I strongly disagree, it stops wherever society says it stops at a particular time. If marriage is defined only by human beings then it can be changed
into whatever form the majority believes it should take. That said you are correct it is a slippery slope, and we are on it.
Well, good thing that in the realm of reasoning, you've failed to connect where gays being marriage leads to children or animals or multiple
Because last I checked...children are not adults and thus can not consent to marriage or sex....animals are animals and can not consent to marriage or
sex....and well actually I don't see anything wrong with polygamy.
But really, you people absolutely warp my mind when you try to correlate gay people getting married with animals or kids getting married. What drugs
are you on, and seriously, where can I get some?
This "issue" is a non-issue. As much as abortion is an issue. It's the government entering the realm of someones private business. And at least
with abortion, there is some argument to justify making it an issue. With gay marriage, you're effectively legislating love and purposely making
their lives harder by not giving them the legal benefits marriage brings.
Seriously, I dare anyone against gay marriage to look up what gay couples miss out in benefits from not being able to marry. It's a fairly extensive
list. Look it up and tell me it isn't a little mess up to try to justify not letting them be married.
And by married, I mean by the state. Call it whatever the hell you want. I agree a church has the right to allow or deny marriage to anyone. They
should be given the benefits marriage brings.
