James!: Well, Kentucky is farm country and you all know what the queers are doing to the soil.
stpauler: Beshear's hired counsel say Kentucky has a legitimate interest in encouraging procreation to support "long-term economic stability through stable birth rates."Yeah, if I weren't allowed to gay marry my husband in Minnesota, I'd totally be gettin' Brandine pregnant instead as THAT'S HOW SEXUALITY WORKS. Dumbass.
Arkanaut: Despite all the pearl-clutching, every state in the union except for Rhode Island and Maine had population growth between 2010 and 2013 (Source). Kentucky is a little bit behind the pack but there's no reason to panic.
ZombiesezCafeeeeeennnn: I suppose that the state of Kentucky will now require proof of fertility from both parties before issuing marriage licenses now.If procreation is the whole argument, Polygamy should also be immediately legalized. A woman can only give birth every nine or so months, but men...they can shoot sperm practically all day every day, right?
Neondistraction: And how much of the state's money are they pissing away trying to defend this law? Pretty much every state that has passed similar bans on same-sex marriage have had those laws ruled unconstitutional and overturned. Do they really think that they're going to somehow be that one state that manages to make it stick?
jaylectricity: James!: Well, Kentucky is farm country and you all know what the queers are doing to the soil.You revolting cock.
DubtodaIll: You'd think the Hat-Design lobby would have a little more pull in Kentucky.
Karac: "The institution of the man-woman marriage is deeply rooted in the history and traditions of our country," the appeal says. "A right to same-sex marriage is not."So was slavery. We got over ending that, I think we can get over letting two dudes exchange vows."We ain't a never done it that way before" is just about the stupidest farking reason you can come up with to outlaw something.
ampoliros: The wife and I were married in KY but we live in another state and had a kid. I have a brother who married in KY, had a kid and adopted another from out of state. My other brother is still in KY and doesn't have any kids. Clearly the marriage of gays is the cause for all of this.
Close2TheEdge: When you have no actual arguments beyond "my religion doesn't approve of the gheys" then you grasp for straws. When you grasp for straws, you look like a dipshiat. When you look like a dipshiat, you end up on the wrong side of history.Don't end up on the wrong side of history.
jbrad47128: James!: Well, Kentucky is farm country and you all know what the queers are doing to the soil.What are they doing to the soil... curious??
Rigby-Reardon: Once married Kentucky couples will have 18 months to conceive. If no offspring is produced the couples will be fined $2000.00 and given a state issued baby.
If we allow people to become doctors, we'll all starve, because there'll be no farmers.
Therefore, ban doctors.
Duane Dibbley: James!: Well, Kentucky is farm country and you all know what the queers are doing to the soil.James!, I like you. You're not like the other people here in this trailer park.
Theaetetus: In the 32-page appeal, attorney Leigh Gross Latherow says Kentucky has an interest in maintaining birth rates, which if allowed to fall can induce economic crises because of the reduced demand for good and services, and the reduction of the work force.Latherow explained in the appeal how allowing gays to marry would reduce the birth rate among heterosexual couples, stating that many married couples in Kentucky, particularly conservative Republicans, are actually closeted homosexuals who have been trapped in resentful, unloving relationships. Latherow cited the popular term "beard", and noted that many homosexuals have children, for example, as a result of dutiful eyes-closed sex while fantasizing about their real preferred partner. Allowing gay marriage, the appeal concludes, would mean that these bitter and spiteful, yet fruitful faux-heterosexual relationships would not exist, with a resulting reduction in birth rates.
