If I tried to come up with the most cockamamie negative response I could to gay marriage, I could not compete with the ones being said seriously. They are from minds gone amok. I’ll list a few:
1.) Christians will be forced underground.
2.)It will stop children being born, ruin capitalism.
3.)Being against gay marriage is like being in the civil rights movement.
4.)Gays and lesbians hate God’s laws, to they hate God.
5.)Gays and lesbians don’t really want to get married, they just want to ruin marriage for everyone else.
It’s clear people who have said such ridiculous things do not like gays or gay marriage, but don’t want to admit this is the reason they are opposed. They feel compelled to dream up some reason outside their own personal distaste for it.
They have been unsuccessful at coming up with a good reason to hide their bad reason. I would expect them to continue to try.
Of course, there are those who make money opposing gay marriage. Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council tells subscribers money is needed. I suspect it’s cash cow for such organizations, even as they lose.
Opponents never mention that gay marriage will increase the stability of gay households, insuring more family care of household members and less government funded care. Nor, do they mention Gay marriage will allow less wasteful expenditures on family finances such as inheritance.
It’s impossible to deny, gay marriage is a good thing.
