  •  How can you force homosexual marriage on everyone? (1+ / 0-)

    You cannot.

    If you are not gay, you won't have to marry a homosexual.

    If you are gay and you still don't want to marry a homosexual, you don't have to either.

    If you don't like gay marriage, don't get gay-married.

    gays who marry each other do not take any right away from either you or me.

    Preventing gay-marriage does however, take the concept of equality away from gays.

    •  Exactly. It is between those getting married (0+ / 0-)

      or not. Loving each other is not a sin... it is one of lifes greatest gifts... to reach out beyond the self to value another as yourself. It is a sin to forbid anyone love and committment... Those who fear it are selfish and concerned only with thier comfort zones...They are not the last judge, they are not morality police, they are not entitled to control everyone else...

      I too thought that question was literally stupid and obtuse. No one is trying to force me and my spouse to marry someone of the same sex. Geesh why should we be in the business of forcing them to look only at the opposite sex. Personally I don't want to know about anyone sex life. NADA, no one,

      No one is as far as I am aware trying to force any  church or religious group to perform the ceremonies. Many of those even have rules for hetero couples.

    •  Why Not? (0+ / 0-)

      In fact, I think this would make an excellent ad against the right-wing hate machine.

      First, simply ask the question...

      Should the Government be able to force only homosexual marriage on everyone in the United States?
      Then, when the right-wing blustering and name calling begins, calmly state that you actually agree that the Government should NOT be able to do this.

      Then ask another question...

      But, why then, do you want to insist that the Government should be able to enforce only heterosexual marriage  on everyone in the United States?
      Then, simply sit back and let the games begin :-)
