Recently, I watched a debate between Dan Savage, a popular blogger and gay activist,
Do you mean to say “a nationally syndicated columnist?”
and Brian Brown, the president of
the hate group,
the National Organization for Marriage. One prominent opinion during the debate was that Savage stated he would not support polygamous marriages because they are harmful to society; in fact, he stated he doesn’t know of a homosexual who would support polygamous marriages.
OK, so the way you’re framing this, they asked two people against polygamous marriage to debate it. That sounds like a really boring debate. Oh, unless this was a debate about gay marriage and Savage was tricked into responding to a slippery-slope fallacy that he shouldn’t have been made responsible for by the bully from that hate group he was talking with.
I find it interesting that the Conservatives conjecture
And it is pure conjecture
homosexual marriage is detrimental to society, but homosexuals conjecture polygamous marriages will be detrimental too. this is an issue of not having an ultimate meaning of marriage.
Bullshit. First off, like I said, the gay marriage issue has nothing to do with polygamy. You clearly have this law-and-order view of the world so I guess I have to disabuse you of the notion that people need to be controlled, but the reason gay people want to be able to marry legally is so they can receive the same benefits under the law. That means, hospital visitation rights, non-discrimination, tax benefits, adoption privileges, etc. The law protects people, it doesn’t control them. That’s why children can’t marry in most places, because they can’t provide sound consent. Homosexual adults can provide sound consent and the law doesn’t need to protect them, simple as that. People in group weddings are often coerced either by culty/religious mumbo-jumbo or some svengali. The government needs to protect against people like that.
If Americans allow homosexuals to marry, they will not be the final group to protest for marital rights.
So? People protest for/against stuff everyday, who gives a shit?
There was a time when people thought interracial marriages was the final group to fight for their marital rights, but look how they were wrong.
Do you know how shitty this thing you said was? It was so shitty I bolded it so people who read this would feel extra compelled to shame the fuck out of you and your bigotry.
And, if homosexuals believe they can have their marital rights, and deny polygamous marriage their rights then they are enacting the same bigot treatment as Conservatives act on them.
No, one group meets the requirement of needing government intervention and the other doesn’t. Simple as that.
Conservatives view marriage equality between a man and a woman more valuable than homosexual marriage because Conservative marriage can procreate.
Homosexuals view their marriage more valuable than polygamous marriage because heterosexual men will become greedy with wives, and eventually finding a mate for American men will become as difficult as it is in China.
But, as Liberals move from fighting for gay marriage to a more politically correct term, marriage equality,
It’s not politically correct, it’s just correct.
they fail to realize that there can be no such thing as marriage equality because every group cannot define marriage to fit their personal pleasures.
So now you’re engaging in the slippery-slope fallacy.
Professional sports; for example: professional sports are highly valued because it requires specific skills to play professionally. If Americans play professional sports by their personal views of what skills it takes to play professionally, the value of professional sports will greatly decrease.
Oh my, this analogy is just….you are a very, very stupid person. Like, you should really be embarrassed that you wrote something like this. If I were you I would take this as an opportunity to delete my entire internet presence, stop discussing issues and look into getting off the grid because you’re so embarrassingly out of step with civilized society that you actually wrote the above paragraph.
If Americans grant marriage equality for all groups, each group will value and devalue certain meanings of marriage. Heterosexual marriage will be the highest valued because it has the longest practice and it is valued by many religious moral standards then there is homosexual marriage, polygamous marriage, bestiality marriage, and so on.
Can you believe the sales on bestiality marriage these days!? They must be in season!
Don’t use lawyer terms when you can barely fucking read, dipshit.
marriage should be defined between one man and one woman.
Disagree, plus fuck your face.
Yes, marriage and religion have many issues within itself
oh, within itself, you say? How interesting! lol.
such as how some kings in the Bible had hundreds of wives, and the divorce rate amongst Christians today, but Liberals who use these arguments has a misinterpretation.
I can has misinterpretation?
Ancient polygamy and current divorce rates amongst Christians are not absolute depictions of how God defines marriage,
How what defines marriage? I don’t know what you’re talking about, you haven’t introduced me to your make believe friend and his rules yet.
but a recording of cultural customs and evidence of imperfections.
Alright so my cultural custom is the one that is used in this place called America and it’s about sound consent.
If we remove the errors of cultural records in the Bible and study God’s meaning of the Bible
You mean if we take out the mistakes in the Bible (according to you) and reinsert what God meant (also according to you)…
then we will learn that the Bible is perfect
because having fixed it so that it says what you want, it now says what you and is, THEREFORE, (lol) puuuuuuurrrrrrfect!
for defining marriage, and anything contrary to that meaning is the beginning of destroying marriage for all.
I bet your attitude about love and acceptance has pretty much destroyed any possibility of marriage for you!
