Hey, my religion is against that, but that dosent mean it has to be outlawed for everyone

We live in a land of "freedom", even if we can't exercise taht freedom sometimes. It's just violating a citizen's right to free will to prohibit gay marriage.

I'm not really into gay marriage, but if other people are, i wish u luck in standing up for your beliefs

And that's what I feel people should think. Just because it's against your religion doesn't mean that other people must follow what you believe. It's your ideology. Not everyone's.

If you're looking at it religiously then religious attitudes should be modified to reflect the changes in society. Many religious views are outdated and no longer justifiable ( women play a subservient role to men in the world). Conversely, gay couples should be allowed the option to undergo civil marriages, this does not entail any religious ceremonies and ought to be acceptable to those who object to gay marriages on the grounds of their religious beliefs.

2 people that are in love deserve to be married no matter what their sexual preferences may be. That's discrimination, we need to abolish discrimination as a whole. We should all feel complete empathy towards our fellow man despite his or her anything. It just shouldn't matter.

I don't think the religious world should have to alter their views on gay marriage at all. I think they should ignore it entirely. I don't think religions are outdated either. Christianity, for example, is based on worshiping a God who sent his son (male) to Earth and his son picked 12 men, the apostles to be his advocates. There were many more prominent men in the Bible, not because of today's society, but because men were higher than women in that time period. The time period has influenced many practices that remain today. Well that was a nice little side-track from the debate topic. :)

Keep it out of the church. That would just be a whole mess and wars would break out. However, why shouldn't gays marry in a legal sense? It doesn't hurt anybody and it doesn't affect me in any way. If gays want to miserable for the rest of their lives, then let them. ;)

I can't see the point why they shouldn't be allowed to be married. It's there prerogative and we are all entitled for our own rights and belief. Where is the whole sense of democracy for all of them? Everyone needs a state of belongingness I think this what what they were all after.

Side: gay marriage should be allowed

Yes Rafael...you hit the nail right on the head when you said that "everyone needs a state of belongingness." and "I think this is what they were all after." You betcha. The state of belonging, the state of acceptance for who and what kind of person you are, the state of matrimony which is a sacred trust between two people...And even though they cannot have biological children they can adopt a child, have artificial insemination anonymously or by someone they know.

YES! and this is coming from a straight white girl. love has no gender so why should marriage. if everyone else has equal rights so should the gay community. when all the civil rights acts were enacted it was to get people of different races equal rights, this is basically the same thing. sexual orientation doesn't change who a person is, all it is, is the preference of partners. people who oppose this are the people who are probably homophobic or aren't fully comfortable with their sexuality. America needs to step up and realize when we gave rights to women, and people of different races, we left out a very big and very important part of society: the homosexuals. Why cant the government step up and right the wrongs it has done?

I totally believe that gay marriage should be allowed.

It is obvious that these people aren't trying to please you or anyone else. I mean, if I were gay (which I'm not) I wouldn't give two junks on what people thought about the sex I like, or dislike for the matter.

I know many Christian/Catholic believers don't go for this, but I am Catholic and honestly, I don't really mind.

My dad and uncle told me once that God didn't want for us to find a lover of the same sex, they said that God wanted for lovers to be of the opposite sex. Now would God want to see his children unhappy? Even though I've been thought from right to wrong, I believe that gay marriage should be allowed, legal or illegal in some parts of the world.

Do you think it is nice when you harass and criticize or discriminate gay people because they are a little different? That is not the right thing to do, gay or not.

Did you know that they could sue you for harassment, or press charges for discrimination? Criticism isn't to take lightly either, I mean, yeah, we go around talking about each other behind one another's back. Yet it isn't right, especially if they are unique in a way.

Finally, do you want to live in a world where everything has to be the same? Everyone isn't going to be straight or believe in the same thing as you. You just got to put up with the fact that everybody rolls their own way. Trust me, it's okay to be different it makes you unique, a one of a kind.

Me, being the person I am, am unique. No I'm not gay, nor am I made up of a bunch of races. What makes me unique is my personality, the way I dress, talk, and how I roll. People always call me weird, actually they've always called me weird. I don't really know the definition of 'weird'. I just looked it up, it said it was something 'uncanny' or 'supernatural'. That made me laugh. Really? 'supernatural'? That is pathetic!

Unique, for me, that word means different, beautiful inside, non-faker, brave, and one of a kind. All these synonyms come to my mind when I see this word. When I see a happy gay couple, or someone that is out there, this word comes up to my mind.

Our country and world would be boring, and non unique without our gay people. If we can't allow these gay citizens to be happy, do you think it would be fair if we were happy, and for them to be miserable? Just think about it. If you really aren't selfish, and you are a loving and understanding person, you would understand.

Don't be a selfish person, think about the change we would make in our world. Think about how many gay people would be happy and not scared of what they will have to face today, or tomorrow. Think about their and your future! Think about the change! We are all humans, so we all deserve equality! Please, be aware of your actions and thoughts around those people, make the world a better place!

I do not at all feel as God wants two men or two woman to be together, as he has made each a man and a woman to combine and be together. However, it is our constitutional right to make our own chices in America. What I believe should be "exit only" is non of my business where people put things. As far as a legal bond, we are considered "one nation under God" but , the goverment would make a benifit from gay marriage, wether I a gree or not. Like I said we should have the freedom to choose, we are Americans and our ancestors fought for our freedom!!!!!

For those who are against same-sex marriage, I dare you to give one RATIONAL reason why it shouldn't be allowed. Without brawling biblical recitings.

If you say they can't because you say "It was not adam and steve", you have no point. Adam and eve were not married at the first place. So the fact that they were a male and a female, is a worthless point. It has nothing to do with marriage. If you believe in that story, consider that they have 2 sons, and still they are the beginning of mankind. Hallo incest!

I myself don't believe in the bible, so I don't care what it says anyways.

If you start brawling about Leviticus, you should think then that, in god's opinion, all sins are equal. In the bible, eating shrimps is a sin...

If you say that it shouldn't be allowed because they can't produce any offspring, you have no point either. If you claim that, well you should also forbid straight marriages with no offspring... I think gay marriages would let the divorce-rates go down, what about that then.

There is scientific proof, some animals have a gay lifestyle. And animals don't have a conscience or can't reason. Therefor being gay isn't a choice.

I truly believe that marriage is about love en caring between two loving beings. If they can express that, they should be married. No one could stand in their way with a rational reason.

And I am sure that evolution will ensure that close-mindness will be abandoned.

it is a natural cause that anyone can do if someone is in love that person may it be man or woman that person a person has a choice no matter what the case is if that person wants to be gay let that person be gay it don't matter any ways if it makes people happy than it makes people happy plus is that not the meaning of the word it self also its not like they are going to affect anybody or do anything.

In short, yes, gay marriage should be allowed. If marriage between a man and a woman is legal (as well as intermarriage) then why should it not be allowed between those of the same sex?

Those who argue that it shouldn't be allowed because marriage is of a particular religion that forbids anyone being gay then they should also agree that marriage should therefore have nothing to do with being a legal matter in which a couple gets benefits from getting married such as in the areas of medical, taxes, death, and more. If gay couples can't receive these rights, then no one else should. Everyone should therefore be reduced to what many gays have to due now and just have a ceremonoly marriage with no legal benefits.

Also those who are against it due to their religion need to realize that whether or not it is against their religion or not, that has nothing to do with it because ,last I checked, my country has the freedom of religion, meaning not everyone has to follow what one person believes. And in all honestly, a gay marriage will ,in the most, not affect the said person any more then it does now.

Another point people agrue is that gay marriage will lead to and allow what is not traditionally thought of as a family and to many, this is unacceptable. And to those people, I say that the traditional family of a mother and father has already become less popular then it was a even a few decades ago. In today's world, there are many forms of what is now considered a "family". There are those who are raised with only a single parent, those who are divorced, those who were born from a seregate and raised by a different couple, ect, are only a few examples. People need to realize that times change and that a major change is happening now whether they agree with it or not.

In the end, I believe gay marriage should be allowed with all the legal rights and benefits that a marriage between a man and a woman have and those who think otherwise are basicly just discriminating against what is different from themselves. Eventually gay marriage will be legallize just as intermarriage has been and future generations will look down upon those who are against gay marriage now as we look down upon those who disagreed with intermarriage. Simple as that.

16 states have already passed same sex marriage laws. This is a great start but it is not nearly enough. The idea that some people could not get married just because of a slight difference in sexual orientation is absurd. Personally, I am not gay, but I still have strong feelings for social rights. I don’t believe that anyone should be discriminated against because of genetic differences.

When I see the fight that the homosexual community is going through to get the right to marry, it reminds me of the civil rights movements of African Americans. Although there is not nearly the volume of violence associated with the gay rights movement, the oppression is still the same. Both groups have been discriminated against because of things that they cannot control; even worse than that, these things don’t make them less than anyone else. Instead of focusing on what makes us different, we need to focus on the massive amounts of similarities that we share.

There are some other very positive signs. David Blankenhorn has been a huge opponent of gay marriage for a long time. However, now he has come out and said that although his views have not changed, he will no longer fight against gay marriage. This is a huge breakthrough. It shows that you don’t have to support it, but you also don’t have to fight against it. I know that there are a lot of people who will never support gay marriage, but why would you take away from someone else’s happiness?

I know that these points have been brought up before but I thought that I would share my support. The only way to change things is for people to speak out about their opinions, so ill join the fight. Our country was founded on the principle that all men are created equal. So why are we restricting rights of a certain group of people? People are different, but that doesn’t mean that they should be treated any other way. Marriage is something that everyone should be able to enjoy.

When we as imperfect humans take it up our own actions to ostracize a certain "culture" of people for their choice of lifestyle, we are now trying to use our own discretion to play God which is simply wrong. Gay marriage should be allowed under the pretenses that you cannot dictate who a person chooses to love. Not religiously speaking, but when did it ever become a law that homosexual couples couldn't get married? Now religiously speaking, We (as the people) are choosing to use the bible and Gods law only for our benefit. I'd like to highlight that the bible does say man was created for woman, and woman was created for man but let's remember who wrote the bible and let's also remember how many years later after the death of Christ was this bible written; Gay marriage should be allowed, simply because we don't not have the right to deny homosexuals their entitlement to marriage quite frankly it's none of our business as to how they handle their relationship.

I shall oppose you on this subject until the day I die Jake. Being Gay is a fact, albeit not in the majority of the people born. You're right, never give in to conformity and we're trying not to! You talk about the few being louder. They have to be just to get the ear of those who can put things right. Ever hear of the Boston Tea Party? Those people were in the minority but they were absolutely right. What came from that was the fundamental right to be represented while being taxed.

What is a family? In today's world it is many things. A mother and father with children, a mother and child, a father and child, a child who has been abandoned but has been rescued through adoption or foster care and the gay couple or person whose God given right to have children has been thwarted by people like you. It's not "We" who have been created to be with the opposite sex. It is "You" and many, many others like you but what if you weren't created that way? What if you were created to be exactly what you are? Straight, Gay, Asexual and whatever else there is?

Homosexuality is not abnormal simply because you say so. You put up a debate in the last couple of weeks about wanting to read a good book. Good! Go read one about Homosexuality and how right it really is. What once was considered a malady of the mind is now a malady of the homophobe because you dare not disturb your thinking. So what that most people aren't gay? That has about as much to do with anything as most people not being born on Pitcairn Island! No one is being brainwashed here but you...especially not "laterally."

It goes against your beliefs and you have a right to those to those beliefs. Yes you do...but I'll tell you what Jake. In the time you've been here I have never once seen you alter anything about YOUR beliefs. Your beliefs are as old as Methuselah and you do not wish to alter them one degree by reading, interacting with or trying to understand what Gay people are or represent. We are all things, just like straight people are.

You even have the gall to bring in the Constitution of the United States. Please back-up ALL your condemnations with proof...outside of your own thoughts.

Most Americans don't what gay marriage to be legal.

With respect to same-sex marriage, it's become an issue of the tyranny of the majority. Surely even you can recognize that there have been a number of movements that overcame the opposition of the majority to become constitutionally bound.

Family - anything that goes against a mother and a father being the only definition of a family is going against the constitution, what this country was founded on and nature.

A large number of animals have homosexuals within their population. Nature has nothing to do with it. Miscegeny was also constitutionally outlawed in the majority of states, and it took a constitutional amendment to allow its practice to be legal. It's not surprising that conservatives have been using the same bloody arguments that you and people like you (oh yeah, conservatives) use with respect to homosexuals and homosexual marriage are nearly the exact same arguments people were using during the days of anti-miscegenation.

We are in every way created to be with the opposite sex.

Which has no bearing on policy. And if it does, it's unconstitutional.

Homosexuality is abnormal.

So is left handedness.

Most people are not gay.

Most people aren't crippled from birth, either, but it doesn't stop us from making legal provisions for their equitable treatment.

It goes against my beliefs.

Of course it does. So what?

And I have a right to those beliefs.

But no right to turn your personal beliefs into policy. That, my friend, is unconstitutional - certainly if it's religious. And if it's just because gays and lesbians, transexuals, and vestites, and bisexuals make you queezy, then you have no legal ground to stand on either.

As far as I'm concerned, it's just a matter of time. I wish we had another "Why We Can't Wait" to read so we can all see the absolutely obtuse, ridiculousness of opposing progressive marriage reform. These antiquated religious and social mores are getting rather silly.

Americans are not required to give a reason for their votes. They can vote however they want. Don't let those sore losers who call themselves patriots, who say they want peace, who cause chaos in the streets tell you what to believe. Don't give in to conformity.

Do you mean to say that if someone has views that they protest and believe in are 'sore losers' who are 'giving in to conformity?' If so, then you are simply being ridiculous. Just because someone goes against what society believes to be the social norm, it doesn't make them 'sore losers!' This sort of thing has happened for years and years and years. Slavery and segregation; the same thing happened. Racial equality, it happened. In the Holocaust, when Jews, blacks, the disabled, the gypsies, and everyone else being massacred and taught by society to be hated, that was wrong. Because you, or because society has been taught to agree that something is bad, that doesn't make it so.

Conformity, you say. If by conformity you mean a new movement, that doesn't make it inherently bad. Resistance to change has been shown as negative time and time again throughout history. I'm not saying that everything people want to do, but gay marriage is not harmful, hurtful, and same-sex love is a natural thing that the brain creates.

I am now going to tell you why I don't want gay marriage in my country:

1. Family - anything that goes against a mother and a father being the only definition of a family is going against the constitution, what this country was founded on and nature. We are in every way created to be with the opposite sex.

Okay, I'm trying to understand how you think that using the constitution is a good, logical argument. I'm not saying that the constitution is a bad thing, but it is meant to be changed. The original constitution said nothing about racial equality, gender equality, abolishing slavery, drinking, presidential control, or ANY of the amendments (except for the first 10, of course.) The main reason of the constitution is to adapt over time. What someone came up with several hundred years ago is meant to change over those hundred years!

And we are not 'in every way created to be with the opposite sex.' If that was true, people's minds would not ever create same-sex love. There is no evidence that suggests that there is anything wrong with children raised by same-sex parents. If you find some, please, let me know.

2. Homosexuality is abnormal. Most people are not gay. The media trains people to think the opposite. People are laterally being brainwashed. That is never good.

Okay, first of all, literally, not laterally. And abnormal? What makes something abnormal? Approximately 1 in 10 people will not be heterosexual. 10%. Do you find Jews abnormal? Only 0.22% of people are Jewish. I know that's by choice, but then do you find whites abnormal? Only 17% of people in the world are white. That's a mere 7% difference from those who are not heterosexual.

3. It goes against my beliefs. And I have a right to those beliefs.

Yes, of course you do. But your beliefs do not give you the right to govern how other people want to live their lives. You can't tell people they can't marry who they love just because you find it icky.

Hope you find the time to read this over. I look forwards to your response.

In the Bible Sodom and Gomorrah were two cities that God destroyed because of the many sins that were in those towns, One of them was homosexuality. Not only that, God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. The purpose of marriage is to bind together a man and a woman, not a man and a man, and vice versa. And what's the point of getting married if you can't even have children to carry on the family bloodline. Also, it's insulting for gays to be married inside of a church. Most religions believe that homosexuality is a sin. So to be married in a church is just downright ignorant.

This is a highly bigoted opinion. Making a case against gay marriage on god alone is a weak position. In what way does the people on the other side being gay somehow devalue their opinions?

If I'm gay, does my opinion somehow mean less than yours?

Gay people don't harm other people. To deprive them of their right to marry the person they love who happens to be the same sex, is wrong.

This is a completely black and white issue, no gray area whatsoever. Homosexual couples are being deprived the right to marriage as well as all the legal benefits that come along with marriage. This is a civil rights issue.

I'm very confused about something. Why is it that if you don't agree with gay marriage you are considered narrow minded and stupid. but if you do agree with gay marriage you are a wonderful person. I don't believe in gay marriage but I have looked at all the arguments and made my decision. I didn't automatically say because I am a Christian I am against gay marriage (I am a Christian though). So please all of you for gay marriage stop calling us narrow minded and stupid and trying to stop the evolution of society. I think it is hypocritical of you to call us stupid and then say well if you were gay you would feel different.

The relationship between a gay couple is not the government's concern. The reason why the American government involves itself in a couples relationship is because of the potential citizens that couple will produce.

A man and woman's unity is probably the most natural and inexpensive way to produce children. The purpose of a marriage license is that the government has verified that the husband and wife will produce, and care for healthy tax-paying citizens. In some states you won't get a marriage license if you have an std. No one is saying you can't be in a relationship, it is just that the government has no need to recognize your marriage. Gay couples can live together, have intimate relations, and it is even possible for an unmarried couple to adopt and raise children (although there is an argument that a child deserves both a mother and a father figure). But it is unnecessary for a gay relationship to be acknowledged by the government. I am a firm believer that the government should stay out of areas that are outside of the spectrum of its authority.
