    White, Straight, "Mostly" Republican male here needing a little help. I simply don't understand how in this country, in 2012, we are still having this discussion. I would love someone to explain to me how denying rights to gays and lesbians is American. I look at my own sexuality...

    Let Me Tell You Why

    I support Gay Marriage and I 100% believe it should be legal. I do not care what Religion you are, what sexuality you are, what race you are or what gender you are. I do not care if you think being gay is a Sin - it does not matter. I hate that people hide behind religion to...

    This Is Why Let me just start off with saying

    that it's not a choice to be gay or not. And even if it was; so what? It's a choice to be an a$$hole too, and you can still get married. To me, saying that you can choose your sexual orientation is like saying you can choose the color of your skin. It just can't happen. Anyway...

    I Support Gay Marriage....

    I have had that supernatural exchange of faith through Jesus Christ. Yet I do not call myself a christian. I refuse to do that. I follow Jesus. I follow God. God loves every single gay, LGBT etc person in the world. God supports each and every gay etc person with His love...

    I support gay marriage,

    because I am gay. Marriage should be between two people who love each other and not limited to man & woman. I'm engaged to the greatest woman in the world and we should have the right to get married. I know we can travel to another state to get married (NY, Mass or Cali) but...

    It's called 'marriage' you can't help

    who you fall in love with. It shouldn't bother people who they marry, it's their life....I'm quite proud that New Zealand is the first place that accepts gay marriage and is legal. My uncles came back from England to get married, and I love them so much...both amazing people.

    I never understood why people are against gay

    marriage. What happened to separation of church and state? Religion should have nothing to do with whether or not two consenting and non-directly related adults can get married or not. Banning gay marriage goes against our rights as free people. Hell, we shouldn't even have to...

    Marriage Is For Everybody.

    Instead of saying "marriage should be only between a man and a woman" which has really weak arguments supporting that view, just let everybody have a spouse. But just one spouse. The way I see it is that marriage is a legal union between two consenting adults who are otherwise...

    for anyone to have anything against gay marriage is religion. But if you are against gays because of religion then you are a hypocrite. There are MANY rules in the bible...about not working on sundays and how women shouldn't speak unless spoken to and if you ask a pastor about...

    Love

    Love is love... why does it matter the sex, nationality, religion or anything else. If two people are in love then let them be happy. They aren't hurting you and I rather see more love in the world instead of hate. We have way too much of that already. You don't have to like it...

    Indeed I do - I don't think the state should

    restrict who you can get married to, as long as the parties consent. Who you choose to love is your business only. Having said that, I don't agree with these lawsuits against bakers, florists, etc to force them to cater to a gay wedding ceremony. If they want to decline your...

    As a lesbian of course I support gay marriage.

    Damn shame the state (Louisiana) I live in doesn't feel the same way I do. Unfortunately I don't see that changing anytime soon because the ban was just held up. Because of that ban my fiancé are flying to DC so we get married.

    and if marrying someone the same gender as them would make them happy then they should be allowed to.

    Explaining Gay Rights To Idiots

    The government have no right tell someone they

    cannot marry in their own country. It's disgraceful, although I'm straight, I have a gay friend, and he had a lot of trouble coming out. His exact words were 'being gay is not a choice, it's who you are'. Of course they should be allowed to marry, we're all people.

    Making laws that say marriage should be between

    "one man and one woman" is unconstitutional. The first amendment protects the people from and prohibits the government making laws respecting any religion.

    Not only am I supportive of gay marriage, but I got married even though there is no law to approve it. I believe in marriage. I wish more LGBT people would just marry anyway, to show the world, we don't need a law to live out what we believe.

    Love knows no gender,

    and isn't that what marriage is - a celebration of love? We should be free to love and marry who we wish. It's going to happen all over the country and sooner than most think! And of course I support it because I'm gay and my gf and I are planning to get married!
