I think everyone should have the right to marry and receive the same benefits that men and women do. Letting gay people marry is in no way an attack on the institution of marriage. Straight people don't need any help messing that up. They're doing just fine on their own. I am not talking about a religious service, but one in which the government recognizes our rights. This countries constitution was created for all the people, not just a certain few.

When a gays or lesbian enter into some form of relationship, they are committing to not producing a tax payer through pro-creation. Therefore, they should lose rights, not gain more rights than normal people.

Gays and lesbians should lose rights if they enter into any form of committed relationship...here is my rationale...When they enter into a committed relationship with one another, they cannot produce a future taxpayer through natural means (man/woman produces baby=new taxpayer). If they are intentionally not producing taxpayers through these unnatural relationships, then they should lose rights...not gain rights.
Hopefully there will one day be a cure for this mental illness and they can be normal people.

Leave it to some idiot to come up with logic like this. It just blows my mind how ignorant some people can be. I wonder if this ignorance is a learned behavior or were they born like that LOL. So with your rational any couple that doesn't have a "future tax payer" should not have the same rights as other people, and don't say it's a man and woman thing, because may men and women DECIDE they don't want children. What it really boils down to is that you sir are a bigot. Why don't you just stay out of other peoples bedrooms? Do you have some kind latent repressed thoughts? Did you choose to be straight ( I assume your are)? No. You were born straight. What you do in your personal life is nothing to me. I don't care. So appreciations go out to you if you would kindly stay out of other peoples bedrooms, because you don't belong there. Ignorance is such a sad thing.

Now are you trying to tell me that everyone of these wonderful bigots that write things here (not talking about you)never sin. That they are all wonderful people. That heaven awaits them when they die. Well now let's see doesn't the bible say " Judge not least ye be judged also" ummmm what a paradox. If Jesus still walked the earth in human form I wonder what he would think of the people who profess one thing and go out and do the opposite. I'll just leave it up to God on judgment day to decide. He'll take a look at me, and he'll look at all the haters. He'll will just have to make the decision about us.

A union between same sex people is fine with me - They can always adopt - Also isn't this better than producing a bunch of kids and putting them on public assistance - I personally know people who have at least 3 kids and some have 5 on welfare- Besides, who cares about the gay issue - it is in the process of being resolved- I say they should have exactly the same rights - Who says they are mentally ill?

I agree with "amazed" you are a bigot. I have some friends who are gay/lesbian and both couples have produced children by natural means. See, before they were brave enough to come out about their homosexuality they were in heterosexual relationships and they produced children...naturally.

Furthermore, if we used your logic about losing rights because not producing a future tax payer well then there are lots of heterosexual couples that would lose their rights too. There are couples who are infertile and those who simply choose to not have children. Should they also lose their rights? I don't think so...that's foolish.

Ok, Pete you got your attention for the day I hope you are happy.

I think that all people should be encouraged to enter into some form of legalized relationship (marriage, civil union) because they means that will be two less people who will be likely to be spreading diseases. They will be more likely to be covered by insurance which means lower premiums for me and mine. And if I have a problem with one of them I can call the police. See, I used to live next door to a gay couple and they would fight and make noise. The police refused to get involved because they were not married. I don't know the reasoning really but that is what the jerk off police man said. Whatever...

And this thing about finding a cure for mental illness one day. Were you referring to your own?

"Everyone has the right to be happy".-False..where did you come up with that?

Gays have the same rights as everyone else...No different. Name one right they don't have!

Marriage, by definition, is between men and women. Don't confuse it with divorce. Gays can get married. However; they must follow the definition of marriage and select someone of the opposite sex.

If you think your insurance premiums would drop if marriage was allowed, you are wrong. Your thoughts must be running backwards.

Let me see if I understand where you are coming from. You are saying that you think that not everyone has the right to be happy? Where did you get that from? What country are you from? It is in our constitution, the American constitution. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

I think we are all talking about changing the definition of marriage.

My insurance premiums would be lower not because marriage was allowed but because there would be more people buying the same insurance I am and that usually causes insurance costs to lower.

Oh boy...what country are YOU from!!!! Sorry to tell you...it is NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION!!!
Anyhow...that would be the "pusuit of happiness" which is very different than "the right to be happy"...but this doesn't matter anyhow. "Happiness" is never mentioned in the U.S. Constitution.
Please read your history book...or have someone read it to you.

Very good point, I have not considered that angle. Those people are placing a burden on future generations by not having offsprings pulling their weight in the economy.

a lot of people do that, gay and straight. Then there are all the straights that produce useless humans that put more of a burden on society. At least the gays/lesbians can adopt the throw away babies the straights put in the dumpsters.

Please provide one example of a gay couple adopting a baby that was thrown in a dumpster by a "straight"....you can't.
There are no examples of your fairytale fantasy.

Fortunately the "straights" produce enough taxpayers to carry the others. They even are able to provide taxpayer paid mental health services to the gay/lesbian segment of the population. I have not lost hope for a cure to this scourge.
