Marriage shouldn't be a privilege given only to heterosexuals. Gays and lesbians (along with all in between) have as much right to love one another and marry as does everyone else. And if it's legal for a 20 year old to marry a 80+ year old millionaire to inherit their fortune once they die, or for a celebrity couple to get married then divorce within a 24 hour period, then what is so wrong with a committed same sex couple wanting to spend their lives together? Oh right, your ancient, man-produced book of contradictions explains why it's "wrong". My apologies.

You are the idiot. It's not about "all" a person can find; it's about finding the ONE person they LOVE. Is love a foreign concept to you? What about sexual attraction (since that's what this sexuality thing is about)? Is sexual attraction foreign to you? Open your fucking eyes. How old are you? With a name like "Bob," you're either 1) really old, or 2) going by a nickname. But if that really is your name, how can you live to be so old and remain so ignorant?

Do not equate the love a human has for another human to the love of a small-minded twit to a horse. Shut your mouth and take your mediocre, anti-gay justifications elsewhere.

LOL

If you mean "homosexual marriage, then say what you mean instead of parroting some meaningless slogan.

There's an obvious difference here. If two consenting adults wish to marry, they should be allowed to. A horse is obviously an animal, not a consenting human. Sarcasm really isn't making your case here.
No ???

The homoze want to re-define marriage to include two men or two women. huhhhh wants to re-define marriage to include a human and a horse. I don't see much difference.

"jacob" do you like fudge packing? or carpet munchen? I'd feel safe to bet my money that you aren't for the opposite gender.... Something tells me that you bat for the same team.......
I find your post very offensive. It doesn't matter what gender a person goes for, it is between them and their higher power to work out. God is the only one who can judge us. I have friends who are gay and I'm not a fan, but it's their choice. I am in a heterosexual relationship but I've always straddled the fence. Nothing more beautiful then the woman's body, weather it is my own or someone else's. Again, it is MY CHOICE...

Marriage equality, it's simply the right thing to do, and it hurts no one.

BS! Gay marriage is destructive to family values and Gods law. I read so many postings here and everywhere where people try to twist the words of the bible to suit their lifestyles or agenda. First of all marriage is Not a right or a 'civil union', it is a "Sacrament" given to us by the "Grace of God"! The bible clearly states marriage is a union between a man and a woman. It also mentions homosexuality and its demons. Is it just coincidental that male and female parts work together to create life?? If you want to use the bible and God to support homosexuality you have to twist the words of the bible or do like the states and simply remove God and we've seen how well removing God from schools has worked, ie mass shootings, etc. We are ALL sinners, God has given us free will to make our own choices. If you want to be gay, be gay, and sin in privacy, no need to be "IN YOUR FACE" towards everyone else. Whats next, the right to masturbate on main street at high noon...

Sodomy spreads deadly disease and abortion kills people.

Not coincidentally, sodomy and abortion are 2 recognizable lifestyle activities of queers.

Queers promote sodomy and abortion as a virtue.

If you do queer, you are queer.

BTW.... God does not condemn homos, God condemns the act of homosexuality.

Leviticus 20:13: If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.

Genesis 19:1-7: The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, and said, "My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant's house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way." They said, "No; we will spend the night in the street." But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; and they called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them." Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, and said, "I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.

Romans 1:26-27: For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.

1 Timothy 1:8-10: Now we know that the law is good, if any one uses it lawfully, understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, immoral persons, sodomites, kidnappers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine.

Jude 1:5-8: Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day; just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. Yet in like manner these men in their dreamings defile the flesh, reject authority, and revile the glorious ones.
