Conservatists say that marriage is between a man and a woman. They never said between a man and a woman in love.

I see what you are saying, but I guess unlike bible bashers that pick and choose quotes out of the bible to fit their arguments, I don't get that message from that section. That is five words out of two very long paragraphs that go above and beyond explaining that it's ok.

I believe the bible defines gay sex as a sin. But it also defines dishonoring your parents, lust, wanting something someone else has, and many many other things as sins. It also spends way more time talking about how it's ok to sin. And your sins don't define who you are. This is the message I took from that section.

I may be guilty of what I am accusing most on the board of, by seeing only what I want to see in this. But at least I am not seeing what I want to see in spite of its absence. Which is what I fear the majority of these comments, and this post, are trending towards.

That's what is bothering me. This particular situation is him doing the bullshit he usually calls out.

Please quote the section where he calls gay sex a sin.

#17 nailed it.

I am dumbfounded by Dan forcing his agenda into the conversation. Which sucks, because up until now, his intelligent, higher road position has been what I admired most about him, and the reason I've followed his writing. To me, publicly crucifying a gay man for having straight sex and being happy (regardless of whether or not you believe it) is worse than crucifying a gay man for being gay. The anti-gay parties at least have ignorance on their side.

In fact, when a girl came to Dan on Savage Love and was terribly upset over the fact that she is gay and is terrified to tell her friends that she is attracted to men, he had the most compassionate and supportive answer for her. Why is this guy suddenly anti-gay for saying the same thing?

I don't get why you all feel the need to inject your fights/fears into his blog post.

There is no "counterargument" because there is no argument to counter. The whole "does this mean straight people should only marry people of the same sex" is just forcing your bias into a conversation that never occurred.
When he says: "Many people never get to this point in their sex lives because it requires incredible communication, trust, vulnerability, and connection. And Lolly and I have had that from day one, mostly because we weren’t distracted by the powerful chemicals of infatuation and obsession that usually bring a couple together"
He is not saying it's because he's gay or she's a female. Yes, that plays a part of it, but their relationship is a byproduct of their religion. A religion that stresses early marriage, because marrying someone you don't love is more important than having premarital sex. And young people can't be trusted not to have premarital sex, so they should just get married.

To me, all these verbal pitchforks and torches, are just as bad as "GOD HATES FAGS" signs. I think #90 hit it on the head when they said it's about the right to have choices. The fact that you don't agree with his choice, is NOT a valid reason to vilify him. In fact, it's the exact thing that you claim to be fighting against, by demonizing his post.

And even worse, to say that because he didn't say he is for gay marriage, MUST mean he is against it, is just ignorant. Again, it's the root of the position that you all claim to be fighting against.

Wow. I have admired you for so long, for being able to be so opened minded, and never lowering yourself to the "other side"'s level. But to say a gay man must flat out say he is for gay marriage, otherwise he is against it, goes past being closed minded and clear over to DOMA mindset of "If it's not specifically what I want, it must be against it."

I thought being a hipster was all about not following the crowd? I must be getting old.
