So… you like America?
Why should anyone like the government? It is merely a monopoly of force. I love this country, but I hate my government. No man has the right to tell anyone else how to live, and that is exactly what our POTUS does.
“The United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years — or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts.
But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training. Suspects naïvely played their parts until they were arrested.
This is legal, but is it legitimate?”
You cannot expect government to solve the problems that it creates.
The Ideal Government
This picture kind of makes me wonder why some people feel the need to make others question their own faith. If they’re happy believing in God, why can’t you just let them be happy?
EDIT: I probably sounded like a bit of a hypocrite there, since ive sometimes spoken against some parts of religion because of the anti-gay stuff but i guess its like.. you can believe whatever you want, as long as you aren’t trying to encroach on someone else’s right to believe what they want.
.. am i making any sense? or am i just making things worse? i dunno. D:
There have been more acts of violence committed in the name of religion than under any other banner. It is a blight on humanity. The only true road to peace and prosperity is the completely free flow of people, goods, and ideas.
The Ideal Government
Dictatorships often come under the guise of safety. They come in the dark, full of lies keeping the people from seeing what’s really going on. (Just look through history.)
“Like a thief in the night,” the Bible speaks of Christ’s Second Coming (1 Thess. 5:2; 2 Peter 3:10; Rev. 3:3) but also…
No… this is stealing. Capitalism is when consenting individuals are allowed to freely make transactions. The only regulation the government should take part in is to restrict force and fraud.

Hill— You are right. “It is even worst when YOUR rights are taken away from you, because others want to… be proud of their own sin and to make it my sin too, by forcing me to accept it”— EXACTLY. But no one gives any respect to the voice of reason that is AGAINST gay marriage. Only to the crazies who want to beat gays up and send them all to hell. But all of us who know both are wrong, both the orientation as well as harming people just for having this orientation, we get ignored, labeled judgmental homophobes and lumped into the crazies group without any intelligent recognition of the FACTS that we are stating and without any intelligent FACTS correcting the debate from any direction. Like: 1. Gays CAN’T naturally procreate, 2. Gays are NOT a racial heritage— THEY ARE OF A TINY, SELECT ABNORMAL SEXUAL BEHAVIOR THAT ONLY LESS THAN 1% OF THE GLOBE CONSIDERS THEMSELVES. 3. Gays are described as sinfully blasphemous in EVERY major holy doctrine in EVER major religious faith in history. If that doesn’t matter to you because you are an atheist or agnostic, then the 1st two facts still should count for something. Not to mention the really weird fact that despite how incredibly small the gay population is in the globe, homosexual men make up the majority of child pedophiles. I don’t know why or what to make of that fact but it is a weird FACT that deserves to be noted when exploring the different angles of this very sorted and complex debate. I also agree with this, “it is … Video Rating: 8/10

Why does everyone grant the government the right to charge for marriage licenses? Two consenting adults have the right to do anything that doesn’t infringe on the rights of another.
Why should the government legislate that only potential breeders could marry?
Though one’s religion might mention homosexuality as sinful, and observed homosexual behavior might offend; one is not endowed with the right to an eased mind.
