9 dumbest gay marriage comparisons


 
Thanks to huffingtonpost for this lovely article, now I shall have some things to say, which of course I have had already addressed a few before, I’ll address them and the new stupidest comparizons the homophobes had mad. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/14/gay-marriage-comparisons-_n_2287055.html#slide=more269375

1)      The civil war.

Really? The civil war? You’re saying that when civil war had happened eons ago, that gay marriage will cause another civil war? Really? Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) believes that people would handle marriage like they had eliminated slavery. Ok, where did this idiot get that idea? If that were to be true, then wouldn’t Netherlands be at war with itself too? What about Norway or Sweden? How about Canada? Oh, and considering that we have legalized maybe 8 states now, we hadn’t seen anything that’ll turn into a civil war. Lindsey, go back to school.

      2)      Murder

This Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia believes that by no longer have feelings against gays and lesbians, we should no longer feel the same against murders or some horrible stuff. Antonin, allow me to reeducate your pea-sized brain; homosexuality is the same as heterosexuality. To try comparing love to murder or rape is completely asinine and makes absolutely no sense. I bet you don’t even know exactly what you’re talking about. I bet you just read your religious book and think murder is just the same as with loving someone. You’re an idiot and I am not going to apologize for it. You too need an education. I’m sad to look at this man old enough to be my grandfather and yet dumber than a 15 year old schoolyard bully.

3)      Incest

Bob Vander Pleats, president of the family leader thinks that by marrying two men together, why not allow a dad to marry his daughter. Ok Bob, you do realize that in many of the states that allowed marriage to first cousins right? That is about as incestuous as you can get. Remember, that happened long before gay marriage. Also, that is a stupid slippery slope argument; allowing gays and lesbians to marry will not and had not open doors to incest. It hadn’t happened for years!

4)      Slavery

Cardinal Keith O’Brien, leader of the Catholic Church in Scotland, thinks that by allowing gays to marry, they’ll be forced to have gay marriage. He thinks that if the government had legalized slavery, but assured no one would be forced to keep a slave. Ok, Keith, you need an education too. Why exactly would allowing marriage equality be any of your concern? Nothing is ever going to be forced onto you, you don’t have to marry the same sex, you can go on with your pathetic bigot life. Oh and I can see that you’re a catholic priest and I just sure hope you don’t like little altar boys.

5)      Bestiality

Another lovely slippery slope. An Australian Senator Cory Bernardi thinks gay marriage wouldopen doors to bestiality. Ok, as I said about incest, there had been folks who do that long before gay marriage had existed and no, it will not open door to it. Incest and bestiality cannot work as with hetero and homosexual marriage can.

6)      Polygamy

Rick Santorum thinks gay marriage would lead tom polygamy. Well one thing we know about frothy mix is that he has no brain. Polygamy has had happened long before gay marriage. It’s not going to happen because of gay marriage.

7)      Hitler

Minnesota Pastor Rev. Brad Brandon compares allowing gay marriage to Hitler’s regime in the world war 2. Brad is so pathetically dumb I just feel that the world had lost hope with humanity. He believes that because Hitler took away two fundamentalist rights from a group of people to suppress them. Wow Brad, you think gay marriage would take away rights from groups of people? That is the most stupid thing I had ever heard. NO rights will ever be taken away when another group of people have been given the same rights as you do. You are the Hitler because YOU want to take the fundamental right from certain group of people from having the same rights as you do. Shall I get a black permanent marker and scribble a Hitler mustache on you? PS, Hitler was a Catholic who had attacked Gays, Jews, Gypsies, Disabled, and more in the name of your god.

8)      Beer

Really Rick Santorum? He is so deeply obsessed with gay marriage I am willing to bet that he has a stash of gay porn magazines hidden somewhere at home. He tries to say that marriage is like a water and beer, as he had said about paper towel and napkin. Rick? You really have no clue what you’re talking about. Your analogies made no sense! Please, go back to your gay porn and shut up already.
 
9)      Paganism

Really Newt Gingrich? Really? You, the man who married several times, believe that gay marriage is like paganism? He believes that gay marriage is a violation to our society. Ok Newt, point to me where civilization has fallen in the countries where gay marriage has been legalized. You can’t find one? That’s because there isn’t one.

The shooting in Connecticut


 

 

 

 

I am deeply at a loss when I heard about the shooting in the school in Connecticut. The shooter, who I refuse to name, has murdered 20 children and 7 adults. I have read that there have been teachers who have saved the lives of many children and had given their life. They are truly heroic when they protected the children because many more children’s lives would have been gone.

 

I wish to pay my respect for the families who lost their loved ones. It is truly devastating and it makes me grieve for them.

 

We do not know much about the shooter or his motive. What we did know was that his mother bought assault weapons and her son used them against her and went to the elementary school to kill. I could never understand what goes into that monster’s mind?

 

While we grieve for the families and the victims, I want to address a few issue concerning those who said “put God back in school” and proclaiming that this would not have happened had they had prayers and bibles in class. I can’t fathom how stupid this sounds. If you honestly believe that the Bible and prayer could have stopped the shooting, then explain to me how your god didn’t stop the shooting in Aurora theater in Colorado? Was the god not welcome in theaters either? What about the churches, which your God is mostly praised and worshiped, where there’s prayers and bibles all over the church, which happens to be where kids get abused by priests or pastors.

When you tell me that your God was not allowed in school which is the result of the shooting, I wondered exactly how much thought you put into this or that you were just listening to some people who have no idea what they’re talking about, because your god, the god who is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving, could have stopped the shooting anyway. Your god could have stopped anyone from going to the school with a gun. Your god could have stopped pastors or priests from abusing a child. Your god could have stopped any parents who would kill their own child. Your god could have stopped a kidnapper before he or she could have snatched a child from the playground.

You might think I am attacking your god. I am not, I’m attacking your bullshit statement. I don’t know about anyone here who reads this, but I am sick of the “put god back” crap. Your god was not gone, your god was not banned from anything, and it’s our responsibility to take care of the affairs here.You see, it doesn’t matter to me whether or not god exists, what matters is that we have to take responsibilities for ourselves to take care of the issues. We need to stop with the blame, stop pointing fingers, and work together to find solutions that can work!

 

Do I believe that gun control laws work or not? What I see is that there is no sure fire way to solving the problem. You may think that gun control laws works, and in some ways, gun control laws doesn’t. It’s not all black and white. I think we need to found a way that can be used with common sense, logic, and even reason. We need to put our heads together and find a way to help solve the problem of gun violence and more. I want there to be no gun violence as much as anyone else. I don’t believe that gun advocates are gun-loving, crazed folks who would be irresponsible, nor do I think that anti-gun folks were stupid, paranoid ‘fraidy cats either. Both sides have valid points that we need to look at and work our way through with them.

I don’t believe that stricter gun laws would work, because criminals do not obey laws and even if you remove the guns, there are those who would use whatever necessary to kill another; bombs, fire, poison, and more. Why are there some folks so persistent on killing people? I don’t have the answer, but I do know that some folks are without capacity for empathy.

I do think that citing the amendment sounds a lot like quoting the bible verse. It’s best not to go, “Well it said so here, so…” I prefer that we think for ourselves and look at the information we can gather.

 

Right now, let us give respect to the families and the victims in the Connecticut.
