Love is absolute. I think its BS that two people who hate each other or get married for a child have more right to get married than two people who genuinely love eachother.

Wrong doesn't stop straight people from marrying and committing adultery, which is a sin. Wrong doesn't stop straight people from having sex outside marriage, which is also a sin. Yet no one stops straights from marrying. Wrong doesn't stop straight people from having children they beat or molest. Yet any child abuser or pedophile can marry and raise children they will soon devour. When half the straight marriages end in divorce how can any straight person say marriage and family are sacred institutions when even straight people no longer behave as if it is? Gay people aren't half the threat as the evil people you work with and go to church with who lie 24-7 about who and what they are about. http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/home/51265045-76... #

It's all based on acceptance. And it's 2012 people, stop acting like it's not and everything that's different than you is horrifying.

I am 14, why should the lgbt people be striped of their rights, just because they are 'diffrent'? Did MLK jr, not teach the USA anything? We are all people, love is love no matter the gender. Why do we keep hating? That takes us no where. How many more teens have to kill themslefs because they are told by the goverment and churchs that being gay or lesbain is wrong? We need change.

If homosexuals can't have the right to commit to their partner, I don't believe that man and woman have should have the right to divorce.

I think that we should all have the freedom to be ourselves. I support same sex marriages because we can't help who we fall in love with. Our hearts desire what they do. Love is love..man & woman, man & man, woman & woman. There are so many male-female relationships that fail. We should all have equal rights to marry the one we love! I am a straight woman and my husband and I completely agree on this matter!

The same sex marriage issue isn't about freedom, the issue is rewriting marriage law for everybody. LGBT have the right to associate, cohabit and have a religious wedding ceremony in every state. Polygamists can't do that because polygamy has been criminalized by congress.

Haven't you heard about Christian wedding vendors sued for not participating in same sex wedding ceremonies? Where's the tolerance and freedom?

Everyone deserves love. Everyone. I understand that some may not believe it is natural, and ya know, real American's reject unnatural things; like heart surgery and air conditioning. I understand that some believe Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay. Honestly, it does, just like if you hang out with a tall person, you grow taller. I have heard that legalizing gay marriage will open the door to other crazy behavior, like marrying a dog or something. It has been argued that straight marriage is sacrosanct, and we need to keep it that way. Especially for people like Brittney Spears, Arnold Shwarzenegger, Tiger Woods, and the countless other celebrities, and Americans, who hold their vows in such high regard. Particularly because marriages' basic principles haven't changed-ever..ya know, like, women are still property, African-Americans still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal. Then again, every child still needs a mom and a dad; that is why being a single parent is illegal. I would love to go on and on, but my point has been delivered.

Layton, should definitely show that it has the ability to be progressive, and start Utah on its way to joining the 14 states that allow gay marriage. Even if biased opinions and supposed facts against gay marriage could hold any weight, in the end why is it any of their business?

Utah wasn't permitted to join the Union until they outlawed polygamy; we don't have to go that route with same sex marriage. We can simply keep the ideal standard of one man and one woman marriage, for the sake of diversity and integration.

Same sex marriage is sex segregation marriage.
