    Seriously, why are we still debating this.

    What effect does a gay couple getting married have on me? The same effect that a straight couple I never heard of has on me: Nothing!

    I believe gay marriage should be legal

    and luckily the two places I am from it is legal. While the third place (where I am a permanent citizen of) it is also legal, now we just need to fight the resistance and make most of the world legal. But for those who want to get married you could have a destination wedding...

    I've always thought the concept of marriage was

    a good idea, but not for the reasons why most think. I don't think that marriage is an act that symbolizes "love" between 2 parties, but more like a union of finances between 2 parties. That's proven to be validity of the union of 2 . Some where in the human races' timeline...

    Love

    There is so much hate in this world that I cannot fathom why someone loving someone else in a mutual, age-appropriate relationship could be wrong? I am a Christian, and I believe God is for love. Our "hating" of someone else's love seems hypocritical to me.

    Foolish Debate

    As a straight, christian man, I honestly have no problem with it. In what way does gay marriage affect me? None what so ever, that's what. It just seems foolish that there's even a debate about it. People that are against homosexuals and everything that has to do with them should...

    Yes, It Should Be!

    everyone wants to be in love at some time or another. and to celebrate that love we get married and commit our lives to each other. so, why does it matter if the two getting married are female and male, male and male, or female and female? it is our lives that are being harmed in...

    My best friend is gay,

    it's love, who are we to tell people who they can love? Only few species on earth mate for life, sex is a way to relieve tension and for procreation, it's rather unnatural to be with a single person, let alone the opposite sex the whole time. I'm straight and the only thing I'm...

    It's Just a Question of Human Rights

    Unfortunately, the history of America shows that human rights tend to lag far behind racial,religious, and other prejudices, but i don't understand why the religious right gets so upset about the concept. How does it threaten them? No one is asking them to enter into a gay...

    I think everyone should have the right to marry

    the person they love no matter what ethnicity,religions,beliefs,sexuality or whatever they are everyone deserves to feel that joy that marriage brings.

    Marriage is about love!

    Not gender! You should marry who you love! Regardless of their gender it sad to see people "hate" gays and transgenders be who you wanna be! Love who you wanna love! We shouldn't be hating "hate" is such an ugly word! Much love, respect and support! ❤

    legal. Everyone has the right to love who they love. This means everyone should have the right to marry to who they love, no matter what their gender or lifestyle may be like!

    Schizophrenia is linked to homosexuality,

    now there's nothing wrong with being gay but I think it's obvious something is wrong when your body is attracted to the same sex, you won't reproduce and at a basic biological level that is the goal of life

    Seriously.

    I am straight - but I believe

    that gay marriages should be legalised - if you love someone and know it's meant to be and know you want to spend the rest of your life with them why shouldn't you have the opportunity to legalise and have all the same rights as a heterosexual marriage ? .. It seems to me too...

    or straight it doesn't really matter. Being gay doesn't make you any less of a person. Why are people debating this? Everyone deserves a chance at happiness so gay marriage should be made legal

    It's not up to us to dictate who someone else can and cannot love! Just make LGBT marriage legal and MOVE ON! There are more important things to worry about! Like the debt and taxes and Female rights! Just legalize it and MOVE ON! End of story!

    Not being gay, this was an issue

    that I wasn't very interested in, either way, for a long time. However, as I have thought more about it, it seems to me that the real issue isn't same sex marriage. It seems to me that the real issue is whether the law should embody a particular set of "moral" judgments about...

    Legalize It Already

    I am so pleased that Irish people voted

    for Gay Marriages. If the theory that you are Gay because it is in your Genes. Then the new generation of Gay married people are not going to have any children. In a few generations then there will be no more gays. Hooray.

    whether same-sex marriage should be part of state law of federal law. I was inclined to say federal law, but I can also understand why people say state law due to religion. But then I got to thinking, isn't freedom of religion part of the U.S. constitution and thus is a federal...
