No point in voting
People voted for Hitler. Was he right?
Before anyone mentions Godwin's Law, I actually think that is a valid analogy—the persecution of homosexuals that is so rife in the modern world is comparable to the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany. In Uganda, Nigeria, et al, homosexuals can be killed for no reason other than being homosexual, and the "civilised" world does nothing about it; laws such as this one appear to actively condone the actions of such fundamentalist states.
I agree. Even if the analogy fell flat, the point about voting is my favoured argument against uninformed democracy (as opposed to real democracy).
Based on the IP's "gay dictator judge" conspiracy, I can only assume xe is fond of Jeff "Commander" Schoep. Incidentally, he didn't ignore the law. If the judge ignored it, it would still be in place. He paid it a lot of attention; in fact, he even issued a ruling that it's officially a crock of shite.
That gay judge is yet another example of why America is turning into a fascist state where the government oppresses the common man and gays force their perversions on innocent people.
- A political regime, having totalitarian aspirations, ideologically based on a relationship between business and the centralized government, business-and-government control of the market place, repression of criticism or opposition, a leader cult and exalting the state and/or religion above individual rights. Originally only applied (usually capitalized) to Benito Mussolini's Italy.
- By vague analogy, any system of strong autocracy or oligarchy usually to the extent of bending and breaking the law, race-baiting and violence against largely unarmed populations.
Yeah, sounds a lot like a state where gay people can get married . . . you know, one where they have the same rights as everyone else?
Proposition 8 does not persecute gays. Gays still have the same rights as heterosexuals: they can legally marry a member of the opposite sex.
But they can't marry the person they love. Ignorant comments like yours are unhelpful, and do nothing to further the discussion.
You are the one who is ignorant. Marrying a member of the same sex is disgusting and runs against the definition of marriage.
What is so disgusting about being with the person you love in the privacy of your own home? The disgusting thing is that society won't accept homosexuality and allow them to have the same rights as straight people—namely, the right to marry whoever they like. Homosexuality does nothing to harm you: They won't do anything "disgusting" in front of you, just as a straight couple wouldn't. The most you will ever witness is a bit of kissing, and the revocation of the right to marry won't stop that.
Ah, now you show your true colours. Disgusting it may be to you, but that does not and should not make it illegal.
For your arguments of gays forcing their sexual preferences upon others to be true, then the judge would have issued a ruling that same-sex sexual assaults were no longer offences. You don't enjoy fucking another guy? Simple solution: Stop doing it.
