  1. Do not presume that you speak for all conservatives. Stupidity such as yours gives conservatism a bad name. A written mythology such as your Bible is no basis for legislation.

      Hi Chris,

      I didn’t mean to offend. If you don’t believe in the Bible then you can consider it “mythical” but for those of us who believe in the Bible it is not a mythical book. It is indeed the word of God. I’m just trying to explain where the dis-enchantment with the term “Same Sex Marriage” and this particular lifestyle comes from. As I stated in the article, I don’t judge. It’s not my place. I have no problem with “Civil Unions” just as long as it’s not government sanctioned. Government tends to complicate things that should be fairly simple by regulating/legislating them. I don’t have any problems with same sex relationships. I don’t personally support the idea, but that simply means, I’m not interested in participating in that type of lifestyle. I don’t care what anyone else does just as long as it doesn’t affect my personal life and I can assure you that it does not.

      You mentioned the military in your post. My son’s a Marine (well not yet but really soon!). I could care less who’s fighting side by side with him just as long as they keep each other alive. I don’t subscribe to the notion of don’t ask don’t tell. I think it’s a personal choice. If someone decides that he wants to announce his sexuality, fine. I personally don’t think it’s necessary to announce sexuality but I may feel differently if I had to be specific about my own.

      So Chris, don’t be vexed. You strive to be heard and understood, I am the same. We can disagree and still be friends or at least civil towards one another. It was simply commentary.
      I’ll be posting Part II soon, perhaps you will get a better understanding of where I’m going with this 3 part series. I hope you’ll read it. I look forward to hearing your opinion on it 🙂

      • Oh, I know where your disenchantment comes from. It does not make it any less nonsensical. Belief in a religious tract is not a foundation for anything, really. You could as well cite Santa Claus or the tooth fairy, and be on the same footing. To put a fine point on it, some people believe in Sharia Law. Why is there belief any more or less justifiable or persuasive than your own?

        I will agree with you that the government should not be involved. It is none of the government’s business who marries whom, so long as they are consenting adults. In fact, there is a colorable argument that same sex marriage STRENGTHENS traditional marriage rather than weakens it: by providing the legal benefits of marriage to same sex couples, one then does not have to enshrine those benefits in law to unmarried partners (as is often done), which means that even heterosexual shack-ups cannot obtain those benefits without marriage (as they can in such states).

        In the end, civilly, marriage is merely a matter of contract. Government shouldn’t have any hand other than providing a means to enforce the terms of the contract, which should be able to take any form to which the parties agree.
