I will never support this! I will not go against the LAWS of GOD! One day each of us are going to be held accountible when we stand before our creator. We are to follow the LAWS of GOD not MAN!!!!! Marriage is between a man and woman- You are not born this way-you chose this lifestyle. Enogh said.
You are very right Lenda Lou....one day each of us are going to be held accountable when we stand before our creator.....and since you want to talk religion, remember this sweetheart.....IT IS HE WHO JUDGES.....not you. And before you run off at the mouth....get your facts straight......people are born gay....they do not chose to be gay. My God....the ignorance in this world is mind-blowing. And FYI.......I am a straight woman and you Lenda Lou.....you do not speak for all straight people.

I oppose gay marriage. God created a man and a woman to join and populate. If He would have created a man and a man or a woman and a woman we would not be here. Think of that. We are all born of a sin we must overcome to be closer to God.(just in case some gays say they were born gay)
Debbie.....what about a man and woman who cannot have children together??? What does God say about that? Why did God make it so they couldnt have children? Do you see my point.....
And just in case you havent read any medical journals lately.....people are birn gay....its not a choice. Why would anyone chose to be gay and have to deal with people like yourself. And I am a straight woman who is offended by straight people like you.

People are born a clean slate. They become what they are as a result of the experiences and situations they encounter in life, expecially during the formative years.

If you had a brain then you could tell.
And people are not born with clean slates. Like all sentient animals, humans have instincts and inclinations based on genetics. Maybe if you studied basic biology, or got out of your basement, you would know that. I have known this well before the 5th grade. How old are you?

God has nothing to do with equality. So much for love thy neighbor. Hopefully none of your offspring are gay. God help them!!!!!

Marriage is a basic civil right. No one should be discriminated based upon sexual orientation or race. Religious institutions should be free to have their own views when it is within their fold.

It is against the laws of God. God destroyed cities because of this sin. It is an abomination to Him. This country was founded and established on the belief of the one true God Jesus Christ. He is our protection for America. We break His commandments and allow perversion to be accepted as a way of life we loose His blessings on America.

Every known species of animal that has been put under rigorous scientific experimentation and sexual behavior observation is found to have homosexuality prevalent in their population. Sometimes as a minority (dogs, humans, reptiles), sometimes as an unexplainable same sec life partnership (bees, various insects, swans, geese, wolves, horses), sometimes as a completely bisexual non preference based amiguity (various primates and marsupials, humans as well as time marches on) and then the strictly homosexual majority (breeds of mountain primates, sea mammals, fish, etc.) Behavior starts with genetic coding and then iss modified by environment. Gay people existed when it was punishable by death. The entire history of homo sapiens has detailed evidence of homosexuality. It is a form of humanity. We are all born to be individals and if we all procreated, the world would be hell on earth quite literally from overpopulation. It would cause water wars, famine, chaos. Gay people are a form of population control that straight families benefit from. It is the way this world was created and I know that all of the small minded myopic biggots out there will certainly face the consequences for their single minded and self inclusive hatred policy. You are the types of people that created the holocause. You are evil and dangerous because you only think in terms if black and white. It is egomania at its worst. Gay people are getting their rights now and all the inaccurate bible recitations in the world cannot stop that. So, on a personal note, you say gay people are going to hell; well, we have been to hell and back (thanks to homophobic oppression) so many times and back we are stronger then the overprivileged majority. We know how to fight this battle and we will get marriage and constitutional equality, so just make peace with it already.

How you feel about something and what your religion dictates should never interfere with government and civil rights. If you are homophobic, that is your own problem. Quit making it everyone else's. The consitution says equality for all. Not equality for all those whom you agree with. This is The USA, not Iran.

How about you actually provide proof that the above happened. Thanks.
And keep your BS religion to yourself please. This is America, not Iran or Afganistan. Therefore I have every right NOT to obey your god.
