Seriously, is there any logical argument against gay marriage?

I've seen the arguments put forth by anti-gay advocates, but they're always something stupid like "Well why don't you just legalize man-animal or man-boy marriages then" or "The Bible Says Homosexality Is An Abomination", or "It will destroy Family Values", and so on. So my question here to ATS is, are there any decent points on the other side that have been overlooked due to being buried underneath the rampant idiocy by the Far-Right/Religious Right/Whatever you want to call them? And if that's not the case, then why hasn't this gay marriage issue ended already? This is the one issue could end so easily, even moreso than DADT, and that got repealed.

One reason, its wrong.
So far this is the most logical argument.

I have debated this for decades, and have yet to hear one logical argument against gay marriage.

I have also never gotten an answer to, How does two gays being married weaken the institute of marriage, especially in light of a fifty percent divorce rate,

and,
How does two gays marrying directly effect you personally.

There will be no logical answers in this thread either, those answers do not exist.

I never understood marriage, gay or otherwise. If you love someone, love them, why involve the government?

If your building something, you use nuts and bolts ?
If you try to build something with bolts and bolts, or nuts and nuts, everything falls apart !
A bit like SOCIETY really ?

I have nothing against gay marriage and do agree that there is argument against such a thing imo however these is one thing I am against and that is gay adoption.

That is not a reason. Provide us WHY it is wrong, then you have a reason.

What are you talking about? The topic is to provide a logical reason against gay marriage. You forgot logic in your reply. And gay marriage was forgotten too.

One reason....well, man and man cannot produce a man....Is that reason enough? I believe the future generations think so....

Yes, there sure is. "Marriage" is a ritual derived from Christian origins between a man and a women. There is no authority derived from the state other than what that religion allows the state to perform in it's stead.

Being that Christian religion negates same sex orientation so does it negate same sex marriage. If gay people want to hook up on the same level legally they are going to have to call it something else because marriage is not a federal government right to be given and thus, not within there authority to grant.

Face it, the religious act you seek is the same religion that casts you out. Seek something else because here, you have no way to win, logic is not on your side.

once you are blind you do not think it is wrong.

I believe it's wrong. Now don't crucify me for this, but I believe one of, if not the only purpose to life in general, is to reproduce.The continuity of species. In this conclusion, I feel it's simply selfish.

I've always considered marriage a religious institution that is also recognized legally, and I always felt you get married to start a family.

I've never seen a pregnant man or a woman with a penis, so gay marriage really doesn't make any sense in that regard to me.

Since you get married in the eyes of god, if the church frowns upon gay marriage, why would you even want it ?

the gov't should give same sex relationships a way to achieve the same legal status for health benefits etc etc, but if I was gay I wouldn't go anywhere near a church or want to be married in the traditional sense anyway

me and my partner would probably have a private commitment ceremony with friends and burn a bible

I wouldn't say there is an argument against it, I am just against it myself because of child, that is all although now I think about it, there is an argument about gay marriage/gay couples.

It isn't natural

My only real problem with gay marriage is that I think children should grow up with both a male and a female role model, preferably a mother and a father in a traditional family unit. Yes, you will be able to point to plenty of cases where kids would do better with a loving gay couple that wanted them instead of a hateful, incompetent, or otherwise dysfunctional straight couple, and I would not deny it. But on a mass level, I think when you start tinkering with the fundamental building-blocks of society (such as family structure) that have stood the test of time for at least ten thousand years, great caution at the very least is called for. There has been no wider debate on how social structure, etc. would be effected, only on the personal rights of gays to do this or that. To me that is a glaring omission.

That's my opinion, I'm not interested in arguing about this topic becuase nobody ever convinces anyone of anything, but I will state my opinion for the record so it is represented as one way of looking at the situation.
