Homosexuality is a natural and "normal" variant in humans and other species that inhabit earth. Its effect on procreation and population isn't even worth noting. Homosexuality is also something you cannot cure and to try so is extremely damaging to a person, Think of it as someone not being born right or left handed, but ambidextrous. It's not an abnormal variation and causes no harm to anyone.

I'm all for gay marriage and see no reason why there should be any law restricting such an act. There is no harm that being gay brings to anyone, the only harm is from how society looks at homosexuality.

A child can be raised in a very loving home with two moms or two dads and turn out just like any other child born in a good loving hetero home. The issue isn't at home, the issue is then when those kids leave home and have to hear about how their parents are bad people, they are immoral, or their parents are gross. The only people making that child confused and conflicted isn't the parents, it's society. There is nothing bad, immoral, or gross about being gay. The only people who make homosexuality an issue are those against it and continue the process of hate and hurting little kids.

I'm not really sure why people are so concerned about what two consenting individuals are doing in their own bedrooms. What makes these haters focus so much on sex and what two men or two women are doing together. Quite frankly its none of their business and the only thing kind of gross here is that they worry so much about it.

Other people's sexual preferences is honestly none of our business.
If they love the same sex, so be it.
They aren't harming anyone or 'tainting' others.
To think so is quite ridiculous and it drives me nuts.
I'm a bit sensitive only because I have two male cousins that are gay and my family is terrible to them.
Who are we to judge? Who are we to lay down laws upon someone simply because they don't conform to YOUR ways?
It needs to stop, but I don't think that it ever will and it's very sad.

I couldn't care less. If they want to marry a person of their same gender, go ahead. That's none of our business.

Personally, from a political perspective I'd prefer that marriage be a think of the churches and the government should have nothing to do with it, but since that isn't going to change I am all for equality so there is my answer.

My thought exactly

Marriage itself should be abolished. Civil union should remain for socioeconomic purposes, however marriage should be abolished or at least redefined to prevent equivocation between its religious roots. Love is a delusion; a long-term liability does not match its short shelf life.

Secretly I say yes, but my catholic church says no. If two individuals love one another and want to spend their lives together and receive the same legal recognition and benefits as other married couples, then they should be granted it. Its nobody's place to say they shouldn't be married and live happily ever after, right?.

Civil marriages should be unconditionally open to any mutually consenting adult couple irrespective of their sexes or gender identities/presentation. Religious marriages, meanwhile, should be allowed to take whatever legally permissible form and be subject to whatever legally permissible terms, conditions, and restrictions a particular religion or sect thereof wishes.

If the fact that the word "marriage" is common between these two entirely distinct and completely separable institutions is an issue I recommend recalling that words can in fact bear multiple, wholly distinct definitions. For example, the meaning of the word "significant" is simply "important" or "big" in vernacular speech, but the word has an important and specific mathematical meaning in statistical speech. "Marriage" is no different. There's nothing magical about the word "marriage" which precludes its capacity to bear multiple definitions which are dependent upon the context of the word's use.
