Committed, monogamous relationships are good for society. I would rather see gay couples in life long unions than running around from one guy to another.

I believe that every person has the right to love whom they desire. For it's not desire that gay people want it's what god installed in them. If people would open there hearts and not there minds they would understand that god made each and everyone of use. So who do you think made a gay person have those desires? I know your going to say the devil but all people are gods creation and children first and foremost. Let them live there lives in peace and not the hate that our children have been tought and passed down to each generation. It's not hurting you, only the person that loves there partner and doesn't have the same rights as a man and a woman. No I'm not gay and yes I had to come to terms with a gay child. One that hide it for years afraid of what I would think. So sad that it really wasn't a life for my child. If I can open my heart to her and her partner then anyone can come to terms with same sex marriage. It was Oboma who said we need change. Well I know that this is one of those changes. We can and need to find a way to do so. So that we don't have anymore children commiting suicide or cutting themselfs. Or doing drugs to try and numb the pain that they go through day in and day out. What if it were your child would you turn your back? Imagine your child came home and said I'm gay. Would you hate them and turn them away? I would hope not becasue a parent love unconditional right? No you would deal with it and move on and hope that your child is in a happy and loving relationship. Someone who loves them for who they are, and not into something worse like a spouse who beats them drugs or worse, DEAD. We can grow people and it takes people to stand up and let others know it's not ok to tell someone that it's shamefull for their feelings. Can't we all just agree to get along and stop trying to control others lives because it's not your belief. And yes I am a christian and I know that god is almighty and one day (soon) gay people can win their god given right. To be who they are and marry who they love. Thank you and I pray that gay people get the chance to marry. Not long ago people thought that to own a slave was the right thing, and thank god we don't believe that anymore. I believe that this as bad for gays and they should have the right to marry the love of their life and have a family if they wish.

i support for the simple fact that love is love, and it should not matter if a man loves another man or a woman loves another woman.

Marriage is a sacred union between man and woman as defined in the book of Genesis. That is FACT. It cannot be between man and man or woman and woman according to God's Law. Athiests and non-believers have attacked marriage before and lost. The church stands firm and united against sham marriages that defile the sacrament. A great majority of Christians oppose gay marriage. Only a few have been sold the popular culture and want to break the bond God himself created in the Garden of Eden.

There is no question that homosexuality is sin. It is a sin just like robbery, assault and even murder. The church hates the sin but will seek to help and forgive the sinner. I have former homosexuals in my congregation who have turned their back on that lifestyle continue to fight it daily with the church's help. We have discovered that Gays ARE NOT born that way as popular culture tries to convince us through TV, movies and magazines. Rather, it is a compulsion developed during a child's early years in most cases, later in some. It can be cured.

No, this country will decline and fall with the present culture dictated by poison TV, movies and magazines both subliminally and directly. Perhaps that is the goal of those who write and produce TV, movies and magazines.

The bible also supports one man and multiple wives (some as young at 10), one man and slaves, one man and concubines, wives acquired through arranged marriages as a means to distribute property, wives gained for political alliances, women taken as slaves from defeated enemies, and slaves from defeated enemies. But hey, marriage never existed before Christianity, right?

Marriage is a union of male and female, and not between two males, or two females. Adam and Eve were created by God as man and woman, and a union in marriage should be no more than that.

There's nothing wrong with homosexuals or homosexuality but that's no justification to rewrite marriage law for everyone without the consent of the governed. Gay rights are human rights, not the special right to define marriage based on sexual predilection. If sexual orientation justified marriage law then bisexuality justifies bigamy; but we've already won this issue.

Best of wishes to all; the issue isn't freedom but ersatz equality based on the idea male and female roles and relationships are meaningless; that husband or wife be disposable in marriage. It is the belief in segregation; same sex marriage is sex segregation against our perfect affirmative action, diversity and sex integrated one man and one woman marriage.
