Seattleblues, merry Christmas to you too, in your delusional world. I hope you gain the enlightenment you seem to think others need, in spite of your desperate need to cling to your prejudices and your regular denial of facts.

I hope in the coming year you also take some of your own advice. Grow up, act like an adult, and learn to treat others with respect and compassion. Then you'll be a Christian instead of merely claiming to be one.

@38 You only have to add that you have no intent to disparage because you spend so much of your time here making disparaging remarks. I give you some credit this time for at least pretending to cite specifics, even if they're specifics based only on hearsay and what you think is true rather than anything based in actual facts.

By the way, Seattleblues, I hope you have a nice holiday. I would wish you a merry Christmas, but, since you're not a Christian, I guess you don't celebrate that holiday.

@27 Do you visit conservative blogs and pretend to be an liberal atheist just to get people riled up, or do you only come here and pretend to be a conservative Christian? Just wondering.

@83 For Seattleblues to benefit from exposing himself to alternative points of view he'd have to be willing to engage in serious debate and to admit that he's been proven wrong on numerous occasions. Furthermore he'd have to actually read the posts and the comments, not just skim over them and then repeat the same empty rhetoric he trots out for everything else.

I'm sorry, but the quote from Nietzsche isn't appropriate because Seattleblues isn't staring into the abyss. He is the abyss.
Dec 13, 2011 Tiffany Lamp commented on Watch Mitt Romney's Uncomfortable Gay Marriage Showdown.
@16 You married your wife, supposedly, because you love her, and she married you for the same reason. But you're suggesting that two people who love each other shouldn't be allowed to marry if they're of the same gender. And you've admitted that your only reason for believing that is because you believe your religious beliefs should be imposed on everyone else.

Really, how hard is this? More importantly, how hard is it to figure out that making up things and ignoring the arguments made by people who are smarter and better informed than you are, many of whom, unlike you, actually have a stake in this argument, doesn't make you right?

@25 Do you really think ignoring intelligent, logical, reasonable counter-arguments and facts automatically makes you right?

@39 Maybe you should try dropping the sarcasm and take an honest look at yourself and the things you say for once. You criticize others because you claim they ignore facts or because they supposedly want to impose their beliefs on you, but you have no problem ignoring facts when you make an argument, and your arguments are mostly about your desire to make the rest of the world conform to your beliefs.

You claim that you "accept that most of the teachings of my chosen faith are basically good", but that's an understatement. Your statements make it clear that you think your beliefs, even ones that have nothing to do with your "chosen faith", make you superior to others, and that anyone who disagrees, even if they have facts and logic to back up their position, is inferior. But if those teachings are so important to you, really, why do you retreat whenever you're challenged? Maybe it's because you don't really believe in those teachings. You just like to stir people up and take a lot of smug satisfaction in getting the attention.

I'm not going to say you're a lousy Christian. You'd have to be a Christian to be a lousy one.

@47 Even if they weren't original ideas at least Dan is trying to make the world a better place, and his opinions are informed by evidence and thoughtful debate. Seattleblues can't say that. All he can do is get attention by throwing the internet's equivalent of a temper tantrum, and repeatedly demonstrating that for all his talk about morals he doesn't really have any.

@78 "My personal definition of marraige carries no weight with the state. Nor does yours, or Dan Savages. The collective opinion of generations of the majority of the culture though? Yeah, that might carry some weight."

In other words you're admitting that you're against same-sex marriage because of the religious belief held by a large number of people over a long period of time is that it's wrong. I know you're trying to pretend it's something else but it really comes down to you wanting to impose your religious beliefs on others. You're admitting that logic doesn't carry any weight for you, and neither do facts.

I really thought you'd given up making this argument because you've had your ass handed to you so many times, and, really, I think it's like every other argument you make. It's not what you really believe. I don't think you really care of people of the same sex get married. I think you just bring it up because you enjoy stirring people up. Be my guest. Nobody's going to infringe on your right to sound stupid. I just hope you remember how childish your own behavior is when you accuse others of being immature.

@65 You keep citing biology, but marriage isn't an issue of biology. It's a social construct. You do recognize the difference, don't you? Once you understand that there's a difference maybe you'll admit that even your poor understanding of biology isn't a basis for denying marriage rights. For most people marriage is about love. That may not be true of your marriage, but some people marry because they genuinely care about each other and want to share their lives. I know you don't have a glib comeback for that so you'll ignore it, but it doesn't change the fact that your argument isn't based on anything but your religious beliefs. And in spite of claiming that "I have no right whatever to deny an adult the right to practice whatever consensual sex they wish based on my values, religious or otherwise" you've proven that's exactly what you believe.

Besides, you've already admitted elsewhere that Dan and Terry are married. So either you were wrong then or you're wrong now. I would say pick one, but I know your beliefs change to fit the argument.
