Transcript of Persuasive Speech: Marriage Equality

The Greatest Social Crisis of Our Generation Marriage Equality "Ruins the Sanctity
of Marriage!" "Adam and Eve!" Many argue that procreation is what marriage and
such was intended for. If two people can't create
another human then they shouldn't get married. "The tax payers will have to
spend so much more money to Why should tax payers have to spend an excess amount of money to provide social security to a couple that they find to be
living in sin? That's their hard-earned money. With this logic though, what would happen to those
heterosexual couples that can't have kids? Are you
not going to allow a man and a woman to get
married because a woman is 'barren' or the
man's sperm count isn't high enough? Also, with the population at about 7 billion people, is procreation really needed? There are over 100,000 children in the US alone waiting to be adopted. Allowing gay marriage to be legalized would make it easier for them to adopt children and begin their own family. It is argued that homosexual marriages would ruin the sanctity of marriage because God deemed that marriage is between a man
and a woman. You can't mess with God' word. Church and state are separated for a reason. Not everyone holds the
same religious views as another and trying to involve that in the
government would lead to chaos. Just because a viewpoint is
widely accepted among a group doesn't mean it should be law.
Above that, discriminating people based on their gender, race,
or sexual orientation is unconstitutional. No one is
above the constitution. Added bonus: When Massachusettes legalized gay marriage in 2004 the divorce rates from 2003 to 2008 went down by 21%. Whereas Alaska, where they changed their constitution to ban gay marriage in 1998, saw an increase in divorce rates by 17.2% between 2003 and 2008 provide social security and other benefits
to married gay couples." Tax payers are also paying the government that supplies welfare to various addicts. Druggies are living in 'sin' as well, why are we
persecuting those who love people of the same sex? Gay
couples should be able to receive money when their partner
dies. Besides, revenue from the legal marriages
would more than make up for the cost
of benefits. . In Conclusion Church and state should ultimately be separated
Procreation is not necessary at this time
Legalizing gay marriage will not effect your tax money any more than welfare. At the end of the day it shouldn't matter who you love as long as you love them. (pathos) (logos) (ethos)
