    OK thats it, I'm guessing more than half the people who are disagreeing with this are Religious? Well I'm religious too, and I think its great! Aww your probably thinking somehting like "nope its a sin, I do not want to help these people sin" well guess what. Your NOT helping them sin, you don't even know them! So just back off, you have a right to your own opinion, that doesn't mean you have a right control everyone

    This isnt about gays rights, but about judges. Their role is to apply the Constitution. If you dont like the law, change the law. Instead of the proper methods this is an activist judge declaring the law instead of applying.

  • YesItDoes

    no actually it only mean gay/lesbian can get married. trust me. no where in the law does it say you can commit incest or bestiality. It says anyone can marry who they want. Voters dont matter and the judge gets to decide what is best instead of the people. Check again, this opens up a lot. This law overturning says marraige is not just between man and woman. It doesnt go into any details about what is allowed/not allowed. So anything is allowed. It was about gay rights but it is about states regulating themselves. It is legal/illegal for 1st cousins to marry in some states. It is legal/illegal for parents to marry children in some states. This just threw all that out if it stands.

    Then why get 'married'? marriage is a religious sacrament... if your not religious then there's no need to want to get married... or you shouldn't have a problem with those binding marriage and religion in the same sentence. each to their own. you dipsh*t, 90% of people that get married AREN'T religious and don't get married within the church. Such f*cking BULLSHIIIIT

    [quote=peaceful opinion] I find it hard to believe anyones newborn child per se is "born" gay so that nullifys this as a "civil rights" thing. [quote=what peaceful opinion should have said] I find it hard to believe anyone's child is gay from birth: so this can't be a civil rights issue. So when did you choose to be straight? How old were you? Was it at birth or was it just before puberty when you started to "notice" the opposite sex? Have you hit puberty yet, or are you an adult who writes like that? What made you decide to only like the opposite sex? This is important to know: this could completely change everything we know about child and adolescent psychology! Sure, it would actually contradict most of what we already know but still, this could be big! Please tell!

    Should atheists be allowed to be married? or how about Muslims, Jews,or Buddhists? If they do and they are not Christians than your argument is essentially flawed Technically, Buddhists don't get married. :P But I agree. Its a bigotted closed mind law, made by closed-minded bible-blind people who have no sense of right.

    Whatever their reasoning, anyone against this is simply narrow minded. It will eventually become one of those things that, 50 years from now, kids will learn about the gay rights movement and wonder why it was such a big deal to all those that opposed it. Just as it is to all of us who look back at the narrow minded people that opposed freeing slaves, giving women the right to vote, dissolving segregation, etc etc. Either you can live in the past and try and fight progress. Or you can accept the future and allow everyone an equal opportunity. Besides, what threat does gay marriage pose towards those secure in their heterosexuality? Does it threaten your marriage? Does it change the love you have for your wife/husband? Does it in any way affect you directly? No. So why not allow others the chance to be with who they want in a manner that is acknowledged by our legal system? Condemning others for something you simply don't approve of, that in no way harms others, is just wrong. You don't agree? Fine. Don't marry someone of the same sex as yourself. No one is forcing you to, and no one is asking you to participate. This is a victory for common sense. Bigots be damned.

    CIVIL RIGHTS? blacks didn't have a choice for being blacks, latinos either. HOMOSEXUALITY is a choice. I guess DRUG dealers, smokers, drinkers, etc. should ask for special rights too, after all they choose to sell drugs, drink, smoke, etc. Let's call things for what they are, CIVIL RIGHTS is not Life Style Choice. You choose to be a FAG / DIKE why should you be given "EQUALITY" as blacks, etc? oh hell no. not this again. it is NOT a choice. I would do anything to be straight and gain more acceptance. If I could change i would. No one choose a life that is harder and more judged than any other lifestyler out there. I can't be straight and believe me i have tried. Hating myself for it made me attempt sucide 3 times until i releazed you can't change it. SO SCREW YOU! Comparing me to a drug dealer and other like me is the reason why so many , want to commit suicide

  • peaceful opinion

    I know that somebody already talked about this earlier, but are you suggesting that any couple that cannot "naturally" create a family through marriage should therefore not be allowed to get married? Does that mean you're against older couples getting married? Or people who have medical issues and are unable to have children? Or people who decide that they want to do one of the most amazing things and adopt children instead of having their own? The issue is not just the mere fact of being able to get married, the issue also encompasses the legal rights that accompany getting married. Not that it makes any difference, but I don't necessarily believe in marriage to begin with, as an institution or as a union. However, I still believe that EVERYONE should have the same rights, and that means everyone, not just the people that we decide we're okay with today. Ok to clarify no I don't mean it just like that. Its hard to make big points on a comment board thru the internet, but like u said marriage as union may be flawed but I say it is still meant as a means for a man and a woman to marry. For the argument as far as sterile couples, old ppl etc. That doesn't change their sex, it is still man and a woman. I feel the real issue is with the "civil union" that isn't appeasing enough for the gay community and they should attack that, but not marriage. One thing is to say hey your a black or mexican u can't do this because skin color is unchangeable but I find it hard to believe anyones newborn child per se is "born" gay so that nullifys this as a "civil rights" thing. The backlask on banning gay marriage is ill conceieved with this notion of ignorance amongst the supporters for marriage b/w a man and a woman. Like I said I am not against gays, I even have many gay friends but I am against the marriage because I stand for what I believe in just as they stand for their beliefs, so y am I the evil ignorant etc etc? Like a previous comment, the issue is goin to boil down to courts overstepping boundaries and that in itself is bad for society as a whole and the future of what world my childrens children will be living in.

    Civil unions, in the few states where they exist, are only respected IN THAT STATE. If that couple goes to any other state, like perhaps one where civil unions are not legal, those protections do not extend to that other state. How is that the same as the legal protections of being married? And once again, marriage may have originally been a religious act, but it was long ago incorporated into the legal system. Marriages aren't always "made" in a church. A lot of people don't even have ceremonies and just skip that and go right down to the courthouse to get married.

  • YEah

    It is all about religion. Marriage is a religious word and act that is made in a church. I am all for equality but religion is a club no matter which one you are part of. If you don't like the rules start your own. Marriage is for a man and woman that's what it means. Another word can be used to express the civil union of people of the same sex. Oh, civil union, that's right, already a word that means this is all a waste of time and money and means nothing.

    What makes you think that homosexuality is a choice? Or did you mean that living as a homosexual is a choice, and that people who are homosexual should fundamentally deny who they are their entire lives and attempt to live as heterosexuals? I don't think that anyone would CHOOSE to be treated the way that gay people are treated in our society. Why would they choose to be scorned for loving who they love? Why would they choose to be beaten, sometimes to death, for being who they are? Why would they choose to not have rights? I don't know anyone who would opt for a life that is so difficult.

    SimpleME: So...are you arguing that drug dealers, smokers, and drinkers shouldn't be allowed to marry, either? Is that what your argument is? Marriage predates modern religion. Also, marriages aren't always performed hand-in-hand with religious ceremonies but are instead regulated by the state. Not to mention that many, many ministers have willingly performed marriages for the LGBT community in states that already have legalized gay marriage, so why are you trying to take away their right to practice their religion as they see fit? I don't expect anyone to actually try to counter any of these points, but if someone actually has the intellectual curiosity to look this up from reliable sources, then I'll be happy.

Actually, although marriage may have originally been a religious sacrament, and some still see it as such, it was also long ago incorporated into laws. These laws often determine how belongings will be allotted in event of a death or who will have the decision-making capacity with regard to medical or legal goings-on. The main issue that I have with not legalizing gay marriage (besides the fact that gay marriage is a basic civil rights argument, and I'm for rights, regardless of who they're for) is that it denies couples who are just as devoted to each other as heterosexual couples, if not more committed, the rights to medical insurance and legal decisions that might have to be made on behalf of their partner.

    Wow, what a bunch of ignorant a$$holes some of you are! Why shouldn't gay marriage be allowed? Because of religion? Religion is completely irrelevant when it comes to deciding things like this. The laws set in the US are based on rational thought and reasoning, not by religious views. And I know people say that they shouldn't marry because they can't procreate. Well, that's pretty much saying that the people who are infertile and can't have children shouldn't be allowed to marry. It's a free country and people should be allowed to marry whoever they want to marry. Gay marriage doesn't affect anybody's life except the 2 gay people that are getting married and if it does affect your life, then there is something wrong with you because it definitely shouldn't.

There are so many children who do not have parents,nor a home.And on the other hand there are so many couples who desperately want children,but are unable to have.And most probably gay marriage will contribute in finding orphans a home.
