Gay people are the product of heterosexual marriages.

"Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" is meant for all our citizens, not just those that some churches or nations approve. The Vatican is considered a nation and priests are taking orders from Rome, to work to deny American citizens the right to marry.

Children? Same sex couples are consenting adults entering into a committed relationship.

Like the guy who locked up his daughter in the basement or a shed behind the house for years? There are alot of sickos out there but very few of them are Gay. And what's any of that got to do with marriage?

I don't care if they marry as long as they don't do it in church. Now that's just disrespectful. I already have an issue with these catholic priests molesting little boys but I won't go there. People are just sick. That's disrespectful to the church too. Smh

No problem there. Your silly church holds no meaning for me. It's a place of hate and bigotry and really has no place in civilized society. It needs to go the way of the dodo.

A Church has the right to marry any couple it sees fit to marry........even a Same-Sex Couple.......and there's not a damn thing you can do about it!!!

Wow people are quite offended by my opinions lol. Anyway I know the church is hypocritical who doesn't know that. That's One reason why I mentioned the priests. Anyway I never said I would do anything about it silly Lmfao I was just giving my opinion. Just like you said a church has a choice you can't turn around and get mad if they don't let gay people marry. It can go either way. In my opinion its disrespectful because of what it says in the bible. Again MY OPINION. You can ignore it or roll with it. I could careless. I have nothing against gays I just don't like the idea of them getting married in a church. All I said. Smh. People get their feeling hurt to quick.

If they don't get married in a church they can get married at a courthouse. Either way you can still get married if a church does infact deny you.

We can get married outside a Church with an ordained Minister to marry us as well if we so desire........how we get married and by who is not a concern of yours......and no Church has EVER been forced to marry a couple they don't agree with!!!

Again showing your anger. I know all of this. I have gay friends and gay family members. No need to get so upset. And as far as how you get married and by who well I'm concerned because of what I've read in the bible but then again you're right its your business. I'm just saying what I'm saying because of what the church preaches. That is all. I don't mind if you get married. I just have a problem with it being religious. I know God Loves everyone. I know that but in the bible it says two cities were destroyed for foul things. Specifically men with men. It's what I was taught. I'm not here to judge you though I'm just saying I don't like it I have a problem with it. I'm not saying you can't do it. You can do what you want just like a murderer can kill someone I dont like it but that doesn't mean they can't do it. It happens everyday.
