    Hell yes. It is ridiculous that we continuously, as a nation, think it is our job to rob people of human rights. It makes me sad to live in Utah because I’m sure it will be one of the last states to legalize gay marriage if it is not mandated on a national level. As soon as I’m done with school here though I will be outta here!

    I voted yes, because  i think that it is the right thing to do, but I have a question and please forgive me for being ingnorant. What is the difference between marrage and a civil union?

    My province held the first legally recognized same-sex marriage in the world! I know that I can’t claim any responsibility for that, but it still makes me happy.

    I feel that it should be left to a state to decide.. where I live it’s illegal and knowing how Utah is, it’ll probably be illegal forever :/ i feel like people should marry whoever they want in a civil wedding.

    I think the fact that it’s still illegal in certain states and in certain countries is just ass backwards.  I can’t believe this is still even a debate in this day and age. remember when interracial marriage used to be illegal? yeah, it’s just as ignorant as that.

    I used to be anti-gay marriage…but when I thought that, I didnt actually KNOW any gay people. Now that one of my good friends is gay, I cant imagine telling her “nope, no marriage for you lezzies” because shes in love with a woman. How can people loving eachother be a bad thing ever? Seriously. And what business is it of ours to tell them no?

    IN MY OPINION 🙂 

    I Voted no because of my convictions as a Christian and what the word of God says (which is the foundation of my beliefs and convictions) that homosexuality is sexual immorality. 

    That being said. I dont think that homosexuality is a “worse sin” than lying, or lusting over another mans wife, or greed, or premarital sex, etc.  Sin is sin. Plain and simple. they are all in one category and Jesus came to deliver us from sin and give us eternal life. 

    If I was to say “yes” then I would not be that good of a christian would I?

    I stay true to my beliefs in my faith and although its probably the least popular one, it is what I believe is the right one.

    I do not live in a state where gay marriage is legal, but I feel that gay marriage should be legal. I don’t think anyone should tell you who you can and can’t get married. In some states people can marry their uncles, cousins, etc….if marriage was so sacred that would not be possible. Also, if marriage was so sacred people like Kim Kardasian would not be getting married and then divorcing 72 days later. Regardless of whether the state lets them get married or not they will continue to be together and be a family. I love the video that I hope most people have seen of the 19 year old who grew up with two mothers and gave a speech to Iowa to try to get them to legalize it. It’s very powerful!

    @cubaneli: Not trying to be rude here but do you not believe in the principle of seperation of church and state? Because that is a principle that the U.S. was founded on. I have no problem if you want to view homosexuality as a sin but gay marriage is not a religious right, it’s a human right.

    @MmeSilverBullet: love what you said 🙂 I’m a christian as well and I feel like gays should be able to marry. I felt a little guilty when I was answering questions to my priest when he was interviewing Fiance and I before setting our date at the church, and he asked that by marrying in the catholic church that I acknowledge marriage is only between a man and a woman, and I said yes even tho i don’t fully agree with that :/
