Men a women were created for eachother. Our bodies are designed in a way that we are able to produce offspring, which requires a male and female. There is a reason two men and two women can't make babies, they aren't designed to. Marriage is the joining together of one man and one women. That's what I believe. And I know I'm going to probably get loads of comments or comments saying I am a homophobe. I have no problem with people that are gay, I realize it's not a personal choice and I have never had a problem or enmity towards them, but marriage is between a man and a woman.
I'm all for gay marriage. Straight people get to marry. Gay's should have the same rights. Just because they love someone of the same sex doesn't mean that they shouldn't be able to get married. I refuse to get married until everyone has that same right, and my fiance agrees with me.
I would like nothing more than gay people to be able to marry.. They should have the same rights as everyone else. It's really unfair. How does it hurt straight people if gays are allowed to marry anyway? It's not taking anything away from anyone. I'm not gay but it really bothers me that they are classed as a minority & are made to have different rules, like they're not good enough or something. I know some people really disagree with my thoughts in this but each to their own I say :)
Gay marriage is incompatible with Christianity (and for that matter, Islam & Judaism). If someone asks you why you oppose gay marriage, the only thing you really have to say to explain it is, 'I'm a Christian.'God doesn't condemn anyone for who he is; so if you're attracted to the same sex, that absolutely, unconditionally doesn't make you bad, evil or "un-Christian." On the other hand, let me note that I do consider hating, tormenting, or bullying people because of their sexual orientation to be distinctively "un-Christian" behavior. As Billy Graham has said, 'God will not judge a Christian guilty for his or her involuntary feelings." However, God has drawn a clear line in the sand when it comes to homosexual acts. If you're gay, you're not allowed to act on it. If that seems harsh or unfair to you, well, sorry, but you'll have to take it up with God. It's His rule.
Marriage and the family are the bedrock institutions of our society. The strength of a culture can be measured in accordance with the strength of its families. While homosexuals may desire to "marry" as a way to gain social acceptance and legal recognition, allowing them to do would hurt our society and its future. Think about it: If suddenly there are two real alternatives to choose from, and both appear equally acceptable in the eyes of the government, then the common institution of the family as we know God created it - growing from the love of one man and one women - would soon become one of the many options. This would wreak havoc on society because God's way is the best way. Going against His plans hurts not only those homosexuals attempting to marry, but the entire culture in which they live. This is not only a political issue, it is religious as well. God is above politics. (My answer continues in the comments)

Many people are against same-sex marriage because they wrongly believe people are trying to change their religious beliefs or make churches redefine marriage. We have two types of marriage in this country: Religious and civil. Religious marriages are NOT recognized by law and the definition of marriage for each of the various religions cannot be altered by our secular government. Only civil marriage is legally recognized, and that is the marriage law that needs to be changed. This would have no effect on religious dogma. If more people understood this, support for legalizing same-sex marriage would be far more than the current 47%-53% of Americans that polling indicates (opposition has dropped to around 36%).
I think marriage should change to fit todays society. Marriage is a sacred bond between two people who truly love each other.Marriage is marriage no matter what.It doesn't matter if a guy is marry to a guy or a woman is marry to a woman or a guy is marry to a woman.Love is love.Love has no boundaries.Love has no gender.There is nothing wrong with gay marriage.And if you still think marriage is for a man and a woman you are wrong,you are stuck in the past,you are living the dark age.This is the new age.so get use to it.Religion shouldn't tell us who to marry.If god was real he wouldn't care about what people do in there bed room.plus jesus didn't say anything about homosexuality.It's not in the ten commandments.Marriage is a civil right or a human right and this America and america is all about justice,equality,fairness.so when you think about gays not being able to marry is un-American.Did you know that in the 1950-1960 it was a sin for a black person to marry a white person or any other person who had a different skin color.Not giving civil rights to homosexuals is un-american.Not giving equal rights to homosexuals is un-american.Homophobia is todays racism think about it.
It's fine. The people who oppose it are slowly being outnumbered. Soon, people will realize banning gay marriage is like forcing certain morals on people. So long as religious institutions aren't forced to marry gays, it should be legal.
