Quote# 87464

The Minnesota Family Council says it will introduce an amendment banning same-sex marriage, civil unions and domestic partnerships in Minnesota in the next few days. The group announced the new amendment push at a press conference with fundamentalist religious leaders on Tuesday.

Those leaders put forward a multifaith diatribe against gay and lesbian relationships stating that should gays get the right to marry, the world would end.

“If everyone is a gay, this world will cease to exist in 10 years,” said Ikram ul-Huq, the imam and religious director of the Muslim Community Center of Bloomington.

"The Minnesota Family Council says it will introduce an amendment banning same-sex marriage, civil unions and domestic partnerships in Minnesota in the next few days. The group announced the new amendment push at a press conference with fundamentalist religious leaders on Tuesday."

Fundamentalist religious leaders? You don't say!

Who else would it have been?

"Those leaders put forward a multifaith diatribe against gay and lesbian relationships stating that should gays get the right to marry, the world would end."

Were they then told to shut the fuck up and get back to the Bronze Age?

"'If everyone is a gay, this world will cease to exist in 10 years,' said Ikram ul-Huq, the imam and religious director of the Muslim Community Center of Bloomington."

1: Why would everyone be gay?

2: Why would the world "cease to exist" and why would it take 10 years? Gay people can reproduce, you know. With today's technology, the pair wouldn't even have to "do it" to conceive, you jackass. Hell, they wouldn't even have to meet one another.

Someone want to explain to me how allowing gay people to get married will turn everyone on the planet gay? I know I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I just can't understand this one. Or maybe the imam just doesn't understand that allowing something doesn't mean forcing everyone to do it.

@Joe Mama:

This is how it works.

When gay marriage is allowed the children of that time see it and say"EEEEWWWW!! ICKY GAYS MAKING ICKY MARRIAGE!!!"

When they are older the idea of marriage will be associated with icky marriage in their minds. Not wanting to be involved in something so icky and perverted, they refuse to be married.

I swear this is what they really think. They try not to say it out loud where the heathens can hear because they know it makes their opposition to marriage look retarded but they really believe this.

"Or maybe the imam just doesn't understand that allowing something doesn't mean forcing everyone to do it. "

It's the same with christian fundies. They want to impose by force their behavior and they imagine their opponents want to do the same. Christian fundies will require everyone be christian, muslim fundies will require everyone be muslim and gay is some kind of religion that will require everyone to be gay.

You fucking morons never seem to realize that simply because you give gays the right to marry will not automatically convert every single heterosexual on the planet to homosexuality.

SEXUAL ORIENTATION DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY

Given how many gays in denial (particularly politicians) have kids while maintaining their cover, this is the worst brand of hypocrisy.

Nobody wants EVERYONE to be gay. However, we do want those people who are gay to be treated with the same basic human dignity as people who are straight.

10 years? One would think almighty retribution would be a little more prompt.

It's interesting that these mutually-exclusive groups will come together for a bit of homo-hating.

Usually they will keep well away from each other (except of course if there's money involved!)

Even assuming that- by some 'miracle'- legalizing same-sex marriage DID make literally every human being on the planet gay... it still wouldn't end the world. Not in 10 years, not in 100, not in 1000. The human race might end (assuming we all just forget how to perform in-utero fertilizations), but the world itself will be just fine. Arguably better, in fact.

A) It would take longer than that for everyone to die of old age.
B) It will never be the case that everyone is gay. Certainly not as a result of legal homosexual marriage.

Please explain exactly how the world would end once we allow two persons of the same sex to publicly pledge their lifelong love. Would this cause a permanent change in human estrogen and testosterone levels? Do you care to explain the mechanism of this change, and how the legal status of well, anything, really, can affect which gender anyone is attracted to?

Besides, by your reckoning, the end of the world is already overdue, since the Netherlands have legally recognized same-sex marriage in 2001.

Gays already have the right to marry in several places, and the world hasn't ended. Also, even if everyone was gay, humans could still reproduce through artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization. There should be no way that you would be stupid or uninformed enough not to no that what you are spewing is a pack of lies.

if everyone on the earth was a clone of Ikram, the human species will go extinct too. that means that it's immoral to be Ikram and that he is an abomination.
