sending out a mass mailing that
reached my mailbox asking for support.
I do not support their beliefs or request and hope it will never be granted.
How dare they push THEIR STRANGE beliefs on me.
Maybe Dr., you have an attorney friend you
can refer them to and draw up a "PARTNERSHIP" document.
SHAME ON THEM!!!
SHAME ON YOU Dr.!!!
I got a mailing from a cancer charity asking for money. Should we ban them, too?

Letting these two people get married will in no way change your life. If they each got married to opposite-sex partners it wouldn't change your life either.

I see you believe neither in freedom, nor equality. At least their "strange beliefs" deal with their own lives, and don't spread hatred, ignorance and bigotry upon others - something you are doing yourself.
Perhaps you should move to a nation that does not strive for freedom and equality (even if we do not yet meet those goals, for we still have many bigots such as yourself)
I am not spreading anything nor pushing anything on others.
It's the gays pushing THEIR STRANGE BELIEFS on others. I am not spreading hatred. I am voicing my opinion just like everyone else on this blog...THAT IS MY RIGHT!!!!
I am not sending out a mailing to them to believe in what I do.

You are correct in that you have the freedom to spread your bigotry. We have the freedom to call you out for what you are.

Although you spew bigotry, I respect your freedom to do so. A shame you do not do the same for others.

Who cares if it is "normal" or not? How does it hurt you? Most gays mind their own business. Why don't you mind your own?

Marriage is all about the government. Marriage is NOTHING MORE than a government-backed legal contract that grants the signers certain rights and requirements.

How about we take the RELIGION out of marriages?

I don't care what they do!!!
It doesn't hurt me at all.
I was minding my business in my home
till they mailed me a letter requesting me to go to the village hall in support of them.
I don't support them in their request to be "MARRIED" and did not go. Nor did I mail them a letter to their home expressing my beliefs.
Let them live happily together and have a "PARTNERSHIP" document drawn up....DO NOT CALL IT MARRIAGE!!!! THAT IS THE POINT I WAS MAKING & EXPRESSING.
I WAS NOT NOR AM I EXPRESSING HATRED.

Are YOU willing to give up your right to enter into a government-backed legal contract - aka marriage?

If it doesn't hurt you at all, then why do you care what they call it?
