Anti Gay Marriage

In honor of LGBT Pride Month here is my imaginary conversation with someone who opposes Same Sex marriage:

Do you support same sex marriage under US law?

No, I think marriage should be between a man and a woman.

Are you in favor of two consenting adults getting married?

Yes, as long as it's a man and a woman getting married.

Why are you opposed to same sex marriage?

Because that would be redefining marriage?

The legal contract of marriage has evolved throughout history why not allow for it to evolve so as to reflect the contract between two consenting adults since that is where you and I agree?

Because children should be raised by a mother and a father.

We are not talking about "parenting" we are talking about marriage, a legal contract between two consenting adults.

I believe we need a constitutional amendment which allows the people to decide on the laws that they live under.

Are you saying that you believe that the majority should be able to vote on the rights of the minority regarding same sex marriage? In that case, last I checked according to the 2002 census women outnumbered men in the United States. Would you be ok with having the people vote on laws that will grant certain benefits to women and not to men? Why not pass laws that favor one race over another? Hitler favored one race over another, are you telling me you're like Hitler?


Stop being such a Nazi and let the Gays marry each other already.
