Well, considering that marriage is originated from religious ceremony, I can see why.   
   
My issue is that marriage is government-involved. If it weren't, and people could legally become financially conjoined without having to marry, all problems would be solved.   
   
But no, that would be too non-conflicting for people.

I think religion is stupid and is holding all of humanity back from social and economical progress.
Without religion we might be flying hovercrafts by now.

Religious monasteries maintained historical records and literature of Roman and Greek intellectuals during the Dark Ages. Religion saved a lot of mathematics and art that would have been destroyed by invading barbarians.

Without religion we might be still trying to figure out algebra by now.
Please don't comment about things I literally major in... incorrectly.

I'm very sorry that you major in that, and still fail to realize that just because they happened because of religion, that it means that we couldn't have done it better without it.
I'm not preaching atheism you imbecile, I shared my opinion, hence the "I think"
It's shocking you major in anything at all given your intelligence level, though it is about religion, so I guess that kind of explains it.

Uh, you're saying we would have been better off being atheists, so... yeah, you are preaching, you 'imbecile' (Nice attempt at trying to make yourself sound smarter with a fancy-ass insult word). I study history, and in perspective, death and destruciton and back-thinking comes from all sorts of reasons; yeah, sometimes religion, but other times anti-religion, greed, and the list goes on.   
   
And, let me be blunt; your comment is worded like a moron; you're trying to make the comment sound smarter, which only makes you look like  a dumbass who is seriously insecure.

Okay, I never said anyone would be better off atheist.
What I implied is that we would be better off if people believed in their religion and didn't try to broadcast it or make changes to society based on religion.

And about the whole "I'm just trying to sound smart" point, no.
I don't ever try to sound smart, did I try to make sure I didn't make any grammatical errors because I'm in an argument against wit? No.
Also nothing was wrong with my wording, and I happen to like the word imbecile.
You saying that I'm trying to sound intelligent only makes you seem insecure.

Again, I said "without religion" to imply that without theists forcing their beliefs on society. I never said "without religion ever existing" I also never said that people would be better off being atheists. When did I even say that we would be better off without hovercrafts?

Doesn't matter, it's still not what i said.
User avatar #449 to #447 - swedishassassin (03/29/2013) [-]
I ain't thumbing you down, kid. You like the word imbecile because it sounds smarter than 'retard' or 'dumbass'; insecurity and an attempt to look more elegant. And throwing back the accusation doesn't work in this case, since I never tried to claim myself smarter than you.

The fact that you had to throw your pointless opinion that religion is stupid proves your insecurity, and the beyond-dulled reasons lacking any justification to what you said proves you are retarded.

I'm also gonna guess your 12.
User avatar #451 to #449 - capslockrage (03/29/2013) [-]
> "your 12"
Yeah, I think I'm done here.

Although I must clear it up, I don't think religion is stupid, like I said I think it's stupid that some religious people try to force their religion on society.
And I'm not a kid, I'm 19. Am I a middle-aged adult?
Nah, but I'm not a kid.
Also I found that most people that say "kid" in an argument lack the vocabulary to use other words, which is why I use "fancy" or "elegant" words as you like to say.

Bottom of the line is that you're putting words in my mouth, using childish insults, and keep claiming that I'm of inferior intelligence to yourself whenever I use "fanceh wurdz"

Don't bother replying, I know you'll only repeat your past points so I won't waste my time viewing it.

Have a nice day, and may you grow up and learn your mistakes, and that not everybody that has a decent vocabulary is trying to be "fancy".

I think you're stupid now since you've backpedaled completely from your first comment.

"I think religion is stupid and is holding all of humanity back from social and economical progress.
Without religion we might be flying hovercrafts by now."


This definately implies that you wish religion did not exist, believing we would be far ahead technologically. I proved you wrong, and you blubbered out:
"I fail to realize that just because they happened because of religion, that it means that we couldn't have done it better without it.". That's not even a proper sentence.
User avatar #459 to #457 - capslockrage (03/29/2013) [-]
It makes sense if you know how to read.
And like I said, nowhere does it say that I wish religion never existed.
I said to you, 3 times I believe, that if THEY DID NOT FORCE IT ON SOCIETY, THAT WE WOULD BE BETTER OFF.
I'M TRYING TO SAY THAT IF THEY DIDN'T EFFECT OTHER THINGS THAN THEIR PERSONAL LIVES WITH IT, THAT WE WOULD BE BETTER OFF.
I AM NOT SAYING THAT THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE RELIGION, I'M SAYING THAT THEY SHOULD KEEP IT TO THEIR PERSONAL LIVES, AND NOT IN POLITICS AND SCIENCE.

You keep saying that I myself am saying stupid things, and yet everything I have said has made sense, you're just too illiterate to read it.

Please stop, you're just saying the same things, which in turn makes me say the same things back to you, but each time progressively getting more retard friendly.
User avatar #463 to #459 - swedishassassin (03/29/2013) [-]
...you ******* idiot. If you truly believe we would be better off without religion, then you would desire that it never existed, or else you'd be cynical in the fact that you would want people held back.

Like I said, your whole argument is on one of my sentences, which you took literally, when it was just an example.

What the **** are you talking about, an example? I don't give a **** what you "meant". All it means is you know you said something completely uneducated and are trying to take it back instead of admitting it, like a bitch.

And sure, a 19 year old saying a Master's degree doesn't mean much really carries weight. Say that to my set-up research job that'll pay me about $45,000 starting salary. You can keep living off of your parents' income, child.

Continuing on this, because there is too many replies.
Also, the 67.5k is NOT ******** , I do lucrative things online, it may not be a 100% consistent 67.5k, but I averaged my last 3 years profit.

And yes, I do know what literally means, and when I said it, I meant that you took what I said to be what I completely meant, from one sentence.
I'll just let you win this one then, "I'm sorry for making such a fool of myself in that one sentence, and I fully understand why you dissected that one point out of the entire comment and repeated it through many of your comments"

And I did not "wish" death on you, I just gave you a viable option to end your miserable existence.

Also, no opinion can be a "stupid ******* opinion" (real intelligent choice of words there pal) because an opinion is just that, an "opinion" It's not something I stated to be true or factual, it was just an opinion. If your next comment is about my income, that one part of that one comment, or something containing more petty insults then I'm not even going to bother replying.

oh ok 19yo. I can feel the ******** of that $68k flowing through you.
There is something called an 'educated opinion', which by saying "And what I said was not uneducated, it was simply an opinion", you've shown you've never heard of it. I ain't surprised.

An educated opinion is also commonly known as an inference, which is a opinion that uses justification from proven facts, like when I described the early monks who saved much of Greek/Roman/Eastern mathematics and sciences, as well as architecture and art. You just made a stupid ******* opinion, that lacked any rhyme or reason.

Also, what the **** do you mean by taking it literally? Are you saying your first comment was sarcastic or something. I don't think you know what "literally" means.

And congrats on stooping down to wish death on someone when you have no argument to give. Real mature.

i think that apart from religious and legal purposes of marriage, it is also a social institution. we get married so that we can proclaim to society our bonds to our lover, and be proud of our love and commitment in the public eye, as well as the other things. I think that this needs to be recognized. if you tell people they're not allowed to marry the person they love like everyone else does, they feel targeted.

Look, I don't have anything against 'gay marriage'. The way I see it, marriage has already been destroyed by straight people who disregard 'till death do us part'. The issue I got is with the government giving no other option that could very easily diffuse this struggle, simply out of uncompromising spite. It's childish t this point.

User avatar #361 - kolsinder (03/28/2013) [-]
Whilst I agree with the underlying message he has conveyed, I would like to mention that his example is appalling. The house at issue inalienably belongs to the woman, unlike marriage, which, aside from being intangible, doesn't belong to anyone. In short, she technically has the right, albeit a highly presumptuous one, to fend off anyone who tries to park their car on her property. As far as marriage is concerned, no one "owns" other people's relationships.
#372 to #361 - jduttonboom (03/28/2013) [-]
according to the source above, which clearly states "make sure no one is parking in front of it" refering to the property, the cars are parking in the zone which would most likely be the sidewalk area. this zone is not property of the homeowner otherwise every that walked passed could technically be done for tresspassing. jus saiyen x.

You're right, I guess I slightly misinterpreted the picture. Still though, she could that argue that potentially, presuming she were to suddenly move back in and owns a car, the other parked cars could obstruct her own parking space and thus cause some inconvenience. As regards marriage, sanctioned homosexual relationships do not create private or public nuisances, which is where Charlie's example comes short. Then again, some deluded wankers argue that gay marriage implicitly harms children or something along those lines. In any event, it's a ludicrous stance to support.

It's the principle of separate but equal.
There used to be services that were white only and colour only, they were the same, but segregated.
For a country like the USA that says it is on the forefront of equality, that is so proud that it abolished race-based segregation and claims that every man is equal, they spend a lot of time going "It's the same, but different"

Getting married is as simple as 2 people signing a paper why is this even going to the supreme court? I don't think its hurting other peoples rights. Getting married is just making it official that you're financially intimate.

getting married is getting free care from the goverment.
there are a lot of privelages. its not just signing your name on paper so you can use your partners last name, its about living with twice less of worries.

this goes on medical, financial, and status reports. thus why married parents are able to support their kids while as single parents have a hard time providing for their kids.

Honestly? This ******** is because of religion.
Not to pull the atheist card here, but religion truly is holding everyone back.
So many people are afraid to do new things because of their religion that if they did, we might be more progressed than we are now.
I'm not singling any certain religion out, but really, ever hear of "separate church and stats"? All these politicians are voting on **** because of their religions views and they shouldn't be, because not everyone aligns with the same religion.

TL;DR? religion is holding back social and economical progress and is the main reason why gays cannot get married in today's society.

Probably going to get thumbed down for this, but I'll just say what I think:
I think anyone who is against gay marriage in this day and age is a ******* idiot.
If you're against it based upon what the Bible or your religion says, then you're hypocritical for ignoring the hundreds of other **** the Bible tells you not to do. You can't pick and choose which ones you want to follow or not, it doesn't work like that.
If you're against it because of procreation, newsflash: we have a population crisis in the world right now. And just because gays can't get married doesn't mean they're suddenly going to turn straight, get married to a woman, and start making kids with them.
If you're against it because you think it's gross, dumb, weird, etc. then you're just a downright homophobe.
If you were raised to hate gays and gay marriage, then your parents/guardians are a bunch of conservative assholes.
I know I'm being intolerant, but it's just my opinion. I'm not stating this as fact, just how I feel. And I kinda wanted to get it off my chest...

I don't get why people would be upset about this. If someone needs a place to park and I'm not using my driveway, they can sure as hell use it. Better than taking up the ******* street. It's just logical. There's a space designed for a car to be parked and area on the street designed to be driven - not parked - on. It just makes sense to use the driveway that is not currently in use.

I'm usually pretty tolerant with the whole gay thing. But seriously.

Shut the **** up. You guys are worse than religious people. You make it sound like if you don't support gays then you're evil. And the best part is that you're posting these on a site meant for comedy. **** , if you really want to change something then mail a letter to your senator or some **** . No one here can do anything about it, and no one here gives a flying **** . I'm sick of coming on here and seeing 15 gay posts in a row. I come here to laugh, not to argue about a topic I don't give a **** about.

Now please, shut your ******* mouths, and post some funny content. If you really want to bitch about gay rights, then go to Reddit. Or Facebook. I don't really care. Just keep all the gay rights arguments off of Funnyjunk.


TL;DR Shut the **** up and laugh.

well, not supporting gay marriage is, in a way, un-American. you know, the whole 14th amendment and everything.

I'm fine with gay marriage and whatever but i think that people will have to wear tags or something saying gay or straight so you know how to act around someone. Could you imaging thinking you were best friends with some guy and he confessed to you and then you just lost your best friend/he will still be friends with you but will have random guys over all the time.
User avatar #392 to #134 - eddymolly (03/28/2013) [-]
How is that different to if you were friends with a guy who then got a girlfriend, and took her around with you everywhere?

Why does it matter if they have a boyfriend? Who really gives a **** ?
#145 to #134 - colmcorbec (03/28/2013) [-]
Ooorr you could *wait for it* treat everybody the SAME!
You know, like you want to be treated the SAME from everybody else.
It's really mind-blowing when you think about it. isn't it??
#149 to #134 - yusay (03/28/2013) [-]
You are joking, right?

Sexuality isn't like race, and there's already a problem with gays and bisexuals being bullied as kids in school.

so there are these fanatical christain people who keep trying to shove their religion down my throat

That is what i thing all these people who keep pushing gay marriage in my face are like
User avatar #37 to #29 - lunacy (03/28/2013) [-]
That's a terrible comparison. They're asking for something that is their right, religious people are demanding something they have no right to whatsoever (your religious preference). gay people aren't going around trying to convert people to homosexuality, what the **** . Not to mention the fact that religion (a choice) has more protections than sexuality.

I'm for gay marriage because I don't want to stop them from doing something that doesn't impact me, but like... why do they want to get married? Marriage is something forced upon people for multiple reasons (pregnancy, parents finding out about sex, just being drunk in Vegas) and you actually pay more money in taxes and stuff. There's no difference in THEIR lives either, you can still wear rings and claim to be together....
User avatar #17 to #16 - jacklane (03/28/2013) [-]
There are also civil unions and domestic partnerships... So I don't get what they're bitching about. What? Because you want to call it a "marriage?" Whatever. Have it then. Don't care.
User avatar #94 to #17 - coolcalx (03/28/2013) [-]
as I said in post #90:
1.) civil unions do not have the same legal rights and benefits of a legal marriage
2.) civil unions are illegal due to the precedent set in Roe V. BOE of Topeka Kansas
User avatar #21 to #17 - siridontcare (03/28/2013) [-]
because in a lot of places you can't even get the domestic partnership.
User avatar #26 to #21 - jacklane (03/28/2013) [-]
Well then here is my thought: ANYONE (whether they are in love or not) should be able to have a domestic partnership. If I have a roommate and we financially depend on each other, we should get tax benefits like the marrieds do.
User avatar #18 to #17 - greenwithenvy (03/28/2013) [-]
^^^ this, everyone going "blah blah why don't you want them to be married" needs to be asked "why do they care about marriage so much? many gay people come out because they're brave enough to not care what people might think, so whyyyy care what they call it when gay's stay together forever"
User avatar #22 to #16 - siridontcare (03/28/2013) [-]
Maybe you should re check the benefits of being married. There are a ton. Being able to visit your lover in the hospital if they are sick. Letting your "Family" be cared for incase you die. And its actually less taxes. Plus shared health benefits. etc etc
User avatar #32 to #22 - greenwithenvy (03/28/2013) [-]
re-check tax brackets, it's more no matter how you slice it, but the other sentimental stuff isn't possible with a domestic partnership?

first Roe Vs. Wade, now Roe V. BOE, **** Roe.

**** , my bad. I meant Brown V BOE

never go full retard.
User avatar #24 to #16 - thejerseyjenn (03/28/2013) [-]
it's the legal things. Like if a person had a partner that died and left them everything, that person would have to pay the country 1/3 of their inheritance. Because they weren't married.
#76 to #24 - methead (03/28/2013) [-]
thats what i thought too..

the reason to why its illegal (in some states), because it would be a pain in the ass to argue about who gets what in court. Like whos the husband and whos the wife...

I think thats ******** because we shouldnt base it off gender, but base it off who makes the money and who takes care of the kids and pays the bills.

Women are screwing us over during marriage, its ******** . All they want is half of all your **** .
User avatar #125 to #76 - greenwithenvy (03/28/2013) [-]
This I will completely agree with. if a woman divorces a guy after making the kids like her more, then by getting the kids she also gets alimony+whatever she'd like AFTER the half his **** thing.

i'm for gay marriage. But, i believe that these analogies are stupid as **** . To a highly religious person, not being able to park a car is not the same as spending an eternity in the fiery torment of hell.
#8 to #7 - anon (03/27/2013) [-]
Fair point, but still it would be me, as the gay person, who would be spending my life in hell, not the hypothetical religious person, so technically their life is still not affected
#15 to #8 - anon (03/28/2013) [-]
That's a fair point fellow Mare-Man. If they think the gay will be spending an eternity in fiery hell, then why can't they let them enjoy their lives on earth..
User avatar #69 to #15 - fredthemilkman (03/28/2013) [-]
I would be pretty bummed if I knew I let somebody spend an eternity in Hell
User avatar #19 to #15 - ellwood (03/28/2013) [-]
I'm not arguing with you. I agree. I just don't like the analogy.
User avatar #9 to #8 - ellwood (03/27/2013) [-]
exactly. I agree, but i feel like the analogy is a bit sketchy.
User avatar #10 to #7 - viscerys (03/27/2013) [-]
I'm not against it, but I'm not for it either. I don't really care about it.
