    Gay Weddings

    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
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    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.

    Under your God maybe. But mine doesn't care.

    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.

    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...

    That's easy. The lawyers get it all, just like in a lot of other divorces.

    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.
