Democrats defended slavery with same kind of reasoning now using to push gay rights,
First of all you need to do some research on the Democratic, Republican Party thing. They switched social positions during the last century.
In actuality the reasoning used to defend slavery is the same reasoning used to prevent gay marriage. If you can reasonably argue the reverse please present the argument. I don't listen to hatemongers like Chris Pinto and we do not argue via link. Either present an argument or retract this post.

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

Is that Pinto's argument you wanted us to watch? As arguments go it sucks.
But what's happening in this case is the minority is ruling the rest of us.
What minority? Gay rights support polls over 50% consistently. That kinda kills your argument.

So then states should still be able to allow slavery, women should not have the right to vote and children should still be working in coal mines. Got it.

not be required to change a universally recognized law that marriage is between man and woman to accommodate a tiny minority of aberrants. There are other ways of making their lives more comfortable than by making the majority miserable and depriving decent law-abiding citizens of their living.
Universally recognized law? Evidently not. Marriage is a civil affair. It follows legal codes and can exist quite nicely with no religious input.
How the hell does gay marriage make majority miserable. Anyone can make a living, they can just not discriminate if they plan on serving the general public.
Why are you fundies so hung up on other peoples sex lifes?

This is a very recently made-up application of marriage to a bogus group that has no business getting married.
Oh I forgot you are the arbiter of all that is right and good in the world.
My niece deserves every right to get married as anyone else. Just because you follow bronze age proscriptions does that mean that the rest of us have to. Still you wonder why your feeble religion is becoming more and more irrelevant.

Re: The jokes just keep coming
The government is not concerned with sins, churches are. Sin has no place in our governmental or judicial system. We are a country of laws not a theocracy intent on stamping out sin.
You have government confused with religion. The government has no duty enforcing your or any other persons religious proscriptions and beliefs.

Re: The jokes just keep coming
And your beliefs are vile and hurtful. Gays are not evil. They are people, nothing more nothing less. They deserve our compassion and our desire for everyone to have life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
This is the purpose of the Constitution.
quote:
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.
Nothing about enforcing one religions beliefs.
Besides you are now in a minority. Suck it.

Re: The jokes just keep coming
Do you know anything about Blackstone or is it just a name you picked up on some fundy site? He isnt a founding father. Founding fathers wrote numerous times that the US was not in any way based on the Christian religion.

Re: The jokes just keep coming
None of that changes the fact that AMERICAN LAW followed Blackstone's Commentaries.
Evidence please.

Now that isn't evidence is it. It is an assertion

Re: The jokes just keep coming
As I said, YOU can't tell, you have to trust someone who knows, such as me.
Wow!!
Unfreaking believable. Hubris much?
