You're out of luck because there aren't any, ban on gay marriage is based entirely on christian belief, just sad for you that you live in a nation where others attempt to force their religion upon you through legislation.

1) It's disgusting.

2) They can't have kids who can't grow up and contribute to the economy.

One point you could use is of the psychological aspect of it to where it's not so much love, but of a sick lust. Or how the person was around the opposite sex all his life and developed a desire for the same sex that the opposite sex shared. For example: A guy hangs around girls all his life, and he developed feminine habits, including liking boys. Basically just kill the entire debate by saying that homosexuality isn't even real, that it's all in the mind.

That's not exactly true. Religion isn't "forced" through the government. Now that the Dems hold the power, there won't be any religious influence at all. Dems are basically, not really anti-Christian, but there isn't much, if any, religious influence at all.

There are some things about taxes you could say. Gay marriage opens the door for all types of civil unions and tax breaks, a weak argument sure, but your not going to find much if you eliminate the religous aspect.

Also people that argue against it often go to the slippery slope, declining morals, etc... for instance if we start allowing allowing gay marriage people are going to want to marry animals next. Ridiculous thinking sure, but those are often the arguments that get used.

It goes against nature. It is meant to be a boy and a girl. And, gays don't contribute anything good to life. They are full of themselves, sovenistic, and overly emotional. And the government is taking a stand by banning it. If they change the marrage law to cater for gays, then soon people will want to marry people in their familys, or have 3 person marrages. The government is doing the right thing by holding their ground and keeping those f@gs from destroying society.

Excluding religion. F#@k that. The Bible says stick another man in his arse, and you can look forward to the afterlife, with a pitchfork being stuck in YOUR arse.

Not only is it gross but it's downright immoral. Think about the kids. What about the kids? I like that America has taken a stance saying that NO we don't want your immigrants wrecking our cars and then grabbing their sombreros and making like a leaf, and NO we will NOT let another man wed another man and accept it.

God bless America

Without the religious nonsense there is nothing that even pretends to hold weight, but you could always pull a Cartman and dig up dirt on the opposing side of the class to discredit them... lol

How so? If you give marrage to one party of people, do you think other partys won't want the same marrage rights? Marrage is meant to be boy and girl only.

i agree w/ your 1st two sentences since they are both unbiased facts. the rest of it spins off into homophobic ramble. i'm not gay and i'm not particularly fond of gays, but they are still human afterall and i will treat them as such.

gay couples can't reproduce naturally. looking at that in nature, it's just wrong for gays to be together in marriage. i also don't like seeing gays adopt kids and bring them up inside the gay lifestyle. kids deserve to know what is supposed to be natural and not be influenced otherwise.

There are gay animals so "unnatural" doesn't work - you should say that scientifically it does not promote the perpetuation of the species.... that's all there is to it

altho on a personal level I couldn't give a flying F@#!

I'm for gay marriage also...

But to play the devils advocate I'll say this

1) family....which would lead to people thinking gay couples should not also have the right to adopt or raise children. This would lead to taxes for famlies etc.

(I belive gay couples SHOULD have this right by the way.)


2) First read and learn number one.
