C4M – Ten Reasons – Number Six
Hereâ€™sÂ Reason number 6Â to oppose gay marriage according to the Coalition for Marriage.
This slur is meant to shut down debateÂ and stop people thinking for themselves.Â Nick Clegg landed in hot water over aÂ draft speech which called opponentsÂ of redefining marriage â€œbigotsâ€. HeÂ later retracted the word, but thereâ€™s no doubt that many who support this radicalÂ agenda think anyone who disagrees is notÂ worthy of respect. However, support forÂ traditional marriage has come from manyÂ respected academics, lawyers, politiciansÂ of all parties, and religious leaders. TheyÂ all know that redefining marriage wouldÂ have a profound impact.
What do we think? Are opponents just bigoted? Is there a substantive argument to be made against gay marriage that doesnâ€™t just come out of a revulsion of homosexuality?
