Just because you believe it now doesn't mean that will be so in 20 or 30 years.

I don't like the concept of state-sponsored same-sex marriage. I don't like the concept of state-sponsored marriage in general. If we allow the state to sponsor "traditional" marriage then we should let the state sponsor just "marriage" meaning any two humans can marry. But why stop there? Why can only two people get married? Why not 3 or 4 or 50? I just have a fundamental problem with the state endorsing and granting rights for life-style choices. The government has no business doing that. Marriage should be a religious/societal thing only. The question is how do we extricate the concept of legal marriage from our society?
some good points made here. but, i can honestly state that i will always believe in equal rights. as for the 3 or 4 or 50, i don't think that should even be addressed until we all have equal rights

until everyone has the right to have one marriage, we shouldn't worry about giving everyone the right to multiple marriages. i'm not a mathematician, but i don't believe 3 = 0, 4 = 0, or 50 = 0. i believe that 1 = 1, 3 = 3, 4 = 4, and 50 = 50. please correct my math if i'm mistaken

Re: Same-Sex Marriage!! Your Thoughts

I am politically pretty conservative on most issues like economics, the size of government, protection our national security, but when it comes to SSM I honestly could care less. I have several friends who are gay and I say more power to them. It is just not something that concerns me. Lots of other things to be worked up over in my humble opinion.

You know youre using the exact same argument "traditional marriage" proponents use:

“Everyone has the right to marry someone of the opposite gender. It youre a gay man you can still marry a women. If you’re a lesbian you can still marry a man. Everyone has the same rights. There are; however, no special rights for lifestyles, for either gay or straight people.”

Im with you, I fully support gay marriage. But I also support a person’s right to marry multiple persons. It’s the same thing. I don’t like the idea of the government endorsing or opposing lifestyle decisions for straight people, gay people, or polygamist. If all parties have the capacity to be a willing and agreeing partner our government shouldn’t restrict them.

Re: Same-Sex Marriage!! Your Thoughts

i can dig it. to rephrase, i believe everyone should have the right to marry the one they love before we approach the topic of everyone having the right to marry the ones the love.

Re: Same-Sex Marriage!! Your Thoughts

I think state sponsored marriage is unconstitutional anyway.
