Have you noticed most of the people on Facebook flying the Equal Rights banner in support of the gay marriage are also the ones that haven't succeeded in keeping their own marriage vows? Unless you consider divorce a part of a successful marriage; the equal lighters are insisting we change the rules to fit their beliefs. It starts with ones own creditability. Thank GOD the Supreme Court decides these important issues and not a bunch of overzealous Facebook friends.

Again, people focusing their attention to shit that doesn't matter. When these "social rights" zealots find a reason to push their agenda, our tax dollars are wasted. Proposition 8 was put on the California ballot in 2008! It was voted on during a Presidential election year, and the masses had their voices heard. Why are we still hearing about it? Oh, because a select few didn't get what they want. This select few even chose one of the most liberal states to gain support! Still failed.

Now, just 5 years later, the liberal media pushes their "opinion" that 57% of the entire country supports gay marriage??? In just 5 years??? At least most republicans have shut up after Barack Obamawon re-election. I agree more support should be given to him. But a federally pushed agenda overturning a 5 year-old state law? No wonder this country is in a damn hole. And I'm a registered Democrat and damn proud of it.

If you don't like the guy, why are you friends on Facebook with him? Why pretend to be a friend then turn around and stab the guy in the back on Topix? That actually says alot more about your character than his.

He/she didn't point out one individual, much less one "guy." Guilty conscience must be eating you alive.

Is this going to be another one of those discussions about all the gay people at Murphy?

How pathetic. Excluding comment #2 ever comment on here is that homosexual "thing". It's easy to see why these "things" are so hated, other of course than the fact they are disgusting.

The Supreme Court is just as corrupt and ignorant as the vast majority of the people. Personally I view homosexuality as the mental disorder it was considered to be until political pressure, not scientific research, changed that in the 1990s. But despite this I believe gays should have the right to marry. My reasoning is that marriage is a church founded institution. Churches of any kind should have the right to marry whoever they choose, even multiple partners if they wish. Each state should recognize and respect the church's right to marry who they choose and in turn those state decisions should be respected at the federal level. So even though I disagree with homosexuality, I find it unconstitutional to deny their right to marry.

You make a valid point. The sanctity of marriage should only be ruled on by the church. It should be a religious issue. So why is the Federal Government even overseeing such an issue? The issue at hand is not marriage equality, but benefits equality. Insurance coverage, social security, tax benefits, etc. Seems like this is the issue at hand, and we should leave the churches to make such a decision for what their religious beliefs see fit. That's just my personal Opinion.

No, there is one person in particular on here who is always attacking someone this other particular person, especially their facebook posts. It's bordering on stalking.

So this entire forum was created just to pick on little oh you??? Boo hoo. It was discovered around 500 years ago that the world revolves around the sun, not you.

It would be fine for the church to deem who they marry but you have to file everything with the government. And what about civil ceremonies? Who would you propose should regulate them?

Gays should be allowed to marry!
They deserve to be a miserable as anyone else.

Instead of focusing on this, we need to spend more time discussing education. We need for our schools to stop wasting time on skills like cutting and pasting in kindergarten and focus on college readiness. I suggest that starting in nursery school all the teachers and administrators press and prod students to go to college. I wasn't told about the benefits of doing so and ended up on the bottle and haven't been able to kick the booze despite six stints in rehab, three DUI's and a prison term for armed robbery committed while bombed on bourbon. College is for everyone who doesn't want to end up as a mechanic or starving artist.

The government. Hell, they're the one who define "marriage," apparently. I guess they could force the churches to provide those. That's the next step.

What textbooks do we use to "educate" them? The conservative books from Texas or the liberal books from California? You have to choose. The Federal Government regulates education now.

I prefer Texas since I live here and most teachers do a damn good job of preparing their kids for the test. If the kids do well enough, they can enroll in a private college which is best in my view. My parents pushed me into enrolling at a state school and, although I liked it at first, it ended up being a nightmare for me. In fact, it turned out to be quite literally a pain in the butt. The roommate they assigned me was a deviant who was into all sorts of kinky activities. He persuaded me to engage in various homoerotic acts with him and his friends that left me high and dry. Eventually I had to see a counselor and a doctor to relieve my aching butt and repair my damaged psyche. So I'd encourage kids to think twice about slacking in school or they'll end up like me working for Redbox.

Not true. Marriage is not a religious issue, although many have chosen to make it so. If it were, then non-religious people couldn't get married.

Yes you are wrong. Marriage was created off of religious beliefs. Non-religious people today choose to marry under the religious tradition and are not normally criticized for getting married in a Christian church, as it is the Christian belief to not judge. If the government would recognize civil unions just as marriages, it would stay out of the religious realm. I hope this helps your understanding.

Not true. You can get married by a justice of the peace and it doesn't have to happen in a church.
