Marraige is between a man and a woman period. Stop forcing your social agenda and your lifestyle on me.

I like how someone who wants rights, and doesn't want to deny anyone else the same rights, is forcing their agenda on you. Marriage means a lot of different things to different people, ask the 48% of couples that aren't committed enough and end up divorced. No one is asking you to change your mind on what you think marriage is, they're just asking for the same rights under the law that everyone else has - to be recognized by the state as being married to the person they love. 50 years from now we'll all look back on this the same way people did about not allowing women to vote, and not considering blacks to be equal human beings. Your view is bigoted and will be short-lived.

Wow. People like you are exactly what this country has defied ever since our english ancestors colonized. They are just asking for their rights to marry their partners like anybody else. It is ridiculous that they can not be married because of the beliefs of our government leadership.(I'm not sure if leadership should be the right word for it...) This country has a severe problem with the separation of church and state. If anyone has a problem forcing social agendas and lifestyles on anyone, it is people like you religious nuts. I personally don't have a problem with religion because this country is free to believe whatever it wants, but all too often the religious beliefs of our lawmakers ends up in the laws. Every America citizen has the right to choose. You don't have to choose to have a same sex marriage and nobody is forcing you. But the people who do shouldn't be oppressed from doing so. It depresses me to think I choose to serve this country for its freedom, but these things are still an issue.

Marriage is between a man and a women. Being gay is a choice, no one is born this way, I know for a fact it is a conscious choice!

Because Gay marriage should be legal EVERYWHERE! The Constitution says that EVERYONE gets rights. Then why can't GAY people get married?? There is nothing wrong with GAY FREAKING MARRIAGE! I support this message.:)

Homosexuality ruins the family which is the fundamental unit of society.

Search ; Log Cabin Republicans Bob Barr(R) GA
Bob Barr actually wrote the Defense of Marraige Act (the DOMA) Bob Barr was a raging bombastic conservative Republican congressman. Barr now claims he is an Ayn Rand Libertarian. Bob Barr has now done a 180 degree turn on the DOMA and is actively working to repeal it. Bob Barr(R) GA, was the keynote speaker at the Gay & Lesbian Log Cabin Republican convention in Dallas, Texas.
Bob Barr in the old days ranted and raved about marraige being between one man and one woman. Now he wants the Log Cabin Republicans to help him return to public office. Same sex marraige is just fine with Bob Barr now.

I do not have the right to tell any other American citizen whom to marry or how to conduct their private lives. I don't expect my neighbor to tell me who I may or may not marry and I should tell my neighbor the same.

Gay people are people just the same. We've never been successful or right trying to stomp on the rights of others

I'll stop forcing my "social agenda" on you when you stop forcing YOUR "social agenda" on me.

Show me your proof. And may I remind you every psychological association in the United States has stated sexual orientation is not a choice.

God has never had a place in the institution of marriage; marriage lies in the hand of a state. Your ministry is not going to be forced to perform any marriages it does not agree with per your freedom of religion; however, your religious philosophy is not grounds on which legislation can be based. You are allowed to believe what you wish, but the government is not meant to be so biased.
