 Seeing this country erupt about "marriage equality" makes me realize that the people of this country don't seem to understand the meaning of priority management. When the words "gay" and "marriage" are used, people have no problem raising their voice. Yet, when something like the National Defense Authorization Act is passed, everyone stays quiet? It really does annoy me.

Yep it's irratating. People are really fucking stupid. This is why I'm starting to ask the question why exactly should I care about anyone other than myself and the small group of people that do right by me?

I'm starting to feel like everyone else is a liability and should be dealt with accordingly.

^I believe that's what Rand termed rational selfishness.

Well obviously the right to a State-recognized marriage is so much more important than freedom of speech.

Right?

Lets just take the state out of marriage completely. Everyone in this country seems to be trying to anesthetize themselves with issues that do not matter. Until we eradicate religious morality we will live in a world of zealous ignorance.

It's political sushi.

What do I mean?

People, mostly women, love to talk about how much they love sushi. Why? They look "cultured" and "open to new experiences" when really it's them convincing themselves they're cool for eating raw fish.

Same goes for gay marriage or that bullshit "war on women."

Congressman Justin Amash did an open Reddit Q and A. What were most of the questions? Gay marriage.

I can't count how many times I've seen "the civil rights movement of out time" on social media. Really? You got burning crosses in your front yard or you having to face down riot police with water hoses and attack dogs? No? Shut the fuck up then.

People are latching onto gay marriage, when in all honesty, it never enters their heads 99.9% of the time. They just want to be seen as "open" and as a "political activist."

And dressing in speedos and thrusting your crotch at people going "accept me you bigot!" is not political activism. That's just being a whiny attention whore.

I wrote an article some months back where I said that the Gay Marriage people were participating in the same fallacy that they claimed to hate.

I really don't care.

I find it hard to get pepped up about gay marriage since I'm more concerned with broader applications of the principles of voluntarism.

Don't get me wrong: I think the law is more libertarian than the previous law. However, this worries me to what else the courts can overturn: the law that made marriage between a man and a woman was passed perfectly legally. If the courts can override that just because they don't like it, what else can they do?

Another problem with gay marriage: does this mean that churches are now forced to accept gay couples even if they don't want to? Wouldn't refusing them be "discrimination"? When gay marriage spreads to every state (as I'm sure it will), are the conservative southern southern churches going to be forced to marry gays? I can see a whole host of problems coming.

It's funny how those on the left will support the state action when it favors their position (gay marriage in california, towns voting against fracking, state health care, etc) but when it supports a right wing position of any sort, states having power over the federal government is neo-confederate nonsense.

Of course, this would all be solved if government just got out of marriage all together.

But who cares, it's just those nut-job Christians who hate gays!

Having been to and lived in the South for a few months when I was a kid I can tell you those people aren't about to accept gays. The Southern Baptists church is what my paps refers to as a Fire and Brimstone denomination, when he was a kid he was told that nothing he ever did no matter how righteous would be good enough to get him into heaven.

That's the one thing I hate about the South the religion, the hatred of homosexuals and the racism. Get rid of those things and the South would be a pretty nice place.

@Hanzo I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the laws the lefties are proposing aren't going to force churches to accept gay couples.

Although, I am wondering if the asinine anti-prejudice laws that the lefties have had pass could be used to allow couples to sue churches that refuse them.

Exactly, like MAM said I can't imagine the anti-discrimination laws on this subject going over well in the South. It's not that I think that discriminating against gays is okay- but the government has no right to force the churches at gunpoint to accept them.

Agreed.  And I suspect this is one of the places that the (true) far-left and the (true) far-right agree: one of the things the state does is try to control the conversation. http://blackgirldangerous.org/new-blog/2013/3/27/6-things-that-happened-while-yall-were-pre-occupied-with-gay-marriage

It's the exact same phenomena as when people report on someone saying "nigger" instead of reporting on the number of black men arrested.  It allows them to look like they're doing something without having to threaten the system, which could get them fired.

What are you trying to suggest, that the media is controlled through State licensure and access to information?

Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah...
