Marriage is So Gay

I have never heard a single good argument against gay marriage.

I have no idea why what two consenting adults choose to do behind closed doors concerns people so much.

In a nation with a supposed separation of church and state, the laws of marriage must be viewed from a legal standpoint, not a religious one. So "it's against God" doesn't count as an argument (there are no laws against atheists, pagans, or even Satanists marrying).
If churches do not want any of these groups marrying in their buildings- that’s one thing- but in a free country, the government should not be able to make it illegal.

Remember, it was once illegal for an interracial couple to marry, which, by today’s standards is wrong. Why then are we repeating history with homosexual marriage?

People say marriage "is for procreation/ the cornerstone of family," but people who are infertile are allowed to marry, as are people who just don't want children, have taken permanent birth control methods, or are past childbearing age.

People can legally marry for power, position, money, security, safety, lust, benefits, pension, etc. Arranged marriages, and drunken Vegas weddings are legal, but gay people marrying for love is not.

I believe that one day generations will look back at us and think why was it even ever a debate?

As an addendum about the “God hates gays” discussion- the same bible being quoted also condones incest (Lot), and a “good and just man” offering his virgin daughter up to an angry drunken mob to rape (Judges). So, are the same people using the bible as an argument that homosexuality is “against god” stating that incest, molestation, and child prostitution is “god’s way”?
Also, if one believes in a traditional god, they must also believe that god is the creator of all things (including Adam, Eve, AND Steve). How can believers be so arrogant as to pick and choose what their god did or did not create?


  1. I detest homophobia with a passion and think that gay marriage is appropriate and inevitable. I readily admit that Mr and Mr Smith will take some getting used to, but I don't understand those who would ban it.

    What are they afraid of?

    To that end, I have a huge dislike for polygamy--HUGE HUGE HUGE--but I don't necessarily think that it should be banned. Is it really any of my business how others choose to live? Hell no. If a polygamist's employer wants to raise issues about dependents, that's one thing, but it's not my moral call.

  2. I agree. Although, I would add that if polygamy were to be made legal, ALL husbands/ wives involved should be listed/ required to sign to marriage license to ensure they all know what's going on.

  3. I admit it. I watched that "Sister Wives" show on TLC. It should be called "Four Dumb Broads and a Jackass."

    All anyone has to do is look at that guy's car and they'll understand what his deal his.
