Gay Marriage 4

I am all for gay marriage. Gays should know the joy of family members whining, "When are you going to get married? You're not getting any younger, you know." or the male of the relationship paying for alimony when the marriage breaks up. Why should the gays be left out of the fun? Besides it's time that Winnie the Pooh made Piglet a honest man.

we all have one life and we deserve to be happy. it doesn't affect anyone except those that can't open their minds and theirs hearts to the differences in people and even then all it does is cause you negative feelings. its not like the haters are being forced to attend or even have an invitation at that. i don't care what gays do behind closed doors or anyone for that matter. i have my own life to worry about.

I believe in the definition of marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

Marriage between a man and a woman and I do not favor any government-sanctioned union/arrangement that looks like traditional marriage.

However, I am not opposed to people entering into contracts for the purposes of inheritance, medical decisions, etc. All Americans, regardless of sexual orientation, have a right to make legal contracts and arrangements with each other and deserve the respect and dignity afforded to all citizens.

I'm all for gay rights and civil unions but marriage is different if you want children. Speaking as a person who lost his dad at a young age, a big piece of me was missing. I strongly feel it is ideal if kids have both a mother and father, it's even better if they love one another. Two mommies does not make a real daddy. Gays most likely have both, a female mother and male father so why is it not hypocritical if they don't want the same for their kids? Life is hard enough to live without living it on an unequal playing field. The world is becoming more dysfunctional and ass backwards every minute. What's next group marriage? Don't be shocked if that's next, with that man on cable with 4 wives wanting people to accept it. Is he in jail yet? I heard the state he lived in was pressing charges. I'd like to see heterosexual people pass a course and get a permit before just hopping into marriage and parenting like it's a handshake.

I'm not for it or against it and either way don't really care. However, I do care that a lot people I have spoken with (liberals mainly) seem to think it's the most important issue out there.

It seems that we should define marriage before the issue can be legitimately discussed. Marriage, in my experience in talking with many Christians, is between and only between a man and a woman. If it is logically derived from the bible and if Christianity is entirely based on the works of the Bible, then there is no question if Marriage between same sex should be legal. The problem is "What is the truth?" There are many ways of interpreting the Bible and people can come to logical conclusions about homosexuality being perfectly legitimized by the Bible.

Bigotry is defined as casting people into a lower form of what they actually are which is a human being. Americans have done this to blacks, hispanics, jews, themselves regarding beliefs, and to what's at the heart of this issue: gays. America took small steps to overcome bigotry against blacks by using the "separate but equal" method, which is a small step toward morality. Why can't we do the same for gays?

This is the type of bigotry the Catholics used that drove the protestants away to America. The protestants wanted freedom from lack of inclusion, so maybe separation is a good start before we can fully include gays in America. This can be accomplished through domestic partnership.

Barack Obama and Abraham Lincoln are for this attitude of small steps for the ultimate goal.

The ultimate goal of America is the inclusion of all people within its social structure.

Once the government gets back on track with regard to its fiscal policies, and starts treating the money they take from us with more competence...then more discussion can be had here.

Gay Marriage 1

If someone can convince me that a child does not desire and does not need both (two great full time parents of both genders male & female ) in the home that are mentally stable, loving, good parents (mother and father) equally, then I would say live and let live. Even God does not force himself on people. I heard the argument that not all married people are planning on having kids but most do. Having children is the norm for most married people.

Life is hard enough. You can survive without both a good Father and good mother but it is not the best head-start in life.

I am also not in favor of child abandonment, poor teen parents or single parents deliberately having kids.

I know Gay marriage and poor teen single parents are unavoidable but so are car crashes and other tragedies. There have been case studies that report our Prisons are filled with men and women from single parent homes.

What does that tell us? I think if you are honest you know the answer.

It was reported on a New show that some schools in the inner city have done away with Mother's Day and Father's Day so as not to offend the kids from single parent homes. If this is going to be the norm with Father or Mother abandonment of their children (unless by death, not desertion) it really indicates a huge break-down of society.

There are certain people that resent hearing (and even considering) what is in the best interest of the children. Selfish & self-centered is the name for it.

If gays and lesbians want to be married I'd say more power too them. Obviously, the striaight married couples have set the perfect example of what marriage is supposed to be like. The current rates of divorce are, 41 percent of first marriages, 60 percent of second marriages, and if your sufficiently insane enough to do this, 73 percent of third marriages.

God didnt want us fighting against each other he wants us to be close I dont think god is judging on who we are but by what we do in life and how we treat the people around us. I think its werid how relgion was suppost to bring people togther but its one of the biggest fights our world deals with because we all review and believe in it a different way.

Gay marrage doesnt effect me in any way so I dont see any problem with two people that love and happy with each other to be together in marrage.

Gays and lesbians dont judge us on who we date so why are we judging them?

I dont get why this is even a politcal issue I think the government should just let them get married and think about other things our country is going threw we have way bigger issue here then gay marrage. I really dont see what the big deal is.

So all of you people who are totally against this are saying to me that if your own child came to you and told you "Mom, Dad......I'm gay/lesbian!!!" you would turn away from her/him? That is ridiculous!!!!! Gays and Lesbians arent trying to get special treatments as some of you might say....We just want to be able to celebrate our love the same way everyone else does. I mean all we want is for others to see our union the same as you see you and your spouse. And to those of you who think that gays/lesbians shouldn't have kids are also wrong. I dont see same sex couples getting divorced all the time and breaking apart their families!!!!! We work hard on creating our families. We take time, thinking, support, emotions, money, but most importantly love and trust that we have for each other into making things happen. I know plenty of young girls who get knocked up accidentally of by being stupid. We dont just pick a person, get together like whatever, like its something that can be done and undone......Ugh, it sucks that so many people are so bothered by this that they are willing to take away happiness of others away from them. So what WOULD you say to your own kid, IF they told you they were gay/lesbian? Would you abandon them...leave them....throw them out...make them feel really bad...yell at them....make them wish they never told you? And aren't you the straight parents who are allowed to have kids because you'll give them what they deserve? Lie...One big convenient lie!!! I'm just glad that my mother is the kind of person who loves and always will love me unconditionally, and for that i am thankful to her!!!!I'm also thankful to her for loving my other half, treating her like she is her daughter, and accepting our love!!!!! Thank you mom, i'll always love you!!!!

  It's so sad the lot of you using Christ and your pwn personal insecure judgeto demoralize and insult homosexuals. As advanced a country we are, we have a LONG way to go as far as progressive thinking is concerned. You don't have to agree with the practice but for those individuals DENYING the RIGHTS of a group of people based on their own personally drawn conclusions is wrong.

I do hope one day gay marriage will be granted everywhere. As soon as religion gets its ass out of civil liberties.

Gay Marriage 5

I am a lesbian. Me, I grew up in a very conservative Christian home, I went to school to be a pastor. But I always knew something wasn't "normal" about me. Let me try and explain… bare with me…it's like, all my life people have told me I should like the color blue, and I accepted that... because didn't know anything else, but when I saw purple, I knew without a doubt it was really my favorite color, I just didn’t know it existed yet. That’s how realizing I was gay came about for me, I was told I was a girl, and I would marry a boy someday, and I accepted that. But after years of not really knowing why I didn’t care to have boyfriends, I realized I didn’t really like them, I just did cause everyone else I knew did. It hit me, I was Gay, and then it was like i saw everything clearly... I realized why I loved the little mermaid so much, and that I had a crush on my best friend in kindergarten and when I was making up excuses to kiss my best friend in high school, it wasn’t just to be funny or get attention, it was because I was confused about my sexuality.

I am Christian, through and through. I know the Bible probably better then the back of my hand, I refuse to argue with people who throw verses and scripture in my face for that reason. I know it. and I know that no one that has not been in my shoes can understand what if feels like to be gay.

That being said. I am in a very committed loving relationship with a women. She will be my wife, someday. I know without a doubt she was made for me. I want to marry her. I wish others would open up their hearts and realize that what the gay community is asking for isn’t acceptance, or anyone else’s approval on the subject of homosexuality, but just the same rights as anyone else has who is in love. We are going to be here no matter if we have rights are not, that wont change.

If you want to talk about the sanctity of marriage, lets talk about the people who abuse it, those who are serially getting married and divorced. The ones who mistreat their wives/husbands and children physically and emotionally.

Let’s talk about the celebrities that our society worships and how they jump from bed to bed with a new marriage, affair and divorce every week.

Shouldn't the issue of the sanctity of marriage be about those people? Because if that’s what you are worried about, I agree.

I know that I will be an amazing wife and mother, and so will my partner, we cant wait to have kids and I am so glad I have the option of doing that. We will raise them with an open mind, the Bible in hand and with love. I know of a lot of other households that couldn't say the same.

That’s just my 2 cents. You can hate me, and judge me, you can condemn me, but I won't do that to you, because I believe that the righteous will get to Heaven, and that the Bible says to let God himself do the Judging.

UPDATE 3: Read the comments to me below from Whatupman... real class!


UPDATE 2: Look, I'm sorry if you disagree with me but, is this not the opinion network and do I not have the right to my opinion? UPDATE: Bird, I appreciate your comment but my belief is more than "aesthetics" or a study of art. It is my faith and many governments were founded based on simple and complicated truths surrounding peoples faith. We do what we do because we believe something is right or wrong and laws are created based on those beliefs. True, I do not see all that gays do but in my line of work I have seen more than I would ever want to share.

ORIGINAL COMMENT: With hesitation I'm commenting on this topic again. People say take God out of the picture; well I can't because he is God and he entered the picture himself. People say this is not a religious issue, well yes it is, and its discussed in the Word of God. People say we are not a theocracy, true but we are a democracy and as long as we are we all have the right to voice our opinions. I believe gay people have rights but not the same as married men and women (when it comes to marriage). I believe it is wrong and is a perversion and I would not want to offer marriage rights to other forms of perversion either. I also do not believe gays are born gay.

Gays and lesbian constitutional right are the same as anyone elses. They are not discriminated against. every gay can marry any woman, and any lesbian can marry any man. Nothing wrong here. But they don't want equal right, they want special rights, and that is a Pandora box we should carefully think whether we should open or not. Marriage is an institution, the basic cell of society, and has always been between a man and a woman. Children have always had moms and dads. They never had two moms, or two dads. Growing up in a same sex environment, with traumatize children who will question the reasons other children have moms and dads and they don't have them. They will feel segregated when they cannot send mom a nice Mother's Day card, or a Father's Day card. They will see children playing with their mothers and they will not be able to do so. They will see other children playing with their father and will not be able to do so. We will raise intellectually  and emotionally handicapped children which will have serious difficulties adjusting to a heterosexual world. Gays and lesbians don't care about the future of America, they only care about themselves and their agenda. Will the 10% wicked minority win the battle against 90% of normal majority? Only in America. If we sit on our hands.

UPDATED DUE TO A COMMENT.07-11-2008 Your right God does love all but hates sin; Sin is how the bible explains gay persuasions! Yes you are right about marriage being a man’s ruling, it was first bought up around Roman times! But the very word marriage describes a Male and Female; nowhere does it include male-to-male or Female-to-Female. Your views about Christianity are obviously bias and you are in agreement with "marriage." We are all entitled to our own opinion and whether you agree or not you will not persuade me to change my mind based on what you say; because most atheists use this terminology to describe why the Bible is incorrect! You either believe the Bible is true and of God or you don't. But what is stated in Gods word regarding the act of Homosexuality and Lesbianism is very vivid and clear! You cannot believe in a faith by only taking on-board what you think is right.

 

Firstly under Gods law it is not right or is it allowed. There are many biblical references and if you want them I suggest you look them up or ask! As for GAY marriage; Marriage is symbolically for a Male and Female, not a male and male or Female and Female. If you ask anyone gay person with their head on their shoulders, you will find that they want to be life partners with all the government legislations as a married couple has.(Male & Female.) They recognize marriage is for the opposite sex! Personally I don't care what they do as they are accountable to God alone! If I'm called to witness for God then I will very quickly share my understanding of Gods word. They are no worse than someone who chooses to not be a Christian! Do I hate Gays?  NO! Do I agree with Gay marriage?   NO. Remember I follow Gods word and this opinion is based off of what I believe as a Christian!

I don't believe this to be a true issue. I believe strongly in human rights. Although being lucky myself to not be affected directly by this law, I still support gay marriage. Many argue that people aren't born gay, but choose to be gay. I have strong doubt about that since from my personal experience, I never feel strongly towards either gender. I'm lucky enough to find a companion whom I want to spend the rest of my life with, and it happened to be a male, so lucky me. Ok, let's say even if that statement was true, and let's look at this situation here. One of my in-laws was abused by men since she was a child, can you blame her to choose to be lesbian? Just because she refuses to spend her life with a man, doesn't mean her right to be legally married should be taken away from her. Also, I know some gay people, their feelings for their partners are no difference from the feelings of straight couples. I don't see their acts to be any more disgusting than the straight couples unless, your mind choose to think of it that way. Gay couples have crazy life style? So are many straight couples. And it's God's words that gay is offensive to the nature of mankind? Well then, that's why I chose not to be Christian. I do not believe in a God, or the book rumored to be a recording of his messages, who is discriminating against those who were born different from his ideal, and claim to love us all.

OK, gays and lesbians can be "joined" or have their own ceremonies, why do they have to be "Married"? Marriage has always been between man and woman, why are the gays/lesbians pushing the limit? Why can't they have their own little wedding and be satisfied - that way they would not be making people mad.

Only God's Own Party can protect our precious bodily fluids from the Gay Agender!

UPDATE:

I believe the right to decide who can marry should rest with each religious group, but the right to equal treatment under law for 'domestic partners' should not be controlled by any cult, "Christian" or otherwise.

UPDATE TOO:

For better or worse we have (to some extent) the privilege of living in a constitutional democratic republic. This means - in theory - that  the majority only rules when their desires are not overruled by the constitution. So far - except in Massachusetts - majority hatred for homosexuals has trumped the constitutional requirement for equal rights for all citizens. How much longer the majority will be allowed to trample on the rights of the minority in this case remains to be seen.

UPDATE THREESOME:

The way I see it, marrige has been and always will be one of the main ceremonys that take place in or within relation to a church.  As we all know, most churches including the Catholic church are against the idea of same sex marriages, therefore no way is it possible for Ellen and Rosie O'donnell to get married in/be recognized by this church.  Yet when people ask such questions as "human rights allow all humans to have the right to get married".  Sure this notion is true in theory, but we all know about the seperation of church and state.  Since marriage is a church sacrament/ceremony then the technical term "marriage" is not to be used, because the church (which isn't the state) says that marriage (which is a church ceremony) is not allowed.  So why did this topic earn 3 Stars?  Because I do feel like all humans have the right to be UNITED, in unity.  Therefore we can civilly agree that the unity between same sex couples, can be civily united as a civil union.  Going back to my point that all humans have the right to be recognized by the government as a couple, rather then a married couple since marriage is a church ceremony.  UNLESS!!!! Unless your specific church allows same sex couple to be married, for example some Protestant churches.  Marriage takes place in a church, by a church figure, with church rituals, when such a ceremony doesn't take place in a church it is known as a civil union.  Since the church is allowed to have their own ideas and marriage is a church "thing" the state must not have the right to infringe upon these church rights.  Therefore if Elmo and Snuffalufagus want to get married then they can't, they can get civilly united by a government official, assuming these laws are in tact in certain places.  So no marriage cause thats church stuff, and no one wants to unite the church and state, we use the term civil union to show that all humans have the right to unite.

This is a state issue and should remain that way. The majority of people in Massachusetts believed it should be legalized, so it was voted on and it was. The majority of people in Utah did not believe it should be legalized, so it was voted down in that state. Those that don't want the federal government "in their bedroom" should stop trying to bring the federal government into it to begin with. There is no federal stance one way or the other and it should remain that way. What is deemed equal treatment under the law is decided on by the people. No, it should not be controlled by any cult, such as extremist liberals.

A NEW UPDATE: I see we have new arguments about how people are "born" with certain proclivities and therefore we should accommodate them, particularly, some people are born homosexual so we should allow them to marry. That argument is defective for several reasons.

I suppose the first is the genetic fallacy. Fred is born with homosexual proclivities, therefore Fred must become a homosexual. Does that sound logical?

Another obvious fallacy is affirming the consequent. If Fred is a homosexual, he must have been born with that proclivity. Fred was born with the proclivity to be a homosexual, therefore he is a homosexual. Hmmm!

Good common sense with life experience is another BS detector that lots of us have or should have.

To show how stupid are these allegations that we must allow such "marriage," substitute, with proper syntax, of course any other deviant course of human conduct from serial murder to alcoholism to incest to drug use and on and on into the logical argument to allow homosexual marriage. Of course you must plug in the different endings to carry out the logical tests.

Truth of the matter lies in the fact that all humans are born with certain proclivities. Except for certain psychoses, science does not recognize an irresistable impulse. In other words, fellow citizens, behavorism determines almost all conduct.

In conclusion society does not have to condone deviance by approval such as allowing a deviant "marriage." Behavior can overcome such "impulses."

LATEST UPDATE: How does a society survive if we have no families or reproduction? This is really disgusting that this perversion has floated to the top. Marriage and the family, in history, has been and will continue to be the bedrock of any healthy society. If a society advances perversion, that society is well advanced towards decline and fall. Rome in the West is a good example of how perversity helped the ultimate collapse. UPDATE: Disastrous or not, heterosexuals have kept the race going for these last several millennia. Marriage is the vehicle that has preserved and perpetuated the human race. Homosexuality has done nothing to further the advance of mankind.

UPDATE:The Iron Verdict of History shows that societies that are in an advanced state of decline are the ones most concerned with same sex marriage. HMMM! Soon Mohammed and Fatima, Juan and Pilar, and others of that ilk will be running the world. I wonder how they will view this issue.

Gay Marriage 4

This is a tough one for me...I know that marriage is between a man and a woman, however I know some gay couples who have been together longer than most married couples and have as much at stake.  They own homes, cars, businesses together and have as much invested financially and mentally as most married couples.  There does need to be some legal protection for a partner should something happen to one of them.  Im still debating in my mind on whether or not they should have kids.  But as our society becomes more accepting I don't know.  I see some of these parents out there and wonder anyways...

I'm honestly not sure how many stars I should give this. In my opinion, gay marriage shouldn't be an issue, because the concept itself is ludicrous. Marriage is a union between a man and a woman. That's what it is, period. But it does seem to be an issue, and a hotly debated one at that. So read my words, and be angered by them if you like. But you can more or less ignore the star rating, because I don't really know how to rate it.

Gay Marriage 1

I think its wrong. Im a christian and im not judgeing them by the way they want to live. If they want to live that way then let them. It just aggervates me when they say there christians and try to justify it being ok to be that way. But being gay is one thing getting married is another There spitting in Gods face when they take it that far.

With the exception of a few areas, Massachusetts, California, Arizona and maybe New York and Vermont, Americans have shown that they strongly oppose Gay marriage. Alot of states by more than 70% against and I agree.

"The historical, cultural purpose of marriage is to produce a nuclear family unit for the express purpose of providing genealogically traceable families and raising children. There are many other aspects going with it, but that's key. Just because the divorce rate is climbing does not mean the institution is worthless, and that we can allow anybody into it. All that does is weaken it even further. It's like saying, "All right, the glass is already broken. Let's break it the rest of the way so it's not a threat to anybody." It's juvenile thinking" ---Rush Limbaugh---

Just let 'em **** for christ sake. I feel that we should judge everyone for there lifestyle choices. I drink and smoke and I know it would piss me off if some tried to ban that. Banning gay marrage is unconsitutional,( keep that in mind all you true to the country republicans your screwing with most important American document to ever be written.)

  although the idea of this listing is to rate the issues' political importance to our nation, it seems to have instead become a place to voice your opinion on the matter itself.  So, I'll join in. 

 "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be decieved: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolators nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.  And that is what some of you were.  But you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus CHrist and by the spirit of our God." 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (NIV)

okay, so here goes.  I do believe that homosexuality is a sin.  It says so in the verse i just cited. I also believe, however, a sin is a sin. each no worse than the next.  while different sins may have different effects on ourselves and those around us, each sin is capable to be forgiven if the sinner repents.  I know that sounds like i put myself in a postition to judge, but believe me, i cannot, for i am a sinner.  while homosexuality is a sin that i cannot support, i too am guilty of my own sins, which i couldn't explect others to support. 

Does this mean i'm homophobic? no.  I had a homosexul professor in college and he was one of my favorites. he taught me more than i could begin to list here. Do i believe homosexuality is a cause for hatred? no. absolutely not. but what truly is? Homosexuals need love and forgiveness just as much, no more, no less that the rest of us.  BUT: i do not think they can have the same rights as a God-honoring marriage, the way that he inteded.  Now, how important is this to our nation? well, if we're going to run our country in Godly manner, it could be quite important. but there are many other things that need to happen before this issue needs much attention.

I do agree that there are more pressing issues to be disgussing. I've thought that all along though. If we had been less religiously influenced back in the day perhaps we could have pulled our finger out a bit earlier, and this topic would just be called marriage...

The sad thing is... although I am naturally and morally opposed to this motion, as a Christian, I can't say anything out against it or I am a 'homophobe'. It is irritating when 'minorities' play the 'race' (I am just generalising, as this has nothing to do with race, of course) card, as you are powerless to counter it.

We are meant to have freedom of speech, but sadly this is not the case in modern society. It is more like 'you have freedom of speech as long as you are a liberal'. Thank God for sites like RateItAll where I can say what I think.... :)
