• I actually can't think of any of the arguments against gay marriage that AREN'T ridiculous and flawed!
  • The majority of arguments against Gay marriage are based on the speculation that by allowing Gay/Lesbian to marry, the gates of depravity would swing wide open and society would be flooded with sexual perversion. There is an unmistakable message insinuated in this ridiculous argument; it is the idea that Gay men and women are sexual perverts Anti-Gay marriage proponents point towards pedophiles, rapists, polygamists, and people who are engaged in bestiality in an attempt to reason that if we let Gay marriage happen - one form of perversion - we will have to embrace all of these other forms of sexual deviance and, therefore, society will collapse. Let me use that same reasoning to argue a ban on all marriage. It is a fact that the vast majority of sexual psychopaths - sexual serial killers, serial rapists, rapists, pedophiles - are straight. there are members of a part of society that engage in deviant sexual behaviors (these straight sexual psychopaths), all members of that segment of society (straight men and women) should be banned from marriage so that no sexual perversions occur This same argument that is being used to deny Gay/Lesbian the right to marry and is just as ridiculous and flawed when it is linked to the sexual perversions of certain individuals. I'd like to see any of these anti-Gay proponents put up a cogent, strong argument against Gay marriage without insinuating it with sexual perversion - I doubt that they can. Unequivocally, there are sexual psychopaths in every segment of society. In my opinion, these criminals should receive no leniency and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law! They wreak havoc and commit heinous crimes which result in untold pain and suffering. However, their depravity cannot be used vilify and deny the remaining Gay/Lesbian, law-abiding, tax paying citizens the legal right to marry. This is where the issues of equality/inequality come in. People have the right to speak their opinion even if it is shortsighted, ignorant, and fueled by fear. Human beings - regardless of religious affiliation, social or economic status, or sexual orientation - have a natural propensity to forge social, emotional, and economic bonds. When these bonds are nurtured and strengthened between two, they benefit the family. A bonded, strong family strengthens the neighborhood. A strong neighborhood supports a healthy community which, in turn, makes for a powerful country and society.
  • 1. That somehow giving equal marriage rights to the entire population, instead of a portion of it, will force the government to also recognize polygamous marriages, and marriages to pets and inanimate objects. NO pending marriage rights legislation also covers polygamous marriages, and pets and mailboxes cannot enter into contracts. 2. That somehow granting equal access to the state-given legal status of marriage will require churches to stop performing religious ceremonies that are an OPTIONAL part of marriage. 3. That ending marriage discrimination in the US will "require" teaching kindergarteners about gay sex. Actually, #3 is the most ludicrous one I have heard. So switch them. lol
  • I think the most ridiculous and flawed argument against gay and lesbian marriage is: Because God said it's wrong. I can't believe that gays and lesbians are being denied the right to marriage and happiness just because the Bible said so. :(
  • In Ireland there is an organisation called the Iona Institute (for religion and society) They are a conservative catholic group...anti pretty much everything. They constantly spout catholic rhetoric and are vehemently oppoced to the the "gay agenda" :) Their argument against gay marriage is that it will destroy the institution of marriage and destroy the special status of straight married couples. That it will destroy the family and promote dysfunctional environments for children to grow up in.. "The social function marriage plays in society — providing children with their natural mother and father — would be lost.” Their arguments are ridiculous and infuriating!!!
