    Homosexuality is not natural, much like eyeglasses, polyester, and birth control are not natural.
    Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children. Infertile couples and old people cannot get legally married because the world needs more children.
    Obviously gay parents will raise gay children because straight parents only raise straight children.
    Straight marriage will be less meaningful, since Britney Spears's 55-hour just-for-fun marriage was meaningful.
    Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and it hasn't changed at all: women are property, Blacks can't marry Whites, and divorce is illegal.
    Gay marriage should be decided by the people, not the courts, because the majority-elected legislatures, not courts, have historically protected the rights of minorities.
    Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are always imposed on the entire country. That's why we only have one religion in America.
    Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people makes you tall.
    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 license.
    Children can never succeed without both male and female role models at home. That's why single parents are forbidden to raise children.
    Gay marriage will change the foundation of society. Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and we could never adapt to new social norms because we haven't adapted to cars or longer lifespans.
    Civil unions, providing most of the same benefits as marriage with a different name are better, because a "separate but equal" institution is always constitutional. Separate schools for African-Americans worked just as well as separate marriages will for gays & lesbians."

    Excellent for perspective. I wonder who put that all down, seems like it took some serious thought. Thanks

    Unfortunately there are people out there who have beliefs such as these.

    this is funny but sad, as it is a point by point rebuttal of what most anti-gay marriage people use as "logic"

    Sadly, there are.

    It pains me how many unthinking people there are who credulously parrot the right wing talking points on gay issues. It's as if "James Dobson said it, I believe it, that settles it."

    But when people say homosexuality is unnatural, my answer to that is that being clean shaven is unnatural. Obviously god wants you to have a beard, but you insist on going against nature and shaving it off every day.

    When they say marriage has always been between one man and one woman, I point out the glaring Biblical account of Solomon and his 700 wives. The original 700 Club.

    Global, I like your thoughts about beards. But I need some advice. I have worn a beard for 30 years, but will God forgive me because, THEY made me shave when I have open heart surgery. I really need the points for this one, as I don't do well on the Leviticus test: I really like shrimp, clams, pork and men.icon_smile.gif
