What the hell is wrong with you?
You are unable to see that permitting two people from marrying is not the same as permitting three? That is a serious brain defect you have if you can not count that high. I know you are more intelligent than that but you are subscribing to the defective mindset of the bigots.
Rethink you're numbers there big guy. It is not difficult. One plus one equals two. That is a marriage that we find acceptable and that is the issue. Not three. Not four. Don't be all Monty Python-esque about it like the holy hand grenade sketch in the movie. You would be ridiculous to confuse one and one with three. But then you just did. Wow. Look in the mirror dude - Then, repeat after me "One Plus ONE equals Twooooooo. One Plus ONE equals Twooooooo. NOT Three, Nor shall thou count to four, but Twooooooo is the number thou shall count to and the number thou shall count to is TWOOOOOOOO."
Do You, Mrs. Jane Doe, take as your lawfully wedded husband, Mr. Billy goat Gruff, to Honor, etc. etc. etc.........God help this SICK SICK country.
I believe that marriage is between two legally aged adult humans, regardless of gender. As simple as that.
While we have no right to tell people they can't have 2 or 3 wives/husbands, I can see that having more than one spouse can begin to create complications in the legal system. What happens when one wants a divorce? When one dies? Has kids?
I don't want to offend ANYONE, But my personal belief is that Marriage is exclusively between a MAN AND A WOMAN, as stated by Our Creator in the Holy Bible.....
"same sex marriage" is the Mother Oxymoron of the ages, exceeding even "honest politician" in it's absolute and totally twisted illogic. Those who parade up and down with their signs and mill about screaming for "their right" to "marry" a member of the same sex are doomed just as surely as the residents of Sodom and Gomorrah were doomed unless they repent of their abominable sin against God and nature. I say this, not with malice or ill will towards anyone, but with a caring and compassionate concern for all my fellow humans.
The problem I have with "as stated by Our Creator in the Holy Bible
I could care less if about who gets married. It should be up to each and every state period. California made the amendment to there constitution the voters spoke they anti gay marriage crowd won. They system that our fore fathers set up worked. This is and always has been a states rights issue. If the faggots want to change then change the voters mind and get it changed. Regardless how it turns out big deal. If they are allowed to get married fine. If they are not fine. If those people want to get married so fucking bad then move to Maine Mass or any other state that allows it.
Now saying that California can have civil unions with all the rights of married couples. So they did get there way so what is the big fuss.
They lost take your lumps stop bitching it is the way it is so they need to stop acting like idiots and start acting like adults.
@Conanabanana02, You took the words outta my mouth!
@MadVulcan, let's lay off on the name calling shall we? If we're going to resort to name calling I could come up with a few names you won't like, drop the "faggot" remarks. Gay people have every right to protest, its a right given by the Constitition. You also said gays should just "live with it", its a good thing that black citizens didn't live by that motto or they might still be second class citizens.
@Diolma Have you even read the bible? Sodom and Gamorrah were struck down for a quite a few reasons, homosexuality was only a very small part of it. I suggest you read it before making a fool of yourself. You should go join Fred Phelps and his flithy church, I'm sure you would fit in nicely. I'd love to debate you on the biblical merits of the "Good Book", but since you clearly have no real understanding of it, it would be a waste of my time.
Of course they have the right to protest they just look stupid doing it. They lost and if they want to win then get back to work right away to change voters minds.
Again there is no right or wrong with this. After all is not the issue really to have the same rights as married people? So who cares what they call it if it is the same rights. If a civil union gives them the same rights as a paper saying marriage what the problem?
Seems to me they are arguing over a word. Nope the fags need to grow a thick skin and smarten up.
Y'all are too 'funny! Notice I VERY carefully kept RELIGION out of my statements! Mostly because, by no means did I want to open THAT can o' worms! So I will continue to look at this from a strictly 'legal' standpoint and the definitions thereof.
BTW TGIX, you made my point FOR me, who are YOU to question someones (or a group of someones) right to marry as many to one husband/wife as they want? Who are any of us to take THAT 'right of freedom' away? Isn't that what our society is built on?
To me, this all comes down to NUMBERS! IF we say two, then why not three? Why not more? where is the line drawn? Who says when enough is enough? Once that boundary is set, who gets to say 'This far and no further'? You, TGIX? Me? conanabana? madvulcan? exentric? diolma? Usam Bin Ladin? KIM Jong Il? Barrack Obama? Dude next door?
Oh and Diolma, you DO know that a man in some country was forced by local custom, to MARRY HIS NEIGHBORS GOAT because of the 'laying with someone is the same as marrying said someone' law they have there. Guess what HE was caught doing! Guess how many times (not the marrying part) that happens in THIS country? Who knows, it just might happen, with enough, uhhh, support? This IS one of the few countries where ANY law, not matter how silly, could be VOTED INTO BEING! (c;}
OK Mad - now you have called ME a name, so next time I refer to you as the troll you can't say shit.
As for the whole gay marriage thing... Why not? We can allow same sex marriage and NOT allow multiple wives. What the gay people want (like me) is to be able to say "hey, this is so-and-so, when I'm laying dying in the hospital SHE makes the decisions", and to be able to claim each other during tax time. It's not the "before god" marriage we're all looking for - it's the legal obligations that come along with it. There are many gays that want to marry in a church, but that's them. What right do any of us have to tell them "no, you're gay, you can't be married before the eyes of God" - NONE of us do.
As for multiple marriages, my problem with that is the same problem I have with most religions: BRAINWASHING. Look at Diolma as a perfect example of brainwashing. Granted, there are some (very few) religions out there that don't brainwash, but that's a different topic. I read a book about the LDS (or the one before them) and it was a book that opened my eyes to what they go through, and how America looks from their point of view. I don't agree with what they do, but THEY do, and they deserve the right to practice their religion just as much as we do. I don't agree with it, but if the Catholics and Christians and Muslims can practice their religions then why can't ALL religions?
As for California:
With all your financial problems you have right now, don't you think you SHOULD allow them to get married? Think of the money you'll make off of marriage licenses, the money caterers will make, the money EVERYONE involved with a wedding will make. Sure sounds like your state needs the money, but won't do what it takes to get it.
I hope this works.... I LOVE this video clip.
Gosh Darn The Truth does Sting, does it not? If sticks and stones bruise your perverted bones, WHAT WILL IT FEEL LIKE WHEN YOUR UNREPENTANT BODY IS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRREEEEEE????????????? HOOWWW WILL IT FFFEEELLLLL, YE SINNNEEEERRRRRSSSSSSS?!?!?!????????
WTH3, I am reasonably sure you do not want to be affiliated with me in any sense of the word, but I truly admire your talent for stating the Truth in an inoffensive yet incontrovertible fashion.
WHAT WILL IT FEEL LIKE WHEN YOUR UNREPENTANT BODY IS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRREEEEEE????????????? HOOWWW WILL IT FFFEEELLLLL, YE SINNNEEEERRRRRSSSSSSS?!?!?!????????
And that's your OPINION based on religious teachings. And that's the only argument religious people make with the gay marriage "issue." There is no LEGAL reason why same-sex marriages can't happen. They just want, under the eyes of the law, to be viewed as a married couple like any hetero marriage. As simple as that.
@diolma- To borrow a like from Brian Kinney :"If going to Heaven meant that I had to spend an eternity with then I'd rather go to hell". I also noticed that you ignored my comments, why am I not surprised?
Sorry i messed up the qoute: :
HUH Ak did I say Ak is a blankity blank? Again on this issue I could care less if they get the right to marry fine if not fine really as long as they get all the rights of a married couple regardless if it is called civil unions or marriage they do at least deserve the rights of married couples and that is all I have to say about that.
Have you been smokin weed today TGIX because you are making no sense.
