Opponents of gay marriage have a wide range of complaints. Which while I respect and understand, feel should not be allowed to hold the rest of us back in the 15th Century.

In general these vary from a strict religious belief arising from the Bible's objection to homosexuality in general. Others have no problem with gay marriage beyond the use of the word 'marriage' which they believe legally defines a union between a man or a woman.

The Bible says homosexuality is a sin, so you have people saying homosexuals shouldn't get married. But lying is also a sin. Liars still get married. Stealing is a sin. Thieves get married. We as Christians should not be about the business of deciding which sinners to chastise. We shouldn't judge anyone at all. Period. If I am a true Christian, I should treat everyone equally, even if they don't interpret the Bible like I do.

I think everyone has a right to be married. Gay, straight, bi, trans gender. Who are we to decide who gets to marry and be happy.

Who cares? Gays should be allowed to give all their money to lawyers in messy divorces just like everyone else.

My question is that if gay marrage is legal, would churches be obligated and forced to do gay marrages?

That said, you know the next step is 'Gays should be allowed equil consideration for adoption', or 'Affermitive action for gay adoption'. You know it is going there next. My major objection.

I think any consenting adult who wants to get married should be able to regardless of sex. It's a right afforded to everyone in this country except same-sex couples, and marriage has never been defined as "one man, one woman" in this country. We are a nation of separation and church and state, and on a civil, secular level, it is unconstitutional to deny rights based on sexual orientation.

I feel that if you want to get married you should be able to. The only problem I have with either gay men or lesbians is when and I have had this happen, they try to project themselves onto you. I am 100% fine with a gay couple or lesbian couple, just please please please don't pressure me to be. This happened when I was in high school, so maybe being young and not understanding yourself, your body your sexual orientation completely leads to this I don't know. I wish everyone a happy life no matter who they love. What is life if you don't have the love of someone no matter if they are the same sex or not. I think people need to just get over it and move on. This is the twenty-first century and all. Hope this helps!!

I want the right to inherit or have my partner inherit without two thousand dollars in legal bills to set up a complicated trust so she would inherit. I want to be able to put her on my insurance. I want to not be thrown out of the ICU when her "real family" shows up after a car wreck. That happened to me in Austin TX in 1999. I want our children to have the security of two legal parents.
