I don’t see what the big deal is. Steve loves John, John loves Steve. Why shouldn’t John and Steve be allowed to get married so they can enjoy the same legal protections afforded to Sue and Dave? For some reason, this topic brings out the worst in people and I have heard the most idiotic reasons why gay couples should not be allowed to get married. Keeping to the standards of my blog I’ve decided to post just a few of my favorite idiotic views that opponents of gay marriage continuously use.
#1 – If gay people are allowed to marry what’s next, people marrying horses?!
Marriage is a legally binding contract. As such you need two consenting adults to enter in a contract. As we all know horses, dogs, cats, pigs, cows and such are not capable of signing a document nor are capable of providing consent. Now if the horse happens to be Mr. Ed he can provide the yay or nay.
#2 – Marriage in this country has always been between a man and a woman!
Things in this great country of ours do change. Why not change once again? Of course we can leave it alone like abolishing slavery and allowing women the right to vote.
#3 – Marriages are for procreation and deserves special social recognition!
One does not need to be married in order to procreate. Just ask all the single baby mommas walking around the country.
#4 – God is not in favor of gay marriage!
Really, has anyone spoken to God and asked for his/her/it’s opinion?
#5 – Allowing gay people to marry will be the downfall of our society!
LOL! In what freaking way? Oh, I know! Gay people will adopt children thus causing those children to become gay. Those gay children who are now gay adults will then adopt more children causing them to be gay and bang….before you know it our society will become overrun with gays!
#6 – Marriage is defined as a union between a man and a woman!
And gay was defined as being joyful, glee and happy until the 1920’s and didn’t hold its existing definition until the 1950’s although the word gay goes all the way back to around 12th century England.
Stupidity at its finest ladies and gentlemen! I will now eagerly wait for the ton of asinine comments that will be arriving.
