So it is ok to take away medical rights, custody rights, and tax benefits because they are gay? Civil unions do not provide any of those benefits and unlike marriage most states will not transfer a civil union, they have to apply in the new state.

not the natural order of humans. Next they will want parental rights which brings up the question of "nurture or nature". But this could be an emotional trauma to the child by their peer group.

Judge not lest you shall be judged.
Why is it that people who call themselves Christians choose only to focus on one small area of the bible while they ignore all the other areas? It is not your place to judge anyone. It is not your place to vote on how other people live their lives! I believe you should defer judgement to the god you claim to believe in, though your words would seem to indicate that you do not believe. Learn not to hate. learn not to judge. Respect all people!

Gay Americans should have the same rights to pursue their happiness as others. It seems that when this issue comes up, marriage is held to some very lofty standards that straight people, who can marry whom they want and as often as they want, don't have to meet.

I've read the bible, well as a Christian we sort of just focused on the New Testament. which to my hazy recollection says something along the lines of do unto others as you would want them to do unto you. but you go ahead and tote the law book from thousands of years ago that also says some zany things. you go, you guys.

Lol, ever heard of a secular government? You people disappoint me, you can't outlaw same-sex marriage by the principle of religion (Maybe you should read the first amendment).

Same-sex marriage, like the illegalization of slavery ONLY 1.5 centuries ago, is long overdue.

What people do in their own private business is their own issue, and it's not a special right, it's called EQUALITY.

Christians should remember the equality rule, because if it weren't for equality, actually preference, they would have not ascended as the state-sponsored religion of the Roman Empire.

But then again, most of you Bible thumpers don't know history, go figure.

The bible also says slavery is alright, you can sell your children, and that women are to be seen and not heard. You cannot pick and choose stuff out of the bible, you either believe it all, or don't believe any of it.

Love is love, no matter your gender or sexual orientation. We're all humans, and we all deserve love, and in my mind, marriage is supposed to represent love.
