I can tell you this right now - any actions that "dictate" what children should be taught about homosexuality will most certainly be considered an act of war.
So name that way that it effects others.
Why are children being pulled into it? Go back and read my link. 1.2 million children of gay couples are suffering the consequences of the bigotry and intolerance that keeps same sex marriage illegal. You sir, are part of the group that denies these children the same benefits that you would demand for your own children. How selfish and self centered is that?
If you want to teach your future children that homosexuality is wrong, same sex marriage being legal will certainly not prevent you from doing so. For heaven's sake, there are still people that teach their kids that interracial marriage is wrong. Nothing about interracial marriage being legal has interferred with their right to do that.
You are still citing personal belief systems. Come up with a legal premise. Come up with a way that samwe sex marriage has a direct legal consequence for you. Come up with a single way that your rights will be taken away through the granting of the same rights to a marginalized population.
