I will never understand this psychotic argument.
How, exactly HOW, is gay marriage a threat to "marriage and family"???
If someone is gay, they're not going to have a productive marriage with YOU, they just aren't. It doesn't threaten YOUR marriage in any way whatsoever
if two other people, that you are not married to, get married. It doesn't threaten your marriage if the guy down the road marries his wife, how would
it affect your marriage if he married his husband??
The biggest threat to marriage and family is divorce, that's it, DIVORCE. If you want to really protect the "sanctity of marriage" and the family,
outlaw divorce. Make it illegal. Force these people that run off to Vegas to actually stay married and provide for one another, you know.... like they
used to do. That's the one thing you could do to protect marriage.
Two gay people getting married has ZERO effect on heterosexual marriage, ZERO. Many would argue that the only people who raise such a fuss over gay
marriage are actually gay themselves and throw such a big fit to make people think they aren't. I honestly can't think of any other reason that anyone
would be so adamant about it. If you are heterosexual and married, what two other men or two other women do has absolutely no bearing on your marriage
in any way whatsoever. It's not possible.
Don't want the government to allow homosexual marriage? Fine, let the government do away with ALL marriage, leave it up to the church and church alone
without any rights or priveledges offered to the couple who is wed. That would take care of the whole thing. The only reason the homosexual community
wants gay marriage to be legal is so they get the same rights and benefits that heterosexual couples do. That's the ONLY reason. Either give them the
same perks or do away with the perks for everybody and there won't be a problem any more. If you're going to claim it's a religious institution, then
keep it a religious institution, take away the government benefits, take away divorce and have people honor their vows instead of having record
divorce rates that keep climbing every year.
...but don't forget, there are churches that marry gay couples too. It's a battle you cannot and will not win.
