Perhaps they should stop worrying about other people's love lives and life commitments and instead focus on their own for a while. Because, obviously, it doesn't matter if other people are marrying trees, cars, bananas, blow-up dolls or even Siberian huskies, the fact is nothing threatens a person's marriage but the reality of their own relationship with their spouse (though, sometimes, a really hot co-worker full of lust and desire can be a bit of a threat too, I guess).
Procreation vs. Love
As these RWCCBH homophobes clamor for reasons to deny gays the same rights they themselves enjoy they ridiculously point to procreation and state that marriage is primarily intended to make babies. Yeah, that's right, not surprisingly, the main reason for getting married, according to these lovers of all things pre-Enlightenment, is not in fact love, but, rather, to simply produce offspring.
Not wanting to get into the obvious psychological deficiencies and personality disorders that have so clearly inflicted anyone in the modern world who marries for procreation over love, let me just say that I can't really imagine these RWCCBH homophobes denying infertile individuals the right to marry. Nor can I imagine them disqualifying postmenopausal women from marriage either. So why the concern with baby-making abilities when it comes to gays? I mean, besides the obvious homophobia, hatred and small-mindedness, of course.
Fear and Loathing... and Bible Study
What's with these people anyway? I mean, they're scared of everything. If it's not God condemning them to hell for masturbating, it's "socialized" medicine turning their beloved homeland into North Korea, and/or it's "liberal educated elites" pushing evil, dangerous stuff down their children's throats. Stuff like science. Come on guys, you can't be terrified of everything, can you?
Me? The only thing that really scares me is them. That is, the only thing that really terrifies me is the possibility of these Right-Wing Christian Conservative Blow-Hard homophobes one day actually taking over America. It may seem unlikely now, but seeing that their numbers continue to grow almost as fast as their minds continue to close, it is, sadly, a distinct possibility.
And, if it ever were to happen, forget about same-sex marriage. How about life without science, government services or masturbation? And in its place nothing but a shitload of Bible study? Yeah, I'm talking about a take over by the American Taliban.
In which case I suspect that we here in Canada would feel a lot like the Dutch and Belgians in the late-1930s. That is, not exactly very safe or secure.
