Bogus Arguments Against Gay Marriage
Religious bigots oppose marriage equality ostensibly on because gay couples cannot have children. This argument is fallacious on many grounds:
~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
- Many mixed sex couples never have children and never intend to have children. This does not invalidate their marriages.
- Mixed sex couples where the woman is past menopause can marry. They will never have children.
- Women who have had their tubes tied or men with vasectomies can marry. They will never have children.
- Women or men using birth control can marry. They will likely never have children.
- Women or men carrying genetic diseases can marry. They will likely avoid having children.
- Gay people sometimes have children from prior mixed marriages.
- Gay people can adopt.
- Gay people can use surrogate parents male or female.
