I don't get it. I read all kinds of posts and comments on Gather making the point that gay marriage is a "civil right," based on love for a "same sex" partner. They claim that as a "minority," homosexual marriage should co-exist with "traditional" marriage, as it was accepted throughout human history.
Wait, that's not actually correct. Marriage has always been between a man and a woman, but men were, and still are allowed in many cultures, to have more than one wife (who has to be female, by the way). Polygamy was outlawed in the US a long time ago, but what do we tell the newest emerging sexual minority, the bisexuals?
They want to fall in love with one person of each sex, and have the other two fall in love with each other (or do they?). This is a family unit that the state should be forced to recognize, under any conceivable (even bogus) premise, if one follows the liberals' logic. Here's where the polygamists come in. They could weigh in that multiple marriage partners are a civil right that was unconstitutionally revoked by a government intending repression of a religious minority.
I say the polygamists should team up with the bisexuals to form a third party, or join the libertarians. I have some real issues with this radical agenda, but am putting this out there as satire. Put up or shut up, my Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered freinds! Do you want to state your agenda, or not?
A final question (or three) : Could someone love a same-sex partner enough to have a sex-change operation? Is that an answer to the banning of gay marriage? Where on Earth is this debate headed?
