Gays Don’t Have a Right to Marriage

Different is only unequal if you allow it to be. Irish is not Italian, black is not white, tall is not short, and so on. Yet the law, at least ostensibly, provides the same rights/benefits for all. At least now it does. If the laws were to give same sex couples the same legal rights would they still not be "homosexual" (as opposed to "heterosexual")? Of course, the label would be different but the rights would be the same. Just like the other examples. Would anyone want to be called the same as the other? I doubt it. Celebrate the difference as individuals under the equal protection of the law. So what if the terms are different if the law's equal. There would be much more acceptance and a lot less controversy. What's wrong with that?

The equality is already there. Homosexuals already have the same rights that heterosexuals have. They can marry as long as they marry someone of the opposite sex. That's the same law I must abide by. Ergo, equality already exists. BTW, words have meaning. Some differences we would rather not celebrate - say, rapist, murderer, etc.

If one is a Christian (and I am a Christian) the difference is obvious. Nowhere in the Bible does it say it is a sin to be Irish or Italian, black or white, tall or short, rich or poor, man or woman, and or smart or slow, but it does say it is a sin to be a practicing homosexual. Acceptance can be another word for condoning. God does not sin condone and He does not expects us too either..

The mere words same-sex marriage connote it’s not a “marriage” by use of the term, but rather an aberration of a societal norm that a small group are determined to force onto the majority. Only 3% of Americans are gay.

Since the beginning of time, before marriage was formally recognized by state laws, it was defined between a man and a woman not just for kicks, but because people of the opposite sex have coupled off to procreate, as a means of continuing society. It takes a man and woman to biologically create a baby, so naturally society...
