The Family Research Council has released a new documentary that details the "harms" of same-sex marriage. Though we've got to applaud the film titled The Problem with Same-sex Marriage: How It Will Affect You and Your Children because it manages to fit decades of lies and misinformation into one film. Hear what they have to say about us and our freedom to marry after the jump.
Here are just some of the highlights via ChristianPost:
Reason number one why same-sex marriage will harm society, aka, lie number one:
"Some immediate harms involve a loss of freedom for people who disapprove of homosexuality, and the threat to religious liberty for religious nonprofit groups, such as Christian adoption agencies."
Lie number two:
"Legalization of same-sex marriage would mean schoolchildren would be indoctrinated to support homosexuality – something that’s already begun in states that recognize same-sex marriage."
Lie number three:
"Because marriage exists to encourage a traditional family structure, redefining it would mean that fewer children would be raised by a married mother and father, more children would grow up fatherless and birth rates would fall – that’s our prediction if same-sex marriage becomes legal in all 50 states." Or, perhaps, fewer children would be orphans.
Lie number four:
"Because homosexuals are less likely to enter a committed relationship, less likely to be sexually faithful, and less likely to remain committed for a lifetime, we believe that those behaviors would spread to the heterosexual community if same-sex marriage is legalized and you would see fewer marriages, fewer people being monogamous and faithful, and fewer people remaining married for a lifetime."
Lie number five:
"Same-sex marriage would not be good for America is that it could mark the beginning of a slippery slope toward other redefinitions of marriage, such as the legalization of polygamy." Or, perhaps, treating people like second-class citizens is a slippery slope which, if continuing in the same direction, would resort to LGBT being treated inhumanely which would lead to more murders.
And perhaps the biggest lie is convincing people that most of these reasons are actually bad. What would this world be like if people like the Family Research Council didn't tell people what to fear?
