Also, you keep beating the religious horse, I'm not going to stop you.
The "Shut-the-hell-up-and-get-over-it" defense doesn't help the issue much and can honestly be turned around in a myriad of ways (crackheads don't bother me, I've never been raped, and my car hasn't been stolen; so why should I care about either of these?). The better position is that our country doesn't (or rather, shouldn't) be based on religious laws and the majority religion shouldn't run this country.
This is my war face.
This is what happens to trolls who mess with me.
Not my logic, though. It's your convoluted view of my logic. You see, my logic works in parameters. The parameters you presented in your "child porn" leap are completely different. Gay Marriage has the parameters of two consenting, of age, adults who are in love and wish to join their lives together and possibly even spend the rest of their lives together. Child porn has the parameters of a non-consenting, coerced minor being raped (essentially) by another, older adult despite screams of pain and begging for them to stop. See the different parameters? Yea. Not my logic. It is for THAT situation, which is why I said it for the topic of gay marriage.You said that because someone is not affected by something, they should have no say in it. I am not affected by child porn; so, by your logic, I should have no say opposing it.
It's a crime against children, much like kidnapping and child abuse is - and all those laws are in effect to help protect children. When I read over the laws, what I read was that anyone who coerced, watched, etc. (many circumstances were listed that I don't recall at the present) such acts were to serve time. MY interpretation, is that by putting those people away, we're helping to clear the streets of people who like to do these things to children; destroying their lives or making it difficult to overcome the struggles they introduce into their lives. Thereby protecting minors everywhere from this. Much like kidnapping, child abuse and even the child trafficking laws do.Ridiculous. Child porn laws isn't meant to protect coerced minors.
Yes, but in many states it requires a court order along with parental consent under 16, parental consent only from 16 to 18. By 18 - in most states - you can marry whom you please without any consent. So it's not just the child involved, it's a whole group of adults as well. In the cases I've seen it done at my high school, it was for religious purposes since the daughter was married off her sophomore year. Another couple just wanted to get married super early, and since their parents thought they would go far they consented and went on with the wedding.In many (perhaps most) states you could consent to marriage before you can consent to be in porn.
I agree and I do take that position. But not only the majority religion, any religion in general. It's great for self guiding and inspiration, just not for guiding others who don't wish to listen or believe the same thing.The better position is that our country doesn't (or rather, shouldn't) be based on religious laws and the majority religion shouldn't run this country.
Don't think that I'm the "Shut-the-hell-up-and-get-over-it" type of person in my dealings with anyone; I'm not. I'm willing to listen to anyone and their points of view, no matter if I agree with them or not (and did so everyday at my old job, where I talked politics during the elections with democrats, republicans and independents; we all found we had some basic agreements along with disagreements). That's not my place to judge; everyone has their opinions on everything. It's what makes human beings fascinating and each individual unique. Just because I posted a sliver of my own beliefs and opinions on here doesn't mean that it's a representation of who I am as a whole. Yes, I do believe that gay marriage should be legalized no matter what, but look at other countries - there are 10 that have it legalized and one that doesn't but recognizes it if done in other countries. I'm sure they're perfectly healthy nations where they see more good come from it than bad (like the predicted income to be had for the state of New York after the bill was passed). I only posted that it shouldn't matter if no one else is affected because of that particular situation, it's my justification on the matter; only one I need for gay marriage. But I can surely provide other, more proven evidence that it should be.
