Same Sex Marriage.
Objective: You will be engaged in an in-depth study of same sex marriages. This project will involve research and the result will be an argument presented in the form of a debate.
1. Homosexuality is not natural.
Much like eyeglasses, cesarean sections, birth control and painkillers are not natural.
2. The purpose of marriage is to procreate.
Therefore, sterile males, women that cannot bear children, the elderly, infirm, and infertile CANNOT be married.
3. Living with gay parents will adversely impact childrens lives.
Living with abusive parents, alcoholics, drug addicted parents, and parents that are never home is worse than living in a household with two loving gay people.
4. Gay Parents raise Gay Children.
Straight parents only raise straight children.
5. Gay marriage will encourage people to be Gay.
If you hang around too many redheads, you will begin to sprout red hair.
6. Gay marriage is against religion.
Even that of all you Atheists and Satanists.
This especially true about those of you who have no religion.
7. Children need both male and female influences in their lives.
Single, divorced, and widowed couples are forbidden to raise children.
8. Gay marriages are loveless and will result in divorce.
Because divorce is really an illusion, straight couples never have those.
9. Our society is not ready for this magnitude of change. It will be rejected.
As was the freedom of the slaves, the right to vote for women, and the accepting of blacks as equals.
The arguments against gay marriage are innumerous. For example, that of taxes. Same sex couples arent looking for special treatment, they are simply asking for the same treatment as EVERYBODY ELSE. Is that too difficult to ask? Women had to fight for decades to earn their rights as equals, and African Americans were enslaved for hundreds of years before they got theirs. It took a war for them to be called equal. Is that what has to happen? Has our nation fallen to such a low where unless it is forced to accept something that it will remain blind, close-minded and unaccepting?
Hate, violence, kill, rape, murder, death, drugs, fuck, shit, bitch, cunt, bastard, faggot, gay, dyke.
Words we hear every day. They are acceptable in conversation.
Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual and transgender.*
Some of the most feared words in the English language.
*When said with the words: Love, marriage, union, and sex lead to disgust and revulsion.
These people want what everyone else wants out of a marriage. Love, happiness, companionship and sometimes children. Consider this, can you right now, be legally married to the person you love? If you said yes, consider yourself very lucky.
Out of the 50 United States, only Massachusetts recognizes same sex marriages.
(While others have created different types of unions to substitute for marriages)
Who is the state to dictate who is allowed happiness?
Tom and Dylan have been living together for 15 years.
Samantha and Alex have also been living together for 15 years.
Each couple has one child.
They are both happy families.
Every night, after work, Tom gets drunk and beats Dylan. Their child runs into its room and hides under a blanket, waiting for the crying and yelling to stop.
Every night before bed, Alex and Samantha tuck their child into bed, read to it and kiss it goodnight. They have never hit each other, nor have they ever hit their child.
Samantha and Alex have their child taken away from them.
Dylan, a 28 year old woman dies from loss of blood after she fell down the stairs leaving her child in the custody of her abusive, alcoholic husband.
Both Sam and Alex are women.
A child has been ripped from its loving family because it has two loving mothers instead of just one.
Each individual is granted the right to Life, liberty and the persuit of happiness and yet they condemn happiness when it involves attractions within the same sex. Who is the state to deny any individual the right to love whom they want and marry whom they choose and live happily?
Dont let them take away your rights.
First, they tell you whom you cant marry.
Next, they will tell you what to eat,
Where to work,
When to breathe,
And who to be.
