I’m so sorry I took so long getting back to you. Okay, I’m not, but I can lie just as well as any mor(m)on.
You said: “SSM has a lot of influence on my life and the society I live in. It has influence on my childrens lives and the future.”
If this is true, then you won’t have a problem explaining how it affects your life, right? How does it influence your children’s lives, for that matter?
“I have nothing directly against homosexuals personally, but I don’t want the definition of marriage devalued in a way to neutralize the importance of gender roles; i.e. a mother and a father. I believe it is important to have a mother and a father in a marriage and so do the vase (sic), vast, majority of Americans.”
If you had nothing against GLBT people personally, then you wouldn’t endorse and participate in personal attacks against us and our families. You, like all the other bigots, mor(m)ons and otherwise, are simply liars. Never mind that innumerable studies (the scientific kind, if that matters to a superstitious prick like yourself) have shown that while two parents are better than one, the gender of those parents makes no difference whatsoever as far as raising a child is concerned. Get a real argument.
“‘Bigotry’ is what you call it. I call it ‘Values’.”
Well, if your “values” state that it is acceptable to discriminate against minorities, tear apart their families, inflict emotional pain and financial hardship on them, and devalue their worth as human beings…well, I’d say your values hold no value whatsoever.
“If you don’t think I have the “right” maybe you should take a class in Constitutional Law, or better yet go try and get a SSM in Maine. I have every right in the world to vote according to my values.”
Of course you do. That’s because the laws which permit actions like what transpired in Maine and California are immoral and unjust themselves. Just because you can be an evil shithead doesn’t mean you should.
“Perhaps you missed the part where the voters “overturned” the law. When you overturn something, that means it was turned by someone first. Legalizing SSM without voter approval was the ‘first punch.'”
So, by your reasoning, the Civil Rights Act should never have been signed either? Because the majority was opposed to that as well. You’re coming here and acting like you’re in the right simply because you have numbers on your side? You’re an idiot. Get a real argument.
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
It means exactly what you think it means: you should die. Soon.
“I love the strategy of the homosexuals to go after the young voters. What they don’t realize is that young voters grow up, get married, have families, and all of a sudden realize the importance of traditional marriage.”
Yeah, except that they don’t. People who harbor no bigotry in their youth are not incredibly likely to grow up and just decide one day that they hate GLBT people for no good reason. Bigots are made, not born, and your “church” is responsible for making plenty of them. That’s why it must be annihilated.
“There was probably a time in my life when I would have voted for SSM had it been on the ballot.”
And Elvis is alive, and Keanu Reeves is a good actor, and Donald Trump’s hair is real. Give me another one.
“Now that I’ve matured and have a family of my own I’ll fight for traditional marriage till I die.”
With any luck that won’t be much longer. Feel free to take your family with you.
“To claim the tide is turning, or you are somehow winning this war, is to ignore the 31 out of 31 voter initiatives that have banned SSM.”
Not at all. It’s only a matter of time before each and every one of those is overturned. And don’t get ahead of yourself: Maine voters vetoed a single law. They didn’t enshrine bigotry into their state constitution like the others. That door is still wide open.
“Are you that blind to tell me that you are winning the war when less than 24 hours ago Maine just voted against your cause?”
And D.C. voters stood with us. You’re blind if you can’t see that things are already turning around. Your victories are temporary; ours will be permanent.
“You’re like the guy on Monty Python and the Holy Grail that gets all of his limbs cut off and is still picking a fight with the guy that dismembered him.”
You say that like it’s a bad thing. Personally, I have always been inspired by the Black Knight’s can-do spirit and unwillingness to quit. I’d expect that, though, from a coward like yourself.
“Reality is here if you want it.”
I’ve got more than enough, thank you. I don’t need the artificial “reality” being sold by mor(m)on bigots like yourself. Mundane underwear is just as good as the magic stuff.
“SSM isn’t about equality.”
That’s an interesting take on it. It’s a lie, but it’s an interesting one. Or at least an amusing one.
“It’s about redefining marriage.”
Yeah, because that’s never been done before. Your own “church” did it when they backtracked on the polygamy nonsense. Same thing with interracial marriage. And it will be redefined again when SSM takes hold from coast to coast. It will probably even be redefined again in the future. If you care so much about marriage, stop trying to deny it to us. You’d be doing a lot more if you just outlawed divorce. Of course, you and your ilk wouldn’t dream of it. Why? Because you’re selfish, arrogant fuckwits.
“Homosexuals and heterosexuals are all able to marry the opposite sex.”
So, if the roles were reversed, I assume you’d be perfectly content to marry another man. Glad to have that cleared up.
“If you want to use those reproductive parts the way they were intended you can have a marriage all day long in all 50 States.”
And just how, pray tell, were they intended? Because it seems to me that cocks and asses go together quite nicely. There’s a reason the higher power put the prostate where it is, you know.
“When you want tell me that a Phillips head will work on a Flathead screw I have the right to say NO dice.”
Your metaphor is shoddy. You’d have done better to use a “square peg/round hole” analogy, or something like that. Obviously the only thing on your mind is screwing.
Just admit that you’re a bigot, Rod. Admit that you harbor an irrational hatred toward GLBT people, and that you prefer to use your money and votes to legislate discrimination. Admit that you believe you have a monopoly on morality and that anyone who is not a mor(m)on is irredeemable and destined for hell. Admit that you’re a cunt. It feels better to say it out loud.
