    So recently I've been think about

    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...

    (This is a post of mine from a previous profile.

    I decided I'd post it on my new profile) Gay Marriage I am fully in support of gay, lesbian and transgender couples' right to get married and to be equal to straight couples. Being in love with someone of the same gender should not be a reason to be denied a right that the...

    I am happy this happened

    and all, and I saw some of it when I went to the tv. But I cared more for the Imagine Dragons playing after the announcement on the Today show than I did the coverage of the ruling. Am I alone on that? Only coming down to see the musical guest for a topic such as this?

    And now it is in the United States.

    Marriage is a lay institution. The primary interest is that of society, not individuals, and even less that of the salvation of Christian individuals. A country whose constitution prescribes the separation of Church and State cannot in good conscience object to the marriage...

    I think the fact that homosexuality

    even has to be such a big deal is disgusting.

    congratulations though the bad thing is i think

    the fight has just begun. I'm afraid its going to be like intergration when it comes to the states allowing it cause marriage laws is in the hands of the state not the hands of the federal government and some the southern states im afraid are gonna fight this.

    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.

    Hateful Christians are allowed to attack people

    for their sexual preference and other things so why can't two people of he same sex who love each other get married?

    Gay marriage is already legal in Scotland

    but not in many other places. I believe it should be legal everywhere but doubt very much that will happen.

    Children born in the U.

    S. from this day on will never have to grow up worrying about who they can marry, and that's a beautiful thing. This just proves that love will always win over hate and discrimination. Finally, 50 states of gay!

    Love is love. No matter

    who it is between, a guy and a girl, a girl and a girl, a guy and a guy, or any other type of relationship pairing, it doesn't matter because gender does not determine whether or not two people are soulmates. Love is the most important thing in the whole world. Nothing matters...

    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...

    Saying someone can't get married

    because of what you think is like telling someone they can't have a donut because you're on a diet.

    Okay guys, it's been like how many weeks,

    and I still have to see you rant about your fight against gay marriage? Well, I guess if the bible says it's wrong you do make a valid point... In that case, since the bible also says: "Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material." (Leviticus 19:19) If that t-shirt...

    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...

    Well done America! We legalized gay marriage

    over here in the UK last year. Did it hurt us straight folk? No, of course it f***ing didn't. Did it cause society to crumble? No, of course it f***ing didn't. Did it cause god to rain fire and brimstone on us? No, of course it f***ing didn't. (Not that I believe in god anyway...

    OMFG people just get over it!

    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!
