Against, but I say ‘you do you, and I’ll do me’ and in the end God will judge them. Till then, don’t hit on me.

on March 21, 2015

It’s not just “them” that God will judge…

on March 30, 2015

Not worried about being judgeed by God, until someone can prove he exists.

on March 18, 2016

Well alcomaholic let’s hear you prove how he does not exist…

on May 25, 2017

It’s not his job to prove that he doesn’t exist. It’s your job to prove that he does.

Should we not be allowed love .?

on August 12, 2017

I believe people can do what they want. As for the god argument let me shed some light, God loves everyone regardless of sin and he sees all sin as equal. You have sex before marriage, steal, kill, eat to much, cheat, no matter what you do or how bad it is we all get judged so get off your high horse and know what you’re talking about before you speak or type

So long as they are held to the same standards of divorce.  Welcome to equality.  Adam is going to be pissed paying Steve alimony while Steve screws four of their friends.

If your argument against gay marriage is because the bible says it’s worng, then you have no argument. Quoting fiction does not justify an argument.

on August 11, 2015

You can’t just broadly say the bible is fiction when you literally have no idea if it is. Marriage should be between a man and a woman, and even if you disagree with the bible our bodies have been built for marriage between a man and woman. Don’t go out trying to act like you know what your talking about when you don’t know shit.

on August 11, 2015

Our bodies have evolved over thousands of years. It was not just made for procreation. Yes, the bible is fiction. Believing something is real, because you was told as a child you’d burn if you didn’t believe it, doesn’t make it real. Keeping two people from getting married and being happy because of your primitive mindset  is not fair to those people.

on January 28, 2017

Saying that using the bible as a justification for why same sex marriage is wrong is not a valid argument. Until you can fully prove that the Bible is all fiction you cannot tell others that they have no premise to disapprove same sex marriage based upon it. When was it ever guaranteed that life would be fair to those people? We have much more important problems in this world to worry about. Also based upon history-which is far from fiction- marriage was ALWAYS intended to be between ONE MAN & ONE WOMAN.

on May 8, 2017

well, the idea of a marriage between a man and woman is solely due to the fact that the pair can reproduce, making more human beings, increasing our population as a species, but considering our condition in today’s world, we have a huge population, and clearly we are the most dominating species on earth, despite insects and many animals being larger in population. I think, it’s okay to have same sex marriage, at the end of the day, they don’t even add anything to our population!!!and those using religion to put forward their view on same sex marriage, where was religion before modern man?? and many religious texts mention about same sex marriages in the past.

 

on May 25, 2017

Exactly, because a man and a woman can reproduce and not two men and two women, it was/is intended for a man and woman to be married since the beginning of human existence in order to keep our species to continue to grow and not become extinct. You are correct in saying that same sex partners do not add anything to our population, so then what is the purpose of them getting married if you said and I quote, “well, the idea of a marriage between a man and woman is solely due to the fact that the pair can reproduce, making more human beings, increasing our population…?” I do not and will not agree with same sex marriage because I do not believe in doing what feels good but what is good. Before modern man, religion existed when everything that exists was being created by God but human beings are a species like no other so with the introduction of humans, came the introduction of religion to humans once there was a desire to know how we came to be. Many of the texts that you mentioned are based on the premise of greek mythology that was the main “religious” based thing that early civilizations depended on for direction. Thus, religion has always existed but in different forms. There were same sex relations because it was taught through the story of Zeus and the other people considered gods whom of which the people had nothing else to reference for guidance. So, when Christianity came along and people began to realize their wrongs, they began to turn away from them. Just like all humans-even today- people make mistakes and when they realize them more often then not they try to correct that mistake.

on September 26, 2017

Honestly I just dont agree. You may say the Bible is fiction all you want, but the people in this were real. They arent fiction characters, and neither was Jesus. Whether you believe he was the son of god is up to you but I do. Look at it from this way, a Man and Women were created for each other, look at how our bodies were made and function. We evolved to be able to reproduce so we don’t go extinct. Why should there be same sex marriage when scientifaclly our bodies were never meant to function for that certain way?  Yes you may argue all you want about how Im wrong and the bible is complete fiction, but do some research. The Bible has true historical facts. Whether you believe them or not, I do. And If you don’t agree fine, argue with me. But I will still uphold my same answer. I disagree. God loves us all I believe that fully, and he’s not going to send them to hell but he will judge accordingly to who believes in him. Everyone sins. Everyone. That doesnt mean we are all damned to hell.

I’m against same sex marriage. Marriage should only be between a man and woman.

on February 27, 2015

Why?

on February 28, 2015

Why? There shouldn’t be any need for an explanation. If you don’t agree there’s no use of even discussing it.

This is so perfect… what a cartoon mind you have. 

Pick up a book. Learn to read. Get some knowledge. …and then maybe one day you can remove your drool cup and play with the smart people. Until then… lol.

That’s because ZenPoop’s anus is used as another man’s “nightly deposit box” that he’s so offended by my answer.

on February 28, 2015

Hey ZenPoop, any other idiots come out of your litter? For anyone else that has to read your boring, stilted, nonsensical replies, we can only wish your father had worn a rubber. You really are a retroactive abortion.

on March 19, 2016

It’s nothing to do with you anyway so that’s fine! No one cares about your opinion as your closed minded and stupid to be frank.

Same sex marriage affects you, how?

on February 28, 2015

Doesn’t affect me in the slightest. I stated my opinion that I believe marriage should only be between a man and woman. Does my opinion “offend” you somehow?

on February 28, 2015

It’s sad that you probably learned this ignorant intolerance from your ignorant intolerant parents and you’re going to raise ignorant intolerant kids. If your only argument is because that’s how I feel and you don’t see anything wrong with that you really should take a debate class. I couldn’t imagine you as a judge, he’s guilty because well it’s my opinion, if you don’t agree then there is no need to argue. Like wtf you would be laughed out of any real debate. Being intolerant just because should be punishable by death, we don’t need assholes like you holding back our species. Hitler thought the Jews should all die, does that mean we shouldn’t have fought that because that was his opinion?

on February 28, 2015

And it’s even sadder that you don’t respect opinions that differ from your own. The fact that you accuse me of being ignorant, and then wish death upon me because my views on traditional marriage don’t match yours proves that you’re the ignorant one. I simply gave my opinion on a subject, asshole. if you want to debate the subject that’s fine with me too. You’ve already shown that you’re too stupid to know the difference between an opinion, and a lengthy pontification of the subject. But then again when your parents are brother and sister I guess we can’t expect too much logic or intelligence out of you. Tell us,did your mom take a triple dosage of laxatives to bring you into the world?  I’m guessing that you must’ve been conceived through anal sex, because being that much of a fucking asshole isn’t natural. So go back to studying the crack in your ass in front of a mirror, you sperm belching jizz jar.

on February 28, 2015

Ignorance is stating an opinion and not debating your views on a website called ARGUE anything. It’s not called state your intolerant views and be done with it. If your opinion is one that holds back other humans from living happily then we don’t really need you around. Our species has suffered enough from intolerance and ignorance. And on top of that you talk about traditional marriage, well dumb fuck two men or two women getting married is anything but traditional when it comes to marriage, so you can keep your traditional marriages and not be intolerant of other people’s wishes to get married.

on February 28, 2015

Hitler wanted the Jews dead, many didn’t agree with that. Should we just not have done anything about that because it was his opinion?

on March 1, 2015

So because my opinion differs from yours, that automatically makes it “intolerant”? What are you, the hidden entity that makes all the rules for Mankind to follow, you fucking egocentric asswipe? I stated that I believe marriage should only be between a man and  woman. I’m not standing in the way of same sex marriage, shit-for-brains. You and your boyfriend can do whatever you want to. ‘m not saying that people should stand outside churches and start stoning same sex couples. I’m just stating that I disagree with it. There’s a difference, although I’m guessing anyone who was as premature as you at birth would have trouble grasping that. The bottom line is I believe one way, and you believe another way, and all the head butting in the world isn’t going to change that, so there’s nothing to argue about. I’m not going to change your mind, and you’re not changing mine. And as for “intolerant” views, you’re the one who started the name calling, you stupid,cocksucking fuck.

on March 1, 2015

Don’t give a fuck one way or another. As long as I get to marry 3 chick’s.

on March 1, 2015

Move to Utah. You can marry as many chicks as you want. You may even get your own T.V. show.

on March 3, 2015

While that sounds good in theory, I have found I have trouble disappointing more than one woman at a time.

I’m pro-Same Sex Marriage, but I also believe everyone has a fundamental right to be wrong. There is a dividing line between not agreeing with it, and being activist. If someone says they disagree with it but don’t care what others do, that is considerably different from I disagree with it and will refuse to make you a cake or try to pass laws outlawing it.

The trouble with the debate is it has become dishonest and those two positions are now portrayed as equal.

on September 26, 2017

I absolutely agree. Im not an activist, but im not that person who hates everyone who is for it. Im simply disagreeing with it because it is my first amendment for Freedom of Speech,and so I will speak my opinion.

Deregulate marriage entirely–let it be a private matter, based on contract if the parties choose to sign one. As for government benefits, make them dependent not on marriage per se, but cohabitation or something along those lines.

on March 9, 2015

I completely agree nashley

on March 13, 2015

You’re exactly right. Marriage is a religious ritual, as far as the ceremony goes, the rest should simply be a contract between two grown people agreeing to combine their lives and finances. IN a free society any two people should be able to combine their lives and finances as they see fit

on March 14, 2015

Decent sentiment. My only problem with this is it doesn’t really resolve the issue. Suppose two individuals (same sex, different sex doesn’t matter) enter into a marital contract. Then suppose there’s a dispute regarding the contract. They take the dispute to court. In order for the court to make a decision regarding the contract, they’d have to recognize the contract. In other words the court (aka the government) would have to recognize the marriage. Most of this debate centers on the use of the word marriage. Deregulating marriage is probably a good idea but it doesn’t resolve the issue.

on March 15, 2015

The contract I am proposing is simply one where the two ppl agree, in legal terms, to combine their finances and lives to be recognized as”one entity”for matters of tax and business and credit purposes. There does not need to be any recognition of marriage. ANY 2 people should be able to take the money they earn and the lives they build and combine them with any other people they choose. Businesses do it all the time, it’s simply a merger. Courts settle disputes on business contracts everyday.

on March 15, 2015

I understand what is being proposed. Nonetheless it would be better if the word “marriage” was recognized. If two people enter into their own marital contract, and that contract is regarded as valid by the government, then by definition the government has just recognized a marriage. If alternatively you are proposing that no couple be allowed to enter into a marriage contract (they would simply have to call it a contract), then that would be a horrific interference in peoples’ personal lives. It would mean that couples couldn’t enter into private contracts of their own design.

Finally, even if this system were workable it would not be desirable. The word “marriage” carries with it a social value that “business partner” and equivalent terms can’t match. It means that two people have entered into more than a passing commitment. Most people regard it as much more serious than signing a lease to an apartment or buying a car or merging two companies. Linguistically this should be accounted for, and I can’t think of any word other than “marriage” that comes close. Asking all of society to give it up or rename it to something closer to a business relationship would mean that as a social institution marriage really would be devalued.

I do understand what you’re saying and it is a valid point.Though I still think government should stay out of the marriage business. Things like this are why the federal government is so bloated and full of power it does not constitutionally need. I look at it.like this, let’s say conservatives get what they want and gay marriage is done away with. When you tell ppl “you can’t get married because your lifestyle is perverted”or “because your lifestyle is not socially acceptable” then eventually one could deny marriage rights to any ppl they deem “perverted” or “not socially acceptable”. Then why stop at marriage rights?

Same sex marriage is important to change the course of human history. Once it has been in effect for some twenty or more years we can study divorce rates between heterosexual and homosexual marriages and all of us hereto marriage failures can feel embarrassed for taking an emotional bond for granted for so long.

That and maybe Christians will shut the Hell up about the sanctity of marriage for once.

You really believe you can Christians to shut up about anything? LOL

This rat. Whoever Christian you are talking about, is a self claimed Christian, because Christians from God, have a wise mindset, that God has given them. AND not all ‘heterosexual divorce’ you are talking about are led from God.
