Recently i have began to question the motive behind banding gay marriages. I wanted a reason, an answer and an explanation as to why my aunt can not marry. The truth is there is no LEGAL reason why they cannot marry. Here's my thing... think about this, if you ask a person why gays can't marry they say because its not right and if you keep pushing the issue of why its not right it all goes back to religion."because the bible says its wrong" a friend of mine once said to me. In law and politics you are told to separate church from state, yet gays are immoral because the bible says that... in America we have freedom of religion. If we are going to base homosexual relationships on religion we must take ALL religions into consideration since our 1st amendment says freedom of religion. Buddha was not for or against gay marriages so the Buddhist religion should be in affect here.I think by refusing gays their right to marry is unconstitutional and goes against the 1st amendment because not all Americans are christian and that's what we are basing it off of.

I know what you mean, why should the community suffer when, in all reality, the majority of teenagers in out modern society are a part of the lgbt community.

My thoughts exactly. There isn't any reason or justification for discrimination against the LGBT community outside of the bible. It's just ignorance. "because the bible says its wrong" isn't a valid excuse for people to hate and persecute people who just want to live their lives.

Truthfully I country was founded on Christian beliefs. If God wanted females and females to be together or males males to be together there waould just be one gender. But as we see there are two genders and I am against gay marriage all the way. This is why our country is so messed up no body follows God they all just go there own way (not just gay people)

Our country might seperate church and government, but we should not seperate ourselves from what our country was originally founded upon: MORAL law and and NATURAL law. They are the roots of the Constitution and the stem that supports a great nation. If you must, pull out the roots and snap the stem. We'll see what happens.

It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

For one thing, not everyone is g.ay.   In there near future it is unlikely that everyone will become g.ay.  And as TeaCat pointed out, we're in a bit of an overpopulation crisis.  The world population decreasing is something we're TRYING to accomplish.

May I point out that the world is getting disturbingly overpopulated? I don't think the world is in any danger of dying out. And if it did, better humans die than animals. Humans are destroying the world.

Ok missplacedtexanblahblahblah, you want equal rights heres your equal rights, the equal rights amendment was first introduced in 1923 and again in 1972, its purpose is to give women and men equal rights under the constituion because women still do not have them.. and guess what its still is not an amendment... you would think in todays society passing an amendment giving women the rights we so deserve wouldn't be so hard but here we are almost 100years later, so yes you are WRONG on equal rights.

It has always been between a man and a woman because the bible made it that way!! People say its not natural, but almost EVERY species of animals have homosexual ones among them... and do not for get that we are mamals!! Just because we are more advanced does not mean that homosexuality is not natural. What is natural? Getting married having kids and getting divorced because thats what happens these days so in that case marriage is not worth the piece of paper it is written on!

You got enemies? Good, means you stood up for something you care about.

We are not asking for any more rights than you have! We are asking for the right to marry who we want, just like hetrosexuals have this right. Homosexuals have less rights than hertosexuals and have been frowned upon by today's ignorant bible loving jerks! If were only allowed to have a civil union, why don't you get one? Why are we forced to have something diffrent? Because we choose to follow our heart? and Most marriages are based on love. So most of your debate MisplacedTexan14 is WRONG!

They are not asking for more rights, they are asking to be able to marry the person of their choice and not be told that they cant because they are different

excuse me, I am one of those bible kissing nut jobs and its immature to use name calling in debate (just saying)

Also, they can live with eachother, do whatver they please to do, get a civil union, they just can't call it marriage. Marriage is and has always been one man and one woman.

And, my point in this whole argument, which you have yet to prove wrong, is that everyone has equal rights. Homosexuals are not asking for equal rights, they are asking for more rights. Prove me wrong on that and then we can go to the next argument. Okay?

The law does not give us the right to marry someone we love. Where in any law does it say that? Women are given the right to marry men and vice versa.

no, they ask for the right of marriage to the one they love and the other rights that go along with marriage. why should heterosexuals be able to share the joy of marriage with a loved one when homosexuals can't

My point is valid. My point is that homosexuals are NOT asking for equal rights, they are asking for more rights. I am not saying whether it is right or wrong (though in my opinion it is wrong, but that is my opinion) I am simply stating the fact that we all have the same rights, and homosexuals are asking for more rights

but your point is invalid. Just because you have the "right" doesn't mean it is right

I completely agree! There is nothing wrong with gay marriage, what's wrong is when people are discriminating against gays.
