Marriage is a civil right. Don't take away their rights. Who cares if two people of the same sex love each other and get married.

Lesa, do you believe in the separation of church and state? I do and therefore you comment is irrelevant to this.

You don't agree, that is fine and dandy, but to use religion as your only means to be against it is rather repugnant, shows you to be rather out of touch with society in general.

Give me a LOGICAL reason besides religion why you are against it. Don't give me your opinion.

I have not heard anyone that can give me a reason that is not religious based or their opinion.

If you say it is unnatural, my reply is going to be that over 300 species of animals have been documented in same sex pairings/relationships.

This is about civil liberties under the Constitution of the United States of America. You have a brain in your head. Will you choose to use it or will you follow the lead of someone else while blinded by their ignorance? I will let you decide that.

You have it backwards. There's no logical reason for homosexuals to marry.

Really you lose your rights when other people gain their rights? Hmm, I have to say besides the religious nuts hiding behind their bibles, that is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.

I love how you idiots pick apart the bible. If your so bound by your religion, your supposed to go by the entire bible not just what you want to hide behind for your hate. Here is a good one, Deuteronomy 22:13-21 A marriage shall be considered valid only if the wife is a virgin. If the wife is not a virgin, she shall be executed. Let's get to killin' some women..YEEE HAWWWW!!!! Oh, and Amen'

Another good bible passage DT 24:1 "When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house." The whole book of Deuteronomy really has a lot of fun stuff no bible thumper ever pays attention to. For instance DT 21:10-14 where god totally supports kidnapping your enemy's wife and having a trial run with her if you catch my drift. Or DT 23:1 which says that any man who's been injured in the jewels is forbidden from entering a church. Or DT 25:11-12 which says that if your wife helps you out in a fight, you should cut off her hand.

Nobody complains about people getting married as a prize on a game show, or when they're drunk in Vegas. It is interesting though because back about 60 years ago it was also "an afront to god" to have interracial marriage. But nobody talks about that anymore do they? Well, nobody but the Klan. Just like nobody talks about how there are 34 passages in the bible forbidding eating shrimp. So please, tell me more about how much power this book should have over my life. Everything else that's 2000 years old is still completely relevant today.
