Transcript of Same-Sex Marriage

Same-Sex Marriage Liberal vs. Conservative States Against Conservative Liberal There are 41 States that forbid same-sex marriage. Adults Thoughts If so many people start to think Gay marriage is okay, it will wipe out Christianity. Raising Kids in a Same-Sex Marriage children of lesbian parents identified themselves as gay 31 percent of the time; children of gay men had gay children 19 percent of the time, and children of a lesbian mother and gay father had at least one gay child 25 percent of the time.

A new study that finds children of a gay or lesbian parent may be more likely to have social and emotional problems.

69 percent of children of lesbian mothers reported that their family received public assistance, such as welfare, at some point. 26 percent say they were employed full-time.

17 percent intact biological families get assistance and about half of children of an intact biological family said they were employed full-time. Overview States For Massachusetts had the lowest divorce rate in the country in 2008. Its divorce rate declined 21% between 2003 and 2008 Requiring citizens to sanction same-sex relationships violates moral and religious beliefs of millions of religions who believe marriage is the union of one man and one woman. Marriage is the union of one man and one woman. This does not include gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. Opposes same-sex marriage.

Support Defense of Marriage Act passed in 1996, which affirms the right of states not to recognize same-sex marriages licensed in other states. Overview All individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation, have the right to marry.
Prohibiting same-sex citizens from marrying denies them their civil rights. Marriage is the union of people who love each other. It should be legal for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals, to ensure equal rights for all. Support same-sex marriage.
Opposed to the creation of a constitutional amendment establishing marriage as the union of one man and one woman. http://douthat.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/06/11/gay-parents-and-the-marriage-debate/ Sources http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504763_162-57451777-10391704/kids-of-gay-parents-fare-worse-study-finds-but-draws-fire-from-experts/ Fourteen percent of kids of a lesbian mom spent time in foster care at some point, compared with 2 percent of the rest of the children studied. Raising Kids in a Same-Sex Marriage The idea that children do worse when raised by gay parents appears to be based on the assumption that there's something inherently wrong with homosexuality. Gay couples will adopt children in need, whereas a traditional couple will have their own children, and have less need for adoption agencies. Gay couples' children tend to be more accepting of "weird" or non-traditional people. A recent study showed compared 100 non-traditional families' children with 100 traditional. More people preferred the non-traditional child over the traditional because of attitude. Children come confused when confronted with the idea of Gay marriage. They want to bring the issue into my life and take away my freedom. Don't want public schools teaching their children that gay marriage is okay. Need for banning gays from adopting from certain agencies such as Catholic adoption centers. Schools should deny students to elect guys prom queen and prevent girls from being elected prom king. If man can marry man, then polygamy must be legal too. Gay marriage is not natural, God made man and woman to be together and reproduce. Adults Thoughts The conservatives who are against gay marriage have never presented much of an argument. If a man wants to marry another man, that will not effect anybody else besides the two men getting married. http://www.whataretheywaitingfor.com/liberal-politics.html The meaning of marriage means that two people are committed to one an other and are in love. If two people can get a divorce, and it is legal to fall out of love with someone, it should be legal for two men to get married. Constitutionally, it is legal because everyone has a right due to Process and Equal Protection Clauses of the 14Th Amendment Voters get to decide whether their state should legalize same-sex marriage. http://www.usnews.com/debate-club/will-obamas-support-of-gay-marriage-help-him-politically/state-by-state-americans-dont-want-gay-marriage 32 States overall have voted to preserve traditional marriage. Our government was firmly based on the foundation of God. There are more conservative states than liberal states. 62 Percent of people in the US believe marriage is between a man and a woman. The Iowa law states that we need to protect freedom and equality for all people. Freedom to Marry’s goal is to end the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage once and for all. Freedom to Marry is located in 6 states. Freedom to Marry is the campaign to win marriage nationwide. http://www.freedomtomarry.org/
