Marriage - is indeed "traditionally" about one man -- OWNING one woman.. (or more than one)....

There may be baggage, but as I see it the legal thing is what people want from marriage. i.e. if you're gonna be committed to and possibly raising kids with another person then making a legal contract makes sense, so that everyone is protected. Next of kin status (in case of medical stuff), divorce... all that legal stuff is neatly packaged and standardized with marriage. *That's* what people want, not access to some archaic ritual.

You left out a giant fluffy white dress, men sweating trying not to pass out in tuxes, awful hair, punch, cake, overpriced flowers, some awful tone deaf soloist and family drama.

If I get married again, it will be me, the lucky gent, and some random islander officiant that barely speaks English. Or the courthouse and a judge. I dunno.

I volunteer my officiating services as I am both an ordained minister of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and a Dudeist priest. Smile

LGBT? Not in my state.
I used my ordination to marry a couple this February. Nothing fancy. The apartment of the bride's mother, no tuxedos, no ties, but they were happy as hell.

I told some LGBT friends I'm ready and willing.

Here's the problem with that statement - you make a comparison between horrible parents and gay parents, as if they are equivalents. You are, pure and simple, a bigot.

The proper grouping here is between adoptive parents and non- adoptive parents. Generally, people who go through the adoption process are less likelyto be abusive, neglectful, etc. There are a lot of reasons for this and being gay isn't one of them. But, gay couples who adopted will generally be good parents for the same reasons all adoptive parents are.

Being gay says nothing at all about who you are as a person. Making comments about "gay parents ", as if all gays have common personality traits, is moronic.

And bigoted.
