I really don't care what people rub their junk up against...it's their junk, not mine. I don't mind who raises a child...a same sex home can
provide stability and love just as easily as a hetero home can.
I have no problem with two people having the same government rights as anyone else can have...I DO have a problem with the semantics though.
Call it civil union, call it joining, call it superglued, just don't call it marriage. Why am I so hung up on a word you ask? My fear is based on my
observations of the radical homosexual agenda and our litigious society (Born and raised in the Bay Area).
I predict that if and when a blanket law is in place that forces all states to recognize same-sex marriage the radicals in the movement will
not be satisfied, and turn their attention to the next level of perceived discrimination: The churches.
The next obvious step to forced acceptance would be to begin suing churches that refused to wed gay couples. The first targets would be the large
organized religions...Catholicism, Mormonism, Judaeism, etc. After the big ones fall, the little (poorer) churches would cave.
This step would lead to one of two futures: Churches being forced to compromise values and teachings in order to comply, thereby disenfranchising
their congregations, OR churches no longer providing marriage services to anyone, thereby taking away from many a sacred and important ritual that
they hold dear.
Marriage to many religious folks isn't just vows and love and benefits...To those, marriage is a sacred contract with God and spouse, something that
cannot truly be done by Rev. Joe Feelgood down at the lake.
Undermining faith-based marriage and disenfranchising religious communities would certainly be the proverbial straw that fractures conventional
religion in America. I know that many on ATS wouldn't mind that scenario, but have you thought about how all that down home religion helps you out?
The lady at the DMV, who went the extra mile to get your problem solved...Or the couple across the street that watches out for your kids when they
play out front? What about that guy who pulled over and stopped when your car was broke down in the rain? Many people learn to serve others through
That is why I am against same-sex marriage.
