I think it's crazy that they're not allowed to get married in most states. It would be better for EVERYONE if they could.... the more rights they have, the more accepted being gay will be. And then they won't end up marrying the opposite sex just to hide their being gay. Which does happen more than people think it does.... look at McGreevey.
I don't see why not. Let there be love dudes and dudettes
Although I also kinda agree with the "We have more important things" one too.. But for gods sake let them be married, honest'l can't see the problem.
I say hell yes, actually. There are people who claim it will destroy the meaning of marriage and a host of other things. Het people have already disgraced oh so sacredness of marriage by serial weddings (being married more than once), Britney spears and ger 27 hr marriage, affairs, abuse and a host of of other things. If two people deeply love each other and mean it, I don't see why they should be held back just because they are of the same gender. I say humans should pay a little more attention to the birds....
Gays should be allowed to marry. What they do in their private lives is their own business, not the government, not religious fanatics, no one but them. And there are so many marital benefits that straight couples get that gays should be entitled to as well.
Bush goes on about family values and making gay marriage illegal because of that "reason". Well, there are plenty of straight marriages that end because of abuse. What happened to family values there? Just cuz a gay couple got married does not mean that they are incapable of raising a loving family.
And to say gay parental figures would "warp" the minds of the children is absurd. If anything, it would teach the children to be more opened minded about other people.
Ya know I couldn't agree more. People have to start taking off the blindfolds, and seeing that just because yer gay doesn't mean that there is something wrong with you, or that you are incapable of loving or rasiing a family. Gay people should have the rights jsut as straight couples do, and they should be given that equality! It's not fair that they must constantly fight for something that in a way is so small ya know. We have so much going on in this world but people have to focus on bashing gays, it's just not right.
yeah it's really stupid while they are trying top stop decent ppl form being happy they and screwing over the rest of the world while doing it. They should really leave religion out of free will and government >
probably will ... i think it my be written in the constitution of rights that the un wrote up ... why can there be ppl that live in other countries be persecuted for violating human rights but us can't be
I think it would be best to completely drop the whole subject. Let people marry whomever they love, no matter what their gender! I have many gay friends who have been in their same relationships for many many years, yet they can't be married just like anyone else. Why? Because prejudiced bigots feel they need someone to point the finger at and say "EEEEW! That's so wrong! It's a sin! You're going to hell!" while they get away with boozing, beating up their wives and kids, and thinks it's okay to hate someone just for being in love!
While I agree with the "OF COURSE!" option I voted for the "We have more important issues" option. There is indeed too much focus on them, why is it such a big deal? There are, you know, people dying and the like but no. They keep picking on the gays. Is that all people are capable of thinking about and discussing, the 'bad'? I don't hear much good on the news much anymore...
And I went off topic, LOL.
But yes, they have just as much a right to marry as a straight couple. Likewise I think a straight couple should be allowed to live together and raise a child without being married. So long as they love one another and have that devotion, why should you need it to be approved by other people? A marriage certificate won't magically bond people together forever, only they can decide if they want to stay that way.
So very true! People are always constantly picking on the gays....but why can't they get married? They have as much right as any straight person, and besides it's just a simple piece of paper and the world is going ape shit over it when people are dieing all over the world, but beside the whole gay marriage thing it doesn't seem to matter.
Life first, then we can decide what we do with our lives! If that makes any sense. O.<
Gay couples have every right to get married. Love is something that is found within the soul, not within the body and it's shape! Since the body is simpley a vessel to carry us through this stage of life.
If ya can find true love in anyone good for you! Yer one step ahead of me! But seriously why can't they get married? IMO they have every right to just as I do!
