Comment: So long as "marriage" has government benefits...

(See in situ)


So long as "marriage" has government benefits...

absolutely every human adult couple deserves the same benefits. People think about marriage as an institutional thing without realizing it is also a functional entity to aid people in living their lives. Whether it's two men, two women or one of each, any loving couple deserves to have the same options available to them.

Some of you scoff at this, but "married" status conveys dozens, if not hundreds, of rights previously only available to straight couples.. down to hospital visitation rights. The tax elusion rights are the most salient example.

So many people utilize their own hatred, justified of course by the harsh mores the Old Testament's vicious, jealous, petty, and selfish warrior-god, to invalidate all that is good about Christianity. Why don't you want homosexuals to be happy? You've abandoned Christ's lessons of forgiveness and acceptance because someone makes your masculinity feel uncomfortable? Poor baby.
