Two close friends of mine are a gay couple. I`ll call them Dan and Steve. These aren`t their real names.

Dan is in his 70s. Steve is in his 60s. They both live primarily on Dan`s pension. They own their own home together, and have done since they became a couple, over 25 years ago.

They recently got a civil partnership, which in my country gives the same rights as marriage. They did this because one day, Dan will die.

Without the rights that civil partnership gives them, Steve will not have visiting rights to be with his dying partner in hospital. Steve will not be able to continue collecting Dan`s pension, and will end up without any income. Steve will not directly inherit ownership of their home, and will have to sell it in order to pay the inheritance tax.

They got "married" so that Steve will be safe in his home and life after Dan dies. And after being together for over 25 years, they have every right to want that.

Gay people can`t be gay without marriage? Marriage is, hands down, the least successful social institution ever invented. Only an idiot needs a stupid ceremony to be faithful to a partner. Fighting to be married is like fighting for the privilege of eating only white rice every day. Morons.

jkfld, how does the Bible support the fundamentalist stance on gay marriage better than the moderate version? Because of a few lines from Leviticus and one from Paul`s letters? Have you ever even heard a moderate or liberal Christian argument based on theology supporting gay marriage?

Christians are not bound by Mosaic Law. Our Law is based on solely two commandments, not even ten. And Paul himself states that sometimes he gives his opinion and sometimes he`s speaking directly for Christ. Paul also says that women should cover their hair in church. I kind of doubt that was very important to Jesus based on what Jesus did teach in the Gospels.

In fact, Paul wrote that the reason to marry was so not to screw around. Then hell, let gays marry too. Why should gay people be having fun while all the married people never have sex?

Moderate and liberal Christians don`t confront fundies on issues of theology because we are all sick and tired of them and their n

America is NOT a tribe, it is a country. America is NOT Christian, is has many religions and favors none of them above the other by law (if not by the people).

If the idea of two consenting adults of the same sex getting married damages your idea of marriage, then you should not be married in the first place because clearly you do not understand what marriage is, how private it is and are too concerned with others to fully concentrate on your own spouse.

Colbert is not what liberals think conservatives are...he is parodying the ridiculousness that has become the GOP.

also, someone mentioned getting 5Cats to be quiet...sorry, but he might just be a automatic trolling machine sent back in time to kill all pleasure and hope anyone actually gets from talking with others on a message board and there is no known way to stop him.

logic and facts bounce off him like spit wads on a tanks hull so don`t bother. when you see the 5Cats coming, take cover, sit very still and hope it just keeps going.

@bataleon27:
Really?
Then why are gays pushing the issue so badly if "Life isn`t about you and what you want?"
Hypocritical much?
It`s a two way street my friend. There`s room enough for both of us to get by if we keep our noses out of each others business.

@monsterzero - because life is not always about you and what you want. if you choose not to allow gay people the right to do as they wish, you`re just as bad as the people that took your rights away from you.
I`m sure the majority of gay people who wish to get married did not take away your rights, so why punish them?

I really don`t care if gays marry, I don`t agree with homosexuality but who am I to say someone can`t be happy.
The question I have though is, "Why should I vote to create rights for others, when others have voted to take some of my rights away?"

@Edgarska: Colbert is a PARODY of "what conservatives" think: He pretends to be what Liberals THINK Conservative are like.
It couldn`t be further from reality if they tried.
Proof? This posting...

Are you suggesting Blacks in NC are `conservatives ` too? Eh?

Looks like you began mentioning it right there, when you weren`t mentioning it.

That`s the joke.
It doesn`t make sense because that`s how a conservative thinks.
