Everyone should have the same rights, not just a select group. Giving other people equal rights does not take away from your own. Equality is something America needs to work on. I find it sad that you can marry your 1st cousin in many states but cannot marry someone you love because they are of the same sex. It wasn't too long ago when interracial marriage wasn't legal and women didn't have a right to vote. Everyone who is an American should have the exact same rights, regardless of race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation.

I don't think government or laws of any kind should take marital status into consideration. As long as marriage is a legal contract any discrimination violates the principles on which our government is based. Take government out of marriage and churches/religions can can discriminate against gay or any other kind of people all they want. The Catholic church can say women can't be priests, but the government can't say women can't be doctors.

I agree with you post 100%! Organized religion has hurt so many people throughout the ages. Women make some of the best doctors, and I'll bet they'd make better priests as well! I've personally suffered most of my life due to people's religious beliefs and ignorance, but now even though my partner (20 years) and I are old we still have hope of being recognized as a legitimate married couple in our country The USA.

People who actually think Obama is for Gay Marriage are idiots this is just more smoke and mirrors for his re-election. To bad most Americans (gay or straight) are so "in aww" of what ever he says that will eat it up and love it. SHEEPLE of AMERICA.

it does not take into consideration the view point of the creator, it is against Gods design.

People who actually think that the "gay marriage" issue is going to go away are idiots. Face the fact that gays and lesbians are out more than they have ever been and that's not going to change.

That's your religious belief, and there is separation of church and state.

As long as gays and lesbians are taxpaying citizens who fight in wars alongside of other military for the freedom of this country then this "gay marriage" shouldn't be an issue. Gays have earned the right!

The laws we are talking about are not Gods laws it is the laws of The United States of America! The reason why all citizens should be able to marry….
14th Amendment:
Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
God did not create The Constitution or the laws if he did then there would be no divorce, no working on Sundays, no jury's trials, no in vitro fertilization, mandatory 10% of your check would go to the church, adultery would be punishable too.

Gays and lesbians have been around long before Christianity, and they'll be here long after Christianity is fazed out as a popular myth. The rights of gays and lesbians in America are taking hold and that's not going to stop. Christians need to focus less on hatred and focus more on the love that Jesus was said to have preached, and maybe America would be a better nation.

Hey, I bet if we made it mandatory for 10% of all Christians' checks/income to go to organized religion we'd hear them sing a different tune! lol

And by the way, I don't mean any disrespect to Jesus. It's his "so called" followers that I have a problem with!

Who's authority is higher Gods or the United States Government? God loves us so much that he has given us the right to choose. We can choose to follow him or our own sinful desires, the 14th Amendment witch you have cited and the Constitution as a whole are founded on principles found in the Holy Bible and no were else. It is these same principles that have lead this nation to be the greatest nation on the planet with Gods blessings. Over the last 40 years this nation has turned its back on God and started following it own sinful desires and we can see the results of that decision,16 trillion in debt, gangs roaming the streets of our city's, youth being enslaved to drug abuse, over 3000 unborn babies murdered every day, a divorce rate that is over 50%, families being torn apart, communities living in fear, wars being fought with no real clearly defined objective or final outcome. Gay marriage is just one more decision that nation is making to turn its back on God. What we all as individuals need and our nation as a whole need is a savior and that savior can only be found in Jesus Christ. You can and probably will disagree with everything that i have just said to you grave, but when your heart stops beating and one day it will, you will understand the true horror of turning away from Gods salvation.
