Discriminatory Illini!

John Bambenek is at it again, trying to impose his conservative religious views on the community. Please, John, save society from our liberal ways! Save us from embracing each other with equality! Save us from treating all people equally! And please, John, PLEASE! save the institution of marriage.

After all, John is right when he says: If marriage doesn't require sex, why should one discriminate against relationships that are merely platonic? What about relationships with three, four, or ten persons? Relationships between mother and child? Even the supporters of gay marriage who are not driven by thought-blocking pettiness acknowledge that legalizing gay marriage will open the door to polygamy.


In fact, John didn't go far enough! If we allow gay marriage as a society, the whole thing will crumble like a house of cards. Dogs and cats will wed one another. My crazy Aunt Erma will be allowed to marry her pet rooster, and nothing will stop her! And! If we allow gays to marry, what's to stop us from allowing children to do the same? Instead of attending my son's 1st grade musical this May, I'll be attending his wedding and, weeks later, signing off on the divorce.

Thank you, Bam Bam, for standing up for all that is right and Right. Without you, my liberal self would eat away at the moral fiber of this great and bigoted country, destroying us all!

The idea that I have an opinion means that it is inherently an imposition on the community is novel and interesting, but unconvincing. In a democracy where free speech reigns you are just as entitled to your views as I am mine, but that's not enough.

You people want to end democracy and impose your views outright. And not just impose those views, but ban opposing views.

Why do you hate America?

Did you even read my post?

"You people"? Please...define! Who are "we people"?

Did I say your view was to be banned? Did I advocate for you to be jailed by the governement for speaking? PLEASE show me where I did that!

How is my call for equality an expression of hatred for America?

The idea that anyone who disagrees with a certain moral orthodoxy that you wish to impose has some personal failing is anything but a proper approach to a free and civil society.

"You must agree!"

"Why?"

"Becuase you're fucking insane if you don't!"

The idea that if you are against gay marriage being irrefutable proof that you are a hateful bigot and need to be silenced isn't the stuff from which democracy is made.
