Let's be serious for a second /b/, because I know you can all be insensitive faggots.
Do you honestly support gay marriage? Why or why not?
Sure, marriage helps cut down on promiscuity which helps cut rates of disease. Also, gay couples that want kids have to adopt, and that gives lots of otherwise alone kids the chance to have parents.
All that said, I'd still whup my kid's ass if he ever chose to be gay.
I support it even though it makes me a little uncomfortable i mean why should i care anyway and stop them. The weird thing is im bi-curious and want to suck some dick and fuck some dude but falling in love with a guy is weird to me
Horseshit, marriage is contractual by nature. Are you saying an atheist can't get married?
Also even if it was how the fuck does allowing gay marriage violate anyone's 1st amendment rights?
Because marriage is religiously affiliated, those institutions must also support it to hold the sanctuaries.If not, gays can just do a civil union. I would have supported them if they would have gone with civil unions for the same benefits as marriage.
Marriage is a secular institution, based on the fact that marriages are recorded with the state as civil unions, and married couples are granted extra rights. If the meaning of marriage only extended to the church you'd have a point, but it doesn't.
No. Marriage is stupid as fuck. I don't support any type of marriage.
If the question had been
>Do you honestly support people's right to have a gay marriage?
Then my answer would be yes.
That said, marriage is a religious ritual. Many churches wouldn't hold gay weddings even if they were legal. And I don't get why faggots even want to get married given that the religions that weddings are based in do not support faggotry.
I supported it until my sister came out as gay. Now she takes testosterone, which is ruining her body. She is getting into drugs and failing school. She is super weird now. Her thought pattern is super transparent "hmmm, what do boys like? Oh, steak, cars, football? Okay I like that now too."
honestly it doesn't even seem like she is really gay, it seems more like she is trying to prove something that even she can't put her finger on. It seems more like a rebellion of culture than an actual movement.
plus I honestly believe sexuality is a choice, and yes, that means all you straight motherfuckers are choosing to be straight on some level too.
kek, just because I see the social utility and I choose not to be an asshole to people doesn't mean I approve of it as an acceptable lifestyle choice for my family. If he insisted I'd probably stop whupping his ass eventually and support him
wrong, marriage was not created by religion, was used as a social tool
anyway, marriages are run by the state now, you can get married in a fucking government building
argument = invalid
Me, so take off your fucking fedora and get off your high horse.
Its so fucking funny how Atheists talk all this shit about being superior yet they waste their time and others' by bashing religion all the DAMN TIME. Seriously, grow up.
Government forcing churches to hold gay weddings violates the constitution, but so does government forcing churches not to hold gay weddings. So actually, banning gay marriage is what violates the constitution. Churches can do it if they want, not do it if they want.
Honestly, whatever fuckin' floats your boat. I personally will never understand what would create someone to desire somebody of the same sex. I just find it odd. BUT not disgusting, or un-appealing. I wouldn't say I really "Support" gay marriage, I would say that I am okay with it though. I couldn't give 2 shits honestly. And I have religious beliefs and everyone tells me being gay/gay marriage is "wrong" but meh... If following your heart is wrong then I ain't fuckin' sure I wanna be right.
Kek, haha so fahnny. It funniest because you Athiest Ann you make fun of religion DAT different frum yurs. Hahahahahahhahahahhahhahhahhahahahahahahahahahshahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahshahahshhshahshshsbshshahabahahahahahahahahahshsbsbsbsbaahhhhhhahhhahahahhhahahhaahhhhahhhahhahhahhahhahahahhhahahahahaahhhhahahahahhhhhahhhahagaghghagaggggggaggggagggahahahhhaah
> implying Im atheist
seems like youre the one who's quick to rush to judgement, based on your afterlife belief system.
Getting back on track from your tangent, answer my question, if you can. Who is publicly opposing gay marriage right now, for ANY other reason than it opposes the bible? Protip: you cant.
I support it because i don't think the government should be involved in marriage anyway. Any consenting adult should be able to marry any other consenting adult. Until we get to that point, this is a step
"and its establishment clause prevents the federal government from creating an official national church or favoring one set of religious beliefs over another"
Marriage has always been religious institution. Just because the government includes itself in it for tax, census, and whatever reason. Does not make it not an religious institution.
Can't call them two separate things man. If gays get their own institution that has the exact same rights as marriage then they could make they argument of separate but equal state institutions are potentially unconstitutional.
No, but I support civil unions. The State and society in general have a vested interest in maintaining the sanctity of heterosexual marriage and the family unit in order to perpetuate the species. The State could never afford to cover the costs of raising directly 100% of the children required to sustain the population.
I support civil unions being a basis for hospital and prison visitation rights, health insurance coverage, inheritance, etc., just as marriages are.
I'm an oldfag, and I remember that as recently as the 1980s nobody in the gay community wanted or agitated for marriage "equality." The equality movement is cultural aggression. For the aggressors it's not enough to have the same rights (the aforementioned visitation rights, etc.), the filthy breeders must be forced to admit--even if they don't believe it--that there is no difference between heterosexual, monogamous pair bonding and homosexual relationships. In my opinion that's totalitarian bullshit and it should be opposed.
If the suffragettes and feminists had gone about things the same way the gay community is, then they would have insisted not that women are equal to men but that women are identical to men. The fact that they did not do that shows that the suffragettes and first-wave feminists were not fucking insane, at least.
Not a necrosadist, but I am a pedo. I guess I can get not being a pedo, though, if you're really into breasts and the like. I like flat chests. Luckily, twinky guys really service those urges.
It's already unconstitutional that our secular government applies legal contracts to a religious ceremony and anything that is an affront to that is good.
Ok then, let's say religious "marriage" is separate from "civil union". There's still the issue of same-sex civil unions, which should be entirely secular, being illegal in some states due to religious people claiming that they are the same thing. How do we reconcile this situation?
Wow, you are incredibly close minded.
Whatever man, enjoy your dogmatic and constrained existence of servitude to an organized power structure that sucks both your life and money,
I'll just enjoy life and love and contemplate the idea of God and spirituality as a possibility, but not anything I could ever truly know.
But animals would need to be able to own property and sign contracts to enter legal marriage agreements, I doubt that'll happen. If one suddenly started talking I'd certainly support it.
Being attracted to the same sex is a mental illness, so no, gay marriage should be withheld until the seek treatment in a psychiatric inpatient unit. There are alot of medications out there to correct the chemical imbalance in the brain that occurs when you are attracted to the same sex.
Gay of any kind should not be tolerated.
There is no reason to oppose it. This is fact, not opinion.
It DOES NOT affect those who oppose it, so why oppose it. Who gives a fuck
On the flip side, it doesn't really affect those that want it either. Most non-nigger countries allow legally defined relationships with the same rights as marriage between fags, so why do they want to get married and join an institution that hates them.
It's fucking retarded. Both those that support it and those that oppose it need a bullet. Shoot both the fuckers
