I don't understand the fact that same-sex marriage is federally illegal still. You can't tell someone wrong from right with who they like. Yes you can say, "Oh that person is dangerous." But you can not tell whether that person to like an opposite or same gender. Is it really that harmful for same-sex couples to be around people? For them to have a federal illegal law against what they want. It's them not you. Yes the bible is against it, although it says God loves all of his children and creations right? He created it. This is not a religious base, but did he forget that? Why should same-sex marriage be federally illegal? It is not doing any harm to you or the people around you. No one is going to drop dead seeing two woman or two men kiss, marry, etc. That is just atrocious. Really? For people to be fired or unaccepted from a job because they like the same gender, or even both genders! Why would liking the same gender affect anyone? Give me a solid reason. Yes if they were to have a child, possibly they would have a different perspective. Though is it really that wrong to be federally illegal?

Same sex marriage is already recognized by the federal government. Meaning its legal on a federal level. States still have the rights to create laws within themselves. Such as how states were legalizing medical marijuana while it was illegal federally.(which isnt the case anymore)

I'm with you Anna but I feel it is only a matter of time. the constitution is on the side of legalizing it and federal laws will soon be changed to support it. currently somewhere around 37 states have made it legal. the rest will follow suit.
