One day, Tom, a six-year-old from San Francisco came home from school feeling
isolated. It’s bad enough that he had no mother to confide in, he had to live
with that thought all his life. Tom was so ostracized, shattered, and disturbed
that he slashed his wrists. Tom’s life had changed when his father became gay
and started living with a man. Tom could not take the shame.
At school he was
picked on, made fun of, and rejected. This is one example of the effects of gay
marriage. Over time, may states have been under a lot of pressure over the issue
of gay marriage licensees. Should we allow same-sex marriages? Definitely not,
based on the morals of our country, I believe we should not allow gay marriages.
We should not permit gay marriages because a gay marriage goes against all
traditional ethics that this country is trying to preserve. America, is an
America is also a culturally influential to other countries as
well. During the past two decades, traditional morality has gradually increased.
One of the most important institutions of our traditional ethics, is marriage. (Raunch)
Marriage may be the single most important joint institution that the American
people have. It is the basis of the future. Recently, the pressure on a judge in
Hawaii who gave permission to marry a gay couple is slowly trying to increase.
(Ego Judge) Judge Chang has changed the whole purpose of marriage. This may not
be such a bad idea one will just say, “As long as it does not affect
me.” However, If Hawaii recognizes this law, it may become the law of the
land. This is all due to the full faith and credit law. (Snow) This law simply
means that if one state passes or submits a law, other states must completely
follow this leading state. (American Government and Politics Today) That would
not be idealistic since a recent poll showed ninety percent of Americans oppose
(Gallup poll) Gay marriages should not be allowed because it is
unconstitutional. The forefathers of the land wrote the constitution on a solid
religious background. Making gay marriages legal would change most
constitutional laws. Just as the traditional families would have to get
insurance, so would a gay marriage couple. Therefore, insurance companies would
have to change their laws. Children would have to be taught about the illegal
marriages as part of their education.
That would, in turn, force the state to
review the current education laws and what children are learning. Allowing gay
marriages would also remove the Equal Rights Amendment since there would be
sexual barriers. (Knight) Allowing gay marriages would eventually end centuries
of tradition for American people that were built on Christian and moral values.
(Arkes) It would change the entire would we live in. Churches would have to
adopt the idea that surpasses all of God’s laws. (Commonweal) Gay marriages
would be against the constitution that was and is built on a biblical background
and future for the nation.
Of course, gay persons claim to be the peaceful,
non-violent, loving kind.(Chumbley) However, if society should accept them, then
inevitably that serenity they have would disappear because they would reveal who
they truly are. I think if we allow this ridiculous procedure to take place, we
would have a future full of artificial insemination, which is not natural. We
should not allow same-sex marriage because one of the fundamental purposes of
marriage is procreation or production of children. (Socarides) If we allow gay
marriages it would weaken our race and bring about a lot of other issues like
cloning. A child should be born out of the conjugal love of two parents: a man
and a woman, not one of the same.
Personally, I fell that gay people are not
parents. They are partners with affection for each other. An affection that is
not built on a communion, but sexual desire. Children are a vital part of our
future and we need to let the natural balance of nature keep its stability. (Burman)
There would be a lot of cultures created and that in turn would create more
racism. We need to maintain the way human bare children because it is the
One of the most important reasons why we should not allow gay
marriages is the possibility of gay couples adopting children. As in the case
Tony, this is a good example of how children can be psychologically affected. In
turn, a child can become gay .
