[QUOTE=SnakeHead;18193730]Hey, let's keep discriminating against people even though we should have gotten past this ages ago. [editline]08:04PM[/editline] You may hate it, but we have more rights than some countries do.[/QUOTE] But not all. Gay marriage is legal across the entire nation here.
This shouldn't even be voted on. It voids your 8th amendment. If I was gay I would sue the states/nation for voiding my rights. But im not gay, still wrong.
[QUOTE=ScoutKing;18193783]This shouldn't even be voted on. It voids your 8th amendment.[/QUOTE] [quote=The 8th Amendment]Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.[/quote] What
[QUOTE=pie_is_good;18193575]They don't. Either they can have a childless marriage or adopt a kid.[/QUOTE] They can also do vitro, so at least one from the couple gets to be a biological parent.
[QUOTE=TH89;18193806]What[/QUOTE] Probably the unusual punishment, which is the only part of that amendment I can see relating in any way to this.
It doesn't relate to this.
[QUOTE=TH89;18193806]What[/QUOTE] Maybe he's talking about the other 8th amendment.
[QUOTE=TH89;18193848]It doesn't relate to this.[/QUOTE] That's why I said it's the only thing I could possibly see as having any relation to this, I never said it did.
[QUOTE=Malumbre;18193685] Yeah man, all the Jews should have just lined up and hopped in the ovens and gas chambers, and nobody should have raised a finger against Nazi Germany. Why the hell do people have to protest and complain, geez![/QUOTE] How the hell did you interpret this from what I said?
[QUOTE=TH89;18193806]What[/QUOTE] Huh Im thinking of the wrong admendment... It may be the 9th. But I know one states's you have the right to live life the way you want too.
[QUOTE=iownuall;18193596]Damn, why do gay people bitch about this sort of stuf? If they want to get married they should go to fucking canada, that way this shit doesn't have to happen again and again and again and again.....[/QUOTE] Maine does not honor two gay people as capable of being 'married'. Those people would have to stay in Canada if they wanted their relationship recognized.
amendment 9. "Amendment 9: Unlisted rights are not necessarily denied. " Gay marriage is a right, its not listed, so its not necessarily denied.
[QUOTE=Cathbadh;18193904]Maine does not honor two gay people as capable of being 'married'. Those people would have to stay in Canada if they wanted their relationship recognized.[/QUOTE] They shouldn't have to. It's wrong that the government isn't recognising their marriages.
Just fucking ban marriage. Don't let it even be a part of the state, make it purely a business contract thing.
Theological government is dumb, they put faith over logic, they're no better than the people that instead of calling 911 when someone gets stabbed they pray over them.
[QUOTE=Marlwolf78;18193882]How the hell did you interpret this from what I said?[/QUOTE] Not what you said, it was a reply to what iownuall said about complaining.
[QUOTE=Cloak Raider;18193423]Then they should be allowed to choose. They are the parents, they decide if they want to have children.[/QUOTE] Isn't it a bit selfish to decide that without taking the fate of the child into account?
[QUOTE=BRIAN BLESSED;18193966]Isn't it a bit selfish to decide that without taking the fate of the child into account?[/QUOTE] Maybe the child will grow up to be tolerant of others and not support these sorts of things in the future.
[QUOTE=BRIAN BLESSED;18193966]Isn't it a bit selfish to decide that without taking the fate of the child into account?[/QUOTE] If the world wasn't filled with bigots it wouldn't be a fucking problem in the kids were brought up under a gay/lesbian couple. That is like saying an oppressed people shouldn't have children for their 'kid's sake'. Like Slaves in America shouldn't have had kids, or Gypsys in Europe or Palestinians in the Middle East.
good riddens
[QUOTE=Phanny;18194035]good riddens[/QUOTE] Anyone else find the irony that we can look down on slavery, to suggest it is wrong to have second class citizens, then turn our backs to the plight of Americas true second class citizens.
[QUOTE=Boba_Fett;18193658]You use the same irrelevant argument every time, Chippy. Now stop posting. :smug:[/QUOTE] you really told that chippy guy a thing or too, guy named after a starwars character. you accidently quoted me though. next time i see him i'll send him your way but really, answer the questions. special note on the: do you realize how stupid you are?
[QUOTE=Malumbre;18194009]Maybe the child will grow up to be tolerant of others and not support these sorts of things in the future.[/QUOTE] He'd get picked on at school.
[QUOTE=BRIAN BLESSED;18193966]Isn't it a bit selfish to decide that without taking the fate of the child into account?[/QUOTE] so straight people shouldn't have kids either according to your logic. Gay parents don't necessary= gay kid. Also if the kids DOES end up gay, what right does the goverment have to say the "fate" of being gay shouldn't happen. Thats almost opening admitting gays are a second class if you fallow this logic, and if the subject of this is brought up in a court, or government, who ever brought it up needs to be removed of power, or just kicked out of the discussion because its obvious they are ignorant of society.
[QUOTE=ScoutKing;18193889]Huh Im thinking of the wrong admendment... It may be the 9th. But I know one states's you have the right to live life the way you want too.[/QUOTE] Nope, no amendment says that
[QUOTE=Chippay;18194073]you really told that chippy guy a thing or too, guy named after a starwars character. you accidently quoted me though. next time i see him i'll send him your way [/QUOTE] Resorting to name calling I see.
Goddamnit old white people...
[QUOTE=TH89;18194095]Nope, no amendment says that[/QUOTE] Amendment 9: Unlisted rights are not necessarily denied. Interrupt it.
[QUOTE=TH89;18194095]Nope, no amendment says that[/QUOTE] He is probably thinking of the preamble to the constitution (both the 'justice' and 'liberty' portion).
[QUOTE=ScoutKing;18194129]Amendment 9: Unlisted rights are not necessarily denied. Interrupt it.[/QUOTE] That doesn't mean anything you want to do is a right.
