Yes, it should. No one has the right to tell two people they cannot be married.

The first amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..."

If the government is going to make laws about marriage (they pretty much have to because of taxes and all that crap), then they can't not let gays marry because a religion says so. We do not have a christianity ruled government. We can't force people to obey christian views/values. If the government is gonna give out all this crap with marriage then everyone constitutionally has the right for it.

I'll see any asshole that disagrees with me in hell.

I don't see why it is a big deal, love is love doesn't matter if they have to dicks or two pussies. My moms a lesbian and its a lot better, im my own opinion because I lived with my dad and his wife and it was really weird. Anyways my mom and her wife have been together for eight years and they show more love then any other couple i know.

While what you're saying is the way it should be, it's not the way it actually happens. The truth is, most of the government is religious, and it usually does affect the laws, as shitty as that is.

Yeah. I'd be completely ignorant to say otherwise. It's sad what things are coming too.

[t]here is no inbetween this time


While I'm firmly on the "yes" side (with 6 and half billion people on this planet we can't quite feed and plenty more coming, homosexuality is great, and there's absolutely nothing, zero, immoral about it by my conception of morality), I have serious problems with the institution of marriage and, had I the choice, would sooner see it reworked completely than legally altered to allow same-sex couples. As it is, I see, at the time of typing, literally no (legitimate) reason not to allow gay marriage, and plenty of good reasons one should legalize it.

All that said, the "inbetween" option, as you put it, strictly speaking for the sake of polling and things should be considered a "no" because that is the status quo, and anything not explicitly in favour of altering the existing law is against, for better or worse, legalizing gay marriage.

Gays should be allowed to marry. They have the right to be miserable like the rest of us.

Not quite so. Most of the government are wealthy elites from corporate classes who hold largely secular views personally but are too rich to care much either way, and make sweeping "religious" decisions to win the Evangelical vote, giving them power to contradict the views of many/most of the same Evangelicals in pushing through their economic agendas.

I don't think that's a good way to think of it. (Sorry, I don't want to be mean)

From what I understand of your statement, that is like saying: If NAMBLA wants to fuck little boys, let them decide if they should be able to or not.


Edit: ^thanks, lol. I get too hyped up on issues like this.

Yes, of course gay people should be allowed to marry. The only arguments against it are poor at best (morality, slippery slope, unnatural).

only concerning yourself?

what about the rest of the people? should they screw off?
#34
I recently revised my personal opinion on this.

Religion and state are seperate.

Those who are married under law, should be shown legal benefits. Those who wish to marry under religion, should not be, as religion and state are seperate.

Marriage under Law, and Marriage under Religion should be kept seperate.

Any couple who is married under religion, should also be allowed to apply for marriage under law, to receive those benefits as a legally married couple. However, the state should not have to legally recognize a religiously married couple as together, and any legally married couple, should be allowed to practice their religion, regardless of religious disposition to their state as a couple. Therefore: A gay Christian couple should be able to marry under law, and still attend their church.


That's the most logical thing I could come up with, anyways. Pretty much makes everyone happy, as long as the Conservatives learn to accept that Religion and state are two different things.

I voted no, and before you go off on me, let me explain. It's not just because people think it's morally wrong, married couples get certain legal benefits, and our governments money is ****ed up as it is just with the strait couples marrying.

So you think the government should blatantly make a law against the first amendment of our constitution and deny other people their rights based on your beliefs?... nice

I love the world.

Oh, props for having the balls to say you voted no.

And you think that justifys you from denying a minority a human right?


If your government has problems, it can work them out, without denying a group of people simple legal benefits. Our Canadian government has got along just fine financially since we legalized it, we're still as in debt as ever. It will not effect your government like that, as after all, it is a minority.


That arguement has no backing, whatsoever.


EDIT:

Nice sig, though.

Whether or not religion and government are the same isn't the point. The reason that people vote is so that they can elect a candidate that best supports and represents their views, and if their position on a religious issue is represented by a candidate, they will probably support that candidate. Just because you aren't religious doesn't mean you are more correct in your views than someone who is.

^I have no idea what you mean by 'goverment's money is ****ed up', but the solution isn't discrimination.

I dont think it has anything to do with religion, I think it has to do with what people expect out of the word "marriage." I believe there should be such a thing as a civil union where legally they have all the same rights as a married couple, but all were doing is asking for trouble by trying to impose something onto ignorant bible freaks who make up most of the voting population. So I voted no.
