01) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

03) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all like many of the principles on which this great country was founded; women are still property, blacks still can’t marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

05) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of marriages like Britney Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

06) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn’t be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren’t full yet, and the world needs more children.

07) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

08) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That’s why we have only one religion in America.

09) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That’s why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven’t adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

That was good! I totally agree with all of these points. You'll be getting a lot of religious folk clicking on this thread, they might just walk away with more of an open mind. Fantastic.

this is funny in the most serious way. There is a deficit of functional family units, and this is not accident; Destroy the community..destroy the family...and destroy the individual.

I am sure he is serious -- he is pointing out the idiocy of people who believe that there is something fundamentally immoral about preventing people from getting married. I bet if you reread this you will see your self in many of those points and perhaps understand why people might be laughing at you. It is a teaching moment for those who refuse to learn.

By the way your post made my spell checker assplode.

I'm curious about the word functional here. It's an adjective used to denote operational within a larger system. If by this you mean conforming to an overarching stereotypical mould to become a part of a system that denigrates individuality and supports the subjugation of the majority, them Viva le dysfunction!

Gay and lesbian Americans are fighting for the right to get married.

These 10 reasons are as old and stale and just as much of a joke as the idea of Gay Marriage being the real agenda behind the Gay Marriage debate. I see this posted all over the Internet so its nothing new or original. At least post some original thoughts on the issue or post it in an existing thread.

Posting this unoriginal diatribe as a new thread is a waste of space.

There is a hidden agenda beyond the inequality in rights?

Personally, I think they should seperate a Civil Union from Marriage. Combining these two is what is causing this entire issue in the first place.

Civil union - A legal contract between consenting adults that give you the privaleges of what we call marriage today.
Marriage - a religious ceremony.

By seperating the two, we eliminate the need to controversy of inequal rights by having a civil contract instead of a church that does not wish to perform "gay marriages", yet still give two adults, who care for each other, the right to visit in a hospital, survivior benefits, etc

Currently, you need to get a marriage license before you have a church wedding. The choice of naming both actions the same name is what is causing the issue.

So by saying that gay people cannot legally be joined in a religious ceremony in a church is a way of treating people with equality? Does anyone have a right to refuse to officiate a wedding based upon personal belief?

What's causing the issue is people who have a right refusing to allow people who are "different" to have the same right.

If they attend a church that allows gay marriages, that is fine. However, by raising a ruckus because a particular church doesn't perform gay marriages, that is imposing on other peoples beliefs. There is a balance between the two.

Gay people deserve the exact same legal rights that others receive. This would all be handled under the civil union portion of what I suggested. The religious ceremony would be dictated by the religion they belong to. If the church doesn't allow it, than they should be finding another church if they want the religious element added.

Edit: Forgot to add commentary on the link you added. That judge did not perform his legal duties. In my opinion, he should have been disbarred for having obvious bias when it comes to legal decisions. He is supposed to place his own feelings aside when deciding what is right - under the law.
