"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
I am against legalizing gay marriage. It violates natural law. Marriage is not just any relationship between human beings. It is a relationship rooted in human nature and thus governed by natural law. It Always Denies a Child Either a Father or a Mother. It is in the child’s best interests that he be raised under the influence of his natural father and mother. This rule is confirmed by the evident difficulties faced by the many children who are orphans or are raised by a single parent, a relative, or a foster parent.
Yes, it is ideal to have children raised by their two parents in a stable, loving, high-income, well-educated family living in a low-crime area with good schools. Because of this, we should ban all adoption, right?
One of you will end up here next!
Other people making voluntary contracts with each other has absolutely no effect on your life in any way, shape or form. We don't live under shariah law, we live in a republic where all citizens are supposed to be equal in the eyes of the law.
"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
