marriage is a religous act , these people cannot disrespect our religous act its what muslims , christans, jews , hindus and other religons do. How can we trust these perverts with children?? its like saying its okay let the child molester baby sit my son or daughter , we cannot let our children think not for a second that being gay is okay. because its not these people are mentally unstable they only are gay because of some kind of trama which is fact and to give them rights will only enable them to victumize others ... All of us god fearing people must march thru those streets where gays are supported and let them know that this land is still ruled by the followers of god, and the must respect our way , we do not hate we want to help and the first step is to admit that you have a problem and try to help these mentally abused people come on the right path..But we will never let a lie become the truth BEING GAY IS WRONG IT WILL ALWAYS BE WRONG THOSE WHO ARE GAY NEED HELP NOT HATE..MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA AND ITS PEOPLE.

I think everyone should be happy who they want to be with and no one can change that.

Because it doesn't hurt anyone, and we're all supposed to have *equal* rights.

So I'm mentally unstable because I'm a lesbian? That is an ignorant statement. I'm completely 100% mentally stable and proud to say that I am a woman who loves other women.

You're an idiot. When you learn to spell and get your facts straight, then you should vote. Being gay is not wrong and it will never be wrong and no written scripture will ever tell me otherwise. I'm straight, so what right have I to decide upon the union of two people who love each other when it's none of my concern? Exactly, I have no right and neither do you. I honestly don't know how you can live with yourself when you consciously support the heartbreak of millions of people.

The fact that there is even an 'oppose' section completely baffles me. That should be replaced with the word 'hate' or better yet, 'idiots'.

Everyone has the right to marry the one they love. Noone should be able to take that away from them!

It's just the right thing to do. If straight people can marry & be miserable gay people should also be afforded that same right.

I agree that if they pay taxes they should have the right to a marriage like tax and benefits. But slightly off topic, It amazes me at how people openly say "Oh I have nothing against them" and then behind doors you hear the real side. these people are only saying this because of business or fear of being labeled bigoted and it affecting their pocketbooks. I know plenty of people like this. and many of them are great actors at doing so. I would love to go back in time and video record much of these conversations. and not an angry person at an angry moment who may say something they don't truly mean, but conversation after conversation of ridding people who are gay. never thinking they might have children turn out to be gay. and they had problems with people of race as well. but the people who have a foot in the door of prosper will never be doubted. So be careful who you think might be your friends and back your opinions because they might hate the living crud out of your lifestyle.
