house Bill H. Joint Res. 32

Should The Constitution Be Amended To Only Recognize Heterosexual Marriages?

Argument in favor

States need to have the right to decide which marriages they choose to recognize, and consequently, give benefits to.

Homosexual "marriages" are not the same. To say it's unnatural for two men or two women to raise children isn't bigotry. It's biology.

There is no "civil right" to gay marriage. You expand the term "civil right" to everything, every person, every aspect of our lives, except, of course, to Christians, white males, and thinking people. "Civil rights" is a term that has become trite and, through your left-wing politically-based overuse, ignored. Where is MY "civil right" to practice MY religion on MY property and in MY business? Mine is guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution. You have heard of the U.S. Constitution, haven't you? Is it a vague term lurking somewhere in your foggy memory? You might read it and its history. A little bit of info for you: the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land! It's purpose is to limit the power of federal government.

If that's what it takes to do what's right, then yes: change the constitution to prohibit marriage to a person of the same gender. And while at it, specify that a man cannot marry an under age child, nor a near relative, nor any woman who is already married, nor can he if he is already married, nor can he marry any other than a human being. It seems common sense, but the way things are changing it won't be long before such specifics are necessary. We all have the right to marry a person of the opposite sex, who is of age to consent, who is not a near relative, who is not already married, if we are not already married. The LGBT have the same rights already.

Argument opposed

It’s the 21st century people; this bill aims to deny the LGBT community their civil rights that have already been granted in many U.S. states.

I directed the county clerk to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, the first place in America to do that. Why? Because it was the right thing to do and because the fight for equality requires bold action.

If this passed, it would be the first amendment to the constitution that restricts the rights of citizens. It's wrong

    How ridiculous would it be, as a nation, to have a Constitution that claims to protect the rights of all, but implicitly deny the rights of many?

    Who ever wrote this bill should not be allowed to get married. Same with their supporters for being ignorant and cruel.

    Love is genderless and favors neither ethnical background nor religion. It has no boundaries, so we should not make attempts to limit it. Accepting this officiates one's belief that a person cannot control another's feelings and thoughts, a basic human right denominated by common sense. Banning any kind of marriage outside of heterosexuality would be a monopoly of beliefs, owned by religious individuals who view non-traditional habits as taboo. They feel the need to control the lives of others, even though the other forms of affection have no impact on their lives. By allowing its people the official freedom to follow their hearts, America secures its reputation as a country who cares for its habitant's inherent rights.

    Because SCOTUS. And get over it already. Go be crazy and stupid-hateful about some other topic. Your religion does not rule us all. And thankfully we have laws protecting us from that ever happening. SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE.

    If homosexual couples want a union let them find a term that only they can have and heterosexual couples can not have. But keep marriage sacred to the male and female union.

    Marriage is between a man and a woman. That is how children are brought into this world and that is the best way to raise them. Children in gay families are oftern miserable due to lacking a parent of the opposite sex. When don't need to sacrifice the next generation just because gay men and women want to play house.

    It should be amended to set marriages on a two-track system. One would be religious, and the other would be legal. Churches could do what they want, and any two people could form a civil union. Gay people should be able to get marriage benefits, or any two people for that matter, but churches should be able to maintain religion.
