Two atheists can go to the Justice of The Peace and have a civil marriage performed with NO MENTION OF GOD and be granted ALL the benefits of marriage. Over 1,150 federal benefits afforded married couples regardless of faith beliefs. This is why its called a civil marriage.

A gay couple can go to a Church for a religious marriage yet receive no civil benefits. Many mainstream Christian denominations support marriage equality and offer religious marriages yet don't have the right to offer civil marriage or it's benefits.

Marriage Equality is about allowing all couples to have equal protection and benefits in civil matters. It has nothing to do with one faith denomination beliefs over another.

I believe that each individual has a right to thier personal choice of sexual preference. It is not up to any of us to condem nor judge. It is so very wrong when you go to church & the human mere man stands behind the pulpit & condems you to hell for your sexual preference. That is simply wrong. Remember a genuine or a false & faking & professing man of God is short of anything but being human. So yes I definitely support gay marriage. Just because it is not for me does not mean it isn't for someone else. I would NEVER condem anyone to go to hell & any professing preacher or lay person should know better than to condem them to hell. In this case we as born again christians should pray for these impersonating men of God.

I think that it is beyond insane that it is taking this long to get people to understand we are just like them and will have the same rights one day they are just postponing the inevitable
