Gays and straights are equal, just like whites, black, asians, hispanics, etc.

Nothing to explain. It is a human rights issue.

I believe spending the rest of your life with the one you love but as far as the "finanical" benifits or the child raising issues, I believe that should be left to a "married couple" with a man and a woman.

It is a civil rights issue. Two consenting adults, who love each other, shouldn't have to be denied marriage by others. They should have the same civil rights as anyone else. No second class citizens, please

Mariage is defined as a union between a man and a woman. I'm all for letting Gays have a Civil ceremony, and some kind of legalese so they can get benefits from the company of the working one. They should be allowed to receive all benefits that non-gays get, but I am against a Marriage ceremony. A civil ceremony is fine.

We supposedly have Freedom of Religion in this country. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. My church wants to be able to marry gays and lesbians. How would you like it if someone was telling your church what they can and cannot do?

It is not my place to tell someone who they love or want to share their life with. Everyone has the right to love and happiness. God does not want us to treat others unkindly or to judge others.

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Although it was written by Paul, you do know that Paul was just a man? Not only is he a man, he is mortal, meaning his opinions are just that: opinions, specific to a time and place. Quoting the Bible does not help your argument, and to call gays and lesbians sinners and fools only attributes to your own arrogance. It is not your place to judge. If they are truly sinners in the eyes of the Lord, let him judge them on their last day; to do otherwise would be blasphemous to a degree, and be hypocritical of your own religion.

I'm a Christian and I'm also gay. If the bible takes such a big part in such a thing, then shouldn't you also believe in such things like stoning people who perform adultery? I'm pretty sure that there's a part that explains how a woman must sacrifice a turtle or a dove when they get their period. You don't see people doing that anymore, now do you?

The God I pray to is loving. The bible might say that homosexuality is wrong, which might make it a sin, but it's not like you're going to go to hell for it.

It's not like it's one of the Seven Deadly Sins.
And you know what? You see those happening every. single. day.

There should be nothing wrong with two people who are in love that want to get married. Especially now that people who get married now a days do it many reasons that aren't love.

Everyone should be able to have what they love, even if you don't agree with it. I don't care if you're purple, dinosaur, asian, man, woman or child. You deserve to be treated right.
