So, I'm a Christian. And I support gay marriage. It might seem ridiculous, but take this "Judge not, that ye be not judged"- Matthew 7:1, KJV.
My argument is that, though gay marriage MIGHT be wrong, we shouldn't judge the people who are gay, nor those who support gay marriage. You know what? It's between them and God.

"My argument is that, thought gay marriage MIGHT be wrong,"

If something is wrong then why would anyone support it? You have contradicted yourself by stating that you are a Christian, and yet you support the marriage of what. God calls abominations in Leviticus 20:13 , depending on what version you read.

"We shouldn't judge those who are gay."

This is true, we should be helping them, not judging them. But while the Bible says that we shouldn't judge them, I don think he meant let them get married and have completely equal rights. In God's eyes it's not actually "marriage", just something completely and horribly wrong.

"You know what? It's between them and God."

This doesn't mean we can't "shove them" if you will, to God, because most, of not all, gays are atheist.

I am confused by pro's argument. The Bible says do not judge so we should completely support it......Drugs are wrong but we should be judgmental. I am a Christian too and my point is why could you not apply your argument to all sin and justify everyone's sinful actions.

What are you arguing? That gay marriage is right? If so you contradicted yourself by saying that it might be wrong. I don't judge people, but I can still have an opinion that gay marriage should be banned.
