Why no homosexual 'marriage?'
1. It is a cruel lie with no real basis in homosexual life. No significant percent of homosexuals have 'married' in any country that allows it.
2. Americans overwhelmingly oppose it. A growing majority of states have gone to the extreme step of enacting constitutional amendments to prevent rogue judges from forcing it into law.
3. No homosexual relationship shares the reasons for government involvement in real marriage. In some states, government didn't even register marriage until the latter part of the 19th Century, and then it was largely because divorce rates were rising economically and legally inferior women were left with their children for the state to support. Despite the fact that much has changed for women, they still remain on average paid much less than men and still are often left with children to support when a marriage ends.
4. No homosexual relationship produced children as a natural an usual result. When children are present in a homosexual relationship they are usually the result of a prior relationship. Even real marriage would not make pre-existing children the child of a new partner. In rare cases when courts allow adoption of a child by a homosexual 'couple', that relationship is specifically dictated by the court. A court may also allow dual parenting of an inseminated child if it deems it appropriate.
5. Most adults still marry and enter into a traditional marriage relationship. US Census data confirms that few same sex adults live in any sort of domestic partnership, much less a homosexual one. Data presented by Topix confirms that most homosexual 'marriages' are not even exclusive relationship, much less like a real marriage. One of the reasons that homosexual 'marriage' has failed to attract a significant percent of the homosexual population where legal is that it is extremely unwise for a homosexual 'couple' to get entangled in a huge body of law generated for very different relationships.
6. The traditional family remains the basic building block of American Society, so government has a legitimate interest is supporting it. It has no legitimate interest in being involved in any legal homosexual relationship.
7. As demonstrated with statistics from numerous countries and un-refuted by any poster in these fora, this all has precious little to do with anyone 'marrying.' The homosexual 'marriage' movement was concocted as a way of attacking the common morals of Americans in order to force acceptance of a lifestyle choice that most find damaging and immoral. The homosexual marriage movement has in fact done the opposite, generating increased hostility toward homosexuals, as a result of anti-democratic attacks on voters rights to dictate the legal definition of marriage.
8. Radical homosexuals have no more right to undemocratically force their philosophy of homosexual 'marriage' into law that Seventh Day Adventists would have a right to have their beliefs declared our national religion.

Oh hell, they're still wet behind the ears and I'd guess most of these students aren't Nebraska residents. Just say no!
