First off im gonna say my opinion. I really hope though (i dont expect) that the moderators and those whorun this board will except my opinion for what it is MINE and open it up an issue for civilised debate.
First of all ill state my opinion towards homosexuality. I think its wrong and immoral. However i live in a world that before my time decided to except homoexuality so my opinion will mean little. However the issue that is raging now is gay marriages (especially in canada). My goverment has seen fight to decided that it will allow to people of the same sex to marry. This goes against everything that out nations were founded on and continue to thrive because. For those of u that are confused ill try to explain. In canada the goverment decided that gay marriages were legal ( and all our news is now is men kissing (vomiting) ). This effects americans because your mariage law states that you must recognize a marriage from other countries. So back to my point i want to debate wether a. homosexuality is immoral b. if gay marriages sgould be stopped
well, i'm not gonna delete you just yet. but be aware, we have a *LOT* of gay people in happy stable relationships on this board. In fact, the lady who graciously runs this site is not straight, and most likely won't take too kindly to what you just said. since this is her site, and her money that pays for its resources, what she says goes. so this thread will likely get zapped *real* quickly.
You know, the great thing about marriage is that it's optional. If the idea of gay marriage bugs you, you're free to marry a woman. If you don't want to get married you don't have to. However, I don't really see how allowing people the freedom to have legally sanctioned relationships with those they love is going to lead to problems, erosion of our constitution, or the great threat to hetersoexual marriages so many people have claimed. I have no plans to marry a woman, but hey, I support people's right to love who they love.
And I really wonder what you hoped to accomplish by posting this. It's okay to post articles of interest in the hopes of inspiring discussion, but seeking to offend, or be rude for no apparent reason just doesn't fly here. I have no idea what good can come of this topic, so while anyone who wants to is free to start a relevant, civil topic on gay marriage, I think this one needs to bite the dust.

If you want to be a bigot, that's your choice. I think it's an unfortunate one that'll greatly inhibit your quality of life on a planet populated with a wide diversity of peopple, but it is your perogative.
But bigotry of any kinds -- be it sexual, racial, ageist, sizist, classist, the works -- isn't allowed here at Scarleteen, as is stated clearly in the guidelines.
And yes, that I don't encourage nor wish to support bigotry may well say much about my character. Here's hopin' someday you'll figure out what it is that says.
But while you're here at the boards, this sort of rumination needs stay in your own head or go elsewhere if you want to be allowed to participate here, and that's just that. You agreed when you registered not to bring it here, and you, like any other user, are held to that agreement.
