stuffy: And what the hell this pecker head got against Jedi ?


Well perhaps it is a bit unfair to tar all Jedi with the same brush, but its very hard to forget that the terrorist who flew his aircraft into the Imperial Peace Enhancement Center on 9/11/5673 was a radical militant Jedi, who, despite growing up as a peaceful and productive member of the Empire was radicalized by a Jedi Sleeper agent who had quietly infiltrated that peaceful rural community almost two decades earlier

Well if you Christians would quit bashing on gays and forcing them away they would probably go for the old fashioned church wedding with a real preacher like everyone else. The point of wanting a marriage is a desire to be more normal. You can't kick them out of your club then biatch when they start their own with weird rules you don't like

tlars699: havocmike: For the last farking time : "Jedi" is not a religion.

A "Jedi" is a high level practitioner of an unnamed religion, likely "Forcism".

It's like someone asking "what's your religion" and responding "Rabbi".

But when asked by the Census, they say "I am a Jedi Knight."
Also, we believe in The Force, not "Forcism". Don't force your farce of an "ism" on us.


Give it up; You are a Transcendentalist.

CleanAndPure: Bungles: Now I Is!: I thought Druidry was already legally a religion in the UK. If so why wouldn't they already be allowed to officiate weddings?
...and who cares?

They can even get the Archbishop of Canterbury to come along from time to time.

Looks more like a klan rally... which isn't surprising if he is a Christian.


The Archbishop of Canterbury is a practicing Druid.  Druidic robes may bear some superficial resemblance to Klan robes, but the two belief systems are completely different.

anfrind: The Archbishop of Canterbury is a practicing Druid.


Wait. . .what?

Isn't druidism a completely different, and incompatible belief system from Christianity?  How could somebody be an ordained Anglican clergy of any rank, much less the Archbishop of Canterbury, and be a practicing member of a religion which contradicts his other religion?

It would be like saying that one of the Cardinals in the Vatican was also a Buddhist, or that the preacher down the corner at Local Baptist Church was also Hindu.  Just doesn't seem to make any dang sense.

DontMakeMeShushYou: No Such Agency: Religious radicals' fear of "humanism" is really telling.  What they actually hate is humans.  Sagan forbid we help each other struggle through our own sins and virtues, without prostrating ourselves like worms before a supposedly superior power who is conveniently silent and does nothing to help or guide us.

Agreed, my favorite part if the article is where they mention that humanist weddings outnumbered catholic weddings in Scotland. Makes me proud to be 1/4 Scottish.

Resident Muslim: Speaking of which, and I'm thinking (asking?) out loud here...are there any arguments FOR gay marriage that don't also argue for polygamy?


It kinda depends on whether, by "polygamy", you mean "polygyny" (one man, more than one wife) or "group marriage" (any combination of men and women married together, so long as there are at least three in total).

Until we get a name for the religion, we'll continue to call it "Jedi."  You can think of it as shorthand for "the Jedi religion" if that untwists your knickers a bit.  If you're still hot and bothered about it, then write a letter to Lucas asking what the official name of the religion is.

Theaetetus: wildsnowllama: I don't see the problem, what they believe in is just as real as what other religions teach.

Possibly more real, seeing as how the author is still alive and can be directly asked about the meaning of certain passages.


Nice.

And??
Don't leave me hanging! How about you explain on both cases?
Also, why limit to three?

FTFA: Amendment would allow 'ridiculous' sects to marry couples.

Don't they already? Isn't there this weird middle eastern death cult which worships an undead Jew on a stick who is his own father who sacrificed himself to himself to nullify a sin that was created when a woman made out of a rib was convinced by a talking snake to eat a magical fruit and then feed it to her husband who was made out of dirt? And hasn't that ridiculous sect been performing marriages for almost 2000 years?

Midichlorianism?

Don't ask Lucas for a name, he sucks ass at creating names. It'll turn out the name of the religion the Jedis practice is called "Doodookakapeepeeism" or some shiat like that.

Indeed, do not... You'll probably also inspire the crazy motherfarker to redo all the movies again so he can digitally insert references to the new ridiculous name everywhere!

I didn't "limit" anything to three.  I said "at least three" because, if you have less than three people in the marriage, it isn't polygamous, is it?

Ok. Now I feel stupid (doesn't take much).

But you still didn't explain the difference.

A system where it's ok or normal for one man to have more than one wife, but not vice-versa is inherently sexist, patriarchal, and anti-feminist.   A system where any combination of adults can make a valid marriage, including one woman with multiple husbands and one man with multiple wives, is not inherently sexist, patriarchal, or anti-feminist.  That's the key philosophical difference.

Also, in practical terms, societies in which men can have more than one wife (but not vice-versa) also leads to a situation in which powerful/rich men have multiple wives and men lower in socioeconomic status have no wives, which places additional strains on the society.  A society in which a significant percentage of men who want to get married cannot find a wife is in trouble.

This can also occur if the ratio of men to women gets badly skewed, as in China.
