Love is love. The sanctity of marriage is a joke... Seriously, what would it hurt to let people marry who actually want to get married?

Thank you. I don't understand either. There are couples who have been in a partnership longer than most straight marriages last. Yet they can marry and divorce as much as they like, as long as it's with the opposite sex. Peoples main argument is from the religious aspect. All I want is to be able to have my wife on my health insurance when I get it, or to be able to be in there should, God forbid, anything major happen to her, to get the same insurance and tax breaks married couples get.

This is almost like saying colored people can't marry. There used to be a law that said a black person couldn't marry a white person. It's phenomenal that we even have to have this conversation. We're all free human beings and we need to be treated as such.

and here comes the "party-pooper". What's wrong with it is it's against the law. Kentucky put it to the vote, 74% voted against. You can't just make up which laws you want to abide by and which ones you don't. Then we get into the "pandora's box" of all conversations and wat the bible says about same sex issues. You can save the gay-basher name calling too. I have good friends that are gay some that go to church with my wife and I. Homosexuality is a sin....it's not the un-forgiveable sin because there is no such thing. Still sin, just like adultery, stealing, and many more.

Yes we are all free human beings that were given free will by God. Choose to be your own God at your own peril.

You're not a party pooper, we're in the VAST majority as the election results prove.

Religion is always brought into everything. Separation of church and state. No laws should be based on ANY one religion. And they only recently made the DOMA law which defines marriage between a man and woman. They need to change it to defining marriage between two consenting adults.

Yes, but really, we are talking about God. Why wouldn't God be apart oof every major or even minor choice you make in life? He needs to be thought about and his wishes should be obeyed. Why do you think your here? So now we need to change the bible? If same sex people were made to be together why can't they reproduce? Why did God make woman? This country is based on God, why would our laws not consider his commands and wishes too?

"The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion." -- Treaty of Tripoly, article 11

This is not a religious debate. He is YOUR god, not mine. God plays no part in my daily life or decision making. Like I said, people should be able to marry for love. You know, marriage used to be when two people exchanged property. Like land or an animal... It was a contract. There wasn't, until recently, a definition of marriage between man & woman. Which lawmakers took it amongst themselves to define... Which is silly. Marriage shouldn't have to mean reproduction.
just sayin

We aren't talking about God. Were talking about a legal right to equality. All we want is the same legal rights afforded to everyone else and why is that so wrong? Why should we be treated and regarded as second class citizens because of our sexual orientation? Your God made us this way. We're all created in His own image, so we can't be wrong because He made us who we are.

Just a few of many...many examples:

1) The Liberty Bell has imprinted on it " Lev. 25:10 Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof."

2) Sam Adams, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, wrote in his will that he resigned his soul to the Almighty Being who gave it and committed his body to the dust " relying on the merits of Jesus Christ for the pardon of my sins."

3) The Continental Congress on Sept. 11, 1777 , ordered the importation of 20,000 Bibles for the American troops. Benjamin F. Morris wrote " The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States" in 1864. A copy can be ordered from Vision Publishing if you are truly interested to learn the truth concerning religious influences on our civil institutions.

4) How about land marks in our nations capital? The Surpreme Court Building has multiple examples. Moses is depicted holding two tablets of stone with the Ten Commandments. The Library of Congress has statues depicting Apostle Paul and Moses. There are scripture quotes from Micah 6:8, Psalms 19:1, Proverbs 4:7, and Leviticus 19:18 on the walls! In the House Chambers above the American Flag are the words " In God We Trust"

I could go on all day but must get to work. I suggest you also read the " Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day" by Abraham Lincoln on March 30,1863. Where he humbles himself in the presence of the Lord. I believe that our dear obama says Lincoln is his favorite president....wonder if he ever read this??

TB, sorry to always disagree with you but I have been at this a long time and have facts not just "feelings and emotions" to back up my beliefs.

I'm not trying to instigate, nor further aggravate anything here, but I am a fan of education, and perhaps others would like to educate themselves on what the Founding Fathers felt about religion- http://freethought.mbdojo.com/foundingfathers...

How is this even an argument? Why should I care if gays are legally allowed to be gay?

But church and state have to be separate. But wait, it isn't. Religion is a sham, it causes wars and deaths. It prevents two competent beings from being together in the greatest way possible but 2 drunken dumb asses can marry even if they hate eachother as long as their male and female. I find the vagina repulsive and can't see myself ever married to anything that has one. Guess I'll die without getting married, well that's what I get for living in the homophobic stereotypical bible belt. I love my boyfriend but that's all we can ever be apparently, which Is a shame. Kentucky better step up fast, or else chaos will ensue in the years to come. I love 8=========D~~~~~~~~~

I think marriage is overrated, but everyone should be able to do it if they please with whoever they are in love with. It's not like people are going to quit being gay because close minded people say they shouldn't be allowed to get married

I go to church but So what if its in the bible. There's alot in the bible that everyone goes against everyda yOf their life so why just point out certin things? It's 2011 not 1960s
Every closed minded person needs to get over it . Love is love. If your gay
And try to be straight just bc everyone says its "wrong " then your just
Living ur life as a lie. And unhappy. Also lying to yourself and god. So either way your screwed ha.
