Gay Marriage has been Legalized in England and Wales.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-26793127

What's your opinion on this?

I personally disagree with gay Marriage and think it's the first step into something awful for you UK people.

Can't believe it took so long and is only just now legal after being approved a good while ago and receiving majority public support far longer ago.

I don't know why the OP has his opinions and something makes me think I will be incredibly annoyed should I ever find out.

;;;;
Well its been legal here in Canada for awhile.
I have attended Gay & Lesbian friend marriages & now I have a friend who is getting divorced from her partner ...so Gay/Lesbian divorce is here as well ~:P

But since they have allowed gay marriage, crops have stopped growing. The sea's have boiled. Milk comes from the cows & turns instantly sour & the sky has turned green & has streaks of brown !
No one works anymore & the whole country is falling into anarchy ! ! !

Oh wait ....my mistake , NOTHING HAS CHANGED ...except that a minority of people have/are receiving equal treatment under the laws of the land for married couples.
That's the only thing that has changed .

And In My Opinion, equal rights for All , is a good thing.


Those who have only the religious opinions of others in their head & worship them. Have no room for their own thoughts & no room to contemplate anyone elses ideas either-More

Good for them. Or in limey tea and crumpet talk, Good on them.

Why shouldn't they be allowed to get married?

It sort of destroys the purpose of Marriage, not only that but it contradicts the bible. You know, the fact that the place they're being married in is built for the reading of bibles really stresses that point.

It also turns something which is horribly morally wrong into a civil right.

Now before you pull the whole "u bigot" shit,

"The denial of the social and legal status of marriage to forms of cohabitation that are not and cannot be marital is not opposed to justice; on the contrary, justice requires it"

Which is?

not only that but it contradicts the bible.

So does the abolition of slavery. Leviticus 25:44

"'Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves."

But you don't complain about that.

You know, the fact that the place they're being married in is built for the reading of bibles really stresses that point.

The problem is that this logic quickly turns on itself. Marriage's purpose is not for the reading of bibles or else you would ban non-Christian marriages as well and punish those marriages which don't read Bibles. Since you don't do that it's clear that reason only comes up in context of denying marriage to gays.

It also turns something which is horribly morally wrong into a civil right.

How is it "morally wrong"?

Now before you pull the whole "u bigot" shit,

"The denial of the social and legal status of marriage to forms of cohabitation that are not and cannot be marital is not opposed to justice; on the contrary, justice requires it"

Who are you quoting, also this might imply we have a special government council on marriage which investigates every single marriage and deems each candidate worthy or not. We don't want drug addicts marrying after all.

A pact of eternal love between a man and a woman, and a swear to be faithful to god in this pact.

Actually, the purpose of marriage (which FYI is far older than the Bible) is legal. Marriage is a state/social institution meant to join two non-blood people into the same family. That is the basic rule and has been the only contant of marriage throughout history.

not only that but it contradicts the bible.

Since when did the Bible have any say over what our secular government does?

You know, the fact that the place they're being married in is built for the reading of bibles really stresses that point.

If the church doesn't want to marry them, the church is 100% ok to not marry them. There are numerous other secular locations to be married. I married on the campus of a public university. Don't see how that would hurt anyone.


It also turns something which is horribly morally wrong into a civil right.

Just like you attempt to ingrain outward discrimintion of others based on a solely prvate act into law?

"The denial of the social and legal status of marriage to forms of cohabitation that are not and cannot be marital is not opposed to justice; on the contrary, justice requires it"

Yes, because the Vatican has a squeaky clean record when it comes to sex...

You tell another that refuting your words misses the bigger picture. Well then, what exactly IS the bigger picture here? That your morals are more important than everyone else's? That what another does that has nothing to do with you should be under your control? What?

Yeah, it should only be like in the Bible. Me and my child wives all agree, even the one I married (and payed a fine) so God would forgive me for raping her.

You're missing the bigger picture.

1. How are points "invalid", if that means that they're wrong then just say why you think they're wrong not just that they're wrong
2. Most of my post was just questions, none of which you answered.

A pact of eternal love between a man and a woman, and a swear to be faithful to god in this pact.

So now it's eternal love? What exactly makes gays not able to have eternal love for one another? Also this implies that you're against divorce except in the most extreme cases where a spouse cheated on the other.

Lastly why does the government care about god then? It's not supposed to impose a religion therefore legally recognizing them has no part in anything religious.

Your point was that gay marriage is immoral and goes against the intention of marriage. This is the only thing we've been talking about. So no, we're not missing your point, we're just disagreeing with you.

and trail off with your morally corrupt beliefs.

How are they morally corrupt?

SO if you're so far above rational discussion, why bother making a thread? It appears in your mind there is nothing to discuss.

Why? Just because you don't agree with the sexual preference one person feels them being happy should be illegal?

Completely commendable and overdue.

Christianity doesn't have sole authority on marriage, it's a state issue and the government shouldn't discriminate on marriage based on sexual preference.

Considering how much the media here in the UK bash places like Russia and Uganda that are introducing very homophobic legislation it's surprising that we have been hypocrites for so long by not having this made law sooner.

His page's main picture is softcore furry porn. So he's probably trolling us in addition to being a furry.

I think it's good that gay marriage is now so socially accepted that people use disagreement with it as troll bait, just as they do with racism and sexism.

OT - Very happy my gay and lesbian friends will be able to one day marry the people they love. Also very glad that coming out to oneself no longer means having to accept that you'll never get married. Kind of ridiculous it took this long though, I don't think you should need a clear majority when you give minority groups equal rights but we've had a clear majority for a minute now.

Also smart move by the Tories. Cameron's gotten rid of Section 28's ghost.
