What is wrong with same sex marriage? Nothing! (Part 1)
Opponents of same sex marriage put forward varying reasons for their lack of support. I plan to discuss these reasons and why they are absurd.
STATEMENT: Same sex marriage is against God's will aka religion.
RESPONSE: God and religion do not have a monopoly on marriage.
I am an atheist and I am married. I do not believe in God and I hold no religious beliefs, yet I am married. My marriage was conducted by a non-religious celebrant and was acknowledged by the state/country not the church. God and religion play no part in my marriage.
When did a religious group last protest the marriage of an atheist couple?
I reject God's will and religion in regards to same sex marriage due to this obvious inconsistency. Consistency would mean no-one outside of your religion can get married and that is absurd.
When people cite God's will as a reason to oppose marriage I feel it is more about the participants being homosexual than the actual marriage. An individuals sexual orientation has nothing to do with marriage.
