The joke is people think that if gays are allowed to adopt, the kids will become gay because they were raised by homosexuals, yet they ignore the fact that if there are homosexuals they were at one point raised by heterosexuals, meaning heterosexuals raise homosexual children by their logic.

they want to isolate gay people because they think at some point they'll die off because they think they reproduce at all through their intercourse with their lover, what they don't understand is
1. homosexuals came from heterosexuals, so there'll always be more
2. they obviously lack even basic sexual education
3. thinking that they could isolate every homosexual in the united states would be just like what we did right after pearl harbor, putting japanese people in camps, it's unconstitutional and abhorrent.
4. they also lack any semblance of intelligence

Exactly, I took the main joke of the post to be that this woman was stupid enough to think that the homosexual couples would reproduce to make biological offspring, whereas the joke in the comment seemed to revolve round society's opinion and assumption about the effect of a homosexual couple raising a child, which seemed to me to be completely unrelated to the content.

Light the beacons, someone is talking sense on the internet!
Really though, if only we could get this idea through to the narrow-minded, gullible pricks that make up one group of religious people. I don't mind if a person has religion, if it makes them happy then good for them! But what really annoys me is when people use their religion as an excuse for nothing short of prejudice and bigotry, and then try and push THEIR views on people other than THEMSELVES.
I mean, the former set of religious folks tend to be quite nice people on the whole. The latter group though, the really militant ones with no sense of tolerance or reasoning (I'm looking at you, WBC) can die in a fire, for all I care.

i love how every religious person where i live had/has a sign from obama's last campaign saying "preserve religious freedom"....the irony was obviously lost on them.
(and to state the irony here's me)
soooo, what you're saying is we should vote to protect what has been the reasoning for murder, rape, suicide, genocide, and "the terrorist attacks" as you think, so you can use it to not only overlook and possibly support these things, but also so you can use it to oppress a kind of person who didn't choose to believe something like you did, but were born a certain way that cannot be influenced by decision, it is merely biological programming, but, then again, why would i use this term for you, you probably don't even remember what biology is....anyway, go **** yourself, with something spiky and sandpaper-y

oh boy, another fine example of how the 12 year old atheists on this site pick out the stupidest members of a religion, namely christanity. why? cause they think they're oppressed of course, because they act all douchy when it comes to it and hate it when some one says something back. Hell, it's not like there's a LOT of atheists who deny jesus's existence entirely throughout history, or how religious beliefs and staying true to their morals have helped many people. no, they focus on the same stories that have been pounded into their heads by their other 12 year old autistic minds that there is no existence of a god. they say that if humanity and all it's creation and discovery simply vanished, another race of beings would discover the same scientific facts but not religious beliefs. Wrong. If another race of beings evolved like human beings, god would still be created/discovered, then science. if they developed though process first however, god would still be included due to the fact of creation's infinite causality. but **** that right, no we have to act like dick heads and ******* act like asshats instead of doing the right thing (something constantly said in majority of religions) and just get the **** along. I would gladly continue this but the hour grows late and I tire typing words that will inevitably fall on deaf ears.

Since the beginning of humanity every single civilization had some kind of gods to explain things around them. There have been many religions through eras. Many other ,,powerfull" gods. Where are gods like Zeus, Osiris, Jupiter? Where are their mighty religions? What is the difference between them and Christian God? Just because some carpenter 2000 years ago said he is son of him that made him real? Yes you are right if our civilization would be destroyed there would be created new gods. But not the one that you are thinking.

This content aside, I'm failing to see how you come to the conclusion that a different race that evolved like humans would discover/create the same god that Christians believe in. You say that it's because the universe must have an original cause, but that's an argument that's capable of being used by itself without the need for invoking another race, so I fail to understand how that part about another race is necessary or even related. Also, what does "if they developed through the procees first however" supposed to mean?

Overall, I just don't see how you're substantiating all of this.

Well, to be fair, religion has been used time and time again to oppress people. Right now with the gays by taking away their right to be married.

Frankly, this would all go away if marriage was simply a religious institution instead of a legal one. The government should just not recognize marriage, stick to civil unions and let the church do whatever the **** ceremonies with no legal standing.

and pure force has also been used to oppress people. The truth of it all, the so called rules of society (including religious rule) don't exist. they're not tangible nor can hurt you. Only people acting on the belief of their existence can. We put the meaning behind them, making them important. same could be said about many things in the daily life. disbelief has also been used to oppress people through history, like during the french rebellion or soviet russia. during both, if you were found worshiping some idols or didn't agree with the higher political power or mob mentality, you were killed, no trial.

this always makes me angry because those things were set by the PEOPLE, not their beliefs! the King of Asgard, Odinn, is the god of wisdom and poetry! POETRY FFS! especially stupid people assume the worst of someone judging by their religion. to an idiot:
odinists = rapist vikings, muslims = suicide bombers, wicca = devil worshipper

So just because other groups oppress people it's suddenly alright for religion too? Or is it that their way is less bad, so suddenly it's acceptable.

Any group is going to oppress smaller groups, it's the way of the world. Religion just makes it easier to get more people into that group because generally they give people hope.

The ideas of the community religion gives and that aforementioned hope make religion great, but in practice people corrupt that idea.

If I started rambling, I'll admit that I kind of zoned out somewhere in that.

That's a pretty bad argument
"religion has been used time and time again to oppress people. Right now with the gays by taking away their right to be married."

First of all, and this is going to sound bad, Homosexual people NEVER got right to get married, it's just a new occurrence, you can't take away a right that said people never had. Now, have you ever wondered why the church is against gay marriage? According to our beliefs, marriage is a RELIGIOUS union between a man and a woman. At least in my country, you have to do both, a LEGAL marriage, and a religious marriage, it's separate, and if a third world country has that system, most probably USA does too.

Now don't get me wrong, I have nothing against gay people, in fact, I support the right of gay people to receive a legal union, but they can't ask the government for a law that makes gay people available to get married in a religious manner, since the very definition of marriage is against it. That is oppression, the same one you claim religion does. The same one I get when I say out loud that I don't support gay marriage.

Okay, so it's cool to oppress them, since we've been oppressing them forever. Got it.

And nope, while there is the ceremony that makes marriage a religious affair, right now in the US gays can not legally be married. They can have Civil Unions, but as our friend kellenved stated later, civil unions don't have the same privileges that come with marriage.

This is why I'm also arguing that marriage shouldn't be a legal practice at all. Scrap marriage, let the religious groups make their ceremonies as important as whatever ceremonies the gays have, and rewrite the rules for Civil Unions.

That was for your comment about them never having the right. Since everyone else has the right, it's taking it away the second they want to do it.

The government works for the people, the people are the ones fighting so hard. The government has repeatedly tried to legalize gay marriage. The religious groups were strong enough to vote it down.

It's their mob mentality.

Prop 8 years back in California. I was surprised because I used to go to a church (grew up there, didn't believe at the time, but people were like family) and they were all pretty against giving these people their rights.

Ah this argument again. Let me address the most obvious fallacy first. You're suggesting two different kinds of 'marriage,' one for straights, one for gays. The same exact discrimination strategies used by white supremacists when they made bathrooms and drinking fountains for whites and another set for 'coloreds.' It is still discrimination and it doesn't matter how much you say you have no problem with gay people, if this is your stance then you are a bigot.

Secondly, most gays don't want your religious marriage, they want a legal marriage with all the legal rights that go with it, and then the bible thumpers come along and say "No you can't get married cause it's against my religion! You're oppressing us!" You say you are against them having equal rights, and then whine about being oppressed. That is the height of hypocrisy. I could go on about the hypocrisy about the separation of church and state, how the bible thumpers use their beliefs to influence politics and spread their bigotry into laws and then scream "SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE!" whenever the government takes any kind of action regarding religion they don't like, like taxing churches or what not. You can't pick and choose when laws apply or what parts of it apply. Marriage is a LEGAL contract between two consenting adults and comes with many LEGAL rights and privileges, that's what they want. They don't give a **** about your religion or a religious marriage. They just want some equal rights.

"At least in my country, you have to do both, a LEGAL marriage, and a religious marriage, it's separate, and if a third world country has that system, most probably USA does too. "

"Secondly, most gays don't want your religious marriage, they want a legal marriage with all the legal rights that go with it"

I searched my statement, I never found when I said anything about two kinds of marriages, you bashed me for being against gay marriage for a reason I never even expressed, then went on to say the exact same thing I'm supporting them for. Please read what people say.

I read it pretty thoroughly and you say the same things all bible thumping bigots say. At least the ones that are too cowardly to just come out and say they hate gays. I have more respect for the WBC than I do for you, they at least aren't afraid to just come out and say they hate gays.

Geez, don't People realize that it's just common courtesy to leave a comment that continues one thought with the comment it was paired with? Some users...right?

Oh, and since we were talking about it earlier, I wanted to mention the fact that somewhere out there, there is a single marriage certificate that has my signature as the officiant.

people ARE stupid, i am stupid, i won't deny that. i know that religion doesn't cause the existence of, well... everything, but i still cling to my belief in Odinism, can you suggest why that is? why a person who is generally scientific believes in the Big Bang as well as the belief that a giant space cow gave milk to the earth to make people?

But most (if not all) Christian churches are against gays.
I used to go to a pretty laid back church (wasn't religious, just felt like family because I grew up in that church) and frankly I was a little shocked at how much they were against gay marriage.

But a lot are very against gay marriage. Which, as long as it's a legal matter instead of just a religious one, means they're actively working to make being in a gay couple less valid.

They're trying to push their ideas on the law.
Which is why I've been arguing that marriage shouldn't be a legal matter. Civil Unions should be the only unions recognized by the state. Let the religious have their ceremonies all they want, but leave it at that.

I do understand where you're coming from though. A lot of individual people oppose gay marriage rights and actively work against them, but that's typically because they just don't know how the law works, and are a little overzealous in spreading their beliefs. institutions, on the other hand, are run by a collection of highly educated people who do understand the separation between law and theology. so like I said, the religious institutions teach that homosexuality is immoral, but they teach this to their followers instead of to congress. it's the individuals who are to blame, not the actual institutions themselves.

Most of the high groups you're talking about do have a negative stance on it. Plenty of times the churches themselves are either farther right or left wing than their heads, but most do follow what their bible says and have a stance against gay marriage.

My family traces back to the roots of the religion. I've heard enough bad about the religion to personally not want anything to do with it.

Of course, I have the same feelings towards all organized religion. The idea behind it (community and family and all that) are amazing, but in practice people corrupt the purest ideas.

Wicca is not an organized religion. Plus one of the main things is Do harm on no-one. (even though i'm swat...) This includes discriminating.
Its really hard to provide "Facts" Because people worship in different ways.

(continued again.)
the collection of native american religions will henceforth be recognized as Nat-Ame. nat-ame, aborigine, druidry, astaru, odinism, shinto and many others are in fact fully compatible, they simply use different names and respect different aspects of the ecosystem that they exist within

(continued.)
an interesting myth of odinism is that odinn did the bad thing with a GIANTESS OF THE EARTH, and gaia (foremost goddess in wicca, motherly titan of earth to the ancient greek and far too big of a coincidence to ignore) in ancient greek and wiccan is referred to as THE EARTH MOTHER or the ALLMOTHER, while odin is often referred to as the ALLFATHER. you could even see wicca and odinism as two sides of the same coin as they are completely compatible with room to spare.
other religions can fit nicely into this amalgamation such as druidry, which is often seen as masculine wicca (wicce) and focuses more on animals within nature than nature itself. druidry was incorporated into wicca as much as 3000 years ago or even longer! druidry is extremely similar and very much compatible with native american and native australian beliefs

i'll help!
wicca is grouped together with various small-ish religions including odinism and are collectively called paganism (which is hilarious because earlier christians believe 'pagan' was an insult, but it actually means country-dweller).
generally pagan religions are gentle and kindly. it also involves a lot of other religions that are considered to be quite large like buddhism (especially shinto-buddhism). technically speaking a pagan belief is any religion that does not keep muhammed as a propet. on the absolute basic level, wicca is loving the earth like a goddess. hundreds of variations exist mainly involving a duality (the mother of earth and the father of the hunt), however many believe in associate gods that are similar. for example there are similarities between odinism and the dodekatheism pantheon of the ancient greek. another interesting fact is that the ancient greek believed that gods from other countries existed as well

this is how i see christianity: the bible has bad stuff in, but is written by people, not god
there are good christians and bad christians

chances are in favor of you being a good christian (love thy neighbor, thou shalt not kill, etc). a perfect example of a bad christian is the westboro baptist church.

as evil as this sounds (and i do believe i'm going to suffer for this opinion) this actually may be useful in weeding out incurable STDs.

to be gay is a choice, one no one other than the person making the choice has any control over and should be respected as a if it was a choice by any other american (assuming this is in america, sorry). anyone who says different may kiss our free will good bye

Great. THIS again. Listen, homosexuals have different physiologies than heterosexuals. Assuming from your drivel that you don't know what physiology is, it is the processes, mechanics, and structures of the human body. The most important difference between homosexuals and heterosexuals is a distinct difference in the hypothalamus. This, current science theorizes, is controlled by a gene that is unexpressed and inactive until puberty, a time when the hypothalamus is QUITE active.

Dude, being gay is not a choice. I've had to deal with so many crazy chicks on my life (I just seem to attract crazy) that frankly, I wish I was gay at times. But the thought is just so...icky.

calling it being a choice would also say i choose not to be. i choose not to be gay.
Although, even if is not their choice, their preference is their business. people like the woman in the post tend believe just because they have a difference in opinion, the other must change their opinion to match hers

true true, but i was not insinuating that we should quarantine only homosexuals, but all people with incurable STDs (so their disease would not spread any further). That is why i completely disagreed with her argument in the second paragraph.

Do you know how cruel and inhumane that sounds? And what about the people who don't wish to be quarantined, would they be killed or forced to live a life of misery away from their friends and family? And what of people outside who don't agree with this new law, they would surly turn against the government and that would just lead to chaos. So no it wouldn't wipe out STDs for good.
