Or chances are they're old and have different values, and it's not worth starting an argument about.

My grandparents would have no problem whatsoever if I were gay, or if I married a black woman. I would never be afraid to tell them that. I guess that makes it A-OK.

Interracial* couples in the last decade? In what backwater area have you been living in the past 40+ years? My Tex/Mex Injun with a touch of European self disproves the 'decade' comment by at least an extra few decades.
(*Proper term is "inter-ethnic" because we are all one race, the human race. Racial terms were an artificial societal invention)
And if you don't want to tell your grandparents something, chances are they won't like it, not that you are doing something wrong.

"If you are afraid to tell your grandparents how you live your life, chances are, they're a couple of redneck bigots."
3/27/2008 11:21:37 PM
So you're equating interracial marriage with beastiality?
Sick, racist fuck!

@Beccs: Well, I can be an animal at times. *smirk*

You want Teflon with that slope?

Did anyone click on the link?
This guy is fucking ugly.
3/27/2008 11:33:06 PM
If you really find beastiality as the next logical step here, then your logic is more than a little flawed. And if your grandparents are too racist of homophobic to understand the choices that you are making, their opinions aren't really worth much anyway.

Good God... like a bolt from the blue, the answer just came to me.
Fundies are always going on and on and on about how any kind of social progress will inevitably lead to legalised bestiality, like it's the most terrible thing they can imagine. What if there was a 'legalise bestiality' movement? The fundies would blow their top, throw all their energy behind opposing it, and when asked about gay rights or the teaching of evolution, would say; "Are you still going on about that? The new duty for Christians is to stop these chicken-humpers getting their way!"
If we can get the fundies to prioritize decoy movements, they won't waste their time with lesser abominations like improving society.

I wouldn't be afraid to tell my grandparents about marrying a non-white man or woman, or even that I had sex with a dog, they could handle that. They would beat my ass, however, if I married an idiot.
3/27/2008 11:40:14 PM
What sort of logic do you use?
3/27/2008 11:42:55 PM
This is so true, if you feel shame for what you are doing, and it is soley your shame, then you have something to ask yourself about your lifestyle, but not if you only feel bad about what others might think of you for your lifestyle.
I make my non-religious views very plain to my mormon family, and they have no problem with it as long as I'm honest with myself.

I find it ironic that this quote has found it's way onto a "fundy" website, being that I am not even close to a religious fundamentalist. I also find it ironic that the person who put this quote on here is too afraid to let me know who it is, but instead goes through the trouble to create an entirely new facebook under an ex-girlfriend's name to send me the link. It sounds to me like another typical liberal puss. And for those of you who disagree with me, France would love to have you. This country was founded on certain moral standards, and I don't feel that I should have to compromise those morals for you people.
3/27/2008 11:45:57 PM
What if one set of your grandparents happen to be an interacial [sic] couple?
Racist asshole. People are people, no matter what part of the world their ancestors came from. Your own stupid fucking bible implies that everyone's ancestor is Adam & Eve.
3/27/2008 11:48:21 PM
What IS it with fundies and bestiality? They seem to mention it every chance they get.
Grandparents' approval is NOT the litmus test for behaving properly. Grandparents can do dumb things and be unreasonably intolerant, too. My grandmother drove drunk and hated the Irish. Should we outlaw English American / Irish American marriages based on her opinion?
This country was founded on the idea of freedom, and I don't feel that I should have to compromise MY morals to please YOU. My choice in whom I choose to marry isn't hurting you, is it?
And if you disagree with me, Iraq would love to have you.
BTW: There are more types of fundies than religious ones.
3/27/2008 11:48:52 PM
@Nathan: Then next time, think before you type, or open your mouth.
The US was not founded 'certain moral standards'. Inalienable rights applies to everyone, not just you and who you feel can join the country club.
And as an friendly FYI, FSTDT isn't a fundie site. It's a "You gotta be kidding, he/she can't be THAT stupid and ignorant" site. And in a way you are right. Your statement doesn't belong here. It belongs in "Racists say the darnedest things!"
3/27/2008 11:49:30 PM
"Back in mah old days we didns't have dem interracial, or same-sex marriage at all! In fact, we didn't have any marriage! You woke up, ate your mornin' gravel and go throwing shit for a living!"
EDIT: @Nathan: Wow, someone finally noticed their quote was posted on FSTDT! I would love to see more people come and see the comments for their stupidity - so we can throw some pearls before pigs. Otherwise, we're just throwing our efforts into nothingess...

Grand Archblasphemer of York
Always with the bestiality...Christians are almost as obsessed with that as they are with homosexuality (but are surprisingly silent in comparison on the issue of pedophilia, but hey...can't disagree with everything, right?).
Anywho, let me just put this out there:
Interracial couples =/= bestiality
Gay couples =/= man on beast action
Both gay and interracial couples involve love between two human beings, who are consenting adults, doing things that harm no-one, is no-one's business, and that is it! If you are afraid to tell your grandparents about that love, it is probably because those grandparents have an archaic, bigotted mindset similar to your own, rather than the love being inherently wrong. But, you can continue to live in five decades in the past if it makes you happy.

I'm not sure you people are very intelligent considering you sit on the computer and make fun of people all day. If you have something important to say, write a blog.
3/27/2008 11:56:31 PM
"This country was founded on certain moral standards..."
People used to own slaves and women used to have no rights.
You'd probably like those "certain moral standards", though, right?
3/27/2008 11:56:37 PM
Bestiality is never the next logical step for anything, ever.
Yet another person who has never heard of consenting adults and thinks that everything people do is a personal affront to himself.
3/27/2008 11:57:51 PM
@Nathan yet again:
I do have a blog. You have my permission to try to find it.
And if you are going to say something stupid, you should expect to be 'picked on'. Especially by me, the Tex/Mex Injun with a touch of European who is married to an Asian man.
3/27/2008 11:58:16 PM
Actually, slavery was abolished, and hopefully gay marriage will be too.
3/27/2008 11:59:35 PM
"Actually, slavery was abolished..."
No shit. That was the point.
