I think I'm going to go play Fallout: New Vegas for a while to cool my jets. Talking to ignorant people who neither understand the movement's goals nor admit that they are denying other human beings basic civil rights with no moral standing is blood-boiling work. Feel free to PM me if you want to whine about the mean evil male-to-female lesbian who wants to force you to live in a country with equal rights for all adults in consenting relationships.
Just remember, boys and girls. Your civil rights end where mine begin, and I'll be damned if I let you deny me mine while you enjoy yours.
Seems like the world nowadays is more accepting of many things, if two people want to get married regardless of sex, go for it. It doesn't affect my life at all, so why should it bother me?

Let me guess, unfair to make gay people fill out forms and not straight people?
It's absolutely okay (even though I might not agree with it) to be a fucking bigot, sexist or racist person. Just keep it to your fucking self.
Marriage never started in churches to begin with, although historically it has now moved in that direction.
Anyways nobody is fucking forcing people to do something they don't agree with. If churches don't want to marry two dudes they don't have too. Churches are like clubs or exclusives organizations anyway. They don't have to let certain people in or non-club members in if they don't want too.
This is about giving HUMAN FUCKING BEINGS the same RIGHTS as other human beings and nothing more.
You should be more supportive of things like this because perhaps down the road people will start denying rights to religious people when they finally become a minority centuries down the road. Rights for all is in the best interest FOR EVERYBODY.
And if we're talking Leviticus (using King James, because it uses the translation "abomination");
Eating animals you sacrificed is an abomination (but animal sacrifice is normal and good); Leviticus 7:18
Lobster's an abomination; Leviticus 11:10
Anything that flies and goes about on all fours are abominations; Leviticus 11:20, 23
Anything that "creeps" (usually snakes and insects); Leviticus 11:41
And that's just if we want to pick on the specific word "abomination". Literally, according to the only book that uses that phrase in reference to homosexuality, it's equally bad to eat lobster or snake, but you should be performing your regular animal sacrifices like a good Levite.
Actually, it doesn't. The KJV is exceedingly poorly translated, and the original Hebrew more accurately comes out as "lechery" rather than anything about specific sexual orientations. The KJV had a lot of deliberate bias put into it based on what King James personally loathed; we have full evidence of this, including but not limited to the infamous "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live", which was pretty egregiously mistranslated since "witches" didn't exist in the Middle East when those works were written.And how is Sodom and Gomorrah as an example hilarious? Because you said that the Bible says nothing about homosexuality, yet the story of Sodom and Gomorrah does indeed talk about it?

Let's change this around, shall we?
You'd like to get married to your grand ol' high school sweetheart. Everyone else, however, is religiously gay. They don't believe in "straight" marriage. Don't worry, you can get your "civil union." I wonder how'll she'll feel about it though, she'll never be Mrs. Chadwix.
I mean you just fill out some forms, and it's kind of the same though.
Endus, I'm glad you're willing to focus on specific Biblical claims, because it's a useful thing for someone to do. I'm just not able to bring myself to argue about the Bible with anymore seriousness than I'd argue about the events chronicled in the Harry Potter tales.
Your words is you do not hate homosexual.
Your actions deem that homosexuals should not have the same rights.
The action is what causes the change or lack thereof, your words mean nothing.
Nor is this a new thing. Marriage has always been a fundamentally legal construct, not a religious one.
Idk why it's even something to pretend is preventable.
That is what's wonderful about what's going on.
It's going to happen. We all are going to see it.
It does not even have to happen this soon, but it will. Deal with it.
