Just because someone supports gay marriage doesn't mean they are gay.

Hey Fagg@t, that will NEVER happen.
Because it affects you HOW? Easy answer: it doesnt. If your marriage is threatened by marriage equality, your marriage has bigger problems than marriage equality.

And should you be itching to use the religious argument, your church has NO place to tell MY church they cannot marry gay couples, just as my church cannot tell yours you must. But look which side is trying to force beliefs on others? It certainly isn't ours.

Get with the times, bigot.

Its funny how people want to say that gay marriage is wrong according to the bible but think it is OK to have tattoos, commit adultery, lie, cheat, steal or divorce. Perhaps you closed minded people should read the whole book instead of a verse here and there.

Like the parts that if you lose your virginity before marriage or you commit adultery, it is punishable by death. Lol other parts that if a man is disfigured and stuff like that, they are to be denied before the father. People never mention these things. Lol

Gays don't want special treatment, they want to be treated the same. Idiot...

It's not exactly a special law. It's like when mixes races couldn't marry and now they can. It's taking out discrimination pretty much. Every deserves to be miserable like the straight ppl. Love is love and a law shouldn't get in the way of that. Just because the body parts are the same shouldn't mean shit. Equality for all!

No it's not. You have the same rights as I do. I can't marry another man either. You perverts just want to change the law to appease you.
What does being a pervert have to do with marriage? Are you really not that intelligent? Marriage is not about sex, its about commitment and love. Wow...

I'm surprised Huntington isn't in there. It's the GAYEST place I've ever lived. I lived there a couple of years, and it was teh BEST time in my life. It's a VERY GAY city.

This is good news. And Jethro, you may want to take your hatred elsewhere. Name calling has no place in effective debate.

Nope, huge difference. What we believe takes rights away from NOBODY, but ensures a community has the rights they have always deserved.

Your version of what is right takes away rights from others, while keeeping them for yourself.

Example: marriage equality would allow my church to marry gay couples, but never force others to do the same. However, conservative Christians feel it's right to impose their beliefs onto our churches. That's wrong.
