    I'm posting a thread on this because I've heard this argument from three different places today, and even a little bit of thought demonstrates that it is pure nonsense.

    The argument is that gays already have the right to marry people of the opposite sex and gay marriage gives them a special right.

    It is true that a gay person can marriage someone of the opposite sex if they want. But does gay marriage give a special right? Obviously not because under a gay marriage system a straight person could marry someone of the same sex if they want. Everyone would still all have the same right and no one has special rights.

    Whatever side of the issue people are on, it is best to avoid patently stupid arguments.

    The ultimate goal gay marriage is polygamy. That is the only reason to be against it.

    No the goal of gay marriage is to be "accepted."

    Very much like Dwarfs who want to play basketball.

    No, Gays and Lesbians DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO MARRY. IF such a right did in fact exsist, then the whole marriage argument would be moot.

    Seperate but equal is UN-CONSTITUTIONAL.

    And for all you far right, wing nut, nazi loving, homo hating cons just so you know. Judge Walker was appointed by.........wait for it.......any minute now......wait............................... George H.W. Bush.

    Fucking activist judges.

    Besides immigration, another ramification of same-sex marriage on a federal level are Social Security concerns. Bob, now a spouse of Larry, will be entitled to Larry's social security survivor benefits, when Larry dies.
    KEE-RIHST, we can barely pay entitlements now.
    Anyone who believes that same-sex marriage on a federal level won't effect society as a whole, has their head in a sand fukin' hole.

    Good point.

    The gays will single-handedly bankrupt our nation by collecting social security benefits.

    Right wingers say gays want to be "accepted"? By who, right wingers who want them dead?

    Every argument the right has against gays is retarded. It's about about as logical as:

    Teaching magical creation as science.

    As cutting taxes on the one group of people who don't need the money and saying it will not raise the deficit.

    As apologizing to BP.

    As blocking unemployment benefits to American citizens whose jobs were victimized by Republican policies.

    Funny, you look at the contributions to American society from the gays, and it's all out of proportion to their small numbers. It's enormous.

    ON THE OTHER HAND

    You look at the contribution to American society from the right and it's almost negligible. You have to go research to find a single thing of importance. And I'm STILL looking for that "single thing". But if you are looking for something negative, that's entirely different. That's easy to find.
