Gay Marriage in the US This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By Dan G., Arvada, CO

     As you may know, gay marriage is one of the most controversial subjects today. I happen to disagree with gay marriage and here's why. I've seen gay people, on TV and in real life, and I have no problem with them but I don't like the idea of them getting married. Take for example last year at Disneyland when there was a gay activist party. Guys were kissing and performing sexual acts in public, not even caring who saw them. If I were a parent, I wouldn't want my kids exposed to things like that. This is a family theme park and to expose the public to their personal life is wrong.

Also, gay marriage is unconstitutional. America was built on the Constitution. I wonder what our founding fathers would say about gay marriage. Gay marriage is also against most religions and isn't same-sex marriage against God's plan? I also think that the towns that married gays should have the book thrown at them.

By saying that you don't like the idea of kids being exposed to personal lives, you are also saying that you don't like the idea of a heterosexual couple kissing in public. I am pretty sure that doesn't bother you. Also you mentioned what our founding fathers would say. They would disagree with many ideas that are considered normal today. They feared diversity in a way. Look at the US now. An idea in the beginning is always considered weird or wrong at first. In other words, I disagree with you.

I have to say that I disagree with you, but I am curious why it matters to you who a person chooses to love and marry. You say in your first paragraph that gays should not expose the public to their PERSONAL LIVES, so where do you draw the line between a personal decision and a governmental decision?

The Bible also says that eating pork and shellfish is a sin, and that you can be stoned to death for wearing clothes woven from two different types of thread. Please stop twisting the words of the Lord to fit your own purposes. Many things in the Bible are no longer relevant. You know what is? The main messages of the Bible - Jesus is the Son of God, and love thy neighbor.

Ever heard of the Establishment Clause? Separation of Church and State.

I happen to to think v.aginas are disgusting. I think straight s.ex is an "abomination" to watch or even think about. And I'm not trying to ruin your rights.  And I'm not twisting what the costitution says either.  And the repeal of DOMA makes it legal.  And the founding fathers are from the 1700's, the view of the 1700's does not get to dictate my rights.

If this piece was intended to be serious, I would advise that the author cite sources when stating facts about such a controversial issue. Otherwise, I think it's a very poignant satire.
