Can Arguments Against Gay Marriage Be Persuasive?
"Catholic" Theologians Blast Bishops for Opposing Gay "Marriage"
One can agree with the argument against gay marriage because of ones religious beliefs. One can also agree that under the first amendment no one has the right to impose rules, beliefs or opinions on anyone solely because they believe it is a moral issue with the Bible. Not everyone has the same morals or values. The supports of gay marriage are not trying to fight the opponents, religious beliefs nor are they asking for acceptance into that religion.
'Severing Love From Diapers': The Other Case Against Gay Marriage
Gay marriage would undermine marriage because it is a legal and moral institution designed to promote and protect procreation and raising of children. Gay marriage would desecrate God's mandate that heterosexual couples have to mate and procreate. Is any of this true, and if so, does it matter?

For a long time, homosexuality seemed weird or gross.
