We had this question already 1000 times that anti-gay-marriage folks should give reasons, but up-to-date I don't think we got any real reasons given
even after many times asking so politely : ) A subjective view or "dislike" or saying "Decent folks don't do such things" can hardly count as an
So..nevertheless I am ASKING AGAIN:
Why would GENDER play a role when it comes to marriage?
A marriage is a legal partnership formed before the law, and it's optional to also make this into a religious celebration. Nothing against it.
So..if GENDER would play a role...why would that be? Because "the authorities" or some ominous entity (your neighborhood priest??) would have "an
interest" that only men & woman enter a marriage because only men & woman can produce children?
Do "anti-gay-marriage" people imply that two gays, two men or two women, CAN NOT enter a marriage/partnership in the same way as do 1000s of hetero
couples every day? Why would that be? I know some gay folks which live like any other hetero couple, I don't see any difference in their "marriage" or
every day life and living together... and their SEX LIFE of course is not my concern respective can hopefully not be a criteria for forbidding them
For example, me and my wife don't want to have children.
When we married, I don't remember the judge asking "BUT DO YOU PLAN TO HAVE CHILDREN?"
I also don't remember having to fill out a survey to indicate whether we would use protection, in fact I don't remember being our sexes or sexual
preferences brought up in regards to marriage WHATSOEVER : )
So...why on earth then would it be an issue when two gays marry..why would GENDER be a criterion at all?
Because "someone" *thinks* that it's something "non decent"....based on their opinion? If so..then the remaining states in the US which still ban
gay-marriage should quickly change this because a law which is based on SUBJECTIVE opinions and prejudices is...very much from 1000 years from the
past, it's the same thing as saying interracial marriage should not be allowed because it's "not decent" or "immoral"..or other entirely nonsensical
And this is the reason "anti-gay-marriage" people CAN not give a real argument because this is what this is all about, personal opinions, nothing
By the way, I don't like Twizzlers. But my wife thinks they taste awesome, I needed to spit them out last time she got some and almost had to wash my
mouth because I *really* think that Twizzlers are the worst candy ever.
However, I don't go out protesting that Twizzlers should be taken off the market because I don't like them... : )
