Gay Marriage Political Cartoons

June 25, 2011

Political cartoons often sum up an issue better than 1,000 words.

    Dekerivers and Cmdrkoenig67 how can you ever expect anyone to be open minded to your beliefs and concerns if you are so closed to theirs? Words have power and when combined with tradition become powerful. Do not be so quick to judge others for standing beside the things in which they feel are important. You both ask for open mindedness and spout buzz words like “must”, “force” and “freedom” but both of you have never probably stopped to ask why atheists, agnostics, or other non zealot religious groups still oppose the idea of same sex “marriage”.

    I see nothing wrong with the “civil union” between same sex couples. I do however feel that calling it marriage infringes upon the beliefs and traditions of a large majority of global citizens. Grant homosexual couples the same rights as heterosexual couples but just leave us our names and traditions.

    Gritrock, marriage didn’t originaly have any religious connotation. Marraige started out in ancient mesopotamia and babylonia as a way for fathers to sell thier daughters into a sort of slavery in exchange for money, social status, political status, and/or allies.

    Not all of the LGBT community is interested in marraige, but their concern is that we all have a dream to live. We shouldnt discrimnate on race or religion, then why do we dicriminate against sexual orientation. We are all equal, neither man nor woman is above the other. thus, we should all be seen as people and if two people want to get married then why not. everyone wants to be free and freedom is choice.

    I will decide who deserves which civil rights, because I have more civil rights than YOU do.

    Hey Gritlock, can a married couple take slaves, as your Bible says people can?

    Not all people are “Christians”, Gritlock, The United States isn’t a “Christian” nation (it’s supposed to be a free nation) and you have no right to force your “beliefs” on anybody else.

    Few things.

    First, no one is forcing a minister to perform a wedding. That there are ministers that will perform gay weddings is already a fact. Priests too. Etc.

    Second, the writings in the Bible have been distorted and mispresented when it comes to gay marriage by people who wish to distort. Some rather massive studies and research over the decades with language, word usage, etc. all provide a rather insightful view if one wishes to better understand where the Bible stands on this issue…or does not stand.

    Third, at the end of the day gay marriage must be called marriage and have every single legal and social right as all other marriages.

    I think marriage is based on religious beliefs and history. And, if a person believes what is written in the bible to be the true work of God, then a marriage is between two people of opposite sex, and homosexuality is considered wrong.
    I think marriage between same sex couples is sacreligious, and should not be performed by an ordained minister. But, perhaps a legally binding commitments with all of the same rights, taxes, divorce, etc… as religiously committed couples should be available to all people.
