    I am a Christian and I am 100% for marriage equality. I cannot wrap my head around trying to dictate who people can love or marry (not including things such as incest and beastiality, obviously).

    I’m atheist and want any two consensual adults to be able to marry regardless of creed, color, gender, religion, political standpoints, favorite color, lefty or righty, etc.

    I’ve never heard a non-religious argument against gay marriage, so I don’t know why a secular person would ever be against same-sex marriage. 

    Glad to see the poll reflect that!

    I was raised Catholic but am not practicing.  I do believe in God and heaven and all that good stuff.

    I believe that two consenting adults have the right to be happy.  If that includes marriage so be it.   What gives anyone the right to take that away from people?

    I would love to hear from the person who listed agnostic and is against gay marriage. I don’t want anyone to pick on anyone or start any fights, but I’d be fascinated to know the reason behind the thinking. I, too, have never heard of anyone who isn’t religious who would be against gay marriage and had always assumed that any thoughts against gay marriage had to be religious at their core.

    Unless it’s the kind of erpson who’s against anyone getting married. I’ve ehard of that before. The idea that marriage as an institution, regardless of sexual orientation, should be gotten rid of. Perhaps the better wording for the poll would be “marriage equality.”

    I’m an atheist and completely support gay marriage. Anyone who is in a committed, loving relationship should be able to have the same rights as us hetero’s do regardless of what they have in their pants.

    I’m an atheist and I am definitely for marriage equality.  A committment between consenting adults is none of my business.

    I am absolutely for gay marriage. I don’t think anyone, especially the government, has a right to tell someone who they can or cannot marry. FI’s older sister and younger brother are both homosexual and they all grew up in a catholic family. Obviously it wasn’t easy for their parents, but they love them just the same and they don’t ever butt in or try to change them. FI’s sister had a commitment cermony at the end of March and it was beautiful. A majority of their catholic family was there to witness and celebrate with them. It’s just a shame that they can’t legally be married in the state they live in even though they’ve been together for nearly 10 years and are planning to have children soon. I am so happy that Obama finally took a stand on the topic as well.

    Atheist and for gay marriage. My twin sister is gay, I don’t feel I’m superior to her, she deserves the same rights as me.

    Atheist for gay marriage


    I have to say that my father is an agnostic atheist who is AGAINST gay marriage because he has some wacky idea that gay people will ‘marry’ friends so they can get health insurance or some crap–doesn’t make any sense, but then again he rarely does
