Top 10 Reasons to Support Gay Marriage

1. Supporting Equality.

Discrimination leads to anger, resentment, and unnecessary pain. Being able to look beyond your perspective can help you learn and grow.


2. Supporting Families.

There are many gay and lesbian people who would make wonderful parents. There are also many children who would benefit from these parents. Marriage supports the idea of a unified family.


3. Discrimination is negative.

Negative emotions exert much more energy than do positive emotions. Why not exert only positive emotions by being accepting?


4. Withholding rights hurts.

Research from other discriminated groups shows that withholding rights leads to larger issues. Mental health is negatively impacted by discrimination, which sociologically and economically impacts us all.


5. Marriage supports love.

For a couple that has a priority of marriage, such a ceremony/ritual promotes love. Discrimination denies a positive, yet harmless experience for others.


6. Withholding the right to marriage hurts families.

For gay and lesbian parented families who already have children, the negative psychological impact of discrimination can also negatively impact the children. Happier people have an easier time parenting.


7. Denying such rights denies science.

Science has shown that being gay or lesbian is normal. Not accepting this denies what studies have shown to be true.


8. You can teach others the power of tolerance. 

It is important to teach people, especially the younger generations about tolerance. Whether you disagree or agree with gay marriage, never promote health.


9. Gay marriage is good for the economy.

Marriages cost a fair amount of money. Also, couples tend to have more spending power than do individuals.


10. Support separation of church and state. 

This is a principle that this country was founded on. Supporting freedom of religion, and welcoming of perspectives helps us learn and grow.
