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.

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

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

pouting and sighing is sexy.

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.

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

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!

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

ty 4 the list

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!

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 tv.is 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 him.no 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 learned.to have a world with no more wars,no more hate.were not there and time is running out.fing a guy is a wasted shot.in 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

**** off and message of hate huh.my 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 sexuality.me,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 circle.in my family.

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 lawsuits.you know who runs the IRS and P.O. and how that started.lawsuits for equal rights.volumes.its called respect.

I am gay. Does anyone hate me?

i totally get you and i agree!!!

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.

THANK YOU! Loved reading this!

Very well written. Thank you.
