Gays already have the right to marry. They have exactly the same rights as heterosexuals. No more, no less. I am not free to marry a member of my own sex and neither are they.
Gays, just like heterosexuals, are free to marry a member of the opposite sex.
“But we don’t want too,” they cry. And in those words they declare their true desire. See, gays do not want equal rights. We have already established that. They have equal rights. It just doesn’t suit them.
Gays want extra rights. Rights above and beyond those extended to the hetero community. Is this fair?
Something that is seldom mentioned when we talk of minority rights is the watering down of a nation’s solidarity. Whenever a minority is given rights outside of those extended to the rest of society (and make no mistake, no matter how Hollywood portrays it gays only represent about 2% of the community), the foundational spirit of the nation is weakened. A person is no longer an American, Englishman or whatever, they are a Gay American. The log has been split and therefore weakened.
Where does such a person’s loyalty reside. With the nation or with their subgroup?
Divisions and subdivisions are not good for a nation. In the extreme example the country forgets the values that had once united them as one people.
In our recent history, if it were not for a united home front, everyone working for a single purpose as a single people, the allies would never have defeated the Nazis in WWII. I doubt that if the same circumstances were presented today such a unity could be achieved. The people are simply too divided.
No, it isn’t fair that a minority group should be handed the power to cause such a division. In particular when this right that they’re marching for is above and beyond the rights of the rest of the community.
Aren’t I being a little unfair? I mean, come on, gays just have no interest in a heterosexual relationship. It’s repugnant to them, right? Why should they be forced to conform to a societies values that run at odds to their own?
And the question ought to be; why should society have to change to accommodate every whim and fancy?
Marraige is one man and one woman. When you have two men or two women you have something else. Marraige was created by God. Does anyone really think He would allow a union expressly forbidden by Him to foul its sanctity?
