You are right, this is the United States of America. We have solid, long standing values. They DO NOT include intercourse and marriage of same sex individuals. Gays are sick people who do not understand their own anatomy. Asking straight people to put up with their point of view is like asking them to try to see ours. It will never happen. Let's just think for a moment. A real marriage of straight partners produces off-spring. There is reproduction and creation. Gay marriage does what exactly? Appeases your lust of body and brings joy to your mind? And what else does it really do but disgust people of real marriages? Should anything good produce disgust in any way? If you can't create something from what you are doing, you are probably doing something wrong.
@AFriendtoMany Your reply disgusts me. You disgust me. If the purpose of marriage is procreation, then you're saying that right should be denied to anyone too old to have children or to women who are tragically infertile because they must only be marrying to "appease their lust of body and... joy to their mind". Get real. Hardly anyone waits for marriage today to have sex anyway. Nobody goes to the church to appease lust. Your arguments are the spawn of a filthy mind full of hate. You didn't read the article. OBVIOUSLY. Because it was about love and strength and deep, true commitment. And it was about vile, cheap-shot-slingers like you, who somehow have the right to deny loving, true, honest, hardworking Americans like the writer of this article the chance to live the life they want and deserve in this country. THEY are the true Americans. THEY are the ones fighting for good values and reason, justice and liberty -- not you. YOU are a terrified, angry, lonely little person who just happens to have checked the "straight" box early when you saw what privileges were afforded by that decision. You will not veer from pledging allegiance to the flag of hatred because you fear a world of love and equality. You envy those who have love in their lives because you don't have it, so you'll strike it down wherever you can and fall on the carcass with your sharp little jagged teeth and feed on its corpse. Well, I hope that the love you eat infuses you with a passion and sweetness you never knew before, and that it lightens your soul and allows you to see truth and beauty and to start fighting for those things instead of the hate and misery you stand up for now. And if not, I hope you choke on it.
Sincerely, a supporter of truth, beauty, and true love, wherever it may be found.
