The idea of marriage between same sex is a travesty to the institution of marriage. Same sex marriage is abominable and the union of two men or two women should never be called marriage. The pursuit of happiness as stated in the constitution is one of the biggest argument for same sex marriage, they can have their happiness, just do not call it marriage.
One of the biggest fight in America, is the fight for equality. In the fifties and sixties, black Americans fought for equal rights, and this was one of the longest and most publicized fight since the abolishment of slavery. Today there is a new, tempestuous storm on the horizon— legalizing same sex marriage. Before defending the rights of same sex marriage, certain questions must be answered: are gays American citizen; are they humans; and do they pay taxes? The answer to these questions is yes. Then why are they being deny the right to marry? Simple, a marriage is the union between a male and a female. Therefore, gays do enjoy the rights of the American people. They have all the right of any American citizen, and as soon as they fit the criteria for marriage they will be given the right to marry.
States regulate marriage in many ways Roughly half of all states prohibit first cousins from marrying, and all prohibit marriage of closer blood relatives, ..In all states, it is illegal to attempt to marry more than one person, or even to pass off more than one person as one’s spouse. Some states restrict the marriage of people suffering from syphilis or other venereal diseases. Homosexuals, therefore, are not the only people to be denied the right to marry the person of their choosing (5).
Apparently Mr. Kolasinski is not the only one who agrees that gays already has all the right that each American citizen has. Eddie Thompson at AD authorden.com agrees too, he says:
Gay and lesbians already have their rights equally protected under the law. They have the exact rights that he has; the rights to marry a member of the opposite sex like he has. Marrying a member of the opposite sex is everyone's rights. “What is being suggested by the gay agenda is not 'equal rights' but 'extra rights.'" The same way one cannot reap the benefits of an education without going to school, gay and lesbian cannot reap the benefits of marriage without actually marrying in its traditional sense. Some people have chosen to remain single for myriad of reasons, “and these people are not clamoring for the rights granted to couples who marry.“ Consequently, people who refused traditional marriage should not be granted the rights of married couples. They should not be rewarded for their sexual deviation. “ In fact, most of the so-called “rights” married couples have can be obtained through a lawyer’s legal maneuvers. “
Documents of the United States constitution, Declaration of Independent, and the Bill of Rights are testimonies of the freedom enjoy by Americans. Unfortunately, our founding fathers were unaware that they neglected to enact another document, the Bill of Rights for same sex marriage. Had they not been negligence, the Bill of Right would read thus: The constitution of the United States of America do apologize to the American people for the travesty it is about to commit on the sanctity of marriage.
The people of the United States of America must now recognize the union of two men or two women, and give it the distinguish name of marriage. The same privilege given to a man and a woman who form a union will now be given to marriages of same sex.
A man and a man, or a woman and a woman who chooses to love each other and decides to consummate that love through marriage will be given a legal document testifying to that fact.
If such parties choose to, they are allowed to raise children, but not before they have decided who will be mommy, and who will be daddy. This is required so that the children will not be confused why their friends have a man and a woman for mommy and daddy. When this bill is passed several more undesirable groups will be fighting for rights that cannot be their's.
Same sex getting married is against the norm; it is also against moral law and physical law. Does this mean that gay couples should not find happiness like other people? No, it does not, they can be happy in whatever way they want, just do not ask society to accept their union as a marriage. The laws of physic say two negatives or two positives cannot attract. Even nature proves this fact. Plants that are here today and gone tomorrow cannot pollinate without the attraction of a male and female zygote. No one has the right to tell one how to live, but one has the right not to recognize the union of two same sex sharing a home, and calling themselves married.
They're (homosexuals) loyal to their mates, are monogamous, devoted partners. They value and participate in family life, are committed to making their neighborhoods and communities safer and better places to live, and honor and abide by the law. Many make valuable contributions to their communities, serving on school boards, volunteering in community charities, and trying to be good citizens. In doing so, they take full advantage of their relationship to make not only their own lives better, but those of their neighbors as well.
Society argues that homosexuality is biblically wrong, and that might be so; nevertheless, the issue is not about religion or morality; it is about marriage. No one is trying to enforce their opinion on gays or is trying to convert them. From the beginning marriage has always been between male and female. Animals have mating season, and even though one may find a dog or a cat having several mating partners during one night; there has never been a report that any of these animals has ever been caught mating with the same gender. If animals can make the decision not to mate with their own sex, Why then, do human beings want to behave lower than the animals. And if they choose not to exercise more intelligence than animals, why do they flaunt it, why not keep it to themselves and not dare society with wanting something they can never have.
William J. Bennett in Catholic Education and Resource Center also supports the fact that marriage would loose its essence if gays are allowed the right to marry. The institution of marriage is already fragile, and marriage is not resilient; the institution is already fragile and widening its explanation to include same-sex marriages would stretch it so far, it would be unrecognizable. “On what principled grounds could the advocates of same-sex marriage oppose the marriage of two consenting brothers? How could they explain why we ought to deny a marriage license to a bisexual who wants to marry two people?”
People who support and fight for gay marriage are the same people who will fight for tolerance in schools. School age is an impressionable age; and children who are already faced with peer pressure will have to contend with choosing to be or not to be homosexual. Once and for all, the debate of gay marriage should be stemmed before it becomes a run away train. Children are already experimenting with drugs and sex, they do not need to be confused anymore by making them doubt their sexuality.
Some may think that love isthe onlybasic fora marriage. Be that as it may, justbecausetwo peopleof the same sex loveeach other does not meanthat theyarequalify for marriage. Homosexuals want to get married because they want to claim legal status, They already have legal status, they just cannot get married status privileges. If they want to protect each other from medical decision, then make a living will. Sorry, they cannot file income taxes together, they are not married, and that is a privilege for married people. If gays are going against the norms of society, then the expression of their love for each other can be express as tangible as they want, but not with a legal writ call marriage certificate.
Mr. Bidstrup defense for same sex marriage is getting thin, he truly believes that gays are born that way, they cannot help who they are. I would like to ask Mr. Bidstrup another question, if he knew that both his parents are thieves, would he go around stealing claiming that it is his inheritance. Just because one has a natural propensity to do something, does not make it right, and it does not mean that this person has no will power to change?
People have also debated the fact that denying gays the right to get married is sexual discrimination., or discrimination against minority. None of this is true. There was a time when hate crimes a against gays were prevalent, but the authorities came to their defense, the same way they do for any other hate crimes. As a matter of fact, this kind of crime has no tolerance in America. There are no discrimination against gays, unless they become ridiculous, like wanting to be treated like women or wanting to be treated with marital status. Like any other minority groups some people in society are going to treat gays with a certain kind of discrimination, and most of this foolishness is due to ignorance.
There should never be any controversy between the government and gays, when it comes to the decision of marriage. Gays need to debate amongst themselves and answer the following question; do they have the rights and privileges as other American male or female, not how can we have the American government give us legal marriage status. The answer to the first question is yes. However, they will always come up with a negative answer when their marriage status is debated, that is, if they are honest. They just do not fit the category.
While the origins of same-sex attractions may be complex, there is no convincing evidence that a homosexual identity is ever something genetic or inborn. We oppose the vigorous efforts of homosexual activists to demand that homosexuality be accepted as equivalent to heterosexuality in law, in the media, and in schools. Attempts to join two men or two women in "marriage" constitute a radical redefinition and falsification of the institution (Family Research Council).
Gays will have to agree to disagree that their demand is not going to be met, The majority of Americans are not going to vote for “gay Marriage,” Now, do homosexuals want marriage or equal right; they themselves know that they are not really fighting for civil rights. What they are actually fighting for is to be recognized as normal people and marriage will give them that position. Gays do not have much to fight about; they live together as couples, they are allow employment, even when they blatantly expose their sexual deviance, they have gotten sufferance, recently President Obama decided that a citizens should not be deny the to right to serve his or her county because of their sexual preference.
Gays have nothing to fight for, they have all the rights of American citizens. They can ask for acknowledgement of their commitment to each other, they can make legal agreement to protect their rights, but they can not, and should never ask for a marriage certificate. They can have any kind of ceremony to cement their commitment. They can enjoy their lives as they are now; but as married couple, no, that is an offense and an insult to marriage.
