It doesn't. Marraige doesn't mean much anymore, anyway. Marraige isn't very popular these days and half of all marraiges end in divorce.
So why did you claim it did affect them, in the post I replied to before this one?

My marriage means a great deal to me, Ink - I just don't see how the marriage of any two OTHER consenting adults could diminish that, whether the other couple is of mixed race, or the same sex, or anything else, as long as they're consenting adults.

Marriage, like pregnancy, is personal. But if I benefit from marriage, and it's legal for me to marry whom I choose, why should same-sex couples be denied those benefits and that legality?

I really don't understand the problem people have with it. To my mind, protesting against 'gay marriage' would be like protesting against the guy behind me in line at Subway, because he ordered a different sandwich than I did.

Last I heard people have a right to speak. Do you want to take that away? How do any of these links show where religion had any influence on any law?
As if congress has nothing better to do except shoot down the religiously inspired, anti gay garbage some states have been pushing for. Your continued pretend ignorance is just as pathetic as those discriminatory bills and ideas.

You would have to remind me where I said that. I don't think I did.

I expect it will be legal everywhere eventually. Then gays will have the legality and benefits.

Do you think gay marriage should be illegal, and if so, why should it be illegal?
I'm going to imitate Bitner here and say that my personal opinion isn't important.

My choice would be for the government to get out of the marraige business anyway. I think the government should only be able to offer civil unions to both gays and straights.

If I may cut in here...because the RCC is, in some fashion, fighting to make abortion illegal, is it not? And in that way imposing the beliefs of the institution and it's members on all of society. You, or any member of the RCC, are not required by law to get an abortion, but if (hypothetically) the RCC were able to influence lawmakers and get abortion made illegal it would then have imposed its will on all people including non-Catholics.
The most the RCC should be doing is making it clear to Catholics that they should not choose to get an abortion because the Catholic beliefs are that to do so is a sin according to the wishes of the Catholic version of God.
The RCC should not at all be trying to impose those beliefs in any way on non-Catholics, especially through laws that pertain to all citizens.
The RCC does not have a body in congress where all laws are created.

Again, you would have to show me where the Church has changed LAW and eliminated abortion.

But if Sheldon Cooper was in front of you and wanted a history of all the ingredients of the sandwich that he ordered, would you protest?

I expect so too. All citizens of marriageable age, should have the right to marry, regardless of which gender to whom they'd like to plight their troth.

It's about damn time.

And with as many as they like.
Marraige should also be available to and include brothers and sisters, moms and sons and daughters, dads and daughters and sons. gramps and his whole brood of granddaughters.

Who really cares what someone else does?

You might just get your wish.

Apparently the OK legislature has taken the fable of the 'Dog in the Manger' to heart, just like you have.

There's a difference between rudeness...even suggesting a person getting laid might help them relax...and the rape-minded vulgarity in question. And this is from someone.she.finds "disgusting."

The conservatives are trying to drive home the idea that the gays screwed it up for everybody.

I'm sure you're in agreement.

It won't pass, btw...any more than the bill about requiring men to have treadmill tests and succumb to a trans-penile exam before obtaining a scrip for Viagra did.
It's a pretty stupid and expensive way to make a point though, and if that's the platform Oklahoma 'conservatives' want to stand on, so be it.
They'll pay for it in the mid-terms, and OK can go back to being the progressive libertarian capitalist State it was in the '20s thru the '70s, rather than the regressive neo-con theocracy it's been turning into for the last 3 decades.
