What makes the judges smarter than parents. Straights have rights when it pertains to public school mandates to teach them that gays are born gay and not nurtured. What proof do the judges have that they are right and straight are wrong?
The only thing (most) people did to become parents was to get naked and have sex. That surely didn't make them smart. Judges have to show a considerable degree of education and knowledge of that state's and the U.S. Constitution.

The judges are not to rely on religion and personal likes or dislikes when it comes to making decisions. That is why the judge is the Loving v. Virginia case was so wrong in his "god separated the races...." speech when he handed down his decision. That is why the judge (a Bush appointee) in the 2005 Dover case ruled against the school district in the Intelligent Design case. Similar kudos the judge in Massachussetts who dismissed the case in the King-&-King case.

Hindo's and Muslims do not embrace homosexuality.
I can deduce what GOD intends from the bible and my faith and the faith of millions of like minded people where by once again, when you are forever in the minority (which you are on this point) you are not going to get very far. End of story.
Hindus and Muslims do not embrace it but there are gay Hindus and Muslims out there. Get alot of them people in gay chat rooms on yahoo.

A gay sex act is any sexual act performed by someone who is gay. Even masturbation can be labeled as gay if a gay person does it. It’s all about the self-important label.
<quoted text>
If it’s called a “Gay” marriage, it makes them feel better that they’ve accomplished something and now have their own topic to talk about. The same applies for any minority group whether it be blacks, hispanics, Jews, gays or anyone else. The caveat is that before you use that label, you had better be part of that group before using a labeling term. If not, you’ll be accused of a hate crime and have the ACLU up your a55.
ROTFL! What do we call a STR8 person who masturbates.........gay? ROTFL.

keep in mind... do one is saying that churches have to provide same sex marriage rites, It would be great if they did, but this is not an issue of the churches but a "civil rights" issue.... If you dont believe in gay marriages, dont marry a gay person....

Under the separation of church and state of our federal and state constitutions, individual "religious views" are not what pertinant, merely the equality of rights under the constitiution.

If being Gay is such a terrible thing, why did GOD make us? Are we such terrible people? We go to work, we take care of our pocessions we don't kill and why would we JUDGE YOU the way we are JUDGED? It's not something like getting up in the morning and saying ok I'm going to be gay today! We don't have it easy. Also did you ever think that your husband or wife might be sneaking around behind your back getting some from the same sex? Hmm! Maybe he/she was at my house getting same sex! Or I'm going out with the guys tonight, don't wait up! Or maybe I'm going out with the girls tonight, don't wait up! Your spouse could be with me wright now! Hmm! GAY PEOPLE ARE NOT BAD PEOPLE! You all make us sound bad. But what did we ever do to you to hate us that much? We don't choose to be that way. It is very hard to be accepted into society. What about the White people with Black people couples? What about Spanish with Black or White with Asians etc....What if your children become gay? What about your family members that are living in the closet? Why can't people just get along and live in harmony? Hate is not good! I guess you can say "MAKE LOVE NOT WAR"

I'm sure there are many "compassionate" Conservative Christians who would say that homosexuals were created by God--as heterosexuals--but they were weak and have been corrupted by the Devil.
You have to remember, these people are utterly convinced that they alone(to whichever denomination they happen to belong) know the answers to humanity, spirituality, and the nature of the universe. They believe with all their heart that homosexuality is an aberration, and is sure to incur the wrath of God...they'll usually use Sodom and Gomorrah as an illustrative example.
I've always felt that those who are the most verbal, and rant and rage against homosexuality and homosexuals to be either uncertain of, or uncomfortable with, their own sexuality.
Perhaps they're disgusted by deep-seated desires that they harbor, and their guilt manifests itself in their vehement condemnation of homosexuality.
You can always take heart that the generations of today seem to be far less judgmental concerning someone's sexual preferences. Perhaps there is hope that we'll evolve beyond our Puritanical roots after all.

It's not about religous believes, it's about love!! Why deny the love between 2 people that care for each other so much like any other human being. Everyone has a right to do what they want as long as we're not hurting anyone.
end the hate

Just for the record...my name is also Kate Sommers and I'm in agreement with anyone that loves each other getting married, regardless of their gender.
Marriage is about union of love, not what sex we are.:)
