I guess they gave in, I fear this will happen in the US soon enough.

Not many places left in the world that hold up the values of marriage anymore.

The values being love and fidelity? Or the values being all about your genitals?
The values being "gays are icky!" I mean, duh.

Brent, I hate to have to be the one to tell you this, but more countries allowing gays to marry is an objectively good thing. Sorry, I know that probably comes as a blow.

Feel free to join us in the 21st century any time, though.

the mere thought of gay marriage makes you fear?

Yet the people who will actually see their lives changed by this hope your fear is justified.

And I would not rely on vacation spots like the one Locutus offered either, if history is any indication the future is not likely to leave them alone.

Yeah, I hear that same-sex marriage will destroy everything some Americans hold dear.

How exactly, I've yet to have explained.

I think what is the more appropriate question. The notion that anything of value will be lost if you allowed people to marry whom they love is preposterous. If you are not one of those people, you might not even notice it. If you dislike them so much, you will never attend, let alone participate in it, so what goes behind the wall of that Church[1] that you're so terrified to enter will remain forever inconsequential for you, without as much as brushing past your life.[2]

But much more importantly, if these are the people that you have a problem with, your priorities about the world around you are way off. With all the terrible things that people do, having a problem with two people expressing and celebrating their love for each other in the same way as all other people do is somewhere at the bottom of the list.

FFS people are already having sex with whomever they want, living with whomever they want, raising children with whomever they want. This isn't about anyone's behavior, it's about christianity's ownership of a piece of paper, a piece of paper that doesn't belong to them anyway. Why does the church (that nebulous thing that most people associate with its most obnoxious members) get to define and own marriage?

Seriously get the fuck off the ownership deal.

Re: New Zealand legalises same-sex marriage

I'll never understand the logic behind being against same sex marriage.

- 2 women fucking and doing all manner of "deviant" (re: fun ) sexual act to one and other, paid to do so, and on camera = hot; 2 women in a committed long term monogamous relationship = disgusting and unnatural and should be stopped.

- Marriage must be protect; but divorce is legal.

- "It's all about money!"; yet talk about stripping marriage incentives from the tax code, see what happens

- "It devalues marriage"; so if two loving people who just happen to be the same gender are married, that will make you love your wife/husband less and make your marriage worth less? Don't the seem to point to a problem in YOUR marriage and not the homosexual couple's?

Yeah, I know. If my brother dies, I don't get to automatically marry his smoking hot wife (Deuteronomy 25:5-10), and what's worse, is that they stopped forcing women to marry their rapists (Deuteronomy 22:28-29)! What an affront to god! Did you know that you can't give women to men as gifts anymore (1 Sam 18:17)?!

Marriage sure has changed. I weep for this nation.

Because same sex marriage uses anti-love, and when love and anti-love combine, they result in annihilation.

Thankfully the annihilation leads to a massive release of pure love energy that makes up for it.

Love is a finite resource, a fossil feeling if you will. Every time THE GAYS® use it to love someone of the same sex, it's just like siphoning gas from your car. And before you know it, multiple spouses, children, incestuous family members, animals, corpses, and inanimate objects will be allowed to get married and siphon your gas too. Then the world becomes a post-apocalyptic Hellscape like Thunderdome, except this time when two men enter, two men leave sexually satisfied. That's just science.

Re: New Zealand legalises same-sex marriage

To J, we live in a new testament world, you know that.

I'll just say I believe and support God's judgement on marriage, he is the only one with authority to judge marriage, and he has already judged it. I stand by his judgement on marriage. I will support the Bible's teachings on the value of marriage in the new testament.
