Oh no! The GAYS!!!

Written by: Enigma

What they do is wrong. It's unnatural and immoral. Have they no shame? Such abominations should be destroyed outright, but, since we aren't allowed to do that in this country (damn godless Constitution...) they should at least be shunned to the fringes of society. They are horrible, unrepentant sinners and surely no one that ungodly can be called a patriot or even a citizen...

Come on... Some people need to extricate their heads from their tensely puckered assholes and chill the fuck out. (I was mocking people, in case you didn't realize...)

The assholes that like to deny freedom to others (the gays in this example) are pieces of shit who don't deserve the protections, rights, and privileges that people like me give to them. How dare these people presume to dictate their moral restrictions onto others? Any citizen should have the right to marry any other citizen. When I say "marry" I mean the civil institution, of course, with all the benefits and protections it entails. I do not mean "marry" in the religious sense. Government has no right to dictate any part of a religion to anyone. Religion is effectively a "private" institution and can, therefore, exclude whomever the fuck it wants to, and no one on the outside can do anything about it. That is freedom of religion, in case some of you were confused between freedom and endorsement.

The name of the institution, be it "marriage" or "civil union" makes no difference. A rose by any other name... It is the rights and protections that such a legal institution gives the participants. So long as a married gay couple is legally indistinguishable from a married straight couple, no gay has cause to bitch and whine about what the institution is called. For those who insist on the name "marriage" when they are given a "civil union" that would be identical in rights and protections, I say tough shit. Those people are looking for acceptance, not equality. People don't have to accept gays. Legally, they simply have to tolerate them. Acceptance is something that can only be acheived through education, not legislation. And anyone who did try to legislate acceptance, would be as unconstitutionally attempting to curtail another's freedom as the people trying to keep gays from marrying.

Freedom dictates that every citizen gets the same rights, regardless of your opinion of them. It is expressly stated in the supreme law of the land, the US Constitution:

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

No law is higher than the Constitution, and those who attempt to restrict the freedom of citizens are in violation of the Constitution. They are traitors, pure and simple. Traitors to the ideals of this great nation. Traitors to the citizens of the US. Traitors to their fellow man...
