I wrote a longer response and deleted it just to simplify it to the Golden Rule. Do unto others as you'd have done to you. Meaning, let people live their lives in whatever way makes consenting adults happy. You'd want others to let you live your life, too.

Some fool just voted this down. Who votes down the Golden Rule? What a loser

Side: ME

Well, FromWithin is the greatest loser of this site, whether he might have done it or not.

yeah, when un-believers display the scripture ... they ALWAYS get it wrong ... typical / pfft !!

---------------------------------------------------------

Matthew 7:12 .. In everything .. therefore .. treat people the same way you want them to treat you ..

for this is the Law and the Prophets ... full context ....... and if you miss it just one time (regardless of how you are treated) / you've blown the entire thing / broken the Law and are deemed a sinner in need of salvation .... you see L&G;... the LAW teaches you of your sinful condition and is meant to lead you to Jesus Christ ... the ONLY salvation God has delivered from above

1) We don't have to be Christian to follow the concept. It doesn't matter which way the Bible precisely phrased it.

2) Even children books designed to inspire the concept in kids rephrase it multiple ways and quote versions of it from multiple world religions. Because it's a basic human concept, not something proprietary.

So basically, you're the child who can only understand it as the mandate from your single source. Congratulations, my 2 year old already grasps this lesson better than you do. Thanks

I don't think it is harmful in any way.

In fact, I wonder why some might want to argue against it. The whole constitution of marriage is a human invention, it can't prohibit us to do anything (for those who might think it intrinsically does such a thing.)

Any other argument, I can refute here.

Eg. But it's not natural! - So what? By that criteria, the entire civilisation should be disbanded. This argument is used by wannabe Cynics.

The religious text says so! - I could have a religious text say anything I want it to if I have enough power.

(IT also reduces abortion and increases adoption. The haters should be happy.)

They want reasons to not be happy, and I'm gonna give them enough reasons that they ought to be more unhappy right now than after the things I say have taken place.

But it might as well be sophistry at that point - either way, they're generally not good enough to notice. After all, they're the haters.

Damn so a fetus is a human being ! When did you come that conclusion ?

Meh? I support it but not by the means that made it legal... it should have been legislated into law by the states.

Wait. For real. Are you being serious? Are you such a federalist that you have no idea that the Constitution reserves rights to the states so that they can do just that? The gradual encroachment of the federal government on state autonomy aside, the states definitely still do have differing laws. Moreover, there's no evident reason they shouldn't be allowed to.

I'm an American. We have a Constitution, therefore I HAVE to support it. (I would anyway).

I support love over hate in ALL cases. I used to vote Republican sometimes but I found myself allergic to nuts. Couple that with all the hate and you end up a loving liberal ;<)

The Constitution is silent on the issue of marriage and it is not mentioned. Can you show me where marriage is mentioned in the Constitution ?

If the Constitution told you to discriminate would you still support it? Just because you're an American and there's a Constitution? That seems shaky, at best.

You fall in love with who you fall in love with, their genitals shouldn't effect whether you are allowed to get married to them or not. In my eyes , a gay couple has the same rights as a straight couple do. Like it or hate it, this is 2016 , we don't do discrimination anymore. I am going to bring my kids up seeing everyone as EQUAL no matter who they love, say no more.

Nowadays it is possible for homosexuals to have and raise children. In many mammals, including humans, homosexual couples raise children superior to the children raised by heterosexual couples. These two points in consideration, one should also remember that if it doesn't violate someones freedoms and you ban it, then you are just violating that persons freedoms.

I don't think you should be attacking the tolerants like that.

Though it isn't about love, I guess you want it to be. What is love?
