I am sure that some of them ARE anti christian and some of them are not. Just like the rest of society. What they want most of all is a LEGAL marriage just like everyone else is entitled to!
Also I am not gay, I have been married and faithful for 42 years. I am female and he is male.
Then let them have a legal ceremony besides marriage, civil union gives them the same legal rights and doesn't infringe on the beliefs of others.

As long as they truly have ALL the same legal rights and can have a big wedding if they so please, I am sure most would be satisfied!

So if lesbian women earn 5% less than men but 5% more than currently married women then why doesn't that balance out? If a man earns $50,000 and a lesbian earns 5% less she is earning $47,500, which is 5% more than a currently married woman who is earning $45,125. If you add that $45,125 to the $50,000 earned by a man that equals $95,125, and if you double the $47,500 earned by two lesbian women that equals $95,000. So you see your theory is not correct.
You have a good point.

I'm not basing my opinions on emotions but on logic. I am a single woman and the fact that I am not married has no effect whatsoever on someone else's rights and the marriage of anyone has absolutely no effect on my rights.
As more homosexuals leave the single demographic with same sex marriage, fewer singles have voice and voting strength declines.

I think you need to give more concentrated thought to the arguments you are making and learn to recognize the erroneous suppositions before someone else points them out to you.
There is no gender equality right in the Constitution.

Well not if it changes the meaning of FAMILY. I think it could cause problem with the institution of marriage in America.
They can be together...without a certificate? What rights are they losing? Why give special rights to any group? Just explain why it is a human rights issue...please?
If you are truly worried about protecting marriage and family, you should outlaw divorce!!

They are losing many rights. Tax Benefits filing jointly; Estate Issues, Social Security Payments to surviving partners, same with pensions.

Tell me that two men or women who build a life together for 30 years are not entitled to these benefits at other Americans get? Due to divorce, most people get multiple chances to get married.

Gay soldiers who openly serve, and put themselves in harms way just like hetero soldiers do, but if that soldier gets killed, the surviving partner gets nothing.

It doesn't change the meaning of family. I know many gay families, and they are more likely more secure in their family than you are.

In closing, Jesus is about love and acceptance, not hatred. Whatever your religious beliefs, you should keep your religious beliefs out of politics. The founding fathers fight wars for freedom from religious bulllying.

Judge proposed changes to law; same sex marriage is gender segregation marriage so husband/wife marriage is gender diversity.

Decide what's best for our children, ask what would mom and dad have thought.

I don't have such a low opinion of the public, this is were we differ.

Just because there is no good reason to redefine marriage; we respect all fellow citizens and gays have married under the same law as everyone else. There is nothing wrong with homosexuals or homosexuality but that's no reason to change how government recognizes gender differences and marriage. The ERA failed, same sex marriage is un-Constitutional.

God keeps being brought into this discussion. All I can say about that is He didn't appear to take too kindly to those cities of Sodomy and Gonorrhea. It really doesn't affect me one way or another because I prefer women and have been know to do consensual things that I can't mention on here. I guess that makes me a lesbian but we all have our faults.

Not to mention marriage being a ceremony derived from the Bible. You know, the book liberals and gays hate and do not want it in any form in this country.

Everything and anything BUT the economy, big ZEROES job performance and his pitiful lack of leadership. Oh, and fudging, for lack of a better term, the unemployment numbers to make them APPEAR much much better than they actually are, or worse. The true number is most likely closer to 20% but that might hurt his re-election prospects. Wisconsin already is a darker shade of pink and growing more red everyday. Score keeper, you hit it on the head again.

As for the biology ... Do you only have sex to procreate?... Sex for sex's sake is pretty awesome where I come from.

As for God's word ... not everyone goes to your church or prays to your God ... why must all be governed by your beliefs?

If ya don't want to have sex w/ or marry a person of the same gender, don't. Beyond that, your opinion is only that, your opinion.

BTW ... Read up on Mormonism before you go to the voting booth in November ;-)

Government rewards marriage because it brings future taxpayers. Anyone who votes according to a candidate's religion is a religious bigot.
