Internet & Networking It's official now. The signs had been there for a while now. While the west bangs on about the importance of freedom and democracy, they don't actually want anyone to have too much of it. The US, France, and the UK have jointly pretty much declared war on freedom on the web.

RE: @Thom - Core freedom???

You can't claim same sex marriage as "core" as it will ultimately destroy a society where people only chooses their marriage partner of the same sex

I'm sorry, but.. your argument is BS: even if something is a core freedom it doesn't mean everyone chooses to utilize that said freedom. For example everyone has the freedom to be straight, yet not everyone is that. Similarly, everyone has the right and freedom to be gay, yet still not everyone is that.

You include same-sex marriage a core of human freedom? That is highly subjective and often based on the background of who shouted it.

Ask yourself, what IS marriage anyways? Isn't it an event where people proclaim their affection to eachothers and their wish to try to uphold that affection and everything it entails until the end of their lives? Thus, doesn't EVERYONE have the right to proclaim their affection toward another person, to promise to care for and look after them?

Either you claim that no, people do NOT have the right to publicly reveal their feelings to others and to care for them unless they fit your definition of what human beings should be, or that everyone has that right.

thus defeating the very core of human freedom = procreation.

Freedom is exactly that: a choice to do or not to do. Trying to limit marriage to only heterosexual couples that want to have children is not freedom for anyone, it's religious racism.
