Issue:

Many   people  have a problem with gay people wanting to get married n have the same  the rights as everyone else. why is it so bad for someone to love somone n want to be with them??  Understand why, is what people don't do. why do we have to be killed because of who we are? Why do we have to be pushed away n not understanded??? well now lets be heard!

Belief:

I want to know how MY marriage to someone would have anything to do with anyone but me n my partner. so why  can't we have the same rights as everyone else?? why can't people understand that it is not a chose to be gay! We are who we are n we need  to be hear!! I seem to not understand why people in the world are always trying to stop other people from being happy! this only means they aren't happy in their own lifes. But don't stop me from living my life happy n with my family!

I don't care about it, don't care that their together. the problem is that it's a sin, and i can't be happy with someone knowingly committing a sin, period. I WOULD DEFINATELY VOTE AGAINST IT, BUT WOULDN'T PROTEST ABOUT it's not that serious, their the ones committing the sin not me.
I'm so sick of this argument what is so wrong with gay people getting married I'm straight and it don't bother me. I keep hearing people use the line "gays will destroy the sanctity of marriage" but hello the sanctity of marriage has already been destroyed for a long time and not by gay people. Now a days people look for any little reason to get divorced, marriage takes work even the best of the best,but no one seems to be willing to do the work.
You know what i think...Homophopes are GAY!!...the irony behind it all, don't you think. Homosexuals should have all the same rights that Straight people have, just because they chose a different sexuality than us doesn't mean sh*t to me. They're homosapians, just like the rest of us, they aren't Deamons, they aren't aliens, they aren't even for surely going to hell(though they might, but thats just because of OTHER decisions they made, Hell i might go to hell). People...in my opinion...they need power/control but they don't need to put other HUMAN BEINGS into the spotlight because of ONE choice they make. I make LOTS of decisions, and well do other people bug me. NO They don't cause i'm not a 'satan', I didn't sell my 'soul to the devil'. It's like the rights for so many people, Everyone has to fight to get what they want. people of different natioalities and races, women, homosexuals, etc. sexists are people who have sh*t for brains, racists are people who have such a straight mind that they can't think sh*t other than 'they're different, lets make fun of them', and Homophobics are douchbags who need to learn to have a wider view on something. I have a strong opinion on this subject cause i have a few homosexual friends, and I being of an asian decent(I'm called many insulting names), and also not being taken as seriously because i'm a female, I HATE people who have sh*t for brains!! they can go screw off, and I say again HOMOPHOBES ARE GAY!! oh and sexists are sexist pigs who should go die, but don't eat 'em cause they'd taste horrid!! I support Gay Marrige, and believe that EVERYONE should be treated as equals, NO MATTER WHAT! As a straight beign who in fact has many gay friends, i believe that no matter what you believe in you should be designated to your own opinion, even if i think it's incorrect. and for those who think that we, who don't mind gay rights, are against the grain of life, i say to you, If it's against the grain, why would it happen in the first place if god was against it. I say LOVE WHO YOU WANT TO LOVE, DON'T LET OTHERS GET YOU DOWN BECAUSE THEY DON'T BELIVE, AND LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE!! AND THOSE WHO SAY DIFFERENT, GET A NEW POINT OF VEIW, BECAUSE THE WORLD IS CHANGING, EVEN IF YOU DON'T AGREE!!
If gays can't marry then no one should! I love it how over the years gays fought for all the rights of everyone else, we knew we needed to wait our turn and we did. In our lifetime we can remember when women, blacks. children and mayother things had limited or no rights at all. Just remeber all of us gays fought for you!
Two persons who love each other and wants to live in marriage, no one should deny them that. It is sad that many people can't see this.
I am also straight, I have some gay friends and i flirt with them and they flirt back cause we're buddies. We never hurt eachother and they don't hurt anyone so i don't understand why people can be so pig headed about how we choose to live our lives!! I am straight, but if i turn lesbian in the future..ok, then i want the same **** rights i was given when i was straight!! Just because i changed my sexual decisions doesn't mean i'm a freakin alien, or going to hell, or worship satan, it just means i have a different interest than other people. I think our government has other pressing issues to deal with than to decide who the hell we should marry. THese are SUPPOSED to be our lives and we're SUPPOSED to be the ones in charge of them. WEll, right now if feels as if everything we do we have to get permission from the government of something. I agree that marriage can be had by anyone, of race, color, religion, sexual interests and many more decisions that are their's to make!! I mean who the hell has the right to tell ME who to marry. Like i said, i'm straight, but if i ever turn gay, i want the same rights and i want the same everything that i had when i was straight. i am one that will stand up and scream to the world that gay marriage is ok. I don't care who hears me as long as my voice is heard!! If anyone wants to fight me on this topic you are welcome to. (I would sign this petition, but, i do not understand the buttons.) but you know what, this is my belief and this is my voice. I think it should be heard
Does anyone here believe what our country was founded on just wondering because we were founded on christian principals and i am prity sure that nowhere in the bible it says hey go out and get married to another man. anyone wish to comment please do tell.
im straight but have a few gay friends and i really dont understand why they have to be threatened by society. they arnt hurting people. theyre not doing any harm. please tell me why they are so bad
There is nothing wrong with gay marriage. I for one am straight but think that gays are awsome!

I hate it when people say that gay people shouldn't be allowed to marry! They're just like us! The government can't tell anyone who to love!

Hey everyone, my name is Ashley and I'm new to the site. Currently I am working on a school project on a social injustice that matters to me. After some research and seeing how many forums such as this one are out there and how many people are so negative towards homosexuality and gay marriages, I thought it important for me to get in on the subject and voice my opinion. I am a straight female and I personally think that it is no ones business who someone marries. Love it love when you get down to it and I believe it is very unfair to keep those who are the same sex couples but are still in love from having the same rights as the rest of us. I am also Christian, admittedly have not read the bible in a while, and while the Bible doesn't exactly condone homosexual couples if I remember correctly it does say you should forgive people and that in the end it is not our place to judge. The only one with that ultimate power is God himself. All those "Christians" gay bashing and talking so bad about others maybe you should think about how Christian you actually are, because it’s not your place to judge or to be mean to anyone else.

I always say that people fear what they don't know. I personally feel live and let live!

I personally dont have a problem with gay people getting married they are not hurting anyone. You should be allowed to get married to whoever you want.

YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO MARRY THE PERSON THAT MAKES YOUR HEART STOP WHEN THEY ENTER THE ROOM EVEN IF THEY ARE OF THE SAME GENDER. ITS NO ONES ELSE'S BUISNESS WHO SHOULD MARRY WHO ITS UP TO THOSE TWO PEOPLE. AND ITS STILL LOVE SO WHATS SO WRONG ABOUT IT?!?!?!?

Gay marriage is wrong. Both in nature and in religion.

Nature:how are we supposed to reproduce with same sex couples.

Religion: Read the Bible

There is something called adopting.
well in nature not everyone is gay, in the really old bibles it dosent say ANYTHING about same sex cuoples, its just the newer ones

i totally agree with you. the thing is that those who want to be that way should respect that this country was brought up on Christian morals. getting married is a privilege not a right. if is it nobody's business then stop trying to make everybody's business.

This country was founded on religious freedom.

I am a gay woman and I don't care if you call it marriage,civil union, or hokey pokey just give me equal rights.

yes im a gay man and i agree with u

GAY MARRIAGE ARE IN DISCUSSION. TO IT'S A PRIVATE MATTER AND CHOICE OF LIFE THAT DOES NOT NEED LEGALITY.
BUT, THERE ARE MANY RIGHTS THAT ARE BEING DENIED NOT ONLY GAYS,BUT ALSO TO STRAIGHTS WHO LIVE TOGETHER WITH OUT A LICENSE. HEALTH IS A MAJOR RIGHT THE DON'T HAVE. IF YOUR LIVE-IN PARTNER IS IN THE HOSPITAL, HE/HER IS OUT OF LUCK. ONE OF THE LEGAL RIGHTS THEY ARE DENIED. WHY?

HEY PEOPLE GUESS WHAT NO ONE SHOULD CARE IF YOUR GAY IF THEY DON'T LIKE IT TO BAD FOR THEM!! I'M NOT GAY BUT I STILL THINK IT'S OK FOR SOMEONE TO BE GAY. I MEAN WHY SHOULD IT BUG PEOPLE? IF THEY REALLY DON'T LIKE SOMEONE BEING GAY WHO CARES THEY'RE JUST TOO JUDGMENTAL IF YOU ASK ME! AND HEY ALL YOU GAY PEOPLE OUT THERE COME OUT!!! BE WHO YOU REALLY ARE!!!! YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO!!! NO ONE WILL CARE, WELL THEY SHOULDN'T BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE A RIGHT TO!!! I SAY GO GAY PRIDE!!! (woo-who) :D

My mom is a proud lesbian and has been with her life partner for 17 years! Who are we to tell her she doesn't have the same rights as anyone else? I thought this was a country that provided freedom of choice...I guess not. My mom deserves to be happy and marry the one she loves who is like my second mom. You can't help who you love and if she's happy....just let her be.

yes, she should be happy!! go your mom!!!!

My best friend I went to school with is gay,that doesn't change how I feel about her,she's a very smart women ,and her and her partner have every right as anyone else to be married ,I agree with taylor,my husband and I don't judge, and why should you ,when people start letting go of fear,and start learning fact,I'm sure life will be alot better.

I, personally, am straight. I fully support gay marrige. I am a firm believer in that what you do is your own business and if you're not hurting anyone then why should ANYONE have a problem with it. In the Constitution it says that all men(people)are created equal...so why on earth should anyone or any group of people be singled out because they are differnt...the beauty is in the flaw...differences should be celebrated, not discriminated against...by the way I am also completely against all forms of -isms (racism, sexism, and so on...)
One last thing...people whose only oppisitions to gay marrige is religion-related...I don't see what the problem is. If you don't believe that something is right, then don't do it. No one is going to try and force you to get married to any one else...there is absolutely NO REASON to be opposed to gay marrige...AT ALL! ! ! !Also the constitution promises the right of the pursuit of happiness, since when is love not considered part of happiness?

Isn't it ironic, and hypocritical, that the very people who are critical of gays, for supposedly being promiscuous, are now trying to prevent them from committing to one another? There seems to be no way to satisfy those bigots. Gay marriage should not be forced upon religious groups, but the government should grant civil marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples. They pay taxes, fight in the military, and are entitled to the same human rights as all the rest of us.

To the people who dont believe in gay rights!! Why do you care if they're not sleeping in your bed?? Its not really your business. Let them have their peace. There are so many other things that you should be protesting but you choose to stick on taking happiness why? You make me sick!!!
