Same-sex marriage is a political issue for many reasons. First, marriage overall is a political issue because it is endorsed by the government with certain privileges. Second, politics is all about freedom and equality after all right? Therefore that makes Same-sex marriage a political issue. Lastly, I believe it's a political issue because it is something multiple people stand for/stand against and this is an issue that the government should be more involved in. Hope this helped and answered your question! :)

Gay marriage should be aloud because everyone should have the same right to marry the people that they love after all you cant choose the people you fall in love with you cant choose your sexuality and you cant change that no matter what people say or want they do.
If you were gay how would you feel if you couldn't see the person you loved whilst on their death bed because of idiot rights.
I like potatoes and therefore it needs to be political. JK im a christian and God exists, fact not opinion. Weather you believe it or not, it's your choice. I dont believe in gay marriage, but it is law, and i cant change that. I still love lgbt people no matter what, in fact i lve everyone, and we Christians need to preach to these mentally sick people. God will one day judge the earth but there is still time.
If this isn't passed in the entire country it is going against the constitution. As stated in the first amendment we have freedom of expression. And why is it such a bad thing for people to be gay? They can't help that they are its just a difference. We are supposed to accept the differences between us. So what is the difference between a gay couple and a straight couple? Does it really matter? I support it and everyone should.
In at least 35 states, gay marriage is legal. And over 64% of the US population lives in a state currently issuing marriage lisences to same-sex couples statewide. Just because some people think it's "gross" does not give them the right to take away someone elses chance at having a life with someone they love. And for religion purposes is also stupid too, not everyone has to believe in the same thing. It's an opinion and your religion shouldn't be shoved down our throats, we have the right to believe in what we want. Of course there will always be people who are 'homophobic' kind of like there are still people that are racist, it is just a flaw in human nature to judge. We just need to keep our minds open.
Marriage of any kind is a political issue, either on the local or national level, because the law would have to be changed to either permit it or not. Because of that, it's obviously a political issue. Opening up marriage to anything other than a traditional marriage (one woman and one man) is something that the people should agree on, because it is changing something that has been standard for many years. What is allowed can only change through the political process.
, marriage would simply be an agreement between consenting adults about the commitment to their relationship. Unfortunately, marriage doesn't work like that. It is a civil institution endorsed by the government that brings with it certain rights, privileges, and statuses. This is what makes marriage itself a political issue. Gay people just want to be able to have the same status in society as everyone else.

Lgbtq people can love one another and, if they wish to spend their lives together that's their choice. No one can deny them that, whether you agree with it or not, it's a choice and we all have our human right to choose freely. However, a marital agreement has it's roots in christian belief, being something that according to the religion was reserved by God. A biblical marriage is for those who want to spend not only their earthly lives but an eternal life together as well. Members of the LGBTQ community should be legally allowed to display their affection although, given the religious roots of a marriage, a different form of paperwork should be given out to those in a homosexual relationship who wish to display their affection on paper.
Love is something that everyone is capable of experiencing, regardless of their sexual orientation. The lack of understanding by our predecessors needs to be completely overruled, in favor of a more accepting and loving point of view. Hate isn't something people are meant to hold on to, regardless of the subject matter.
Unless you are going to be sharing the same bed with the same-sex couple than it has nothing to do with you. I honestly don't get why its even spoken about in politics. If it has to be brought up during presidency, than lets discuss heterosexual marriages too. It shouldn't even be something everyone in the world has to discuss so they can be able to agree with it together.
Why should we judge people for being people they have the same rights as we do! They are still people just like how race and religion doesn't matter now a days why should being gay and trying to stop them from being gay just because we dont like the idea? My question to you is as humans why do we feel the need to judge people?
It can be a tough one, as plenty of politicians worldwide have voiced their political opinions on gay rights issues. But this does not in turn make the gay rights issues, such as marriage equality, a political issue. The other reason I can see as to why people want it to be a political issue is so that they can be against it without being labeled homophobes or bigots. Equal rights for all!!
Those calling for legalization of same-sex marriage point to its being illegal as a gross violation of equality and human rights. The problem with that argument is that gays and lesbians are allowed to have all the sex they want.; it's only marriage benefits that are being denied. Whether that is just or not is a separate discussion, but in the scheme of things, whether 1-2% of the population should receive specific benefits is not exactly the most vital thing we should be worrying about right now.
Gay marriage is not a political issue at all, it is a social issue. To try to make it a political issue is wrong. Unfortunately though it has become such a hot bed of controversy that politics has to step in. Even politics hasn't found a solution for the issue yet though.
There's no need for gay marriage to be a political issue. The only reason it's a political issue to begin with is because a subset of conservatism that is very evil decided they could manipulate the feelings of people garner votes. Equal marriage should not be a political issue, and those conservatives should be ashamed for making it so.
Gay marriage shouldn't be a political issue, it should be a human right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. If heterosexuals have the right to get married, the equal rights clause in the founding document's preamble means everyone has the right to get married. If one class of people in America have rights, so should all citizens. It took more than 100 years and bloody civil war to realize slaves had rights. It took another 100 years to make sure segregation was illegal. Let's not create another version of second-class citizens by denying the rights of anyone, not just heterosexuals, to get married. It's just that simple.
Even though I think gay marriage will always remain a political issue, I still don't think it should be one. Whether or not someone is offended by gay marriages, and I know some are, the bottom line is, you love who you love, and that's always a wonderful thing. I see nothing wrong with gay marriages.
