If a friend tells me that I should not be allowed to get married due to my sexuality or race or religion, it's justifiable that I slap him or her across the face if he or she doesn't listen to reason. amirite?

@ilikefurrywolves4815 did you slap him across the face?

I did. It felt good. My friend agreed, because she doesn't like him.

@mirandaamirite That's pretty fucking awesome. How did he react?

He said, "I'm done."
Then he texted me later saying that I was being intolerant of his religious beliefs. So I told him to go fuck himself and that we aren't friends.

"I was being intolerant of his religious beliefs" Jesus fucking Christ, I hate hearing that stupid line from people when you're discussing literally ANYTHING

Anyway, I think you slapped him because of the heat of the moment. You're angry right now but when you look back you'll probably wish you would've handed that a bit differently? Or maybe not? Who knows. In this world it's pretty much impossible to escape the stupidity and close-mindedness of people.

Honestly I have no regrets of doing it. He really is a terrible person, not just because he's against gay marriage. That was just the final straw.

"You shouldn't get married because you're gay."
"What? Why?"
"It goes against my religious beliefs."
"That's stupid. Who are you to say who should get married or not?"
"It goes against my religious beliefs."
"You're serious?"
"Yeah."
"Seriously?"
"Yeah! I mean you're the only gay person I know who's 'eh'!"
Slap

EDIT: By the way, by "eh" he meant that's the level of tolerance I was to him. As in he tolerated me that much.

Just about every single anti-gay "argument" I've ever heard is just one sentence repeated over and over. I find it annoying how the idiots saying that crap actually think they're making a point.

I'm still not sure you should have slapped him based on the post, but if he really is a horrible person then maybe he did deserve it. It's hard to know without being there and knowing the guy.

Fair play. People say violence isn't the answer but some people really need a good slap.

I can understand why you might have done it in the heat of the moment, if someone insulted me like that I might have done the same. But I don't think it was justifiable to hit him, because there was nothing to be gained from it. It's never really ok to try to punish someone for their views with physical violence, no matter how disgusting those views are.

I am catholic and do not necessarily agree with homosexuality. However, what you do or who you marry does not affect me, therefore I would agree with you. It is perfectly possible to disagree and still respect at the same time.

Very immature.
Someone saying that is completely different than someone actually killing or enslaving.
I have the right to think that blacks should be enslaved. (I obviously don't think that, it's just a point.)
If you resort to physical violence to handle a conversational dispute, you are obviously immature and incapable of debating.

Why would you be okay with violence and domestic disturbance but be no homo all on somebody? Fuckin grow the fuck up

Life isn't fair because we make it unfair, that's the thing. Everyone just accepts that life is unfair and well that's it oh well too bad. That's not the case.
We can change that fairness really easily if everyone just fucking listened to each other.

I'm not bitching about anything, to be clear.
But it's just the way it is, there's no answer to that. As a stupid example, because I can't think of another one on the spot, say you get paired up with someone you hate for some school project. Just little things like that, someone would be like 'omgggg why!' Because not everything's gonna work out perfectly for you all the time. You know? This is probably so unclear and not making my point, but that's all right.
I'm just trying to say that people have the right to feel the way they do. And a lot of comments here are saying stuff like, 'I hate when someone's only excuse for being against gay marriage because of religion.' That's a big factor in a lot of people's lives. And as much as people say it's not, America is a religious country. Why do you think every president and every coin and dollar we have say stuff like, "in God we trust," and "God bless America." And there's nothing wrong with that. Religion is a good thing. And not all religious people are 'closed-minded' as you seem to think. So you shouldn't be so quick to judge.

Why does everyone on this site say just Christianity? As if it's the only religion against gay marriage and abortion and all that. Because I'm pretty sure there are some religions that you'd be stoned for being gay.
But really, marriage isn't a secular thing. It's a religious sacrament. I was talking about it with my dad and he said that there are benefits to being married, such as tax deductions or something like that, so that's why it's such an important issue. But in all honesty, I feel that there shouldn't be any economic benefits to being married. It's a sacrament, not a secular thing. And, on this website especially, I know I'm gonna get shitted on for my opinion, so. I've accepted the fact that I'm so outnumbered.

Yes, we are allowed to vote on what we want, but we are not allowed to vote on the rights of another human being. I think that's part of the 14th Amendment? I'm not sure...

That's not how voting works in this country, majority rules the minority. The bicameral legislature makes it pretty fair to both majority and minority.

That is how voting works in this country.
Do you remember learning about how segregation ended? It wasn't by majority vote. Why? Because the majority would have voted to suppress the minority. That's the exact same reason we shouldn't vote on gay marriage.

@kristin Then how should we handle it? It seems like you have the perfect plan in mind.

Actually, I do.
Don't hold a vote. Let me marry my girlfriend and let all the other gay people marry their significant others too. That's what we did when people wanted to marry people of a different race than them. It worked then and it will work now.

@kristin But it's just something he believes. What's wrong with that?

No, no, no, no, no.

This isn't a matter of opinion, it's a matter of human rights. Not allowing gay people to get married is not religious expression, it's religious OPPRESSION.

What!? Seriously? Adonis I love just about everything you say and do on this site but that's just unreasonable. You are saying 'Physical violence is the only resort when I have a difference of opinions with someone' outrageous. His views alone would have ended my friendship with him if I was in your shoes, but logically if he got on here and said 'if my friend tells me he should have the right to marry anyone regardless of my religion it's justifiable that I slap him across the face if he won't listen to reason.' he should get just as many upvotes as you. The posts homosexual debate content is irrelevant, the debate is whether to slap someone for disagreeing with you, and if you agree with this post you are saying that your 'friend' was just as much justified if he'd slapped you at the end of the conversation instead. I feel like you pulled on a heart string on Amirite with the gay rights basis because most people wouldnt 'YYA' a post that says 'I am justified slapping someone who disagrees with me, and who many would say is being irrational Amirite?' I am not appalled or surprised that in the tension of the moment you slapped him, I'm surprised how many think it was right to do.

There's a degree of disagreement to where it's reasonable.

It's stupid to slap someone for not liking your favorite band, but I think it's reasonable to slap someone for downright disbelieving in equality between races, sexuality, or sex. Because they're holding society back and being stupid, and deserve some sort of punishment for it.

It's really REALLY sad that people actually down voted that violence is never justified...what the hell has the world come to? No person has the right to harm another any anyway unless it is self-defense.

...oh and this is coming from a Muslim btw. Shame on all those hypocrites who say that what Muslims terrorists are doing is bad when they themselves condone inflicting physical harm upon another in different situation. Utter bullshit.

I'm not trying to make a direct comparison between those two acts, I'm just saying that in one situation people say violence is bad, yet in another they say it's totally okay and justified. I think it's hypocritical and that in general, no one had the right to make the decision to harm another human being. (unless it's self-defense).

Sorry for calling you a dumbass, that was really uncalled for. I just got pissed off at your sarcasm and that you were misinterpreting my point.
