Buy WHY can't they just have civil unions??!!! Why does it have to be "marriage?"

Posted by   + Show Post

There are more than 1,000 federal laws that confer benefits of one sort or another on married couples — everything from tax savings to Social Security benefits, but DOMA excludes those benefits for legally married same-sex couples.

http://www.npr.org/2013/03/27/175295410/doma-challenge-tests-federal-definition-of-marriage


Why can't we let the states decide and the people can vote their hearts?

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Won't gay marriage lead to polygamy and bestiality and pedophilia? 

This isn't even on  Congress's radar.  The crux of their support for DOMA is...

"the core purpose and defining characteristic of the institution of marriage always has been the creation of a social structure to deal with the inherently procreative nature of the male-female relationship".

This is not good legal argument, folks.  Lots of people don't have babies and they are allowed to marry.  Lots of people have babies who are not married.  A recent study said that children raised by hay and lesbian couples are not endangered.

She didn't even spell goat right. Don't argue with stupid lol.

Quoting brettsmomma:

This is a stupid argument. She wrote WHO they want not WHAT. a goat is not a human being capable of loving another human.

Anyone of legal age should be able to marry who they want.  No goverment (state or federal) should tell them otherwise.

If that's the best you can get...I'm sorry for the goat

But goats can't enter into legal contracts, which is necessary to get married

My grandparents have been married for nearly 60 years... Just sayin, it is still around


Quoting brettsmomma:

My neighbors are a gay couple that has lived together for over 40 years. Now that's love. How many of you can honestly say you or your parents(well I can but I know its not the norm) have been in one committed loving relationship that long?

They deserve to walk down the aisle and get married if that's their choice.

Who are we to say they cant? What right do we have to determine this is wrong? Our constitution separates religion from our government. Its time we put that to the test.

Also, i remember reading in history books somewhere that the.US tried doing separate but equal before. Can you refresh my memory as to how that all worked out?

Why can't we have separation of church and state like we're supposed to? Why are religious views having so much control over things they have no business being in.

I don't see the big deal.  Straight people have been fucking marriage up for years; let gay people give it a shot.
