A few years ago, I was on the other side of the fence on this topic. But the more I read, thought, investigated and attempted to defend my position, the more I realized that I couldn’t. I feel very strongly that gay relationships should be supported by society. I have grown convinced, however, that the term ‘marriage’ should not be altered or adjusted in any way.
Let’s face it: We should not attempt to force into an old construct something that was never meant for same-sex partnerships. We should welcome the opportunity to christen a new tradition, beginning a new chapter in the history of gays and lesbians within American society. Same-sex relationships are different from heterosexual relationships, and gay men and lesbians need to accept that and design their own tradition.”
National Capital Tea Party Patriots co-founder Doug Mainwaring
I agree, Doug. We also need another term for gay "adoption" and we shouldn't call the kids they adopt "sons" and "daughters," either. Same-sex households are different from heterosexual households, and gay mean and lesbians need to accept that and design their own tradition.
As long as you accept I get to design my own tax system, Doug.
No one cares.
I'm so tired of hearing about it as an "issue" my head's going to implode. We must be the laughingstock of the world, squabbling over two dykes getting hitched- when the country is spinning down the proverbial drain.
As for abortion: it's always been with us. It always will be (in one form or another). The end.
Oh, Doug, thank you. We take you so seriously.
Now, go drown in a big pot of tea, you useless twat.
"I have grown convinced, however, that the term ‘marriage’ should not be altered or adjusted in any way."
He thinks the definition of marriage has never changed? Idiot. Polygamy was very common in the ancient world.
"We must be the laughingstock of the world, squabbling over two dykes getting hitched- when the country is spinning down the proverbial drain."
No, the "laughingstocks" are the people who think it doesn't matter. Civil rights matter, teabagger moron.
Gay Marriage is about acceptance and no longer being treated as second class citizens (while paying the same taxes as every other regular citizen).
Mr. Mainwaring avoids the core issue that riles up all the homophobes who cling on to ther superiority complex where gays, fags, homos, lesbians, dykes, trangender, freaks, etc. remain below them.
What a sell-out Uncle Tom whore. What a treacherous slimebag. He's the gay equivalent of a "house nigger." When I see gays that are that disloyal, it almost makes me nostalgic for England's old treason penalty: hang/draw/quarter the son of a bitch.
Gays should also stop referring to themselves by those other outdated constructs "people", "human being", "citizen", "voter", "taxpayer".
Really, only boring traditionalists like MItt Romney see themselves this way.
We are not asking to alter the term marriage. It will still be spelled with two Rs and two As after the election. No serious mind wants to change the word.
What does matter is the legal rights that come with the institution of marriage. All we are asking about is equality.
For those who claim that Domestic Partnership is acceptable, my response is that 'Separate but Equal' thing worked sooooo well.
Can we get our own water fountains and swimming pools, too?
Shorter Gay Tea Party Member message...
I can't even get laid in a back room at Log Cabin Party!
Equal protection under the law for all is a high minded American principle embedded in our Constitution and is completely lost on bigoted, mindless partisan teabaggers like Doug.
Dear Log Cabiners,
Even if you bash other gays and vote Republican, daddy STILL won't accept that you suck dick.
GIVE. IT. UP.
If you don't want to marry someone of the same sex, don't. Just give others the freedom to do something that's right for them.
Why is this so hard for people to understand?
Dear Doug, thank God the African American civil rights movement left house-niggers like you back in the 19th century.
You do not define yourself by your sexuality but your GOP Massas DO.
Now go make Miss Anne a proper pot of tea, bitch.
Great. Agreed, and it can ALL work, as long as heterosexual married couples GIVE UP EVERY ONE of the 1,200+ "special rights" that come automatically with civil marriage!
He and John Schlafly would make a cute couple.
Clearly the issue is never going to affect [bold]him[/bold], because no self-respecting gay person would want to be married to him.

Hold on here. We have no idea if he's rich and in poor health yet.
Have we coined a new term then for gay morons?
Log Cabin republicans are the lowest, inbred, sociopathic, embarrassing dregs of the gay community. It's the same way Mississippi is the lowest dregs of the white community and Jamaicans are the lowest dregs of the black community. I have difficulty seeing these selfish, greedy, stupid "gay-house-niggers" as members of the human species.
If I were to read an obituary of a Log Cabin republican traitor-whore, I would jack off and cum like water from a broken fire hydrant. I wouldn't be able to stop myself. Log Cabiners are the absolute, treacherous scum of this planet and need to be destroyed. The very subject of their treason makes me feel violent.
While we are no longer allowed to marry non-jews, our vote will ensure that we won't go off the financial cliff that we are headed for.
And that is clearly much more important than something like this.
R26 tell us how you really feel
What a moron. I'm so glad that he's convinced himself, because he hasn't convinced anyone with half a brain.
He can forge ahead with whatever new "traditions" that he wants to, but that is hardly the point of this fight. What the rest of us expect is equal rights and equal treatment under the law. Nothing more but certainly nothing less.
Nothing is more beautiful to me than a Log Cabin republican gay traitor's intestines being pulled out of their body and hanging on a stick for the general public to see. Worthless, evil, greedy traitors. Most disgustingly dishonorable homosexual men in the history of the human race. SOMEONE KILL THESE DISGRACEFUL FUCKS!!!
It's always the ugly ones.
Have you noticed?
Here's what Log Cabin Republican treacherous "house nigger" filth really need: bleeding to death on an asshole-disfiguring Spanish Inquisition torture device called the "Judas Cradle." A more death-deserving, sell-out, evil WHORE doesn't exist than a gay Republican or Christian.
Now that you have been fucked raw by the General Electorate, I want to tell you that there will be NO cash on the bureau, NO flowers and NO thank you.
You can clean up the bloody sheets yourself.
You deserved to take it dry.
