If marriage is solely a 'religious union' with a primary responsiblity to procreate, it makes perfect sense to ban atheists and couples who can't conceive from getting married.  Right?


ETA -- for those who don't get my point.....

For people who are against gay marriage there are two common arguments they give...

1) it is a religious union and against the bible

2) only a man and woman can procreate....a primary function of marriage


So, based on those two reasons, it LOGICALLY follows that they should ALSO believe athiests and couples who can't conceive should be banned from marriage as well.

I'm curious what anti-gay marriage individuals have to say about that conclusion....

If same-sex couples can't marry, then I say yes.

Quoting Michaelsmom0522:

Wrong.


What's wrong about it?  There are people who firmly believe that marriage is a 'religious union'.....and who also believe a big reason it should be only a man and woman is to promote procreation.....

For THOSE PEOPLE, who believe that (not me)......it would make perfect sense then to ban atheists or non-religious couples....and infertile and older couples from getting married.

If those are the reasons they give to ban gay marriage.....logically, those other marriages should be banned as well.


(this is not my belief.....but, after listening to arguments opposers of gay marriage have given...this is a conclusion one can come to)

Like you said, PRIMARY responsibility. Not the ONLY, there are other reasons for marriage, even God mentions them. So stop twisting it all around.

Sorry, NO.  Everyone who is ready and willing to make the commitment to each other should be able to marry.  I was unable to concieve, but refused to live with him.  He proposed to make sure I didn't get away (his words, not mine).  Marriage is a completion of the circle.  It should not be reserved only for fertile, Christian couples.
