Ever Need an “All-in-One” Solution to Argue for Gay Marriage?
First off, hello again Unicorn Booty herd (blessing, if you prefer the technical term)! I dunno if anyone noticed, but I’ve been kind of MIA for the past few weeks. However, I’m back and I’m ready to start once again infusing your lives with LGBT news and general awesomeness.
Speaking of awesomeness, check this out. It’s titled “THE Gay Marriage Argument,” and I have to say that it’s a pretty accurate title. This blog post from Verbose Vomit brings up pretty much every argument that’s existed against gay marriage, and picks them apart into nothing.
Here are some of my favorite excerpts!
First off human beings do a lot of stuff that’s not natural. Eating Velveeta’s chemical cheese isn’t natural, driving cars isn’t natural, neither is typing on a computer. But we do it. Being “natural” has little to do with being moral, as implied.
Leviticus forbids round haircuts (19:27), touching pig skin or eating pork (11:8), fortune telling (19:31) the punishment for which is exile (20:6), tattoos (19:28), wearing polyester or any fabric blends (19:19), and eating Shellfish (11:10).
Lets start at something basic. “Jesus”, “God”, Lord, Savior, Heavenly Father, or any other Biblical reference for that matter is not mentioned in the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution. If the Founders intended for America to be a Christian nation, this is a fuckup of gigangtic proportions. How can you not mention a clear nod towards the Christian religions in Declaration or the Constitution by accident!?
I’ve always been kind of fascinated with how people can pick and choose stuff from that Leviticus and sell it off as law. It’s like, if you wanna quote that passage, you better be ready to give up bacon forever, and who would really be willing to do such a thing (really, bacon rocks).
Isn’t being right fun?
Which counter-argument is your guys’ favorite?
