That's a slippery slope fallacy Salt. I can point out the flaws in your logic if you would like.
Now why is it immoral for two people to be happily married? Why is it you are so sensitive about a single word if you are fine with civil unions and the like? Do you think it's immoral for people of different races to marry? This is the same thing. This is a basic civil rights issue, and a case will end up in the supreme court, and all gay marriage bans will be struck down. I just can't wait for it to happen.
What is the purpose of Union or Marriage in your belief system?
To be happy together?
So are you saying you need that Marriage title to do this?
In "Most" other belief systems - marriage is also for pro-creation.
Something that you may have a wee bit of a problem with...
Many people live together now - so the comments could have been directed in that direction, as well as those divorced, but everyone quickly jumped to the conclusion it is Anti - gay?
Why couldn't it just be Pro his beliefs
It doesn't always have to be a correlation to the exact opposite when you are anti/pro something.
I apologize for that generalization Live. As this hits close to home for me I'm pretty passionate about this topic and I HATE it when people discriminate against me and those like me.
I appreciate the passion - and defending your beliefs. It's part of what keeps this site interesting and educational.
The harder part is for those to get past differences and see/understand the other persons views/beliefs to better understand them... it should never come to thinking they don't care. I care deeply for my friends and would defend their rights to work, live, play, and share their love and commitment in the open - (sometimes from my own relatives who still use derogatory terms - from their own beliefs and how they were raised)
Not an easy thing to do - but I've learned to accept
and move on.
Still not turning in my conservative credentials
