If humans were meant to marry their same sex, there would be a way for them to reproduce without using the other sex. If gay people are married, it is impossible for them to actually create children. Soon, the overall population would decrease, making America less influential and prosperous. Also, it is psychologically proven that a child needs both a mother and a father to be psychologically unscathed. Also, it's not about the bible, it's about the lives of both gay couples and children of future generations. Many researchers have proven that gay couples have higher risk of physical and mental diseases.

Homosexuality will not affect your daily life in any way. We live in a free country. If a person has the freedom of religion and speech, among other rights, why can't they have the freedom to marry who they choose? Legalizing same-sex marriage communicates to millions of people across the country that gay relationships are of equal value to straight relationships, thereby helping to reduce intergroup prejudice and supporting cultural diversity. The number of child adoptions should increase since gay couples cannot pro-create and most childres will have a place they can call home.

The gay lifestyle is not something to be encouraged, as a lot of research shows it leads to a much lower life expectancy, psychological disorders, and other problems. Also It confuses children about gender roles and expectations of society. They will think its something acceptable and follow in there foot steps and slowly the United States population will go down.

I accept.

Just because a couple doesn't have the right parts to reproduce does not mean that it is not right. There is something called adoption for a reason. Without having gay couples, who would adopt all the orphans in the orphanages? Because let's be honest, the majority of the people who adopt and people who can't make their own offspring. Could you elaborate if you are for or against homosexuality, because in one of your statements it sounds like you're for it. Are you for homosexuality just against same sex marriage or what?

I think an individual has the right to marry who they love, whether they are straight or gay. Just because someone prefers their own gender over the opposite sex does not make wrong. If gay marriage is illegal, than straight marriage should be illegal too. Marriage is simply two people who are in love being united together by law. That does not mean just a man and a woman.

Shouldn't people be able to do what makes them happy without the law saying that it's not right? I wouldn't want to live my life knowing that me and my significant other could never get married.
