We always need to remember this is not just about 'gay marriage' but part of an 'open season' on Christians and their beliefs. This proposal must be stopped because it opens the door for even greater abomination.

Simply, it's abnormal. It is like trying to eat food through one's nose! God made marriage and not man; God set the standard and not man. The Bible shows us continually what happens to those who promote and indulge the sin of homosexuality. Why do people want to rebel against God? That's what sin causes people to do. The only cure is Jesus Christ. The clueless corporate entities that sign on to this sinfulness are doing themselves a horrible disservice. They're stores will suffer from the loss of the business of decent Americans.

Myth 1 - It will promote marriage

This is like saying if we all just printed money in our basements/garages, the economy would be strengthened.

The first myth of “gay marriage” is that it exists.

It doesn’t exist any more than calling a dog’s tail a “leg” will lead to an explosion in the population of five-legged dogs.

... but the law has never fundamentally altered the essential nature of marriage: a lifelong commitment between one man and one woman.

There have been variations on this concept occasionally over the millenia, but one thing has never changed - all marriages have included at least one man and at least one woman.

"Gay marriages" are outside that pattern.

Myth #1 is utterly rediculous. It takes genuine maturity, responsibility, and commitment to make marriage actually work, i.e. to go ahead and actually bother despite the price tag assigned to being married. Seeing the declining attitude that people seem to have toward actually growing up and getting a life, it’s rediculous that something as simple as a few people having what they deem to be marriage would have much, if any, effect on the maturity of the populace, which has declined, and has little incentive to actually rise, given the decay of the general economy, decline of religion, and the rise of the welfare state.

this is about legalizing immorality and bad health. There is no way that the human body was intended for the activities the adherents of homosexual “marriage” practice.

The goal is the criminalization of Christianity to the point where government force can be used against those expressing or holding Christian beliefs.

The homogenda is the main vehicle towards this goal today.

Myth 5 - It won’t be a slippery slope It truly is a slippery slope! Remember when Canada started legalizing "gay marriage"? The homosexual lobbyists started pushing for polygamy & lowering the age of consent (which is basically pedophilia) right afterwards. We aren't the first civilization to embrace sodomy, hopefully we are the last

>It is like trying to eat food through one’s nose!<

Worse actually, and while the contrary nature of homosexual activity is not restricted to the physical, for God made man and women uniquely compatible and complementary (even in a symbiotic ways) in more ways than physical, yet putting your gas pump into the exhaust pipe of another is neither right nor healthy, no matter how much you love your car and like the perverse thrill you get from the smoke,

Freedom not Sodom!

There’s freedom in America, the land of the red white and blue;

but there still must be laws, things you just can’t do.

You can’t marry your sister, your brother, or the family pet;

a sheep, or a goat - at least not yet!

That how is it with homosexuality, what the Bible calls sodomy;

men lying with men as with women, is perversity!

That they’re not designed that way, tis easy to perceive,

but yielding to sinful desires, man is soon deceived.

A moral wrong is not a civil right; like the sin itself, that’s confusion;

calling evil good and exchanging light for darkness, is sure delusion!

History tells us where this will lead, from societies now in dust,

When a nation casts off the laws of God, and follows it’s own lusts.

Promoting a sin which sends one to Hell from an early grave,

dishonors God and robs man of the Life He gave.

There’s but one answer: the Risen Jesus gave Himself for our sins;

Repent and believe, then truly follow Him!

Just say this, its this simple: Marriage between one man and one woman is a REAL marriage. Any other form of “marriage” by definition not a REAL marriage.

Stop giving the fascistic politicians nor the idiot leftist the pleasure of accounting their terms. Simply tell them that what they are trying to call marriage is not a real marriage and there is nothing anyone or anything can do about that.

This will likely pissed them off but that is precisely the point, when they prove to the world that they can’t live with just the State’s lying that they have to force other people to acknowledged that lie their position will be weakened.

Most importantly of all this is about preserving in our mind, hearts, and couture the concept of what a real Marriage is, and therefore a notion of its propose.
