The government is trying to regulate your individual lives, nice straw man. No government agent is going to come to your house once a month to ensure the love making is satisfactory with the bare minimum legal amount of cuddling afterwards.
They're trying to level the playing field for everyone, so all people have the option if they so choose to take it.
Fuck these people.
I hadn't been following any of this stuff until someone I know in Australia pointed out some of it. Amongst the thing I was not aware of is that apparently Gloria Jean's coffee is basically donating a shit-ton of money to this and to other conservative Christian causes because, as it turns out, they're run by batshit crazy conservative Christians and tried to disguise it. Gloria Jean's is huge over there, but not so much in the US. Still, though, I buy their coffee on occasion and now I know not to, so spread the word I guess.

This made no fucking sense.
So if you're infertile, you can't get married?

Stars for evil and stupidity.
The government legislates marriage to ensure the equitable distribution of property acquired during the marriage and the well-being of any children produced or adopted during the marriage. They also want to protect the rights of the parties involved, e.g. ensuring one spouse has the power to make critical medical decisions when the other is incapacitated. These are things ALL couples need and deserve.
The government doesn't give a shit about anything else. It doesn't care if you're getting married to pop out one brat after another. It doesn't care if you're getting married because you think you have to be married to fuck like bunnies. It doesn't care if you're getting married because you think it will delight Jesus Christ. It doesn't care if you're getting married because you want to hide the fact you're a homosexual. None of that is the government's business, anyway.
Gays deserve to get married just like the rest of us. Get the fuck over it.
No one can legally stop gay people from marrying as long as their genitals are different. Christians only care about sex, not love, so if you have opposing genitals Bob's your uncle.

If t makes you feel any better, things like this are clearly becoming bigger and bigger wastes of time and money.
"Because marriage is built on love and sacrifice and friendship and...wait, you mean fags are capable of those things, too? Are you sure?
"Okay, new plan. Marriage is built on producing giant piles of babies."

Ancient and organic origins my ass. If that were the case we should define marriage as one man and as many women as he can support.

I used to be against gay marriage. That is, I used to think it was mostly symbolic, and therefore not an appropriate priority for political action, with the ice caps melting and all.
What changed my mind? To a large extent it was stuff like this. You just can't hide the meanness and fear in childlike animation and warm, gentle female voice-over. They're digging themselves a hole, one cute homey desperate promo at a time.
"The Marriage Act doesn't DO anything to marriage and relationships because the love was already there!"
"So you obviously wouldn't mind us editing it then..."
"NO YOU CAN'T DO THAT BECAUSE UMMM....we have to celebrate marriage! Also, why aren't you having piles of babies?!"
What is marriage? Baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me....no more.
i believe in the traditional marriage that is only between a man and a woman, if and only if her father has provided me with the 2 camels, a donkey, and a square of his land that i deserve for claiming her as my property for as long as i choose.
... thats what they're talking about, right?

GAYS CAN NOW MAKE GIANT MAGICAL PILES OF BABIES WITH SCIENCE!
So, fuck you lady.
