My Opinion on Gay Marriage

Gay marriage... while I'm not opposed to gay marriage, I'm definitely not going to make it mandatory! 

Seriously, gay people have been getting married for hundreds of years, they just haven't had the civil rights. 

Whether or not it's okay for people to be gay is a moral issue.  It should be argued about in churches and across dinner tables, but not in the Supreme Court.  If we, as Americans, are going to be a society that universally respects others, then we have to allow gay marriage.  The only time that the state should impose its will on morality is when there are issues of public health and safety or significant issues of economic importance at risk. 

What we know is that gay couples who have long term monogamous relationships are far less likely to acquire AIDS or other sexually transmitted diseases.  Furthermore, most gay couples are dual income households.  With the exception of extra penises and vaginas, gay couples are probably the model American household.  Lastly, we can't legislate love, nor should we try.

  1. SunFyre, I've read a few of your posts and I find them extremely interesting. Your claim to have an IQ of 165 is a bit dubious considering that the typical standard deviation of a normal IQ distribution is 15 points (putting you in about the 99.999% territory). However, I'm willing to let it slide...

    I read an article a while back about some of the less publicized consequences of homosexuality, and after reading your post I thought you might like to read it too. It offers compelling evidence why homosexual marriage, since the time of Nero and before, has never been accepted by any healthy society. There are some very important differences between hetero and homosexual relationships that people need to understand before forming an educated opinion on the matter.

Marvels of the Science: Rocks and Things

My kids have a science test today. We've been studying rocks and minerals, erosion and weathering, and other science-y geology stuff all week.

All that work, and we just should have done in Internet search. After all, everything on the Internet is factual when it comes to science.

Here's a perfect example, a quick documentary that teaches us everything we know about rocks and 2 minutes and 43 seconds.

Stretch your brains!

More Realistic Anniversary Gift Traditions

New Anniversary Gifts Destined to become Traditional My wife and I have been married for 20 years today. Over the past 20 years I made efforts each year to observe the traditional anniversary gifts. Some of them are certainly more difficult than others, and many of them are hard to find gift worthy in the modern age.
Therefore, I offer you a modern take on anniversary gifts. How many of these will become traditional?
First Anniversary – The Ramen Noodle anniversary. Let’s face it, you blew $30,000 on the wedding, and your student loan debt hasn’t gone anywhere. Share a Cup O’ Noodles. Eat with chopsticks on the floor because you can’t yet afford a couch.
Second Anniversary – The Puppy Anniversary. She’s been looking at you with those eyes that say she wants to start a family, but you just bought a new couch. Get her a puppy instead.
Third Anniversary – The Kinky Lingerie Anniversary. Leather, silk or lace can re-fire the engines after a year of flannel pajamas that smell like the puppy,…

Donald Trump Hates Freedom of the Press, But Why?

Donald J Trump is challenging the concept of free press. He has publicly ridiculed ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, BBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, and many other news organizations. Some have called out his twitter rants as being distinctly fascist.
This past week on Meet the Press, John McCain, a Republican member of the U.S. Senate, while not mentioning Donald Trump specifically, called suppression of the press "how dictators get started". Freedom of the Press in the Constitution
Freedom of the Press isn't a new concept. Our founding fathers put it into the original Bill of Rights. Even in the 1789 they realized that a free press was essential for maintaining checks and balances to the power of government.

The Press in Colonial America
Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison understood the power and value of the press. But what, exactly, was the press in pre-Constitution America? In colonial America around 1760 there were only 24 new…
