Opposition of gay demands for marriage is a Republican political attack against gay people.
Truth: There are numerous lawmakers from both political parties who have taken a strong stand against homosexual marriage. In Michigan, Democrat Triette Reeves and in Ohio Republican Ken Blackwell, both African Americans have strongly supported constitutional amendments limiting marriage to one man and one woman. Black lawmakers in Maryland, Louisana, and Georgia have also openly supported banning same sex marriage.
Gay marriage will hurt no one.
Truth: Acceptance and legalization of homosexual marriage removes the only barrier to marriage between any variance of sexual choices. It will hurt children because pedophiles and polygamists will claim their “rights” under these same false objections. Yes, the splippery slope argument is real.

There’s nothing wrong with two same sex people wanting to commit their lives to one another.
Truth: Theorectically, its not. But in reality, its dangerous. Many reports(pdf) have proven that homosexuals are at high risks in every category of emotional instability, suicidal tendencies, violence, disease, and even death. Why would anyone want to encourage or support, let alone codify into law, relationships that are setups for failure? With high incidences of breast cancer among lesbians and AIDS among homosexual men, we should never accept that homosexuality is anything less than dangerous, destructive and deceptive. What's more, our fundamental morals and simple conscience tell us that two individuals of the same gender were never intended nor encouraged by the Creator to engage in sexual relations.
Gay marriages are civil and won't affect churches or religious organizations in any way.
Truth: Homosexual activists have already sued, threatened, harassed and intimidated churches and religious groups in numerous areas for so called “discrimination.”
The Bible does not condemn consensual, homosexual sex only rape and violent sex.
Truth: The Bible, in very clear terminology, condemns all forms of sexual activity outside of the marriage covenant. Not only does the Bible condemn such practices, but so does every other major religion practiced by human beings.
Homosexual couples should have the same rights as married heterosexual couples.
Truth: They already do. Every gay American has the same rights under the US Constitution as any other American. However, homosexuals are demanding that laws be created simply to accommodate their choice of sexual behavior.
Opponents of gay marriage are "enshrining discrimination" into the Constitution.
Truth: The gay movement's perception of anyone and anything which doesn't line up with its contrived orthodoxy is immediately and unquestionably branded "discrimination." By definition, discrimination is not always as evil as it is forced to be. To be truthful, we all discriminate everyday. Discrimination is simply another word for choice. Perhaps gays should take lessons from the "prochoice" lobby. Americans who understand the necessity of preserving the standard of marriage are not enshrining discrimination, they are maintaining what is right for the common good for all citizens.
Denying marriage rights to homosexuals is the same as denying rights of interracial couples.
Truth: Loving vs Virginia 1967 Supreme Court decision stated: "Marriage is one of the basic civil rights of man, fundamental to our very existence and survival. Skinner v. Oklahoma, 316 U.S. 535, 541 (1942). See also Maynard v. Hill, 125 U.S. 190 (1888). To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discriminations. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State."
The court made the undeniable point that marriage, when it is practiced in its intended form (male-female), literally ensures the existence and survival of the human race. The court opines that this is a fundamental purpose of marriage. And for good reason. This is common sense logic. Homosexuals cannot in any possible way, compliment or enhance this powerful dynamic.
Gay marriage would finally mean full equality for gays and lesbians.
Truth: The homosexual movement has become consumed not with simply gaining equality, but seem intent on forcing every person, institution and organization opposed to their agenda to pay a heavy price. This vengeful obsession has become the calling card of one of the most manipulative human campaigns in our nation's history.
African Americans should support gay marriage because they "understand" discrimination.
Truth: African Americans have demonstrated over and over that they do not support discrimination. However, gay marriage is not an issue of discrimination as much as it is a issue of attempted sexual legitimacy which the public does not embrace and perhaps never will.
Julian Bond: "Like race, our sexuality isn't a preference - it is immutable, unchangeable, and the Constitution protects us all against prejudices and discrimination based on immutable differences."Wrong Bond. Sexual activity is not immutable, but fluid. Anything immutable cannot be changed nor does there exist the possibility of change. Therefore, comparisons between the color of one's skin and the sexual conduct of homosexuals are not valid and frankly a low-ended denigration of the awful stuggles of black people in America. Homosexuals have asserted that they cannot change therefore, they are to be protected as a "minority". That would be a true statement, except there are thousands of exhomosexuals (exgays) who are proof that sexuality and the expression of it is a choice, therefore denying marriage to homosexuals does not amount to discrimination.
