What do you think about gay weddings? Do you think they should be legal as they already are in some countries?

It doesn't really bother me. Gays can still be gays without a legal title.

yeah your right i was on the go and quickly posted something.

alright: Gay people should be allowed to do whatever they want. If you love someone you should be able to marry them. And anyone else who thinks otherwise is a incompetent, fool.

Fags should be able to have civil services and all the same rights (when it comes to taxation, welfare, questions concerning a persons last will & testament, etc.) as breeders, but religious marraiges should be up to the Church they want a service with.

Marriage isn't religious anymore. You can go up and get married at the City Hall.

I believe that homosexuals should have the same exact rights as heterosexual couples have. I don't see how people can think love is limited to heterosexuals.

If it wasn't in the bible, we wouldn't be having this argument right now.

I don't mind gay weddings. Yes, they should be legal. The thing I'm not sure about is adoption.

There is no secular reason why same-sax marriages shouldn't be legal. If two consenting, monogamous adults love each other and want to spend their lvies together, let them get married. However, I do believe that churches, synagogues, etc., should have the right to refuse to recognize such unions as they are separate entities from the government.

So, on a secular level, legalize it. On a religious level, let the religious leaders make their own decisions.

Exactly. The churces believe that if gays are allowed to marry, then people will want to marry animals or inanimate objecs, which is total crap. As long as both people want to get married, it should happen.

That's an interesting point. Do you people think gays should be legally allowed to adopt children? Gay marriage only affects the two who wed, but what effect would it have on their children? Is society currently psychologically ready for this?

Aren't wedding supposed to be gay? If the wedding's not gay, you might as well not get married, because your marraige won't be gay.

I know where you're coming from, but they said the same thing about integration. The only psychological effect someone might have is tolerance, which God knows people would fear.

I think they're referring to the "happy" meaning of "gay".

That is for another discussion, but I will say this: no study has ever proven that a child with two mothers or two fathers will be gay. A friend of my boyfriend married a woman who has two mothers and the woman in question turned out straight. I believe that biology is by far the biggest factor in sexual orientation but the environment in which someone is raised will determine if someone will be able to accept it.

No gay person would ever be attracted to you, blackballs, so you have absolutely nothing to worry about.

Re: gay parenting---Would it be better for children and for society for kids to be raised in abusive heterosexual homes, or stable homosexual ones? The only thing that matters when raising kids is love, and it is absolutely ridiculous to think that gays can't love their kids as much as heterosexual people can.

Let me propse you a question. If hetro couple and homo couple were both equally loving, equally rich, equal in everything apart from which holes they like to fuck. Who'd you chose to be a parent? I'd pick the hetro cause they're just better for a kid.

Now of course if you said the hetro couple were abusive and the homos were nice hippies, I'd chose the gays.

I'm too lazy to read the rest of the thread, so I'm sorry if this is said before.

gay weddings are already legal in the netherlands, where I live. it works out great, I haven't heard about any problems and no one is really against it that strongly. (sp?) I don't see why 2 people who love each other shouldn't be able to get married.

That's a really great opinion.

I totally agree.

As someone who is gay, I agree with leo.

I just can't see how homosexuality is condemned by the bible and George Bush wants to follow that "ideal,"while in the same bible it condems the murder of others, yet he allows the armed forces to kill.

People just make too big a deal about homosexuality. Why should love be denied to those who wish to express it?

Dammit, I'm ranting and I just barely joined.

The Bible also says man was created "in the image of God", does it not? And it says God loves every single human being equally.

But then, the Bible is all bullshit anyway, right? No one can verify most of what is written. And it has been translated so many times that most of its original meaning will have been lost. And even then, the New Testament was mostly written over 200 years after Jesus' death.

Bush uses religion to play the American public and get the votes from the so-called "religious right".

A fun little fact about the Bible: It has been censored so much over the years and spun into what those in power want it to be. The actual passage people cite when they condemn homosexuality, when translated back into Hebrew, is really about manners when a visitor is staying in someone's home. I believe it's about not sharing a bed with your host, or not sleeping in your host's bed. It's along those lines.

I personally think there is nothing wrong with gay weddings and everyone knows deep down the bible is alot of bull shit. Homosexuals can't help how they feel same as hetrosexuals so why treat them differently ? . I mean there is all this equal right shit whilst there is still racism and prejudice people in this world but then the world is an evil place. Most homophobic people are very likely uncomfortable with thier own sexuality and want to be see as the hard man/woman, and not a little panzy in which they probably are. At the end of the day it should be people's happiness that count's. As you have probably found out if you know any gay/lesbian couples are the majority of them are a hell lot nicer to be around than alot of straight couples.

If a kid has two moms or two dads, they'd be abused for it their entire lives, and they'd grow up lacking a motherly and fatherly influence. I don't know exactly what effect that would have, since I've never seen anyone adopted by gays, but I'm sure the effect would be negative, at least the way our society is right now.

Not nesscarilly (sp?), the child would only feel that way to other's of the same sex if that was how it was meant to be. Also, if the child grow's up he/she is likely not to be homophobic and will be a more understanding person.
