Okay, i'm tired of hearing about this issue, so I will post once and put it to bed.
There's been so much back and forth on this that i'm dizzy.

Some conservatives say gays can get married with all the same rights but have to call it a civil unions.

Liberals say gays can get married and call it marriage otherwise it's a Fed civil rights issue.

Libertarians are just plain tired of hearing about the issue. They believe marriage is a contract between two individuals and can be handled at the state level. The Federal govt should stay out of it!!!

And of course there are those who simply do not care because it does not affect them personally and want to mind their own business.

Let them know America...

    We deserve the same rights as hetero people.
    To be married to the person we love.
    Marriage should be based on love, not gender.

    WTF? Civil unions are NOT the same thing as a gay so called Marriage to start with! I believe in personl rights for everyone in fact! Yet the very meaning of Marriage itself, has always been between one man and one woman only!

    Not true. The meaning of marriage has been redefined over the centuries. In biblical times, it could mean 1 man + many women, 1 man + his sister, 1 Deity + land (yup. God married Israel. true story), and a number of other types of 'marriages'.

    land yup god married israel true story number types marriages

    This is just one step on the evolution of the term 'marraige'. Heck you can 'marry' peanut butter and jelly in a far looser interpretation of the word - and yes, I've heard people use it in that context. People are so hung up on a single word that they forget just what they're doing to other people in the process.

    First: Mormons used to be allowed to practice Bigomy. Look that up if you're so inclined, but that's not 'one man + one woman' - so that defies the whole 'in this country' bit.

    As for other times in history, my chart I posted DID prove you wrong. Even the Bible itself allows for many types of marriages. In addition:

    Just like interracial marriages are....Which btw. were outlawed at the time about 50 - 60 yrs ago.....

    You can always get Mr. Bachmann to prey the Gay and Lesbian out of people then bill the Government for his services.....

    I absolutely support gay marriage. I think that the national government should be involved in the matter, because banning gay marriage is unconstitutional (equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment) and, as we all know, declaring laws unconstitutional is the national government's business. Can't be constitutional in one state and unconstitutional in another, you know.

    Against gay marriage but I will also say this is a state issue. The federal government is too involved in state issues and should be told to stay out it.

    You are entitled to your own opinions but not your own facts. Fact is two people in love raising children do not get the rights that remarried heterosexuals receive in tax filing status, health insurance and thousands of other things. Our 14th amendment says equal protection under the law. Government bias against a group is Rosa go to the back of the bus.

    I.E. "You've got a fair point there, one to which I have no comeback. I'm going to ignore this therefore and continue spouting hate at something because I don't understand it full [in spite of the fact that not understanding something is actually more reason to reserve judgement and certainly not a justification of acting out of hatred towards those you do not understand]."

    Am I wrong? After all, you gave enough of a crap earlier to firstly vote and comment, and then to get so defensive when your views were even slightly questioned...

    Its unconstitutional to tell a group of people they don't have the same rights as everyone else.
    It doesn't matter if its called marriage, its not going to effect heterosexual marriage so I don't get the idea it will
    We already have it handled at the state level and its absurd. You have people married in one state but not married in another. Stupid!!
    Regardless of what you believe religiously, religions should NOT have anything to do with government.

    Calling a union between homosexuals a marriage is a perversion designed to make homosexual unions seem more respectable.
