  •  Gay-bashing in the name of God is cowardly (2+ / 0-)

    I always have to heave a sigh and roll my eyes whenever self-proclaimed Christians indignantly declare that gay marriage defies "the word of God". This argument is both cowardly and disingenuous -- using biased interpretations of cherry-picked biblical passages to justify their brand of social intolerance and religious self-righteousness.

    The reason why some people are so opposed to gay marriage -- and all of the rights and benefits that come with a marriage certificate -- is because the thought of homosexuals expressing physical affection for one another totally repulses them, and the notion that such a relationship could be officially sanctioned through marriage pours salt into the wound of their prejudice.

    The argument that gays should be satisfied with civil unions because it provides most of the same protections as marriage is akin to suggesting that blacks shouldn't care whether they are required to sit in the back of the bus, since all of the passengers will arrive at the same destination.

    The argument that marriage is intended by God for couples that can and will procreate is equally absurd, for then the law should restrict couples from marrying if one or both members are infertile, or are beyond child-bearing age, or if they have refused to contractually agree to procreate.

    After all, marriage should be between a man and his wife … and his mistress … and an occasional hooker or two … possibly ending in divorce -- you know, the traditional way as God intended it to be.

    Let us pause now for a moment of SCIENCE
