Response to beam me up scottie (Reply #56)

Tue Oct 6, 2015, 03:53 PM

61. I am not running for President or misstating my views on the topic.

Not sure what you think you got there, with your little archived "gotcha."

I still think that everyone should get a civil union, regardless of their orientation, like they do in Europe, and that should be the conclusion of their interaction with the state. Then, if they want marriage, they should go to their favorite house of worship, be it the church, synagogue, mosque, or Temple of Grondor, and get their "marriage" solemnized there.

That's not the law of the land here, though. And because it's not, you don't make fish of one, and flesh of the other--that's 'separate but unequal' and it's not cool.

You need to stop trying to play that gotcha game--it doesn't work because you don't take into account CONTEXT. Quite obviously, given your latest post! Talk about nerve!

I am discussing this issue forthrightly. This isn't about "how soon"--it's about overstating the case. That's what the SLATE writer --not a "blogger" as you continually insist -- was trying to drive home. If you're ahead of the pack by a mile, why insist it was five or ten miles?
