First off, everyone against gay marriage isn't a bible thumper
or narrow-minded conservative. Most people who have real, substantial reasons are shunned to the side.
A union between a homosexual couple that is under fire by most states. It shouldn't be allowed, but not because it's un-Christian, but because marriage is a union between a MAN and a WOMAN, and, historically and nowadays, has nothing to do with love or feelings or religion.
Marriage was just a union between man and woman that guaranteed some money on both of their behalfs and child-bearing without shame of adultery/fornication. Later it became a big deal about loving who you're getting married to, but marriage really has nothing to do with that. Nowadays there's even shotgun weddings, so it still doesn't always regard love. Homosexuals can't reproduce, so marriage for them (in the archaic sense) is pointless. They'd just be life partners.
Gays are great and shouldn't be discriminated against, but they can't be given the right to marry because they're the same gender and that's not marriage. A civil union
or some type of legal partnership should suffice, but marriage
is between a man and a woman. I think they should create something for gays.
Bob and Sally got married and then two weeks later when to Steve and Joe's 'barriage' or somethin like that. There. Gay marriage. Ish.
