I've had enough of this gay marriage crap. Before everybody lights up their flamethrowers or sharpening their knives, let me say a few things. I
really don't care about gay marriage. What ever two consenting adults want to do with their lives is fine with me. I think that Government needs to
get out of the marriage business. If two people want to be recognized as a couple for legal purposes, it should be the same as forming a corporation.
Go to the local Government, fill out some papers and that's it. When it comes to the marriage part, if your religion recognizes your type of
relationship, you have the ceremony. If it doesn't, I'm pretty sure that you can find one that will, or start your own. For those who don't
recognize religion, I'm pretty sure that you can come up with something.
My reason for starting this thread is an incident that I was involved with last night. I took a date (female) to a very nice restaurant for dinner
last night. A few tables over were two women, supposedly celebrating their marriage, making out. I'm not talking about just kissing, I'm talking
hands up skirts, bared breasts, the whole works. If a heterosexual couple was doing the same thing, I would still complain.
I asked our waiter if he could say something to them and he ignored me. I finally asked the manager if he would say something and he told me that he
didn't like it either, but, he was going to say nothing. When I asked him why, I found out that the two women worked at a University that was a few
blocks away. The Manager told me that if he said something to them, there would be a group demonstrating out side the restaurant the next day and he
didn't want the publicity. I remembered the guy from Mozilla and didn't say anything else.
I know that the two women were probably in the minority, but, what got me is the restaurant's fear of saying something to them. The Manager offered
to discount my check, but, I refused and even tipped the waiter, because, I could see that he was as uncomfortable as I was and didn't have a choice
in the matter.
Anything else like this and the couple would have been removed and possibly even arrested, but, when you are politically protected group, even
extortion is legal.
