What's your opinion on gay marriage?

Charry Charry
Do you think it's a religious right? Do you think it's good or bad? Do you think marriage should be allowed to anyone? Just wondering eden's opinion.

I personally think there's no harm in allowing it.

My personal opinion is that everyone should be able to get married so long as it's because they're in love. The only marriages I don't support are those of convenience and those that happen while drunk in Las Vegas. And when I say I don't support them, I don't go around telling people not to do it, I just say nothing. Someone else's marriage is absolutely none of my business.

I don't care about race, religion, political opinions or sexual preference is. If you want to get married, I believe you have every right to get married.

(As a divorced woman, I don't recommend it, but to each their own. LOL)

I believe everyone has the right to be married. Whatever makes you happy.

There is already a post on this as a poll : ) It might be helpful to look at instead of starting a new topic

this poll may be helpful to you, if you're curious. A high ratio of supporters for gay marriage answered the poll and there are several pages of great conversation and replies

As for my own beliefs, I feel that everyone, and I mean EVERYONE should have the opportunity to marry as long as it is not an animal-human marriage or involves a minor under 15 (16+ I feel should have this option so long as they have parental consent and both parties are FULLY consenting, and I feel should go through counseling as well prior).

I feel this is a violation of civil rights. These people are discriminated against and forced to live their lives under laws that don't support them. I see this as a violation of their civil rights. Religion has no place in the making of any law nor should it even be considered as a reasoning behind not allowing a law to be made. There is no other reason to not allow them to be married. They deserve the same rights hetero couples do and should be entitled to them.

I totally agree!!! Love is love. and You can't tell the heart who to love. What ever happened to EQUAL RIGHTS??? Just because you're "scared" of something doesn't automatically make it wrong!

I agree I think Gay marriage should be allowed. I think people are trying to use the Bible as a way to hate gay people with out being called racist.

I like the idea of separating marriage into a civil union and the marriage. The first one is legal rights, and everyone gets that. The marriage comes down to individual religions can bless or not bless at their discretion. And behold, marriage gets to be sacred for some people, but everyone gets to be equal

Anyone should be allowed to marry whoever they want. So long as both people love and care about each other.

But then again, a lot of people/states/countrie s are not very civilized and still live under rocks.

I think marriage should be allowed between any people above the age of consent (including gay marriage and polygamy and even incestual marriage, as long as kids aren't brought into the picture [included because of recent news story]).

Religious affiliations have a right to prohibit certain marriages deemed "unholy", but from a civil standpoint it's stupid that same-sex marriage isn't already allowed everywhere.

I think any person or persons over the age of consent should be able to enter into the contract that is a marriage and get the benefits of it. Heck, if more than two people want to enter into this contract and live together in a group setting, I say they should be able to. I mean I understand not forcing religious groups to perform these marriages, but from a civil and governmental standpoint, they should be allowed.

I am one hundred percent in support of gay marriage and any other marriage between consenting adults of legal age. Religious organizations have no right to dictate law or policy to anyone outside of their own congregations. Our government was founded upon a principle of separation of church and state for exactly this reason -- the government should not be a tool of any outside force, nor should it give one religious organization the power to oppress another. Those who claim that "freedom of religion" means their religion gives them the right to dictate the actions of another -- be it on the issue of gay rights or reproductive rights or medical decisions or anything else -- are always getting it exactly wrong.

Everyone has a right to live their lives according to their own values and beliefs, but no one has a right to infringe upon the lives of others for any reason.

Furthermore, these people who claim gay marriage will open the door to people marrying dogs and cars and invisible aliens really need to stop talking. Dogs and cars and invisible aliens cannot give consent. These comparisons are irrelevant and ridiculous.

I would oppose a law that attempted to force religious organizations into performing marriages. That would not only violate freedom of religion, because people do unfortunately have the right to be narrow minded bigots if they keep it to themselves, but it would also open up religious organizations to predatory lawsuits. Even those churches that currently marry gay couples generally have a screening process in order make sure both parties are serious about the relationship, etc., and religious leaders need to be allowed the leeway to make that sort of judgment to best serve their congregations.

No it isn't a race. Neither is being female, yet we had to fight for our civil rights. Homosexual's are a group of people that are discriminated against because of their sexual orientation. That makes it a violation of their civil rights. And that makes it racist because it's discrimination. Plan and simple.

No it doesn't.

Neither does being discriminated against because of your sex. That's called sexism. Not racism. Racism is where you're discriminated against for your skin colour and/or ethnic background - not sexual orientation, or gender. Not all forms of discrimination are racist, and to say it is racist just because it's discrimination, and a violation of civil rights, is ludicrous.

You can be discriminated against for many things, and they aren't all racist. This is such a case. Racism is a subset - a specific form of the much broader term discrimination.
