First off I'm gay! Secondly, nobody should be treated as a second class citizen especially when it comes to our constitutional rights!

There is supposed to be a separation of church and state. So, I'm wondering why we still have laws in place against gay marriage when they are clearly based upon religion. The government has no right to tell anyone who they can or cannot marry. The constitution states that all men are created equal. By having laws in place that discriminate against gays, they are violating the constitution.
Even if you are religious, God created everyone. As Christians, you are expected to love everyone, no matter what they have done. So all of this hate that you Christians are spewing at the gay community is going against the word of God. It makes you just as bad as the people of the Westboro Baptist Church.
