Posted by MikeT23 on 4/2/2013 5:53:00 PM (view original):I'm missing your point.
Posted by burnsy483 on 4/2/2013 5:49:00 PM (view original):So you agree that some issues carry more weight than others?
Posted by MikeT23 on 4/2/2013 5:47:00 PM (view original):No. I'm explaining that just because your religion believes something, doesn't mean that you have the right to force others to follow your belief.
Posted by burnsy483 on 4/2/2013 5:43:00 PM (view original):OK. Are you comparing marriage to beverage drinking?
Posted by MikeT23 on 4/2/2013 5:35:00 PM (view original):Mormons don't think it's right to drink beer or coffee. But their religious beliefs doesn't allow them to ban them from others.
Posted by burnsy483 on 4/2/2013 5:33:00 PM (view original):Why does one have to be cold-hearted? Couldn't they be religious? Or tradition-bound?
Posted by MikeT23 on 4/2/2013 5:28:00 PM (view original):How about this:
I've already said "I don't care."
I'm just asking for a good reason to allow it. I've mentioned lots of things that pass your Big Four that isn't allowed. Those reasons aren't enough for me to join the "Gay Marriage" march.
Take a step back and consider this statement: "Two consenting adults love each other and want to get married." What cold-hearted person would want to prevent that?
And you're the guy who said I was being disrespectful for talking toaster marriage.
Let's not be disrespectful to gay marriage by comparing it to drinking coffee. Thanks in advance.
You said that if someone wants to marry someone of the same sex, they should be able to marry a toaster.
I'm explaining that "MY RELIGION SAYS NO" isn't a good reason to keep someone from doing something.
Then I guess you don't understand religion.
If your religion says "This is an affront to my God", it's hard to say "Yeah, go ahead."
I'm not one of those people but I would like a good reason to allow something that hasn't been allowed.
