    @Aquaria:  I see both sides of the issue too. But I think we can agree that nobody should have the right to oppress anybody else with their personal beliefs. That’s wrong and it’s not something I think should be defended.

    I feel that same-sex marriage is the segregation of this generation. Now we look back and think, “How did people ever think that discrimating against someone because of the color of their skin was okay or even made any sense at all?”

    That’s how I feel about same-sex marriage. In what world is it okay to tell two people who love each that they can’t get married because they happen to have the same gender? It’s embarrassing that there are people who rationalize any sort of discrimation this day and age.

    My Fiance is very politically conservative but he’s not religious. I don’t like this, but he was against gay marriage when we first met because he just generally didn’t get it, and when he doesn’t care about an issue, he tends to side with his party. (IE gun control even though he never wants a gun). 

     

    I am proud to say that gay marriage is the one thing he has changed his mind about since we met. I pretty much said, why are you against it, how does it affect you in any way, shape or form? (You can argue that for pretty much anything else politically, IMO, but not gay marriage). It’s clearly not a choice and being gay is obviously fairly common. He was kinda like, yeah guess you’re right. Since we met, his cousin has come out and his whole family has kinda loosened up on the issue. Also, gay marriage is now legal in our state. I also think a lot of people with his conservative leanings in this area have warmed up to the idea though.

    You know, I have to say I’m sorry I even implied that conservatives don’t support gay marriage. I don’t like that assumption but I’m too lazy to edit my post.

    @Ap2010:  Yes, I absolutey do. I have never come across a valid argument for preventing same sex marriage. This whole thing about defending ‘traditional marriage’ is bushit. Traditional marriage was a business transaction in which a woman was traded for livestock,land, or an alliance between two families was created. Marrying soley for love is a recent thing and it’s by no means the definition of a ‘traditional marriage’.

    Marriage is whatever we want it to be and to me a beautiful union of love between two souls is the best thing it could possibly be.

    @Sunnyday278:  Agreed!  Except, due to my own issues with seperation of church and state, I wish they could all be civil unions in the eyes of the government… I know that’s probably actually a bigger battle though.

    yup. i support gay marriage. if you love someone, you should be allowed to marry them. gay people should have all the rights that straight people have.

    my Fiance, however, doesn’t think it should be called “marriage”. he supports civil unions, and agrees that they should have all of the same rights that straight couples do. but he doesn’t think it should be called marriage.

    Yes.

    If I have the right to marry the person I love, then so should everyone else.

    Hell, yes. 

     

    Two people in love, regardless of them being same or opposite sex, have every right to be married under the eyes of God and the law. Marriage is the union of two people who pledge to love and honor each other for the rest of their lives. Each of them having a c*ck or vjay-jay doen’t change that in any way.

    Oh, this thread again.

     

    Definitely not my business to tell people who they can/can’t marry. Especially in the eyes of the law. Seriously, gay people have rights and they are entitled to be covered by the same laws straight people are. So the government needs to back off. 

     

    I seriously don’t understand why this is still an issue.

    I believe in marriage equality.

     

    I do not think that laws should be forced upon citizens which are based on religion. This including but not limited to abortion, gay marriage etc.

    For me its not even about gay or straight, its about love.

    I support love and everyone should be able to marry who they love, no matter how they identify themselves. To think otherwise makes you an asshole.
