It's so wrong, marriage is something special that only a man and a woman should be able to share, the way it is supposed to be. God made Adam and Eve NOT Adam and Steve. Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination....there it is LOUD AND CLEAR. it's in the bible. all over.
This is assuming your religious text can or should apply for the entire nation, which is actually unconstitutional.

It is less my support FOR gay marriage , than it is my staunch belief in the civil rights of all americans to live their life as they choose.

Persons of the same sex are considerable confused if they feel they "love" one another.. Marriage is for a man and a woman - period.
It's not that difficult to figure out.
If you're "gay" - get help.

Except most adult homosexuals are confident in who they are. The only time they have issues is if people like yourself continue to ridicule them and tell them they need help for something they (and the American Psychological Association and many other professionals agree) DO NOT need to be change nor should change. Studies have shown trying to change ones sexual orientation can actually be departmental to ones emotional well being because it can cause so much unneeded stress, self hate etc.
As for marriage being between a man and women, I can show you plenty of previous culture that accepted homosexuality and even embraced allowing marriage between them. For starters it was common in the Greek and Roman Empire as well as Japan.

New marriages are at an all time low. The state with the lowest divorce rate? Massachusetts. One of the first states to allow same sex marriage.

Let people love who they love. 72 day marriages are right but a loving relationship isn't? Do you really think God could every hate one of HIS creations over something so utterly uncontrollable? Think before you hate.

actually it was prohibited in the old testament for the same reason that male masterbation was; it spilled seed and wasted it instead of using it for procreation. it their religeon was to survive it needed it's practiciners to survive. come on guys, can't you see these old testament laws for what they are? essential at the time but when jesus ascended to heaven he said there are but two laws. love the lord god with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. so where is the confusion coming from? god doesn't care if you're gay. he cares if you beat up gays for being gay. love one another.

My son is gay and we have known it since he was about 4 years old. Children do not "choose" to be gay. Anyone who believes this has not been educated on the subject or has not known someone enough to form an opinion on this. We are his parents and we believe he has every right to be happy in love and life as everyone else in this world.

Gay's have the right to marry like everyone else. God judges those who judge others. We do not choose to be gay we are born gay.
