I found this party while browsing through the DDO options for party affiliation and I (being a hardcore conservative) found it to be delightful.

Here's their platform (it's long):

http://www.americafirstparty.org...

I really like it. I might actually register under them.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!

"The America First Party strongly supports the traditional family as ordained by God and built upon the marital union of one man and one woman. The institution of marriage is a sacred value upon which the traditional family is based. Therefore, we believe there should be a constitutional amendment to protect marriage as being a union between one man and one woman only."
Approved

I love how atheists have to pay into a system that you want to use to support an explicitly Christian sentiment. State-sponsored religion anyone?

Really? Where am I saying that marriage is religious in anyway at all? The History and Origins of marriage can be found in ancient China, ancient Israel, ancient Greece and ancient Rome and has always been between a man and a woman.

This isn't religious. This is tradition. It's a definition.

Marriage isn't a solely Christian belief or atheists wouldn't be able to marry either.

He was quoting the platform. Also, about tradition and definition, do you feel like society has to progress, or are you comfortable where the world is now?

To me it's not progress. I am firmly 100% anti-homosexual and will remain so.

I will support parties who share my sentiment.

I did? What were you referring to? The fact that they cite God as the foundation for the traditional family? I'm saying that it's tradition that's the foundation for the traditional family.

A mixture of belief in natural purpose and moral beliefs derived from my religion.

I didn't realize natural bodily purposes implied within themselves moral oughts. Please enlighten me. On the religion part, why force your religious views (which I highly doubt are that firmly justified anyways) on everyone else?

Me, an individual, being anti-gay doesn't mean I'm forcing Christianity on the nation. That sounds silly.

The definition of marriage is not religious based.

My dislike of homosexuality partially is.

Why? Are you jealous that we're so much better looking than you?

A mixture of belief in natural purpose and moral beliefs derived from my religion.

I didn't realize natural bodily purposes implied within themselves moral oughts. Please enlighten me. On the religion part, why force your religious views (which I highly doubt are that firmly justified anyways) on everyone else?

Me, an individual, being anti-gay doesn't mean I'm forcing Christianity on the nation. That sounds silly.

But you just said it was from your religion. :P

CLARIFICATION:

The definition of marriage isn't solely religious based.

My dislike of homosexuality is partially based in religion but not solely.

My views are not being forced on the nation. Why should your pro-gay views be forced upon me? They violate my religion therefore you are forcing your non-religion onto me. The argument can be taken either way.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16

To me it's not progress. I am firmly 100% anti-homosexual and will remain so.

What?

What?

You said it wasn't religious, then you said that its because of your religion.

The definition of marriage is not religious based.

My dislike of homosexuality partially is.

But definitions can be changed. Your dislike of homosexuality is stopping it.

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

I don't believe they should be.

I figured as much.

My views are not being forced on the nation. Why should your pro-gay views be forced upon me? They violate my religion therefore you are forcing your non-religion onto me. The argument can be taken either way.

No it doesn't because it doesn't restrict you in the slightest bit.
