Purely and simply, the law (as it is now) is not fair. Straight people can marry who they love and we cannot. Anything outside of that does not matter. Our legal system is supposed to treat people equally. Making gay marriage a reality will be bringing us one, small step closer to that ideal.

Why are we losing this? Everyone who's opposing is probably just straight and won't even be affected by gay marriage, they shouldn't even care.

I understand that marriage is a religious institution. However, it has grown beyond that. Marriage provides legal benefits that everyone is entitled access to. To bar people from the rights granted only through marriage is unfair and unjustified.

If you think an abomination like gay marriage is good. Try telling that to the people of Sodom and Gamorrah. Its an evil abomination.
Arrogance and hate is an ABOMINATION. You should move to Sodom and Gamorrah if that's how you feel, I for one live in America where everyone has rights.

I am for gay marriage because human beings ontologically have dignity. They all have value and deserve respect. This means that all humans deserve the same rights, the same privileges. At that point the right of matrimony becomes universalized, and Gay marriage is is moral and true.

First of all, it should be obvious that we are all protected equally under the constitution. Additionally, we are granted the freedom of religion, and not all religions condemn gay marriage, therefore anything relating to "it's a sin" or "they'll go to hell" is completely irrelevant under American Law. It honestly won't hurt anyone and everyone has a right to love who they want, if you don't agree with it don't do it, it is in no way harming you. No argument against gay marriage is actually valid. Religious people protest but gay marriage is never mentioned in the bible any more than eating pig. Most religious people don't protest against bacon outside of supermarkets. Even if you don't buy the Bacon argument, there's always divorce, which is also considered a sin punishable by death, no more than gay marriage, and yet we are permitted under the law to divorce.
Most importantly however is that it doesn't harm people not participating in gay marriage EVEN IF all the religious arguments are true. I would write more but I'm out of space.
