  • Gays SHOULD be allowed to marry.

    We are all entitled to our opinion and I respect that. We shouldn't keep someone from being happy by not allowing them to marry the same sex. We don't all have the same beliefs and once we understand and accept that, you start seeing the beauty of life. People say marriage should only be between a man and a woman but why can't we look beyond the standards that have been set long before us, these standards have been implemented in us, thus don't see beyond that nor question. A person shouldn't have to live by someone else's standards!!

  • Gays should definitely be able to marry.

    Homosexuality is natural; homosexuality appears in a high number of animals beside humans.
    Homosexuality is not something that just 'popped up' suddenly - it was well known and occasionally practiced before religions such as Christianity and Islam. For example, some Ancient Greeks and Romans were know for homosexual tendencies.
    Marriage provides benefits, while Civil Union does not. Your religion does not affect your sexuality and vice versa - there are many religious homosexuals.
    Abuse because of certain differences is common. Three hundred years ago, African people were very often enslaved, abused, forced to work and sold, as if they were belongings and not humans. A hundred years ago, women were not allowed to work, often faced oppression from their husbands and were rarely allowed to work to make a living. Today, it is the homosexuals that are getting picked on, and soon hopefully this issue will become a thing of the past, as society becomes more understanding and open.
    Just because gay couples can marry, does not mean that the world of 'straight' people will suddenly change. It's not like your children will get bullied because of heterosexuality, or that the Rapture (should God exist) will happen yet nobody will be brought to heaven due to acceptance of homosexuality within society.
    Using Religion to prevent homosexuals from marrying is morally wrong. God never said anything about homosexuality being a sin. Man and women are the means of survival of human race, but considering that there are over seven billion people on Earth at the time of writing this, sudden extinction due to a lack of heterosexual couples is simply impossible.

  • Religion vs. Government

    Religion isnt suppose to interfere with government. Thats whats happening here, they are letting religion come into state and it's effecting the decisions of the law. Also that the law that gays can't marry is going into inequality and taking about the freedom of them, I thought that the people of the united states were suppose to be free but all these laws are taking away from it. This is not a free country anymore, we are pushed around by the government as slaves now.

  • They have a right

    They should be able to get married they have the same right just as everyone else on thus world has. They have the right to be happy with who ever they want to be happy with. So In my opinion they should have the right to get married and live happy.

  • They Have A Right

    People should be able to marry if they love someone. Its like saying that black and white cant marry. Now they can. Why cant gays marry? People and teens are afraid to say that their attracted to their same gender because society is being so harsh on the gays. Its basically a form of bulling. So why wont you let gays marry? Is it because you want to be mean? Is it because you think they shouldn't be treated the same as the rest of us?

  • Yes they should

    First, we're all humans hence we all should have the same rights. Furthermore, we are currently living in a secular state, where religion does not tell us what is right and wrong anymore. In other words, religion may still have somewhat influence in those who believe in its ideology, but Religion does not have the power as the State has. And, according to the last, a union between two people, or marriage, is a right that every citizen has. Therefore, gays should definitely be able to get married.

  • Gays have just as much right to be happy as any other american, and vice versa.

    Marriage is an equal partnership in our modern society. The husband isn't the only one bringing home the bacon in this anymore. The wife isn't always the housekeeper. If homosexual couples are choosing to share their life together, and be just as miserable or happy as other married couples, LET THEM! Besides, why should same-sex marriage matter? Anybody knows its all the same sex!

  • Gays should be allowed to marry

    When it comes to gay marriage I think society needs to calm down and realize something here. Those gay people are in love and their human beings just like the rest of us. Stop being so prideful and see that they deserve to be happy and have the same rights as everyone else. No one is above anyone in this world, we are all gods children and he loves us all despite everything. I support gay marriage and equal rights to the end! I think if people opened their hearts a little more to people and the way the world is now and not old customary ways everyone would be OK.

  • It is really wrong that gay couples should marry.

    The same-sex couples not be able to mary... In my personal opinion is wrong and is a sin not is good in the eyes of God...
    God create a married to men and women not for men and men or women and women :/\

    God create a women and the men He did not middles....

  • Gays are out of hand attention grabbers

    Why do we have an epidemic of gays? Because is it popular and has been paraded onto TV as OK. This is immoral it is corrupting our children and underpins the basis of civilization. It is wrong for gays to be able to marry and it is wrong for them to adopt a child.

  • There's no need to re-define marriage for a small subset.

    Marriage is a religious term, not a legal one. There's a lot of confusion and overlap, but a couple can be married before God and not legally married, and vice versa. Religions should be free to determine their own definition of marriage in accordance with their beliefs, and legalizing gay "marriage" would likely lead to discrimination lawsuits against churches who refuse to facilitate or recognize the wedding/marriage.

    That being said, gay couples should absolutely be allowed all the legal privileges associated with marriage. Ideally they would be able to get civil unions (for those who think it sounds too cold and legal, make up your own word for it - just don't go re-defining the terms we already have).

  • Just don't call it marriage

    Obviously it is terrible that gay people suffer from abuse, especially physical. There's no denying that they are still human beings. However, they should not be allowed to get "married." They can be together, live together, whatever they want...But marriage has a set definition and it should not expand beyond that. The line needs to be drawn somewhere, and it starts with this. Also, once they are married and want to adopt I believe that is a really bad household for the child to grow up in. For example, a boy who is raised by two moms might grow up with issues because he never had a dad in his life, much like some people who grow up with a single mom. Same thing for two dads with a daughter. She wouldn't have a mother figure in her life. Plus, the child of a gay couple has a good chance of growing up to be gay as well because people are influenced by their parents whether they realize it or not. Then there would be exponential growth of gay people and there could be no more straight couples, completely twisting our society. I know it sounds extreme but think about it....

  • Same sex relationships aren't marriage

    Whether homosexual people decide to have relationships is not a matter for me or the state. But Marriage is an institution between a man and a women as it has been since probably the beginning of human existance. It is not appropriate to give the same name to something that is different. The love and some relational aspects may be the same, but physically and biologically there is undeniable differences. This should be reflected in a different name. We don't call things that are similar the same name, like we have different names for different fruits, different names for brothers, cousins etc. There should be a different name for a same sex relationship as oppossed to an opposite sex relationship. They may still be legally equal, but this difference and the religious significance of marriage to so many must be recognised.

  • Trying to fit a square peg in a round hole - rendering definition of "marriage" meaningless

    I cannot deny that gays should have a place in society. I value their contributions to society and especially the arts and media. But is that place "marriage"? Probably not. Differences should be embraced. From a legal perspective, calling them "married" is giving them all the same rights that heterosexual couples have. What if there are rights that gay partnerships should have that heterosexuals should not? Gays would be limited. They should have a separate classification, and each right should be looked at independently of the other. Let them develop their own place in society overrtime. They should not by virtue of being called "married" have all the same rights as heterosexual couples. Scientifically, they are different! Differences should be embraced, not done away with! They naturally cannot have kids, why should they be given the right to have kids? They argue their love is the same as a heterosexual couple, but it is not! It cannot result in a child that is a reflection of a male and a female. I am not saying they do not love. But their love is different, just as love between a daughter and a father is different than the love of a husband and a wife. People need to stop being so narrow minded and black and white.

    Also, I have a major problem with the way in which the gay movement has obtained rights. It has not been until recently that popular vote has given them the rights to be "married". Popular vote has always been against such rights. The gay movement started with judges and people in influential positions overturning popular vote, whether through court opinion or legislation. It wasn't until 2012 that popular vote actually supported gays in a few states only. Also, why is the movement pushing so hard for national recognition? Leave the democratic process alone, and let each state decide for itself. Let the people truly decide!

    Lastly, by including homosexuals in the definition of marriage, the definition is losing its meaning. Why not let a father marry his daughter? Why not let a brother and sister marry? Why not let one guy marry multiple woman. People need to take a serious and hard look at the effects on society in the event gays can be "married" in the same way a woman and man are "married".

  • Where do you draw the line

    This ruins the already fragile notion of marriage. 50% of marriages already end in divorce. Gay people are probably the most promiscuous and unfaithful people i have met and i think that if they were given the opportunity to marry , it would only increase the percentage of divorces in the US!

  • Gays shouldn't be allowed to marry.

    It's ridiculous. Let people be gay if they want to, but for gods sake lets not take it so seriously. What is this explosion in homosexuality anyway? Where does it come from? I'm sure, in time, it'll all blow over so in the meantime lets not go around compromising society's foundations.

  • GAY MARRIAGE IS WRONG

    Gay couples should not be able to get married, and I am really mad that it was on the ballet for the election! I think that it is wrong because you are born from a man and a women not a woman and a women or a man and a man!
    Also once you let gay couples get married a whole bunch of other questions are raised. Some of those questions will be why cant a man have more than one wife and why cant a wife have more than one husband? Why cant adults marry minors? We have the law that man and women that are both adults can marry yes there are a few little exceptions, like minors marrying minors with parents consent, but for the most part it is just man and women that are old enough to be married to each other!

  • No, this leads to things getting out of hand

    If Gay marriage is legalized, it will lead to changing of the definition of marriage changing. This will allow pedophilia marrying, destroy the institution of marriage, it is not going to work out. As for "Government has no place in dictating morality in people" It does if you are saying government should intervene in letting them marry. In reality, it screws with the natural order of society and presents way to much controversy to make it legalized.
