Even If Your Child Is Gay...

Funny, Prager stretches so hard to find partially relevant scenarios, most of which are straw men, because there's nothing like this issue, and what he preaches here really doesn't apply. A gay person can buy whatever he or she wants, can go to the MVA and get a driver's license, can vote, go to war, pay taxes, perform any duties or jobs... "but hold on there - don't you even think about having a relationship serious enough for you to want to get MARRIED! No, no! It's ridiculous that you want the same legal agreement that heterosexual people can have! Just go away, have your little pretend lives, and your fake love... and leave marriage to us 'real people'! " It's cartoonish. Signed, a conservative who believes in the same rights for all.

No compassion or understanding here.....I feel sorry for you as you have never faced thi issue or a suspect talked with people who have. Legalzing marriage or a "union" as some want to call it is
the right way to give equal protection to all. We are all different in our combinations of DNA and our brain, bodies, talents, looks, ...... our skills and inner-beings still, be different as they are, come from our Creator. He would want you to accept and protect all of His children....Give them the legal rights to form unions/marriages and to protect each other in such commitments.

What's cartoonish is same-sex people thinking they should be able to marry. They already have the right to marry....someone of the opposite sex, just like the rest of us. They just have to find someone eligible. The world shouldn't have to change just so these perverts can feel better about their chosen dysfunction. Signed a true conservative who already knows we all have the same rights.

"don't you even think about having a relationship serious enough for you to want to get MARRIED!" -- Do you even know anything about the average homosexual relationship? "Serious enough" doesn't fit it very well.

"It's ridiculous that you want the same legal agreement that heterosexual people can have!" -- No, they want a different one that's called the same.

"a conservative who believes in the same rights for all" -- No, you don't. If you did, you'd recognize that everyone already has the same rights, but not everyone wants them on the terms they come with.

"Serious enough" -- One of those nasty little realities we're not supposed to know about "gay" relationships is how far they inevitably fall short of true monogamy. That's because an issue like same-sex attraction tends to affect things like self-control.

And grow a little Gay Pride... Stop begging for the straight nomenclature.

Homosexuals are the new lepers;

"Of course you despise us...we're loathsome"

Lighten up people. Our definition of marriage has nothing to do with our opinion of you.

Don't be a useful idiot for the Left.

Steve signed as a "conservative". A true conservative would not want to see marriage redefined anymore than he would want to see the 2nd Amendment redefined.

Why is it ridiculous???? Are we not all God;'s children???? Does he not love us all and want for us to love each other???? Come on now.....proceed into the light and out of the dark ages......

Last week, Republican Senator Rob Portman of Ohio announced that he had reversed his position on same-sex marriage. The reason was that his son had come out to him and his wife as gay.

This is not the first such instance. Periodically, we hear about Republican politicians whose child announces that he or she is gay, prompting the parent to change his mind about the man-woman definition of marriage.

As a parent, I understand these parents. We love our children, and we want them to love us.

Nevertheless I differ with their decisions to support the redefinition...
