10 Reasons Why Gay Marriage Is

*Before reading this post, please be advised that it is intended to be sarcastic, intended to show how ridiculous the arguments against gay marriage are.  I do NOT believe or support the 10 listed reasons.*


1) Being gay is not natural.  It's a choice.  Marriage should not be allowed for people who make unnatural choices, like religious preference, hair color, and political affiliation.

2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior.  People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all.  Women are still property, blacks can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed.  The sanctity of Brittany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children.  Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion.  In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country.  That's why we have only one religion in America.

9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home.  That's why we, as a society, expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society.  We could never adapt to new social norms.  Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

Very well written. Thank you.

THANK YOU! Loved reading this!

I love this !

I am a Christian and I feel they have the right to choose to live together. However I also think it should be called something different from marriage. It is a bit different, why not accept that and give it a different name. I think thats what a lot of people get upset about is people cant accept that its the same but it dosn't have to be. <br />
<br />
I don't look down on Gays. I feel Jesus dided for all of us to come to him as we are. We are all sinners and need Jesus and so many people think they are rigteous but to God none of us are perfect (all our righeousness are not good enough). Its in that relationship with the Holy Spirit when we accept his gift of relationship through Jesus Christ that makes us different and new. So many people don't understand that and will mock or look down on another not realizing some one else could do the same to them. <br />
<br />
Through my relationship with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit I learned first hand how much God loves me then he showed me the mercy he had for me. Then he showed me the mercy I was to give freely as I had recieved and to let others know my Jesus. So know this Jesus loves you all. The Holy Spirit is a personal relationship with God if you want it seek it out and he will give it to you. John 14:26 ish. There are many fruits of the Spirit. Love, joy, peace, wisdom, knowledge, to be had that comes through that relationship. May you too share that experience. <br />
<br />
And may others know Real Christians don't hate Homosexuals. Neither does Jesus. He died for you all as much as anyone. The kingdom of God is at hand.

i totally get you and i agree!!!

I am gay. Does anyone hate me?

You're clearly very new to the Internet. Yes, they do.

my post wasn't up but 10minutes.glad your following me.people change their hair color just like their sexuality.gays on tv,how you think they got there,equal rights know who runs the IRS and P.O. and how that started.lawsuits for equal rights.volumes.its called respect.

Dude, you can't change your sexuality like you can your hair colour. Go out right now and enjoy sex with another man if that's true.
Also, you said that watching two men care for each other will have the same effect on children as taking drugs and all gay people are sick, and that being morally bankrupt is the same as gayness, then said you don't have anything against us. Why the hell do you hate people who are quitely minding their own business and not harming anyone? There is no evidence being gay or near gays will damage a child, if anything it will hopefully make them more open minded.
And before you bring your faith into this, we don't care because I'm not all that sure a book written nearly 2000 years ago can tell us how to lead our lives today, and your religion is not shared by most people so don't apply it to them.
And if you do reply to this learn hoe to type with spaces after full stops. I can't tell what you're saying.

**** off and message of hate point was missed by my morality views.i think all should see things at the right time in their life and make their own decisions up,i'm just expressing my belief that our kids are getting exposed to too much of sex,gay or straight,violence and drugs in their daily lives.tell me atheist and sleepless,if alot of politicians are corrupt should we then say, oh that is just their lifestyle and its ok to be one.if i tell my grandson about jesus but he grows up an atheist,its nothing,its his beliefs.same thing about,i don't hate,i said I think your sick.doesn't mean i hate you. i said my beliefs are spiritual.a man's kids pay for his sins.or you make your own luck in life,however you want to put it.i have strong beliefs and i put them in a book.i did not strike out at an individual.i'm just putting my beliefs out there.hey guess what,i have all types in my my family.

i love + pray for all especially my enemies and those who are sic.all should be able to live in peace.but when you show people using drugs(their sic)on tv or two gay guys kissing(their sic) during daytime that what our children should see.if you do drugs or are gay,you lost faith or never had it.a gay guy thinks there is no woman for faith that GOD has someone for everyone.GOD has a plan for all thats coming to an end.GOD's plan is for us to procreate and teach our children from the lessons we've have a world with no more wars,no more hate.were not there and time is running out.fing a guy is a wasted war,you waste no shots and mankind is in a war for survival.were teaching our children how to have misery,a wasted life,remember,TIME is running out

Very good piece of writing. This was a perfect tong in cheek crack at the morons who think the world revolves around there own beliefs. I would like to say good job!

ty 4 the list

LOL! Yeah... I guess so... although then we would have another list of the ignorant!

It's so funny that this is still going and some people still can't figure out the humor here! Really, sort of a sad commentary, isn't it!

Dragon, I like the term Knee Jerks, I'm going to start using it now, thanks. :-)<br />
<br />
JimmO, great post, thank you :-)

I was a member of Tribe at one point and posted an article that was controversial but in the subject line I placed a large QUESTION MARK. I got so much crap from people over that including friends. I finally realized and wrote another article about COMPREHENSION. Of all the hate mail I got, one person wrote back and apologized stating that they had not comprehended my intent in the posting and were very sorry for their knee jerk reaction. That ruined it on Tribe for me though. <br />
<br />
That's the new term for people that have no comprehension skills. Knee Jerks. <br />
<br />
Great Post JimmO.

pouting and sighing is sexy.

*pout*<br />
<br />

No, if that were true there'd only be 7 footers in the NBA. <br />
<br />

please <br />
oh please <br />
say #2 is real<br />
<br />
I want to be a few inches taller

Ya, their strawman arguments are backed up with paper mache fortitudes. They usually fold like lawn chairs. Either that or they start preaching.

well since you didn't erase his comments, Troubleshooter, I assumed you didn't block him. How disappointing that he didn't post anything else.... lol

Yes, they are quite ridiculous. And thank you for the disclaimer at the top. I apologize for being to quick to comment without first checking you out and noticing that you do support gay rights. EP is an open site and sometimes it gets a weirdo using it as a forum to vent hatred. Obviously this was not the case. Like I said before, as a straight man I believe in live and let live and commend I commend you for bringing these issues to light.

that was me. I dunno about that statement, because I think there are stages. People don't just go from being KKK racists to embracing interracial marriages. Along the way they learn (oh so slowly) that the rationales for their irrational hate and fear are ridiculous, and so they adapt and learn (oh so slowly) to accept integration into schools, then blacks voting, then maybe interracial marriage.

Well obviously those brats are going to be failures. <br />
<br />

LOL!!!! That was great! :-D

Yes, and one of them appears to be you, lol.

I love this list! I actually wrote something very similar for a paper in my American Government class, and I got an A. I was supposed to do research, but he didn't require us to cite our sources, so I decided to be a snarky little biotch.

Sarcasm it may be,<br />
but there seem to be a few individuals through these comments taking it too seriously.

I disagree completely.<br />
And I will voice, as you have done,<br />
my beliefs just as freely.<br />
<br />
"""We could never adapt to new social norms""""<br />
<br />
What do you THINK we've been DOING for the past hundreds of years?????<br />
<br />
Adapting, changing, even"dealing with".<br />
New trends, foreign exchanged students, individuals looking for a place to live in this "free" country of ours.<br />
<br />
How can you even BEGIN to compare Gays to ANIMALS!?<br />
That is a SICK way to describe a HUMAN BEING!<br />
Discriminate all you want, do as you please, but anyone in their right mind knows this act is WRONG.<br />
<br />
African Americans CAN marry Caucasians, that's obvious enough.<br />
Being gay IS a natural part of MANY individuals' lives!<br />
What so many people put aside is the fact that you cannot control who it is you're attracted to/love.<br />
Gay marriage would not "encourage" people to be gay,<br />
I believe the only so called "harm" it will do is encourage people to finally come out and stop hiding.<br />
<br />
""Women are still property, blacks can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.""<br />
<br />
I don't know if you're ridiculously behind in society or you're just being unbelievably cruel agreeing with this list.<br />
<br />
Gay couples do not bare children, unless they are female.<br />
Why is it SO wrong if you are male, but it is perfectly fine if you are female??? Talk about sexism. <br />
So many straight couples give up their children because they either don't want them, they can't handle the responsibility, or the children are taken away from the parents because they are not fit and shelter those children under unsuitable homes. <br />
So you let me know if the Gay community is either destroying, or building lives.<br />
<br />
There are plenty of Gay couples who do NOT raise gay children.<br />
You know why that is?<br />
It's because they are who they are from the moment they were brought into this world.<br />
Many Gay couples ADOPT.<br />
They're giving children homes, food, clothing, and a loving family who will be there through thick and thin.<br />
<br />
As for single parents,<br />
I, myself, along with MANY others,<br />
Encourage those individuals to live their lives to the fullest extent and in the best possible manner.<br />
My mother is a single parent,<br />
I am 18 going on 19.<br />
She raised me [and my two younger sisters] to become one independent pain in the ***. <br />
She left my so called "father" to make a life worth living,<br />
rather than let the abuse go any further.<br />
So yes,<br />
I do believe that single parents are so much stronger than you lead them on to be in this list.<br />
<br />
The extent of your uncanny cruelty has gone a bit too far.<br />
How can you stand there and push our faces into the garbage you've agreed with, enough to post it!?<br />
<br />
As for the title of your "experience" page:<br />
Then why, prey tell, does this page mention so much more than just Gay Marriages?<br />
<br />
Religion, by the way, has absolutely NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS ****!

Too totally true! Even funnier when you get that people are too dense to get the humor...
