Why a Good Person Can Vote Against Same-Sex Marriage

All "gay-rights" arguments are based on the false premise that homosexuality is both innate and morally neutral. Acceptance of that premise is largely based on the fact that people don't want their sexual preferences (however bizarre) to be judged, and therefore are unwilling to judge those of others. If you believe homosexuality is anything other than a fetish, or sexual addiction, then you're either uninformed or in denial -- possibly both. The fact that people don't choose their sexual issues, but can only choose whether to address them, doesn't stop said issues from being issues.

What it really is is this: They will recognize no authority higher than themselves. As was said long ago, "Every man did what was right in his own eyes". That resulted in judgment then, and it will again.

Good points.

BTW, Robert, you really should change your handle on here to avoid be mistaken for the homosexualist Robert. Perhaps something like "Not The Robert Who Loves Sodomy."

Sexuality is still poorly understood. But I have another question for you. If science eventually comes to the conclusion that homosexuality is innate, would you change your opinion of it? I ask that you try and think seriously about this premise because your answer offers important insight into your approach to this issue.

Sexuality is not as poorly understood as you say. Science -- at least honest science -- and other aspects of the real world already show that homosexuality is not innate.

Here we go again, Herald.
If science eventually comes to the conclusion that RAPE or BEASTIALITY is innate, would you change your opinion of it? Please.
Just because you cannot follow the discussion and because you insist that sexuality is poorly understood, doesn´t mean that us adults cannot discuss it without your bizarre illogical questions.

Next week voters in Maine, Maryland and Washington will vote on whether to redefine marriage to include same-sex couples.

Given that there are good people on both sides of this issue, how are we to explain their opposing views?

The primary explanation is this: Proponents and opponents ask two different questions.

Proponents of same-sex marriage ask: Is keeping the definition of marriage as man-woman fair to gays? Opponents of same-sex marriage ask: Is same-sex marriage good for society?

Few on either side honestly address the question of the other side. Opponents of same-sex marriage rarely acknowledge...
