[Anti-gay marriage ad from Washington.]

Our position is not about hate, its about love. Its about having a true consideration for the next generations future; its about keeping the teaching of morals and preserving the most fundamental part of human relations, the original intent of marriage, ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN, no other way. Were not denying rights; we are rejecting an attempt to redefine marriage... In May of 2004, Gay marriage was legalized in Scandinavia..

What Happened..? Did you know... That year alone suicide rates doubled. The illegal drug rate increased 19 times. And to say the least the traditional picture of Marriage being One Man One Women was completely shattered. What about our country? Did you know..77% of ALL aids cases in the United States are related to homosexuality. Also, recent news reports indicate that the legalization of gay marriage will start a movement that will result in YOUR CHILDREN being taught about gay marriage as a normal form of life. Are we willing to let this happen? Whose future is really at stake?

Didn't Stephen Colbert already address this ad?

Uh, Scandanvia is 3 countries. Not one.

Insta-FAIL. Just add statistics.

In May of 2004, Gay marriage was legalized in Scandinavia..

Lie. Scandinavia consists of 3 (or 5, or 7) countries, depending on how you count. They certainly don't have common laws on marriage. Several (Denmark, Norway, Sweden that I know of) have legalised same-sex marriage, but certainly not at the same time.

That year alone suicide rates doubled.

[Citation needed]

The illegal drug rate increased 19 times.

[Citation needed]

And citation really fucking needed on how it was caused by allowing same-sex marriage. But since you don't even know what country you're talking about, I'm not holding my breath.

And to say the least the traditional picture of Marriage being One Man One Women was completely shattered.

Actually, it's the other way around. The reason several Scandinavian countries have passed same-sex marriage laws with no great debate is that nobody really thinks it's a big deal. The "traditional picture" you paint is no more shattered now than it was 10 years ago.

Whose future is really at stake?

Yours, as a hateful bigot. Or at least your chances of being considered anything but a hateful bigot.

Citations desperately needed. Pulling random percentages out of your butt doesn't count.

"Our position is not about hate, its about love."

Really now?

"Were not denying rights"

Apparantly you are. Other legal unions gays can get into do not provide the same legal rights as marriage. If civil unions and domestic partnerships did provide all the legal benefits to gays that a married couple would get this would be a different story.

"What Happened..? Did you know... That year alone suicide rates doubled. The illegal drug rate increased 19 times."

[Citation needed]

Oh, and correlation does not imply causation.

"Did you know..77% of ALL aids cases in the United States are related to homosexuality."

Engaging in risky sexual behaviors with hundreds of anonymous partners is not synonomous with homosexuality.

"Also, recent news reports indicate that the legalization of gay marriage will start a movement that will result in YOUR CHILDREN being taught about gay marriage as a normal form of life."

Well, they do have a right to know that same-sex relationships exist, and that gay people are just that: people. Not "filthy sodomites", "faggots", "subhumans", etc.

"Are we willing to let this happen?"

Equal rights for gays? Yes I am.

"Whose future is really at stake?"

I guess the religious peoples. Well, as far as being able to promote their intolerance.

DID YOU KNOW... That 84 percent of statistics are pulled straight out of someone's ass?

11/3/2009 4:49:34 PM



There is no such country as Scandinavia. And none of the nations in that area of the world legalized gay marriage during that time period. THis is all blatantly made up.

Well, outrageous lies helped stop homosexual marriages in California, why not in Washington?

Hrm. Not as funny as the anti-ref-71 ad I heard on the radio that basically said "The economy sucks, so why are we voting on gay rights? Vote no on 71!"

Though the 'sanctity of marriage' people are also funny, because this is about domestic partnership. Proving that it's NOT just about the word 'marriage' like they claim, when they say we should just be happy with civil unions/domestic partnerships.

"its about keeping the teaching of morals and preserving the most fundamental part of human relations, the original intent of marriage,"

You mean where one man marries as many women as he can afford, like King Solomon with his 700 wives and 400 concubines?

Didn't Stephen Colbert already address this ad? Yeah, to be exact, he said: "Terrifying. And that ad is no less terrifying just because there is no country called Scandinavia, none of the countries in Scandinavia passed gay marriage laws in 2004, and the statistics on suicide and drug use are made up." (And this was for all of 3 sentences. Clearly, they just didn't care.)

"Our position is not about hate, its about love."

No, it's about hate.

You hate the fact that homosexuals can love each other. It makes you feel icky thinking about what those nasty people do with each other.

You hate the fact that many members of society aren't creeped out by homosexuals.

You hate the fact that you might even have some gay feelings buried deep inside you.

And you hate the fact that homosexuals might find happiness without burying their beings joining your moronic sect.

Same Bunch, 50 years ago.

/Our position is not about hate, its about love./

*snorts* Keep telling yourself that to make yourself feel better. Just like abusive boyfriends/husbands tell themselves that they didn't REALLY mean to beat up their girlfriends/wives, it was all out of LOVE, surely!

/Its about having a true consideration for the next generations future;/

Homosexuals are part of the next generation's future, too, but you have no consideration for them, their rights, or their feelings.

/about keeping the teaching of morals and preserving the most fundamental part of human relations, the original intent of marriage, ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN, no other way./

Tell that to Jacob, King David, and King Solomon, you twits.

/Were not denying rights;/

First of all, it's "we're," not "were." Second of all, I highly doubt you would stand by that statement if the shoe was on the other foot. How would you like it if you couldn't get married, couldn't adopt, and could be fired, harassed, or beaten up just for being straight?

/we are rejecting an attempt to redefine marriage.../

*patiently* Opponents of interracial marriage said the same thing. They weren't right back then and you aren't right now.

/In May of 2004, Gay marriage was legalized in Scandinavia../

Scandinavia is not a country. The term refers to a region in Europe that is composed of several countries, each with their own laws.

/What Happened..? Did you know... That year alone suicide rates doubled. The illegal drug rate increased 19 times./

And you know this...how?

/And to say the least the traditional picture of Marriage being One Man One Women was completely shattered./

Really? It wasn't "shattered" when the FLDS polygamist cult in Texas introduced a new way to redefine marriage, one that said, "One Man, One Underage Girl" or "One Man, Many Underage Girls?" It wasn't "shattered" by the high divorce rate? It wasn't shattered by the presence of single-parent households? Get a grip, monogamous heterosexual marriages are still alive and well, and they always will be. Homosexuals having the ability to marry will not have any effect whatsoever on that.

/What about our country? Did you know..77% of ALL aids cases in the United States are related to homosexuality./

If AIDS was humanized, it would be laughing in your stupid faces right now, because it doesn't care about who it infects. Contrary to your opinion, AIDS is NOT an exclusively "gay disease." It does not care who its victims are: gay, straight, male, female, black, white, young, old, etc. So, even if your statistics were true, that would mean absolutely nothing in the whole grand scheme of things.

/Also, recent news reports indicate that the legalization of gay marriage will start a movement that will result in YOUR CHILDREN being taught about gay marriage as a normal form of life./

*GASP!* The horror! Children will learn that there are people different from them! They were be forced to incorporate such corrupting, insidious concepts such as diversity, acceptance, and compassion, just as they were when interracial marriage was legalized! They won't become prone to attacking their classmates that have gay parents anymore and then you losers won't have a stupid excuse for gays not being allowed to adopt! My heavens, whatever shall we do?

/Are we willing to let this happen?/

Heck yeah! XD

/Whose future is really at stake?/

The future of homosexual Americans, because it is THEIR lives, THEIR options, and THEIR rights that you are seeking to control. This is not about YOU. It is about THEM. They have nothing to do with you, so shove off and leave them alone.
