First of all, for those of you with reading comprehension issues, I'll repeat this slowly: I...am...not...a...lib...er... al.<quoted text>
Maybe because liberals shack up, have kids and move on, without bothering to marry, is that moral? Why do you argue so vehemently for gay marriage rights when 70% of your young mothers are single, is that moral? Why do you promote a lifestyle that kills thousands of men, women and children from HIV/AIDS every year, is that moral? Why do you mandate lower emissions standards that leads directly to more traffic deaths, is that moral? Why are we buying foreign oil and paying $4 or $5 bucks a gallon for gas when we could be supplying the world with petroleum products and paying $1.50 a gallon, is that moral? Why are the Obama's boogieing down while there's 100 million working age Americans out of work, is that moral?
You are like a convicted murderer arguing against victims rights.
However I stand up for those being scapegoated by simpletons who refuse to see their own part in things.
So don't call things "my" unmarried mothers and "my" lower emissions standards. I live in Florida. We don't even take our card for inspection, and I like it that way.
Yes, I would consider shacking up and having kids immoral. I wouldn't pass laws against it.
I argue vehemently for gay marriage rights because I'm gay and married and it has a very real, practical application to my life. My husband has been type 1 diabetic since he was ten years old. We are both 41. Hospital issues are a matter of when, not if. And I don't have to worry about going to jail because some right-wing doctor tries to keep me out of a room and I punch him in the face. I don't need to worry about his delinquent brother trying to take my home, should I survive him, or my money-hungry sister doing the same should he survive me. Oh, and also because I believed the bill of goods I was sold as a kid about America being free and equal.
Now, if you are really concerned about HIV (which I doubt) then the quickest, smartest thing you could do is to support same sex marriage, which naturally promotes monogamy like any other marriage, and reduces the spread of all STD's. Otherwise, you're a hypocrite who is simply acting on prejudice, not concern for HIV.
Finally, there is no such thing as "promoting a lifestyle" when it comes to being gay. You either are, or you aren't. You can't decide to become it, no matter how good the marketing campaign. Just like gay people can't choose to be straight, straight people can't choose to be gay. Nobody knows that better than gay people, so the last thing we would do is "promote a lifestyle." Stupid.
