Yet in this post, you merely accuse me of some silly stuff (first paragraph) and then don't back up. You didn't critique what I said. You didn't say it was made up lies. Do you think gay people don't have straight friends and family members who know them?<quoted text>
Wow. Speachless. You post reveals you to be nothing more than a Liberal Media headline-grabbing sternographer.
With the immense political clout the gay movement has, they could easily gleam the same set of rights/protections that marriage affords. But that's not what this is about. Getting bestowed marriage is the most important rung on the ladder toward the homosexualized totalitarian utopia gay activists have been pushing so aggressively for.
It sets a formidable, sanctifying precedent - an official Govt. reckognition that gays are equal to straights in every way.
But they're not equal in every way!!
This tiny demographic (3.5%) is DRASTICALLY over-represented in almost every S.T.D., including over half of the total H.I.V. infections in America and over 60% of siphilis cases. They commit suicide at a rate of 6 X higher than straights. Gay men studied have rampant promiscuity. Lesbians have higher rates of domestic violence than straights, have higher breast cancer rates, higher rates of drug and alcohol abuse, and significantly lower life expectancy. These findings have been confirmed time, and time again for decades. This IS the gay lifestyle. The media's image of perenially-committed, celibate, responsible homebodies who want the same things out of life as everyone else is a sham, a lie. A sophisticated falsehood, spun and woven for public relations, nothing more.
This is an extremely unhealthy lifestyle to bestow the honor of a sacred, fundamental societal construct in place since the Beginning of Civilization.
Govt involvement in marriage was deemed necessary to secure the future of the population by promoting responsible procreation and child rearing. Homosexuals cannot procreate!
the status of gay marriage, for gay activists, is the door the the promised land, an insulated realm where they get unbridled power in the Culture to punish straight America for the centuries of stigmatazation and condemnation of this lifestyle. This is the sole reason behind the push for gay marriage.
Someone YOU love is gay or lesbian. You just don't know it.
