I keep hearing and seeing people say that, and honestly that's the weakest, most ignorant excuse I've ever heard of. God (who I don't believe in, in the Christian sense anyway) may have supposedly created Adam and Eve, yes, and I know what Leviticus 18:22 says. But this country was founded on the idea of freedom, that is, freedom of not just religion but freedom in and of itself; people should be allowed to marry whoever they love, regardless of their sexual preference, religion, race, or what have you.

If you're going to try and prosecute the gay community for wanting to marry and spend their life with the person they love, I'd really think you should have a better reason for it than "oh God didn't want it that way". The Bible also commands that no man nor woman shave or cut their hair, or put two types of crops in the same garden. It also says that any man who cheats on his wife, or vice versa, is to be put to death. All of this was pulled from Leviticus, the very same part of the Bible in which it says that being gay is a blaspheme (which is ridiculous).

its not right, marriage is between a man and a women, especially when kids r involved, no kid says when I grow up I want to be gay do they, no they all say I want to get married and have kids, and grandkids, they grow up thinking thats right, their lives r ruined forever, they never had a chance to be normal, so yeah thats child abuse right there in my opinion, wife and husband, not wife and wife, or husband and husband, get this president out of there, this is the craziest thing I ever heard of and for our own government to back it, hes just wanting votes is all, im not into watching same sex people kissing and touching thats just gross, that wasnt how I was brought up, I had a normal childhood and my kids turned out to be outstanding young men, next thing u will say is pediphials is ok, who cares if they hurt the children, u r talking about ruining the lives of countless children if they grow up to think this is ok, how many kids will never be born, how many families will cease to exist, what could of been will never be, because u corrupted the minds of the innocent, what the hell is wrong with people

I'm sorry, but what? How is two people who love each other raising a child considered child abuse? Two women or two men raising a child doesn't mean that that child will be gay, or have anything wrong with them; it's two people, two human beings with human rights, raising a child with those same rights.

Also, comparing pedophiles to gay people is just stupid. It's ignorant and absolutely ridiculous. Gay men and women don't go around preying on underage children, and the line between gay and pedophile is so clear that I'm not sure even a blind person could miss it.

I'd also like to point out that no one says they want to "be gay" when they grow up because.. it's not a damn career choice. It's really not a choice at all -- you're attracted to who you're attracted to, that's it. And children who are gay /do/ say that they want to grow up and get married/have kids/grandkids, however, because of the majority of Americans being selfish, pigheaded Bible-thumpers, they can't. As for being gay "corrupting" the minds of "innocents".. I just. I don't even know how to dignify that idiocy with a reply. You're acting like being gay will turn someone in to an axe murderer or something.

On the subject of "kids never being born" because of gay marriages, I'd like to say this: we're pushing 7 billion people on this Earth, and there are countless children who are in foster care waiting to be adopted and given a loving home. Gays adopt children that need a home, or find a surrogate mother to have a baby for them. They're solving a lot more problems than they're making.. if they're even causing any problems, which.. to my knowledge, they're not. I don't see how loving someone could cause any problems.

It's people who want to take away basic human rights that cause the problems.

So you'd forbid an entire community from getting married based on your personal experience? I was brought up around a strictly straight, Christian family, and I'm a gay atheist. Being brought up around gay people won't automatically turn a child gay, that's just ridiculous, just like being brought up around straight people won't assure you that a child will be straight. It may have happened in your situation, but that's one single couple, not the entire community.

I'm sorry, but that's just stupid. I'm gay, does that automatically make me a pedophile? Does being gay automatically make someone any lesser of a human being? Does that mean you should strip the gay community of their basic human rights and call them awful names and threaten them?

I am not sick in the head nor is any other homosexual person on this planet simply because they're gay. Is someone "sick" for loving someone and wanting to spend their lives together? It shouldn't matter what genders two people in a relationship are -- if they love each other, why would you want to bring them down and separate them? It's just heartless and idiotic.

I have multiple straight, Christian friends who believe the exact same thing that I do. As well, there are thousands of straight people who are out protesting for gay rights every day; it isn't only gay people who believe it's right. It's people with some common sense and integrity.

You can't help the way you feel? Well, we can't help the way we feel either. It's natural, and marriage is a human right that shouldn't be taken away from anyone.

It's people like you that make me lose faith in humanity.

If you're an atheist, then u don't have an opinion. Atheists believe in nothing. This country was built with Christian principles. If gays don't like it then they can go start their own country.

I'm sorry but that's the most ignorant thing I've ever heard. I'm an atheist, yes, which simply means I'm not a "theist" (theism is the belief that at least one deity exists); I don't see how not believing in a god makes me not have an opinion on human rights?

This country was built on freedom of opinion, freedom of speech, and freedom in general -- it was not built with Christian principles, as it is common knowledge that America has separation of church and state; we are not a strictly Christian country, there are many religions within America and there always have been.

However, religion should not have a say in the laws of America; we created this country to escape religious oppression, and live lives where the laws were governed by logic and reason rather than religion (do not mistake this for me bashing religion, that is not my intention).

If homosexual people wish to have a marriage, they should be able to. The old standby of "it's against the Bible" should not apply, because religion does not govern America.

Marriage is a religious principle. Therefore if you don't believe in religion a civil union is the term you should be satisfied with when two same sex people co habitate. You're looking for legal rights so marriage isn't necessary. If it's just the traditional ceremony you want you could have done that without anyone's okay. It's still not marriage.
