The homosexual marriage movement is an attack on human rights in the name of human rights. It seeks to disenfranchise voters on the legal definition of marriage and to force unwilling citizens to provide discriminatory benefits and subsidies for a lifestyle choice most find to be disgusting and damaging.

The right to visit ones partner in hospital or the right to fair treatment in inheritance is NOT discriminatory. It is a basic human right of all loving couples.

For the last time: the majority has no right to remove rights from the minority because of its own personal prejudices. You have no right to vote in a reduction of rights for others. That is mob rule and I'm pretty sure your constitution protects the people from it. Hence the overturning of Prop. 8.

Whatever you think of homosexuals, what they do and what benefits they receive does not affect you in the least bit. Hence, your opinion here does not fucking matter.

These benefits and subsidies- of married couples-... are a major reason why your argument supports the rights of homosexuals to marry each other.
Come on now- do you really want your daughter to marry a gay man?

"a lifestyle choice most find to be disgusting and damaging"

Christianity?

Being gay isn't a choice, shit-for-brains.

When you can shown that allowing homosexuals to marry has any negative effect whatsoever on heterosexuals and their right to marry, then you can whine. Until then, just shut the fuck up and mind your own bloody business.

Yes because marriage is a human right, not straight humans, but all humans?

So by that logic, gay's are not human?

wow

Yo, Jim, I'm really happy for you, and imma let you finish, but Fred Phelps is one of the best homophobes of all time!

So, it's a human right to not allow others their human rights? How the hell does that work? And how is it discriminatory to allow everyone the same rights? Is it opposite day and nobody told me?

Yeah, well I hate providing discriminatory benefits for big corporations and the richest Americans and subsidies for Bush's choice to start a war that I find disgusting and damaging. But I pay my taxes without a peep because that's the price of living in this country.

In other words, suck it up and shut it up, loser!

That's the most ridiculous and convoluted argument I've heard since, "Our all-powerful God came to earth to sacrifice himself to himself to circumvent a rule he himself made."

Congratulations, you're FUBAR!

How does gays marrying mean more work for you? How does anyone getting married mean more work for you unless they... are... related... ahh... I think I've found the problem, you're cousin is getting married and asked you to help and you're just too fucking lazy

Excuse me?

"It seeks to disenfranchise voters on the legal definition of marriage and to force unwilling citizens to provide discriminatory benefits and subsidies for a lifestyle choice most find to be disgusting and damaging."

Nobody gives a fuck what "most people" think. Everyone has the innate right to equal treatment under all laws (with certain exceptions for age, mental status, etc).

Whaaah! I have the right to treat people unfairly!

The fundie anti-marriage movement is an attack on human rights in the name of human rights. It seeks to limit the human rights of some people that they find icky.

The miscegenation movement is an attack on human rights in the name of human rights. It seeks to disenfranchise voters on the legal definition of marriage and to force unwilling citizens to provide discriminatory benefits and subsidies for a lifestyle choice most find to be disgusting and damaging.

Same shit, different decade.

Wait- gay marriage is an attack on human rights by using human rights?

The whack logic, it burns!!!!!

If "most" find it disgusting and damaging, how come more and more countries adopt gender-neutral marriage laws?

I find the boxing and mud-wrestling lifestyles to be kind of disgusting, and the former definitely damaging. I'm not trying to outlaw them anyway. People are allowed to make stupid* choices with their life; as long as they don't harm others, it's their business.

* The "stupid" was aimed at hitting each other until one becomes unconscious (i.e. boxing). Not at homosexuals, although homosexuals, just as heterosexuals, sometimes make stupid choices when selecting a partner.

I'd wager nasty divorces have more of an effect on you than gay marriages. Rising house prices due to increased demand (a couple who lived in one house now lives in two). Increased pollution as the couple now has to travel more to see any kids. Besides, your friend Jesus kind of had a thing against divorce. You know: "what God hath joined together let no man tear asunder".

The homosexual marriage movement is an attack on human rights in the name of human rights.
Ah yes, the cry of "you're infringing on my right to impose myself on others! Stop discriminating against me!"

It seeks to disenfranchise voters on the legal definition of marriage...
So when do we get to vote on your marriage? Or how about we vote as to whether to turn your house into a Meth Clinic. Or is voting on rights only okay when they aren't your rights?

...and to force unwilling citizens to provide discriminatory benefits and subsidies for a lifestyle choice most find to be disgusting and damaging.
First, me having to pay for your benefits is fine, but you having to pay for mine is reprehensible? Second, how is it discrimintory. You have the same right to marry someone of the same sex now that I do, it's not my fault you don't want to (funny how that argument is invalid once it's flipped around...) Third, you had better not smoke, drink or eat trans-fats. Those acts are far more detrimental to your health than homosexuality could ever hope to be, yet you people fight tooth and nail for the right to be wrong about them.

Jim - this may come as a surprise to you - I don't give a flying fuck what you think or want! If I did, your stupid mythology would have been Verboten and you'd be in a padded cell under heavy medication.

The attack on the homosexual marriage movement is an attack on human rights. It seeks to disenfranchise voters on their right to change the legal definition of marriage and to force unwilling citizens to provide discriminatory withholding of benefits and subsidies for what is not a mere lifestyle choice. It is beside the point that a minority (globally) of troglodytes find this to be unacceptable.

OK, then, if we held a vote and a majority voted to outlaw Christianity because people find it disgusting and damaging, would that be OK? Funny how it's always the people in the majority who are willing to vote on the rights of the people in the minority.

How the hell is it an attack on human rights to extend rights to others?
