Marriage is about family-that means kids-2 of the same kind can not give birth to kids. Homosexuals must be recruited because the can not actively breed without the opposite sex. Unless its Asexual like a worm

Are you kidding me? It has EVEYTHING to do with civil rights. I guess you think we should have stuck to owning slaves too, right? I mean people once believed it was okay to treat humans like that too, it doesn't mean it was EVER the right thing to do. I suppose your bible told you that union was between a man and woman? Show me where it says that YOU have the right to judge anyone. I mean, if God created everyone why did he create his children destine to hell? Please explain to me how any of that makes since at all. Thanks.

You can not change your color of skin and that has nothing to do with taking civil rights away. Homosexuality is a choice that can be acted upon or not. I am asking you to accept me for the content of my character not sex. Homosexuals can not bear children therefore they must recruit to grow. Marriage is about family and children they can not have children-they can only recruit. You throw the bible around like you have read it (you have never read it)you do not have a clue. Do you have the right to judge me? are you really that self rightous? No one is destined for hell though some choose it. By the way if there were no judges in this world what would save you from every murderer and rapist that is now in prison? It would put the police out of business and the world would survive only by who ever was mean and nasty enough to rise to the top. Thank God there have been a few who have made good judgement and practiced fairness. God Bless all men and women because God loved "all" even those who have labled themselves homosexuals.

Give me a break. It has everything to do with civil rights. Homosexuality is not a "choice". Why would people CHOOSE to have no rights and be ridiculed? That is what doesn't make any sense. There should be a separation if church and state. America is supposed to be a great nation, the land of the free. With liberty and justice FOR ALL, am I right? No, I have never read the bible fully, Tom. I was, however, a student at a catholic school until the age of 12. I realized around the age of 8, that no Holy God would create any human destine to fail. If he created mankind in his image, then we are all destine to heaven, or at least SHOULD be. Explain to me different religions, color of skin, languages, ect. IF you follow tad bible so closely thaen you must believe we're a product of Adam and Eve? Do you REALLY believe that Eve was created from Adam's rib? You must also believe that two of every animal travelled to a magical ark that was built by an old drunk? How did the animals not eat each other? Why is Jesus depicted as white, when he SHOULD be of middle eastern decent? Don't judge me either, Sir. You are far from righteous yourself, but you're allowed to believe in whatever makes you sleep at night.

I am a 35 year old female. I have gay friends, and "straight" friends. I've witnessed marriages fall apart no matter age, years married, children involved or not. I was honestly infurated by the comment that a marriage is for making babies and if you can't make babies then you shouldn't be allowed to marry... REALLY??? I think marriage should be about love and respect for one another. Knowing and feeling that you can't and don't want to live without one another. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ONES ABILITY OR INABILITY TO HAVE CHILDREN, YOUR RACE, OR SEXUAL PREFERANCE. By your logic, there is no point in having sex without the woman getting pregnant (BOOOOO), and by that logic birth control must be the devils advocate. In my opinion Tom, you are a close minded person with nothing to stand on but your personal morals and values... you think maybe you could accept you neighbors morals and values when they don't personally effect yours?

They bible DOES say, "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself". So get over yourself and treat EVERYONE as you would want to be treated.

SARAH--- you are awesome. I LOVE finding other open minded people in the world. where logic preludes force feed nonsence. I myself got kicked out of sunday school at the tender age of 4 or 5 because of argueing with the "teacher" about facts vs. the bible. Even at that age i told her it was a nice idea (bible stories), but that was all it was, a story. I just wanted to say thank you for being you. We need more people like you in this world.

"marriage" as a Catholic church sacrament....if a Catholic marriage and "same sex marriage" is a non-possibility. If "marriage as a civil union" ...another conversation. The Catholic Church has not nor should not change it's beliefs because of a "marriage" definition in the civil arena. The Catholic church welcomes everyone, irregarless of sexual orientation. Marriage is a sacrament between a man and a woman.

Simply because of how political and polarized it has become. Some how sexual choices and sexuality has been flaunted in everyones face to the point of a token blatantly gay man in every sitcom. It might be common, but not a constant.
Someone needs to tell folks that where your penis goes shouldn't be the subjected to younger children in regards to political gains.
