Top 12 Reasons Why Homosexuals Shouldn't Be Allowed to Marry

found on another board...
-------------------
1. Homosexuality is not natural, much like eyeglasses, polyester, and birth control.

2. Heterosexual marriages are valid becasue they produce children. Infertile couples and old people can't legally get married because the world needs more children.

3. Obviously, gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

4. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if Gay marriage is allowed, since Britney Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage was meaningful.

5. Heterosexual marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are property, blacks can't marry whites, and divorce is illegal.

6. Gay marriage should be decided by people, not the courts, because the majority-elected legislatures, not courts, have historically protected the rights of the minorities.

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

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

9. 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.

10. Children can never suceed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why single parents are forbidden to raise children.

11. 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 things like cars or longer lifespans.

12. Civil unions, providing most of the same benefits as marriage with a different name are better, because a "seperate but equal" institution is always constitutional. Seperate schools for African-Americans worked just as well as seperate marriages for gays and lesbians will.

That must have been on the GOP website. There's no way anybody can take these ones seriously, they're so completely stereotypical and contrary to fact.

I'm with you on that....I have a friend who's gay and this list is full of crap....

"Obviously, gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children"

oh then where are coming the ones that are already gay? I'm not gay but I hate it when I see stupid crap like this.

Umm it's sarcasm, it was posted on the other board by a gay man.

It's supposed to be funny and illustrate how idiodic the arguments of the anti gay marriage are.

FWIW I'm actually not in favor of "legalizing" gay marriage as marriage is a fundamentally religious institution. I think that the entire concept of civil marriage should be abolished.

Last I checked you didn't need a piece of paper from the state before you could have a baptism or Bar Mitzvah. The only reason marriage is different is because it's been integrated into our society. This is a problem that we can fix like we fixed slavery and segregation.

Once the government gets its nose out of the business of marriage anyone is free to marry whoever they want, it's strictly between them and their god (or them and themselves in the case of an Athiest living a judeo-christian lifestyle)

It took a little bit for me to read through the rhetoric in your post raitchison. Thanks for your input.

The term "marriage" to the government, is just that, a term. Get past the fact that a civil and religious marriage involve the union of two people and there are no similarities.

I've kept my mouth shut on the "gay" topics up until now, but as a gay man I can honestly laugh at the reasons "to be against gay marriage" listed above.

LOL. Ish koo... I'm probably one of the least "stereotypical" gay guys you'll ever encounter. Other than the sexual orientation, I'm practically straight, or so my friends say.
