• 100% YES

    My brother is gay and I know what he goes through and went through when he was younger. I dont see the problem with gay marriage. They are just like us but they like the opposite sex. Thats no problem. And raising children! Go for it! They deserve children just as much as we do. I read an article the other day saying how gays shouldnt be able to adopt because theres not a mother and a father. So does that mean parents that are divorced or widowed should get there kids taken away? Just doesnt make sense!

  • What hell is wrong with you people?

    First of all, it's not a choice to be gay. You don't chose who you love, you just do. Second, using the Bible as a reason is complete bull. God created everyone equal. And you know what? If you tried to bring that into an argument with the government, they'd be forced to not listen. Separation of Church and State. If you're trying to legalize something, you can't use the Bible as an excuse. But if you are, it also says "Judge not lest ye be judged." If you're a good freaking Christian you don't DARE judge other people. Third of all, the person that said crap about freaks, WE'RE ALL FREAKS. And guess what? You're a freak. People have the right to express themselves however they want. You have no say. If they want to wear a freaking dinosaur costume to the supermarket, THEY CAN. Really, if they're comfortable, then why should you care?

  • God doesn't care.

    Although some people may think that just by being gay, you are automatically going to hell, this is not the case. God, although some people might believe that he does, cannot judge or hate people no matter what that person has done in their physical lives, because he does not have the power to do so. God does not possess the ability to hate, judge, smite or whatever the case may be. God only has the power to create, and God has created only the things that bring peace and happiness to the world. God's message to the world is love, not hatred.


    Yes, gay marriage is banned according to the Bible; however it also says, thou shall not lie, steal, kill, nor disrespect thy mother nor father. Everyone has told a lie before, and disrespected mother and father. James 9:10-11 says, Who are you to judge your brother and sister? If you judge, you are not doing the law but going against the law. There is only one judge, he can save you, and break you, so who are you to judge your neighbor?

  • Gays are BORN gay. They do not CHOOSE to be gay.

    Why would any one choose a life of humiliation, discrimination, and bullying? Gay people can't help being attracted to the same sex. It is in their nature. This government separates church and state. Not legalizing gay marriage is discriminatory and there is no political reason for its illegalization. The Constitution’s commitments to liberty and equality protects gay marriage. Laws are designed to allow people to act according to their beliefs. If gay marriage is against your beliefs and religion, that is your own opinion and this government allows you to practice them freely. But religious views should have NO effect on the government's control of who can and cannot get married. This country is not free nor equal. For centuries and decades we fought for the termination of slavery, blacks' rights, women's' rights, desegregation, immigration rights, and now gay rights. This is a never ending war for equality. Same sex marriage is a civil right. If the government can control marriage, then there are reasons to believe the government has taken advantage of its power.

  • You are not to judge.

    Only God can judge them and God and Jesus love all their children. For you to judge them is none of your business for they have not done anything wrong to you. They did not wake every day to impress you. So deal with it. We are here and we are not going anywhere.

  • Gay Marriage Should Be Legalized Nationwide

    Gay marriage should be legalized nationwide. Gay couples have just as much of a right to marry as heterosexual couples. Not letting gay couples get married is a form of discrimination. We live in the land of equality, and tell me, does letting heterosexual couples but not homosexual couples get married equal? I don't think so. People need to open up their minds and stop being so uptight. If getting married is the business of only the couple, why does it matter to anyone else if they get married? Love is love. No one should be denied of their right to marry the one they love, boy or girl.

  • Everyone should be equal

    Why is it fair to treat others wrong because of something they don't have any choice over. I never chose to be straight and honestly why would a gay person CHOOSE to have all that hate in their life? Honestly, you think they want to be bullied to the point where they contemplate suicide? Of course not. Honestly it was the same with slavery, now 120 years later we realize how horribly wrong we were and I hope it will be like that for homosexuals too. The younger generations are a lot more understanding now and i'm not trying to sound arrogant but we're smarter too. Many things I'm learning in MIDDLE school my mom has told me she didn't learn until her last years in high school. Overall, homosexuals should have the exact same rights as any heterosexual.

  • Child Adoption: Rescued Orphans.

    There are so many reasons why gay marriage should be legalized, one of which being child adoption. Our orphanages aren't full, but we want them to be as empty as possible. Gay couples biologically can't have children on their own. Everyone knows that. However, many gay couples that want children would revert to adopting. That means that a lot more of orphans would be given loving parents, a better home, and a proper education.

  • Yes, no question.

    And I'm not going to say some crap like "They deserve equal rights." They do, but it's not my point. My point is that christians main argument is rubbish. "It destroys the sanctity of marriage!" Yeah, anymore than straight people already do? I doubt it. Let's take a look. Straight people are getting married for the other persons money, or because one of them got knocked up, or because they're an attention hungry celebrity. I'm sorry, but the sanctity of marriage got destroyed a long time ago. If two straight people with no real reason to get married are allowed to be married, then two gay people who want to get married should be allowed.

  • It's All About Choices

    Anyone can have a romantic and/or sexual relationship with anyone they choose. No one is forced to be with anyone. In order to get married, you need to be with someone of the opposite gender. If that's not something you want to do, then realize you aren't going to get married either instead of demanding the government needs to change to fit your choices.

  • Homosexuality is a Life Choice

    Due to the fact that homosexuality has been proven to sometimes be a life choice (not always genetic), it would be hypocritical to allow gay marriage, but then not allow incest-marriage, or polygamy, since these are obviously both life choices also. A lot of people simply support something because it sounds nice and seems humanitarian, this can lead to ignorance, hypocrisy, and a detrimental/self destructive policy.

  • This country was built under God.

    This country was built under God, we mention it in our pledge! I would rather see some sort of document that would be like a marriage, make it easier for them to share a house, share a car, etc. Marriage is for a man and a woman, that is the way it has always been, it's how it should always be.

  • Its against the Catholic Religion.

    To those who are religious please take a second to think about it. Its not right. There's a reason for why God created Adam and Eve instead of Adam and Steve! Allowing same sex marriage? That is just as wrong as polygamy! What will be next? If this was legalized? Allowing people to marry animals?

  • i am a Christian and i firmly stand fast to marriage as defined in the Bible by God.

    As i explained in my earlier comment. God gave us the perfect example of marriage , 1 man and 1 woman. Also the Bible condemns any sinful (disobedient) act which includes HOMOSEXUALITY. The Bible even goes as far as naming it directly. For man to try to change the word of God or try to pervert it just so he can have his own way is ridiculous and treason against God's law's. As a God of law, order, truth, mercy and love. He cannot allow any sin to exist in his kingdom. I know what the Bible says and I stand by it.

  • Don't people see farther down the road?

    50-100 years ago, homosexuality was viewed on nearly the same level as pedophilia, and there were very little to no rights for gays. Now gays are accepted in the public eye. How long before pedophiles start marching for rights, and the "progressives" (read liberals) side with them. The argument for why gayness was persecuted in the past is that we were not ready for it or something along those lines. I don't want to see the day when all kinds of perversions are accepted. It needs to stop somewhere.

  • It's not needed and offends people.

    Allowing gay marriage is like when a smoker is smoking next to an anti-Smoker, its rude that you are forcing it on people who don't like it, but its not necessary in the first place. It's basically just something that is causing trouble for no reason. Also, before judging what I said I wanted to conclude I have witnessed first hand that, one of my relatives being gay, you can be perfectly happy without marriage.

  • This is unatural

    They are using the wrong body parts for the wrong reasons. I also think that it is unatural as they will not be able to have their own children,their children will either be adopted or are carried by surrogate mothers... their child will never really be completely natural, not like straight parents.

  • No, it's against God's purpose for the Earth.

    Well, as a Christian person, I strongly believe and stand for what the Bible says, which is that God created a woman to a man. And this commandment should be followed for all his living creatures. Besides, God created the Bible for us to be guided on the right path, which we should follow.

  • God condemns it as sin.

    "If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them" Leviticus 20:13
    To those who think God created homosexuality, well he did not. Man is responsible for his own actions, therefore man created homosexuality and God forbid it.

mar·riage [mar-ij] Show IPA
the social institution under which a man and woman establish their decision to live as husband and wife by legal commitments, religious ceremonies, etc. Antonyms: separation.
a similar institution involving partners of the same gender: gay marriage.
It says "similar" sim·i·lar [sim-uh-ler] Show IPA
having a likeness or resemblance, especially in a general way: two similar houses.
Geometry . (of figures) having the same shape; having corresponding sides proportional and corresponding angles equal: similar triangles.
Mathematics . (of two square matrices) related by means of a similarity transformation.
Where did the liberals responsible for creating a society with no limitations nor boundaries get the idea that gay marriage are hurting us. First we are not opposed to some civil legal commitment go ahead, but do not call it marriage make similar but do not make it the same. It is for a reason that men were born man and women are also born women. Everything in this universe follows an order, call it creation or evolution as it best suits you but everything follows an order of things. Do not compare it with the black people fighting for the rights to become a person ... next time someone will want to marry an animal or may be a corpse and that will also be taken as discrimination.

I don't think it is the government choice in who people should married. I think we can decided ourselve we dont need anybody else help. They are making sound like can control our lives. They have better things to fix than worrying about who people marry when they can be getting there debt cleared..

As probably noted before marriage is a legal contract free of any religious influence, Holy Matrimony is what has to do with religion. If Gay Marriage offends your religion all laws should. Making Holy Matrimony of Gay people illegal would be more appropriate. So STFU

Gay marriage is just a proof of statement of love between 2 men or 2 women who are showing love to each other and create a real family as other heterosexual couples. So why do we prohibit them from doing that? Which means we do not promote the equality as civil right that has been a movement in the past till now?

Gays don't choose to be gays? Is just the same as people not choosing to be a male or a female.So please just let them be and let them get married to the person they love.

Gay marriage should be legalized because there are legal advantages of being married, the rate of adoptions will increase, and children with married parents are better off growing up.

If you are gay and have a partner, and you two are in a very committed relationship, and if your partner were to like get hit by a car and be unconscious in the hospital, because you aren't listed as married (because you can't) you wouldn't be aloud to go see them, or make a decision for them. Also because gay couples cannot have children, the number of children orphans would lower significantly, and there are studies that show that children with married parents are physically and mentally more healthy. It is much nicer for a kid to grow up knowing their parents are fully committed to each other by marriage.

Marriage should be only with a man and a woman, not two men or two women together.

Just sitting here, using CTRL+F to search for how many people who oppose gay marriage use the terms "God (290), Bible (163), or Leviticus (11). If you take the time to read them, the majority say the exact same thing (although pro is admittedly fairly repetitive too). Kudos to those who didn't bring religion into this debate, keeping things semi-logical here. Can't expect completely logical arguments though, this is the Internet after all. As for my personal belief, do what you want, as long as all parties involved give consent and you don't force others to conform to your way of life, whether it be sexual preference or religious. Corpses can't give consent, animals can't talk in the first place, and children aren't mature enough to decide most things for themselves anyway. As for polygamy, I have nothing against it. I'd certainly enjoy 4-5 wives. Doesn't mean you have to though.

People say it is a "sin" in the Bible to be gay, but guess what? NOT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD IS A CHRISTIAN!! I think people should be able to marry whoever they please. Just because you find something to be different doesn't mean it is wrong; otherwise say for example someone doesn't watch TV at all in their life, then the guy who finds it to be different will make it mandatory for everyone to watch TV even if they don't want to. How bogus is that? Apparently America is fine with people marrying multiple females/males as there's a show on TLC that shows the daily life of the family, but people can't marry the same gender. Bullsh*t. My vote: yes.

Not everyone is religious and follows 'God. Unnatural? Unholy? What? If it naturally comes to someone, then it is natural. Why should someone else's marriage/ sexuality matter to you? Let LGBT people be merry and let them marry. It's not fair for the ones who want to marry, have a life and do what ever a normal person would do, since LGBT people are in fact normal. So, how would if feel if this situation were flipped? Homophobic jerks will look so dumb in the next decade or so, looking like racists back then not allowing African Americans, Native Americans and Latinos to do what they want in the ...AHEM 'Land of the Free and opportunity'.

Yes and no. Yes in that it should be legalized. No in that it should be under the control of the government so that it should need a law to make it legal. Wouldn't it be better if (certain parts of) the government didn't make it illegal in the first place, or better yet, if there wasn't a government to make it illegal? Well, I guess that's besides the point. I don't want to turn this into a statist vs. Anarchist debate. However, I will point out my suspicion that this could be a part of a problem/reaction/solution scheme (maybe not since the start but it very well may have turned into one). For those unfamiliar, a reaction/problem/solution scheme is when someone creates a problem, then lets the reaction unfold, then proposes a solution to it, all the while gaining more power. When it comes to the U.S. government, the problem is often created already. For instance, discrimination in the south. The government didn't create racism, but they did impose some discriminatory laws on blacks and businesses there. From a profit standpoint, it doesn't make any sense to ban blacks from your restaurant or to make them sit in the backs of buses. The loss of black customers was not good for business. This segregation originated not (or at least not entirely) from hatred of blacks from business owners, but from Jim Crow laws. Notice the word "laws", enforced by the government. Anyway, they had the problem already. The reaction started in the '60s during the Civil Rights Movement, and the result was the government coming in to increase their power by solving the problem they had helped start. This is similar to today's gay rights movement. The discrimination came from the bigotry of the past and from government laws discriminating against gays (problem already created), the reaction then began, then they began the solution, increasing their power along the way. In conclusion, if there must be a government and it must regulate marriage, then they might as well make gay marriage legal (I voted yes), but at the same time, we need to look out for problem/reaction/solution schemes because they can cause the government to become too big.
