not to mention the NAMBLA clowns as they will use the "age of consent" laws.....

for instance the age of consent in Hawaii is 14

Totally going to form a "marriage" with my kids some time when it's legal (probably with their spouses by then too). Then we can get extra tax benefits.... and screw the tax-paying suckers who don't do so.

Because separate but equal doesn't work,never has. Why should anyone worry about religious people? They don't have a monopoly on marriage.
Majorities do agree with marriage.

Meh, Don't care about that. Actually I hope everyone else doesn't. I'll push for additional benefits for our situation.

There is nowhere in the United States where age of consent is lower than 16. Many states, including Hawaii, have close-in-age exemptions. In Hawaii's case it allows 14 or 15 year olds to consent with someone less than 5 years older. Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa do too, to name a few.

No, you're not getting it. When polygamy and incest marriages become legal, we're going to form one giant marriage in name only in order to benefit from tax laws (additional dependents/deduction and inheritance to name a couple).




PS. I'm not serious. I didn't think I needed to point that out on the 'mane. I'm rarely serious in any thread around here. You people are way too uptight (what do you mean you people?)

Is this equal protection?
I'm not getting you. Even without a will your next of kin can inherit your property. I don't think i am understanding your point.

Not tax free, like they pass to your spouse. Plus there's survivors benefits for Social Security and most pensions.

And more theoretically, there are plenty of scenarios where one family member would like another covered on his/her health insurance. But the federal government won't allow that.

You can pass along unlimited amounts to surviving spouses without being subject to taxation, not so with kids/siblings.

What I see happening is dude and ladies getting married to to steal benefits. We'll have to tighten that up at the federal level.

That makes the most sense. There are many non-religious straight couples that could care less what we call it, and some churches will still do the holy marriage thing for gay people too.

Everybody has the same right as you to steal benefits. I don't agree with giving benefits to anybody, but everybody should get them or nobody should. Straight couples, gays, brothers, or any two consenting adults should have equal rights to steal benefits.

Well, neither is homosexuality, and look where we are today.
Well that's the good thing about progressive liberals... they're always in search for the next 'cause'.

Ok but what does that have to do with 2 men wanting to be parteners/mates/husband and wife? You are saying that is unfair to 2 brothers who just want to live together because they don't get marraige bennies? That is ridiculous IMO.

I personally don't care what gay folks do. However when teachers and lefties start pushing for gay rights month in schools especially elementary/middle & high school along with gay day, classes featuring gay as the new normal in regards to the American family & culture and the rest of the bs indoctrinating propaganda, there will be issues.

Now you know how we feel about religion being peddled in our schools. Worship who you want, really. But do it in the closet. Actually now that I think of it, there's a passage in the bible about that...

Maybe I should take that back lol I just booked my first gay wedding reception gig lol. Man I bet this is going to be really good for me because my city has 2nd or 3rd highest gay population in the country. Something like that. Better for deejays for sure but bands will get some gigs also.

I agree it will be wierd to see the big push to normalize being gay but at this point religious people are just going to have to accept their country is gay for gay now.
