banning gay marriages?

Postby lennye_tran » Wed Jul 14, 2004 5:19 am

Gay people have been coming out of their closets, but do people accept them for who they are? Do people respect the fact that they have the same rights as others? Let's take the issue of banning gay marriages is an example. Is that act justified? Is marriage really only a legally union between a woman and a man? Would it affect anything to the well-being of children? Their future??......................
WHAT DO YOU THINK? SHOULD IT BE OR SHOULDN'T IT BE?

Every single person's rights should be respected. So I think banning gay marriages is deplorable. They have the same rights as heterosexuals to be happy.

Replaying a conversation between A and B....
A: I think they should ban it. It's outrageous. (blah blah blah... on and on how wrong it is) Marriage is a legal form between a man and a woman. Tell me where the definition said marriage could be between two men or two women? Overall, God created Adams and Eve for a reason, creating new lives.
B: God created Adams and Eve for a reason to create new lives? They both got kicked out of Eden because they ate the forbidden fruit. Eve was punished in bearing. By the way, he did not create them to bring new lives. Bible was written by HUMANS. They tried to explain why we had both women and men. If God did create Adams, why couldn't he create another Adams if he felt Adams needed a friend? He could do anything, he was The Almighty. He could create Eve the same way he created Adams, but noooooooooo.... Eve was from Adams's ribs. What's up with that?
Anything happens for a reason, so if you do believe in God. You should think this could be the way God wanted it to be. Since, we all humans are filled with prejudice and judgements. We are afraid of anything differents than ours. We're threaten by people who have different ideas. We avoid to open our minds. Maybe this is time. We need to accept others who are different than us. We think we deserve to have rights, then why can't they?

From a position of man they are afraid of sexual harassments from gay.
So, I as the girl easy concern to gays, I do not accept only violence and a distortion. And to forbid weddings gays is infringement of human rights on my opinion.
It only a part of our many-sided world.


I don't wanna discuss about religion because it's a huge topic. One should do this, one should do that, blah blah blah. Even religions have their ~ history so I, myself, don't wanna base on religion to explain human behaviors.
As for marriage, it's a human right, not a heterosexual privilege. Gay people have the same rights as ours. Thus, they have the right to get married. We can't based the view of marriage on religion.
Gay guys don't make a move on straight guys. It's obvious to tell which is which in their world. A straight guy who is afraid of gay guys because he doesn't want people who are not gays think he's gay. That's just an ego of a man.
Although people think they have rights, but they don't wanna accept gay marriages. As a result, less than 10 states in the US give them the right to get married. So people in all other states are narrow-minded???? Well, I'm still looking for the answer myself....

i am a christian but I think it's ok. I agree with Medula Orgola.
Everyone have his/her right.
They themself want to have a marrige between a man and a woman. But they can't, they r diseased.

Tahrer, I don't agree with you. All people should have the right to be happy, and if they want to marry someone of the same sex, what's the problem?

Fortunately, gays and lesbians are gaining more freedom nowadays. In Spain, a new law that allows gay marriages is being approved today. ;)

I guess that anal sex must be terrible! coz after a while, gays' anuses will be out of control, I mean, the gays will lose control of their ~....I don't know whether you guys get what I mean...due to my poor english. ok, let me explain it again.

after gays have had anal sex for a while, their anuses will get lax, so their ~ can't help falling from their lax anuses.

Do you understand? :cry:
