Quote# 51885

But imagine some stranger came knocking on the door of your house and asked if he could move in and live with you. How much would you welcome him? You would certainly see him as "the other," and in many ways he is. He is not part of your family.

The request of gays to be "married" might be similar, even for a tolerant person like myself. The request to be married is a request to move into my "house"--the order of my society that has been traditional for thousands of years.

Bad analogy, fucktard.
I wouldn't let a stranger live with me because:
1.) I don't have room for another person here.
2.) He might try to hurt me.

There's not a limited number of marriages available, and gays getting married has no potential to harm anyone.

In conclusion,

Epic logic fail.

"The request of gays to be 'married' might be similar"
But it's NOT. It MIGHT be, that doesn't mean it IS. You're an idiot.

"The request to be married is a request to move into my 'house'"
Do you own marriage? Are you related to all maried people? If not, shut up.

Yup 1960: The request of blacks and whites to be "married" might be similar, even for a tolerant person like myself. The request to be married is a request to move into my "house"--the order of my society that has been traditional for thousands of years.

Traditional? Like Native American tradition? Like how they were no strangers to gay marriage? Good.

AC: Yeah, except that you'll probably never see them and the house not owned by you, but by the state. Aside from that, just the same.

These anti gay arguements are getting worse and worse.

Stranger coming over my house is to married...

What the gay fuck?

I don't like intolerant, religious douches in my "house". So, if I came to your abode, dragged you to the airport, and sent you on a one-way trip to Iran, you'd be fine with that, right?

Would'nt jebuus welcome anyone in its house ? What would he do ?

In my house, we welcome guests and show them hospitality -- "other" or not.

11/10/2008 4:25:55 AM



No, because married people can buy THEIR OWN HOUSE. TOGETHER. Alone, away from me.

I am a straight married woman and I can assure you that nothing about my marriage or my feelings for my husband will change if gays can get married. Absofuckinglutely nothing.

God's house is not big enough for everyone?

"...the order of my society that has been traditional for thousands of years. "

Thus women are still property, whites and blacks can't marry, one man marrying many women is okay, and divorce is illegal.

Gotcha.

Liked Mayhem's comment: "I don't like intolerant, religious douches in my "house". So, if I came to your abode, dragged you to the airport, and sent you on a one-way trip to Iran, you'd be fine with that, right?"

No.
No, it isn't.
Not in the least.

I just caught the last part of "Guess who's coming to dinner" on TCM today. That would be an apt analogy.

Or maybe a stranger moving into your neighbourhood. I mean they're not moving into your home now are they. Well maybe if it's a boomerang kid who decides to come home with his spouse.

So if it's been performed a certain way for a thousand years, it's right and the only way. I tell you what, if you came knocking on my door, I'd kick you in the face and tell you to fuck off. I would never let filth like you into my house.

So you think gay people are mooching hobos?

Allegory for Jesus

Xenophobia at its finest. They aren't asking to move into your house, they asking to move into your neighborhood. And, just like you and your predecessors have done for decades, you refuse to let the white picket fence be breached.

As if gays would ever want to live in your trailer park anyway.

You've known us (being gay people) for millenia now.

We are your more than your neighbors.

I can see why you would be against gay marriage if you believe that it means they have to move into your house.

Please be assured that they will not be moving into your house and then shut the fuck up on the subject as it has nothing to do with you.
