Should there be a universally defined right to marriage including gay marriage?

Yes

Marriage is about two consenting adults not related who are in love, and want to be married. Marriage is a basic human right, and saying it is like pedos, or incest people, is homophobic and wrong. I am bisexual and am only sexually attracted to consenting adults, who are NOT related to me.

Marriage is about two consenting adults not related who are in love - adopting such a definition would be a gift to incest rights groups, because it would allow them to make the claim that their rights are being violated by that very definition.

Wtf? So you support incest but not homosexuality?

Wow. Now that's a right winger if ever I met one.

Any such definition would either allow for incestious marriage, OR contain provisions which would specifically ban marriage between close relatives. The latter would create an opportunity for incest rights activists to campaign for a truly "equal" definition. Which would possivbly create a precedent that could be used by other sex rights groups to stiil further the definition, removing other restrictions like the number of participants.

Nonsense.

Marriage is the coming together of a consensual couple, and gay marriage activists in no way advocate for incest. Conflating the two is a moronic endeavour. It shows a profound lack of ability to discern the boundaries of this social movement.

Marriage is the coming together of a consensual couple - this definition of marriage does not exclude marriage between close relatives

gay marriage activists in no way advocate for incest - I never said they were.

Try to actually read my post before commenting.

Tell me Brit do the Muslims you support have any boundaries when it comes to gay marriage. Go ahead and spin it you idiot.

A universal but limited right to marry would be "every consenting adult has the right to marry else otherwise prohibited by law". Each prohibition would have to be justified based on it infringing some other right.

Thank you for actually adressing the debate question. Yes, that would be the proper legal definition. But this raises another question: which specific rights would be violated if a consenting gay incestious couple was allowed to marry?

For Progressive extremists on the Left, rights are confined to their Special interest groups only.

This LGBT hysteria is purely politics. It's big money and votes to Democrats from LGBT lobbies.

Who in their right mind would be so concerned about forcing every State to change their marriage laws, were it not big money and votes to their political goals.

When it comes to our religious freedoms and rights, you will notice how these same Progressives scream "SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE"!!!

NO COMMUNITY HAS THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE A PRAYER AT BEGINNING F SCHOOL DAY!!!

NO COMMUNITY HAS A RIGHT TO CHOOSE TO DISPLAY A NATIVITY SCENE ON PUBLIC GROUNDS!!!

BIG BROTHER WILL TELL EVERY COMMUNITY WHAT WILL BE ALLOWED!!!

These paranoid anti Christian bigots scream how no one should be offended by seeing a religious symbol on pubic grounds, but it is OK to offend entire States by forcing them to sanction LGBT agendas that affect our Culture, our Churches, our children, and every part of our lives.

Their hypocritical double standards are sickening. The Left is clearly at war with our nation's Christian heritage, and are using every unnatural sexual orientation they can find to divide America into factions.

The Left constantly tries to judge Christians as homophobes (a complete lie), and doing so to demonize people for their beliefs. The Left judges any Bible believing Christian, calling them fundies, zealots, etc. for merely believing what their scriptures says. HANG THEM! HANG THEM BIBLE BELIEVING CHRISTIANS!

If you give into the Left, you will be praised as a real Christian who will sanction anything the State tells you to sanction. The Bible is very clear about homosexuality, bisexuality, etc., but to be accepted as a good new age Christian, you must first deny God's word and worship at the alter of political correctness.

The Left tries to create controversy at every turn, pitting Americans against each other, pitting religions against each other, even to the point of disrespecting our flag. This is all their master plan to turn America into a Godless Sodom and Gomorrah.

That is another lie, from a well know liar. If you don't stop lying, I will report you to the Anti Defamation League.

In fairness the Anti Defamation League are liars themselves. It's an Israeli right wing front. You should read some of Noam Chomsky's criticism about them.

It amazes me that if you do not read my words, then how could you rationally find fault with them?

Are you saying that you are an anti Christian bigot, who simply lashes out at a person for being Conservative or Christian, without even reading their words?
