Shove your constitution!!

This is almost on par with those crazy Westboro guys. "I'll disrespect the constitution, even though it's the primary reason why I can say such a thing!". The naivety of this is astonishing and it's a major reason why this particular small religion is eroding away in 1st world countries. Keep up the good work, Hitch.

Quote
6 “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’[a] 7 ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, 8 and the two will become one flesh.’[c] So they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

And this is just one belief of many. This law you follow here is being made better by our own culture- allowing others to join and share the same rights you and I do.

Well quite frankly it isn't anyone elses business how others want to live and I personally think it should be allowed because its their right to choose with who or what they prefer and I don't see where it is hurting you or anyone else..... My fiancé and I feel it should be their choice and that is saying something for my fiancé because he is a homophobe so if he can look past his own somewhat ignorance then I feel anyone can because he is the most opinionated person I know.

Cherry picking. Why only highlight the one major event in this church and not the actual statistics? Why not retention rates or growth rates in 1st-world countries? http://www.jwfacts.com/watchtower/statistics.php

And besides- one who looks down upon their society's gov't and refuses to participate shouldn't have a say in gov't...so I honestly have no idea why you're even in this thread because the thread is about present-day gay rights.

Unless he's some crazy religious person, the best way to make him think about his standpoint is to ask him what if he was unable to love you due to the law? Would he consider that fair? Ultimately he has the right to be homophobic, but if it's trampling on other people's rights, that's where the problem is.

What if I don't want 'my witness' and/or 'the power vested in (the judge or minister saying the marriage)' to stand for "fruitless copulation"? Which is what it would do if I lived in a state that unites same-gendered partners as such.
