All the silly apartheid language aside (dude, that is the DUMBEST argument I've heard from a relatively intelligent person on this topic..you're seriously worried about prison rape being made worse by same sex marriage...are you shitting me???)...<quoted text>same sex marriage won't just harm homosexuals. Gays are already allowed to marry under current laws; they always have and they still can today. There is no orientation test for a marriage license.
Same sex marriage supporters can't be honest about their policy because calling it gender apartheid marriage just won't win.
Here is where you really lost me very early on in this debate. You keep saying that gays are allowed to get married under current laws. If by that statement you mean that they are allowed to get married to people of the opposite sex then sure, they can. If by that statement you mean they can marry people of their own, preferred gender then NO THEY CANNOT. I think this, along with the ridiculous patented Prison Rape™ argument are monumentally insane. The part about gays being allowed to marry under current law is just a lie. The part about prison rape is a red herring.
What I find most offensive about your posts is that you occasionally claim to be ok with gays. I find that very hard to accept, given your stance on this issue. It smacks of "Heck, some of my best friends are black...I just don't want them mixing with whites." It's the same damn thing when you break it down.
So you are not a troll. You honestly believe your argument is a good one? Ok, dude, whatever floats your boat.
But we're well over 50% in favor at this point. And no sign of that trend changing. So you better just get used to the idea. These desperate state mandates "defining" marriage as being man/woman are basically the last gasps of the anti-gay marriage movement. They will eventually be found not in keeping with the Constitution.
Good night, and peace. I said what I wanted to say and I'll do my very best not to continue this argument. The horse is done dead.
For anyone who is on the fence just think about whether or not you would want someone else to decide if YOU could get married to the one you love.
