Definitely not, you're absolutely right.

Males do not represent two discrete populations, heterosexual and homosexual. The world is not to be divided into sheep and goats. It is a fundamental of taxonomy that nature rarely deals with discrete categories. . . . The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects, (p 639).

While emphasizing the continuity of the gradations between exclusively heterosexual and exclusively homosexual histories, it has seemed desirable to develop some sort of classification which could be based on the relative amounts of heterosexual and homosexual experience or response in each history. . . . An individual may be assigned a position on this scale, for each period in his life. . . . A seven-point scale comes nearer to showing the many gradations that actually exist, (pp. 639, 656)

This NAMBLA arguement has absolutly nothing to do with SSMs. NAMBLA does not involve marriage. The only thing they have in common whatsoever is homosexuality.

It also makes no sense for marijuana to be illegal, but it is.

The government isn't about doing what's right.
It's about banning anything they consider unsavory.

Lets look back at the quote, shall we?

"In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America."

I stated that we had 3 major religions, each saying homosexuality is a sin.

But perhaps I wasn't making myself clear enough.

3 religions + same idea = homosexuality is wrong.

Now tell me how their ideas are 'imposed' on the entire country when 80%+ follow it. Tell me how it's imposed when 80%+ AGREE with it. Tell me how it's imposed when 100% of the people in this country are allowed to choose to follow what they want.


I dont care what your pont was. Seriously, I dont, because I said you missed the point of that statemnet. I couldnt care less how much you care about what th religions think is wrong, because that wasnt the irony of the statement, moron.

Jesus christ, you make everything and everyone you are associated with look bad. Just quit being so ugly and so damn retarded, will you?

(no, because that would constitute you killing yourself, or completely changing)

Homosexuals shouldn't be allowed to get married, because that is a holy sacrament to be shared between a man and a woman. But I'm in favor of allowing civil unions through the state between them.

When marraige is done by the church, you can either listen to the rules or find a new religion.

So what if its seperate but equal, these are totally different issues. I'm saying they can have every right that married couples have, but cannot be married in a church.

How about you let a Church decide their own rules rather than impose your own beliefs on them? What if a Church wants to allow same-sex marriages?

No one else here has even mentioned Church marriages; we are debating a legal marriages—that is, when a judge stamps a big, red M onto a couple's names and when the gov't grants them many new privelages, tax breaks, and rights.

By the way, there are over 1000 rights that married couples recieve and those joined by a civil union do not receive. And even if the gov't were to confer completely equal rights as a result of the two establishments, then—as Clark mentioned—that's called, "Seperate but equal."

Which is never truly equal.

Nobody at all is suggesting that any church should be forced to marry anybody they choose not to.  The issue is the GOVERNMENT and LEGAL concept of marriage, which is distinct from church marriage.

Right now churches can marry men to chickens, while refusing to marry whites to blacks, and that is ok.  It's when the legal effects come up that we have an issue.

Marriages should fall under the jurisdiction of the church. They are performed in a church via a sect or religion.

A catholic church should not have to perform a homosexual marriage.

But, if a homosexual couple wants to be married in the eyes of the law, they should be alowed to do so.

Legaly speaking they should have every right to do so, if you look at the presidences, we have..

Roe V. Wade( wich established a right to privacy)
Equal protection clause in the constitution.

Religious groups should not be able to legislate beleifs, their beliefs have nothing to do with law. Our constitution is set up in such a way that is should legaly alow homosexual marriages, its right there in black and white.

Thats just the way it, if these groups want homosexual not to be able to marry, well then they should get a constitutional amendment to that effect.
