Everybody does not agree with you. If they did agree, this would be a dull boring world to live in.

If that is how you feel, I suggest you dont have it.

Now give us one example how SSM would adversely affect your life. I dont mean a "societal" issue as those are hypothetical at best. I mean what adverse affect would it have to you.

not nearly as sick as you apparently are!

And you're probably one of the first to accuse gay men of being too promiscuous, but does that happen before or after you attempt to ban their marriages?

There's no reason I (or anyone else) can say gay couples shouldn't be permitted to marry.

What you people don't realize is that your God doesn't make the decision as to what is right and whats wrong. Yes, sure, it influences your opinons.

What you don't realize is using religion in an argument is wrong. You go with the moral decision not personal beliefs.

You people who say you believe in God and yet follow a man-made book that someone has told you is made by God? It is contradictory.

Also, if anyone says being gay or gays being married is unnatural, think about our civilization. If God meant for us to fly, wouldn't he have given us wings? Everything we do now in our modern society is "unnatural" so I see nothing wrong with 2 men or 2 women loving each other.

Also, you religious folk have no say in who gets married or who doesn't. The law and government do. All you can do is talk to people about your religion, but it is wrong to push your beliefs on someone without a compromising argument that doesn't involve your religion.

tl;dr
People should stop being so damn religiously based and learn to love everyone and respect their wishes instead of being bigoted idiots.

Stop trying to limit the rights of others- if you don't like gay marriage, don't get gay married. It's none of your business what other people do!

[QUOTE who="l.k."]ALL people are created equal. God loves everyone equally. The Bible says a man should not lay with a man nor a woman with a woman. It effects everything in our society. Who is not to say next its ok for a grown person to have sex with a young child because they love each other. God made man and woman to be with each other to have offspring and families. It breaks the natural cycle that God had planned. I will not treat a person any different if i know they are gay. people are people. I just think it does more damage to what morals we already have. Just because u love someone doesn't mean it has to be a sexual relationship.[/QUOTE]
The difference between a gay relationship and a relationship with a child is that a child is NOT a consenting adult (even if they consent, they are not an adult). Men and women will continue to have families; gay marriage will not change that.

It's not a question of what 'God' has chosen to be naturally right, it's a question what is ETHICALLY and MORALLY right. Besides, in the United States, citizens can get a "civil marriage," meaning they can get married by a civil judge and do not need the approval of any religious organization. Under what grounds do you have the right to tell people what they can and can't do? Or tell them who they can and can't love? I'm not sure if you realize, but you do not "own" marriage.

By the way, to any Christian who believes that God "owns" marriage and says that it is only to be between a man and a woman, please educate yourself in Christianity. Thank you.

Homosexuals deserve all of the rights that heterosexuals have. There is no legitimate reason why they shouldn't.

People should be allowed to marry whoever they want. This whole "controversial" topic is so stupid. Boys can marry girls, boys can marry boys and girls can marry boys, or girls can marry girls. It does not matter. We are all human.
