Your Marriage Must Benefit the State

Rob Tisinai

April 7th, 2013

I hope this video will convince people once and for all that same-sex couple have no right to “marry,” because their unions do not satisfy a compelling State interest. And then we can stop this whole silly debate.

And when you’re finished, please, come and visit my organization’s web site.

Please, please, please.

I have to say, this whole pseudo-anti-gay-marriage thingy has been a bit boring.

It’s sad how many times these arguments have been presented to me, that same-sex marriages do not benefit the state and that the “pursuit of happiness” is in no way guaranteed to LGBTs.

Rob, Love the totalitarian “musik” in the background.

This is my favorite so far.

I have heard this argument before and of all the anti-gay arguments to me it’s the most bizarre. “Citizens only have rights when it benefits the state.” That’s the complete opposite of our Constitution. You’ve heard of Tenthers? I’m a Ninther. Read the Ninth Amendment. I have the right to do whatever I want unless a compelling argument can be made that I shouldn’t. My rights don’t come from the government. The government is limited by the people, not the other way around. The argument sounds literally like a communist one. How odd to hear such an argument from so-called conservatives.
