Because he's run out of argument.

I assume that to be true.   "One man, one woman" has been the generally accepted definition of marriage for centuries.   There's never been a "two adults of opposite gender but same race" definition anywhere but in badluck's mind.    If he thinks the definition should be changed by the government, that's fine.  But there is no precedent for it.

BL ran out of argument a LONG time ago, but he's like an animal that keeps ramming its head into a hard object trying to knock it over even though it's futile.

He'll eventually tire and leave, but when he feels better he'll come back full force and want to restart an argument he gave up on before.

Why do you ask questions that have been answered?
Just want to make sure we're clear on what direction the trend is going.

Well, the government has already redefined marriage to include gay couples. So...?

DOMA defined marriage as one man/one woman.  So...?

States determine marriage law(11 allow gay marriage). DOMA will literally be dead in a matter of days.

And has that not already been answered?

Seriously, we like to think we're being given more liberties.   It seems we are.   But, with these "new rights", I think we're finding out that the govt is keeping an ever more watchful eye on us.   You know why?   Because society now is NOT better than society in the past.    We **** up our liberties. 

So, I'll ask again, does allowing SSM somehow make our society better?  Or does it simply placate a small percentage of people?
6/18/2013 10:24 AM
Yes, it makes society better.

Because you say so?
6/18/2013 11:17 AM
Are you now aware, tec, that BL is the Czar of Everything?

Because BL says so is BL's standard argument for anything. Occasionally he switches it up to "because other people agree with me". The rest is just filler aimed to support those two "arguments".

Mike asked. That's my opinion. Do you disagree?
6/18/2013 11:37 AM
I do disagree.

Political correctness is the ruination of American society.

For the sake of "progress" and "liberty", we are now being told how we're supposed to feel (or not feel), what we're supposed to think (or not think), what we're supposed to do (or not do), and what we're supposed to say (or not say) in any given situation.

SSM is yet another "politically correct" thing that we are now expected to embrace for fear of being castigated by the left.  Who, ironically, are much more closed minded than those people they oppose for that very reason.

So no, this does not sound like society is better off by this.

You're wrong.

You don't have to embrace ****. You don't have to do it. You don't have to change your beliefs. You don't have to like it. You can keep your life exactly the same.

What you can't do is stop other people from living the life they want to live. Another persons marriage doesn't impact your life or infringe on your rights. Don't infringe on their life.
