Many of you bring religion and the Bible into this. This is a site for opinions/ judgement and there is only one judge God. He gave us choice and we all choose differently it is not up to any other person to judge you. Little or no true knowledge of a situation that you comment on and people that you pass judgement on only makes you look lost empty of faith and ignorant.

Aren't all sins equal in the eyes of God? I am not a religious person but I am sure we all sin. Why is same sex/gay marriage such a big deal? Most all religious people/groups persecute gays/lesbians but would love to help try to reform a murder. Marriage isn't just for religious people. Lots of people who believe in nothing get married all the time. So does that mean you have to go to church and believe in God to get married?

LMAO! yes in the christian bible it is yes... I give ya that...but in life and evolution it is not... there's many species that can even change sexuality to mate...
Religion sees it as an abomonation...ok but yet if you ask for forgivness you shall recieve it with the same beliefs..So why can't you turn the other cheek and forgive those who are?? You can not slam the gavel at someone and think its all about just sexual gratification...Because that is not what true love is about... Cheating is also an abomination..Sleeping around is a sin too... But yet everyone, even you sir/ma'am has done or thought of the same thing... But yet you can be forgivin, why can't they... Everyone who isn't gay says that gay is a choice, it isn't natural..But yet the the "gay" person it is either something they feel IS natural or it's something that they chose to do due to something in the past devistating them, or irradic behavior done to them as a child... I might not be gay, but I can step back and understand what love is sir/ma'am... For love is blind, love is binding... Judge not for you shall be judged just the same.. Blessed be to all those who choose to live free under the eyes of God no matter of where your from or what you do.... Do on to other's and be merry, then no matter what or who you are, you shall inherit the kingdom of the heaven's you and your lover... quote the raven... Wiccan/christian
If they speak not according to my word then there is no light in them. Quote the bible. You my friend speak the devils words. God will forgive sin but will not forgive you if you do not turn from your sins. And who cares what the raven said

I tend to agree with you, is it because I am straight?

Question--__If there was no personal income tax ,and no , therefore, deductions for mortgage or other items, and there was simply a sales tax on everything bought , instead, called Fair Tax or Value Added tax, what advantage would marriage be to gays? Would all this hub-bub die down? What advantage would marriage give?(other than Religion)

Although tax benefits are one issue, that is not the only issue regarding gay marriage and it's importance. For instance - if I am in the hospital, my partner can be kept from seeing me or making decisions regarding my care. Legal documentation such as Power of Attorney, will not always suffice. The hospital can actually force the partner to leave or have them arrested if they don't (it has actually happened). So - although tax and "monetary" benefits are one issue, it is not the only one or even the most important one to most gay couples.

One other thing to remember - marriage licenses are issued by the state - not the church - therefore, marriage is not "controlled" by religion.

I personally believe that a church has every right to choose not to perform a marriage ceremony (gay or straight). However, I do not believe the state (commonwealth) has a right to deny marriage licenses to two consenting adults (gay or straight).

I just can't understand why so many religious people\groups are so full of hate regarding gay and lesbians. What about child molesters, murders, and rapists. Seems every religion is standing in line to help them and standing in an equally long line to persecute gays and lesbians. I thought religion was about love not hate?

That's funny that you people keep trying to justify gays by comparing them to thing like murder rape and child molesting. Nice one, way to make yourself look so innocent. Gay is coming and no one can stop it, but they will all burn in hell if they don't stop and repent. Oh and yes that goes the same for murderers rapists and child molesters. Happy now?

My opinion is marriage is a union between a man and women. Per the bible even at a state level it is recognized by god. So to be correct the bible says that a man shall not share his bed with another man. I'm guessing the same goes for a women. Idc if gays want to join in a union but there should be some separation of a union and a marriage. Also I personally don't think same sex marriages should get the same tax breaks as a traditional marriage or healthcare coverages. That is my opinion and we all elect public officials so the government will do whatever is best for getting elected. Go figure. Have fun debating.
