Quote# 89759

When kids believe in Santa Claus there’s a naughty and nice list. Does one child get to declare I don’t believe in Santa therefore I get a gift from Santa no matter what I do, while the other child plays by the rules to get a gift from Santa? Usually the non-believing child no longer gets a gift from Santa but from mom and dad.

Marriage is a gift from God and we believers live under His law, if you don’t believe and live by Gods law, why should you get a gift of God that is for His believers? Have a civil union that isn’t a gift from God but a gift of mans law.

Does a Mathematician rant and rave and go ape-chit offended with a book containing words because it is not all numbers? Atheists and homosexuals just want to snatch the lolly from another. Miserable Nellie Olesons...the lot of them!

No no no no no! WE are the ones who are supposed to compare your god to Santa! Stop using our own arguments to debunk your stupid myths by yourself! We'll have nothing left to make fun of soon!

...the fuck are you talking about?

Oh My Dog!

No. Marriage is a legal contract. Anyone, gay or straight, should have the right to marry whoever they want.

Atheists and homosexuals just want to snatch the lolly from another.

No one is going to take your right to marry away.

Finally, a Fundie admits the equivalence of God and Santa Claus!

First, you suck at analogy. Second, that "gift from God" requires a certificate from the state to be valid.

Marriage has been around a lot longer than organized religion.

No idea what your babbling about but you get bonus points for the creativity of referencing Neilie Olsen.

Your argument would have merit if there weren't non-religious benefits bestowed by the state upon the status of being married.

Marriage predates Christianity by a very long way.

Really? You just fucking said that?

What, so atheists can't marry, either? Nobody who got married in front of a judge is married? What?

"just want to snatch the lolly from another."

Sounds much more like the behaviour of people who want marriage to be only for people like themselves.

There is no Santa Claus. And after that, this doesn't even make enough sense to argue with.

OK, they finally admit that their god is just like Santa Claus.

Does a Mathematician rant and rave and go ape-chit offended with a book containing words because it is not all numbers?

No, that's your department. Your ilk are always complaining because God is left out of this or that.

Miserable Nellie Olesons...the lot of them!

What is this, 1975? I know Little House on the Prarie is still on TV in reruns, but it hasn't been relevant to modern culture since the 70's. But then I should expect fundies to be always behind the times. They're still complaining about backwards messages in rock music and Harry Potter.

Are you saying god is as real as Santa?

When are you going to try to force Newt Gingrich to get a annulment, then? He sure as hell hasn't lived by God's laws, at least not the ones about adultery.

So many non-sequiturs and mixed metaphors, the point (if there is one) is lost on me.

So, God is a bit like... an imaginary entity used to bribe children into obedience? Is that really the metaphor you wanted to use there?

So, I guess we have established that these folks will never accept gay marriage.

But why do we have to redefine marriage? Can't we just redefine civil unions? If the law is changed to make civil unions equivalent in all way to marriage, doesn't everybody win?

"If the law is changed to make civil unions equivalent in all way to marriage, doesn't everybody win?"

No. As long as you're dividing people into groups and saying "Group A can have this, and Group 2 can have that", it's discrimination.

What you're saying is that Rosa Parks had nothing to complain about, because the back of the bus goes to the same stops as the front of the bus.

Worst argument against gay marriage ever!

I've posted this SMBC cartoon once before. But it's still the best way to explain it to these dipshits.
