What is the "conservative" obsession with gay marriage?



Why is it really that big of an issue to you if gay people want to get married?

Doesn't change your life one bit.

Wouldn't that definition make you a big government liberal for wanting to force your morality on others?

You're fricking attention whoring with this thread. You know the answers you're going to get and just feel like flaming.

I'll tell you this, I don't give two fricks about queers getting married, but I can't stand the in your face attitude that has pervaded the media these past few weeks. So for those who are religious, I understand their aggravation, even if I don't agree with them wanting to prevent civil unions.

I've been completely disconnected from the media the last few weeks but I'll take your word on it.

few weeks? try like 5-10 years

i don't mind normal gay people at all, but i cannot stand (1) flamers and (2) the people who accuse you of being an ignorant bigot b/c you don't agree with every little thing they say on the entire scope of the issue

Because it will further destabilize the institution upon which every single successful civilization has ever been based?

you can't call it "marriage" because its a religious term and in every religion that uses it, homosexuality is an abomination. I don't care if they call it a civil union and get it done at the courthouse. Separation of church and state seems to only apply when libs want to keep religion out of something. Apparently, it doesn't apply when they want to get into something.

Happy now?

How will it "destabilize" straight marriages? Are more people going to get divorced when gays are allowed to be married?

Do you have some evidence of divorce rates going up in places with gay marriage?

This is more what I mean, but Powerman knows he is just beating a dead horse with this thread. I have no idea why he is doing it, other than he has some need to feel more enlightened than other posters.

I've got this girl I went to high school with who's father is gay and she is militant as can be about gays / marriage, etc. and anyone who voices an opposing view she gets into mf'ing them and telling them how stupid they are, on and on. I argue that gays shouldn't be married just because I hate how in your face she is about the whole thing.

And, yes, it's been years with the pressing for gay civil unions, but it has been just unbearable the past few weeks. They need to turn the flame off.

Yet people enter into non religious based marriage contracts all the time and no one opposes that.

Religion isn't a requirement for marriage.

So should we ban marriages done at a courthouse? Can atheists really be "married?"

Don't feed the troll. Straight people aren't going to stop having sex. Babies will still be born. Society will move on.

I can't wait for five years from now when this stupidity on part of those who wish to keep gays from marrying quit worrying and homos in sitcoms and movies will stop being over represented by a media that has their darling cause for the moment.

So your argument against gay marriage is based on some annoying girl that has a gay dad? Makes sense I guess.

If you watch HGTV you would think that 40% of the population was gay

re: What is the "conservative" obsession with gay marriage?


well i personally hate the way they've gone about this "war"

but, to get back to your OP, the only way they can truly achieve equality is via more government, and i'm 100% opposed to that

Is it really that much more government for them to say that gays can get married?

That's like saying allowing interracial marriages required "more government"
