Who should have the right to marry?

Those who divorced.. should they have the right to remarry while their spouse(ex) still lives?

If you say yes...
are you for the rights of gay marriage?

They are both equal in sin.. so.. why discriminate against one and not the other? Are not a majority of those out there hypocrites then?

  • Yup, hypocrites. If both parties are consenting adults, I think they should have a right to get married, regardless of sex, race, religion, or sexual preference.

  • ".. I'm just curious why one is soo pronounced as a sin, while we "turn the cheek" to the other issue. "

    Because one sin is committed by a lot of people-STRAIGHT people. Being gay is the one sin they know they will never commit. It's easy to point fingers at the one thing you know you, yourself will never be guilty of.

  • Either everyone or no one. Last time I checked "All men are created equal". And women are created slightly higher than that ;)

  • I don't believe either are sin - but then again I don't really believe in sin.... I do agree with autodidact, though, in that sin shouldn't matter since we're not a theocracy and it isn't the gov'ts job to regulate sinful behavior. Any legal consenting adult should be able to marry any (and however many) other legal consenting adult(s) as they please, IMO.

  • sin is immaterial as we're not a theocracy. what right does anyone have to determine that two consenting adults can't enter into a legal contract to provide one another with spousal rights, responsibilities and privileges?
