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[2]: @Thom - Core freedom???

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.

Without law, there is chaos. It is about choices(to gay or not), but you cannot abuse the freedom because you choose to be a homo and want to have a marriage of the same sex.

Ask yourself, what IS marriage anyways? Isn't it an event where people proclaim their affection to each others 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?

Yes we do have that rights, but marriage can only be done between a man and a woman. Do that with same sex marriages, and we have a corrupt society. Most STDs comes from these abuses.

Yes, I know, western people are liberated and consider my argument to be so conservative and obsolete and BS, but in the end, we will see which of our societies will flourish. A society where everything was permitted for the sake of _freedom_ and a society where it upholds the integrity of the family including marriage.

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.

That is why we have laws. You cannot exercise your freedom for the sake of freedom but in respect to what the law permits in a given society. Not to limit the freedom of man but to save man from corruption. Religious racism holds only to those people who try to get rid of religious views.
