On Should Kansas abandon its ban on same-sex marriage?

Absolutely NO!! From the "get the government out of your personal life" right winger nut jobs.

I am always amused at the "We must preserve the sanctity of marriage between a man and a women" How much sanctity can you save with something that has 50% failure rate and a multi-billion dollar industry to undo the sanctity of that marriage. There sure is a lot of people getting handsomely wealthy from that failed sanctity.

I thought for sure this question would have been asked at the MERC.

Mathew 19:4-6......"And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”

Marriage is biblical. 1 man, 1 woman. Period.

You want to do unnatural things in your bedroom go for it, but quit "shoving" it into the public domain.

Never seen so much obsession with 1.7% of the population.

What is sodomy? Oh, never mind, I probably don't want to know---unless it's really, really fun and I'm missing out.

Should Kansas abandon its ban on same-sex marriage? Absolutely. And guess what? My marriage is just as good as it was on Tuesday. And there have been no floods or pestilence or any of that bad stuff. If you don't like same sex marriage, marry someone of the opposite sex. It's as simple as that.

This is what Kansas should do. They should have an election. Based on the vote count some people will win and some will lose. We should then allow they to decide what should be illegal if the law is constitutional.

Or we can just click our heels and say yes five times.

Personally, I believe adults should be able to enter any contract they desire, so allowing gay marriage is on by default.

" It keeps in check moral decay"

Maybe we should replace morals with ethics. Ethics don't decay.

The ban is good law. So are the Sodomy laws. It keeps in check moral decay of society and defines same sex relationships as criminal behavior. Kansas should maintain the ban on same sex marriage.

where was this "poll" taken? a block from the "celebration"? Also how come there is not anyone over 40 that was asked? Probably because no one over 40 believes in this. Once again, the noisy minority over rules the silent majority. It is way past time for us "adults" to put the kids in their place. Otherwise this country is going to hell in a hand basket. and you kids will have to live with what you have done. good luck with that.

My understanding is that this is a legal matter because if those marriages are accepted they will have the same legal and financial rights that other couples have so the state has a vested interested in this.

I am in favor of homosexuals having the right to marry. This is about more than the Catholic Church, this is about the rights of people no matter what church or faith they have, they still have the right to get married. As a Catholic I have no idea why I would be expected to tell strangers what to do with their life. Heck, I will even throw the rice at the wedding!

Only if they also legalize polygamy.

Absolutely! Why should it matter if any couple want to make a life together.

Why should big government be the decision maker? Big government runs a reckless and sloppy ship I'd say.

The heterosexual encounter has a 50% divorce rate...... hmmmmmmmmmm

Don't care. It's not my business.

Now, lets talk about that marijuana issue.

All civil rights issues are met with opposition. But that doesn't make your objection justified for the rest of society.

And just opens up a whole new group of folks that can now feel bad about themselves if they are 40 and never married and no kids. Welcome to my world, folks. Bring tequila.

Everyone deserves love and happiness, and it doesn't affect anyone else, so it's a no-brainer. Not sure why folks get so wrapped up in other people's business. Just make sure you have some good food and a well-stocked bar at your wedding, and I'll be there!

What other states ban same sex marriage?


he_who_knows_all 9 months, 3 weeks ago

Doesn't matter to me.
I'm already taken.


DRsmith 9 months, 3 weeks ago

Wow, 100%. Wonder how the ban that was put in place by elected officials ever came about? Could it be that they are simply blowing off their constituency? This might be the dumbest question from the LJ I have see to date, and that is saying something.

Kansas should consider a ban on itself.
