The problem is gay marriage is now legal in some states yet people still complain that it's not in others.

Silly people. Want to be legally married in the place they live. Don't want to relocate to be married. Lazy SOBs
The nerve to expect to be treated like anyone else.

Black people weren't always treated equally and they had to deal with it for how long?? Yeah!

Anyways back to the topic of choice. You may or may not choose to be gay...but you DO choose to get gay married

Damn right! And they have right to do that!



[edit] After reading Phage's post he is right. It is just marriage. There's no qualifier.

It's not gay marriage, it's marriage.

Equal to marriage in every way including the name.

Enforcing the American concept that Separate but Equal is a lie.

If you don't want to marry someone of your own sex, don't.

No one is being forced to accept anything.

Did I say I thought it was ok? Go back and check...nope I didn't. I simply stated that it happened and for a very long time. They overcame their struggles and gay people will to. Sheesh! It's just marriage for F's sake!!! Like someone's life has no meaning unless they get married? Sometimes I pray to just make gay marriage legal everywhere just to stop all the whining. We have more important issues in the world than whether or not someone can get married but I guess ignorance is bliss...on both sides.

You can be angry that they trying to take marriage equality away


If your 'side' wins then nothing is denied LGBT, but if our 'side' wins then we denied you of your rights?

Just trying to understand.


Me too.

Like the world will end if they do? Civilization will collapse?

Back to the topic.

Is homosexuality natural? YES. (Tho some will argue that in some instance it is caused by man-made environment and such)
Is being homosexual a choice? NO. Not ever.

This issue seems to be one that we can soon all put behind us.

Perhaps the Christian Right can refocus on Jesus' commandments to feed the hungry, heal the sick, clothe the hungry, care for the children, etc.

Think of how many hot meals, and warm winter coats, and new toys and books could have been bought with all the money that has been wasted on a campaign to keep certain Americans as second-class citizens.

I look forward to a sudden outpouring of charity for the less fortunate, now that these folks can focus on what is right.

Great! Equality for All.

Oh wait, we have to deal with this stuff first.


While LGBT Americans are busy celebrating the spread of marriage equality, homophobic lawmakers have yet another trick up their sleeve. A new trend hitting legislatures across the country: sneaky laws that erode civil rights for LGBT citzens without ever actually mentioning LGBT people, or even same-sex marriage. www.advocate.com...

Phages response should have been adequate.
How would 'half the states' help all the gay people living in those other states? It wouldn't obviously. Hence your 'sacrifice'. How would that be a sacrifice to the greater good? I think that sacrifice should come from those denying them marriage needlessly. If there is good reason to legalize it in half the states, then there is good reason to legalize it in all of them. The vast majority of the opposition is merely theologically defensible. A separation of Church and State is supposed to render that ineffectual. Gay marriage bans are being ruled as unconstitutional because our society is starting to see that it is in fact a violation of our constitution.

Mississippi did it right by setting up those protections before legalizing gay marriage. Its a fair compromise. Gays can now get married and Christians don't have to participate. I don't see what's so wrong with that.

a reply to: Gryphon66 they always seem to forget that loving thy neighbour part too, which I thought was central to the whole christian religion. I don't remember it being on the condition your neighbour wasn't gay

No.

You want to be religious? Do it in your church and your personal life.

Religion is not an excuse to deny equal rights to citizens that don't follow your belief.

The Mark of Ham was used to justify slavery. It was wrong then and it's wrong now.
