Gay marriage

Liberapedia rainbow and it supports gay marriage!

Gay Marriage is when two people of the same sex get married. Gay people, like their straight counterparts, should have every right to get married. This option should be available to all.


Gay marriage is legal throughout the United States of America! The United States Supreme Court decided in the Obergefell v. Hodges case that banning gay marriage violates the Constitution of the United States. Before this decision gay marriage was illegal in many conservative states but the majority of states allowed it. [1]

Banning of gay marriage was a violation of the US Constitution under the 1st amendment. This is because seemingly the only argument against gay marriage is on religious grounds, and the Constitution prohibits the establishment of religion in the law. Gay marriage bans also violated the 9th amendment (individual rights) and 14th amendment (equality under law). Social conservatives who are homophobic tried to make this illegal, mainly because this was a wedge issue that they could use to get ignorant social conservatives to go vote Republican. At least it was a wedge issue but American voters overall became more accepting of gay marriage. Anyway they can't use that issue any more.

The United Kingdom

The law is different in different parts of the United Kingdom. Same-sex marriage is legal from March 2014 in the England and Wales, Scotland is debating the issue and will probably legalise it but Northern Ireland isn't planning to allow it. [2][3]

Civil unions

The US states of Hawaii [1] and Rhode Island among very many others recognise same-sex Civil unions as do many other jurisdictions including the United Kingdom.

Economic Solution

What Conservapedia (who claim to pride themselves in teaching economics) fails to understand is that gay marriage could be a massive economic solution. Millions of gay couples spending thousands of dollars on their weddings would pump BILLIONS into the economy, as well as attract tallented gay people to places where their human rights are recognised.


Roman Catholics and Protestant Fundamentalists oppose gay marriage but Liberal Christians are more supportive. Of course there are many religious types in between the two extremes. Churches that are LGBT-affirming religious groups will marry gay people when this is legal. Sympathetic churches will do a service of blessing for a gay partnership where gay marriage isn't legal.

Why so many heterosexuals support gay marriage

Warning! This section deals with Heterosexual sex.

Conservative Christians spend far too much time telling other people how they should run their sex lives and a great many liberals are fed up with that sort of thing.

Straight young men and older boys are tired of their religious girlfriends saying stuff like what's below.

  1. No darling! We shouldn't do that till we're married.
  2. No darling! Even when we're married we shouldn't do it that way.
  3. No darling! Even when we're married you shouldn't put that thing onto your willie.

And after they've married straight men are tired of their religious wives telling them what (God or their religious leader) does and doesn't want them to do in bed. People sometimes would rather change from the missionary position, many Conservative Christians don't like that.

Straight young women and older girls are tired of religious people making them feel sluttish when they want the type of fun men and older boys are allowed to enjoy.

  1. Nice Christian girls don't have their skirts too short or their pants too tight.
  2. Nice Christian girls don't have their necklines too low or their sleeves too short.
  3. Nice Christian girls don't wear bikinis.
  4. Nice Christian girls don't go to dance halls where they could meet the wrong types of men.

And so it goes on.

Both sexes
Well basically:

  1. Very many Human beings of both sexes and many different sexual orientations are tired of religious people telling us what we should and shouldn't do with our own bodies or with our consenting adult partners.
  2. Very many Human beings of both sexes and with very many different sexual interests sympathise with gay people because we've also had trouble over religious prudes trying to regulate our sex lives.
  3. We understand how gay people feel when churches try to stop them getting married. After all we also have problems or had problems in the past with churches trying to stop us doing the things we personally like to do.
