Hmm. Would you call it discrimination to not allow an epileptic to fly a commercial airliner? All I'm interested in is perspective, not litmus test politics.
An epileptic airline pilot would be an obvious danger to humanity.

How could you say the same for a legally married gay couple?

So...you came here to intimidate?
I came here to procrastinate. I know I am wasting my time trying to explain how reality works to people like you, but to be honest, I don't write for you. I write for others and use you as a foil. The things is, people without religious prejudice aren't going to ask such uninformed questions. So the forums need people like you, with all your biases and strange beliefs to drive conversations.
I used to post links to scientific articles to back up everything I write. Time after time they just get ignored - people with committed belief systems are immune to learning. You guys just ignore the science. So why bother posting the links?
Cheers.
OK, you're not here to intimidate.

What's so "hahaha" funny?

Just answer the question. Don't set up your choreography first.

Then why do you insist on a litmus test for two people to get married?

You may not see it but you are being very hypocritical.

anonymous, even if, no change that, when homosexual marriage is legally recognized in your state no one will force you to marry a "homo". So you can quit worrying.
Why are you so opposed to the concept?
First, I don't like the trivialization of real liberalism, and I don't like the Democratic party litmus test.

Second, you ask "Why are you so opposed to the concept?" What was that concept? Allowing other to engage in gay marriage, or your own sub-conscious (or conscious)effort to dominate the discussion with an invasion of my personal space?

Freudian slip or is that cigar just a cigar? Hmmmm..... hmmmmmm!

I already said, remove all financial considerations from the act of marriage, and get government out of the business of marriage. Problem solved.

anonymous, this is a public forum. You have no "personal space" here. And why do you think this is a Democratic party litmus test? When this motion failed in California it had more to do with the Democrats than the Republicans. The black and latino population voted strongly against it. In my state it passed largely because they aimed most of their advertisements towards Republicans. This is not a party issue.

Once government has a power it practically never gives it up freely. Live in the real world, government is not going to get out of the marriage business. So why shouldn't gay people have the same rights in regard to their spouse as straight people?

You just said the magic word. "legally"

Nothing about sexual preference should be part of law. Been there already. Whether it's gay sex, bigamy or animal sex, there's no legal "right" that guarantees government protection. The reasons why one may be illegal and another is not is not based on any such right or official government endorsement.

When you say "animal sex" are you talking about sex between humans and animals, sex between animal and animal or really awesome sex?

Because this is a public forum, I can call it a litmus test and that is what it is. However, you are confirming my observations that minorities don't tend to support gay marriage. It's because the topic trivializes real rights issues.

But don't believe me. Just don't ask questions about litmus tests if you're just acting out your choreography and the point couldn't be made more clearly yet never get through to you.

No, but if you're referring to the kids who ride the short bus to special ed classes, I did grow up with one. Do you think that's funny?

Sexual attraction is driven by genetics, it's connected to the reproduction system a species utilizes to assist in genetic diversity. Are you saying that the birds which choose based on plumage are just choosing based entirely on cosmetic traits as well? Same thing.
I haven't read the articles yet, but I came across some research indicating that there may be an epigenetic component to homosexuality. Either way there is a strong biological origin for sexual attraction and it isn't a medical condition as some would have us believe. It sounds like you are up on this, but sometimes I write in the extra stuff for other readers.

You screwed up and you ducked. Bad form and a loss right off the start.

How does the quest for gay rights trivialize anyone else' quest? Gay people have rights too, even though you may not think so. When idiots say idiotic things I tend to try to see if they can defend them, they practically never can. Thanks for showing that you cannot defend your idiotic claims.
