Yes, but sadly, people are very traditional and stubborn. They do not like to see things change, they do not like accepting that people are very different. Of course gay marriage should be allowed! What makes them different? Nothing. Why do people not accept this and move on? I would like to find out.

So, nothing makes "them", aka the gays, different. Then, why is it sad that "people do not like accepting that people are very different".

Or are they different and not different at the same time?

I have nothing against these people marrying! I would certainly never try to stop them.

Just don't ask me to recognize their "marriage", because I won't. And neither will the majoirty which pays taxes to the government. So, they have no right to demand this from the government, either.

You see, it's not about society imposing things on them, its them wanting things from society.

I'm not from the USA, and I was referring to the situation in my country.

But I don't see why it should be different for you.

No one is asking you to send a wedding gift or "recognize" other people's marriages. The fight for marriage equality is so that if Joe and Adam love each other, they can receive the same benefits as their neighbors Jenna and Roger. That means that if, for example, Adam dies, Joe is considered his next of kin and can receive his inheritance. If Joe gets sick and can't make his own decisions, Adam can be his proxy. You know, things like that.

No one cares if you think it's right because it doesn't affect you in any way so sit down and shut up.

Side: Yes.

I don't want to start a war with anyone, or something, but why is it your business if two people of the same sex get married. Frankly, I don't care as long as no PDA(personal display of affection) is shown. If two people love each other, let it be. It might bit weird, but love is love. You don't choose who you love. And if two people want to get married, of the same gender, I wouldn't bait an eye, because I know fate has a twisted view of things, but, love with still be love, and true love is the strongest power of them all. So you know what? Just let it be. Because, I know for that couple fate has a rollercoaster lined up for them.

Side: Yes.

Damn right. Diversity is what makes this planet awesome. Multiple colors on the rainbow make it beautiful, how would it look if it were only green? Boring if you ask me. If two people find love, then congrats!

Yes, why the shit isn't it?

Just because it's always been this way, doesn't make it right.

What is the actual point against this gay marriage?

Is it a moral dilemma? I've heard the whole 'But if you let two homo's get married then where do you draw the line? Can a man marry his dog?' argument and it is really stupid.

There are millions of people in the world whom feel genuine love and care and attraction to members of the same sex. It's the very same love that you feel for your partner. It's not sinful and it's not wrong. People who attack gay marriage, do you understand that you are ignorant? Do you understand that it is none of your business?

I'm sorry that you've formed such a horrible belief and that these peoples' lifestyle actually makes you upset, but that is your problem, not theirs.

They need not change to fit into your paradigm of what is appropriate.

I just really feel like at this time, We are thoughtful enough to really realize that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality and to unban them from marriage.

Go spend time with some gay people whom genuinely love each other and see how little your opinion is, how thoughtless it is.

You can't call that love inferior and you shouldn't be able to exempt them from solidifying it with marriage.

Gay marriage should be allowed. I understand if it goes against your religion, but you can't decide if a man wants to marry a man or if a woman wants to marry a woman. It's their choice not yours.

What's going to happen if same sex marriage is allowed? Nothing, it'll be completely normal.

There is no legal basis for not extending equal civil rights. Same-sex marriages have no demonstrable harms not also evident in opposite-sex marriages. This is a matter primarily of fiscal benefits constructed by the legal system, and does not bear upon private religious practice at all.

Side: Yes.

I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be allowed. Does it hurt anyone? No. Is affecting anyone other than the gay people? Not really. People really shouldn't be spending so much time on this topic. It's not their business and it doesn't really matter. If someone wants to marry someone, why hold them back? And if your comeback is going to be some crap about the bible, don't bother. Just because you believe it doesn't mean that other people do too.

I wonder why you assume atheists will hate on you. If you mean a lot of people are going to disagree with you, I'd safe that's probably a safe bet. After all, it's a debate forum, it wouldn't be very productive forum if few disagreed. ;)

Everytime I see a gay person kissing it makes me want to vomit.

And that's your personal distaste. I really don't like seeing extreme age differences in relationships between as adults. To think you find someone sexually attracting when you could be their parent/grandparent or vice versa is skin crawling. I also don't like seeing any couple at all who are making out; when they seem attached at the lip.

But I recognize these groups of people still have the right to do so. My personal disdain for it doesn't mean a damn thing to their legal rights. And it should be that way anyway.

They are spreading their perversion

I would disagree with this anyway, but even if it was, many "perversions" are legal.

and enforcing their religion (secular humanism and gayness) on me. It ticks me off.

I'd like many claims proven here.

First, that this is their religion.

Second, that they're enforcing this religion.

And third, that secularism and humanism are a religion. Humanism I will give a little bit of leave-way, we could debate whether it's a religion, movement or philosophy but I'll just give it to you.

You are wrong. Marriage is the joinging of two PEOPLE. And evn though we don't agree with incest, it is only society that has a real problem with it. There is no factual evidence saying that it is just plain wrong. If some guy wants to marry his sister, go ahead. I think it is wierd, but it's not my place to impede on their happiness. If you want to compare the two, gay marriages so far have a lower divorce rate, lower spousal abuse, lower child abuse rates, higher income, the list goes on. So who's marriage is the screwed up one?

Wait a second. You just said that if the people wanted to marry their sister they can but you also said it would be weird. That's the same thing with gay marriage, it's unnatural and it's not common in our society. Traditional marriage is between one male and a one female and that's how it's always been and meant to be.
