People remain free to make whatever religious definitions they feel are appropriate, and to bless whatever unions they feel appropriate. However, in the civil sphere, marriage is and ought to be regarded as the right of both hetero and homosexual couples.

Marriage is between a man (male) and a woman (female). Plainly, homosexual practitioners have chosen to reject the concept of traditional marriage --- as a same-sex partnership does not meet the basic requirements of marriage. Therefore, they have no right to redefine society's definition simply because they have personally rejected it. Society is not responsible to the practitioners of aberrant sexual behaviors to reorder our naturally defined world so that your deviant world seems more acceptable to you.

Nice try you filthy progressive...it is a religious sacrament or a ceremonial rite not a definition and therefore not open to the frivolities of a bunch of disruptive deviants.

The Civil Union/Same Sex Marriage debate is a distraction away from important issues facing this country today. Let the states decide whether same sex marriage is right for them and let's move on.

Google the NDAA, SOPA and FISPA acts -just do it and see what comes up. Let's focus on real issues like the importance of the next election, the imploding economy and dollar, race war being pushed by the federal govt in America, and the war being pushed with Iran that will no doubt lead to WWIII.

Once you have a taste of truthful reporting you never go back to mainstream contrived corporate media.

These hosts bash Republicans and Democrats equally because they know both sides are illuminati bought puppets out to screw us.

Give alternative news sources a chance before you knock them. Download these shows to your MP3 players and listen on your way to work or whatever. All you need from mainstream media is breaking news and traffic/weather.

These radio hosts should do a show together or at least make guest appearences on each others shows. They all value truth and liberty in their own way.

How about if they can get married but it's recognized only in gay ghettos like the Short North and German Village and San Francisco.

God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. Biological marriage involves procreation, which two men or two women cannot perform as so-called "gay" marriage is sterile / unnatural.

This gay marriage "issue" is a distraction. Marriage is a sacrament in practically ALL religions, therefore the definition issue is for the clergy and is NOT for politicians to decide on. The Bible condemns gay sex because it's adultery - outside of marriage but it says ZILCH about homosexual attractions or even relationships. Jesus did mention in a parable "what you did/did not do to the least of people you did/did not do to me". So we need to tackle the problems of employment, feeding the hungry, tending to the poor, sick, old, etc. and victims of crime, corruption, war and other evils. Those are the duties of govt. officials. For them to define what marriage is Orwellian. Leave that stuff to the theologians and the politicians have their work to do. Let's not let them shirk from it.

Besides, Obama said HIS view on the matter. He does not have absolute power. He's not a "messiah" and he's not an anti-Christ either so let's chill!

Live and let live. Whether or not two gay people get married has no bearing on my life whatsoever.

I struggled with that one. They obviously don't have the right "tools" to do the job.
If you think of marriage as merely a vehicle to reproduction, then you are correct: they lack the proper tools. However, if you think of marriage as a commitment between two people then they will be just fine.

Rebuttal for the insipid right wing attacks on marriage equality:

TOP TEN REASONS TO BAN GAY MARRIAGE:

1) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester and air conditioning.

2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasnít changed at all like many of the principles on which this great country was founded; women are still property, blacks still canít marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of marriages like Britney Spearsí would be destroyed.

6) The only valid marriages are those which produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldnít be allowed to marry because our orphanages arenít full yet, and the world needs more children.

7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. Thatís why we have only one religion in America.

9) Children can never succeed without both a male and a female role model at home. Thatís why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we havenít adapted to cars, the service-sector economy or longer life spans.

many homosexual groups are also lobbying for legalized prostitution and the repeal of statutory rape and age of consent laws. This shows the extreme radical philosophy of the homosexual movement, not just to "protect civil rights" but to change society's sexual values.

Now you are making stuff up. You don't want gays to be married and you don't have any good reasons to prevent it so you start saying that gays are into all of this other stuff that you deem unacceptable.

Furthermore, much of the western world views our sexual values as overly conservative, likely a product of our Puritan beginnings.

Contrary to myth, Christianity's concept of marriage has not been set in stone since the days of Christ, but has constantly evolved as a concept and ritual.

Prof. John Boswell, the late Chairman of Yale Universityís history department, discovered that in addition to heterosexual marriage ceremonies in ancient Christian church liturgical documents, there were also ceremonies called the "Office of Same-Sex Union" (10th and 11th century), and the "Order for Uniting Two Men" (11th and 12th century).

These church rites had all the symbols of a heterosexual marriage: the whole community gathered in a church, a blessing of the couple before the altar was conducted with their right hands joined, holy vows were exchanged, a priest officiatied in the taking of the Eucharist and a wedding feast for the guests was celebrated afterwards. These elements all appear in contemporary illustrations of the holy union of the Byzantine Warrior-Emperor, Basil the First (867-886 CE) and his companion John.

Such same gender Christian sanctified unions also took place in Ireland in the late 12thand/ early 13th century, as the chronicler Gerald of Wales (ĎGeraldus Cambrensisí) recorded.

I am ashamed to say that a number of my Christian brothers and sisters believe it is acceptable to tell lies when you are convinced that you are right about some larger issue.

Above is an example.
