10 reasons why gay marriage is forbidden

1) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things
like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that
hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy
behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal
standing and can sign a marriage contract.

4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all;

women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is
still illegal.

5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed;
the sanctity of Britany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be
destroyed.

6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples,

infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our

orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents
only raise straight children.

8. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the

values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have
only one religion in America.

9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at
home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise
children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt
to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the
service-sector economy, or longer life spans.
