'What About the Rest of the Sins That Are Not Illegal?' Patch Comments of the Week

The south suburban reaction to the president's endorsement of gay marriage sets off a wide-ranging debate on civil rights and religion.

In response to the South Suburban Patch network's  poll, several Patch commenters opened up a debate.

, from Oak Lawn Patch, writes:

"You can't make gay marriage illegal because it's a sin. ... What about the rest of the sins that are currently not illegal? Gluttony is a perfect example. If gay marriage is going to be illegal on the grounds of it being a sin, then it should be illegal to be overweight."

, from Homewood-Flossmoor Patch, writes:

"I believe in small government. I believe government should stay out of our bedrooms and out of our decisions over our own bodies. I believe that without choice there is no freedom. I believe every person should have the right to choose."

, from Oak Forest Patch, writes:

"The problem for me with gay marriage is what it then leads to. The wanting to 'adopt' kids, and raise them in an unnatural environment."

David, after 58 years of life I believe its clear that I have a better grip on reality than you. I actually was a college and high school teacher for three years, and I substituted at over a dozen local high schools when I had a more flexible schedule. If you don't think that public school and teacher attitude is a MAJOR contributiing factor to student failure, you really ought to get out more and learn a bit about public education. As far as "poor people being lazy", are you suggesting that a lazy person won't likely be poor? Are you suggesting that NO people who are poor are lazy or stupid? Are you suggesting that in America people who study hard, work hard, save hard, invest smart and don't screw up their lives by making poor choices and becoming single parents won't be prosperous? If you really think that, you truly are delusional, sonny.

Well Bob, if I used your own analysis, then apparently you were a bad teacher. However, you're pretty much wrong. It was nice of you to prove my point/assumptions, thanks!

We The People have become so incredibly judgemental of EACH OTHER. The Land of the "FREE" and the home of the Brave have been put through the wringer and the meat grinder by the corrupt politicians and the the criminal banks. They have been robbing the people of their rights, wealth, property and freedom EVERYDAY... for the last 11 years and we are squabbling over other peoples rights...?

They have social engineered us into believing the war is with each other when really it is with the Foreign controlled Corporate Global Government. They have us fighting over each others right to live their lives the way they want to. While they are stealing everything from US. In the YOU TUBE video of J.F.Ks speech on SECRET SOCIETIES he talks about the monolithic plan by this cabal to overthrow the creator's plan for everyone to be free and independent. .
