This is why gay marriage is WRONG.

Stolen from many people from all over the internets.

1) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Brittany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans

Norway has had same sex domestic partnerships since the 80's they recognized a fully gender neutral marriage law last year and it was effective January 1 this year.

I have to say Norway's average Norwegians are so old-fashioned and xenophobic it's very scary (I know, I live here...dual citizenship with USA) and yet they can manage it.

Mexico has begun to recognize same-sex marriage and they are so amazingly catholic, the pope is pissed, but they can do it.

Brazil has recently recognized gender issues to the extent that gender reassignment surgery is now covered under their social state sponsored health care system because people need to be complete to have total mental and physical health.

Why is USA so fracking far behind the times?!?!?!

I realize this is a bit late, but on #8:

The really sad thing is that there are mainstream Christian denominations that _want_ to marry gay people, and they're not allowed to.

The official Methodist position is that it's up to each minister, as long as it's not against the local laws. One of the two branches of Episcopalianism officially recognizes gay marriages, and they allow but don't require their priests to perform them. What right does the state have to tell them that their definition of "holy matrimony" doesn't count?

Maybe if gay marriage were framed as a fight for the rights of legitimate religions to make religious decisions, it would be harder for the bigots to fight.

But probably not.

Believe it or not, every reason you listed has been used here in Oregon over the past three years during the fight to "define" marriage.

What a load of crap - did they cut out the part of the Declaration of Independence which states we have an inalienable right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"?
