The real abnormalities are bad marriages, bad parenting and being unable to face reality with any degree of maturity and without the usual crutches ; abnormalities that are only too common , unfortunately ..

Geez, when is the media and other idiots going to get it right.......there is NO such thing as "GAY" or "SAME-SEX" Marriages.......what we have is just a Civil Marriage that involves someone of the Same-Sex.....just like it is a Civil Marriage when it involves an opposite-sex couple.......plain and simple!!!

There must not be a NOM-like group in England (lucky them). NOM is still fighting and would like nothing better than to overturn marriage equality in places where it is already law. As are the other groups and their leaders who depend on a continuous fight for their very paychecks (FRC and Tony Perkins, Peter Sprigg, etc.). But I see that NOM is now turning its sights to foreign countries where their message may be more welcomed, like Russia.

A gay couple and a straight couple are not the same, not equal. No matter how much you want to be like a straight couple you never can be.

Reminds me of Kleenex. Some people buy Kleenex at the supermarket, some people buy the store brand and call it Kleenex. Only one is Kleenex, the other is just tissue.

Of course they are. Same love. Same commitment. Same comfort. Same support. Same blessings. Same ability to raise wonderful kids.

Exactly the same in every way that matters.

The difference is only in your mind, thank goodness.

There's no need to specify "civil" either. Same-sex couples can have religious marriages in many places too. It's just marriage. The point is that it needs to be legally equal regardless of the genders of the partners, just like it needs to be legally equal with regard to other distinctions such as the race or the religion or the financial standing or the political affiliations or the ethnic backgrounds of the partners.

The difference is in our children. To us, children matter.

You believe that our children DON'T matter? Such comments make you seem irrational.

And we care about your children, too. We understand that gay kids growing up in a household like yours will suffer. We understand that bigotry, ignorance, and suspicion need to be taught early for it to catch, and we want to protect children form that.

It's your sort that promote harming kids.

You want gay kids to be tormented in school,,and grow up to be self-hating closet cases. You want the children of gay couples to have unmarried parents.

The harm your sort does to children is immense. And you are proud of it.

Like I said - irrational.

I would say that there is far more difference between how individual couples care for their children than there is between how opposite-sex, female, and male couples care for their children.

Sorry, but I DON'T want to be a straight couple or like a straight couple....and yes, the two couples are equal UNDER the law...in fact both types of couples are even issued the EXACT same Marriage license in Massachusetts, right?

Oh and don't pull the natural procreation argument because it is irrelevant to the discussion!!!

There you go again. Not understanding my comments make you seem irrational. Try to think like a normal person without putting a f'd up gay spin on your every thought.

Children also MATTER to us......again, a child needs stability and a loving environment.....that can come from any two-parent family unit, or even a 1 parent family unit.......but it doesn't mean it has to come ONLY from mom and dad!!!

Actually, we need LESS children because humans are overpopulating the world and wiping out other life forms, and in general destroying the environment. Did you know that certain species of Great Cats will go extinct in our lifetime because of overpopulation and our wanton destruction of these animals and their habitats ?

Humans are the WORST thing that ever happened to this planet.

What difference do children make? Do you think that preventing gay people from marrying will somehow prevent gay people from raising children? Marriage or not, there will still be gay couples raising kids. How are those kids helped by preventing their parents from marrying?
