The problem is that, it is not what the gay agenda wants....They want to force every institution, to consider gay marriages on par with heterosexual ones, and force religious institutions to give them equal weighting, and they will not stop until they get it.
You give them an inch, and they’ll take a mile.
That is CLEARLY true... Even in states where they have been granted EVERY other benefit with a Civil Union, they are not happy... What they want is, for their bizarre behavior to be consider "normal" and "equal"... They crave something that is not reality, and never will be.
The government, bolstered by voter results in several lefty states, have clearly demonstrated why the government needs to get out of the marriage business and be content with writing laws defining civil unions, domestic partnerships or whatever the hell else they wish to call it.
Leave marriage to the churches and synagogues alone to define.
If a worker demonstrates gross incompetence in a necessary skill-set and no inclination to improve but, indeed, a heightened stubbornness to cling to said incompetence, you assign them to a different line of work or get rid of them completely. So it should be with our government's involvement in marriage.
They are a tiny per cent of the voting population. Why does anyone listen to them?
“The problem is that, it is not what the gay agenda wants....They want to force every institution, to consider gay marriages on par with heterosexual ones, and force religious institutions to give them equal weighting, and they will not stop until they get it.”
The whole point of the gay marriage fight is to punish folks who wont buy into it with the power of the state. They will fight tooth and nail to be able to punish and keep punishing those who will never buy into whatever impossibility the state decides to call marriage at the time.
I think a big reason so many accept impossibilities like gay marriage is because many have been conditioned to think the state defines marriage. It comes in little pieces of paper with strictures and benefits, and can be broken and resumed between any parties if the state gives its permission.
Often you will read about some faith that believes gay marriage is possible but wont recognize their own members gay marriages until the state they are in also agrees. Which might be more insane than actually buying into gay marriage in the first place.
But listen to them cry when we say we want heterosexual everything. Bunch of whiney wusses.
Well maybe Rand Paul is going against the old man, who came out for sodomite marriage during the debates, and also voted to lift DADT and codify sodomy in the US Armed Forces.
Yours is a point I along with countless other Social Conservatives have been making for a very long time.
You are absolutely correct. It’s not about the tax code, it’s about destroying the institution of marriage and its religious roots in GOD’s ordination of marriage being one man, one woman.
Historically, marriage was a religious and cultural institution, not a legal one. Government only inserted itself into the issue when it wanted to do some social engineering and/or taxing.
I’m all in favor of getting government completely out of the marriage business. It is none of their business. I’m in favor of marriage (as the term has been understood for thousands of years), but not in favor of government subsidies or penalties. And I’m especially not in favor of government intrusion into my personal business in any way, shape, or form.
It’s really none of the government’s business whether I’m married or not. That’s between me, my spouse, and God. The only other entities who should have any interest in it are my family and friends. Not governments or businesses.
Rand is a rational man who doesn’t get how fanatics think. The gay activists are fanatics. They are on a vendetta against society, the church and God. They do not even know what they want or else they would not go to bath houses and do the things they do which are dangerous to their own lives. When people’s obsessions supersede their survival instinct, they should definately not be leading the parade of social change. Many homosexual activists are very bright and glib, they are very good at rationalizing their insanity and that is very dangerous not just for them but for society as a whole.
When they invade churches during religious services they are declaring war on the churches. These are not nice people and they do not want to go half way. They want it all. They are mad, sick people who want to control society. The more power they get by weak people giving in to them the worst they get. They are very much like spoiled children who become more irrational the more their parents give in to them.
