Quote# 77693

On the HGTV show "House Hunters" it seems as if 1 in 5 couples looking for a house are homosexual.

Yesterday two men were looking for larger "family home" because they are ready to adopt children. The hosts of the show mention it in such a matter-of-fact manner you have to remind yourself it's two guys, not a normal married couple.

When my beautiful cousin suddenly dumped her husband and "married" a woman in a lavish ceremony --happily attended by their parents, friends, family-- that did it for me. It was apparent our culture no longer viewed marriage as a sacred union to be respected.

"The hosts of the show mention it in such a matter-of-fact manner you have to remind yourself it's two guys, not a normal married couple."

That is because they are a normal couple. Your cognitive dissonance is showing.

Get your statistics right. It's more like one in twenty according to a recent stonewall survey.

"our culture" also has very few people who believe in Rapture prophecy and praise books they've never read

"Our culture no longer sees marriage as a sacred union to be respected"?

You mean:

- The sanctity of Britney Spears' 55 hour marriage to Jason A. Alexander?
- The sanctity of Senator John McCains' 1st marriage, who had a lot of extramarital affairs, and finally dumped his wife (who was seriously injured in an automobile accident) for his mistress (who is 18 years younger than him)?
- The sanctity of all these "Who wants to marry a millionaire" TV shows?

Yeah ... allowing straight people to marry is really damaging a sacred institution.

There is more sanctity in the relationship of some homosexual couples (those who love each other truly) than in the marriage of certain straight couples.

Marriage is a legal contract between two adults who intend to live together indefinitely.
Allowing people of different skin-color or ethnicity, or people of the same gender, to marry does not change that one iota.

A couple being ready to adopt children IS rather matter-of fact.
Why do you mention that your cousin is beautiful? Are only ugly girls allowed to be gay?

Sacred union to be respected, is it? How sacred and respected did Ted Haggard's wife feel, after he was discovered with another man?

Yes because we all know how Newt Gingerich and Jim Bakker respected the sanctity of marriage.

And can you believe that 22% of all those couples have a left handed person??? I mean...the nerve of those people. What happened to the sanctity of right handedness? What is this world coming to? Oh jeebus take me now!!!!!

How dare they! The nerve of some people to want a place to live! Just who do they think they are?

"Yesterday two men were looking for larger "family home" because they are ready to adopt children. The hosts of the show mention it in such a matter-of-fact manner you have to remind yourself it's two guys, not a normal married couple."

How dare they! The nerve of some people to want to adopt a child! Just who do they think they are?

How dare she! The nerve of some people to want to live their life the way they choose! Just who do they think they are?

How about you stop being such a busybody, Barb? Maybe you should just go fuck yourself and leave everyone else alone.

So... if she'd dumped her husband to marry a different man instead, that would have been more respectful to the sacred union of marriage?

That's most dismaying indeed. A very peculiar situation, and one crying out for a happy resolution for everybody. Why, oh why, when a whole nation is desperately in need of guidance, does it not take its lead from an expert in cultural affairs like BarbT? It makes you wonder. When an obvious guiding light stands ready and willing to offer spiritual leadership and astute advice on matters cultural, you'd think the whole damn nation would be beating a path to her front door, as it were, in order to hang in awe on her every word. But no, stubborn rationality will prevail. The odious stench of tolerant humanism. How awfully compassionate.

Still, don't give up, BarbT. Biblical horror depends on people like you. Keep plugging away, keep striving to attain the heights that you know you will eventually achieve... soon.

There. Fixed.

You fuckers don't own marriage! It's been around long before your religion, and plenty of countries have legalized gay marriage and haven't sunk into the abyss.

I have quite a few gay friends, but I'd like to single out one particular couple; we'll call them C and J for the purposes of this discussion. A month ago, they got married in Connecticut, on the anniversary of the date when they met many years before. They are probably the most caring, loving couple -- gay or straight -- I know.

Their marriage is significantly stronger than what I have with my wife. We could all learn from C and J.

I taught in a Fundy Christian school where the class of 2000 graduated with literally 75% of the students having divorced parents.

And these people are lecturing the world about the sanctity of marriage? They've got to be kidding.

"It was apparent our culture no longer viewed marriage as a sacred union to be respected."

Just the opposite. The fact that a whole class of people who have been denied marriage for centuries is now seeking that right shows that the institution is indeed highly respected.

On the HGTV show "House Hunters" it seems as if 1 in 5 couples looking for a house are homosexual.

So? Now gays can't even look for a place to live without you fundies sticking your fat noses into their business? What next? Are you going to protest them being able to eat? *remembers the fundie reaction to the French McDonald's ad* Oh, never mind.

Yesterday two men were looking for larger "family home" because they are ready to adopt children.

Good. What, you'd rather the children sit around in some orphanage with nobody to care for them? And there are TONS of orphans out there.

The hosts of the show mention it in such a matter-of-fact manner you have to remind yourself it's two guys, not a normal married couple.

I know, it sucks when you have to remind yourself to be a bigot, doesn't it? Why can't these TV shows do all of the work for us and draw devil horns on them or something, right?

When my beautiful cousin suddenly dumped her husband and "married" a woman in a lavish ceremony --happily attended by their parents, friends, family-- that did it for me.

Aw, you got jealous, didn't you?

It was apparent our culture no longer viewed marriage as a sacred union to be respected.

THAT'S what did it? I'd have thought it was any of the two week long Hollywood marriages or the high divorce rate (especially high among fundies) or the number of people that cheat on their spouses. Straight people have made marriage a joke all on their own and this was long BEFORE any serious talk of allowing gay marriage even began.

It could just be that a lot of gay couples want houses at this time, you know with several states legalizing gay marriage, allowing gay couples to finally get a house of their own. In a few years, the ratio will go down to what it is in the population as a whole, but you shouldn't get so worked up about it.

So, the whole family was happy for your cousin and shared in her happiness - except for you, you miserable, bitter, ignorant, arrogant little person.

So, your objection is that your cousin got divorced rather than that she became openly lesbian. Face it, Barb, religious people get divorced at the same or a higher rate than the non-religious.
