  1. How dumbass. The problem is that many of these “rights” affect other people. This is why they aren’t rights. I’m not crazy about giving rights for people to take drugs and then having to pay for their overdoses or being robbed so they can support their habit.
    How dumbass

    • That’s why you regulate people’s behavior while on them. Same as drunk driving and public intoxication laws.

      Now how do gays marrying, women getting abortions or people having sex affect other people?

      And yes, yes, the cells are a baby, etc etc.

  2. Do all the drugs, gay rights and abortions you want…dont let the goverment force me to pay for your intentional stupidity, thats all.

  3. Rico, how exactly does my marrying someone of my own gender affect you?

    How, beyond general moral indignation, does a woman you have never met, much less impregnated, aborting her fetus affect you?

    How does 2 consenting adults having sex affect you, unless you are one of them or are forced to watch?

    • Strawman. Molesting a child takes away the rights of the child. Two gays marrying takes away no one’s rights.

      • Bingo! A child is not mature enough to give consent; a child does not know the ramifications of such actions.

        Gay marriage is when two adults get married. They just have same parts. No biggie.

  4. The problem with maxims like this is that they lead to the unworkable conclusions. The basic premise of this “argument” is that we should not take away the rights of anyone. So if a child is not mature enough to give consent, is it okay to take away the rights of a child to choose? It seems now we have revised the maxim, “Don’t take away anyone’s rights, except for some special cases.” Who else should have their rights to choose revoked? People with low IQ scores? People who subscribe to different opinions? Who chooses?

    “Don’t like riding on the bus naked? Don’t do it!”
    “Yes, but that action affects others. It might offend.”

    So our new revised, revised maxim becomes, “Don’t take away anyone’s rights, except for some special cases, or unless it offends certain sections of society.” But some people are offended by gay marriages or abortions!?

    Sorry, but I’m with Rico. I am certainly not passing judgement on the particulars, but such universal sentiments are utter drivel! Or to use his perfect conclusion… How dumbass.

  5. Marriage is not the government’s business. They can’t force a church what they have to accept. Marriage is a religious ceremony, not a secular one.

    • Marriage is a government’s business, at least civil marriage is. The church can prohibit anything they want, is a private organization, but the state has no business denying this freedom.

      • Marriage is the formal union of man and woman, created by the Church. Just as girls cannot join the Boy Scouts, gays should not be allowed to join the institution of marriage. Most states recognize Civil Unions; where beyond the difference in terminology should provide the same tax, or health benefits.

  6. How, beyond general moral indignation, does a woman you have never met, much less impregnated, aborting her fetus affect you?

    How does owning a slave affect you?
    How does the man who beats his dog affect you?
