I believe the Biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman.

I would recommend not having a gay marriage, then. I, however, don't believe in your bible, so it has no jurisdiction in my life.

The bible says divorce is wrong, too, but it is not illegal in the US.

People's private lives are none of your business and the US is not a theocracy; religion should have nothing to do with making laws.

we hear Gays say over and over,that thier sexual preference is genetic (born that way)...and have no choice. I am not sure this is correct, but even if homosexuality is genetic, a person still has a choice on whether or not to act on those feelings. A pedophile, a rapist,a practitioner of incest, a murderer or a thief all might be genetically predisposed of those conditions but he or she makes the CHOICE on whether or not to act on those cravings.
Before you make up your minds to accept this perversion,let me say this... I do not hate homosexuals, I simply pray that they will repent of their sins and find their way back to the path of righteousness.
Raping is forcing a person to have sex. Murder is killing someone. Being gay means you are a normal functioning human being that likes others of the same sex instead of the opposite sex. It is a very simple concept. If you think a man such as myself loving another man is equally wrong as me killing someone, then you are insane.
If you choose to believe in a god and follow a gods word then you have every right, and no gay has a problem with that. So therefore you should respect gays and their choice to marry. Just like a family can choose to practice Islam or be vegan. People have rights to be themselves.

I am all for the protection of people's beliefs, but that protection should only go so far until it impedes upon someone else. People are always complaining that gay marriage goes against their beliefs, but you shouldn't protect one person's rights just to deny another. And seriously, if you don't like gay marriage, don't get married to someone of the same sex. Not legalizing gay marriage isn't going to stop people from being gay, and legalizing it isn't going to make everyone gay.
One of my biggest problems with the argument against gay marriage is that most people's reasons for disapproving of it is religiously based. The US is not a theocracy, and religion has should have absolutely NOTHING to do with making laws. Stop using it as a reason.

If you believe in what the Bible says then you should respect the opinions of others. I think its absolutely stupid how people have the audacity to impose their "Bible hatred" on other people in order to promote this "separate but equal" on gay rights. The bigotry that lies in this state....utterly Reprehensible

You're facts are all wrong, pedophiles and rapists are either encouraged by someone or something to take in the harmful behavior. Homosexuality on the other hand is given through prenatal occasions , some saying genetics. Nobody chooses a lifestyle where they are hated and bullied or killed for. By the way, the Bible was written 80 years after Jesus was crucified meaning that two generations after Jesus, man, NOT GOD, took his words and made it into a book of moral codes. Also, the Bible contains several indications that divorce is completely sinful, if you say homosexuality is sinful, you might as well penalize those who've been through several divorces. But thats obviously not happening, which means you should quit juding homosexuals as sinners based on what your ignorant version of the Bible says. GOD made human being and since he created gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. He obviously wants them on this Earth. Btw, judging others for the wrong reasons and harming others based on ignorance wont serve you well

I dislike how it's always about religion in this country. If you believe it will mess up family values, you're wrong. It doesn't turn the child into a homosexual. They live normal lives like any other person.

Plus, being gay isn't unnatural. It's not a choice. If it was a choice, then isn't being straight a choice too? You DON'T decide to be gay. I didn't wake up and decided that "I'm gay."

Maybe you, opressors, hate LGBT people because you FELL IN LOVE with the same sex and got hurt in the end. This doesn't give you the right to bash us or treat us like second classes citizens or a contagious disease.

I've read a lot of your comments, and I think I love you - but only if you are as pretty as Antinuos and as wealthy and talented as Hadrian. We could get married in the Pantheon...

I think it shouldn't be called marriage, because marriage is a Christian ceremony between a man and a woman, but yes, I do fully support equal rights between straight and homosexual couples. Who are we to make the decision whether they should be happy or not? Let them make their own mistakes, just as straight couples do.

God doesn't care what people are doing in their bedrooms as long as no one is harmed. He's got genocide in Africa to deal with folks! He's not concerned with petty bullshit. Get a clue you bible thumping hypocrites.
