I personally think that it should be legal cause it doesnt hurt anybody and everyone has the right to marry who they love.

I should probably make it clear right now that I feel that way about almost every culture and society, I'm not singling out Judaism as the one that should do it or anything, I just feel that it isn't worth sacrificing love and/or your happiness just to marry someone in order to preserve a culture.

Now New York is gay.

But anyhow, if a state does pass a "We love gays and I am gay and they can merry noaw" law....

The church can say... Get the Freaking Hades out of my Church!

Church's don't have to merry gays.

Well you wouldn't know it if you're christian because you're ethnicy or culture was never in a threat of extinction. I would never be happy if I would be a part of its destruction. That's how I feel and apparently about half the American Jews too.

i feel the same. i think colture is important but not as love. also, why should the woman give up on her culture instead of you? i think 2 people with 2 different cultures can hapilly live togather. again as avorne said. the past is important but not as the present or future. i will never throw a life that could be beautiful for something like culture. it will be difficult espacially with raising children but if that love is strong enough it will work out

Christian? Why would I be one of those? -shudders- I'm an Atheist. Anyway, Judaism isn't at any risk of extinction, you've got extensive literature and books about your culture and history that will serve as eternal reminders of the culture - there's no longer any need to pass on the culture through blood. If you don't want to be part of it's 'destruction' then just write a book or something and pass it down through your family to serve as a reminder of the Jewish heritage.

Our favourite guy is back. Everdead, wrote you a post a few pages back. Check it out.

New York is not gay - it has legalized gay marriage - bit of a different concept.
Churchs don't have to marry gays no. We have civil partnerships here which i believe to be as good as marriage because many straight couples marry in a registry office too. So getting married in city hall is no bg deal - it's prettier than the majority of churches here.

For gay marriages, let them have all the rights for marriage but call it gay-marriage, partnership, gayriage or whatever you want.


Again your just having something that is marriage in every sense but the word.

Giving those economic benefits to people who aren't going to raise any kids (most of the gay community) is unfair and wrong.


So if a heterosexual couple decide or for what ever reason are unable to have children you would consider it wrong for them to have the same economic benefits as a couple who will/could have children?

Also, as I said, the devorse is problematic for gay communities because the current system makes the "man" pay the "woman" after devorce. Again, all so the woman can have support for growing children.


I hope this aspect does get changed as well, it's another aspect that needs a face lift. I may be wrong but it's not always the man who pays, that's just the ruling the majority of the time.

As I said culture changes with time. What it sounds like your clinging to is stagnation.

@ Jeff
Yay! I'm a favorite guy! I think that's good?

True true, city halls are most of the time prettier then churches.

But you still have to have a Priest.

To marry a couple in city hall? Judges also perform marriages, and they do that in city hall.

@Everdead. No. No you are not.
I'm a lesbian, you're a homophobe - don't think we'd become BFF irl.

Moe is right, Judges can administer marriages - they do in the case where a catholic is divorced and want to remarry. Usually this doesn't happen in a church, but in a registry office at city hall.

Wait.. Your a girl? ._O
Homophobe... I'm not scared of Gays.

Those ugly Jocks making fun of kids with Gay parents.
Then the Girls with gay parents are even worse. Girls try to maul each other mentally.

Ancient Egyptians are gone and turned to history after mingling with others. No I do not wish that would happen to my people. I take pride being part of my people and like I said, many have died to preserve ourselves. Taking another 3months of pickups in order to find a new girl to love is nothing. You guys really underestimate the number of fish in the sea. You think you are born with 1 soul mate and that's it?
For danger of extinction, as I said: half the American Jews are marrying non Jews. How long will the largest Jewish community last?

I'm saying change the law about it from the regular one.


So if a heterosexual couple decide or for what ever reason are unable to have children you would consider it wrong for them to have the same economic benefits as a couple who will/could have children?

Heterosexual couples are much more likely to grow children, only a minority doesn't have a single one. By economically assisting them you increase their chance of having children even if they still don't have any. For gay couples its much more rare to have (adopt) children and even illegal at some parts.


I hope this aspect does get changed as well, it's another aspect that needs a face lift. I may be wrong but it's not always the man who pays, that's just the ruling the majority of the time.

That law is for a reason. The wife- the one who takes care of the kids, needs that economic assistance. Thats how the whole marriege system works- the man takes care of his wife so she can make children. Even when they devorse he still helps her. If gay couples stick with system without making a new one, how long will it be until they get fed up with the "husban" paying the "wife" after devorse and push for a chance in the whole system?

yeah true but depending on religion/culture they see that as a taboo. but in the western world your free to do as you like. Why does it bother people its not like they doing anything in front of people? they usually keep themselves to them self and other fellow gays. but the point in marriage i don't really see yeah its to people who loves each other but why get married to prove that? definition or marriage is a gamble coming from its or origin but that doesn't matter im young i probably change when im in my 30s lol.

i got gay friends and they are actually funny and down to earth people, also good for fashion tips and they know more about girls cause they more in touch with their feminine side yeah im dragging on here i'll finish.

Don't believe in the existence of souls, so no.

I'm saying change the law about it from the regular one.


And what rights would you want to take away?

Heterosexual couples are much more likely to grow children, only a minority doesn't have a single one. By economically assisting them you increase their chance of having children even if they still don't have any. For gay couples its much more rare to have (adopt) children and even illegal at some parts.


Again this is a fight for equal rights, that would include adoption. There are couples that can't/wpn't have kids regardless. What does I matter if the group of heterosexuals not having kids is minority? besides marriage isn't all about having kids anyway, so this argument fails on at least two fronts and just makes you look like a bigot.

That law is for a reason. The wife- the one who takes care of the kids, needs that economic assistance.


That's not always the case and there are many times when the mother is awarded custody of the children when the father would actually be the better choice.

I'm glad you consider it a right but why do you think it's so wrong?


Eh, i'm not going to get into religions but thats the way I grew up.
Me and my parents long ago actually argued on this issue, my parents are extremely against it. Me on the other hand, I feel like you should be able to marry someone and whoever you want, no matter if they're the same sex. If you want to buff **** someone that's your concern, not mine.

Especially if you live in America this is a ****ing free country, that's not right >.>

I mean how much harm is it going to cause!?
