It's so talked about that it's almost a taboo subject. But not quite. So, what do you think? Should gays be considered just another minority group? Is this the civil rights movement of the 21st century? What do you think about gay marriage? What do you think about gay anything, for that matter?

I do actually think gays are a minority.
I don't mean this in a hateful way, it's just my belief.

I support Gay Marriage. I really don't see why two people shouldn't be able to get

I support gay rights; I don't see anything wrong with two people who love each other
getting married, no matter what gender they are. 
I got into a debate with my dad over this once... it went something like this:

"Why shouldn't gay marriage be legal? :/"
"Because... if you allow a guy to marry a guy soon enough people will say 'I want to marry
a 10 year old' or 'I wanna marry a dog'."
"But it's two ADULT HUMANS. That's different."

I'm all for it. Love is love, and if you have problems with it because of your religion, then that's fine with me, but you shouldn't try to impose your beliefs on anyone else.

Tottally for it! There is no written law that says a man and a woman must marry. God
created each of us differently, so we live the different lifes he gave us. I had this same
conversation with a friend of mine after i went Bisexual, because she hates anyone that
isnt straight. I explained to her about it, and now she understands it better.

You guys know my opinion on it. Gay people have the right to get married in my book. Technically, marriage is just a ceremony to show that you love the other person. Why should there be a regulation on that?

Anybody can fall it love; to whoever the person. There are no rules on love, and anyone who thinks there should be, is an idiot. You can never go too far on love. Marriage, like Bella said, is just a simple thing saying those three little words. And if some people are against love, then they don't know what it is.

I don't know what all the big commotion about it, really. Is it even worth complaining??
It's their choice whether or not they want to be married. I just don't get the people that
are against it.

Love knows no gender, honestly. Plus, if god is real then how'd he let us develope an attraction to a cetain gender? And besides, some girl's these days, most of them, aren't exactly 'honest' people, so it's obvious why a guy just might start developing a feeling to another guy. Same with dudes too. Guys and girls most of the time have different idea's on things... Like... Guys love things like racing and whatnot and some girls (Not all) likes shopping. And guys don't, so why not go with some one else? And I'm not just saying this 'cause I'm a yaoi fan, but Two people deserve to get married. If it's a strong enough will. Plus, we've all got human rights, it's the whole 'Jewish should die' thing. Anyone who says gays aren't allowed to get married or shouldn't be are practically like Hitler. It's a tough argument, but I do believe people will come to their senses. Especially if they saw the movie "Prayers for Bobby".

I agree with Erika. Because honestly  I don`t understand why it`s such a big deal for you
to be Lez or Gay.

My thing has always been, straight guys are so into watching two girls make out, but as
soon as they see to guys holding hands they get disquested and feel the need to beat them
up. I support gay marriage because it's the union of two in love people. Guys that like
guys, girls the like girls, it's no different from a guy liking a girl. It's the same
feelings, emotions. ;l

Somehow, I feel it's somewhat wrong.
It's just not right. In my big black book.
Like Miss L. Lohan. It's just know.

And I can't avoid listening to what people say about "God made marriage to prove that two
people love each other" and the sort.
In case no one recalls, God made Adam and Eve, NOT Adam and some random gay peep.
No offense, I was brought up to dislike the two-gendered people.
It's wrong in the eyes of the Church, and so it's wrong.

I don't want to seem like a small-minded person, or some Jesus freak, but I JUST DON'T
What is Eden again? (:

It's okay to have a different opinion Eden, but let me just tell you something
about the defense of not liking gay people from the Bible POV.

I go to a catholic school, and this year all we did was read and study the bible. Granted,
I'm not some sort of expert now but I do know a lot more then I used to. And this helped
with subjects just like this. The main story prohibiting homosexuality in the bible was
about Sodom and Gomorahh. (sp?) These two angels moved into this town to visit a man, and
that first night a mob of people came to the house to kidnap the angels, rape them, then
kill them. (don't believe me, look it up). Because some of that mob were men, then a lot
of religions believe that homosexuality is anti-Religion. But, when I read the story the
only impression I got was that those mobsters were WAY too drunk ;D I kid. But you know
what I mean.

I'm not always that comfortable around gay people, I mean it can be a little weird to see two girls making out. But if they're happy and they're faithful to each other and they have a strong healthy relationship, I think it's okay for them to be together. I mean, we were all created equally so we should all have an equal opportunity to be with ones that we love.

Even though I'm hetrosexual, I find homosexuality not a problem. I come from a family of homophobics. Whenever they'd see a homosexual male they'd call them an "aunty man" as an insult. But nothing's wrong with it. It might have stated that God made Adam and Eve in the bible but when you think of it, he could've just did that for reproduction. Since Eve was a female she HAD to give birth and Adam was the only human male to do so. God needed 2 people and if he put roles for those two genders. But It doesn't say anywhere in the bible or the ten commandments about only loving your opposite gender. Christianity is supposed to be a religion of peace and love, so why would people who are christians discriminate and riot against those who are unequal to them? People are entitled to love who they want. As long as it's a real relationship built on love and trust. Eden I disagree with you D: In some eyes of the church it is wrong because some of those members of the church are just discriminators. I understand how you were brought up :/ Some people at a young age learn things from what they learn from others older than them. I see you're point, But I have to take this a bit back :/ We can't lead by the same example and personality of Jesus and Adam and Eve. If we were forced to then it'd be wrong to be black because Adam and Eve and Jesus weren't if you look in the pictures in a childrens bible. If we had to follow by their example then we could only be white straight people to be as perfect as them. Same thing with homosexuals :/ True christians can accept it without violence or hatred.
