It is a question of justice, of mercy, of compassion, of human development. If we are not willing to give to every human being every right we claim for ourselves, we are just so much nearer a barbarian than the cavemen. It is a question of humanity. To be not willing to give to every other man the same individual rights as you claim for yourself, is dishonest, selfish, and brutal.
There's no reason to believe that gays are anymore harmful, anymore immoral or anymore intolerant for the society, than you probably are! Gays at least keep to themselves & don't spew hatred in the form of sexual racism, based on sexual orientation for any particular group of people, to pollute the society & enrage people against each other, as you just proved with this question! Whoever claims any right that he is unwilling to accord to his fellow-men, is dishonest and infamous. If we are to support orthodox extremists like you, then gays are even infinitely more deserving to be supported & we will be supporting them.

Because all humans deserve equal rights and that shouldn't be determined by sexual orientation. And if you are talking about homosexual marriage. All consenting adults of mental capability should be able to get married, otherwise it's like a form of oppression.
Well I honestly can't rap mind around being gay. I mean how could you actually like having sex with the same gender? Seems kinda gross to me. But I don't hate gay people and some of them make be couples than most straight people
Why can't it just be "live & let live"? Why does gay marriage have to be sanctioned? Anybody can go to a lawyer and get papers drawn up to say anything you want, including who can get what assets in case of your death, who can visit in hospitals, who can get custody of your kids......so why is it that society has to not only accept homosexuality as "normal" but it also has to be sanctioned by some government entity?
support - not support?!?! i am so very confused as to why some people are preoccupied with the sex other people are having. and how does the love that one couple share influence or take away from the love their neighbors may share? yup...color me confused.
Why should we support straight people? What kind of question is this. If you don't like the life a "gay" person is living, simply put, don't live it. You are no-one to judge. Hell no-one should judge another person.
The same reason our grandparents or great grandparents helped African Americans and marched with them in dc with dr king. Inequality in ANY form is against our rights...also morally vile. And (I feel) like in the past with dr king and whites marching along side him and his followers, it's going to take heterosexuals to stand up with the gay community to really fix this injustice.
The answer is pretty dominant in the Bible. Paul, himself, calls it the greatest commandment. What is it... ...well it is love. Now, I don't know exactly what you mean by support, but there is a difference between accepting and tolerating. I also know I have much studying to do before I dare declare it right or wrong. I also date not speak for God to speak of another's salvation. But what ever the case, I believe we are to love. God bless.
We should love them but we don't have to support their lifestyle . If marriage is defined as a union between a man and woman, why do we need to change the definition? Why can't they have a civil union?
Many on this board have already expressed my sentiment on this subject. And to KevinBuckner... You are no better than those folks 50-60 years ago (even some still today) that was/is grotesquely against interracial marriage. 50 years from now... people will be looking back at people like you and wondering what was going through your mind.
Because we're people too and we all should be equal under the law. From my understanding gays are born gay (and I know because I'm gay). Inequality doesn't belong in a country like America no matter what people say. We're all equal under the law (or should be).
well why not? something as simple as who they have sex with should never interfere with your life, so by being anti-gay you are interfering with their life? would you be ok if someone tried to stop your love life? it is someones right to love who they are, dont make something as important as love be forbidden just because you think a little differently then them. and people that start the religious thing, its bullshit, if you dont like it, dont find some lame excuse to not like it, just say you dont like it, but dont go out of your way to try to stop it, i can understand if you dont like it, but dont go out and protest against it.
Because, one should not call evil, good or Good, evil. And to make a debate of it, is advertisement for evil The whole family, is being made a target of destruction when shame is ignored and repentance is far from their fore-heads. A person should be whatever, but why the soap box to promote wrong and destroy the values that lust has corrupted. Putting LOVE further into a seized-pool of ignorance and further into evil destroying children and families, making love a perversion of the intentions and design, and purpose which leaves a pervert with no solution but his own, which he should have avoided. In the end, a recompense... Why are they so mean, as to destroy the purpose of LOVE, and continue into the destruction of family life and that is the culture of death and abortion, evil all the way, but the mean people don't care, that the family pays the price of their sodomy.
where in the bibble dose it say its Wong to be gay itsays the city of Spartacus wus full of sin it could of that they went nice to people in need if it was that bad to be gay to kill a hole town it would be on the stone staghting the rules an it could be on there but we assume its because there gay i think god made someone for every one of us an if someone like girls more cus they had past problems with family they would be made for that person not how some other people think there other half should look like .... should i tell you your right or wrong or is its gods job an its you saying that not the bible so you are sinning if you think they dont deserve your RESPECT OR GODS LOVE but you got al right to my thoughts but you asked an i siad how i feel about an thats my right
