There is nothing wrong with the federal gay marriage ban. We all know homosexuality does not make any sense.
If we banned everything that did not make sense you would have to leave the country.

I'm glad to see at least ONE politician with the stones not to cave in to political correctness. Marriage should stay between a man and a woman, period. Don't like it, move.

Sure they have. You have failed to provide a legitimate reason to allow gay marriage because there are none. How is gay marriage a public good? Its not. Supposedly you are looking for a "good argument" against gay marriage wihout providing sufficient evidence why gay marriage should be allowed.

Umm, if you let them get married, they will be allowed to cover their spouse/significant other with medical coverage, and remove some of the drain on social services that provide health care to the uninsured. I don't agree with homosexuality on a personal level, but making up a bunch of laws based on one's religious beliefs is the same as Sharia Law.

The reason people left England and came to what is now the United States was to escape from English law being based solely on one religion.

How does 2 guys getting married affect you negatively? They aren't passing a law saying you have to have them over for dinner. You don't want to associate with them, and they don't want to associate with you.

Let people live their lives, much in the same way that you don't like the government interfering with your lifestyle, they don't want the government interfering in theirs.

I don't support a ban on gay marriage anymore then I would support a law outlawing eating pork by a Muslim base or making cows sacred by a Hindu base. Keep your religion out of my government and your government out of my religion.

And that information being taught in public school has absolutely nothing to do with gay marriage. You are putting up what is known as a straw-man, you scream and shout about anyone that doesn't live life exactly how you see fit.

Homosexuality has been occurring for a long time. Banning marriage is not going to "fix" or "cure" the gay. These laws that are being pushed are merely feel good laws, that do absolutely nothing but make a certain group of people feel powerful.

Once again, I don't support a ban on gay marriage anymore then I would support a law outlawing eating pork by a Muslim base or making cows sacred by a Hindu base. Keep your religion out of my government and your government out of my religion.

Oh, and take a look at Luke 6:37 and Matthew 7:1-2. Matthew 6:5-7 may also be of interest.

So you don't want people flaunting their way of life in your face, and pushing their beliefs on you. However, you have no problem pushing your beliefs on them, and tell them their way of life is wrong.

Let people live their life.

You oversimplify, my friend. I don't need the government, Hollywood, or local school boards telling me or those who oppose homosexual behavior how to treat gays. There is no logic to homosexuality and opposition to homosexual behavior is not about religion.

Silly and illogical argument.
Allowing gay couples to LEGALLY marry isn't going to change what is taught in schools one iota. The things you fear, like inclusion and anti-discrimination will be taught in schools regardless.
And requiring gay couples to remain without legal recognition isn't going to stop them from marrying, forming families, and sitting RIGHT NEXT TO YOU at the PTO meetings.
Your kids have gay friends, gay teachers, and there are gay perents helping out the the hot dog stand at the school festival, and going on field trips with YOUR kids.
Deal with it.
