1. Children in public schools will have to be taught that same-sex marriage is just as good as traditional marriage.
Most State Education Codes already require that health education classes instruct children about marriage, therefore, children will be taught that marriage is between any two adults regardless of gender. There will be serious clashes between the secular school system and the right of parents to teach their children their own values and beliefs.

- Second graders were read a book, “King and King”, about two men who have a romance and marry each other, with a picture of them kissing. When parents Rob and Robin Wirthlin complained, they were told that the school had no obligation to notify them or allow them to opt-out their child.
- Schools using “safe zones” to counsel children who feel different – maybe they should “come out” as gay!

- Laramie Project–A play pedaled to high school theater groups that demeans people who disagree with homosexuality and casts them as people who are likely murderers.
- In Newton, Mass. in 2006, third-graders were subjected to a discussion of a father who’s undergoing a sex-change operation to become a classmate’s second “mommy” — and the school social worker led this class without parental notification.
2. Churches may be sued over their tax exempt status if they refuse to allow same-sex marriage ceremonies in their religious buildings open to the public.
If same-sex “marriage” is legalized, churches could find themselves in a difficult position. While some homosexual activist groups deny that churches would be pressured to perform same-sex “marriages,” antidiscrimination laws that include “sexual orientation” could force churches to make a choice between their tax-exempt status, denial of equal access to public property, and violating their religious beliefs.
In Canada, merely running an ad in a newspaper with Scripture condemning homosexual behavior resulted in a fine.
3. Religious adoption agencies will be challenged by government agencies to give up their long-held right to place children only in homes with both a mother and a father. Catholic Charities in Boston already closed its doors in Massachusetts because courts legalized same-sex marriage there.
4. Private businesses and schools are being forced to accommodate “alternative” lifestyle choices.
eHarmony dating company was sued and forced to provide dating services for homosexual couples
A Hotel was sued for denying a homosexual couple a double room
5. Individuals who speak out against same-sex marriages may be sued for hate speech and risk government fines. It already happened in Canada, a country that legalized gay marriage. A recent California court held that municipal employees may not say: “traditional marriage,” or “family values” because, after the same-sex marriage case, it is “hate speech.”

6. It will cost you money. This change in the definition of marriage will bring a cascade of lawsuits, including some already lost (e.g., photographers cannot now refuse to photograph gay marriages, doctors cannot now refuse to perform artificial insemination of gays even given other willing doctors). Even if courts eventually find in favor of a defender of traditional marriage (highly improbable given today’s activist judges), think of the money – your money – that will be spent on such legal battles.
And think of all the unintended consequences that we cannot even foresee at this time. Where will it end?
It’s your children, your grandchildren, your money, and your liberties.
Lets work together to protect them.
