I don't care either way, but what do some of you think about the gay marriage thing? I just thought this might stir some debate. Let's get it on!

Well I personally think that gay marriage should be legal in some context, I don't believe it should be called marriage necessarly, but I do think that it should some how be recognized legally some how, by some name.
I have friends who are gay, and they're a couple, one of them got sick and they've been life partners for the last 22 years, they wouldn't even let the one in to see the other because they didn't consider him family, the same went with medical decisions. They took the word of a family that was distant and out of his life and couldn't get it from someone whos has been there everyday for the last 22 years. I think thats wrong, It doesn't make sense.Thereís a promise I need you to make
While Iím gone you take care of the love
And Iíll deal with the hate.
Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
Just care for your children and sleep tight
Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

I think there is no place in marriage under GOD for gays. That how it was intended and should stay.

Quite frankly, I'm not a homosexual, therefore it doesn't concern me.

We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

Modern marriage is a product of the state, and not religion. I know that religion wasn't a factor in my marriage ceremony, but signing my name on a LOT of papers for the state was. We weren't married in a church and we didn't need a diety's blessing. With my divorce from my ex, religion wasn't a factor, but state laws were. Religions vary greatly in how they view homosexuality, and even different sects of the same religion can't all the time agree on it.
I personally don't see a reason not to grant the same rights and responsiblities to a devoted homosexual couple that a heterosexual couple gets. Let's face it, they can't make it into a joke anymore than Hollywood already has, or even the "I've been married 8 times!" club.

Regardless of your religious beliefs, it shouldn't be up to the state to enforce it.
The government has NO RIGHT to tell two legal consenting adults what they can and cannot do. Period.
As for people who argue about the "sanctity of marriage" I have four words for you: Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie.The virtue of spirit has no need for thanks or approval. Only the certain conviction that what has been done is right. -Jor El, as played by Marlon Brando

I am all for it. Everyone should be able to love whoever they wish, and if they want to spend eternity with them and lucky enough to find *the one*, then that's great! I can only worry about me and what I think God will think of my actions...not anyone else.**********************

I think Tony should be able to marry whoever he wants. If she/he is a farm animal I only ask that we require diapers in public areas for health reasons.

If two men were married and then got a divorce, who would get what? Under Michigan's fucked up laws the man always looses. This in itself makes it an impossible quagmire.

Gays don't bother me one bit. Let's face it; they're here to stay. I believe they're born into it and it's not a choice to be made in their lives. They should have the chance to be happy with a partner just like the rest of us do...Calm Like A Bomb...

Marriage is a civil union.
I've known more then one woman who found out later in life that her husband was gay - it was a shattering experience. Imagine spending 20 years with someone who never truly enjoyed having sex with you. This wouldn't happen if gay people didn't feel they needed to hide from society.
When I was a kid, "drip" was a common slur...the response was...A drip is a drop, a drop is water, water is nature, nature is beautiful, thanks for the compliment!
I believe that G-d created us all, and that includes gay.
I think more people are deeply hurt by society's rejection of gay people, then just gays.Molly Weasley makes Chuck Norris eat his vegetables.
