I would vote for it. However, law and religion are supposed to be completely separate things, and that's why all the arguing is happening. Religion does not want gay marriage to occur because in religion, marriage is supposed to be a sacred ritual between two people of opposite sex.
However, there is a major difference between a civil union and marriage.
For civil unions to be available to all couples regardless of their sex, that is what I would vote for. Because that is the law, not religion. A civil union is 'marriage' in the eyes of the law, not in the eyes of religion. That's what needs to be fought for. Nobody should be trying to change thousand year old religions just because they don't like their old customs.
Religion is religion, law is law, people need to realise that and keep them separate.
Marriage is between two people the love each other. I don't really mind gay people they are nicer than those christian who want there right gone. Love should be shared with any kind of relationship gay and not.
I would vote for it. Though, I must say my reasons why have pretty much been summed up by all these comments (at least the ones agreeing with me). Actually, though, I'm bi, might like to get married to another female at some point, and honestly have no idea whether or not the gods approve of it. I'm Norse Pagan and I know the Norse way back when would burn homosexuals at the stake (it's where the word fag [meaning "burning stick"] came from). I still don't know how the gods felt about it then or now, though.
Truth is. I would vote in favor of gay marriage. A lot of my friends are gay and to me, it doesn't matter. They are still some awesome friends. I think we should even go further and stop introducing them as: her name is... She is gay. I mean, they are normal, balanced people.
So it matters not who you love, if it's men, women, nyancats... We should all be allowed to bond with our signinficant one the way we want. If a gay couple want to be united, recognized by it's country as a married couple then LET THEM DO IT. For fuck's sake.
they do it without bothering anyone. I find it horrible that in a world calling itself civilized and modern people shall not be allowed to show their love and affection in the sunlight
I wouldn't let gays to adopt children (not because of gays, because of society), but ofcourse they should get marry. They have feelings too, right? :/ I'm not really a fan of gays but they are people too...
I would vote yes, Not because I have a girlfriend myself But because aren't we all human? Don't we all have the same skeleton? The same organs? The same beating heart? Wouldn't we all lay down are lives for the ones we love? or just stop to think of their beautiful smilling faces? What's so different about loving the same gender? And that whole population crap doesn't work anymore, Infact I find that we're over-populated. Also the bible does not deem it wrong, You probably read it wrong or something, Because no where in the bible does it deem being homosexual "wrong" I would vote yes, Because we have the right to marry who we wish to. Me and my girlfriend are still waiting for that day we can marry. I've been wanting to ask her to marry me for awhile now and I'm pretty sure the both of us refuse to go somewhere else to get married. It would be nice to have it where we born and where we met in college.
