Face it Cad, you're discriminating against a segment of the population based on your moralistic and religious views. Discrimination under the law is unconstitutional. It's only a matter of time until all persons have equal rights and protections under the law. If we only did things the same way we've always done them, we'd never grow and prosper as a society. It's exactly this kind of closed-minded thinking that prevented women from voting and blacks from having equal rights. I suppose you'd like to knock society back a good 50 or so years? Gimme a break.Originally posted by: CADkindaGUY
Ask the question right. You are trying to redefine marriage. Marriage has ALWAYS been between a man and a woman - PERIOD. So it would be a "special" right. If your relationship doesn't qualify to be considered for marriage(ie man and woman) then that is your choice. What you are asking is to redefine what marriage is and always has been. You call it ridiculous - I call it morallity. EVERYONE has the same RIGHT to marry a person of the opposite sex if they choose - so they have just as many rights as I do in the marriage department.
Anyway I'm sick of trying to debate this issue with people who won't tolerate morality and religious views. Have fun in life - I have no wish to discuss this further because until you understand Christianity and the teachings of God you will continue to bash those who do.
Again, I seriously hope that someone with more patience than I will someday show each of you the way.
