Answer it then

How will straight marriages be compromised by the allowance of gay marriages?

The only ones bringing it up are the liberal media, trying to push republicans into a corner.... Republicans rarely bring it up, they just respond and often sound stupid in doing so.... They'd be better off not saying anything and quit playing the liberal game

Even good things like allowing women to vote and the civil rights movement drastically changed society. Why do you think something as radical as gay marriage wouldn't?

Talk about a straw man if I've ever heard one

It would change society...for the better. Just like those other things did.

I dont think you understand what a straw man is. Those were just flat out lies and they knew they were lies when they said them.

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


I'm on my phone and its hard for a Luddite like myself to quote and respond to specific posts so I'll just try to make an inclusive list of responses.

1. While I don't like some of the gay rights' movements tactics at times, the only way to achieve this kind of change is through some degree of activism, including protests.

2. It is fair to say that Republicans have pushed the issue to the fore and have used it for larger political purposes at times (placing "traditional marriage" proposals on the ballot n certain states to coincide with close elections and bring out the Christian conservatives).

3. Powerman is a shite stirrer but I've had drinks with him and that makes him okay (plus he pushes interesting buttons).

4. Actually the SCOTUS doesn't have to create a new suspect class. They can simply find there is "no rational basis" to support statutes that discriminate between homosexual and heterosexual unions.


4. I have yet to see how gay couples getting married threatens my marriage (or anyone else's).

5. I think some posters on this board argue against it based on their reflexive opposition to "libs" or "progressives".

Flat out lies that have absolutely NOTHING to do with this topic

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


You know what's funny?

I have gay friends who feel exactly this way.

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

I've been connected to the NYT since Monday. The A Section has devoted an average of 18 pages to promoting gay marriage from Mon - Friday. That's almost 100 pages of newsprint. I'd say that's obsession.

I know of a few gay people that aren't flaming at all and never even talk about the stuff.

So the Roman empire collapsed because they let gay people get married?

Talk about a straw man if I've ever heard one
Yet when confronted with scenarios dealing exactly with what you claim is an "impossible" outcome, you deny, deflect and ignore.

Strawman?
Prescience has nothing to do with straw.
Predictability is not something to deny, deflect and ignore.
