Dear Aznmask
Could you please tell me why you pick to do the against gay marriage project?

Anyway, if you choose to write in this point of you,I would suggest that you should not emphasize on the child-rearing thing. Noone says that gays want to get married in order to have (adopt) children. Maybe they see marriage as a way to make their relationships more official.

However,if you insist to write about the stability for child-rearing,you should mention about the instability for child-rearing in many straight marriages as well.
A good family is a family with good and caring parents.These might be a dad and a mum,two dads or two mums.
What would be harder for a child? A reasonable gay father or a straight alcoholic and violent father? What i believe is that there are some other factors more important in a succesful marriage than the sex of the parents.

Hey, he can argue against gay marriage if he wants without having to justify why. I am pro such things but I accept that others will have other opinions.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
The reason one:Are the gay marriage suited for nature rules?If yes,I think the nature have been disppeared now.
Secondly: Child-rearing should have a good enviroment,the two guys can provide the normal environment to them?
Thirdly:The guy marriage is the backing of mankind,we have developing from a single cells to billions of complex one,this change contains the whole history of nature spirit,can we stop duplicating the generation?It is our responsibilities to do!
Problem:opposite someone's hobby is not very rational action to prohibite them marry.
Conclusion: Not prohibiting the marriage,but not supporting.
To make these points:
3. marriage is for stability for child-rearing.
4. marriage is for benefit of child-rearing.
5. marriage is for the benefit of child rearing.


You'll need to prove that:

a) Gay couples do want to raise children.
b) Gay couples are generally more unstable than straight couples.
c) Children will have a better upbringing in a home, rather than in a gay couple's household.
(Although an alternative to adoption is having a surrogate mother, I know that this is not just extremely awkward -- even by gay couple standards -- but also very uncommon.)

Note: the word 'better' in c) is very subjective. Do not mix it up with the word 'normal,' and do not fall into the trap of calling gayness abnormal.
no official gay aproval is need for gay marriage


I do not understand this point at all. What does it mean?

Is official heterosexual approval needed for heterosexual marriages? Are you saying that only marriages that have some sort of peer group official approval are valid? But where do any marriages have that?

Did you mean that they are not officially 'legal' and if so why offical 'gay approval?

"all men are created equal"

this statement is bull, 'cause gay couples do NOT have the right to marry, therfore are not equal.

if this statement, one of the most meaningful and proud statements made by america, is a lie, then what's to say everything else they say isn't a lie? either fix this and allow gay marriage, or we risk losing all of our integrity.

i think i pressed the wrong button and replied to the wrong thing. wups. sorry : )

Here's a good example of why my own country seems to be going down the tubes.
This is one of the most meaningful and proud statements made by America?! Wow. We are really going places.
(For those of you who are English-limited, that was sarcasm.)

It's not a lie, anon. A lie would imply that the speaker knows better. It's outright nonsense.
