No, Marriage is something that was founded based on religion. It is a covenant between a man and a woman before god. I believe that homosexuals shouldn't force us to change our views. If they want marriage, stop being gay. It's that simple. A man and women only can make life. You have to have both, why aren't they suing the government because 2 women or 2 men can't make a baby? They can't do so with out the other sex. They are forcing others to comprimise. There are limitations to every lifestyle. Should Pedophiles be allowed to marry 10 year old girls? What is the difference. Should we change the laws so that it isn't illegal to have sex and then marry children?
I mean no harm nor condem homosexuals, I ask they they be the same. Don't bastardize something that I hold sacred.
I'm sorry. But you're not very smart. One can't "stop being gay." It's an innate part of their being. And it isn't even comparable to pedophilia in the slightest. There is no victim in a homosexual relationship. It is completely consensual.
Also, marriage was NOT created solely for religious purposes. First off, it served many different purposes depending on what society you are talking about. And usually that purpose was to have economic and social protections. Secondly, the catholic church (from which all other branches of Christianity came) did not name "Holy Matrimony" a sacrament until the 12th century. Until then, marriage in Christianity was simply the trading of women around for social and economic purposes (such as to bind families together)...
Today, the government recognizes marriage in America. It is ignorant and SELFISH to say that you believe that some couples shouldn't be treated equally under the law just because they are of the same sex. We are ALL human beings regardless of what sex we are.
