Quote# 34130

This is just a ploy to bring down the Christian religion. Gay marriage becomes law. A church refuses to marry gays. ACLU sues them and sets a precedent. Now the choice for the churches are either to perform the marriages or close down, undermining the very foundations of the Bible and the religion itself. It's all part of the Communists' plot to destroy what this country was founded on. Thus ushering in their totalitarian state.

Don't be silly. It's obvious they're doing it with the fluoride in the water.

Why are us commies always to blame? Why isn't anyone paranoid of the fascists?

Hm. Do I reference mirrors, bigots in tinfoil hats, pac-man charts, or McCarthy?

EDIT: I made a whoops! Forgot to mention the founding fathers and the deism thereof.

Mike, I don't think you understand what the ACLU does. The issue is whether or not the state governments will consent to marrying gays, because believe it or not, the states not the church issues marriage licenses.

Since marriages are celebrated in a court or the city council too(and gay people probably will marry there), your plot is utterly ridiculous.

That's good, have a lollipop.

Hey. Atleast this is'nt attributed to aliens or my personal favourite The Jew... (I want to find The Jew and test out his super powers. If all the crap that he has attributed to him/her is true then he would be badass. We could fight crime in ludicrous outfits!)

To be fair, gay people once denied a church are pretty much going to go find a church that will marry them. And to be fair the "gays" have been getting married for decades. Its just that their marriages are'nt valid in the eyes of the law since marriage is pretty much a vow of exclusivity. The difference between heterosexual and homosexual marriage is that heterosexual marriage is a contract rather than a vow.

And this plot is unnecessarily Machiavellian. Look for most people a "complex plot" is killing someone with polonium. Not utilising gay marriage in a exceedingly complicated way.

You know, this was reasonable until the last two sentences. Wrong, but reasonable.

Then it just went batshit insane in a single line.

Marriage licenses are issued by the state. And, shouldn't someone inform Mike about what happened to the Communists?

1/27/2008 12:12:27 AM


Everything that contradicts must be a commie plot? Or evil Jews?

Since when do court rulings affect church doctrine?

Uh oh...they're on to our evil plan!

stalin wasn't gay.

Just thought I might drop that one in there.

Nobody's said that Churches have to marry gays

Catholic churches don't have to marry protestants, why would this be any different?

And who exactly wants the totalitarian state.

OMG! i cant believe i didnt see this before *clearly* this is the most obvious reason homosexuals want to marry, theres no way it could be just because they want the same rights as everyone else, lol

this my friends, is an example (albeit quite minor) of why the existance of soviet spys in the US still cannot justify McCarthy's red scare, because there are still people who have it in their heads that anything bad is communist, and that anyhting that has even remotely socialist connotations is communist, and will "obviously" lead to a communist government and the end of democracy :rolleyes:.

So, the next time you see someone call maccarthyism justified due to the fact that spying existed, please smack them ovedr the head with a book listing the names of everyone whos life was unfairly ruined, and of all the after effects that still exist today due to the "anything that the communists do is evil, and anyone who chooses to do those things is an evil commie" attitude that that era spawned.
