quote: It says, "you are different
quote: Here is a tip to deal... Live your life exactly as you do today and do nothing different, other than not worry about what 2 consenting adults do in their own lifes. Sounds simple no?
quote: I personally am looking forward to the Canadian government making it illegal for churches to not marry gays where heteros can. ie., a Mormon temple.
quote: Well, then how about removing the ability of intolerant churches to marry anyone? ie., if you discriminate against lawful marriages, then you can only symbolically and not legally marry couples. Seems fair to me.
quote: Sure, it is fair, but it isn't a compromise.
quote: Then why is the church (some Church's) fighting Gay marriage? I totally agree , it should be separate. TELL THE CHURCH FOLKS THAT!
quote: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
quote: Why change the legal definition of a word which has deep (and for many people, holy) meaning outside of government, when a perfectly acceptable legal term (civil union) already exists which does the same thing for legal and government purposes?
quote: I don't understand why some churches (and right leaning people) care what somebody else wants to call their civil union. If they want to call it marriage, let them.
quote: Why create the possibility of that kind of problem when a perfectly good alternative word - civil union - already exists and is already used by government to effectively mean the same thing as marriage?
quote: I agree if it were de-coupled from the religious ceremony it would help for many, but still, that really isn't the point. Laws against gay marriage are limiting their rights for equal treatment plain and simple.
quote: It's coming, whether you like it or not.
quote: People who pick and chose what to believe
quote: Some people don't like gays because of biology. Homosexuality threatens a species' survival. You need to reproduce to survive.
quote: Ahem. People who pick and choose what to believe are called free thinkers. They are superior in every way to drones and automatons.
quote: How is that bigoted because they believe they are going to hell? What if they are just practicing their religious doctrine?
quote: Are you arguing that we are all the same, that there is no difference in anyone, be it their skin color, sex or sexuality?
quote: If your religion requires you to discriminate against gays, well... that would make you a bigot. Pretty simple stuff really. How can you not understand this?
quote: Per Mr Sullivan: "If this is the gay rights movement today - hounding our opponents with fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else - then count me out. If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than that anti-gay bullies who came before us."
quote: Anyways, my point stands: He was a heterosexual. Jesus was gay. If you're going to love Jesus, you need to love gay, too.
quote: Don't ask, don't tell was right on!
quote: Not if you look at things scientifically. If you did, you'd see there are genetic anomalies and abnormalities. Some of which allow for a species survival giving them an advantage (aka natural selection) while other mutations are counterproductive to this.
quote: They shouldn't be ashamed of who they are but they likewise shouldn't consider themselves the same as everyone else. They aren't. Their genetic code tells us so.
quote: I would fire one of my employees if they publicly made known that they were bigoted. That hurts my image and I want no part of it.
quote: We force out presidential candidates from running all the time
quote: This guy supports an anti rights bill and you get upset about his speech not being protected from public outcry.
quote: What would Jesus do?
quote: Try and look at the other side. This guy went out of his way to contribute money to stop other consenting adults from living their lives the way they want to live it.
quote: If it impacts the company negatively through public outcry, then it's in the company's best to let that person go, or demote them.
quote: So if an actor stated they hated the United States and it's citizens, it'd be irrational to boycott their movies because what they said doesn't affect their acting ability or how good the movie will be?
quote: The reality is if you piss someone off, they'll respond. So you try not pissing millions of people off because it's detrimental to you and your career. You know like spending money to ensure you disrupt the rights of others.
quote: his guy went out of his way to contribute money to stop other consenting adults from living their lives the way they want to live it.
quote: Serious questions to those against gay marriage.
quote: Right now, we have a group of people who aren't being allowed the same rights and privileges as all other humans. That in itself is the issue.
quote: I many states, most if a gay couple wants to get married, they are denied.
quote: Also, your analogy doesn't work. You are still free to go buy whatever car you want.
quote: The govt. inst denying you anything.
quote: When you go to do something and are denied the same rights as others let us know.
quote: Freedom for all baby!
quote: Were it mine to throw, I would throw it.
quote: But as it stands many, if not all, marriage laws are religious based and as such exclude homosexual marriages...Changing the laws is one thing, pretending they say something completely different is another.
quote: How is being against gay marriage anything but ignorant and intolerant?
quote: You guys are on the losing side of history on this one.
