Personally, I have no problem with gay people wanting a legal bond. But forget about the church. They think homosexuality is a sin and if you're
looking to get that changed, you're fighting a losing battle. Anyway, do you really want to belong to a religion that condemns you but says it's okay
if the priest rapes a boy?
To get back on the subject of this thread...Give a Reason Why.
I'm by far no expert and this is very speculative but the only reason I can see is the health insurance industry does want gays getting legally
The industry is hurting as it is. The company I work for had a hard time even getting insurance for their workers because the insurer LOST money with
us last year! Not to mention the out of pocket costs for us!
I know the first argument will be how will this affect health insurance?
Well, again...I'm no expert, but if 2% of the people in a company of 1000 are gay and let's say half of them get married. That's 10 people added to
the plan. If half are men and just one of them contracts HIV, that's about a $300,000 hit for the insurance company. Just speculating on their
The bigger problem I know will happen is people of the same sex getting married just to get benefits! Trust me, this country is getting the blood
sucked right out of it by immigrants finding ways to take advantage of the system as it is. If you don't believe Pedro will marry Hilario for a
pay-off so he can get premium medical care for his child who was diagnosed with cancer, you are mistaken. My Wife is a legal immigrant from South
America and tells me about some of the scams her co-workers are involved in. These people probably live better than most on these forums!
