Posted 15 December 2009 - 01:54 PM

I don't even know where to start. There is just so much I am pissed off about right now with Jesus Club™ Christians. Jesus Club™ Christians are those who believe in being "born again" and that the bible is inerrant. I have many friends who call themselves Christians and some who even go to church, who are decent folk, don't take their religion shit so seriously and even go to church. Those folks are OK. It's the radical fuckers that think somehow if you're pro-choice or gay or don't believe the same shit they do that you're not only going to go to hell but you're gonna take the rest of the world with you that I have an issue with. Why can't people just leave each other the FUCK alone?

My partner and I just traveled 900 miles this past weekend to get married. Why? Because a few fucks in our state senate listened to NOM and a few constituent fucks, who convinced them that allowing gay people to get married is going to somehow send the state to hell, so we had to travel to another state that allows gay marriage to do it. WTF? Are people THAT fucking superstitious? I just don't get it.

And these assholes preaching "sanctity of marriage" are the same motherfuckers who are bopping each other and each others spouses, hiring prostitutes, reaching under the mens room stall and getting divorced and remarried left and right. They just try to cover it up. Mother fuckers. Every one of them.

I've always said that the straights have ruined the "sanctity" of marriage (50% divorce rate?), so we should give the gays a chance to restore meaning to it.

Oh and congrats! :)

Gays certainly can't do any worse with it than straights have. Even know a couple of divorced gays. It is what it is, no better, no worse.

With a divorce rate higher than 50% these days, how can heterosexuals claim to be the standard measure of marriage? They are the standard for divorce. Congratulations too! :woohoo:

I can't begin to imagine how frustrated you must be. Just wanted to point out, on the :) side, that there *are* states in which gay marriage is legal. That's a big improvement from 20 years ago! We'll all get there.

Ultimately it's going to take the Supreme Court, and by then it will have gotten really nasty. What we're seeing now may just be a preview. Also, we may have to wait for the next court; this one's been stacked with conservatives and middling moderates. Bush knew what he was doing when he selected a young cat for big chief.

We have been using the whole "if marriage is so holy and need to be protected, why don't you just outlaw divorce?" thing, so they have now formed a group called Rescue Marriage where they petition to outlaw divorce.

LOL, nice! They certainly couldn't do much worse with it. I laugh and want to strangle someone at the same time, every time I hear the words "sanctity of marriage." What a joke!

Gays are human too! Imagine that, lol.

Exactly. Thank you.

You know, it's not even just for me and it isn't just about marriage equality. I'm just so sick and tired of Christian bigots on their high horses trying to control everyone, no matter what it is exactly they're trying to control. But yeah, we will get there. I'm an activist. Our new thing is showing the conservatives how much $ in taxes is going to other states because we're now GOING to those states to spend all our money on our weddings. Sucks for businesses here that they're not getting that money, and neither is the state getting that tax money, or the fees for the marriage license.

I'm surprised there wasn't rioting here in NY when the State Senate didn't pass the bill. I guess that just goes to show that we're better people than that.


We have been using the whole "if marriage is so holy and need to be protected, why don't you just outlaw divorce?" thing, so they have now formed a group called Rescue Marriage where they petition to outlaw divorce.


Actually a marriage equality group started a similar movement just to prove a point. I think it's funny. You know they won't outlaw divorce. Too many Christians depend on it. :grin:

Just remember, most people who point to the Bible to claim "sanctity of marriage" have never really read the Bible.

Congrats on the marriage, and I agree that the whole issue is just silly. Of course, I think I figured out part of the problem here in California at least - the conservative minority went out in droves to vote, and the GLBT community made it out, but the large number of those neutral on the subject (who don't care if gays marry, but don't get worked up about it cause it doesn't affect them) didn't bother to vote on the matter. And since the conservatives outnumber the gays, they won. Talking to a number of people who were fairly neutral on the topic I discovered that they just didn't bother voting about it. That easily could have swung the vote in this state, and I would imagine several others as well.

Absolutely. Total control of everybody is what their fantasy is about; that's why they so love their rapture imagery.

I also think it's got a lot to do with sex and parenting. They can only convert so many adults; the real money is on producing and indoctrinating as many children as possible (see the Duggars of reality TV for the prototype.) Same reason they hate "illegals;" they can't stand to see any family that doesn't look and think like them having children. It creates competition.

So true about the business potential. Legalize gay marriage and pot; that would be stimulus I can believe in!

I find it amazing that people call themselves Christian (or another religion) and then to selfish terrible acts... it kind of disproves the effectiveness of religion outright. Indeed there is evidence that atheists are more moral than religious people:

Creepy Doll:

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR UNITY!

PLEASE KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU!


I am with you 100 percent. Want a kick in the teeth?

My older sister voted for the ban on gay marriage here in Florida in Nov. 08. This is the same sister who always tells me she loves me, ask for my advice and help on just about everything, AND divorced her husband of 18 years for no apparent reason other than "he just wasn't exciting."

Me? My man and I have been together 18 years tomorrow. We have no plans and absolutely no indication that we won't be together in 18 more years.

Her reason for voting to deny me my right to marry is because the bible says so. She doesn't even go to fucking church. She says she has read the bible from cover to cover but every time I ask her about a passage that is clearly contradictory or just insane she wants to know WHERE it is because she's never heard of it.

Even though the election was over a year ago, I just asked her a couple of days ago how she voted because of something she said (I don't remember what it was). I thought this entire time she was fine with my being a homo, she certainly didn't act otherwise. I feel betrayed, stabbed in the back, deceived, you name it!

Well, now it's my turn. After our huge fight where I called every name and then made up some of my own, I called her and apologized, told her I loved her, etc. I don't mean a word of it. I'm just going to let her think that every thing is ok until I find the perfect opportunity to yank the rug out from under her.

Why? Because when I told her that we she did hurt me hoping to reason with her and see how she affected someone she loves, her response is that she did not hurt me. How arrogant is she to tell me how I feel. So, using her reasoning, I am now going to "hurt" her, then I am going to decide how she should feel about it.

Jack

The "progressive" California of popular imagination is limited to a narrow sliver of coastline between Los Angeles and the Bay Area. The rest of California runs the gamut between "Midwestern" and "Montanan" in political and cultural orientation. Non-Californians were shocked at the outcome of Proposition 8. We native Californians were not.

I don't. To paraphrase a recent GQ article, their religion teaches them that the rest of us are going to "roast in a liquid shit jacuzzi" for all eternity, which cultivates an attitude of smug pity in them. Because the rest of us are dog shit to their God, it's no wonder that they treat us likewise.
