Crakr,
"It's as absurd as suing a Jewish deli for not putting bacon on your pastrami sandwich."

Please site ONE example where this is happening.
None? Okay so you made it up to prove appoint.

Not valid.....moving on with my civil liberties.

that's the basis of the Democrat Party and Liberalism


Certainly, however conservatism suffers from the same problem perhaps not to the extent as you point out. While there's no "punishment" in the case of gay marriage, there's plenty of it when it comes to the war on drugs. In fairness it did start out as a Democrat (or really DemoKKKrat of days yonder) idea but conservatives and Republicans have all too happily embraced the idea of jailing people for ingesting narcotics.

Crakr, Civil Unions didn't suffice because they were NOT equal. Each state could assign whatever rights they wanted to them. Differing between states.

Are you married in Alaska but not in Texas? Okay in California but not in Maine? You see my point. The Feds must acknowledge the relationship. There is no legal reason not to. I'm sorry if that doesn't fit in with your religious ideology, but then, I don't have to life by YOUR ideals.

@GeoffwasHere: Um, not really!

God created the plants and animals first, then Adam, eh? If you're going to cite the Bible? Get it right, eh?

Genesis 1

But something I recently noticed? God created light. But that means God came from the darkness...

To me? This has profound philosophical and religious meaning! What exactly? I'm still working that out.

God comes from the darkness...

If you want to get biblical... (I am not usually the one to go here, atheist...)

God created man (Adam) and nothing else. No plants or animals. God decided that man should not be alone. God then created plants. This did not suffice. God then created animals. Adam rejected the animals as a potential mate and so God created a woman. Then there was a talking snake and sh~!. Ahh... It's a good read.

JadesDitoyr: ah! ic now.
And I quite agree: this sort of "top-down" legislation covers a lot of area. Far too much. Not only Priests but "commoners" as well!

There's several laws being debated which address this sort of thing. Of course the MSM HATES these laws! But allowing individuals, even if they're part of a company or corporation, to disagree is the cornerstone of freedom.

Who honestly thinks that "The Government" knows better than "The People"? Sadly, that's the basis of the Democrat Party and Liberalism: Conform or be punished.

This sort of thinking has never once, in human history, been successful. But they keep on trying to force it upon "the masses"...

@5Cats
I mean the ceremony itself. A photographer that now must be there for the wedding and reception, taking pictures. The caterer who must serve the food. The minister who officiates the wedding.

@Cajun: Pure genius!

@RytWing: Yes, I've heard Bonobo Monkeys touted as examples of "natural sexuality". Disgusting! They have sexual relations with infants FFS!
"Mother Nature" is NOT a very good role model!

@JadesDitoyr: In Canada? After gay marriage became fully legal? All Marriage Commissioners (I was dating one at the time) got a letter: I f you refuse to marry gay people? Your commission will be instantly revoked.
No "if's and's or but's".

However? IDK what you mean by "refusing to participate" since it's not like YOU have to get married, eh? No one can force you to accept gay marriage, but it's still legal. Two entirely different things.

Marriage is and always will be a religious institution. If you want a legal contract and the benefits, fine.

But God doesn't join gay spirits together... sorry folks.

@Gerry
"Okay, well no one is making them perform same-gender marriages. We're just asking eh federal government to alter ssi & tax law."

I'm against any government sanctioned marriage, SSI & Tax Law shouldn't be impacted by anybody's marital status.

You might not be pushing to force the Church into it, yet, but it is coming.

Already, we as a nation are forcing Bakers, Florists, and Photographers to participate in these weddings. Why should a priest be any different?

There is no theological difference between my Minister, and myself. He is no more sanctified than I am, he is no more forgiven than I am, he is no holier than I am.

Why should I be denied the privileges he has? Why should he have special rights?

Gerry, if he can refuse to participate in something because he feels it is a Sin, why can I not refuse when I am equally as convicted?

I think we can all agree that there are two sides to this coin.
On one hand homosexuality is so prevalent these days that, sure, it's ok for the gays to marry. On the other side is the question, where do we draw the line?
The line has been drawn. The question is how far are we as a society willing to move that line. All of the aforementioned sexual preferences could be considered "normal" some day.
How far are you willing to move that line? And let me remind you that nudism, public masterbation, and affection for none human objects could all fit under the "it's natural" umbrella.
Food for thought.

5 year-olds? I'm not proud of myself right now...


@mykunter: That's "toddler-con" do NOT look it up! Those Japanese have p0rn for every imaginable situation.

Of course I had to check: Google, mercifully, returns very few offensive images based on that search

But no, I was thinking of other things...

"ain't" isn't a proper word


Well, you know...

...it just ain't.

(That's funny my spellchecker ain't complaining)

ANYWAY!!!

Cannot even discuss the topic, folks can e-mail me if they're really wanting to know...


Considering that this discussion is started on this forum, unless you mention it here it has no bearing on this discussion. I'm not going to make extrapolations on answers known only to one party.

Marriage was special, it meant family, it was a consecration, a timeless tradition. Now it's being turned into a sick joke.


Well, not really. Marriage has been wavering from
"great" to "awful" depending on the individual situation for thousands of years.

None of which are going away any time soon


That is true! And not the 'fault' of gays either. The decline of marriage in Western Society has 99 reasons, but homosexuals ain't one of them.

I cannot believe my spell-check thinks "ain't" isn't a proper word!

Actually? I can think of a few things, but they're even LESS likely to become "legal" than 6 year-olds...

At least she'll have Sunday's off.


@MeGrendel: Nope. Sunday is "gangbang night"!

Gee I wonder WHAT exactly could possibly be considered 'even worse' than pedophilia?

Nice!

Gays and lesbians are suing all sorts of places for not hosting or providing services for their marriages on religious grounds.


You're complaining about the wrong law. Two men, or women, seeking marriage do not have the right to make any private party host said marriage.

Marriage was special, it meant family, it was a consecration, a timeless tradition. Now it's being turned into a sick joke.


None of which are going away any time soon.

polygamy, bestiality, pedophiles and even worse.



Okay... So what? So what?
and...
Considering that this is a relationship between two consenting adults that objection is moot
lastly...
Gee I wonder WHAT exactly could possibly be considered 'even worse' than pedophilia?

When you can't define marriage legally anymore, then any perverted relationship can become a "marriage".


So why should marriage be defined democratically again?

Pedophile is based on "Age of Consent" I mean:

Wiki: Age OF Consent

So simply changing that alters what's legal and what's not.
"In the 21st century, several Western countries have raised their ages of consent recently. These include Canada (in 2008 - from 14 to 16); and in Europe, Iceland (in 2007 - from 14 to 15), Lithuania (in 2010 - from 14 to 16), and Croatia (in 2013 - from 14 to 15)."
See?

@mykunter: I do understand why people want to get married, even if the odds are it will fail. I'm a romantic at heart, eh? :heart:

Society is an adaptable creature, it will accept/reject new ideas, for better or for worse.

Gerry: Civil unions should've sufficed. If they didn't then it would've been better to improve them than hijack the tradition of marriage.

"no one is making them perform same-gender marriages."

Yes, it's already starting to happen. Gays and lesbians are suing all sorts of places for not hosting or providing services for their marriages on religious grounds.

It's as absurd as suing a Jewish deli for not putting bacon on your pastrami sandwich.

I don't care about equality for taxes, benefits, etc. you want that, fine, I get it. But this wasn't about equality. This was about hijacking the definition of marriage and wrecking it, making the term meaningless.

Marriage was special, it meant family, it was a consecration, a timeless tradition. Now it's being turned into a sick joke.

You can claim that it won't lead to "unintended consequences", but we were told the same thing about civil unions too.
