homosexuals should have a right to be allowed to be married. It seems that most of the United States can not seem to like each other or at the least tolerate one another. So a gay couple would like to get married. It's not like it is going to affect the heterosexual couples. And it idiotic that it seems people think that. I would like to be married to my girlfriend when I grow up, but with the way people are, I do not think it will ever happen. Its a shame, because of all this, of all these homophobes who can not seem to leave others alone, bashing homosexuals, bullying them to the point that they take their own lives. I am sometimes disgusted with humanity and my generation for it. Every person has a right to be who they wish to be, love who they wish to love and do what they wish to do. And the people who bash on others for it are nothing more than the scum of this earth. I pray that the next generation will be wiser and more accepting of others or this world will cease to function and exist. And we will be nothing more than a bunch of primates.

Many of them know it won't affect straight marriages. They are just being vindictive towards gays because it's a group they love to hate.

Gays should be the entitled the same rights as 'traditional' couples. I see no reason why they shouldn't be.

love is love no matter who shares it.

to think another couple's love is illegitimate or less pure than your own because a book says so is incredibly petty and narrow-minded.

Love is love. Should we really deny the rights of somebody who just happens to be attracted to members of the same sex?

You are misinformed regarding c/u being enough. The rites of a couple (be it ssc or hetero) joined under a c/u verses those under a marrige license are vastly different.
marriage offers federal protection and rites, c/u dont.
marriage is transferable state to state, c/u are not...
There are many more inequalities between c/u's and marraiges.
So change the civil unions so they give the same legal status. That's a silly argument.

Try again.

I have just as many queer friends with children as without. You are to effing stupid to know the difference in sexuality and sterility.

Gays need civil marriage with all the state and federal rights heterosexual couples take for granted. It doesn't hurt or affect straight couples nor does it take anything away from straight couples. It doesn't infringe on straight people's or a church's right either.
Historically hetero-couples **created powers**, they were not "granted rights". Recognize the difference? Should push=shove, and hetero-couples go about smashing-in the heads of thieving faaggboyz and lezzbozz perhaps those marriage powers would be more clearly seen.

Meanwhile stop bawling for the Gub'mnt tit ...

that is your problem, you thinking.
Honestly, does stating your sexuality really make your opinion any more or less valid? That's the scary part about this entire situation. You actually think YOU matter. It doesn't feel as good when you're put in that position does it? Your sexuality and your voice don't mean a damn thing. Just like millions of people who just want to live happy lives with their partners. The gross part of it is that your narrow minded opinion is what will be listened to and counted. When really you have no more right to tell me what to do with my life than I have with yours.

I am intolerant of fools in general and in specific sexual-devient fools like you. I also share JAX roads and beaches with rapist, muggers, pederasts and killers.

So you dislike harsh reality and wish to live a fairy-tale existence **supported and defended** by people who would rather see you promptly die off from some useful disease. Even in your dreamworld what's not clear?
