LIVE WITH IT!
since 1930, criminals have called homosexual boys -gay- if the movement of pool misguided fools wants to use that word as their banner then go ahead. i will still use the word -gay- as adjective for happy--and i think the -gay boys- are an angry bunch. lets not forget about the angry lesbian also. individual rights vs survival of the human race is what the movement is advocating. to what do these angry people attribute their being ???? oh well, good luck, oops i misspelled that last word. please lets just go back to calling humans -homosexual- -heterosexual- and -bisexual- when it comes time to describing the choices they make. thank you for reading,
ira, go bring your filth to another country
I to will fight against the the gay right movement everyday. I will also let my friends and family know how wrong it is to be gay.
1 a (1): the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law
1st off I have no issue with a union between two men or two women or with that union entitleing them to the exact same rights for taxation and or insurance/medical basically anything to do with finance I do however believe that with reguards to adoption the Parent of the child should have the right in the case of an open adoption to deciede weather or not that a same sex family should be allowed to petition to adopt thier child(NOTE I said open adoptions only!!)closeed adoptions should be to beneffit the child by giving them the best chance to succede in life.
But the term Marriage is not something that same sex couples should be allowed to latch onto just to farther thier quest for rights. You are not the same as a man and women union own up to what you want respect for and realise that in order to get respect from people you need to give it.
Dear Confused by Marriage, please re-read your definition. The ending talks about marriage as a consensual, contractual legal relationship. There is nothing there about religion and the only bar to changing the law and, thus, the definition is religion.
If a parent or parents want to have a say in the adoptive parents, they should enter into an arranged adoption.
What respect are you asking gay couples who wish to be married to give to heterosexual couples? That their relationship is inferior?
How many times must this be voted down before it becomes finally dropped. The voters have spoken and are ignored.
What is wrong is ignorance and bigotry
not to mention the desire of some that gays accept a second class status for their relationships.
Marriage is between a male and a female. Same sex unions don't even exist in nature! Our sex organs were made so that we can reproduce...why don't gays go for civil unions? Why are they trying to redefine marriage? Look at history every society that allows homosexual unions...has failed. Please protect the "tradition family"...it has made this country prosperous for the past 233 years!
What buisness is it of your's Sunny what other people do with their sex organs?
Btw if the good Christians among us get to stone Gays does that mean that the rest of us get to stone the,swine eaters,the fornicaters,and worse of all those who use toilets rather than digging a hole the required distance from their town.
Sunny, first, there are homosexual animals. Second, reproduction has nothing to do with marriage. Some married people do not have children and some people with children are not married. Third, homosexuals are trying to overcome centuries of discrimination, the same as other minority groups. Fourth, there are many reasons societies fail. You cannot demonstrate cause and effect, because it does not exist. You cannot demonstrate that the US has succeeded for a mere 233 years only because marriage is narrowly defined. Fifth, as marriage is a legal contract between people who love each other, how about changing Church weddings into religious unions?
Paen, I also want to be able to stone those who mix linen and wool, those who fail to honor the Sabbath - on the correct day, and those who swear.
RESPECT. I have no problem with consenting homosexuals doing their will, nor with government recognition of their commitment. The respect I ask is to refrain from re-defining or making up words to try to change norms. "Homosexual" works fine, stop trying to re- define "Gay," and "Same-sex" is just dumb. "Husband", "Wife", and "Spouse" work fine, drop "Marriage Partner".
