Shua, TJ isn't your regular gay marriage opponent. He is truly malicious about it.
Their partner would not be permitted to enter my house as a partner and my child would not be permitted to see his/her partner.
Anyway the amendment is, as jfern stated, about more than just marriage.
Funny that TJ says he would treat his own child
like this, and calls me
Oh heaven forbid a parent have rules they expect their children to follow!? Imagine that!
Abuse = making rules, now? Okay.
Not allowing a kid to have a gay relationship is not abuse that's a rule. If I used to to verbally attack my child or attempt to drive them into depression or lock them in their room indefinitely then it would be abuse. But I refuse to accept that expecting a child to live in sexual chastity under my own roof is abuse. That is not a concession I will ever make and if required you call the police and haul my butt into prison.
You think that keeping your kid away from someone he loves is not abuse? Really? You think that keeping your son away from his boyfriend- someone who could be the most selfless and kind person he's ever met- simply because he's a boy, is moral? I can't convince you to think otherwise, but I can tell you that you definitely have a strange view of what morality is.
Anyway, as Alcon said, this thread is a trainwreck. I am closing this. Just PM each other, now.
