Description:

All people should have the right to marry who they want. Whether they be Straight or Gay. People are People and they should all have the right to happiness and perks (such as insurance) that marriage or a civil union provide.

Anyone should be able to marry whoever they so please no matter what sex their partner is. They should do whatever makes them happy. People who disagree are putting themselves into other people's lives. If you are against it, then how does a stranger's sexuality affect your life? Is being happy so wrong? Letting two people of the same sex get married isn't really harming anyone, so why are so many people against it?
everyone should have the right to marry whoever they want to marry!!! i mean 4 example in some countries alot of ppl have to get marryed no mater wat happens and who it is wat if they do not love that one person?
I think the main issue is that many people confuse homosexuality with LOVE. I am a straight man who loves his fellow brother but in that love I have no desire to have sexual intercourse with my brother. I have friends who I would die for who are men, but have no desire to have sex with them. Homosexuality is the act of sexual intercourse with a person of the same sex. It is a sexual preference. If a father loves his son bad enough and burns with desire to have sexual relations with him when he turns 18, would all of you agree that the father should be allowed to have sexual intercourse with his son? All of you please think about truth, what is perverse? According to what I have been reading, none of you have a right to tell the father and son that they cannot have sexual relations, nor would you take a stand and tell them that it is immoral. There is nothing civil about homosexuality.

Legalise gay marriages
everyone should have the right to marry the one they love. who decided marriage is only for the straight? that is not right. a person doen't chose to be homosexual and just because some of us are gay that means we shouldn't have the right to be happy? no. we should ALL be allowed to marry.
OK! So I'm doing this project for my class on Gay Marriage and I've been reading all the comments on those who aren't for it. I find it so judgemental and ridiculous it's UNBELIEVABLE!! People say that being "GAY" is a a so called "SIN" when it's only their way of being HAPPY!! Imagine that a world where people are happy. But everyone has this mind set on a normal society that they forget about what really is "normal" but the true question is WHATS NORMAL?!?! In my opinion it is an opinion of one's mind. I completely agree with what Candice M. said, God's not REAL so stop living by the opinions of one person and start maiking your own!
WOW..IM READING ALL THESE COMMENTS..AND PEOPLE HAVE LOTS OF OPINIONS ABOUT THIS SUBJECT..WELL HERE IS MY OPINION..GAYS SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO MARRY..AND ADOPT..THERE IS NO HARM IN THAT...WHAT PISSES ME OFF IS THE BIBLE..I DONT BELIEVE IN THE BIBLE..ITS A BOOK THAT HAS BEEN MADE UP FOR DECADES..PEOPLE PRAY TO SOMEONE THAT DOES NOT EXIST..IN MY OPINION RELIGIOUS PEOPLE ARE THE MOST JUDGMENTAL AND NARROW MINDED INDIVIDUALS I HAVE EVER MET..
if you guys thing that homosexualals shouldn't marry, you sholdn't care. its not you who has to get married
thats right!!
As a parent and partner I just want to know that my kids have the same opportunities and advantages as their peers. We each have a child that is biologically ours but in every way they are both our kids. Fact is this, if something happens to either of us the other is screwed in the eyes of the court. How can you tell me that my 12 year old can't have two parents who love and care for her in all ways and legally have rights to make choices for her care.
I BELIEVE EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO BE HAPPY.IF GETTING MARRIED TO SOMEONE OF THE SAME SEX MAKES THEM HAPPY.THEN SO BE IT.GOOD LUCK TO YOU.
Call it what you want but its all the same and everyone should have the same rights. Why should two people that truly love one another be denied the same man/woman couple. To all you non belivers....how would u feel if the person you love was in a hospital with his or her life hanging by a thread and you are denied because your aren't his spouse or immidiate family member? Think about that!
everyone has a right to marry whom they choose when they choose. Even same sex marriages!!
Let those who wish to marry do so.
That's right!
I disagree. I believe homosexuals should be allowed civil unions and I believe the law should change to allow civil unions to have the "perks" of marriage. Insurance, filing taxes jointly and adoption or surrogacy or having children in what ever way they choose to have them. I truly believe that marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman; its states such in the Bible and any other book of religion based on a belief in God.
well its a good thing we have a little something called SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE I DO NOT SEE YOU TRYING TO BAN PEOPLE WHO DONT BELIVE IN GOD FROM MARRIAGE
Definitely.

to the fool who cannot deal with the evolution of human union & sexuality: sterilize thyself.
I wish to marry my pet goat. I realize this is beastiality, however to deny me, is a violation of my civil rights, and my pursuit of happiness. My question is, would I be applicant A, or B?
b. i maen if u relly want to marry ur goat so be it do so who cares no one can dein u i mean come on ppl if u love someome or a pet then let them get marryed to that thing.
B.

You'd surely be viewed
as the equivalent to a ewe.
Why should adam and eve marry, if they don't feel like they belong together? Would you marry someone you don't like just because 'god' tells you to do so? You might say, 'I'll just say no...' But in other countries you don't have the right, they even kill their own children if they refuse. If adam loves steve and anna loves eve, and they both love them in return there is no harm. There is only harm when outsiders who do NOT understand this love speak unwell of it. Then the fighting starts, bickering about how 'god created everything, god created ADAM and EVE not adam and steve!'... If he did create everything, then he also created Adam and Steve, as well as Anna and Eve. Because 'god' loves all his children, why would he make them just to dispise them? The government shouldn't be a part of the relationship between two PERSONS. Because that's just what they are, two humanbeings that LOVE eachother, if you don't like it then just look away. It's quite a vicious circle, religion shouldn't be messing with government, government shouldn't be messing with love and love doesn't mess with anything... It shows gratitude and appreciation. The person who said love/marriage should be ONLY between man and woman is afraid, afraid of same-sex couples. Afraid they might be a better couple, afraid they might be better parents, afraid they might be better persons then they are. Screw the bible, it's just a book. It's okay to believe in it, but abusing it just to control the lifes of others?! Use it to guide YOUR OWN LIFE, live and let live. Have a drink while you're at it, x Biseksual PERSON Ps. Everyone who thinks LOVE is wrong, is wrong themselves in loving...
I ENJOYED YOUR STORY.WHAT YOU SAID IS SO TRUE.YOU HAVE WONDERFUL INSIGHT ON THIS SUBJECT.
I have no problem with Adam and Steve or Anna and Eve. It is not for me to judge however it states in the Bible that marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman. There is a passage that states to turn away from sin it is better to cut off your right arm than to sin against God. God loves you no matter what; he gives us all free will so that you can decide to follow him or not. He does not want you to be forced to follow him; he hopes you will choose to follow him and his words but by no means does he want to force you. It may not be your "choice" to be homosexual but it is your choice to act on it. Just as it is against Gods law to commit adultery or murder, so is acting on the desire to commit homosexual acts. It is the choice of the adulterer and the murderer to act on his desire rather than ignore the desire and pray about it to take the desire away. It is the same for a homosexual; the choice is yours. I dont understand why civil union is so bad as long as you receive the same benefits as a married couple. Civil unions are fine; but marriage is between man an woman. I have nothing against homosexuals at all I just believe the way I do just as you believe the way you do.
Separation of Church and State. If biblical theology should influence politics again then your asking for a repeat of the Dark Ages. The scripture your quoting is to not intended to be used for the argument its being used for. The verse doesn't even translate that way from Greek to English. I totally acknowledge you have your point of view and up hold your right to have it but please make a point based on fact not on something being spoon fed from a pulpit. Knowledge is the key to freedom from all repression remember that.
Marriage is a term used for a man and a woman. Explore Civil Unions.
Marriage was meant to be between a man and woman. God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.
Actually, god did create other men and there happens to be Steves. So if he didn't want Adam and Steve, then why did he create them too?
Telling people they cannot marry the person they love is wrong. You cannot be the "big brother" of other's lives. If what they do does not directly affect you and hurts no one (and it doesn't) then you have no right to have any say in it. Choose love. Not hate.
