    I see absolutely no good reason why gay people should not be allowed to marry.

    I haven't been following it closely, but it seems like most of the extreme opposition has to do with religion.

    I think what is "wrong" with the gay marriage idea for the opposition is that marriage practices in the US are religion-based...and that basis observes male-female unions and not same-sex ones. There is probably more to it than that, though, but I think that's the big one.

    If singles can raise kids, gay couples should be able to do fine.

    Well there are a lot of kids that will probably get a better upbringing with parents that will give a toss what they do all-day, but that's a kinda off topic route for conversion.
    Still think the kid will be wondering why he has no mother.

    Well unless one of them is a transvestite.

    You're right, the opposition is almost entirely from a religious viewpoint.

    I am a religious person and do believe that marriage is an institution created by God for a man and a woman.

    HOWEVER -
    man's laws cannot change what God considers marriage to be. Even if it's legal everywhere, that makes no difference to God. After all, there are TONS of other things that are perfectly legal that go against God's standards. So it makes no difference to me if it's legal or not, it's not like I'm going to be forced to marry someone of the same sex, so why should I force my views on others? I will do my best to live according to God's will and I will help others to do the same if that is their desire. Man's laws are irrelevant.

    But the thing is, we don't really know what God considers marriage to be (assuming he exists). Maybe he actually does want gays to be able to get married, and the major religions all got it wrong?

    You mean the same Bible that condones slavery and demands the death penalty for working on the Sabbath?

    ok, we prolly shouldnt get oof topic in an epic bible/god debate.

    I dont really care if gays marry or not. I dont see any reason they shouldnt, then again i dont see any real reason why they would want to... other then sentimental reasons i guess? idk. i can see why they would want it, and why they wouldnt. their choice. my girlfriends bio dad is gay, and married. i dont have a problem with it.

    Gay people can do whatever they prefer. I know gays from my school, and they don't bother me. I would never agree to 'be' gay, but if my 'gay' friend treats me like a 'friend' instead of something sexual, I have no problem with them. So let them marry if they want to.

    Considering how many gay friends I have I must say that I am SUPER supportive of gay rights. I mean come on, my best friend in Middle School is gay. We hit puberty at the same time and when I checked out chicks he checked out dudes. He never realized that it was different from everybody else. It just seemed normal to him. Proves that it's not a choice. More importantly, proves that gays are every bit as human as the rest of us and they deserve to have all the same rights.
