This article is horrendous. It reads like something a high school freshman wrote.<quoted text>
Here is a decent article:
False. Historically, marriage has often been polygamous, with men having multiple wives who represent pieces of property. Mistresses and other lovers have also been acceptable in many societies.Marriage has been universally acknowledged throughout history as a legal contract between a man and a woman in which there is emotional and sexual fidelity, along with childrearing.
False. Marriage was redefined for many states 50 years ago when interracial marriage bans were discarded. Was society dramatically affected? No. Marriage was redefined 10 years ago in Massachusetts to allow gay couples. Was society dramatically affected? No.So, when marriage is redefined, the society is dramatically affected.
These changes are not related to gay marriage. They are anti-discrimination laws.Legalizing gay marriage means changing the laws of the land. The ramifications are vast, and we are seeing the effects of homosexual legal "rights" affecting housing, education, the work place, medicine, the armed forces, adoption, religion, etc.
Again, this relates to anti-discrimination laws, not gay marriage.Here is a list of ways in which gay marriage can bring harm.
It can bring huge financial and emotional stress.
Homosexuals can sue people who are exercising their religious beliefs. For example, a heterosexual married couple with children who do not want to rent a room in their own family household to homosexuals could be sued for discrimination based on "sexual orientation." This can incur significant financial and emotional stress upon the family--not to mention the "prior restraint" effect of the fear of being sued which results in a family not renting out a room.
Furthermore, it can be applied to ANY anti-discrimination laws.
"African Americans can sue people who are exercising their religious beliefs. For example, a heterosexual married couple with children who do not want to rent a room in their own family household to African Americans could be sued for discrimination based on 'race'."
