In a free country, if Tina wants to marry Sally, why shouldn't they be allowed that right?

All peoples should have the freedom to follow their heart's desire without being ridiculed or made to feel as misfits by the narrow minded prejudices of the sanctimonious brigade.

Here is a customised version of Martin Niemoller's quote for the self righteous bigots to consider.

First they came for the socialists, but I did not speak out because I am not a socialist,

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak because I am not a trade unionist,

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak because I am not Jewish,

Then they came for the LGBTS, and I did not speak out as I am not included in that group,

Then they came for me, and ther was no one left to speak out.

Once again, you lie. I am refering to consenting adults. I don't go for anyone under the age of 30. No exceptions.

There is absolutely no valid reason that in a free country, consenting adults (provided of course they are not related) should not be allowed to lawfully marry.

But.

We must take into account that this falls squarely along the lines of separation of church and state. While this means that the church should have absolutely no say in whether or not gay marriage should be recognized by the government, this also means that the church has no obligation to recognize or perform any marriage they do not percieve as valid, whether gay, straight or other. Such is outlined plainly by the first amendment, that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion nor limit the free practice thereof. Since the only modern arguments against gay marriage are religious in nature, the government is obligated to recognize and perform all marriage requests that meet the criteria in the first paragraph. However, your right for that marriage to be recognized ends squarely where everyone else's right to practice their own religion begins, no matter how illogical those religious beliefs.

And if a person working for the government- with rare exceptions to include military chaplains, but not distributors of marriage liscences- is unable to perform their duty because of religious conflict, then it is their lawful and moral obligation to seek employment elsewhere.

I completely disagree and here is my supporting evidence:-

That Peculiar Persian Potato Incident
Side: Bigoted answer.

In a free country, men should be able to have 30 wives. People should be able to marry their pets!

People should be able to marry consenting children.

What also comes with freedom is common sense. Biology teaches us that two women or two men having sex is not the way our bodies are designed. Why would any intelligent rational society sanction unnatural unions with marriage?

Our children deserve to learn the natural order to life before they are brainwashed by the Left.

We teach the Science of Biology to our children for a reason. LGBT groups spit on Science!

I am refering to consenting adult human monogamous couples. I do not support polygamy, incent, pedophilia, or prostitution, I just support consenting adult marriage, between two lovers. You don't have the right to force your beliefs on other people. Marriage is a basic human right for consenting adults.

So was FromWithin, when he mentioned a couple of sisters both of whom have reached the age of consent. Why are you denying them the right to marry ?

You must have missed it somehow but did you not know that the Democrats say the 14th Amendment allows gay marriage. Mommy forget to give you your meds today or is it Google is foreign to you.
