I want to know everyone's opinion on same gender marriages. I ask that no one argue. I am honestly just curious to see what people think and feel about this very controversial subject that we have in our society today.

My opinion: It should be legally recognized, regardless of anyone's personal opinions on whether it is a good or a bad thing.

My opinion: Teh government need sto get out of mariage.  No more marriage rights no more peices of paper to delcare marriage.  The government has no right to say who can marry who...so they should just back off.
Marriage is between tow people and GOD.

Keep in mind that marriages are not necessarily religious.

I feel like everything always comes back to religion... I think the whole "seperation or church and state" should come into play but I don't know... I'm obviously for equality.

stuntdude:
True not all marriages are religious.  Personally I'm Christian, but you havea  point.  Also in my own beliefs I think marriage is between a man, woman, and GOD becuase that is what the Bible says.
But I do not like the government dictating what marraige is and I think that if the govenrment got out of it it wouldn't be a problem.

I really respect that, and I agree it would be just as good for the government to step out entirely as it would to recognize marriages equally. I guess I just think it should be all or none, as a function of equality.

My opinion is that same gender couples should be allowed to marry. It doesn't have to be hard, the world will just keep spinning.

I agree. In the Pledge of Alligance, we say "for liberty and justice for all!" That is something everyone should live by!

Man, I didn’t know anyone else thought like me. I TOTALLY agree with Medic. I do not believe in g.ay marriage or h.omosexuality in general, but due to the idea of separation of church and state I don’t think that the government should be able to stop g.ay unions. I think calling it m.arriage is a step too far, but letting g.ays “marry” seems to follow the idea of separation of church and state.

I think everyone should be recognized. I know that both sides can't agree due to their beliefs. 
 
May ga.y couples can have a sort of marriage union without the term "marriage" still have the same benefits as a married couple, and be recognized as a "married" couple.
 
I know that seems off. But I believe in compromise. This way religious people can hold onto marriage, or at least the word. Because I see their side as well. And ga.y couples can be equally recognized, just without the word "marriage". 
 
That's my opinion. Obviously, not the best.

I believe that, as long as you love the person, you should be able to marry them. End of story. It doesn't matter if it is a boy and a girl, or two boys, or two girls. We should all get the same rights.

It's 2014. We should be able to marry whomever we'd like.

See, gay marriage is more than just what's on the surface. Married couples have financial benefits, health care benefits, etc. So besides the ethical/moral argument, there are economic consequences as well.

Really, if you take away marriage, it makes us feel like we are lesser. It makes us feel like we don't DESERVE to have this huge thing in life. You can have the ceremony, the benefits, and so on and so forth, but can't really call it marriage. Do you know how that feels? That you're living with this person you love but you still can't really say husband and husband, or wife and wife, or genderneutral and genderneutral. You can't say you're married to them. And what about Atheists who get married? Should they be refused marriage because they don't believe in God since its so obviously between to people and God. There is nothing wrong with us!
 
NOTHING. Your stupid bigotry and hate with this is KILLING PEOPLE. TEENAGERS, ADULTS. You think I'm angry?! You have NO idea. I HAVE TO WALK WITH YOUR STUPID HATE EVERY SINGLE DAY OF MY LIFE. I HAVE TO CONSTANTLY TELL MYSELF I AM PERFECTLY FINE WITH LOVING MY GIRLFRIEND. THAT I AM NOT INFERIOR. I AM A HUMAN, AND YOU CAN TAKE YOUR DAM BIBLE AND YOUR DAM RELIGION AND SHOVE IT UP YOU AS.S.
 
GOD.

@TheGreatestTimelord. I'm sorry. I'm really really sorry. I didn't mean to hurt you in any way, and I feel really really terrible. Yes, I still don't believe in g.ay marriage, but I don't hate you and I don't think you're infer.ior. I have several g.ay friends and I love them! they are some of the most considerate, intelligent, amazing people I've ever met. In fact, the person I most respect is a les.bian girl at my church. She's stronger than me, spiritually speaking, and she's beautiful, affable, and very inspiring. Our youth group, we love her so much and we are always inspired and enlightened by her words. So yes, my beliefs may be vastly different from yours but I don't hate you at all and I'm sorry for making you feel inferi.or in any way.
You do raise up a great point though. Christians do seem big.oted, hypo.critical, and jud.gmen.tal. And I really really hope I don't come off that way. I care about individual people far more than I care about surface ideals and beliefs because I know people are so much more than what they believe. So I'm also apologizing for not considering the views and opinions of g.ays on this topic. I guess I really don't understnad how you feel, but I want to and I'm willing to reach out and truly understand. So I'll concede to drop this argument and be in consensus with @Caesar123's views. Again, thanks for telling me just how it is you feel about this debate. It can get reallly dehum.anizing sometimes and we don't even realize how insensitive and hurtful it becomes. I'm sincerely sorry and I really and truly hope you'll forgive me.
