Please help me to evaluate this article.

Philosophically speaking, I was not taught this subject. Let me therefore go to my mentor to obtain the details about it. In the meantime, please don’t take any hasty or wrong step, which may affect your health conditions.

The true and genuine argument against same sex marriage is about benefits and the fear that the pool of benefits will be spread thinner if ANYONE new is invited. Government benefits and policies are often mentioned by the people in favor but it is pensions and family insurance that people are worried about. The idea that religion is an issue is a load of BS. Marriage has always been something governments sanctioned. It is ancient but it has nothing to do with God. It was about inheritance and property. Priests only got involved because they kept good records. They were literate and were witnesses beyond reproach. That is why the government licenses it today and why Kings and tribal chiefs had to approve of it centuries ago. The idea that marriage was about love didn’t even occur to fairly recently (last 300 years or so) Before that girls were married off to seal deals, secure property and insure legitimate heirs. Love was a happy accident if it happened at all and God just witnessed the contract since lawyers didn’t exist yet.

My only comment or evaluation is, Gay marriage is not normal and makes a mockery of normal marriage between man and women.
