It's not that I support "gay" marriage. It's that I support MARRIAGE and believe everyone has a fundamental right to marry who they want without regard to gender.

It's a matter of equal rights for all Americans.

Wouldn't let me vote. I support the right to marry for all US citizens. It's simply a matter of equal rights for all.

Eventually, the legal issues regarding these relationships (no matter what term you want to apply) will have to be addressed. Whether someone agrees or disagrees, ignores or not, there are serious legal issues that must be addressed in regards to property, money & inheretance as well as end of life decisions.

Marriage or union as long as they share all the same rights and privileges.

It's against the law of God. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah?

Bible thumper. what about those in the population that don't choose to believe the same as you? There's a larger and larger portion of the population that aren't in agreement in your assumption. Case in point are the growing number of churches that not only embrace and welcome homosexuals for who & what they are, but also will perform unification ceremonies in their churches. Of course, that's not counting the growing numbers of atheiests and agnostics in our population. You choose to blindly ignore their views and expect everyone to live by the rules you think are "moral"?

if thats the case, then work on divorce laws and a whole host of other laws that don't necessarily agree with some church's "rules".

you 'christians' seriously need to actually READ the bible for yourselves, instead of spouting what you hear from your preacher/bigot/politician/repu blican leaders. the sins of sodom had little or nothing to do with sexual abominations. Yahweh destroyed them NOT because of homosexuality, but for the reasons listed in Ezekiel Ch. 16, specifically 16:49-50. Kinda makes you wonder if we aren't guilty of the same thing today, and then you wonder why the world is going to sh!t.

while you chrisians are at it, actually read what Jesus himself says in Matthew 5:17 and then tell me that the old covenant laws are abolished. i will keep not eating pork and trying to keep the REAL sabbath, while you guys can be least in the kingdom of heaven.

Sorry, I'm not old enough to remember Sodom and Gomorrah, but I don't think God is registered to vote in this jurisdiction anyway nor do I believe he/she current on his/her taxes and child support.

Because it should be about love and not sexuality. Take the sexual part out and nobody would care. But, Bottom line, does public display of Gay sex disturb young children. ANSWER = YES. Protecting young children to build a moral compass is way way more important than a loud proud group that shouts louder than the rest and quite possibly would have a higher Divorce rate.

Legal Domestic Partnerships with Rights, Benefits and Ceremony = YES
Marriage = NO

Everyone has the right to the same life. Next thing it will be ppl with black hair can't marry, or ppl with blue eyes, or dog owners. It is none of the government's business who is married to whom.

I am a 56 year old mother and grandmother. My daughter and granddaughter have both been raised in the belief that love is a GOOD thing, regardless of who you are. My 6 year old granddaughter would not be aware that PDA between two people of the same sex is even something to be disturbed by. She has not had that drilled into her head by churches or by narrow minded bigots.God has nothing to do with our laws or our government. They apply to us all equally, or should be. It is not up to us to pass judgment. Read your bible and try to live your life as Christ intended. Keep your religious beliefs out of MY government.

Please, a Bro That Knows has no room for fake "oppression" and what not. Homosexuals and pedophiles continually try to equate their plight to that of the down-trodden blackman in America. STHU you homos & Peds. You're Homo by choice. A blackman in America isn't here by choice, he was drug here against his will and used for his muscles by evile white men and used for his sexual appendage by evil white women.

That's a fact, and it's been spoken by a Bro that Knows!

Oh goody I found a small enough forum with some readers. Homosexuality is at it's base, an ultimate form of masturbation. But, there are genetic homosexuals that must be understood, cared for, nurtured and allowed to bond with those who can make their lives happy. The flaming Gays by lifestyle and perversity are those that cannot become part of the natural order of the universe are are destined to become miserable humans. There is nothing sadder than a homosexual spurned by a confused (naturally so) lover. The guilt and depression must be debilitating.

What is really happening is the Globalist Rothschild Banking Cabal is successfully destroying the social structure of the "goyum" American Christian nation with wedge issues, ie.. Abortion, Gay Marriage, Political Polarization, Immigration and my favorites; MADD to destroy socialization and drinking, Big Pharma funding anti Drug programs. Rothschild cabal network owns our government at the highest levels, banking system, especially the Federal Reserve which is a major cash influx from all slave taxpayers, FOX, CBS, NBC, ABC, Disney, all media, Cargill, ADM and Monsanto who controls and are weaponizing your food with GMO and on and on, jeez !!!
3 generations of Bush delivered America back to London and we are seeing the destruction of the middle class.

You might as well Live your Life Today, Never Back Down, hold on to the John Wayne - Charlton Heston America.

Warburg's treasonous betrayal in creating the Fed Reserve in 1912, Stock Market bust in 80s, the Dot Com bust in 2000, Goldman Sach's Derivatives, Cheney's Policy for a New American Century and it's 9/11 coupe d'etat. Just watch Micheal Moore's New movie Capitalism and then this Gay thing becomes redundant and you realize it's all of us against them.

Tomorrow has already been bought. With a nation of divided whiners, it is easy to make slaves of the useless eaters.

Weeeee, that was fun..........I think I'll go down to Oilcan Harry's and buy some Gay dudes some shots and talk about women.

I've been taught to "Love the sinner but to hate the sin".

I truly believe that prayer is the answer to all problems in this life. We should not only pray for ourselves and our families but we should also pray for all of our earthly brothers and sisters.

So when did you make the choice to be heterosexual? Can't believe how many morons there are out there, and they justify their ignorance by the bible. How hard is it to just live your life with tolerance and kindness and not judge others?
