In fact, I recommend much of Dissent Magazine.
Same sex marriage revert
Hello, and hope you are well. I am still learning, and I hope only to make quality edits to this site. What was wrong with my edit to the same-sex marriage page? Specifically, what's wrong with the jargon of "Abrahamic religious faiths"? KatieKomori 10:35, 1 December 2012 (EST)
- First, I'm confident other religions ban it. Hinduism has been against the homosexual agenda, for example. Second, the phrase "Abrahamic religious faiths" is jargon at best. Third, it is a redefinition of marriage, and "expansion" would be euphemism.--Andy Schlafly 11:29, 1 December 2012 (EST)
- I don't think that your confidence is substitute for citation. Is there a rule against "jargon" on this site? What does that mean? And I guess that redefinition is another way to describe it, but I won't argue semantics and will concede that. KatieKomori 01:14, 3 December 2012 (EST)
"...contrary to thousands of years of success..."
The Civil Rights movement of the 60s and 70s was similarly 'contrary.' Is that to be supposed as somehow wrong or undesirable as well? If not, why not? Tox 07:48, 24 December 2012 (EST)
update on population info
Removed statement that population had dropped starting 2005. The cited article stated that this was the second year in a row that Ma population had dropped, not that it started dropping in 2005 in response to the legalization of gay marriage.
Further, this article from the Mass Secretary of State: http://www.sec.state.ma.us/cis/cismaf/5f.pdf shows that the MA population actual grew by at least 2.2% every year of that decade. The cited editorial clearly has its facts incorrect.
