God created us man and woman in his image. Adam joined with Eve. That was the plan, Stan. Don't moan about it, Joan.

Atheists are allowed to marry in a civil union. We don't bring religion into the equation with them so why do we do it with the "gay" community (gay was such a good word that has now been given such a negative meaning)? I see no difference except many "gay" people are religious and have their own relationship with God so who are we to question it? In Texas we have common-law marraiges. These people are living in sin by religious standards but we still recognize their union. Again why the difference?

Equal rights: Denying marriage to same-sex couples removes from one group a fundamental, important human right -- the right to marry the person that one loves and to whom one has made a commitment. That is unfair and unjust in a democracy.

although marriage is a legal sanction, If you're arguing against gay marriage from a biblical perspective, here are some things to consider about taking the bible literally. Use kindness, use common sense, use compassion...practice what you preach....and make sure your own family is happy and healthy and content before telling others how they are allowed to live their lives...in case you forgot....."Judge Not"...

DEUTERONOMY 22:13
If it is discovered that a bride is not a virgin, the Bible demands that she be executed by stoning immediately.

DEUTERONOMY 22:22
If a married person has sex with someone else's husband or wife, the Bible commands that both adulterers be stoned to death.

MARK 10:1-12
Divorce is strictly forbidden in both Testaments, as is remarriage of anyone who has been divorced.

LEVITICUS 18:19
The Bible forbids a married couple from having sexual intercourse during a woman's period. If they disobey, both shall be executed.

MARK 12:18-27
If a man dies childless, his widow is ordered by biblical law to have intercourse with each of his brothers in turn until she bears her deceased husband a male heir.

DEUTERONOMY 25:11-12
If a man gets into a fight with another man and his wife seeks to rescue her husband by grabbing the enemy's genitals, her hand shall be cut off and no pity shall be shown her.

If we put the above into practice I think we're talking zero population growth at some point...come on people....this is 2012....get over it and concentrate on how you can help those who need food, a home, health insurance, companionship.

Stop picking and choosing your "godly path" to fit what you think is right....You either are Godly or your not...you either are loving and kind and non- judgmental or your not...so you either condemn all the "sins" as shown above or you don't....and before you decide...be careful...either you or someone you love may have slipped and had one of the above applied to them....Glass houses...be careful....

I've got better things to worry about than what other people, complete strangers no less, are doing or not doing with their genitals.

I don't see what would be wrong with it. If you don't like it, don't do it.

If Kim Kardashian is allowed to to have a PR stunt wedding that crumbles in under three months, while people that have enriched our lives and culture as a whole, people like Michael Stipe and kd lang, are forbidden to marry then the whole institution is a joke.

Everyone should be treated equal. It's not very hard if you think about it.
