2. Gay marriage has no point: Marriage isn't just an expression of love and love can be shared in many other ways. The purpose of marriage itself is to produce and raise children to adulthood, whereas same-sex partners being parents will significantly alter the child's life: Children without their mothers won't have the emotional security and unique advice without their mother. Girls without their father are more prone to indulge themselves in sexual activity at a younger age, and boys without their father are unable to receive advice that a father may provide in matters such as their "road to manhood."
3. Gay marriage could be harmful to the rest of society: More gay marriage = More of society becoming openly and proudly gay, which could thus accelerate the assimilation of gays into mainstream culture. Gay marriage could very well drastically change western civilization.
4. Gay marriage usefulness: From a legal standpoint, marriage is a civil right that prohibits any participants that are NOT a heterosexual couple. From a personal standpoint, I believe marriage is a privilege and should not be used by anyone who can't use the privilege PRODUCTIVELY for the good of society. Marriage is a tool used to procreate, for religion, and for love ; gays cannot procreate, being gay itself violates most religions, and love can be expressed in other ways.
" The right wing conservatives think it's a decision
And you can be cured with some treatment and religion
Man-made rewiring of a predisposition
Playing God, aw nah here we go
America the brave still fears what we don't know
And God loves all his children, is somehow forgotten
But we paraphrase a book written thirty-five-hundred years ago"
To be gay is not a choice and people won't/can't just decide that they like the same sex. It's just how it is. And when two people are in love, they should have the right to be married. No matter what 'society' says.
"Why not? A MARRIAGE DOES NOT AFFECT ANYBODY IN THE SOCIETY. NOT YOU OR ME. Or anybody else in fact."
Oh really? Marriages cost money: Claiming a tax exemption for a spouse, receiving social security payments from a deceased spouse, and coverage by a spouse’s health insurance policy. The estimated cost for legalising gay marriage between 2010 and 2019 is 898 million dollars (not counting Social Security, inheritance, ect...) I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to pay taxes for something I do not believe in. Plus, allowing gay marriage could evolve into allowing many other untraditional marriages such as polygamous, incestuous, and even bestial. To sum this arguement up: Gay marriage is pointless and expensive.
