Well, old Jewish talmud law makers used to practice pedophilia and other disgusting things, I don't see why Jews shouldn't allow gay marriage.

Comparing old Jew circles practices during Jesus' time and Muslim practices during Mohammed's time, this raises an interesting question : Why would Jews today allow gay marriages but Muslims not?

Meaning of marriage is a tranquility with a spirit of love.In all religions, does't asked the couple about it when the ruling or the judge or who has the authority to marry? Why interject religion into this?
