Comment: Because it's a lie.

(See in situ)

Because it's a lie.

Because it's a lie. Marriage is between a man and a woman. It doesn't matter how many times you scream 1 + 1 = 3, or whether you write it down on a piece paper and defend that equation with force. It's still just a lie.

There's NOTHING I can do to stop two homosexuals from swearing an oath to themselves, each other, and to God, but that's not what homosexuals are interested in. They know their oaths to each other are just as worthless as their oaths to God. They want that piece of paper to legitimize what their oaths couldn't. They want the legal privileges associated with marriage and I say let's get the government out of the marriage business.

I say pay your own way in the world and owe no man anything, and from there, people can begin to see each other for what they are rather than a source of plunder. Be productive and generous and nobody will care that you swore an oath to stick with your domestic partner through thick and thin. They may even find a way to respect homosexuals and see the good in it rather than begrudge them thinking all they wanted was a piece of paper and legal privilege.
