Should Gay Marriages Be Legal ?

I Hate Fags.

Being a Hindu, Gay Marriage is a totally out of the world concept for me. Maybe its just the way I was brought up. But keeping my personal beliefs aside, I think that every human being has a right to choose his or her sexual orientation and that no one in this world has the authority to deny them this right. I feel that we are turning into a society of barbarians where we beat or even kill people for being Gay. Thousands of hate crimes directed towards Gay people take place everyday, around the world. This is the main reason why so many people are afraid to come out of the closets.

Ask just about anyone, they'll all tell you they're in favor of equal rights for homosexuals. Just name the situation, and ask. They'll all say, YES, gays should have the same rights in housing, jobs, public accommodations, and should have equal access to government benefits, equal protection of the law, etc…But when it comes to gay marriage, all the talk about equality stops dead cold.
Nearly seventy percent of people in the U.S. oppose gay marriage, almost the same proportion as are otherwise supportive of gay rights. This means that many of the same people who are even passionately in favor of gay rights oppose gays on this one issue.

It's because there is a lot of misunderstanding about what homosexuality really is, as well as the erroneous assumption that gay people enjoy the same civil rights protections as everyone else. There are also a lot of stereotypes about gay relationships, and even a great deal of misunderstanding of what marriage itself is all about.

Some of The Main Arguments Against Gay Marriage Are:
1.      Marriage is an institution between one man and one woman.
2.      Marriage is for procreation.
3.      Same-sex couples aren't the optimum environment in which to raise children.
4.      Gay relationships are immoral and violate the sacred institution of marriage.
5.      Marriages are for ensuring the continuation of the species.
6.      Same-sex marriage would threaten the institution of marriage.
7.      Marriage is traditionally a heterosexual institution.
8.      Same-sex marriage would take us down a slippery slope towards legalized incest, bestial marriage, polygamy and all manner of other horrible consequences.
9.      If gay marriage is legalized, homosexuality would be promoted in the public schools.

I can literally go on and on with the list of arguments against Gay Marriages.

I think its time for us to grow up and understand that in a democratic society, every citizen has a right to choose his or her sexual orientation.

I think its time for us to grow up and understand that in a democratic society, every citizen has a right to choose his or her lifestyle, be it Gay or Straight. And the same applies to marriage.

I am curious to know what the fate of Gay Marriages will be. Because this is one event that will transcend our civilization to the next level.
