I would never tell a religion they had to except it, but legally, two adults should be able to contract for "marriage" a "civil union" or whatever you want to call it.

Im about to make some folks mad... But hey it's MY RIGHT to FREEDOM OF SPEACH!

Being gay, and wanting the same gender IS a MENTAL issue. I don't care what ANYONE say's!
Let's not even make this a God issue. Let's look at the FACTS! If the same gender were meant to be together, then it wouldn't take a MAN & WOMAN to make a baby!! It's really that plain and simple.

Now when I see a gay person, it makes me think that there has to be something wrong mentally. Because clearly they desire to be the opposite of the gender they were born. That's no different than a mental person in the mental hospital thinking they are a sunflower.
Do we go along with it, and pretend with that person that they are a sunflower? NO! We put them in the mental ward and medicate them, we put them through mental testing, we try everything to help that person.
Now I agree that we as Americans have freedom and rights. But I don't think being married to the same sex is really an issue of freedom or rights.
If you want to be with the same gender, then go on be with the same gender, but leave it at that. Other wise if you think you have the "RIGHT" to marry the same gender so that you can bring insurance and all that into play, then screw it!
I want it to be made legal for people to be able to marry thier cars, houses, boats, purses, shoes ect....

What does that sound stupid? Or mental?......... No more than marrying the same sex!

And for those who say that same sex couples can just adopt. Well, that doesn't proove your point either. Because people who put babies up for adoption are just more people with issues. People who didn't use protection and were careless and just got pregnant, or people who had no business having babies in the first place.

Having babies was meant for a loving couple, MAN & WOMAN!

Like I said, other wise a man would be able to get a man pregnant and a woman would be able to get a woman pregnant.

I make this promise now! If this gay marriage thing continues, that I will fight for the right for any person to be able to marry ANY thing, object or animal that they so desire. To simpy proove my point! And I'm positive I will be able to get MANY people to follow the fight with me!

let's discuss the santicty of marriage. there isnt any. the average length of marriage in the US is 3 years. that's down a year from '08. that dosent seem so bad until you consider that's counting older people who've been married 45 years. it takes a LOT of 6 month marriages to bring that down to 3 years. sorry straight people. you blew it. you already know we're gonna win.

I'm not gay, but have no problems with it.. this person i'm quoting still believes in the bible.. I have no problem with it, but to me bible thumpers have killed more people than gays. i think we should rise up and ban the bible, because many sick acts have been done in the name of god.. and maybe god should be arrested if he exists since he never stopped these horrible crimes. Not stopping a crime would make him an accessory.

Honestly i have nothing against the bible, but it does make me sick when people have to judge others.. Wait! isnt that a sin in the bible..

All Y'all need to put on your big girl panties and deal with it. There have been gays and lesbians since biblical times or God wouldn't have had a reason to say what he did about them.
Times are changing and more of them are out of the closet. Their sexual orientation is not a mental problem you can't fix it no matter what you try.
No medicine or psychiatric consultations are gonna make this "thing" go away.
And their sexual preferences are none of your business, just as your sexual preferences are no one's business.

You don't make me mad, but they used to say being left handed is mental ---- My cousin who's 15 years older than me was made to use his right hand in school and I could use my left hand without it being hit with a ruler. It's the same idea.... Actually they used to cut your left hand off if you used it for anything other than wiping your ars... same idea ...... I hope I live long enough to see to see gay folks as free as white folks used to be..... it's not whether you want to be with the same gender, it's what feels natural after you are born..... You should feel fortunate to not have that that natural feel to be with the same sex.... Living like something is wrong with you because society doesn't or won't accept it is pure hell --- being like you wanted me to wipe my ars with my right hand. Try your opposite hand for once and that's what it feels like being gay all your life and your parents would kill you if you admit it....what a horrible way for society to act; and to go to the Good Book for proof is insane---- probably some of the men who wrote it were gay..... wanna bet?

Gays should not be allowed to pay taxes. Taxes should be between straights and their government.

when all of this started years ago,it was because one of the persons involved would get ill and not have insurance. Even with the two of them working.
Everyone has a choice to make. I make mine not to support the homosexuals anywhere.

i'm sure some genius will come up with a "cure" or suggest some certain hormone during pregnacy. i think the REAL questions are: does this need to be cured? should we be tolerant of other peoples' differences? should gay people be "ok" with themselves as homosexuals? and of corse, do they deserve the right to marriage?

billy-sue, I understand what you are saying but as I said before, there is no cure. Can't take a magic pill, drink a magic elixir, or take a shot the will "cure" them. People just need to leave them alone and let them live their lives the way they want to.

It is fairly simple this whole - who is allowed to have a legal marriage that includes an unspoken agenda with gay tactics included. Come on, nothing is gonna make that sort of relating normal.
Nothing!

How can 1 man plus 1 other man be a married couple or a Husband and Wife in the eyes of the Almighty? Adam and Eve. Not Adam and Steve. Or how can 1 woman and another woman become Husband and Wife in the eyes of the Almighty?

A state recognized marriage won't change a Holy Marriage in the eyes of the Almighty. Even if states issue legal papers it ain't morally ever going to be a marriage that is ordained of the Almighty.

Marriage is a sacred union between 1 Man and 1 Woman. Sums it up for me. One man + One woman = Holy Matrimony!

It is not a duty of the state to determine the legality of individual marriages as performed by a church. The state merely needs to record the contract as a legal document, a business agreement between two individuals.

i agree, slowpokey. But, do they NEED to be cured? they can't reproduce. 2 gay men don't just have little gay sons. gays and lesbians die without lineiage everyday. where are all these gays coming from? straight people, that's where. it's a little different than race, 2 white people don't just have a little asian baby and try to bleach it's skin and get plastic surgury done. but straight people have gay kids ALL THE TIME. home is somewhere you're supposed to be safe from being hated on. little gay kids have to go home to "go play catch with daddy, honey, so you wont be a little pussy" i belive it's those kind of things that make this a dangerous subject to hate. if a doctor could do an untrasound and say "oops, you got a little butt-pirate in there. but that's ok, i can just give you this shot and he'll be straight as an arrow" i'd bet most parents would grab the shot and give it to themselves. but, it'd take a really strong mom and dad to say "no that's ok. i'll love him no matter what, and even though his life will be a little tougher, i'll always be there for him."

have a lot of gay and strait friends, i have no problem trusting my gay friends with anything.. they accept their issues and dont usually have ill will twards others.. i know they are kinder to their fellow man than even christians.. They have harmed less people than christians.. so whats the problem with them.. everyone has their prejudices but most of us grow up.

I feel everyone has the right to have their own opinions. Personally it doesn't matter to me. Times are just changing and everyone will believe in what they want to. But there isn't a need to be hurtful and so close minded towards others responses. But guess that's just me, I respect whoever enough to hear their point of view
