harpmolly BS: On Same-Sex Marriages (812* d) RE: BS: On Same-Sex Marriages 17 Sep 07


"This thread has nothing to do with how many homosexual friends I have or you have. It is about the effect of homosexual marriage on the rights of everyone, and I have tried to argue from the point of view of those who believe in the institution of marriage as traditionally defined."

Why on earth would you spend the better part of two weeks vehemently arguing a point of view that you claim is not your own?

"they are Joe and Jane public...whether you like it or not."

Hmmm...so who am I, and who are the rest of the people on this thread, and who are the other millions of people who DON'T believe that gay people should be denied the right of civil marriage? Joe and Jane Nobody-Cares-About-Your-Opinion-Now-Shut-Up?

For someone who claims to be "objective", I don't see you trying to argue the other side. I don't see you trying to appreciate the point of view of those who believe that "traditional" marriage is what you make it, and that compassion and empathy are just as important as the right of "Joe and Jane Sixpack" to define what marriage should be.

And you still haven't ever managed to convince us how Joe and Jane are being disenfranchised...
