Gay marriage threat to our civilization

As a heterosexual male, married to a wonderful heterosexual female, I am totally against the so-called gay marriages consisting of two male partners or two female partners, seeking to have their unions sanctified by a radical change in the marriage laws. It is my belief, shared by so many others, that a marriage should be between one man and one woman.

I offer these suppositions for consideration. Let those parties of gay marriages think about this: Had their parents been in same-sex marriages, would these persons be of this world? How would the world survive if there were no children born thereafter? For those same-sex partners to be able to have children, it would thus violate many laws that now exist.

Therefore, let us remain as a wholesome society with the sanctity of marriage continuing only between one man and one woman. And this world will be able to continue on as it has done for centuries and hopefully for centuries to come, without causing an end to our civilization.
