Oh wait, that’s fucking retarded. If I suggested that in reality rather than as a sarcastic point then I would need to have my head examined. Bryan Fischer’s actual claim is similar. That belief in the Abrahamic God under the name of Allah prevents you from taking any oath, THUS setting a horrific precedence to make muslims unfit for any public office. By that logic any contract because “fuck it they are dirty camel fuckers”. This is so fucking backwards that it belongs in the rulebook of the Nazi Party and not on any person who you would allow to speak with any authority. But politicians in the USA regularly listen to Mr. Fischer’s hate speech completely forgetting that this sets a dangerous precedent.
Marriage is not a privacy issue. Civil marriage is a public institution. Homosexual activists once demanded that the government stay out of their bedrooms. In attempting to legalize same-sex marriage, they are now inviting the government into their bedrooms.
Homosexual marriage is not an issue of individual rights. Every American has a right to marry, but also faces restrictions upon whom they may marry. No one is permitted to marry a child, a close blood relative, a person who is already married, or, in most states, a person of the same sex. These are not restrictions upon the right to marry; they are part of the definition of marriage.
Freedom of conscience and religious liberty would be threatened. In the wake of same-sex marriage, we have already seen religious nonprofits being told to compromise their principles or go out of business.
Economic freedom would be undermined. Same-sex marriage would compel every employer, including the government, to give same-sex couples benefits identical to those of heterosexual couples.
The rights of children would be undermined. Children have a natural right to be raised by the mother and father whose union produced them. Research shows that children who are raised by their own mother and father are happier, healthier and more prosperous than children raised in other family structures. The state should not affirm the deliberate creation of permanently motherless or fatherless homes.
The breakdown of the traditional family leads inevitably to expansion of government. The best bulwark against a large centralized government is the existence of mediating social institutions which allow society to govern itself. Chief among these is the natural family, consisting of husband, wife and their own children. People living in this family structure are the least likely to become burdens upon society through dependency on government social programs or through crime and incarceration.
