put after the quote. Sorry if that's hard to read.

How about just giving zero fark if they want to get married or not. Why should straight people be the only ones miserable ?

Most of those things, you'd buy one of if you were unmarried and living together.  The only retail spike to be had here is the slight bump from people buying wedding gifts; probably negligible.

You have to understand how the other side thinks.

There's probably a better term for this, but essentially the religious right believes in an "input morality." As long as they impose Biblical values on everyone, they feel it automatically justifies anything they do (the "output" side) including war, lying, putting people in poverty, etc.

If gay marriage becomes legal, it diminishes the other side of the equation; if America's input morality goes down the tubes, they'll have to confront the fact that we're waging war, torturing people without due process, etc. etc.

Especially since, for a while at least, most gay weddings are going to be the "what do you get the couple who has two of everything?" type as opposed to the "young newlyweds just starting real life after graduation" type.

Marriage is a contract, it creates a new legal entity. We, as a society, accept that married couples have rights and responsibilities that are assumed like custody, inheritance,  and privacy just to name a few.

The government is the system we use to enforce contracts, so marriage is very much the business of the government.

They also, for some stupid reason, think that their churches are going to be forced to gay marry people. (and turtles)

/I can assure any of you who think this, it isn't going to happen.
//LGBT folks will have a secular ceremony or get married in a church that approves of their marriage
///It won't affect anyone who doesn't approve whatsoever
