What are your personal views on gay marriage?

I fully support gay marriage and believe it should be allowed everywhere, but I would like to know the views of the ask community :D

I believe gay people have the right to get married and live a happy life if you don't like it then look away.. Love is love.

But are you against legalizing civil marriage for them?

Look at it this way: While a couple of opposite-sex Satan worshipers engaging in sadomasochist sexual practices with multiple partners would be denied the marriage sacrament by most any religion, they can still be legally married by a Justice of the Peace. Why should that couple be allowed to marry when a monogamous, committed same-sex couple cannot?

Civil marrage is fine but thats not good enough for them in there quest for normality it's actual marrage that's the problem

I have been advocating for gay rights for about 10 years and have never heard anyone on this side of the issue -- gay or straight -- want to change religious marriage. I mean, why would they? Religious marriage isn't legally recognized. All we want to do is extent the same legal rights that monogamous, committed opposite-sex couples have, to monogamous, committed same-sex couples. In other words, keep marriage laws just the way they are with the one exception of making them gender neutral. So if civil marriage of same-sex partners is fine with you, then we are on the same side of this issue.

Exactly, Hunter. Religions in this country have never been bound by civil rights. There are still churches which deny membership, much less marriage, to blacks and interracial couples -- and the government has no power to change that, such is our doctrine of church and state.

I'm straight, but I am totally for Gay marriage. I think that if two people love eachother, why should they be kept apart. It's inhumane to discriminate against someone for falling in love. I mean how would you like it if you were kept apart from your love and discriminated against

I am a Christian, but I have no problem with homosexuality whatsoever, I am totally in support of gay marriage. People cannot help being homosexual, or heterosexual, or bisexual, or asexual; they are born that way and people do not choose their sexuality. Why shouldn't people therefore be able to marry someone they are in love with? People also cannot help being born black or white, and they do not choose; and a while back there was some controversy over whether or not both races should be allowed to marry each other. It is essentially the same principle; it is against some people's beliefs, but gay people cannot help being gay any more than black people can help being black, or people born in September can help being Virgo or Libra.In my mind everyone is the same, and born equal; so why should we not be able to express our love in the same way? I am happily married to my husband, and I think that all people should be allowed to marry the one they love. I think the controversy is all preposterous
You asked for my view, and there it is. I must ask, however, that no one comment and say that I shouldn't support it because I am a Christian, or anything like that. Thank you!

I'm not a fan of marriage in general. "Traditional" marriage - for anyone who's read the bible... is all about trading women as you would goods. Its about male domination and ownership of their wives. (Corinthians 11:3: "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man). Perhaps religious people have a problem with gay marriage because there isn't a dominant partner (lol).

My opinion.... everyone should have the same rights. We are all equal. If we have the right to marry in our society... everyone should have access to that right. To deny anyone rights afforded to anyone else is prejudicial and wrong.

personally i think anything against nature will end up badly

For someone who has a same-sex orientation, going against nature would be for them to act as if they are heterosexual. There was a time in the Middle Ages when the church punished left-handed people because they were going against nature and were considered possessed. Hence, we have the definition of the word "sinister" which has at its root "left hand". Homosexual behaviors are pervasive throughout the animal kingdom, so in that respect it is very natural.
Report as
forgive my straight honesty but the a** wasn't built to serve these needs but for other natural needs. There were people who lived Middle East in certain era who were damnd cause they allowed these sort of actions. You can google it, that town located under the Dead Sea. Now i know that people have right to choose and i respect that, however i still say any unnatural action you do will fire back at you someday. We all heard about the disease that comes due to practicing sex in the wrong way/place.
Report as
@BlueLife: First, you do realize that the sex act you referred to is practiced by many heterosexuals -- in terms of sheer numbers, probably more than there are homosexuals. There are entire pornographic websites devoted exclusively to that particular sexual practice between consenting heterosexual adults.

As far as "built to serve these needs", was the mouth "built" for kissing? Were arms "built" for hugging?

I'm not sure to what you are referring to by the reference to the Middle East and damnation, but I don't have to Google anything. One need only look in the Bible to see that homosexuals were executed by law just as homosexuals are executed by law in certain Islamic states today. I don't think I would use the laws of a repressive religious regime as a model for how we should treat people in a free society.

Lastly, I assume the disease to which you are referring is AIDS. The source of that disease was traced to eating a certain type of monkey meat in an area of west Africa. Heterosexuals also spread STDs, but it is not a reason to prevent them from being married.

Let them be i don't mind but since they asked about "personal views" this is what i have to say about it and am sure of it. I don't know about what the Holy Bible has to say aboutthis issue but am sure it's not so different than what the Holy Quran has to say about it which it is an upnormal act may lead to several bad and harmful consciousness. What if male were satisfied by males only! and so goes to females! what do you think this world will turn out to be? And i hope tha you don't say "bilateral relation" can work it out! It's not a jungel it's a life holdes too many rules to serve the human rase first then the cretures who share this land. As far as am concerned i don't agree on it but i won't hold their freedom to do what they please, it's their life.
Report as
@BlueLife: While I may disagree with most of what you said in your last comment, I do agree completely with your last sentence. All they ask is to be given the same freedom to choose a mate that the rest of us have, and I applaud your willingness to do that. Thanks.

I'm not gay, but I say yes. Nothing wrong with two people loving each other, no matter what sex, race or native tongue. I think people should have a choice about whether they marry a girl or a boy. Any two people should be able to have any kind of relation ship with anybody.

We have two types of marriage in this country: civil and religious. The former must meet constitutional requirements and the latter, not recognized under civil law, is governed by the attending religious institution. Civil rights laws are not, and have never been, binding on religious institutions which means churches are free to deny marriage to anyone they deem unworthy of the sacrament regardless of civil laws. Concerns that the government will compel churches to recognize same-marriages are unfounded. Civil marriage will remain, as always, an option to those denied the marriage sacrament. The concern should be that religion will compel secular government to deny the civil right of marriage based on religious dogma as was done when interracial marriages were banned.

I am happily married. I believe that same sex couples should be allowed the same rights that my husband and I share. I support same sex marriage.
I would love for someone against it to give me one RATIONAL reason why it shouldn't happen? People need to stop worrying about others so much and start worrying about themselves.

Maybe you have a restricted definition of "rational".... Maybe you're not realizing the reality of eternity....

@Steve: That may be a rational reason for someone who is a believer in that particular after-life scenario to not engage in a same-sex relationship, but it is not a rational reason to impose your religious beliefs on those who do not share them.

My thoughts on the meaning of rational are not restricted. However, I do not believe in eternity as you do. So why do think your beliefs should restrict the different beliefs of others?

I have no problem with it, but I am concerned with same sex couples adopting children, due to social problems for the kids in early years. I have witnessed this in the school aged children of former neighbors. Young children in school can be pretty mean.

@Olpaint: This was one of the arguments used against interracial marriage, and while those fears were well-founded, it was the very act of close association between children of interracial parents and children of same-race parents which helped speed up the changing attitudes of society towards tolerance. We all hate to see children harmed, but think of all the homosexual children being harmed by bullies. Only a change in societal attitudes -- as happened with interracial marriage -- will reduce the harm to those children. The bottom line is that children will be harmed either way, but only legalizing same-sex marriage will make it better faster.

Of course you're right, but my concern is based on personal experience, it's hard to ignore what I have witnessed.

@Olpaint: I grew up in 1950s and 60s Texas. I also saw the hurtful intolerance and judgement towards children based on regressive social attitudes. But how much time would be appropriate to delay anyone's rights? How long should we have waited to recognize the rights of interracial couples in order to prevent the bullying of children? Until all children were safe from the extension of that right? A 50% reduction? Progress has consequences.
Report as
Well, you all have me thinking, I suppose my concerns "real as they are," could be outdated.
Report as
then all children should be taught not to pick on others, or maybe that is isn't weird to have same gender parent. that way, there will be no ammunition for the bullies.
Report as
@Pixie: I agree. But the growing existence of nontraditional relationships, and teaching adults and children to be accepting of nontraditional relationships, work together as one builds on the other to form the incentive for parents and social institutions to teach tolerance. We need both the experience of seeing nontraditional relationships in action which in turn promotes the desire to teach tolerance.
Report as
i agree, and by seeing that non-traditional relationships can get married, it will give them the chance to see it in action, yes?
Report as
Absolutely. The more states that legalize it -- even against the will of the people, the more it will found to be a non-issue. It will eventually become legalized nationally. It is only a matter of how soon it will happen.

I am straight,but have several gay friends. I dont know why people feel its their business to decide who someone loves.Why is it wrong? People are so ignorant,they use their religion for bigotry. Going to church doesnt make you a christian anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car. Heres a thought,nobody invited you into their bedroom to look! How does it affect you ,exactly? Get over it people,its happening. I wonder what would happen if it were reversed and us straight people couldnt marry the one we love. I would be in agony,falling in love with the perfect man and then some law saying,oh you cant get married, I cant wait to go to my first gay wedding...it will be fabulous!
