Oh man.<quoted text>
No, I doubt their family would extend past the two of them since it is so hard to adopt if you aren't married. I'm really only talking about families with children here.
I'm against gay marriage, not gay civil unions. If a gay couple is able to provide physically, and emotionally for a child, I'm fine with gay adoption. The child may have a tough life explaining why they have 2 dads or 2 moms, but as our society gets more used to it, this will get easier too. Not sure about in school though. Kids are relentless sometimes with the way they pick on each other.
What I was saying earlier though, is if the statistics for monogamy with gays rings true in gay unions, there will be more children hurt by families split up than we have currently. It's already bad with straight couples that divorce, but bring in a population with a worse record, then it will make the total worse as well. The end result will be more kids with a jacked up home life.
Ok, the reason kids would give another kid hell over having two dads is because people like you give them the ammunition to do it. You fill their heads with spook stories and demean gays through your language and attitude. Of course they are going to give them hell. I used to make "faggot" jokes in school. Didn't have a clue it was a bad thing. If my parents and society had a healthy attitude and understanding of sexual orientation those jokes wouldn't be told. So don't pretend otherwise.
And let's not pretend marriage is in good shape. The divorce rate is through the roof without the aid of gay couples. Allowing for a potential increase in marriages of about 3-5 % is not going to tip the scale, my friend. That is a phenomenally bad argument.
"We want to protect our divorce rate" my ass. You want to protect your bigoted beliefs. You seem like a nice guy, why do you support this nonsense?
The other guys have asked you a zillion times to explain how gay marriage would hurt you. Best you can provide is this?
Game over. Gay marriage is going to be reality across the land. LDS might as well join 2013 since Jesus doesn't appear to be coming back any time soon.
