I think my position is pretty clear and your analogy doesnt relate to me at all. I dont care about christians or any other religion becoming a
I thought I made that clear as well when I said, i wasnt religious at all.
You cant even troll correctly
The only troll I see is you.
What makes you think I read, let alone remember every post you make??
He said it very clearly in the post you were replying too. The quote you are attacking him for was something he quoted from another member's post.
I believe what TriForce is saying, and please correct me if I'm wrong, is that he doesn't care about religious groups or their agenda, and even if
gay rights were a minority, which they are not, he isn't bothered by the idea of them getting married.
Minority/Majority aside, it doesn't matter. This country is supposed to allow for and enforce equal rights, regardless of race, creed, national
origin, or sexual preference. The laws of this country should serve to protect the equal rights of all people, regardless of how many might disagree
with any particular demographic's behaviors, so long as they are not hurting other people.
If anyone is trolling here it's not TriForce. He didn't even make the statement you are responding to.
And if Christians become the minority, good! Less crazy zealots who believe in boogeymen and sky wizards to try and compromise the rights of law
abiding, contributing members of society. No one can deny that it's the neo-christian extreme who are leading the charge against equal rights for gay
people. When Prop 8 was going on I was receiving door hangers and snail mail every day from various religious asking me to support it - and I don't
even live in California!
But the topic of this thread isn't gay marriage, and whether or not it should be allowed. The topic, as I understand it, is why the hell they keep
harping on this topic. Well, I believe the reason why is because there is such a strong front against gay marriage and equal rights in this country,
lead primarily by religious groups, that it creates a very heated and controversial (even though it shouldn't be a controversial topic) circus
sideshow that the media thinks we all want to see. We are not voting as a people, the Supreme Court is going to decide what is constitutional. There
is no point going on and on and on, because this isn't legislation. You cannot call your congressman and have any effect on the outcome (as if you
SO yeah, OP.. I agree with you that they're beating a dead horse and it should stop. Why are so many people so interested in dictating what other
people can do? Why is the media so predatory in the way it reports current events?
Maybe the answer is for all of us to turn off our TVs and stop feeding the machine.
