In the begining God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve! God made marriage clearly between man and woman.....This is why nowhere in the bible do you see homesexuality approved, but always as a sin. Soddom and Gomorrah were examples of God's punishment for the specific sin of gayness....he will also punish the people who in our days live an immoral lifestyle and claim it to be normal. Just one more last thought.....even animals aren't gay and they don't have a morality, but people who are to have a morality are immoral becuase they have left God. So AMERICA REPENT, and RETURN BACK TO GOD, because if you don't you will be PUNISHED BY GOD'S HOLY WRATH FOR YOUR SIN!

If you allow it then you have to allow all kinds of marriage witch would get out of hand, marriage is just a word you dont need it to be gay.

Obama favors equal rights through Civil Unions for gays, not marriage. I agree with that. The two are not the same, they are different--one involves procreation and self sacrifice through child rearing, the other not necessarily so. Besides, gay community celebrates diversity, and civil union is different than heterosexual marriage. Why try to be considered same as heteros when celebrating diversity?

Excuse me, but obviously, you are not well-informed. You might not like to hear it but what you call as "gay behavior" is observed throughout the animal kingdom. The best example is the Bonobo of the genus pan, which use sexuality as a form of appeasement method within the group (gay contacts are numerous and frequent). It can also be observed in dogs and birds.
I would strongly recommend that you do a literature study. If you take the bible as your own reference I can understand your degree of misinformation, since these cases were unknown to the scolars that wrote the bible over 2000 years ago.

Have a nice day.

Besides the Bonobo, try huming birds as well. Hell, there isn't an animal that doesn't have some gay behaviour. Fact is: Homosexuality has been around as long as humanity has been around. Deal with it. As far as the Bible goes: Do you support divorce? Interacial marriage? Working on Sunday? All this is banned by the Bible. If all you're upset about is homosexuality: your a bigot. And you're using your faith to justify your hate. Which means you're NOT CHRISTIAN!

Religion is for the "weak minded" zealots and homophobes to justify their hatred and bigotry.

It is unnatural. Marriage is timeless concept that involves a guy and a gal. Call it what else you like but please keep some dignity for the institution of marriage

The bible is radical, with a God of Holiness! This word will judge us all one day for all our thoughts and actions. That is why I come to God as a sinner but through the Calvary and the Cross I become forgiven! Here is what it says very specifically about homosexuality…..
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites.
Don’t lie to yourself!God is Holy and none of our lives can ever math to his standards. That is why we can only come to him with the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Praise the Lamb of God! Praise Jesus! Praise my Creator!

religion is stupid. its always used to attack people and makes no sense. i done alot of research of many religions and the only one that sounds good is none. Atheism is the way to go. And gay marriage. i support gays getting married but it should be called something different. civil union, domestic partnership, just not marriage.

What good do gays bring to society? They can't even have children by natural means that God created from the first couple in the Garden of Eden. When I go to family reunions I see the beauty of family when my grandpa and grandma are surrounded by 50 grandchildren of theirs. When I am surrounded by aunts and uncles and all their kids, oh what joy and pride it is in big family.
God's intention for your life is FAMILY! It is the joy that you will never find in anything else. Sadly we see teenagers partying and having sex before marriage with multiple partners and then we wonder why divorce is so high? Why so much marriages fail? It's because we didn't play the game by God's rules and as a society have fallen into immoral sex (homosexuality and sex before marriage) and this is why why see such a destruction that has spiritually smiten us.
Young people keep yourself pure and dedicated for the one person that God intends you to be happy with! It takes effort by being sexually pure before marriage, but it's God's way for you to not get any sexually transmitted diseases and one day see your children bring joy to you and then your childrens children too.
Right now I am a 21 year old male who is pround of being a virgin. I could have lost my virginity many times, but because of God's grace and protection I am saving my self for a dedicated family life in which I will dedicate my self to a beautiful girl that will know that I kept my self pure only for her!

some gays are monogamous maybe most are maybe most are not

to comment on who people want to live with makes little sense,but it could be most arent happy

some just seem to be that way to be rebellious others seem to be lost into to just wanting the same sex and dont care no matter what

do you want laws stopping them like 50 years ago?

elton john is against gay marriage i think or thinks it means little

not true-meanness to the poor was
Ezekiel chapter 16
look up Sodom in strongs concordance
it says it WILL be more tolerable for sodom than hypocrites

I believe in equal rights. There is no reason two consenting adults of the same gender shouldn't be allowed to make a declaration of their love and commitment in all and exactly the same ways as people of opposite genders. None whatsoever. People have argued about the threat to "traditional marriage" and the "sanctity" of such, and I would happily point them towards Britney Spears, that Kardashian, and every other celebrity that has ever gotten married as a publicity stunt. People have argued about the asinine "slippery slope" of gay marriage leading to bestiality or pedophilia becoming legal, and I would say to them pay attention. "Consenting adults" is a key operative phrase here. Separate but equal is not equal, ask any person of color who's grandparents and great grandparents were made to drink out of separate drinking fountains, use different bathrooms and businesses, and attend different schools than white people. Loving and committed homosexual relationships have been around since the dawn of man, and in many cultures were accepted and celebrated in the same ways and with equal levels of respect as those that were heterosexual. This is a question of human rights, respect, and dignity. I hope Washington joins the ranks of those states who have already done the right thing very soon.

lulz tell that to that one Kardashian girl, Britney Spears, Kid Rock and Pam Anderson, Drew Barrymore, and Eddie Murphy, just to name a few. If you're worried about the 'dignity' of the institution of marriage, start talking to straight people.
