No one asked you on here for your opinion but you decided just to post it anyway...
Yeah. In a RANT forum. What else is a rant going to be based on but opinions?
If you are concerned about what other people are doing in there sexual lives perhaps you should get off the computer and discover one of your own. Who
gives a crap if gays want to get married. Freedom for all.
Feeling guilty there?
I'm a little offended that people snap at me because I don't straight-up advocate gay marriage. I'm not offended by the marriage itself... I won't
go out of my way to crash a gay wedding or anything.
The people who established our country were not Bible-thumpers. Not sure where you got that idea. Anyways, not sure where you're going with this. To
me, you appear as an insecure person worried that two people of the same gender marrying is going to affect your way of life. Don't you have better
priorities, and things to worry about?
The people who founded our country were, by majority, Christians. Where do you think we get conservatives? Conservatives believe in "conserving" the
Bible-based values our country started out with.
The "bible thumping ancestors" also kept blacks as slaves, does that make that ok too just because they did it?
Never said it did.
I wasn't the one quoting our ancestors, Obama was.
I was simply pointing out that "We're all equal" and "Gays should be allowed to be married" were not the same views back then, nor are they
Also, if we stuck to our "bible thumping ancestors" they'd definitely be against you with your spiked collar and emo makeup
Once again... I am not advocating everything our ancestors said, did, or stood for. Obama said a very general, stupid statement about the constitution
our ancestors wrote up. That's ALL I was pointing out.
If gay marriage bothers you then I have a solution for you-Don't get gay married.
Everyone is confusing my personal beliefs with the purpose of my rant.
I am not ranting against gay marriage in itself. I'm ranting against the ignorance surrounding it, and how my personal beliefs often offend the
people around me who ASK me for my opinions. If I don't full-on promote it, then I am a gay basher. In fact, it seems as though there are some people
here on ATS taking it too personally as well.
Here is my opinion. Let politicians and religious zealots hash it out. Live in peace with everyone as much as they respect your boundaries. If they
stalk and harass you, then it's a legal issue.
Exactly my thoughts!
Standby op for someone to trot out the boilerplate that you secretly harbour homosexual desires, that is how any challenges our usually silenced.
As for 2 grown responsible loving adults getting married...I am all for it!
Fine with me, let them do what they will.
But, just because I won't go out of my way to travel to a pro-gay rally doesn't make me a gay basher. I wish some people wouldn't look at it that
