You make it sound like reproducing is a good thing? Just cause an idiot has the ability to knock up another idiot, doesn't mean they should have at
it. When gays marry, nobody but them must deal with the 'consequences'.
When heterosexuals breed out of control, we all must put up with the loud, disgusting offspring wherever we go.
What is so magnificent about one human suing another for half of their paycheck for the rest of their natural lives, just because they forgot a condom
As for the courts... Who do YOU believe should decide who can marry who, the CHURCH?? Gotta be kidding. The church needs to be painfully KICKED out of
our social issues.
Nobody should decide who can marry who, except for those getting married. In a case like this, since RELIGION has claimed all rights to the word
'marriage', let's get the state out of it and make sure that 'Marriage' is nothing but a religious ceremony. For anyone who wants their
relationship to be recognized by the state/insurance/etc... We should call it a 'Civil Union' or something, whether homo or hetero.
This way the church can KEEP their prejudiced Jesus-worshipping ceremonies to themselves. The state cannot regulate religious-types. Religious-types
cannot regulate the rest of us. It's a Win-Win.

I couldn't read all the pages in this thread, but this sums up how I feel exactly.
I often ask people, especially rabid anti gay people when they made the choice to like girls. And I'll ask everyone here the same question, when did
you sit down and decide to be attracted to and like the sex you do?
I can't recall ever sitting down and weighing the pros and cons of liking a girl over liking a guy. I was always just naturally attracted to women.
The same goes for gay people, no gay man ever sat down and said "ew boobies" I'll go with the penis instead. It was just something they naturally
Seeing 2 men holding hands isn't going to make your children "want to be gay" any more than seeing a guy and a girl holding hands makes them want
to be in a relationship. I'm pretty sure if your child turns out to be gay, its not because they watched too much Will & Grace.
I don't see how allowing gay people to marry would "destroy marriage" or the "idea" of marriage. In my opinion, just the prenuptial agreement did
that because it immediately presents the idea that this marriage won't last. Not to mention the divorce rate, dead beat parents, abusive spouses,
liars, cheaters and etc... All those things do far more damage to the "idea" of marriage than any homosexual ever could.
Also, there are plenty of heterosexual couples that cannot produce offspring, and plenty that can and for whatever reason don't. Are they technically
not married because of that fact?
I thought America was supposed to be the land of the free? The same people that cry about the government oppressing them, in turn suppress the rights
of gay people, and other people who live lifestylse they don't agree with.
People need to realize when they allow the rights of one group of people to be suppressed they open the door for all our rights to be suppressed.
