Quote# 79359

Speaking of the liberals attacking Sarah Palin’s children brings me to another subject: Same-sex marriage and child molestation. Like Sarah Palin, I have been attacked on this thread for saying ‘if same-sex marriage becomes legal, then child molesters should not be punished, either’. I have learned that ignorant people hardly ever see the truth, because they are blinded by their own ignorance.
In the USA, traditional marriage (between one man and one woman) allows teenagers of the opposite sex to get married. If same-sex marriage should be legalized, and an adult man married a teenage boy, then that would be the equation to child molestation. Some states allow 14 years to get married, as mentioned on the website below.
Only ignorant people would argue that same-sex marriage is not equal to child molestation. Heck, if same-sex marriage becomes legal, what would stop people from marrying a dog, or a cow, or anything else?

Someone doesn't understand the meaning of "consenting adults".

Sweetie, watching the Smurfs would bring you to this subject. You guys have a hard on for these things dontcha?

Well, straight marriage is allowed so they should not punish rapists either.

Ditto.

If same-sex marriage should be legalized, and an adult man married a teenage boy, then that would be the equation to child molestation.

So why is it not also child molestation if an adult man married a teenage girl or an adult woman married a teenage boy?

I'm pretty sure that most child molesters aren't interested in marrying their victims. And I know this will come as a shock to you fundies, but you don't have to be married to have sex with someone.

Heck, if same-sex marriage becomes legal, what would stop people from marrying a dog, or a cow, or anything else?

The fact that it's just a slippery slope argument?

Seriously, do these people ever really listen to themselves? Where are all the people fighting for the right to marry a dog?

Informed Consenting Adults. So long as all three of those words are met by all parties involved, the it is no one else's business. Children are not adults and animals can't give consent.

If your problem is with underage marriage, then take steps to ban that, but don't discriminate against gay adults who want to marry exch other.

And by the way, those laws don't say you have to be 14/16/18 to get married, they say you have to be that age to get married without parental consent. In other words, parents can encourage their children to get married even younger than that. Where is the outcry against such flagrant abuse? What's that? You didn't know consent laws included that loophole? Then you clearly don't care much about the issue, because if you cared, you would have done some godsdamned research.

"I have learned that ignorant people hardly ever see the truth, because they are blinded by their own ignorance."

I have learned that ignorant people are too ignorant to know that they are ignorant.

"If same-sex marriage should be legalized, and an adult man married a teenage boy, then that would be the equation to child molestation."

Implying that you have no problem with cradle-snatching as long as it's a girl. Also, I think you meant "equivalent" there sparky. Stupid is as stupid does.

"Heck, if same-sex marriage becomes legal, what would stop people from marrying a dog, or a cow, or anything else?"

First, polly want a cracker? Second, a little thing called consent. Third, you won't find anyone to make the dress, and fourth, why don't you ask Neal Horsley?

London Citizen, you need to read this line again and again until the light bulb comes on.

Needs to be said again, "Oh, the irony."

An adult talking a kid into sex != consenting adults. Morons like you should take their head out of their arses.

We should just start flying around airships that display "MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN TWO CONSENTING ADULTS". Maybe that would finally get the message across to certain fundies.

I didn't know Sarah Palin had time to visit internet forums. Shouldn't she be trying to figure out what a vice president's job is or gaining foreign policy experience by looking at a map of Canada?

if same-sex marriage becomes legal, then child molesters should not be punished, either

And if ducks go Washington DC then pickle lemonade chainsaw bicycle.

Only ignorant people would argue that same-sex marriage is not equal to child molestation.

Exactly! Just like only a complete idiot would argue that Christianity is not equal to nuclear war.

Heck, if same-sex marriage becomes legal, what would stop people from marrying a dog, or a cow, or anything else?

If you grab a man's hand to shake hands with him what would stop you from grabbing his dick?

That is one fucking hell of a slippery slope...

2/10/2011 8:11:47 AM

By that logic, child molestation is already allowed in some places. But I guess it doesn't count when it's inflicted on teenage girls by adult males, because, hey, it's traditional.

Anyway, the sexist laws that allow grown men to marry female children wouldn't apply to gay marriage by default. Since, y'know, they do not apply to adult women that want to marry underaged boys.

I'll leave the usual slippery slope alone, because, well, when you've seen the exact same "argument" a hundred of times, it just becomes too boring to care.

2/10/2011 8:15:33 AM

So what you're saying is, if a heterosexual adult (legally) marries an underaged teenager, it's not child molestation, but if a gay does that and it's decided to be as equally legal, it is child molestation? Great thinking, dumbass.

Very few states allow marriage at such a young age. Even then, there are statutory rape laws preventing the situations you describe. At the current time, what's to stop a heterosexual pedophile (well, technically he would be an ephebophile, but let's not be pedantic) from marrying a young teenager?

"By that logic, child molestation is already allowed in some places. But I guess it doesn't count when it's inflicted on teenage girls by adult males, because, hey, it's traditional."

Two Words: Tony Alamo. A fundie preacher. He considered it a 'tradition' to take lots of little girls over the state line to have sex with them. Thus a serial statutory rapist. The only way he's leaving prison is in a box.

Bible Belt. Trailer parks. Inbreeding. Just sayin'.

"Like Sarah Palin, I have been attacked on this thread for saying ‘if same-sex marriage becomes legal, then child molesters should not be punished, either’"

If you knew a quarter of the things about your poster girl of the Religious Right, you'd be attacking her too. About her hypocrisy, re. attacking teenage mothers - even reducing welfare payments to such - when she couldn't even exert her own 'Christian' moral control over her own daughter - Bristol - who got herself knocked up out of wedlock.*

And you wonder why she's referred to as Sarah Failin? If she's 'attacked', she only brings such slings & arrows of outrageous fortune upon herself. With her own track record, she's asking for it!

*- Oh, but then of course do you redneck hicks have the 'tradition' of the 'shotgun marriage', amirite? I wonder why Sarah Failin hasn't upheld that fine, decent, Christian 'tradition', re. the one who knocked up her daughter, to whit one Levi Johnston? I guess having a bastard grandchild is another of those true blue American hometown, common sense, 'apple pie' Christian 'traditions' eh, Sarah?!

Ah, the Russian doll-esque hypocrisy within hypocrisy of the right-wing Fundamentalist Christian. It knows no bounds. Or depths of moral depravity.
