Whining? You must have me confused with someone else. But, if we are to allow for SSM, then we must also allow for poly and incest, as it is only right. Change the rules for some, then we must change for all. Anything else would be elitist. It would be discriminatory. Tantamount to saying that Mexican illegals can be Americans, but not Honduran illegals. I'm sure that you understand that.
I agree

I am opposed to you BIG government types, the ones that want to get into our personal lives and tell us who we can marry and who we cant.
You cannot be serious? LOL Me? Big government type? You're having a laugh, now, mate. You're the ones using the government to legislate society, not me. You're the ones asking the government to step in and "protect" the SSM crowd, not me. Please, get back onto the reality train.

Well, I think there are several things that folks might be afraid of.
1.) I keep hearing evangelicals talk about how God is going to rain down His judgment on our country if we continue to give in to the "gay agenda. So, I'm sure that there are people out there who are afraid of that.
2.) I've certainly heard people talk about how gay people want to indoctrinate their children--turn them gay. So, I'm sure that's also a source of fear.
3.) There's the fear of change; the fear of doing something different.
4.) Some people seem to think that same-sex marriage will impact the family. They believe that it will somehow sully the "sanctity of marriage".
5.) Regardless of what most educated people know about HIV/AIDS, there is still the fear catching the disease through associating with gay people.
6.) And I've brought up the fear that I believe some "straight" men have when it comes to homosexuality. Some self-loathing, closeted gay men who live a heterosexual lifestyle fear being outed. They fear having to face their own inner demons.
7.) I think some insecure straight people fear being around gays. They fear that a gay person is going to "hit on" them. They have this idea that gay people think of everybody as a potential sexual conquest.(As an aside, what I always find funny is that it's the most unattractive guys who are afraid that some gay man is going to make a pass at them. What's up with that?)
That's 7 fears that I can come up with right off the bat. Maybe you can think of others.
When I was a young 18 year old sailor, 160 lbs. of twisted steel and sex appeal and on liberty in San Francisco in the 60's, I was mercilessly hit upon. Didn't bother me, flattering really. Except when at the urinals in the bus station! Geez! I got stage fright for chrissakes. Had to wait until I got on the bus.

Now where have I heard that before? History books? Yep.... it's the same ol' bitter whine....
You are SO afraid of change..... why does it scare you so much? If you can't change your mind, are you sure you still have one?
I'm no more afraid of change, or your types, than you are, of the dog shyte on the sidewalk. Are you afraid of the poo? Does it make you shriek? Of course not. you merely notice it, with disdain, and avoid stepping in it. No phobia, correct?

Gay twirl Bs.
Many transgendered function just fine without adjustment.
Homosexuality is a defective failure of mating behavior, not only exposed by the failure to mutually procreate, but also by the violent violation of sexual design.
Unlike a transgendered, you are attempting to impose 'surgery' on society to fix your defect. An imposter relationship imposed on marriage, and a pretend duplicated half of parenting at the expense of children.
So much for no negative impact...
Smirk.
Do you honestly believe 1/10th of the bullshit you say on here?

I mean seriously...
--"...defective failure of mating behavior"
--"...violent violation of sexual design"
--"...impose 'surgery' on society"
--"...pretend duplicated half of parenting..."

Do you see anyone else on this thread supporting this crap? At least most of the others on here who disagree with gay marriage have sense enough to know that you make this stuff up as you go.

When somebody comes up behind you and nails you in the ass, THEN you can talk about it being a "violent violation of sexual design".

Until that happens, don't knock it till you've tried it. Several million gay AND straight people can't be wrong.

1.) "Some things should just be left as they were."
Why is that? We didn't leave slavery as it was. We didn't leave gender inequality as it was. Our economy has changed dramatically over the past couple of centuries.
Why is that "some things" should be left as they were, but "other things" are game for being changed?
2.) "...but when we start to change too many of the ingredients in a 'marriage', it's not that, anymore."
How does one change impact marriage? Seriously... Do you think heterosexual couples will be impacted by same-sex marriage? Do you think families will change?
I don't see the logic. Maybe I'm missing something.
I believe that as we change more and more, we are going in the wrong directions. Do you believe that our economy has gotten better, over time? I doubt that you do. Not all change is not necessarily right.

There's always one poster who really sticks in your craw right? I hear you.

is your life as a heterosexual defined by your sexual behavior? no, it's defined by your character. Why can't you seem to think beyond which pegs are going into which holes? pretty shallow, IMHO.
I think that your gyros are gimballed. My life as a heterosexual is defined by my sexuality. My life as a human being is defined by character. They're different. Do try to keep up.

Welcome to the United States, you are confusing it with ancient Athens that was a pure democracy, we are also a republic
Perhaps you should go to elementary school, or better go to an immigration center that has classes on citizenship and learn just a little bit about your new country here before making more foolish posts.
In this country, a majority cannot decide to remove rights from a minority over bias, and when ther is no harm to the majority. This is a very different land than ancient athens.
I hope you enjoy your stay and decide to actually become a citicezn of our great nation.
You're mixed up, now, We are not removing pre-existing rights, we are denying the granting of said rights to a non-qualified group that seeks to gain recognition through forced legislation and through the rending of Constitutional processes. Different. you guys seem to enjoy skewing the issue, so as to make your side seem righteous and honorable, whilst you call in the government to step on the rest of us, and then claim that it is our side who is invoking the "Big Government" clause that your side is actually ushering in. And, you lie (demonstrably) about the support base in this country, so as to fool some of us into changing our minds. The whole thing is hogwash.

I cannot speak for Mr Hudson but if you asked me that question I would reply because poly marriage deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage.
They are both marriage. Your favorite one is not more worthy than anyone else's favorite one. They are both marriage. Equal. It's a simple concept really.
If your response is going to be whining and stomping your feetsies that I am off topic, I will re-post your last 10 posts for comparison.
But, you just did, and right smartly, too. Thank you.

Oh alright. The VC overran the camp. Jizzy (just the facts) was cowering in one of the hootches. He was scared as hell but he had a plan! He got naked, painted his dick purple with iodine from the first aid kit and ran out among them, surrendering. They laughed and took turns sodomizing him and until they were all spent. The End.
Re-posted for my amusement.
And mine, too.

I'll tell you where all of the Chongo typos come from, its cell phone internet, it can't afford a real computer, it has to use the phone, with the spell checker and predetermined words. And it doesn't check all the words, it just goes with the flow...
