I can understand your personal disdain for people of the same gender having sex. I don’t really have a problem with that since like you, I am not attracted to nor interested in having sex with someone of the same sex. But where you and I differ is that you are ok with the denial of the same rights that heterosexual people enjoy based on (an only) their sexual preference. I am not. And once again, you have failed to provide a clear and compelling reason why they should be denied the same rights as heterosexual people.
I don't know what in the hell you are talkin' about.
I don't even want to KNOW
what brought you to concoct that piece of fiction!!
Whether you smoked it or shot it up, though ... you have obviously never asked
me what my opinion of same-sex couples is .... and I would thank you not to try to interpret what that's supposed to be!! 'Cause you done screwed that chit allll
I have no 'personal disdain' for gay people! I like most of the ones I know!
As people. As who they are (friends, family, acquaintances) to me. They're just like anybody else that I know. And they're good people just like everybody else. And as for their sex life ... the same applies. I couldn't care any less about what they do or who they do it to as I do about any heterosexual person - or any other human being. I'm sorry, but I just don't care!! It's not my business, I don't want it to be my business, I hope nobody makes it my business. Sex is between you're and who you're doing it to. If you're happy, I'm happy. And that's just the way that is.
Also, I am not opposed to same-sex couples being "wedded", "joined", "united" or whatever (else) they may want to call it ... I just think they should call it something else
!! IMO, "marriage" already has it's own historical and legal*
definition (*although that is the technically that would be debated in the courts if it goes that far), .. and gay couples just don't 'fit the profile!'
I am of the opinion that the meaning and significance of marriage (and subsequent family) is the coming together of one (1) man and one (1) woman in religious, moral and social commitment with the ultimate purpose of 'bearing fruit' and multiplying,
... thus (supposedly) providing an orderly way of contributing to the continuation of human kind. IMO, that's what's supposed to happen. That's the way it's been
happening for a few eons, now. And, in my personal opinion,
that's the way it should continue to happen!!
Let gay people "tie the knot", "jump the broom", "get hitched" ... again .. I'm really not that interested in their (or anybody else's) relationship to give that much of a damn!! I hope they're happy with one another. In the words of the great songstress Gladys Knight ... Everybody needs love.
But .. I do object to same-sex couple wanting to redefine the definition of the word "marriage" ... which is what they are demanding to do. And I say, "No, I don't think so!" I don't have to agree with what they want. I have my own mind.
I am entitled to my own opinion. And just because you disagree with it, doesn't mean it's wrong. It simply means we don't agree. I may not make an argument that makes you agree with me or that you even understand... but, that doesn't make your opinion or way of thinking the right way of thinking. Again, it simply means we fall on different sides of the coin.
A quick example: Some people are vehemently opposed to the death penalty. While I (and I believe you agree) feel that there are some cases such as child rape/abuse/murder, (or other heinous crimes) - in which the guilty party should be deep fried like a piece of catfish!!!
Now, personally, I understand many of the reasons that anti-death penalty advocates give for not wanting to put any convicted criminals to death. Some of 'em are pretty good, too, and I even agree with two or three!! Others are stretching and far-fetched and not eve deserving of consideration, IMO. But I wouldn't look down on any of them or their strongly held beliefs. I don't agree with their rationale ... but, (and unlike many of them in reciprocation), I wouldn't call them names, think of them as depraved or brain-damaged people for their views.
We simply don't see things the same way. And personally, I don't think there's anything particularly wrong with that.
