What's your oppionion? I have many gay and lesbian friends but I am against gay marriage mainly because of them wanting to get married so they can bring kids into the picture. I don't feel that it is the right environment for a child to grow up.

It's as good as any other marriage, and people deserve to be happy. Why would it be anyone's business but theirs anyways? Live and let live.

Why don't you feel it's the right environment for children to grow up in?

Study after study after study (i.e. LOADS of research) has shown again and again that children living in same-sex parent households are as well if not more adjusted as their peers.

I'm all for gay marriage. Why should people be able to dictate who should and should not be able to get married? It's not affecting anyone else, and in my opinion, people should mind their own business.

Completely and unequivocally outlaw all gay marriages!
That is not what God intended.

I am against gay marriage because marriage should only be a man and a woman and the two shall become one flesh.

hawkeye, just because god said so then why does it have to go. This is why i am very skeptical on god, i though he/she wanted all of their children to live happily as long as they do not sin, as far as i know there is no sin saying " you must not marry someone of the same sex"

i believe people should do what they want, its their lives not yours and just because god said so doesnt mean it is a no-no. not everyone believes in god

It might not be what god intended, but not everyone believes in that. Goes back to the religion debate.



I for one think its your own business. I see nothing wrong with marrying who you are truly in love with. If two men or women married and stayed together forever, I think that was a much better marriage than most religion based ones that end in divorce in a few years.

God wants everyone to believe in Him but since there is sin in the world, people choose to deny God.  God created a man and a woman together for a purpose.

States grant marriage licenses, which is considered a legally binding contract. Religious marriages are not valid in the eyes of the country until approved by the state. There is absolutely no legal reason that gay marriage should not be allowed. It's all religious reasonings, which go back to separation of church and state.


What about this:
Jews in the old testament had concubines such as Abraham who impregnated two women, claimed God didn't want him to have Ishmael, and abandoned him

Also, Mary became pregnant around 13 or 14 and then was forced into a marriage. - thats considered pedophilia these days


Religions find pedophila and polygamy ok but not two consenting adults who happen to be the same gender?
