  1. Bush proposes gay marriage ban... gay marriage ban gets rejected. and there was much rejoicing.

    http://www.theage.com.au/news/world/bush-rebuffed-as-senate-rejects-gay-marriage-ban/2006/06/08/1149359883793.html

    my question is, what are conservatives so afraid of? they speak of 'quality of life' and all this horsecrap but they wouldn't give a home to a parentless child if it is two men or two women? and yet the sanctaty of marriage is oh so sacred what with polygamy and divorce and Britney Spears getting annauled after three hours.

    discuss.

  2. It's an election year, that's what they're afraid of. This is one of those issues that's only going to come up on even numbered years.

  3. yeah thats what I heard too... I find it annoying when there are more important things for him to be worrying about, its like they dont focus on problems only create issues they know will get them votes, and nothing ever seems to get solved does it? I have great confidence that gay marriage will eventually become legal, I think it was fourty years ago where it wasn't legal for interracial marriage wasn't it? so we will progress, but living with it currently being an issue is frustrating because I hate these idiots who have no case for their arugements.

  4. The gay marraige issue is one of those things that the Republican Party uses to distract people from actual problems, like increasing gas prices or a war that has already cost 200 billion dollars more than was estimated. He used the same tactic to help get himself reelected, despite all his failures. Anyone who knows enough about politics to be a politician should know that the Constitution was never meant for social issues like this. It's just an (appearently very effective) political tactic used to get support for doing nothing to deserve it.

  6. They really don't have a legitimate case. In Texas it was made illegal for a gay couple to adopt a child. The law was passed thanks to research that said gay parents were more likely to abuse their children than a heterosexual couple. This was later found to be flawed and completely false research from a christian research group.

    There's no way that they can ban Gay Marriage and hope it lasts. If they did it would only be repealed shortly after (much like good 'ol Prohibition).

    (Plus their whole argument on how legalizing gay marriage will lead to polygamy and bestiality is both untrue and fucking hilarious)

  7. yeah I had one kid argue with me that "then people would be allowed to marry their sister/dog/DVD player" and I nearly spat soda all over his face in laughter... it just makes no sense to me.

    and its fun to watch these people on TV, John Stewart was interviewing someone I didn't catch his name, but when they run out of arguements their faces get these blank expressions, they start stumbling over words and have literally nothing to say but "no no uhh but no the sanctaty of... no uhhh" haha.

  8. Glad you brought up Jon Stewart :p I came across This in the Daily Show LJ community. It's a list of some of Gay marriage's opponents and how well their marriages have been.

  9. It should be noted that McCain, who is listed here, is actually an ardent opponent of the ban. I think they're just naming republicans with bad relationship management skills.

  12. If anything, it would boost the economy. Gay weddings = more weddings = more cakes, tuxedos, dresses, catering, cheap DJ rental, etc.

  13. Hey, in Ancient Greece it was COOL to be bisexual. In fact the, for men, the company of men was preferable to the company of women. Society has just gone completely backwards in acceptance these last 3000 years.

    And all this talk about gay weddings reminds me of that episode of Simpsons where Homer starts his own church for gay weddings and makes stacks of money... now that gives me an idea....

    Yes, the proliferation of the Abrahamic religions, each of which deprecate homosexual acts, has demonized the practice of homosexuality far greater than any other historical factor.

    In other words, if Abraham was never born, all of our asses would probably be a bit more sore.

    And it would have been all the better, twice the fun and more the choice. You can't disagree with that.

    At least the Bible got one thing right. That is females being subservient to males.

  19. Please, we all know people who call themselves bisexuals are just gays in disguise. ;)
