War on Marriage Is a War on Reality

Another issue about mandating 'same sex marriage' will be economic. Companies and businesses that have family health insurance plans and other benefits for employers will face new issues: can they still have health plans for hetrosexual married couples only? Will they face law suits if that they do not give the same benefits to 'married' homosexual couples? Since health insurance and other employee benefits have gotten expensive, my guess is that many companies will be forced to drop any type of family benefits for its employees, go bankrupt or raise prices to its customers. Look at how Obamacare is impacting company hiring.

Yes, corporations will be required to provide the same benefits to all married couples. But no, this will not result in an inordinate increase in costs. In fact, it wont' make much difference. Given that most gay couples do NOT have children, gay couples are most often BOTH employed. If I were worried about costs, I would be actively seeking to employ a married gay person...not much chance of high cost children, likely both parties work and are insured. And its worth considering that gay Americans tend to be more educated and make more money as a group.

You are just trying to FIND a rationale for opposing gay marriage.

Jack: Yes, that is my argument. From studying the opponents of same-sex marriage, you find a distinct pattern of rationalization and justification for their pre-existing dislike of homosexuality. Couple that with the desire of so many conservatives to be victims and you have nonsensical columns like this one. It’s not just a war, it’s a blitzkrieg.

Mike, this is, of course the reality. The truth is that homosexuality repulses certain people. That is perfectly OK. That aversion (more prominently directed at gay men as opposed to gay women) creates a mental state. The mind of the distressed conservative then seeks some sort of rationale, any sort of rationale, to justify the gut reaction.

War on marriage, war on Christmas - do these people ever think about how ridiculous they sound. And yes old Billie Boy will try anything to hide his hatred (perhaps it is self-hatred as is the case with DCM) of male homosexuality. Most Fortune 500 companies already offer partner benefits as it is. The issue has nothing to do with marriage as it does discrimination.

I once remarked that Americans are relatively tolerant of lesbians to the extent most pornos include an obligatory lesbian scene. The aversion is concentrated on gay men and I thought the positions should be reversed. When queried if my position was based on the fact I was gay, I replied, "No, enlightened self interest. If male homosexuality were encouraged, it would decrease my competition; if female homosexuality were discouraged, it would increase my opportunities."

Do gay men still get AIDS?

Over the past few weeks, the War on Marriage has turned into a Blitzkrieg.

It’s all designed to sway the Supreme Court, which will be hearing arguments Tuesday and Wednesday on California’s voter-approved constitutional marriage amendment and the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

A day doesn’t pass without another bomb dropped on the oldest human institution. If it’s not another slanted poll, negatively worded to elicit the “correct” response, it’s a politician sharing his sudden revelation that God didn’t know what He was doing when He created marriage as the union of male and female.
