Gays are humans with the same rights afforded all humans, especially under the Constitution of the USA. Religious bigots and homophobes should not dictate selective persecution and denial of basic rights vs. those guaranteed rights under the Constitution.

God ment for a man to marry a woman or a woman to marry a man. Not of the same sex.

Next we will be supporting animal marriages.

Glad to see you "Outing" yourself, do you feel better? You shouldn't refer to yourself as a "
queer", thats sort of old school and derogatory, just call yourself, "Gay"!

"OMG", you want to marry your dog? How did you get that out of treating humans as humans and giving them the rights guaranteed by the US Constitution, oh, you have no argument, just hatred! Are you still in the Klan?

As a Non-Denominational Minister of The Universal Life Church, I appreciate and I defineitly advocate Love and tolerance. As you all know, it is not our mission, place or responsibility as fellow humans to judge others. Although sadly, the making of snap judgementsit is one of our defining human characteristics. Especially when it is something that we either don't agree with, or do not understand. And yes we all have freedom of choice, whether it be for action or inaction. People only know what you tell them. And so be it if someone makes a life choice of their own free will. It is their choice. And it really is nobodys' business what others do behind closed doors or otherwise. Unless it is affecting you and your loved ones directly. And only you know and own your own level of tolerance, even if it is sparked by mindless gossip and created drama of shock. The shock that there are actually people within our sleepy little community that are making choices about their lives, on their own. It is not our responibility or place as individuals or a community at large to gossip or make news of the descrections or indescretions of other peoples sexuality to the local or world wide community. Really how often do you hear or read "Hetrosexual Couple Wed", or Take This Poll...
"Do You Support Hetrosexual Marriage?"
Is not the shock over with that we all live our own lives according to how we see fit ? So in closing, I can only pray that one day sooner than later the world at large will come to terms with the free will that comes with our earth bound existance. Either agree to disagree, or just accept the fact that you are only in control of your own lives. Please, from the words of a famous person...Love thy neighbor.

I am also a minister from the Univeral Life Church. Anyone can go on line and sign up. For an additional fee you can get your marriage kit. YOU ARE NO MINISTER WITH ANY SOLID FOUNDATION.

No one is sub-human, and no one should be treated like they are.

There are far more people in the world against any kind of marriage than against gay marriage. There are more unmarried adults in the USA now than married ones, and I agree.

Marriage ought to be outlawed. Simple contracts are good enough for anybody who wants to merge their financial or economic livelihood.

I've noticed that male homophobes are troubled by the thought of gay males, but they are intrigued by gay females?

God has turned you queer people over to a reprobate mind so you have no place to vote for a man to marry a man. You don't even see male animals having sex with other males.

After reading some good points and some pointless points. No matter what, after the lightening strikes and the thunder rolls there will be a rainbow illuminating our skies. People will go to church on sundays, farmers will be farming, haters will be haters, lovers will be lovers and each passing day the generational divide grows and grows. May peace be found in your heart. Now if you excuse me, I have to get back to listening to my radio shows that reinforce my thoughts and my television that pacifies my thinking....and at the end of my day head to my loving family whom I love.

How's your family?
