It is against Gods will. Marriage is for a man and a woman.

It's silly to base secular law on what you think your imaginary friend tells you.

A "Legal Union" is one thing, where two parties join together and live in union with one another. Marriage is an entirely different animal. Marriage is between a man and a woman, always has been, always will be. A "gay marriage" is a legal union not a real marriage, never will be, you would have to change millions upon millions of minds to make it so. A law or judges ruling will not change that and does not make it true. You cannot make people believe it is the same thing, so why not stop with the stupidity of it all and challenge the system where you fit into it, not where you think you should fit.

So is the question here, "Do you support Legal Unions between two parties?" or "Are you against homosexuality all together?".

You're inability to spell shows that your opinions are most likely based on ignorance or stupidity. The general consensus from professionals, who (unlike you) make a living diagnosing the mind, is that homosexuality is not a choice.

Anyway, considering that all one has to do to get married is breath and be over a certain age, it's not really a "special" privilege. Considering the divorce rate among straights, they don't consider it that "special" either.

Obviously it is a special privilege. Seeing that it is sought after "right" among the gay community, they feel are under-privileged by not having the same right as hetro-sexual couples.
I agree something should be done as far a legal unions as another poster says but marriage is between a man and a woman. Our body parts are made differently and for the purpose of pro-creation, that is where marriage comes into play based upon children being born and families to ensure those entities are taken care of. Not because two partners for whatever reason it maybe, no children will be born of those two, no inheritance.

Well you made 2 mistakes genius, since you want to call others stupid. You screwed up your 1st word and it's breathe, not breath. Some liberal idiots told you you're gay, and you believed them. No one has ever scientifically proven homosexual behavior isn't a choice. It's just a deviant lifestyle and political movement, nothing more.

Marriage is not biologically based. It's a social construct and society recognizes gays as equal to straights. There's no real reason to bar gay marriages, and time is against the conservatives on this issue.

Um, yes, it has been shown the brains of gay men and women are different than those of straights. So ... it's not a choice.

You're starting to sound silly when you throw out paranoid fear about liberals and that sort of thing. Why don't you mind your own business and leave the gay people alone, that's essentially what they want.

Marriage was based biologically based in its inception in order to provide to families to whom children were born. That was the origional intent of marriage. The reality of time and evolution has brought us to this debate as to whether or not it is now a social contruct, but it has yet to happen as society is beginning to recognize gays as equals. The equality you are referring to is a gay person as an individual being equal to straight people. Generally speaking, society is only now beginning to accept the fact that some people are gay.
Time is a factor against conservatives but unfortunately for the gay community, acceptance moves slowly not quickly. The more an issue is forced, the less the acceptance, the more the resistance.
From the viewpoint of a couple of friends of mine, a gay couple, and their take on gay marriage, which is partly where I draw my conclusions (paraphrased):
When you have to add a word to a word to make something fit, it shows the reality of the situation.(Gay marriage as opposed to marriage), we have enough resistance and just want to be left alone to live our lives, we don't need the drama. As with most gay people, a lifetime of fighting to be who you are creates this false sense that everything is a battle and everyone is against you, most of our gay friends have learned to love the drama. It would be great if I did not have to worry about (partners name) recieving everything I left behind should I die without having to go through all the legal mess but I have set up provisions so that it will work out actually better than your marriage.
He goes on to say a lot about the drama queens who love to draw attention to themselves rather than just take care of the business at hand and that most marriages are failures anyway.
There are multiple arguments on both sides of the coin, is what I'm saying. It is an uphill battle and will remain so for probably our lifetimes. Even if it is allowed by the courts and states, people do not have to accept it as so and it may backfire on the gay community. With privelge comes responsibility.
