If same-sex marriages are "impossible", then why don't you just let the government "try" to recognize them already and STFU?
What's the point in worrying about or trying to stop the impossible?

I thought gravity was 'just a theory' like TOE?

Disregard this; I suck cocks.

Why put your self into a position where you can so easily fail like that?
Oh yeah, you dont like people questioning your authority..just like all the other freepers. Do as I say, not as I do, and dont ask questions or suffer my wrath.

Well ... the governments of The Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, Sweden and Norway somehow managed to allow it.
It was much easier than one might think. And these countries still work very fine. No instant breakdown of society there, no "Sodom and Gomorrha". Actually, there was nearly no change in daily life, except that: Homosexual people now can and do marry.

Then why is it already a reality in ten nations and several jurisdictions within the United States?
12/30/2010 5:40:54 AM
But gravity is only a theory.
12/30/2010 5:44:23 AM
Canada (and reality) say otherwise.

Yes, writing a certificate with two people's names on it is just as difficult as building a gravity-nullification device.

Sorry, you're wrong. But thanks for playing.
Marriage is not purely the province of religion, let alone purely the province of Christianity. Marriage can simply be a legal document. Ceremonies to recognise a joining of two people existed long before Christianity was invented as did homosexuality.
While a Christian gay marriage may be argued to be impossible (assuming one is willing to take the word of some dudes who, a couple of thousand years ago, said and wrote a bunch of stuff they claimed was inspired by a god), a gay marriage is not impossible in and of itself.
And who's to say that this god hasn't changed its mind? The Christian god clearly changed its mind about a bunch of things between the old and new testament. Plenty of things have changed in Catholicism over the years, things that apparently came down from their god by way of the Pope. But there are also things that supposedly came from that god that the Catholic church doesn't want people to know, choosing to reveal only some of the documents for construction of the Bible for instance. Perhaps the Christian god has changed its mind about homosexuality, but everyone to whom the message has been passed is simply bigoted and so just isn't passing it on?

Yet gay people are still getting married to other gay people.

If it is impossible, then how did my country, and many other, manage to allow it?
We're still here, heterosexuals are still marrying, no fire and brimstone from the skies.
The president can change fewer things than you realize, little unlearner. He's far from omnipotent.

Is it impossible because God itself would intervene?
12/30/2010 6:23:31 AM
Seems pretty possible, since it's already happening in Iowa and Massachusetts as well as in some other countries.
I swear, do these people live in a freakin' bubble or something?
12/30/2010 6:32:58 AM
For Free Republic, this really isn't so fundy as it is stupid.
I just wish he'd qualify what he means by impossible.
12/30/2010 7:13:08 AM
The marriage itself is, of course, not impossible at all.
If you refer to the act of procreation as part of marriage, then you must be willing to negate any marriages of people who are unable to bear children. You can't have it both ways, dickhead.
12/30/2010 7:17:40 AM
Keep telling yourself that. It doesn't make it any more true.
12/30/2010 7:20:29 AM
Miscegenation is impossible. Lincoln and the nigger lovers can not change this any more than they can change gravity.*
... Oh, wait.
* Sorry, I woke up thinking it was 1860 for some reason.

Yanno, the same things were said about marriages between different ethnic groups, and they were wrong then, and wrong now.
12/30/2010 7:34:30 AM
@Anon: True, our societies aren't that much different since our government allowed same-sex marriage. I just miss our good old gravity sometimes though, this whole new "equal attraction between bodies without regard to mass or density" just isn't my thing...

You know what else is impossible? UNICORNS.
