Thread Name: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
Subject: RE: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
Ake says, "Only a tiny minority of homosexuals want anything to do with 'marriage.'"

Patently untrue.

And, as usual, Ake cobbles the information in a feeble effort to support his prejudices.

The Danish parliament voted 85-24 to legalize same-sex marriage law on June 15th, 2012!

Hardly enough time to develop any kind of meaningful statistics!

I know at least four couples, three male couples, one female couple, who have been in stable, monogamous relationships for a number of years—and would like to have all of the legal rights that heterosexual married couples have—but are denied them by people with the same kind of prejudices that Ake spouts.

In the coming November election, a same-sex marriage law is on the ballot for Washington State. Immense amounts of money are pouring into the state in an effort to defeat the measure—mostly from out-of-state religious groups! One of the major groups is Romney's very own Mormon Church.

The same thing happened in California when Proposition 8 repealed the California same-sex marriage law.

Some people are still living in the Dark Ages and are hanging onto their archaic beliefs like Grim Death.

#### By the way:

Ake and Goofus, have this made into a sampler and hang it on your wall, and have it tattooed backwards on your foreheads so that you can read it every time you look in the mirror:

There is a lot more to a marriage than just sex!
