When white people voted for Obama it was because of what some people called "White Guilt."
Could this be a form of "Straight Guilt?"
I'm very concerned about this "Guilt" trend. Look what we got with Obama.

So much arguing about a complete non-issue. I see no reason why a paper from government is in any way needed for marriage. Separation of marriage and state is what we need, that would solve gay marriage and polygamy debates overnight.
The Ark of the Covenant was an embodiment of God's presence with the Israelites. The atonement cover (or "mercy seat") that covered the ark was God's throne (2 Sam 6:2) and God's presence was above it (Lev 16:2); it was also the place where God met Moses and gave him commands (Ex 25:22). If someone approached the ark, they would effectively be in God's presence - a sinner standing before a holy God who does not tolerate evil (Ps 5:4-6) - and would die as a result of their sins

You are a out of line saying that , how dare you even pretend to speak in the name of the Lord. Who in this world tells you that you are right and they are wrong. I bet you masturbate and have impure thoughts. I bet you have seen pornographic material, for all we know you are into some odd kinds of sexual behaviour. Now imagine we presumed all these things about you in the name of god. Honestly bro, ask yourself if god did exist and he loves us all then why are gay people on this earth, even in small tribes throughout the world that have had no exposure to the west or the bible, practice homosexuality. It is in your genetics , even if it isn't, it's a choice and you are not holier than thou.Do you think your Jesus would have turned his back on Gay people ? Really? Do you really? Think about it. Oh and as you say preacher....GOD BLESS in his name of course. Because I say so.

what about all the straight people out there who have been bashed for many years now for believing in "duality of the sexes"
they are not going around bashing gay people..they just think male and female is scientific fact of life and feel uncomfortable there is a small minority of agenda-based people elevating this cause?
surely we got more to worry about
imagine if all the gay and abortion lefties and righties put their minds to something REAL

You're right, but in the current scenario, there can be a "significant other" that is a lifelong partner, that has no say-so in the matter.
True. This is ridiculous. The significant other, especially a life-long partner, should get the say-so, married or not. Anything less is discrimination, and if they want to legislate the issue, it should be done to empower the non-married couple, of whatever persuasion.
Or, as a novel concept- all family members, significant others, and physicians get together and work it out.
I realise that there would be battles, feuds, etc. involved at times, but there already are in many cases, so there would be no difference, as far as I can see.

sorry but i despite people who judge other people based on their sexuality, you have no rights to judge anyone and just because "religion" says is wrong or just because you have a really close mind, you can't be against gay people or the rights that they deserve, they are people too and yes there's bad gay people but there's a lot of straight people who are bad too, a person you love and care about could be gay and you can't change the way you think about them just because they have another preference, it's really stupid and immature, gay people are no different than straight ones.
I'll point out the irony here. You hate people that hate gay people just because they hate gay people?
Well sir, I hate you for hating people who hate gay people.
