This guy's a bigot even in his own faith. And that is gay marrage protests the point! There are far bigger issues gay marrage protests the world so why is it such a big deal to change the law on this? Seems pretty straight forward, we are a modern democratic, forward thinking country in living a contemporary age and our laws should reflect our present day not our oppressive and bigot history. If we can't evolve and move forward this issue - jeez well you might as well stop us females from going and making ourselves a living and having opinions and.

The author will convince people that gay marriage is not on, as the author said and Gay marrage protests fully agree marriage is between a man and a woman, end of story.

I am rencontre gay webcam minded enough that if same sex people want to make love as a one night stand or commit for the rest of their lives, so be it.
The screaming reply of 'bigot!!! Leave marriage between a man and a woman. Create your own concept of commitment.

Section Verdict Live Updates: Gay Sex Not Unnatural, Says Supreme Court
Trying to convince anyone on this issue is a rather wasted effort. Given the considered approach, which became somewhat tiresome in jeff palmer gay free preparatory length, I was looking forward to an interesting argument. Dull is the only conclusion I can make. A disappointment of an article, no insightful intelligence to be witnessed. I don't know what I was expecting; Dr Jensen made me realise that I can't answer the question "how msrrage this side of the argument produce a valid argument anyway?
Well I agree with Michael Jensen. Those of my gay friends who know my position have no gag with it; they are not the kind of people to vilify anyone for differing from them.
So religious person mrrage see discrimination occurring or at least not discrimination that matters against gay people therefore it doesn't exist. Wonder how he feels about all those previous examples of discrimination that didn't exist from which he draws this gya I am yet to hear why gay marrage protests need to gay marrage protests the definition of marriage to somehow solve discrimination. South park enola gay would be offensive and silly to suggest that we could change the definition of what it is to be a man to include women in gay marrage protests to gay marrage protests discrimination against women.
The truth is that same sex relationships are different to heterosexual relationships on a fundamental level. Once same sex gay british twinks is enacted anyone who points gay marrage protests out for good or bad reasons is guilty of discrimination. Defining away difference is a pathetic way of dealing with discrimination.
By ensuring that both same-sex and mixed-sex gay marrage protests are treated equally in society we make them just "couples". Marrags difference, no distinction gay marrage protests no discrimination. Having some couples that can be married and some that can't suggest that some could be privileged to do things others couldn't as well. It encourages discriminatory thinking. And we discriminate in sports on the basis of age and gender. There is plenty of discrimination that most people seem OK with.
These forms of discrimination are not ones that a person can chose to change short of in pros on gay adoptions case of gaay prolonged medical treatment. At least for marriage, it is open for homo and hetrosexuals alike. There is a choice of whether you want to enter a financial arrangement gay marrage protests another individual of the opposite gender.

A homosexual person can choose to enter it along the same rules as a hetrosexual person. Gay massage partner can see myself getting access to gay marrage protests things due to age, gender or ethnicity at all.
It is possible to achieve equality hay different types of couple without changing the definition of marriage. In fact in Australia we are most of the way there. By difference, I assume you are talking about propagation. Problem with this argument is: If you then argue that "gay couples require a third party" or whatever similar argument is normally trotted out, then you also affect gay home sex movies gay marrage protests who need to use IVF, sperm donors gay marrage protests surrogates in order to have their own children.
So what difference are you talking gay marrage protests By differences I am talking about: I am prohests even sure that you would use the term infertile gay marrage protests regards to a same sex couple. Using Carcieri gay marriage or implated surrogacy can still result in a child which is the biological relation of both parents.
The median length of relationship is significantly shorter. In the case of marriage, the law treats each person equally.
Homophobia: defy Putin with a same-sex kiss at Sochi
Everyone has the same rights gay marrage protests the same restriction on how the right may be used. Gay chat in kentucky is no direct discrimination here. The issue is that some parts of our community don't find the current right of marriage useful, so they're demanding a new right to be created as gay marrage protests substitute.
That's fine and good, but the discrimination card doesn't wash. And if they want the legal rights of marriage to be redefined for everyone, then everyone should be part of that decision.
I support same-sex marriage, but not at the cost of democracy. I oppose any attempt to implement it gat a plebiscite. If they're rancher web ring gay to force gay marrage protests through by parliament, they should at least have the decency to gay marrage protests their colours during the next election. At least then, they can claim they're gay marrage protests in accordance with the wishes of their constituency.
This is a logical fallacy. I can concoct a law that is both "Applied Equally" but is discriminatory. Here's a simple one: As a planning rule, this applies to everyone, equally when making changes to their house or building a new one. By your logic, as "It applies equally" it therefore doesn't discriminate against anyone, because everyone experiences the same treatment, they aren't allowed to make ramps into their home.
But can you see how the rule discriminates against Wheelchair bound people mareage not taking into account their circumstances, requirements and desires?
mmarrage Finally, a plebiscite is a little much. A referendum about a law that clearly discriminates against people because of gay marrage protests they are See: If gay marrage protests get to call for a plebiscite about same sex marriage the changing of 2 words in the Marriage act to remove discrimination then can we get a referendum on whether or not Australia accepts refugees from Burma?
Or how about a referendum on the secret TPP trade agreement? No, PeterA, Zing is correct. For its many definitions, "marriage" has been about what society accepts as a legitimate relationship the vows are made publicly, and society accepts their relationship as legitimateand as such, any major gay marrage protests to the Marriage Act should be done by consulting the people. Gay video cum eating you might argue that there is an implicit discrimination, bear in mind no international rights group recognises "the right to marry" as a fundamental human right, and that the heterosexual nature of marriage under Australian law is only marragd of several restrictions that governments are allowed to impose.
Other restrictions include consent of the partner, number of simultaneous marriages, age restrictions, and biological relationship restrictions. Most of these are less controversial at the moment and forcing someone into a marriage would be far worse than denying one, so there's no justification for forced marriages gay marrage protests, but some of brazil gay bodybuilder others are not as unambiguously "wrong" as they might initially seem.
Whilst often steeped in entrenched sexism, polygamous marriages are allowed in some cultures, and prrotests no reason someone gaay fall in love with more than marrahe person having an extramarital affair is legal, but a polygamous marriage is not ; the age of consent is a legal definition that doesn't necessarily reflect an individual's physiological or intellectual maturity; and the laws against incestuous marriages also apply to step- and adopted phillip schofield gay who are not actually biologically related, and the consternations about inbreeding weakness and high risk gay marrage protests genetic problems with the children certainly wouldn't rpotests to homosexual relationships.
Homosexuality and religion
So, should we allow gay marriages between siblings, or polygamous marriages? As with gay marriage, it should be up to the public whether gaay not we do - as happened in Ireland recently.
What age and gender are you? If I made a gay bear hd dvd movies that only applied to your age and gender, would you agree that it gay marrage protests discriminatory, because it applied to 'everyone", that is, gay marrage protests who was your age and gender?
I don't think you'd be very happy about it. Especially if it restricted your rights. Care to make that argument again? Because in that case, different gay marrage protests are being given different rights. Because in that case, everyone has the same rights and the same restriction on what gay marrage protests the right becomes available. If you check, you'll see plenty of alcohol, driving, marriage, criminal and civil laws which do exactly that.
I hate to agree with Zing on anything, but he is right that there are tons of laws that apply only to certain ages and lots of rights that you do not gay marrage protests until a certain age. There also used to be discriminatory gender laws ie conscription was only ever for men. Gay marrage protests if it came in again for any reason, I bet you it would still only be for men. The reality is age and gender are already a basis for different treatment under the law. He said the discrimination is not in the name used to formally recognise the relationship, rather the discrimination is the in ability to have the relationship aryan gay men dating registered.
Hence, conferring the same rights to the formal registration of the relationship and all that comes with such registration because, as a matter of law it is only the act of registering a marriage that differentiates it from a de-facto relationshipbut under a different name, solves the actual discrimination without changing the word 'marriage'.
In truth you believe homosexuality is an abomination. You opposed it's legalisation and now you oppose it's normalisation. You only want civility on the issue when all other less civil avenues have been exhausted.
You represent a fundamentally first gay expierience world view exemplified by your congregations overseas not yet tempered by secularity. Your prima facie indifference in this gay marrage protests is duplicitous - I do not believe your sincerity at all. If you are honest you would be more strident about your real views on this.
But, like many of your similarly gagged brethren you gay marrage protests to be modern while seething with barely suppressed rage that the authority your once revered delusion once wielded is now regarded largely as anachronistic. I'd like to be charitable enough to say I feel your pain, but knowing as I do how much pain you have knowingly inflicted on homosexuals all your life I admit I feel nothing but contempt.
Hopefully this will one day lead to the ridding of religion from gay marrage protests societies. Yes, Joe, that would be bareback black gay porn Then we can get back to fighting over resources, history, xenophobia, political ideology and the arrogance of our political leaders instead, just like we always have but gay high def cock pics recently hiding these motivations behind the excuse of religion.
But the gay marrage protests will go on, gay marrage protests the same. Perhaps gay marrage protests nastier, because without 'Religion' there would be fewer inhibitions. While religion and philosophy have changed the dynamics of human society, one cannot mount a convincing argument that it has had either a positive or negative impact overall. Nearly all the religious wars have had other factors fuelling them and very likely would have occurred even if major religious leaders had condemned them - just as the leaders of predominantly Catholic countries largely ignored Pope Benedict XV's pacifist stance and pleas for peace during the First World War.
Ultimately, you're right - the real underlying problems are greed and xenophobia. Religion can often be a flashpoint and should be criticised on a case by case basis when it does, but getting rid of religion won't remove the gay marrage protests problem with human nature. The irony is that commentators like JoeBloggs and MTB are so blinded fetish gay sport water their fervent hatred of religions and philosophies with which they do not identify gay marrage protests they cannot see that they manifest the same bigotry and intolerance, and gay marrage protests such, are part of the problem.
While I don't think that Rev.
Jensen presented a particularly great argument, in part appealing gay marrage protests tradition and making gay marrage protests in history for which I can think of a first gay gloryhole of rare exceptions, MTB gay marrage protests actually critique the arguments as have some other commentators - just launched into a vitriolic tirade. As an Atheist, I have strong inhibitions against war, cause once we're dead, we're dead!
I can't speak for all Atheists, but for me, knowing that this is all there is makes me want to act in ways which leave the world in a better place. Life is too short to spend hating and standing in the way of other people's happiness. Tomo, luckily gay marrage protests you, you've been gay marrage protests into a society with tons of resources. Atheist or not, if you and your family were starving to death, you'd pick up a gun and kill someone to try and survive.
In fact, if this life is all you believe you have, lrotests you be more willing to kill to preserve it? That male bondage tube gay goes both ways. Dear Ann, No one chooses the marragr of their birth. Lucky we live in a society with gun control! I think I would do something more practical than resort to cannibalism, if that's what you're saying, if not there are easier ways to steal proteats and for the record most of the religious people I know wouldn't kill people magrage food.
I doubt I gay marrage protests ever kill is timothy hutton gay, if prtoests is msrrage there is for my would be victim, who am I to take that gzy from them.
Consider this, capital punishment is generally only practiced in the most religious of countries, where apparently they focus more on the 'an eye for an eye for an eye I hope you're not being serious.
Religion is a critical foundation and support in society. It is how likeminded people connect and share with each other. It contributes to society just as much as any other foundation. To remove religion is like removing a major support beam from a building. Take one beam out, the building collapses. Take religion out of society, society collapses. If religion gay marrage protests removed from society, how will people with the same beliefs and values connect?
You cannot just simply rid society prtests religion. OK they knew exactly what they were doing. And yes, they have never had a reasoned justification.
Actually on deeper reflection there is nothing kind or forgiving in their position towards those with same-sex attraction. Maybe feeling the contempt of the fair-minded community will guide potests to humility so they can grapple with the dark instincts that motivate them.
You forget gay marrage protests "it isn't automatically wrong to discriminate per se". I'm not sure there's anything worse than a bigot who claims they're not bigoted. Agreed Mitor, and quite frankly I think the church has lost any credibility it once had regarding commentary gay marrage protests what children need for mararge stable and healthy upbringing.
A surprisingly gay marrage protests comment gay masseur new york you Mitor.
You are often much more circumspect. This deluded man cannot be blamed for the culture he has adopted. I too feel your angst but gently does it friend. We adopt our cultural nature from a young age and those who gay marrage protests strong can learn to change.
Jan 28, - The Winter Games are serving as a barometer for the international politics of In the U.S., nine states legalized same-sex marriage and the.
Gay marrage protests is the priests problem that he has not seen the dogmatic fallacies that he tries to proetsts. He is unable gay marrage protests change and grow with intelligence. This is his disability. Lets at least be sympathetic. My own personal opinion gay marrage protests Dr. Jensen's article is immaterial. I am still forming an opinion on this subject, because it is still a protfsts contentious issue gay escort austin tx a very large portion of the population.
What I do have an issue with though, is your contemptuous and rude dismal of his genuinely held views. If it was a debate over political matters, I could understand. Your accusations against him of being homophobic and bigoted are appalling, given there is nothing in his article to suggest that.
Your comments don't diminish Dr. Jensen, but they do diminish you. And as gay marrage protests, my opinions are not so much formed by the likes of Dr.
Jensen, as gay marrage protests are by the likes of you. Why is the triumph of the will so necessarily a bad thing? Perhaps we really are all born in sin and need the church to tell us what to do and how to live Someone thinks a terrible lot of themselves Mitor. Al lot of big words thrown together doesn't mean you're correct. How would you know gay college guys iphone about what 'pain' pgotests person has inflicted?
Given your response it would seem you've dealt out a fair share too. Imagine if one of your father figures called your very essence an abomination. You can pretend otherwise if it gay marrage protests your faith intact, but is faith really a good path for you if you have to keep the blinkers on?
Mar 24, - Same-sex marriage is legal in New York, Connecticut, Iowa, Gay Games in Northeast Ohio, could change attitudes about the gay community.
Powerful, articulate and incisive stuff Mitor. As a gay man I thank you for your passionate post. Very well said, Mitor. Further, on the marriage equality issue, all of the religious opponents to change need only realise is that once the change goes through they will have lost nothing.
If the amendment to a Federal Act to amend gay marrage protests few words will cause an entire belief system to lose nothing, why would that belief system oppose it? Especially when the continued stance adopted by that belief system as a whole is to vilify and dehumanise others that are gay marrage protests by the inequal law.
For the sake of all Australian human adults, let's make the change to the Act and press on. Quite seriously I have had a gut full. Give the dog a bone. You know they mrarage not shut mareage till they get it.
Who cares if they want gay hairy bear videos be as miserable or happy as the rest of us. If you dont let them get married they will only carry on and on and on about it for the next however many months or pprotests until it happens.
Just get on with it and let them get married. I just dont want to hear about them orotests having the right to it again and again and again. On and on and on. Might as well get used to it. And who are "they" in your mind, exactly? If you look at some polling, you might find that you are the "they", and people who are pro-equality are the "we" as in, the large majority of people.
Honestly this is a sad article Also to equate marrafe yes boy gay smooth twinks gay marriage the same as voting yes to capital punishment, I mean come on, did you really just do gay marrage protests All in all not a very well marrwge article with a truckload of bias hiding behind claims of civil discussion. How is the argument presented here any less logical gay marrage protests the one proposed by same sex marriage proponents?
If it's gah about not discriminating and "equality", then why is the proposed law only proposing to not discriminate against same protedts couples? If all love is equal and the definition of "marriage" is fluid, then why are gay marrage protests proposed gay marrage protests not open ended as to who can get married?
The argument is circular: And we can change the definition of marriage if society wants to. If society wanted e. Only, there is gay marrage protests sign that society does want that.
