the only people that worry about gays are gays... why look, is that a foot tapping Larry Craig republican I hear coming from above? Yeah, M.I. is educated and not likely divided by social conservative wedge issues, save that for the Mississippi republicans, the M.I. republicans are about $$$.

Marriage should be a secular right as it is granted certain privileges by the government. Fortunately for all, there is supposed to be separation of Church and State: therefore, the definition of Marriage has nothing to do with religious definitions that may be applied to the term.

Marriage should be everyone's right, to think otherwise is simply bigotry under the guise of religion.

Excuse me, I'm not gay but I support it. If that's your argument for why homosexuals shouldn't get married then you won't get far with it.

If you don't like agree with it, then you don't need to participate in it. But allow those rights to the people who really need it. "All men are created equal"... but not the gays. No, that's completely unfair. Heterosexuals can marry, so, according to the LAW, homosexuals should have the same rights. There, there's the answer right there. It's quite plain and simple, but we've made it far too complicated then it needs to be.

Everyone deserves equality. If you have a problem with gay marriage, just don't get gay married! Simple as that.

We all should have the same options. Just because heterosexuals can get married doesn't mean they all do, so if homosexual marriage becomes legal it will only mean that we will all have the same options, nothing more or less. Not every gay person will get married, and even if they do, what's wrong? After all, if I'm gay I won't make YOU marry me, no. I will marry someone I love and loves me. So don't make my personal life about you, because it's not. It's about me and the ones I want to share it with.

My best friend is gay, and saying that gay people aren't allowed to marry whoever they want is like saying they are a second class citizen. If you love someone, you should be able to be married. America is a place where everyone is supposed to be equal and have equal rights. But if America keeps being hateful and homophobic we are no better than a communist country or Hitler for that matter.

It's about equal rights. This should've been done a long time ago.

I'm afraid not.

It isn't a matter of problem or no problem, it's a matter of right and wrong. homosexuality is clearly and unequivocally wrong.
