Why are people so against gay marriage? It's not effecting their life.

Report as

Because people are stupid and ignorant, unfortunately. I don't see why people should be against it either...
People should be allowed to love who they want to love.

It doesn't affect mine but it sure affects people who are gay. They want the same right to marry as I do.

Because too many people are too religious to realize go himself wouldn't hate some one for being different , I'm sure that's his message , if religious people think gays can't be married because it's against bible , then why would god in the first place allow people to be gay
>no god
>gay marriage
Pick one

I've read the bible several times. I find the lessons that Christ gives are what feels right in the heart for myself to live by. Christ talks a lot about love being the utmost important thing as God is love. He talks about how only God can judge and we shall not judge each other. He says we should be true to ourselves and what is right in our hearts, and practice forgiveness of ourselves and of others. If someone in their heart of hearts is gay, it would dishonorable and unrighteous by God to pretend not to be. I believe in the teachings of Christ but am very aware that the bible was written by MAN to fit a society that existed 2,000 years ago. We are not that society yet we are all still children of the Lord. As Christians we should still follow Christ, and as humans we need to adapt to what is true in society today. To anyone who has trouble accepting this I highly recommend practicing the Serenity prayer:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Why does it make a difference to you what other people do? If you are uncomfortable with it, this is YOUR problem not theirs. It's not sick it's just people being true to themselves. What is so sick about that?

Who are you to judge? The only one who can judge is God himself. Unless any of you sick religion-crazed psychos are being bothered by gay people, you should open your mind alittle and not rely your life solely on the bible.

Since gay behavior predates the bible, I'm pretty sure god made them that way. If you don't like gay marriage, don't get one but quit setting yourselves up in judgement.

How am I suppose to know lol I said I agree to gay marriage lol :)
Report as
LOL...I'm just saying. Mostly people who disagree have strong religious backgrounds. However, they're the first ones to judge. I was raised Christian and was told not to judge. To let people do what they do and pray for them. Not condemn them. I have gay friends. Gay friends who have been in relationships longer than straight friends. To think that if their partner were to get hurt or die that they have no rights. They wouldn't even be able to enter the hospital room because they aren't family, sickens me.
Report as
Same with me even though I'm only 13 I still go to church every sunday and wednesday my family is a very religious family !! My gay friend has been in a gay relationship longer than any straight person I know!! I don't see why people don't just let them be...

Because it's against the bible and they want to try and stop the gays because they think its not in God's will. They think they are helping out with little protests and other activities when really they should just focus on how to make their lives better instead of making others worse.

It doesnt affect anyone but yourself and all those who choose this type of life. Its In The HOLY BIBLE that its a sin to be with the same gender. And before anyone tries to say anything to me in regards to my opinion once again , I suggest you read the HOLY BIBLE first.

Sorry...this is just a touchy subject for me. Another thing: There's supposed to be a separation of church and state. So how is it these religious groups are the ones convincing the states not to allow gay marriage?

Report as
Don't be sorry. I 100% agree with you. As a Christian, I'm ashamed we have such a bad rep because of church leaders pick and choosing their bible verses to dictate how "everyone" should be. Truth is everyone is different and Christianity is supposed to be about love, faith, truth, forgiveness and acceptance. Marriage is supposed to be about love, not what some PERSON wrote thousands of years ago put down as his 'own interpretation' of what God wants. (Deuteronomy)
Report as
And for the record I do believe the separation between church and state should be stronger. I am a Christian because it's what my heart of hearts believes, but religion should serve only as a guideline for how people choose to live their own lives. I am also passionate about people having a choice to believe what they feel in their heart is right when it comes to God, and the laws of a country should not embrace those of any religion. The laws should be there to protect and serve all their people regardless of gender, sexuality, or creed.

Here's my thing. I think gay marriage is okay. I come from a very religious background. I was told not too judge. Only God can judge. Therefore, all these Christians judging gay people on getting married is ridiculous and contradictory. By judging what gay people do is a sin. Let them get married. If it's a sin let God decide when the time is right. In the meantime, sit down, shut up, it doesn't affect you, it's not contagious so let them live their life. Besides it's the straight people who keep making gay babies in the first place.

Because too many people hate and fear what they don't understand. And some only seem to read and live by certain parts of the bible and not the whole. They seem to miss the part that says do not judge.

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you (Matthew 7:12).”

the religious zealots that make a big stink about gay marriage need to judge themselves and not others. legalizing gay marriage has nothing to do with religion. a marriage license is issued by the state/government....does anyone remember about separation of church and state?

LMO6869, it isn't really significant who issues the license . I mean separation of church and state is not an issue. Who could conceive what license may be issued in the future . That wouldn't make something right just on that basis.

I can only speak about my own parents& grandparents and I don't think they were ignorant and stupid. They are gone now but if alive I know they would be dumbfounded by the thought of same sex marriage.
There were times growing up when we thought our parents were not as smart as we later realized they were. It looks like some of us are back where we started calling our parents stupid and ignorant again.
How about marrying your dog? Is that OK ? Repulsive? In a few years maybe your kids will call you stupid and ignorant if you think so.
One more thing stop blaming religion. How about just using a little common sense.

To compare gay marriage to sex with an animal is a huge over step. We are talking about two consenting adults. Seeing as animals cannot give consent I am sure you can see the difference.
