Marriage Amendment Vote as Early as Wednesday

MoveOn has a petition to help combat the Federal Marriage Amendment that would once again reinforce the notion of gays and lesbians in this ‘land of the free, home of the brave, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’ land as second class citizens.

Call your Senator. Call your Reps. This is bigotry cloaked in Christianity.

    Fact, Gay marriage is a big fat lie! Pick another term. Marriage is well defined for 2,500 years.
    Since when do two Moms make a Dad, or worse, when does two Dads make a Mom? No one in their right mind would choose anything other than a Mom & Dad. What’s next sex w/ children or animals? It all makes me puke!
    Peace be w/ you!

    Well defined for 2500 years? Polygamy has been the norm for the majority of the last 2500 years. The current version of “marriage” is a relatively new concept, especially as a legal entity.

    And straight people have been having sex with animals and children for thousands of years. In fact, the FBI reports that 95% of all sexual offenders are straight, white men.

    Can’t blame that one on THE GAYS, Kato.

    What a load of crap, Anton. Since when do a Mom & Dad make parents? I bet yours are lovely, since they obviously taught you to be tolerant and to think with your own head.

    Oh good – I see the bigots are back!

    1) Children cannot give consent.
    2) Animals cannot give consent.
    3) Give me a fucking break and get off my blog, asshole.
    4) Peace be w/you.

    As we all know, the “mother and father” argument doesn’t work. Are het married couples who decide to not have (or can’t have) children not legitimately married because they’re not parents?

    I am so sick of these people. Crawl back in the cave you stumbled out of. Until equal rights are equal for all consenting adults, gays and lesbians aren’t going to back down. Figure it out and deal.

    Even though my degree in constitutional law seems to have made me completely unemployable at least this is an areas I know something about- there are some actual questions that gay marriage would bring up though- especially if a court decision is used to bring that about. If gay marriage (or a wider definition of marriage) is brought about through the courts than it would leave the federal government with very little recourse to outlaw other types of prohibited unions such as incest and polygamy, since both could be undertaken by consenting adults.

    I would favor gay marriage coming about through the legislator- but the courts in this area make me a little jumpy, doctrinal limbs formed too quickly prove unstable and if I had to guess the supreme court wouldn

    OUr economic prosperity and the men who gave you the right to even speak this way existed because of the family…one man and one woman. Christianity is not barbaric nor has it expired. Even if it was false it has brought the US to this place…and God has been the center (not always acknowledged or followed) of our nation and He says in His word that homosexuality is perversion and is wrong. I pray for you who don’t get it yet…for you who want to live in this “lifestyle” and call it a family? Families can reproduce…God made it this way. You think because you can have sexual intercourse that you have made a family union. I don’t say any of this to bash anyone. Just open your eyes…you say your open minded…what if your wrong and your creator wants something better for you…I would suggest to you that he does and so do I. I will vote, lobby, and die to protect marriage and every other thing that is right.

    for you who want to live in this “lifestyle” and call it a family?

    Two loving parents taking care of children is a ‘lifestyle’ and not a family? I am so frigging sick of having everything I do reduced to some fucking idea of a ‘lifestyle’. We are starting to talk like the advertisers that so conveniently compartmentalize us. What do you consider the ‘homosexual lifestyle’? I think you’d be tremendously surprised that most homosexual people in this country are just as boring as all the straight people. I don’t have a lifestyle – a collection of accoutrements and friends-as-accessories. I have a life.

    Families can reproduce… God made it this way.

    Except for all those straight couples where either partner is infertile or cannot reproduce. Are their marriages a sham, too?

    what if your wrong and your creator wants something better for you

    What if the Bible is more a function of political and economic forces mixed with indigenous folklore and it’s indicative cultures and not the actual word of (somebody’s) God? Most of the world is not Christian. And ‘something better for me?’ Something better than having an ultimately fulfilling life that is a celebration of love and integrity and raising children and a family in a community of abundance and kindness?

    You and Osama.

    But as a side not if you are going to talk about God it is propper to use He, His or Him as appropriate- lobby for a law about that
