I don’t know where this will go. I suspect it will be moved even though I’m sure there must be an answer to it.
I seriously want to know why gays insist on marriage and are not content with civil unions? If the term “content with” sounds as if it’s less then marriage or as if I’m saying “Take what you can get, be happy, and shut up.” That is not my intent.
Do civil unions address all of the rights issues that are the basis for wanting marriage? Or not? Please explain your answer and don’t just say “Yes” or “No”.
END OF QUESTION. WHAT FOLLOWS ARE JUST MY OPINIONS AND OBSERVATIONS AND NOT PART OF THE QUESTION.***********
They call us “breeders” and things like that. Whatever. If some find hetero’s so despicable why do they want to be “like us”? Again, not a term meant to be derisive, just an observation from personal experience.
My personal opinion is that if they are allowed to get married then they can say “Well now you can’t call us ‘sinners’ because now we’re married and can have sex.” Seriously, this is what I believe. And I say this because if every other issue is resolved and there is no longer any rights that are denied, without marriage, then why would it matter still? Don’t misunderstand me. I’m fine with gay marriage. If you want to lose half your stuff to someone then go for it. I’m also okay if you want to marry a tree too. I’m most certainly against any marriage that violates another persons rights or a child being involved. I absolutely reject any pedophile being able to marry the child of his (or hers) choice.
As to the argument that gay marriage will destroy the fabric of our society, I also reject that. Given the current divorce rate I’d say hetero’s haven’t exactly lived up to the standard they so adamantly demand homosexuals adhere to. And to all of the divorced Christians that marry 2 and 3 times (and more) and shudder at the thought of gay marriage just remember : According to the Bible YOU ARE AN ADULTERER (which is the sin that homosexuals are accused of committing if they participate in sexual acts).
