I think that Government needs to get out of the marriage business. If two people want to be recognized as a couple for legal purposes, it should be the same as forming a corporation. Go to the local Government, fill out some papers and that's it. When it comes to the marriage part, if your religion recognizes your type of relationship, you have the ceremony.
How bizarre. I know quite a few gay people, and have been to parties and other celebrations with gay people - and I have never seen anything like you have described. Maybe I just hang out with a classier group of gays than you do? I tend to hang out with classier people, period.
There are trashy people everywhere, no matter the sexual orientation, or race, or religion. The fact that gays are fighting for marriage equality has NOTHING to do with trashy gay people. Just like blacks fighting for equality has nothing to do with trashy black people. Or Christians fighting for religious freedom has anything to do with trashy Christians. There is nothing wrong with fighting for equality or freedom. Don't mix trashy people with a just cause.

Or do you just want an excuse to spout your anti-gay crap??

The irony is that if an heterosexual group dares to act the same or display the same amount of "eroticism' on the streets, would be either arrested for public indecency or "moralist" would riot on the streets yelling and screaming that our moral values are being stepped on and humanity have forgotten what being scrupulous mean.

I sure enjoy your comments, wow, ha-ha your the guy with the enormous sex drive as in the test, lol,
peeps are firing up your stars, good for you and whole heartedly I say I agree, what right do we have to anything nowadays, I was on a train in Just outside Prague, an old steam train on the way to Karls castle, there was this young couple on the bench in front of us not just at 2nd base, they were at total nookie stage, she was on top and looking over the bench at me and my love at the same time....we were a bit shaken but hell that's how it works nowadays, who are we to rant about how others must behave, somewhere we have to adapt, things in the world are changing faster then they can change the bible to accommodate the new views of life.

YOUR earlier post made it sound like all the gays you see are either taking their clothes off or practically having sex in public. I don't believe that's true. I'll bet you see plenty of gays in public that you don't even know they're gay, because they act like normal people.

I never implied that, I even said heterosexuals acting like that would be frowned upon and probably removed from the restaurant. Instead of finding fault with people who are bringing attention to indecent behavior in public (in this case a gay couple dining at a restaurant or gays at a wedding), maybe you should view it for what it is, obscene and disgusting behavior. Behavior like this in public is impressionable on young minds and young children, let alone disgusting to many adults.
Your personal support for gay marriage affects your unbiased judgement toward gays engaging in this type of behavior. As far as Mardi Gras is concerned, there are people who do disapprove of women showing their breast during that event. However, comparing an adult all night party that has established a long reputation of wild women and booze, can't be compared to public dining, or a wedding in which the invited guests are not aware of possible sexual displays of affection. There were children at this wedding that shouldn't have been subject to that kind of display of affection.
...and like I said about the parades, just because you say they attract "a certain type of people" that doesn't reflect the majority of gay people, it does however, send the wrong message on gay life styles to the public as a whole. This may be stereotyping, but for a group trying to sway public opinion toward same sex marriage, they're not winning over supporters with this type of display. Maybe those gays who are pushing for a change in marriage laws, should step in and put a stop to those type of parades which is hurting the gay cause.
