While my father-in-law is not against gay or lesbian relationships, he is against gay marriage. Speaking to him about it really opened my mind to different viewpoints. He sees marriage as an agreement made among a man, a woman, and society as a means of social control and continuing the human species. So maybe its our definition of marriage that needs to change. It is generally a religious covenant, and perhaps archaic in this day and age.
What do we stand to gain from maintaining marriage as only possible between a man and a woman? But more importantly, what are we prepared to lose? I don’t think that my generation should allow this dictation of our future, because we will have to live with the decisions that you make. So I urge you to consider of all of your constituents, not just the ones who are lining your pockets.
