No, it's not. It's about bigots who are scared of things they don't understand.


So in other words, you can't justify why the meaning of the word 'marriage', in a legal sense, should be extended to encompass gay civil unions, so you desperately lash out with a ad hominem attack?

It isn't terribly impressive you know.

The pro gay marriage group has not done itself any favours in this thread with its aggressive and arrogant personal attacks on anyone who disagrees with them.

You won't convince people with an approach like that. In fact, you may well find it is counter-productive.


The 'pro gay' groups wouldn't be so aggressive and arrogant if they weren't being first attacked.

The justification for the use of the term marriage is equality.

Equality or nothing. Can you tell me what is so wrong with equality?

In my humble opinion, one of the main purposes of marriage is reproducing/multiplying . why we, as human, need to be multiplied? The answer is simple: to maintain our existence in the planet. The larger number we have, the bigger chance we avoid our exticntion. I believe, with our limited scie tech related to human reproduction, clone, we may still be exposed toward the danger of extinction.

Now, the term “marriage” here is what makes us different from let’s say animals. Animal mates, the gave birth, and they also take care their babies in basic term as feeding and safety. But human, stand at the top of pyramid evolution, has created “marriage” a system in reproducing with the final purpose is to create a family
.
In a family, woman plays a role as mother associated with caring and loving, the “tender side”while man plays role as father associated with strength and leadership, the “solid” side. Those Ying and Yang work together creating a parenting partnership which creating family values such as respect, love, loyalty, commitment etc. we can’t deny that our first education start at home and still family hold the key in further stages of our maturity.

Therefore I believe, which also many people believe until this very second that the ideal society comes from the harmonious smaller units that works together (one family toward another) which only possible when they are succeeded in maintaining the family values.

Then we shall define that a good family need a man, a woman, (in term of reproduction and also fulfilling sexual needs in healthy way, mentally and physically) bound by equal and fair commitment (marriage, either by law or religioin, it doesn matter).
I really don’t care whether a man marries another man or woman with another woman. It’s their private but what I don’t understand is what do people expect with gay/lesbian marriage in term of society or humanity. Allow me to point out this way :
1. Gay/lesbi marriage unlike “normal” (I’m sorry if the word “normal” here sounds offending to some people, but I believe gay/lesbians, they arent normal in term of their sexual orientation nd physiological state) marriage cant prevent human from the danger of extiction (how can u expect them to multiple when they only have similar sexual organ)
2. You may say that they can adopt child from poor family thus helping the society but again please consider the kids physical and physiological state later on.

If I may choose what future generation like look in order to continue our human existency, to develop higher level of human civilisation, then I will choose that our children are raised in the best state which is in the family where they can get advantages from both sexes (their mom and dad). Unfortunately, from where I live now, my point of view here is considered as minority.

When you're white, it's easy to not see prejudice, as you see it as figure of speech. When you meet an American, you don't say, oh I have another American friend, I must introduce you. But when you're gay, black or Chinese, it seems to be you're a token friend. "Hey look at me, I am like so socially evolved, I know Puerto Ricans." Come on, it smacks of bigotry!

There aren't any academic studies to rely on, although there’s a Standford one, and many others that gay-activists defend their cases with. I'm happy with that; as I think pulling apart a family in that way is what marginalizes a group. Saying that blind people are inadequate as parents would be prejudiced towards the blind - wait, hold on, we are prejudiced towards the blind - I must check up on that, there must be a study somewhere to discount their parenting ability. Parenting is about giving unconditional love. Whether your children are thrown away Chinese baby girls, or mini-me's of you, you have to have unconditional love. Saying that a study needs to be done to determine whether gays are adequate at parenting, is the biggest load of bigotry. My God! I would rather have a spoilt little Chinese girl living in the cushy comfort of gay couples love, than know that there is no hope for her. Whether they are perfect parents is irrelevant, that they love her is all that anyone could ask for. I am not a gay-activist, I find it intolerable though that gays are so marginalised because of their sexual orientation, they are not less intelligent, less capable, less responsible. This is a human rights issue, people should have the right to the life they choose. Simple!

No one is saying we shouldn't bother to raise our kids. My position is in fact just the opposite, but there are a few out there that seem to think gay is contagious and that homosexual families are worse at raising kids as heterosexual families.

Until all the haters go out adn adopt the babies that are desperate for unconditional love, affection and a family - they really haven't got much of a point.

"let me love this child"

"No! you are not fit to! Let the child stay in the orphanage where it will grow up the way it should!"

Edit: Sapere aude, indeed.

NO , it is NOT an accurate "demographic" it is skewed ( lies from right wingers again), You right wing bigots are still lieing trying to make your points valid by more lies. The demographic is much, much, much larger than just 30,000 supporting gay rights & marriage. Latest polls say more than 40% back gay rights & marriage. Get it right right wing hypocritical LIARS. Oh by the way slimey newt is back in trouble over the Trayvon Martin case, seems he can't keep his racist mouth shut, blowing his chances at ever getting the right wing nomination. GLBT should have every right (some of you on here obviously take for granted) including LEGAL MARRIAGE.

Actually the definition of marriage that you keep referring to seems to be your own definition of marriage. You might want to do some research.

There are a few out there that seem to think gay is contagious..well, how do you explain the phenomena that over half (63%) of adult and adolescent males living with an HIV diagnosis in 2008 became infected through male-to-male sexual contact and only and 12% through heterosexual contact. Study finds that high occurrence in Africa of HIV among Homosexual Men and WHO warns that Male Homosexual Sex Fuelling Spread of HIV in Asia. not mentioning the higher rate of crime conducted by them (mostly homicide with crime of passion motive). it's an evidence that gay has contributed in spreading HIV as global pandemic and that's why people see them as contagious related to their risky sexual pattern and intercourse. and therefore, it's plain simple that kids, raised in homosexual families are facing higher risk in their mental and physical health.

if, let's say, by instituting gay/lesbian marriage can reduce this threat, then, less would resist, but if it's used for gaining society acceptance and reducing society awareness without showing significant evidence of reducing above threat, i think people have a right to be cautious and to be aware of their steps..

and talking about parenting, no foster parents(whether it's hetero or homo sexual) can ever substitute the bond of blood among the biological parents and their offspring. talking about unconditional love, is there any unconditional love higher and nobler than the love of a mom toward her children, she's willing to risk her life, carrying her baby for 9 months, breastfeeding it for another 1.5 years after delivery. those bond is hardly replaced/substituted by step parents...and talking about homosexual family being foster parents..the number is growing.. however i haven't read any studies related to detailed growth of foster children in a homosexual family form the children perspective concerning issues such as whether children raised in homosexual Households become gay or whether children be teased if they have homosexual parents or whether children be molested by homosexual parents?

Yes, sapere aude

300,000 people that's not a very big number compared to the population. As far as the number of people for it. I think is more like people don't realy care about the way two people who care to share there life together should live. I agree this is realy a non issue especially in the future. Love is not confined to a man or a woman did u love your parents growing up? That would mean u love a man and a woman or a man and a man or a woman and a woman. Just a thought

Your Idealism is showing. IDEALISM is a nice word - - not much else. Sometimes it looks good on paper.

Children need love and nurturing. They get that from loving caring parents. The mix of who those parents are is inconsequential.

Loving - nurturing parents - - - and a more accepting society is all that's needed. Children of same gender parents only issue is what comes from prejudice and hate outside their family.

Same gender parents have fought for the right to be parents. They don't take it for granted.

IMO - - the "one man/one woman" argument isn't even worthy of debate anymore.

More LIES put out by the right wing LIARS, more propoganda, to further their bigoted agenda, more falling for the lies, more willing to back a group who is comprised of KKK rhetoric , old, backwards, dead, long gone southern ways, scared racists with closed minds. Get rid of newt & santorum while you can people or they will drag this country down and into a war that divides this country again, another civil war. They are trying to turn friends against friends, divide and destroy this country. Do you not get it yet you blinded followers, you have bigoted RACISTS telling you how to live and how to think. Don't judge me. You don't have the RIGHT to. You don't know what I've been through. You don't know what I've felt, or how I feel right now. So find something better to do with your time, then judge someone you know NOTHING about!!!. Judge NOT lest ye be JUDGED!!
