At least when they marry their marriages last longer than the straight. And no I'm not gay I just don't see where it is anypersons rite to judge and condemned them that's gods if its anyone's job its his. Its not like they are holding meeting to round and turn new people gay. Get over it and just leave them alone. How would you like it if someone attempted to come into your bedroom telling you who and how to have sex.
Oh relax, it's all behind you now. At least that's the way you people like it isn't it?

so no one understands the difference between public, secular laws and biblical laws. everyone wants to harp about their beliefs - and consequently, the laws - being attached to what they think the bible says or doesn't say.

in the constitution, we're all guaranteed the right to be treated fairly and equatibly under the laws. nothing dictates to you or anyone else what or how they should believe - and nothing will change that. however, the laws dictate how people act - so that they don't harm someone else or their property. the act of marrying someone does not harm anyone else - it has no impact upon anyone else other than the individuals entering the marriage contract. and that's what it legally is - a contract, a formalized agreement with legal boundaries and considerations to resolve differences and to protect the couple's rights and assets.
both DOMA and prop 8 have been found to be unconstitutional. there are several more cases involving DOMA as well that are going through the federal court system. eventually, both DOMA and Prop 8 will be overturned in the Supreme Court.

It's not a religious issue. It's about giving a person the RIGHT to marry who they love and receive every lawful benefit from it.

The rules of the bible are not the laws of the land. This is a nation which values freedoms rather than theocratic laws (sharia law, in Muslim lands). By Old Testament rules, a lot of things could get you stoned to death. The truth is, that this is a multicultural society, and becoming more so as time goes by. Why do you need the authority to tell someone else what to do? Convince them of you religion with logic instead of force. Good luck.

If America were only Protestant, white folks, we would have a massive shortage of qualified, skilled labor. We would have a glut of preachers and coaches. Our educational system would be broke and inefficient, while we as a society get fatter and lose our moral compass. Oh, wait...

Religious riots between Christians and Muslims or Christians and other Christians are a plague of other nations, not one in which society favors one group over all others. This isn't Belfast or Beirut. Yet.

Do you have an argument against gay marriage that isn't faith based? Are we running out of children, or something? We can't take care of the ones that we have!

Love is a strong emotion between two individuals. Man-Man, Woman-Woman, Man-Woman. Which ever it may be you love that person anyways. No one has any right to tell someone they can't love someone else.

Does the government have the right to tell a pastor what he can preach in the pulpit? No, why? Separation of church and state maybe? If religion has the right to dictate laws then the state should have equal right to dictate the biblical information delivered. You cannot scream one side with you don't allow the other. It's called being two faced. God hates sin, all sin, and he rates none above the other. Freedom of religion, freedom to bear arms, freedom of choice.
