same sex marriage is not right because god had made man and woman to marry eat other not to marry same sex because it takes a man and a woman to make a baby

Same sex marriage is not wrong. If it is wrong then it is a victimless crime and therefore constitutes no crime at all. . Applying a biblical point of view for marriage to a country of many religions and many cultures is not productive, logical or effective. Marriage did not begin with Christianity. Nor did it begin any conditioning of any deity of any religion.

Marriage today is not a spiritual event, unless you make it so. It is an agreement ingrained in our culture between two consenting adult. The state determines marriage, not a God. We are a modern society, to regress to a feudal aged idea is not progressive and accomplishes nothing but hate. For as long as there has been a "one and true god" there has been bloodshed in his name.

Religion belongs in churches, no religion is universal. It is not only the religious that become married.

If you wish to live in a modern society, you must abide by the rules of a modern society. There are no acceptations to this; god or otherwise.

It is not in the spirit of our species to subjugate any one. Be them beliefs or personal ideas of morality or sexual orientation. To take religious ideas and place them on others who do not agree with them is wrong. It is a deplorable act that has no place in the modern world.

Marriage is an agreement between two people. Even if it was condoned by god, it is no longer relevant.

You are correct: it does take a man and a women to make a baby. Unfortunately it does not take a marriage to make a baby. Pregnancy itself does not constitute a child will be born. But a child and a marriage are two completely different things. You don"t have to be married to have a child and vice versa.

Lastly, what does having a child have anything to do with a marriage? Not all marriages have babies. Adopted or otherwise.

I disagree with same sex marriage. If you wish to remove religious intonement, then you must define marriage as something else altogether. The battle that pro seems to wage is a subjectivebattle of llinguistics, and nothing more. The concept of marriage is the singular devotion of one for another as a lifelong vow with the intention of forming a family. Homosexual union is incapable of such a prospect. I disagree with the view of homosexuality, not to say I discriminate homosexuals. But let it also be noted that truth is independent of opinion. Truth is exclusive by nature, and therefore opinion can only observe or deny it.
