If you wanna be gay, be gay.

Being gay, married and adopting kids is freaking gross and can be very dangerous.

Here's the question.....

Where does it end????

If gay marriage is allowed, then when someone says, "Hey, I should be able to marry my cat Fluffy bec I love him" - Let's open the door to beastiality in the marriage scene.

Or how about polgamy. I want 10 husbands and we all wanna get married as one.

Shouldnt they have the right?

You say I am crazy or an idiot, ok well read a newspaper. There have been several people around the nation/globee who believe they actually have the right to marry their pet, car, house, etc.

Man and woman or nothing.

You are exactly right!!! Homosexualtiy is wrongs anyway you look at it!! All these Homo's need to get out there Bible and read what it says about Homo's. Just to think our so called President goes along with Homosexuality being right is a down right disgrace! How can the American people stand for someone like him to be our leader. This world is becoming so corrupt and the good Lord above isn't gonna stand much more!! So sad that people can't open there eyes before it is too late!!!

Homosexuality is wrong plain and simple. Marriage is to be one man and one woman, I believe in what the Bible says and if you are a Christian then you know that Homosexuality is WRONG!!!!!!

Wow, all of this outstanding & earth shattering intelligence coming from one of the largest inbreeding areas in the U.S.. The Homosexual community cannot marry, but the people of Southwest Virginia can still marry their cousins. What else would a person expect from the poorest & largest under educated county in Virginia.

Its no surprise to me that there is a lot of sick minded people in America who thinks its just fine for a woman to lick anothers vagina or a man to cobb another man in the a$$. ITS WRONG. And deep down inside your soul and heart you know its wrong. The only ones who will defend this low life sick perverted sexual practice is those with no or low moral standerds. Or the ones who do it or the ones who think thay may do it one day. Now I know that gays are kicking the doors down and crashing thru the road blocks in the way of this perverted gay bullsh!t movement, much the same women did with their movement or blacks with their civil rights movement. And all tho I will never accept these fudge packers or carpet munchers as anything more than perverts, they will one day in this nation have more rights than the rest of america does. Our government will brainwash our children into accepting this behavior as normal. This will be accomplished thru the educational system much in the same way civil rights was. You can tell an adult they must accept something but their mind is already made up for the most part, but a child from pre-k thru high school can be brainwashed into believing any thing imaginable. Case in point, the civil rights movement, and black on white racism is now the norm. Same way with this gay crap , get ready America, because you cant stop it. Our government will force this down your throat and up your a$$ one way or another.

Because the gay folks aren't just wanting to be in committed relationships. That is already completely legal in every state. They want us to provide financial incentives for them to get into such relationships.

And there simply is not a need for such incentives for them since they do not provide the same benefit to society.

If that is not a concern, then it is safe to say you fully support polygamy? After all, you "just worry about your own life and stop judging everyone else for their choices".

And before you claim marriage is not about procreation, don't forget that siblings cannot marry at all and cousins only can in some states if they show they are infertile.

Children are the future of society. Heterosexual couples can have a child accidentally or with no planning. Society has a vested interest in convincing the couple that conceived the child to stay together to raise him/her or staying together once they have that kid.

Homosexual couples can NEVER have a kid, much less accidentally. It always requires a third party. And to have a kid, they have to plan and make a conscious decision. Clearly they are already interested in undertaking that effort. There is no need for an incentive.

So you think getting married is only about having children then clearly you dont understand anything about a relationship. how about being able to find someone that you can relate to and spend the rest of your life with? How about having someone there by your side when you get older someone to love you and be your best friend to me this is what a relationship is... and for as children are concerned there is gonna be many more couples that are having children just beacuse its legal for homosexuals to get married doesnt mean that all of american's are gonna marry the same sex.

I didn't say that. I said that was why the gov't got involved nad provides incentives.

Or are you claiming you need gov't approval before you can "find someone that you can relate to and spend the rest of your life with".

Do you need gov't blessing to have " someone there by your side when you get older someone to love you and be your best friend to me."

If so, your relationship is pretty lame.

If it is not about having kids, please explain why cousins can only marry in some states if they are infertile and siblings cannot marry at all.

Marriage isn't there to encourage couples to have kids, its to try to keep them together for when they have kids.

This is directed toward those who have used his/her Christian faith & the Bible as their defense for being an oppressive human. Passing judgement & gossip is a nasty sin, read your Bible to confirm this. I love how these so called Christians pick & choose what they want to use as argument from the Bible, only to look like complete fools because they are not following the Bible's teachings at all. Human nature will tell you that Oppression of any people or race is an atrocity at best. I don't need the Bible to explain this to me, even though the Bible does support my statement.

Good for you "Parent of a gay" & I wish you the best of luck. I know that it must be tough to live in an area such as Gate City & deal with so many small minded people. I am 100% heterosexual male who just does not see the issue with this at all. It does not affect my marriage or family whatsoever, so why the big deal? The Bible is a pathetic argument, because nobody follows every written word..........nobody.
People are born this way & have so much to offer society, just like a heterosexual human being.
