I Believe Gay Marriage Should Be Legal

    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...

    The idea aint gay. Its married.

    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?

    I'm somewhat unique in the fact

    that I am a southern Baptist who believes that gay marriage should be legal. My reasons is I have started to wonder in the last year if gay is a choice as ive been taught in church and school or if in fact as many ppl say its an inborn thing. I also believe that we shouldn't...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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!

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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!

    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...

    who you marry? Why should anyone else be involved with who you marry except for you and the person you love? It's nobodies choice but yours! Not the laws or anybody else's!
