I thought I would look for articles online about same sex marriage being how this is such a hot topic and a lot of people have their own opinions.

This author had no credibility, no fact or anything to back up his argument. There were not any reliable sources in this argument which makes me believe that everything about this article was just the opinion of the author. While I believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I believe one should have reliable sources...
