Is gay marriage wrong?

There is a lot of controversy about whether or not gay marriage is wrong. Some say that love is love and that same-sex marriage is just like any other marriage. Meanwhile, others say that being homosexual as a whole is completely against the bible. What's your view?

GAY MARRIAGE IS JUST LIKE ANY OTHER MARRIAGE. Love is love, people! I'm ashamed to say that there is a good amount of people who think that something is wrong with homosexual, bisexual, asexual, etc. individuals. Why can't people realize that maybe sexuality is God's way of trying to reduce the world population (which is frighteningly growing by the year). A LONG TIME ago, people's view of same-sex relations was that anybody who has any romantic or sexual relation with an individual of the same gender has committed a crime. They didn't know any better! I'm not saying that the bible isn't holy and righteous or whatever. I'm just saying that what did these people know?

Love. Is. Love.

As a 100% heterosexual I am also 100% in support of gay marriages.

Who am I to judge the sexual orientation or preferences of anyone?

If two same gender people wish to be married and enjoy the same legal recognition as hetrosexuals then they have every right to expect equality of treatment.

It is perfectly fine as long as it's between two consenting adults. It's not like heterosexual couples are doing a bang up job of respecting the establishment of marriage, so let's stop with the judging. Having a loving home, respecting your neighbors, raising children and nurturing them....that's what's important in life and everyone should have the opportunity to have that should they choose.

Side: Gay marriage is perfectly fine

Yeah it is not wrong. Unlike some of the people on here believe it is. If God is truly against homosexuals than i guess every homosexual will be judged and sent to Hell when they see the pearly gates and talk with God.

It is no ones business on if someone wants to marry. Leave people alone are they hurting any of you? No exactly than why do y'all make such a fuse about it? That is right because y'all are scared that your own child will be gay and you want to suppress them so they do not ever tell you they are. Of course if you are a parent and you are anti gay marriage you are not a parent in my books.

Unconditional love is what being a parent is about. And that means love no matter what for parents that do not know what UNCONDITIONAL LOVE means!

What does unconditional love of a parent have to do with whether gay marriage is right or wrong?

When any extremist movement comes along, such as this progressive movement, our nation must stand strong and stand up for our constitution and our individual freedoms to dissagree with this political correct Big Brother Government.

This is what you should fear from these PC elites......... They have spent decades pushing their progressive anti God movement, one step at a time, until they finally were able to appoint enough liberal activist Justices to force their ideology on ALL STATES!

You see, there is nothing wrong when a majority of people in individual States decide to change their marriage laws.

This is not what happened. We watched as one by one, States were forced by a single Judge to change their marriage laws(regardless if the vast majority of people in those states were totally against gay marriage).

Then it went to the supreme court after Obama had appointed enough Liberal Justices to force his ideology on ALL STATES.

The intent of these Liberal justices was not to interpret the Constitution as they are suppose to do, but rather legislate their political correct ideology on ALL STATES!

America is losing it's freedoms to dissagree with Big Brother. I have no problem with people who believe in things I dissagree with. This is why we have 50 States with all types of diversity.

If a State's people decide they want Gay marriage, they could do so. But that was not good enough for the left. They must FORCE ALL STATES TO CHANGE THEIR MARRIAGE LAWS REGARDLESS WHAT THE PEOPLE IN THOSE STATES WANTED.

Please try to grasp how you would feel if the Supreme court decided to change the laws in your state on issues where the majority did not agree! Would you like that?

Can you see the danger of the Big Brother Left or the Right forcing us all to follow the dictates of the Collective?

Now these fools on the Left will try to equate a man's skin color with unnaturl sexual orientations and in this way make you think it is an equal right's issue. IT IS NOT! THEY ARE LIARS! The rights of the States over rides so called concocted rights of this Progressive movement.

This argument would equally be as nonsensical if you replaced it with segregation. It took Brown v. Board to take down segregation, even though people didn't want it.

I'm not sure how it's extremist or anti-god.

It doesn't matter if a majority of people want it or not, we're specifically a republic and not a democracy for this reason because the majority isn't always right. The majority didn't lose any rights from this, but gay people finally got the equal right to marry.

If these sexual orientations are "unnatural", then what explains how these desires arise naturally in humans as well as other species? Not to mention that "natural" is relevant. Contact lenses aren't natural.

False. Violating the constitution is wrong in a constitutional democracy.

That's not what this debate is about. This isn't a question that's trying to argue if gay marriage should be legal, or who should legalize it, or anything like that. The question was "Is gay marriage wrong?"

Do you have an opinion on that question?

I answered the question. Gay marriage is wrong if the majority of a State says it is wrong.

A man having 30 wives is wrong if the majority of a State says it is wrong. Funny how your double standards never applies to other groups who want to change our marriage laws.

Do you believe a man having 30 wives is wrong? Do you believe an activist court of political justices should force every state to allow men to have many wives?

Can you grasp the meanings of words? My personal opinion on Gay marriage can not be forced on every state.

Of course i believe Gay marriage is wrong. I've explained my reasoning a thousand times, yet people like you keep wasting our time.

Just because the majority of people in state want something doesn't make it any less discriminatory. You can't deny the rights of a smaller group for those of a larger group, that's not what equality is about. I could understand if they wanted more, but they solely want THE SAME.

Do you believe a man having 30 wives is ok? Do you believe an activist court of political justices should force every state to allow men to have as many wives as they want?

Would you be for a new Canadian law forcing all your provinces to allow bigamy?

Spare me this biased pro LGBT political correctness whereby only they get to change our marriage laws.

Unless you make marriage laws that give every group the right to marry, then you can not single out only democrat voting blocks to do so.

Just check with the Religion of Islam on this and by the way Democrats love Muslims so go figure that convoluted thinking that takes place in the mind of a Democrat.

Side: Gay marriage is wrong

You are correct. You see, Democrats do not apply logic to the issues they support.

They are all over the map with their agendas. They stand for nothing but what they believe will get them elected. They were pro life until the poll numbers allowed them to flip flop on a child's right to life.

They constantly bring up LGBT rhetoric in their speeches, while at the same time supporting Muslim nations, and supporting Muslims in this nation whose religious beliefs say it is ok to kill Gays and women, and taking money from Muslim nations.

Is this taking a stand for women and Gays?

Do you know how dumb you sound talking about the Democrats being bad for doing what the people who vote for them want and being upset that what the majority of people want isn't being honored?

The real Muslim religion does not say anything about it being OK to hurt anyone. You are thinking about psychotic and iradical Muslims which believe killing anyone is right.

Side: Gay marriage is perfectly fine

I view as marriage as something pure. Gay marriage is poisoning the whole idea of marriage. Two people of the same sex are not meant to be together, it's a sinful deed.
