  1. You know society has reached a new low when even the children are wiser than the adults that were supposed to run the society. Even the basic universal rule for the harmony and good in society, the Golden Rule – “One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself” – that most adults, politicians and authorities in general nowadays fail miserably to understand this kid already knows – “you shouldn’t judge other peoples lives because if you was gay [sic] you wouldn’t want people talking about you”.

  2. (cont.) And, the hell, even if the opinion of the skeptics was right and he was just copying the viewpoints of his parents or of someone else’s viewpoints he is still just copying someone else – he could have chosen to copy the example of a bigoted hateful person, but instead he showed intelligence and wisdom and chose to copy the viewpoint that preaches love, tolerance and compassion.

    As they say the children are really the future. Congratulations kid, enlightened children like you prove that at least the world is not so doomed as I thought so and this chaotic world still has some hope.

    All of these ‘arguments’ can also be used in favour of consanguinious marriage (between relatives) and polyamorous marriage.

    Good job kid, but nothing new here

    1. I concur. Good job kid. I agree the arguments have been made clearly before. The “slippery slope” argument has also been made before….. frequently mentioning animals (although i note you didnt, thanks). However, the kid wasn’t arguing for marriage between relatives. Maybe we’ll get a four year old to set that one out for you.

    2. “…in favour of consanguinious marriage (between relatives) and polyamorous marriage.”

      Too bad for you and you poor “argument”, LGBT people have no desire to do it, it’s fundamentalist Christians like the Mormon Fundamentalists that already do both. Nice try.
