A right that should be given to gay couples.
Straight couples have the right to marry, there's no reason why gay couples shouldn't.

The right thing to do; an idea Jesus would have supported.
Radical Right Christian: Man gay people suck.
Jesus: No, God created us all equal and loves us all in our true forms. It's more important that we love each and respect each other than try and tear each other down for our God-made differences.
Then the Radical kills Jesus for "not believing his own teachings."

Okay. Let me clear up some confusion. There is NOTHING wrong with being Gay and there is nothing wrong with Gay Marrige. If two gays wanna marry, who fucking cares? Don't tell me that "It violates the saintity of marrige". Does marriage always seem like a gift from god? What about Las Vegas? You can get married there for like $20!! There is no "choice" in being gay and people don't become gay because they were brought up the wrong way. Also, gays can't just "switch back to being straight". If they can then why can't striaghts just switch to being gay. I bet $500 no of these Bush-Worshipping Motherfuckers have never even MET a gay person!!!!
Theses guys fucking piss me off! And no, I'm not gay, but I have a few gay friends and don't see why everyone hates them so much.

The single all important issue of the 2004 election. So important that when it was dangled in front of their noses, the country forgot all about the other issues.
Well, it's 2008 and the country's bankrupt, 90% of the manufacturing jobs have gone to mexico, there's a massive crisis in the healthcare industry, environmental regulations are set back 100 years, 5000 soldiers have died in the Iraqi civil war, and gas is up to 4.99/gallon.

But at least queers can't get married. I was worried about that. Thank god George W. Bush is a man of faith.

Something that should be legal because as long as it doesn't intefer with your life (which it wouldn't) you shouldn't be concerned with it. God loves all his children and that is a fact, but what is not a fact is that NO WHERE in the bible does it SAY "Gay marriage is wrong". Get over yourself uber-conservatives. Let people live their lives, and though I am in fact straight I think gays should be able to be happy.
I'm a priest and totally against the marriage between two men and two women, yet I molest little boys like it's my job!
Two people of the same sex promising fidelity and love to each other.

In response to some of the other arugments: If people who can't procreate naturally (such as a gay couple) shouldn't get married, than neither should straight couples who are for some reason infertile. There are plenty of heterosexual marriages that don't produce offspring; this is accepted, and so should be gay marriage.

In the end, it is only between the two people who love each other.
Gay marriage is an issue that needs to be thought about in today's society.

Gay marriage is a bond of love between two men or two women, but it is also hospital visitation rights, social security benefits, health insurance, retirement savings, family leave, home protection, pensions, and more. Everybody deserves these rights.

You can’t help your sexuality any more than you can help your race, age, or gender. People are born gay. Why in the world would anybody choose to be gay?? It’s not like the little boy or girl sitting in class contemplating their sexuality is thinking “hmm, I wonder what I can do to make people beat me up more and exclude me.” It’s ISN’T FUN being a minority. It ISN’T FUN being ridiculed and hated constantly, feeling left out, not being able to express your feelings in public, getting beat up, having people call you names, feeling unsafe… if sexuality was a choice, nobody would choose to be gay. But it isn’t a choice; it’s natural. There’s even evidence that it’s genetic. And if people are born gay, then gay marriage isn’t going to make straight people gay, so there’s no need to worry about the human race ending. Think about it.

And despite a little concept called ‘separation of church and state’ people want to bring the bible into this, huh? Well did you know that in the bible, there are more references apposing heterosexuality than there are apposing homosexuality? It’s true. So if you can say you don’t agree with gay marriage because the bible says it’s wrong, then I could say I don’t agree with straight marriage because the bible shows says it’s worse!

Another thing the bible teaches is ACCEPTANCE and LOVE. You don’t have to agree with homosexuality, but at least accept it. Because some people are gay, and nobody can do anything to change that. Even denying the right to marriage won’t make homosexuals disappear. If anything, it will make us stronger and more vocal in the community. So if you want us to leave you alone then allow gay marriage, because we’re not shutting up until we get equality. And no, civil unions are NOT equal to marriage. The idea of “separate but equal” just doesn’t work. Just look at race or gender.

Gay marriage isn’t going to “convert” or “recruit” people to the “gay side”. It isn’t going to weaken the society, or threaten the so-called sanctity of marriage (two thirds of marriages end in divorce. Britney Spears was married for 48-hours. What sanctity??). Gay marriage will simply show that discrimination is unjust. Acceptance and tolerance are inarguably positive concepts to promote. Without acceptance and tolerance, there would still be slavery, and women would not be able to vote or work.

Discrimination based on a person’s sexuality is no different than discrimination based on a person’s gender, race, religion, appearance, age, physical ability, etc. It all boils down to hating someone because they are different than you. Put yourself in the shoes of the minority. Think about what it would feel like to be denied hospital visitation, social security benefits, health insurance, retirement savings, family leave, home protection, pensions, and more.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, people. Let’s not deny anyone those rights.
Marraige = 1 love + 1 love. Period.
