Your way off on this one.
YOU have no right to tell me what is MORAL or how I should live my life, as long (and this is the important part) my actions do not infringe upon your life or your property.
So is it the ok for you to marry your sister? Incest is immoral yet it does not infringe apon anyone else. We live in a society based on morals.
Gay marriage, but some Activist Liberal Judges decide to make
it a Law anyway?? You want Gay Marriage fine..But then lets
make it fair to EVERYONE!! Mormons can have more than 1 wife!
A Guy can marry his sister or his Dog or Horse as well!! Who are
you to say Love can only exist between 1 species!! [/b][/quote]
Lets be clear here: Marriage in the USA, for all it's religious history, is nothing more than a personal Legal Contract. If someone (or a group of someones) whants to enter into such a contract (called Marriage or by some other name), what difference does it make to you? They suffer all the same drawbacks if the contract is broken.
And no, the Horse and Dog argument is just stupid Sav. The Animal does not posess Human Intelligent and therefore cannot grant consent (Heck, even Humans under 18 cannot do that). So please, if we are to debate, try to keep it realistic, ok?
