What's dangerous about gay marriage?
4/4/2013 3:57 PM
You tossed out "2 people" which is kinda a big deal.  So I'm tossing out "adults."  At least it involves 2 people.

I was simply aiming for "equality" and "happy". 

Are you comparing child molesters to bisexuals now?


Why do you hate bisexuals?

Your argument is "hold on a minute, let's think about what we're doing here."  I understand.  So let's do that.....what's could be wrong with SSM?

Why are all polygamists bisexual?

I am too.  Does marrying a toaster make you happy? Go for it.

Sigh. 

The doors it will open in the name of "equality" and "making people happy".

So you just hate polygamists?

I don't think "open doors" is a good enough reason.  I guess we're stuck there.

No, I don't hate polygamists.

I think the doors that will be opened is reason enough not to make a snap decision. 

I know it's not PC but I don't think we need to barrel down uncharted paths to appease a few.    Figure out where the path may lead and then make a decision.

OK, let's allow polygamy. Is there a problem with that?

I agree that snap decisions aren't a good idea.  As in, "BAN ALL GUNS!" after a tragedy doesn't make sense.  Breathe and think first.  

I don't necessarily think this is a "snap decision."  I suppose it's happening relatively fast, but it's been brewing for some time now.  This isn't a new idea that's come up in the last few weeks or months.

Yes, relatively fast.   I know it didn't start last week.   I don't know when the first same sex marriage cermony was performed(or where).  I know DOMA in '96 and I know it was challenged in '10 or '11. 

The fact that it's still a hot-button topic tells me that we haven't sorted out the particulars.     I don't think the gay lifestyle is far more mainstream than it was 10-20 years ago. 

But there are obviously still enough people with loud enough voices to dispute gay marriage.  Why?

Our society moves much faster now but it took a 100 years before a black man could sit at the same counter and eat lunch.   I'd say the gay movement is moving much, much faster.
4/4/2013 4:35 PM
Religion.  Homophobia.  People afraid of change.  People afraid of polygamous marriage.

It is.  Messages and ideas spread quicker now with better technology.  So while I understand where you are coming from, being uncomfortable with making something right because it's moving too fast isn't the best reason.
