I believe they should have the right of civil union, but not being married by a pastor or rabbi or even a Sensei.
FYI yes it is,to me. Evryone should be following god. Do you, know how your her, god. You know why youre on this earth god, gay.marriage is wrong. We arent suppose to marry our own gender. Its.not the way God demands!!!!
If you don't want to marry someone of your own gender, then don't.
But people who do want to should be able to. Your religion is just one religion amongst many. It shouldn't have any influence on the laws that effect the rights of people of every religion.
Holy matrimony and state marriage are two different things. There are already churches that perform marriages for gay couples, and since that's up to each individual church/pastor, I doubt that'll change anytime soon. I'm talking about the legal side of it, the stuff like hospital visitation rights, tax write-offs, housing rules, and a bunch of other stuff.
Also, the idea of marriage predates Christianity, and should not be defined by Christianity or any religion. I don't see why gays need their own term for their marriage. It's just another form of discrimination. Another way of saying blacks can drink from water fountains, they just have to drink from different water fountains.
I agree. Gay people didn't want to have their own category for everything, they wanted to be treated like everyone else. I also think that more gay people are Christian than Atheist...I'm just guessing, though.
