Marriage should be a right for all {pinko alert!}
the Auburn Plainsman ^ | 29.6.2011 | Editorial board

Posted on 06/30/2011 7:27:55 AM PDT by Cronos

New York approved a gay marriage bill Friday, making it the sixth state in the country to legalize homosexual unions.

We are pleased to see this measure taken in such an influential political state.

..While many of us may not exactly condone that lifestyle, to deny a same-sex couple the same rights as a heterosexual couple is wrong.

..The only factor that should make a difference in deciding to spend your life with another person is love and faithfulness

Many argue homosexual unions go against the sanctity of marriage according to their religious beliefs.

We believe the divorce rate in this country goes against the sanctity of marriage more than same-sex marriages.

In our generation, it seems as though people enter and exit marriages on a whim and don’t think about the commitment involved.

If any two adults feel they can reasonably make a marriage last “till death do they part,” then who are we to stop them?

What this victory in New York symbolizes is hope.

Hope that tolerance is coming and hope that one day people will understand.

Why can't we folks just unnerstand these gays who want us to accept their sinnin'? We are such bad people for pointing out that they sin.

Marriage is no right!.... It is a religious institution established by God.

From a societal perspective, IT IS A DUTY.

Why is it a duty??? because traditional marriage produces FUTURE TAX PAYERS!!!

Let a homo couple make babies without outside help before they start talking about “rights”!

The reality of “homosexual marriage” and monogamy is that it is contradictory to what homosexuality practices.

And homosexuals can’t procreate which is the primary reason for marriage.

homosexuals just can’t accept that a sexual fetish does not contribute to the continuance of society.

homosexual conduct is only about recreational sex, nothing more.

there is no love test in marriage. There is no orgasm test.

just a society rewards the institution for continuing society test.

If these people only want a right to a union.... why couldn’t we have a defined legal “union” called homosexual union or some such wording.They could hold ceremonies and all that, what ever the heck they want. Then they could have their “union”. It is not right to call it “marriage” as that already has a definition that same sex couples cannot meet.

But that is not what they are after. They want acceptance for their actions. They want validation that what they are doing is normal. They want the world to redefine God instituted holy sacraments to fit their perversions. May God have mercy on us all.

The gay activists constantly say that limiting marriage to opposite sex couples is discriminatory.

But if you think about it, limiting marriage to just two people is discriminatory. This writer is showing his/her own prejudice, by saying that “any two people” should be allowed to make committments, etc. He/she has some unspoken binary bias, that marriage is automatically two people.

Some gay activists would like to see legalized group marriage.

And if you think about it, ANY definition of marriage is discriminatory against how some people live their lives. If discrimination is our holy grail here, then logically, eventually there will not be any definition of marriage allowed, because any definition will be discriminatory to someone.

There has NEVER BEEN A LAW that prohibits homosexuals from getting married.

Homosexuals have ALWAYS HAD EXACTLY THE SAME rights as everyone else when it comes to marriage.

It’s intersting to see how many gay couples have gotten married.

In Massachusetts, which is the granddaddy of gay marriage states, only about 20% of homosexual couples in relationships have gotten married. That’s not 20% of all homosexuals, that’s 20% of homosexuals who claim to be in serious relationships.

Only 4% of marriages in Massachusetts are same-sex couples. The other 96% are traditional couples.

So it does appear that they are fighting hard for a “right”, but that relatively few will exercise that right once it’s granted.

Yes, it seems they want the right to say they can be married too, without actually going ahead and doing it.

These homosexual laws force others to support homosexual behavior. Such laws are unconstitutional in my opinion.

Intelligence tests look at how well you can discriminate between two ideas, images, concepts, etc. Vilify the word, “discrimination” and dumb down the public education system and you have this as one of the many results.

Re-defining what marriage is just throws the whole institution into chaos. What will follow are people wanting the right to group marriage (like you mentioned), polygamy, polyandry, adults-child marriage, marrying inanimate objects such as cars and pillows, adult-animal marriage, and every other bizarre and perverted thing you can think of.

These people and their financial backers are bound and determined to destroy what humanity has worked to try and build for the last 6,000 years.

Exactly -- if they want to have civil unions, or gay unions or la-di-dah-dooies, I don't care, but a marriage is a sacrament and as one freeper said here, it's a duty.

why stop at polygamy? polyamory -- a big bunch of various men, women,in-betweens, animals, whatever as one "marriage"...

This thing is insane -- not even Hinduism which is the antithesis of the Abrahamic faiths has ever legalised "gay marriages"

of course, spouses should be government supplied.

Obamarriage

Each person applies for marriage and the government hooks them up with the nearest man, woman, horse, etc.

you then get a house, free beer and a big voting button that just has the button "Vote yes"

Did someone say PINKO???


Genesis 13:13
Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the LORD.

Genesis 18:20-21
20. Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and
their sin so grievous
21. that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."

Genesis 19:4-7
4. Before they had gone to bed, all the men
from every part of the city of Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house.
5. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them
."
6. Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him
7. and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing.

 

Psalms 12:8      The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.

Ain't this just FABULOUS??      More?

Isaiah 3:9   The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.

2 Peter 2:13b  Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.


 

 

Ezekiel 16:49-50
49. "`Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.
50. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.



2 Peter 2

 1.  But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves.
 2.  Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
 3.  In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
 4.  For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell,  putting them into gloomy dungeons  to be held for judgment;
 5.  if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;
 6.  if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;
 7.  and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men
 8.  (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)--
 9.  if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
 10.  This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature  and despise authority.   Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings;
 11.  yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord.
 12.  But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.
 13.  They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done.
Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.



But there IS hope!!!

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

 9. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived:
     Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10. nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

 


If you could NOT change, you would be in most pitiful shape...

This is absolutely TRUE!

However; MARRIAGE is between a MAN and a WOMAN.

Calling PRIVILEDGES granted to QUEERS a 'marriage' and a 'right' is nothing more than a lie.

Marriage should be a right for all

It already is. There is no sexual orientation prerequisite for getting married. A gay man has the same right to marry a woman as a straight man has. Conversely, a gay man has the same prohibition against marrying a man as a straight man does.

Well, polygamy is logically perhaps the next surprise thing we will get bombarded with in not too much time from now. Why the networks need to show those shows about polygamous families, I have no idea. Perhaps the one thing that restrains polygamy from being such a forward issue right now is the fact that Judaism, Islam, and more recently, both the Nation of YHVH and Mormonism are the practicioners, and they despise these groups for practicing it. I wish people would just agree to either throwing it away at the generation now or be deported elsewhere for the practice of polygamy. And yes, my feelings about the ACLU on the matter for a few attorneys suggesting polygamy getting decriminalized would be to back off.

Simply having relationships with each other is not enough, at least for some of them. The real issue with wanting the relationships to be called marriage is about irritating the religious. In case some people don’t realize, identity politics is about people having to convince themselves that they are helpless against a hateful world. If gay pride wasn’t so prominent, if plenty of homosexuals, or anyone else, actually bothered using legal weapon ownership to defend themselves, and fought to uphold their second amendment rights, then the homosexual agenda would be out of business, plain and simple.

No way this genie goes back in the bottle.

The very word “definition” implies precision, which implies “limitation”. If there are no limitations to marriage, there is no definition of marriage. Hence, marriage means nothing.

And yes, the precedent is set; political cover has been created; nay - this will be a feather in the cap of politicians who champion this in their respective states.

Society is in an utter flatspin.

Silly leftist, government does not grant rights, rights were endowed man by the Creator. Government is supposed to uphold rights. Last I checked there was no right to be rewarded for choosing to engage in self destructive and disordered sexual activity, EVEN if you get a certificate!

I heard that Obama also approved the queer marriage act in new york, he said that they had done the right thing.

But on the other hand he said that personally he was not ready to support it.

Sounds like more double talk to me, if he thinks its the right thing then why can,t he support it? if he is not prepared to support it then he must think it is wrong.
