  2. The "full faith and credit" clause of the US constitution

  1. Misconception and prejudice toward homosexuals

a. The mentality that it is acceptable to treat homosexuals differently because they are different

b. The acceptance of interracial marriage

i. Loving vs. Virginia decision, the Supreme Court made it illegal for "any white person to intermarry with a colored person"

ii. Change due to the beginning acceptance of interracial marriage

III. Fear of accepting same-sex marriage would disrupt our society
1. Society has already been disrupted due to violence, divorce rate, and teenage problems

2. The result of interracial marriage

IV. Affect on children
1. Fear that same-sex couples cannot raise a child properly

  1. Fear that the child would grow up gay

2. The court takes away the custody of a child from a gay couple because they are not good examples

  1. Remarried children

  2. dysfunctional family and exposure of excessive drinking and drug abuse by parents

  3. The court takes their time in getting children out of those homes, but immediately takes away a child from a home whose parents are gay

3. Deception, distrust, and dishonestly from parents are what affects a child's growth

Same-sex marriage is not wrong. They should have their freedom to choose the lives they want to live. Gay parents do not have a big of an impact on children. It all depends on the act of the parent. So my definition of marriage is the union of two people who are in love and agrees to bind together legally.
