Gay Marriage undermines the official definition of marriage between a man and a woman. Since they changed the marrigae rules for same-ex couples, they will have to change it for everyone. What is 3 people who love each other want to get married? They have the right to, so now you have to leagalize that. That what I'm saying, they should have left the marriage laws the way they were.

Every human being has a right to happiness. Anyone who tries to impose this, is evil.

No. Marriage is between 2 HUMAN BEINGS. Just because people of the same sex can't pro-create, doesn't mean they can't get married. Many couples get married with no intention of ever having children. What's the difference??

if this is true, then 'American Idol' should have been taken off the air a long time ago

IT IS ONLY RIGHT THAT PEOPLE WHO PAY THE SAME TAXES TO SUPPORT THIER GOVERNMENT ENJOY THE SAME RIGHTS AS ALL OTHERS.

I think the thing I don't understand about this whole debate is why there is such a fuss. What difference will it make in your life if gays were allowed to get married? I'm thinking that those that oppose don't have friends that are gay so the odds are they won't even know someone who is gay that wants to marry anyway. Gay couples live together now, so again what difference in your life will this make?

I get the whole religious aspect of this debate. I'm not a religious person but I would think that a union with love involved has to be better than some of the marriages that are out there with couples who despise each other.

It's funny that some people who often use religion to oppose gay marriage show no interest in God, otherwise. When I hear people who are either aetheists or who believe in God but not religion and religious beliefs say "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve." I wonder how something they don't believe in made something else they don't believe in.

People need something to justify their hate. It's sad that they have to bring the Lord in this...
