  • Straight Guys Getting Married

    Brace yourselves....

    Source: The New Zealand Herald


    Travis McIntosh and Matt McCormick wrote their wedding vows yesterday, brimming with "nervous excitement" about their big day.

    The Dunedin men will marry tomorrow, but their move has horrified gay groups.

    The pair are heterosexual best mates.

    Basically, these two straight guys are getting married so they can win a radio station contest that gives them a trip to the Rugby World Cup. They really like rugby, apparently.

    Thoughts? If you support gay marriage, do you agree with the gay rights groups' condemnation of this marriage? If so, why? It is two consenting adults, after all.

    Another question that comes to mind is this: if these two guys had lived somewhere that hadn't legalized gay marriage, would you argue that they were being discriminated against? If so, on what would the discrimination be based? (Obviously it's not their sexual orientation.) If not, well...why would you have a problem with two consenting adults getting married?

    How do you spell hypocrisy? On both sides?
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

      People perverting an institution are upset when the same is done to them. My reaction:

      "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

      There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

          Heterosexual Life Partners? Maybe a separate category, don't call it marriage!

            If you don't want to marry your best friend you don't have sexual feelings for then don't marry them, right?

              Yeah, marry= man and woman want sex with each other exclusively.

                I wouldn't say that. If somebody is physically incapable of participating in sexual intercourse, they shouldn't be disqualified from marriage.

                  Well, it's the main reason people get married, right? They shoulda kept the religious marriage ceremony and legal union for other benefits separate. That way, platonic friends could help each other at the hospital!

                        As Christians, we shouldn't find this funny IMO. Something that we would otherwise oppose does not become okay once it's politically advantageous.

                            It's irony. And it can be funny AND wrong.

                              Again, is there a BFF contract? We promise to be best friends forever, unless one of us acts like a jerk and never makes up.
