Gay marriage should not be stay legalized in America. Marriage is to make a family, not for pleasure, and homosexuality is unnatural and immoral.
The most obvious reason is that marriage is for procreation, and gay couples obviously cannot reproduce. Children also need both a father and mother. With girls who are raised without a father, according to "Not Yet Equal: The Health of Lesbian, Gay, & Bisexual Youth", teen pregnancy rates are nearly quadrupled, and children raised without a mother do not have the emotional support and security mothers provide. An 1859 Supreme Court ruling stated, "the first purpose of matrimony, by the laws of nature and society, is procreation." Court papers in 2014 also stated, "the State regulates marriage for the primary purpose of channeling potentially procreative sexual relationships into enduring unions for the sake of joining children to both their mother and their father... Same-sex couples can never provide a child with both her biological mother and her biological father." Children with heterosexual parents are proven to do better in life and the argument for children is all for banning gay marriage.
Similar to marriage being for procreation, homosexuality is completely unnatural and immoral. The only reason someone would be gay is for their own pleasure. Like the previous paragraph, that is not what marriage is for. Being gay is unnatural because gay is a choice, and we are all naturally born straight.

Hmm...

First off, it isn't up to you to decide what marriage is for. That is the choice of the couple to decide. Next, it is the choice of the couple to decide if they want to have children. Why should the government force people to have kids? As for your problems about kids and gay parents, shouldn't we give everybody a fair shot? Also, gay parents are actually better at raising kids then straight kids. [1]

Next, how is homosexuality unnatural? It happens all the time in nature, so how is it unnatural?

Now on to my argument.

First off, we all have equal rights. To give some the right to marry but not others is against our laws, morals, and constitution. We can not do that. Now I believe in a smaller government, so why should the government tell 2 consenting adults if they can not marry? I think it is pretty simple, treat each other equally.
