Gay marriage goes against nature. If ALL marriages were gay, the humans wouls eventually just die off. It is WRONG & immoral. However, I DO think gay couples should have rights to a legally partners ceremony, giving rights such as medical ins., next of kin after 2 years, like us, eyc.

Who are we to decide what is right and what is wrong. Until you are perfect, and no one is, look at yourself in the mirror and focus on your own foibles. For you religious zealots out there that quote the bible and interpret it in a way that suits them, I am fairly certain ours is a forgiving God. But then too, you probably think it is OK to commit adultery, just as long as you repent. People are people regardless of race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, BMI or anything else. When we start focusing on the similarities we share with others instead of judging them for their differences, perhaps then we will be able to say we are civilized. Until then, we are a bunch of knuckle-dragging Neanderthals. Its 2010 for crying out loud.

hey...if you don't like gay marriage blame straight people, they're the ones that keep having gay babies!!! lol lol

reality check....keep your religion to yourself and church...stop trying to mix it with our constitution and bill of rights!

Additionally you don't have the right to vote if I can or cannot have the same "privileges" as you any longer! This will be made very clear, I do believe, within the next 2 years by our Supreme Court. As a lesbian at age 56 I'm personally OVER IT! I'm sic of being the last class of people that can be discriminated against...illegally!!

So there!!! Coming to you for the giant redwoods of northern california...mendocino county...goodnight

Actually John, there are "gay" animals. Species from the African Elephant to house cats and dogs. There is a list of the variety of animals that display homosexual behavior. It is very prevalent in mammals, especially primates. Check it out for yourself.

I think that every one has the right to be who they want to be. It is not up to us tell others that they can't be homosexual. That is personal. I agree with Lenny and OldFatCyclist. You don't have the right to tell others who they should marry. Personally, I am straight. Don't hold that against me though. I think in this day and age we need to become more mature with our tolerances of others.

everyone should have the right to be happy. and that means they should be able to sleep with and marry whomever they want.

not interested in following this thread, but i will say people on both sides need to back down a little bit. regarding religion, I'm about as atheist about Jesus as Christians are about Allah, Vishnu, and Papa Ghede. BUT even without religion, playing devil's advocate, I can see the argument that homosexuality could be seen as simply a very common accident of nature, much like hermaphroditism. And I think at least by fessing up to this much, it would only help their sides intellectual integrity. I also think a civil rights themed event like those pride parades is not the time nor place for an almost pornlike carnival when the opposition is already calling you pervs.(I'm saying this as someone with a strong support for things like voyeurism, but..once again, time and place.)

NOW, on the gays side, it is not a 'choice'. Never has been. Fundies focus on sex because they are simply retarded. If a gay person is abstinent, they are STILL gay. Still not physically or romantically attracted to the opposite gender. meaning their only 'choice' is a life of being solo.(not counting a relatively FEW questionable 'conversions' who probably had at least SOME bisexuality or attraction to the other sex to start with) Even amongst scientists, the issue of homosexuality's origins has always been nature vs nurture and 'choice' was never a valid part of either side, as the nurture side entailed EARLY environment, as in preformative years. The 'pray the gay away' camps are a joke because the people doing it do not understand the issue. You'd be as likely to 'pray away' autism. These people are idiots

Create some other ceremony, if someone must, leave ours alone, it is a sanctified union between a man, a woman, and God! Keep deviant, abominable, destestable, sexual pervesions to yourselves, behind bedroom doors, in private! Don,t force your deviant, sinful lifestyle choices on our entire society!

You sin every day. What makes this specific and apparent sin worse than every day sins? Think about it.

WRONG. You have the internet at your disposal, I suggest you use it to look up your "facts" before posting them and making yourself look like an even bigger fool.
