Why should gender be at all relevant to whether people can marry? If the two involved are adult and competent to make decisions, they should be able to marry

Equality. Everyone deserves equal rights. As long as there are financial, civil, and legal rights tied to the institution of marriage then all citizens should be entitled to marry the person of their choice.

By nature men and women are found suitable for marriage. Marriage is seen as the unity between man and woman that possess far greater connection than living together.

Marriage is more than love and sex. Marriage takes the two different natures of men and women to be constituted as something other than living in the same house.

Two people who possess the same nature within the same gender cannot in any manner provide that combination of diversity that is found in a family. Marriage is more than love. Love is not the same thing as sex. Refusing understanding the meaning of what marriage really is is an attempt to make marriage something nature never intended it to be.

The attempt to do so is to under mind the religious nature of mankind. From what I have seen many homosexuals desire to push the Christian faith out of America and in doing so they take their agenda before the courts to over rule any votes the American people have made in the hopes that their lifestyle and behavior can be seen as normal.

Homosexuals are not a class of people by any standard. To be recognized as a new gender, race, species, or culture is a blind hope to push the lifestyle on those who do not agree.

If you wish to practice homosexuality, there is nothing that says you cannot. You have the free will to do as you wish but to be counted as something other than what has been seen for thousands of years as natural and acceptable is not natural.

Same Sex Marriage provides no benefit to society. Homosexuality is an unhealthy lifestyle. I agree, those who do not agree with homosexuality or Same Sex Marriage do not need to practice it. However, many of us care about people and have a right to vote according to our values and morals without the fear that some group of people will take measures into their own hands to seek legal recourse to over run the voice of the people.

You have no right to impose your view on others who don't share it! Nweither do I have the right to demand that you do same sex marriages in your church if you do marriages at all!

Friday, June 24th 2011 will go down in infamy in the State of New York as the day that four trusted Republican legislators sold their souls and their votes to the Sodomites and *** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

We have it in our power as voters to ensure that this never happens again with these false Republicans. These are their names...

(1) JAMES S. ALESI - Monroe County New York

*** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

(2) MARK GRISANTI - Western New York

*** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

(3) ROY J. MCDONALD - Rensselaer, Saratoga Counties New York

*** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

(4) STEVEN M. SALAND - Columbia and Dutchess Counties New York

*** VOTED AGAINST PRESERVING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ***

NEVER FORGET THOSE FOUR NAMES.

If any of these these creatures ever dares to run for public office in this State again...

Daughter of two mums, I experienced just as normal childhood as someone with a mum and dad would. There's nothing wrong with it at all.

I support equality and I don't think sexual orientation should define whether or not a person is looked upon as an equal in the eyes of the law.
