- The first main group that is against Gay marriage are the Religious Groups. They do not consider Gay Marriage as a marriage. They see it as a big sin, a sin against Gods values and rules. In the Book of Genesis it says,” God created man in his image; in the Divine image he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed, saying; “Be fertile and multiply: fill the earth and subdue it “(Gen; 1; 28-29). Religious people fallow Gods Rules and because Gay Marriage has nothing common with the marriage between opposite sexes, they do not consider and accept it as a Marriage....

- Cann Chin Professor Griesmann English 1B 20 February 2013 Gay Marriage Since the dawn of time, homosexuality has naturally occurred along with the rest of the world, but to many people, attraction to the same gender is still considered an abnormality. Lifestyles, such as orientation, gender, or race are constantly berated with discrimination, especially in the past. In our current society, discrimination has withered to a bare minimum, but there will always be room for a new one to rise.

- The Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage. Yet, same-sex marriage continues to be a highly debated issue that leaves our society searching for answers. This has been very apparent during elections when politicians, in order to distract or sway conservative voters, all took a side and had an opinion on the issue of same-sex marriage. The debate has been presented on the left as a civil rights debate, equal rights. And on the right, as a morals debate, a referendum on homosexuality (Rauch, J....

- The Best Argument against Gay marriage: Glen Lavy’s “Gay marriage and the ‘slippery slope’ ” Proponents to the legalization of same sex marriage came up with a lot of reasons as why gay marriage should be legal. The major ones are that not allowing same sex people to get married prevents them from getting legal benefits like hospital visitation, health insurance, family leave and more. They also argued that they are fighting for their rights the same way African Americans were fighting back in the day, and that gay marriage will not threaten our society....

- Separate but Equal. The gay community is fighting a battle that seems all too familiar right now. Anti-gay marriage conservatives bare a striking resemblance to those who once believed interracial marriages would destroy the sanctity of marriage and children of those couples were victims of their interracial parents. The Love v. Virginia case in 1967 was a victory for interracial couples where the Supreme Court ruled that states could not pass state laws prohibiting race mixing. Today it seems absurd to think that before that case, people felt so strongly against two people joining in matrimony who were different from them, similar to the way many people feel about gay marriage....

- ... Those who are against same-sex marriages believe that homosexuals who are married have a negative effect on their children because they do not provide their children with a male and female figure to guide them.

There is a plethora of evidence supporting this claim including research that shows “youth incarceration risks in a national male cohort were elevated for adolescents in father-absent households” (Sprigg). This shows that fathers are a major contributor to the lives of their children.... [tags: Same-sex marriage, Homosexuality, Marriage]

- In the state of Massachusetts, same sex marriage has been legal since 2004 and thousands of people have had the right to marry their partners. Although it was a long and difficult process, gay and lesbian couples no longer have to face marriage discrimination in Massachusetts due to their sexual orientation. However, many couples are still barred from this process through other individual state amendments. While it has been difficult to research the exact side effects of same sex marriage, a predominant result has arisen: “there seems to be no appreciable difference between children brought up in stable homosexual homes and those brought up in stable heterosexual ones” (Sullivan 239)....
