11 Arguments Against Same Sex Marriage

I found this article a few days ago, and found it to be extremely homophobic and wrong. So, I decided to post the article here with my comments. The argument titles will be bolded, and the article will be normal text. My comments will be in red. To read the full article, click here

1. The legalization of homosexual marriage will quickly destroy the traditional family.
We’ve already seen evidence from the Scandinavian countries that de-facto homosexual marriage destroys the real Mc Coy. These two entities cannot coexist because they represent opposite ends of the universe. A book could be written on the reasons for this collision between matter and antimatter, but I will cite three of them.

First off, this beginning introduction is purely retarded. The only thing ever discussed about homosexuality in Scandinavia was during the Viking Period when homosexual rape was to be a form of insult. Currently, Scandinavians don’t see anything really wrong with the “male giving,” however the “male receiving” is considered unmanly since that is supposed to be a woman’s role.

First, when the State sanctions homosexual relationships and gives them its blessing, the younger generation becomes confused about sexual identity and quickly loses its understanding of lifelong commitments, emotional bonding, sexual purity, the role of children in a family, and from a spiritual perspective, the sanctity of marriage. Marriage is reduced to something of a partnership that provides attractive benefits and sexual convenience, but cannot offer the intimacy described in Genesis. Cohabitation and short-term relationships are the inevitable result. Ask the Norwegians, the Swedes, and the people from the Netherlands. That is exactly what is happening there.

As homosexuality is now being largely debated about in the US, it is not certain whether or not the younger generation will really be effected by it. Most likely not since homosexuality has been around as long as heterosexuality and there are still heterosexual couples that outnumber homosexual couples. This gentleman clearly has the wrong idea about homosexuals as well. They do not want marriage simply to have benefits with a sexual convenience; they want the same right that is already given to them to be granted. While two homosexuals could not procreate, they still can share the same level as intimacy discussed about in the bible. Love is love. You don’t need to have sex to define true love. The stuff about the Norwegians, Swedes, and Netherlanders could not be found from any reliable source.

Second, the introduction of legalized gay marriages will lead inexorably to polygamy and other alternatives to one man/one woman unions. In Utah polygamist Tom Green, who claims five wives, is citing Lawrence v. Texas as the legal authority for his appeal. In January 2004, a Salt Lake City civil rights attorney filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of another couple wanting to engage in legal polygamy. Their justification? Lawrence v. Texas. The ACLU of Utah has actually suggested that the state will have to step up to prove that a polygamous relationship is detrimental to society? As opposed to the polygamists having to prove that plural marriage is not harmful to the culture. Do you see how the game is played? The responsibility to defend the family now rests on you and me to prove that polygamy is unhealthy. The ACLU went on to say that the nuclear family may not be necessarily the best model. Indeed, Justice Antonin Scalia warned of this likelihood in his statement for the minority in the Lawrence case. It took less than six months for His prediction to become a reality.

Why will gay marriage set the table for polygamy? Because there is no place to stop once that Rubicon has been crossed. Historically, the definition of marriage has rested on a foundation of tradition, legal precedent, theology and the overwhelming support of the people. After the introduction of marriage between homosexuals, however, it will be supported by nothing more substantial than the opinion of a single judge or by a black-robed panel of justices. After they have reached their dubious decisions, the family will consist of little more than someone’s interpretation of rights. Given that unstable legal climate, it is certain that some self-possessed judge, somewhere, will soon rule that three men or three women can marry. Or five men and two women. Or four and four. Who will be able to deny them that right? The guarantee is implied, we will be told, by the Constitution. Those who disagree will continue to be seen as hate-mongers and bigots. (Indeed, those charges are already being leveled against Christians who espouse biblical values!) How about group marriage, or marriage between cousins, or marriage between daddies and little girls? How about marriage between a man and his donkey? Anything allegedly linked to civil rights will be doable. The legal underpinnings for marriage will have been destroyed.

Polygamy is NOT homosexuality. Incest is NOT homosexuality. Bestiality is NOT homosexuality. Citing Tom Green as an example of polygamy is absolutely ridiculous. The man is a comedian, and is more likely than not- LYING. Homosexuals do NOT want to marry more than one partner. This idea that homosexuals have 300 or more partners a year is absolutely ridiculous. (This claim will be brought up later on) Homosexuals want to just marry their partner. The one that they love- not the ones that are gay with them. Having this right will not lead to polygamy. It will not lead to incest marriage. Besides- that is actually harmful. It will not lead to bestiality marriage- animals do not have legal binding, nor can they sign licenses.

The third reason marriage between homosexuals will destroy traditional marriage is that this is the ultimate goal of activists, and they will not stop until they achieve it. The history of the gay and lesbian movement has been that its adherents quickly move the goal line as soon as the previous one has been breached, revealing even more shocking and outrageous objectives. In the present instance, homosexual activists, heady with power and exhilaration, feel the political climate is right to tell us what they have wanted all along. This is the real deal: Most gays and lesbians do not want to marry each other. That would entangle them in all sorts of legal constraints. Who needs a lifetime commitment to one person? The intention here is to create an entirely different legal structure.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

With marriage as we know it gone, everyone would enjoy all the legal benefits of marriage (custody rights, tax-free inheritance, joint ownership of property, health care and spousal citizenship, and much more) without limiting the number of partners or their gender. Nor would couples be bound to each other in the eyes of the law. This is clearly where the movement is headed. If you doubt that this is the motive, read what is in the literature today. Activists have created a new word to replace the outmoded terms infidelity, adultery, cheating and promiscuity. The new concept is polyamorous. It means the same thing (literally ? many loves?) but with the agreement of the primary sexual partner. Why not? He or she is probably polyamorous, too.

1. Polyamory was created by Morning Glory Zell-Ravenheart. 2. This is not part of homosexuality.

We must all become soberly aware of a deeply disturbing reality: The homosexual agenda is not marriage for gays. It is marriage for no one. And despite what you read or see in the media, it is definitely not monogamous.

Despite what this moron says, homosexuals are normal people that want the rights already granted to them. They are NOT polygamists.

What will happen sociologically if marriage becomes anything or everything or nothing? The short answer is that the State will lose its compelling interest in marital relationships altogether. After marriage has been redefined, divorces will be obtained instantly, will not involve a court, and will take on the status of a driver’s license or a hunting permit. With the family out of the way, all rights and privileges of marriage will accrue to gay and lesbian partners without the legal entanglements and commitments heretofore associated with it.

No. Not at all. Homosexuals are after marriage, not out to destroy it. Divorces will not be on an increase. In fact, Massachusetts, the only state which allows Gay Marriage, is also the state with the least amount of divorces. After allowing gay marriage, guess what happened to this amount? It DECREASED.

These are just a few reasons why homosexual marriage is truly revolutionary. Legalizing it will change everything, especially for the institution of the family.

2. Children will suffer most.
The implications for children in a world of decaying families are profound. Because homosexuals are rarely monogamous, often having as many as three hundred or more partners in a lifetime. Some studies say it is typically more than one thousand. Children in those polyamorous situations are caught in a perpetual coming and going. It is devastating to kids, who by their nature are enormously conservative creatures. They like things to stay just the way they are, and they hate change. Some have been known to eat the same brand of peanut butter throughout childhood.

Not true. Homosexuals are like any other person. If a normal person has over 300 partners in a lifetime (or 1,000) then so do other people. I’ve also looked into homosexuals being polygamists, there is no correlation between them.

More than ten thousand studies have concluded that kids do best when they are raised by loving and committed mothers and fathers. They are less likely to be on illegal drugs, less likely to be retained in a grade, less likely to drop out of school, less likely to commit suicide, less likely to be in poverty, less likely to become juvenile delinquents, and for the girls, less likely to become teen mothers. They are healthier both emotionally and physically, even thirty years later, than those not so blessed by traditional parents.

Yes, when there is a mother and father that loves their children, the children typically do better. However, many children that come from single parent households are well off as well. Families with two mothers or two fathers can also raise good children. It would be better than a child living in an orphanage or a foster care home where they often times are neglected and not loved enough.

Social scientists have been surprisingly consistent in warning about the impact of fractured families. If present trends continue, the majority of children will have several “moms” and “dads,” perhaps six or eight “grandparents,” and dozens of half-siblings. It will be a world where little boys and girls are shuffled from pillar to post in an ever-changing pattern of living arrangements; where huge numbers of them will be raised in foster-care homes or living on the street, as millions do in countries all over the world today. Imagine an environment where nothing is stable and where people think primarily about themselves and their own self-preservation. And have you considered what will happen when homosexuals with children become divorced? Instead of two moms and two dads, they will have to contend with four moms or four dads. How would you like to be a new husband a generation later who instantly had four or six or eight mother-in-laws.

It wouldn’t happen. Simple as that.

We must also consider a world of the future where immorality is even more rampant than today, where both unbridled homosexual and heterosexual liaisons are the norm. The apostle Paul described such a society in the book of Romans, referring apparently to ancient Rome. He wrote, “They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless” (Romans 1:29 31).

How does this have anything to do with homosexuality?

It appears likely now that the demise of families will accelerate this type of decline dramatically, resulting in a chaotic culture that will rip kids apart emotionally.

3. Public schools in every state will embrace homosexuality.
With the legalization of homosexual marriage, every public school in the nation will be required to teach this perversion as the moral equivalent of traditional marriage between a man and a woman. Textbooks, even in conservative regions, will have to depict man/man and woman/woman relationships, and stories written for children as young as elementary school, or even kindergarten, will have to give equal space and emphasis to homosexuals. How can a child, fresh out of toddlerhood, comprehend the meaning of adult sexuality? The answer is, they can’t, but it is happening in the state of California already
If a toddler can do fine with heterosexual adult sexuality, I’m sure they can handle homosexuality. There are no studies that suggest children cannot handle homosexuality. After all, children also don’t see race. Why would a black mother and a white father different from 2 mothers or 2 fathers?

4. Adoption laws will be instantly obsolete.
From the moment that homosexual marriage becomes legal, courts will not be able to favor a traditional couple of one man and one woman in matters of adoption. Children will be placed in homes with parents representing only one sex on an equal basis with those having a mom and a dad. Even the polyamorous couples won’t be excluded. The prospect of fatherless and motherless children will not be considered in the evaluation of eligibility. It will be the law.

And why does this even matter? Single-parent homes are just as good.

5. Foster-care programs will be impacted dramatically.
Foster-care parents will be required to undergo sensitivity training to rid themselves of bias in favor of heterosexuality, and will have to affirm homosexuality in children and teens. Moral training, at least as it applies to sexuality, will be forbidden. Again, this is the current law in California.

Oh my god, children will have to be taught how to respect HUMANS. Oh the humanity! You know, children that are not accepted by their parents when they realize they’re homosexual do a lot worse than children with accepting families.

6. The health care system will stagger and perhaps collapse.
This could be the straw that breaks the back of the insurance industry in Western nations, as millions of new dependents become eligible for coverage. Every HIV-positive patient needs only to find a partner to receive the same coverage as offered to an employee. It is estimated by some analysts that an initial threefold increase in premiums can be anticipated; even with that, it may not be profitable for companies to stay in business.

Not all gays have AIDS, moron. It’s just easier to contract AIDS through anal penetration because the anus walls can tear easier. But most homosexual males don’t partake in anal intercourse. Only 15% do.

And how about the cost to American businesses? Will they be able to provide health benefits? If not, can physicians, nurses, and technicians be expected to work for nothing or to provide their services in exchange for a vague promise of payments from indigent patients? Try selling that to a neurosurgeon or an orthopedist who has to pay increased premiums for malpractice insurance. The entire health care system could implode.

Of course American businesses can handle it. Homosexuals are not always indigent people. Nor are they unhealthy.

Is it possible? Yes. Will it happen? I don’t know.

Is it possible? Not really. Will it happen? No.

7. Social Security will be severely stressed.
Again, with millions of new eligible dependents, what will happen to the Social Security system that is already facing bankruptcy? If it does collapse, what will that mean for elderly people who must rely totally on that meager support? Who is thinking through these draconian possibilities as we careen toward a brave new world?

Social Security is already stressed thanks to the baby-boomers. And even if homosexuals were straight, and wanted to marry, the same problems would still be occurring.

8. Religious freedom will almost certainly be jeopardized.
In order to get a perspective on where the homosexual activist movement is taking us, one can simply look at our neighbors to the north. Canada is leading the way on this revolutionary path. I could cite dozens of examples indicating that religious freedom in that country is dying. Indeed, on April 28, 2004, the Parliament passed bill C 250, which effectively criminalized speech or writings that criticize homosexuality. Anything deemed to be “homophobic” can be punished by six months in prison or by other severe penalties.

Good for Canada. Intolerance of a certain type of people is just wrong.

Pastors and priests in Canada are wondering if they can preach from Leviticus or Romans 1 or other passages from the writings of the apostle Paul. Will a new Bible be mandated that is bereft of “hate speech?” Consider this: A man who owned a printing press in Canada was fined $3,400 for refusing to print stationary for a homosexual activist organization.

“Hate speech” is not defined as saying something is a sin. Refusing to print stationary for a homosexual organization is discriminating and wrong. BIG difference. Yes, you can still be ignorant- just as long as you’re not committing hate crimes.

Censorship is already in full swing. One of our Focus on the Family radio programs on the subject of homosexuality was judged by the Canadian Radio and Television Commission to be “homophobic.” The radio station that carried the broadcast was censured for airing it, and I have not been able to address the issue since.

DUH! It probably was homophobic. Just by reading this ridiculous article makes me KNOW that your program was probably homophobic. You accuse homosexuals of being polygamists without any evidence, and use that as a basis for almost every argument.

Is that kind of censorship coming to the United States. Yes, I believe it is. Once homosexual marriage is legalized, if indeed that is where we are headed, laws based on what will be considered “equality” will bring many changes in the law. Furthermore, it is likely that non-profit organizations that refuse to hire homosexuals on religious grounds will lose their tax exemptions. Some Christian colleges and universities are already worrying about that possibility.

1. Censorship is already in US under the control of Conservatives. That's why you don't see many liberals on news stations. 2. Is it okay to deny a black man entrance into a building because he’s black? No. Is it okay to do the same to a homosexual? By your standards, yes, but it is just as discriminating and prejudice as the other. Of course “equality” is going to be effected. Our constitution guarantees every US citizen is born free with certain rights. You have to respect those rights, and you’re not. That is against the law. You are a bigot. It is NOT censorship, it is respect for a HUMAN.

9. Other nations are watching our march toward homosexual marriage and will follow our lead.
Marriage among homosexuals will spread throughout the world, just as pornography did after the Nixon Commission declared obscene material “beneficial” to mankind. Almost instantly, the English-speaking countries liberalized their laws against smut. America continues to be the fountainhead of filth and immorality, and its influence is global. Dr. Darrell Reid, president of Focus on the Family Canada, told me recently that his country is carefully monitoring what is happening in the United States. If we take this step off a cliff, the family on every continent will splinter at an accelerated rate. Conversely, our Supreme Court has made it clear that it looks to European and Canadian law in the interpretation of our Constitution. What an outrage! That should have been grounds for impeachment, but the Congress, as usual, remained passive and silent.

Who gives a shit if other countries follow us? I’m sure they actually don’t. Thanks to people like you, most other countries hate us. And homosexuality is not smut. It is a lifestyle. If other countries guarantee that their citizens can live a happy life with whomever they choose, more power to them.

Also, there is no proof that American families will fall apart due to homosexual marriage. Homosexual marriage does NOT affect heterosexual marriage.

10. The gospel of Jesus Christ will be severely curtailed.
The family has been God’s primary vehicle for evangelism since the beginning. Its most important assignment has been the propagation of the human race and the handing down of the faith to our children. Malachi 2:15 reads, referring to husbands and wives, “Has not the Lord made them one? In flesh and spirit they are His. And why one? Because He was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth.” That responsibility to teach the next generation will never recover from the loss of committed, God-fearing families. The younger generation and those yet to come will be deprived of the Good News, as has already occurred in France, Germany, and other European countries. Instead of providing for a father and mother, the advent of homosexual marriage will create millions of motherless children and fatherless kids. Are we now going to join the Netherlands and Belgium to become the third country in the history of the world to “normalize” and legalize behavior that has been prohibited by God himself? Heaven help us if we do!

Homosexuals do not create millions of motherless and fatherless kids. They take children out of horrible places like orphanages and foster care and place them in a loving home. Who even knows if God really exists? Who even knows if God really hates homosexuals? The word “homosexual” appeared in the bible in the 1950s. Previously the word now thought of to be homosexual was used to condone interracial marriage and was used to support apartheid. And even IF it means homosexual, the bible also states that not even human is without sin. There are a lot of sins in the bible that people still do: such as eating shellfish. That’s a sin. The 10 Commandants- tons of people break them every day. It’s not fair to pick one sin and label it as the worst out of all of them. It’s not fair to condone a certain type of people over their lifestyle decisions by a stupid thing in the Bible- which not everyone in the country believes.

And if the point of marriage is to procreate, what about sterile couples? Should we start to ban their marriage as well because they can’t reproduce? Of course not. Would it be fair to make a law saying that a married couple must produce children in the first 3 years of marriage or their marriage becomes void? No. The purpose is NOT to produce children, but is a statement- a commitment- to love.

11. The culture war will be over, and the world may soon become “as it was in the days of Noah?” (Matthew 24:37).
This is the climactic moment in the battle to preserve the family, and future generations hang in the balance. This apocalyptic and pessimistic view of the institution of the family and its future will sound alarmist to many, but I think it will prove accurate unless God’s people awaken and begin an even greater vigil of prayer for our nation. That’s why we are urgently seeking the Lord’s favor and asking Him to hear the petitions of His people and heal our land. As of this time, however, large segments of the church still appear to be unaware of the danger; its leaders are surprisingly silent about our peril (although we are tremendously thankful for the efforts of those who have spoken out on this issue).

Maybe large sections of the church are “unaware of the danger” because there really isn’t a danger. The world is NOT going to end because homosexuals are allowed to marry. It would be like saying Hurricane Katrina was caused because God was angry over people eating shellfish. No.

This reticence on behalf of Christians is deeply troubling. Marriage is a sacrament designed by God that serves as a metaphor for the relationship between Christ and His church. Tampering with His plan for the family is immoral and wrong. To violate the Lord’s expressed will for humankind, especially in regard to behavior that He has prohibited, is to court disaster.

If marriage is a metaphor for the relationship between Jesus and his church, why is it okay for atheists, agnostics, and people of other religions to marry? God created all creatures as well. With that, many animals should also be able to grasp holy divinity, right? Why are they not allowed to be married then? Why do they not hold legal standing? Maybe because the government, not GOD, decided this. Religion needs to stay out of politics. Religious bigots need to learn their fucking place. It’s not in the White House or any government building. Marriage is NOT a basis of religion, it is a basis of LOVE. It is a sign of LOVE. Not a chance for hetero couples to marry and to procreate. If that was the case, we wouldn’t be allowed to choose our couples. The best men and the best women would be married to produce the best children, but it is based on love, not increasing our genetic gene pool. Homosexuals, which already have the right to marry, are being denied. That is unconstitutional. This article is homophobic, immoral, intolerant, and anyone who believes it is an asshole and a bigot. To deny lovers the right to marry is cruel.
