Bullshit. It is unacceptable, because it means that same-sex marriages are second-class. Why do you hold on so fiercely to that word? Do you realize that the state gives marriage licenses, not the church? You and your church, if you belong to one, can freely decide not to recognize same-sex marriages. Those who want to get married don’t have such freedom.
This is the most laughable line of bullshit I’ve seen here in a long time. Your “solution” sounds exactly like “seperate but equal”. I don’t know where you stand on that issue, but if you believe that black kids can go to underfunded schools seperate from the white kids and still be equal, the Supreme Court respectfully disagrees.
It’s hilarious, too, that The Gays are now a conspiracy trying to use marriage to “get something else”, but you can’t quite figure out what it is. Maybe that’s becuase there is no “something else”, and there can be no “something else”. What possible devious advantage could people marrying others of the same sex gain through doing so? Use your wildest fancy to come up with some way that gay marriage can be parlayed into destructive power. I’d love to hear it.
Either you’re being unintentionally wooshed or you’re incredibly stubborn. Whether they use the word “inferior” or the phrase “imaginary purple elephant” doesn’t matter; the point is that the argument that people of the same sex can’t marry and take all of the benefits, including social status, tax benefits, legal rights, and the name of marriage–that argument is inherently based on the belief that one group’s relationship is inferior to another. There’s no other way to spin it. Either gay relationships are inferior and shouldn’t hold legal water, or they’re the same and should.
