A piece at Mercator Net: What is so special about marriage between a man and a woman?
Questions and answers on the topics raised in defense of same-sex marriage.
What is marriage?
Why does marriage have to be about the ability to have children? Older couples and infertile couples have always been allowed to marry.
But surely marriage is more about two people in love than what kind of sex they have. Why is procreative sex special?
Isn’t the right to marry a basic human right?
But what about human dignity? Homosexual people can never feel that they are fully accepted and worthy of love if they are not allowed to marry their same-sex partner.
Aren’t you condemning homosexuals to a life of loneliness and misery?
Why will allowing homosexual marriage weaken the institution of marriage as a whole? Two men getting married won’t threaten me or my marriage.
But marriage has not always been defined as the union of one man and one woman. How do you explain polygamy?
