    No, it's really hurting no one. Your marriage isn't invalidated because a same sex couple got married. Besides, no one is saying you have to approve of the marriages. We're just saying that the state shouldn't discriminate.

    Really, as far as you believe that is the case.

    Nope, it's true. Can you demonstrate some physical/financial (financial harm not also caused by more heterosexual couples getting married) harm done to your marriage should SSM be legal everywhere? Moral harm doesn't count, since your argument amounts to "I don't like it." unless you can show some harm to yourself.

    It's for the sake of my kid, and anyone else's for that matter. If I want my son to attend the local public school, then I want him to attend it knowing that some radical is not feeding him information about homosexuality that conflicts with what we're teaching him at home.

    It sounds like you're trying to use a slippery slope argument. Sure, they'll likely learn that it's legal, but that would just be a fact. Are you afraid your kid is going to all of a sudden want to marry someone of the same sex?

    That's what home schooling is for. Then those same home-schooled kids can grow up and torture us on this debate form with their proud and endless use of logical fallacies.

    Are you so unsure of your conviction that you don't feel it will stand up to comparison with the views of others? Shouldn't the right answer be identifiable and prove itself correct on its own merits? Why are you afraid to allow your child to learn opposing views and critically examine them?
    Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.

    Yes I'm unsure, especially for younger kids. I want the first 14 or 15 years to arm my kids with the truth. Leave the proof and critical analysis to Senior High School or even College. Are you so sure of your views that you want a crack at young, impressionable minds?

    There's not harm in them learning that something is legal.
