Post Reply Gay Marriage
Posted 9/30/12
I'm not against it, honestly I don't really care who marries who. Because it has nothing to really do with me. Hey if you want to marry a guy, and you are a guy, by all means go for it! It doesn't affect me, I have no reason to be against it. I can't really comprehend why some people hate gays and are so against it. I mean, I can understand if you were grown up to believe that gay marriage is wrong, and gay people are going to hell or all that bullshit. But still; what an individual does isn't any of your concern (unless it's yourself of course). So whether you support it or not, you honestly shouldn't give a fuck. Let people marry who they want to marry. They're not doing anything different from what "straight" people are doing. At the end of the day we're all still humans. Instead of being against each other, we should be supporting each other, or just ignore what you don't like instead of making a huge deal out of it.

For me it doesn't matter what gender you are marrying.. What matters is that if you truly love your partner for better and for worse?

Sure! I don't have a problem with it. It's totally up to the people though since it's the local Government that has the power and authority to recognize which marriages are official and not the Church/local religious authorities in most places these days.

I'm indifferent to it. One the one hand I don't see any problem with gay marriage, on the other I don't see the point of it here in the UK, where we have Civil Partnerships(which as far as I can see are gay marriages in all but name - though I'm more than happy to be corrected on this

My general opinion on it is that it won't do any harm, but it's not an issue that would affect how I would vote in an election, unless I had two otherwise identical candidates where one was in favour of gay marriage and the other was against.

I might get bashed for this but personally I'm definitely against. And yes my religion is the biggest factor in why I think so. But instead of going out on that tirade and explaining why my religion believes so I'll just add a couple of thoughts I've been building up.

There is nothing wrong with marriage. And there is nothing wrong with two loving- committed people raising a family (nuclear or not). I also don't think that gay couples cannot do a good job of raising kids. I've actually seen the opposite. A man and his partner successfully raised 3 kids that were from one of the man's previous marriages with a woman, put them through college and had the honor of seeing them graduate with PhDs in various fields as psychology and english. These views might seem like a "liberal Christian" so to speak but its just the opinions I have outside of the obligations and beliefs that I hold within the Catholic Church.

To correct you.

When traveling or living in a jurisdiction outside of the country where a same-sex partnership was legally formalized, the sovereign power over that territory may only recognize the two people as in a partnership if they are wed.

In other words, if it is not called marriage, you may experience legal problems when travelling, even if that country has a law on the books (legislative, common or otherwise) that states it recognizes foreign same-sex marriages (ie: Israel, Mexico and a few other states, see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:World_homosexuality_laws.svg&page=1) or actually allows them to be legally performed within its borders.

Thanks for clarifying. I was thinking more about how Civil Partnerships are treated under UK law (which seems to be pretty much the same as marriage for tax and inheritance purposes), so I assumed that the change to "marriage" was symbolic. It hadn't occurred to me that it would have an effect outside our borders!

So, all the more reason to call it marriage then, right?

Marriage is about your love and devotion for a person.
Your gender doesn't matter.
Love is love.

It should be love who you want to love but with that said marriage doesn't allow you keep loving I mean look at gene Simmons( before he married) he went out with the same girl for like until his kids were 25 but marriage does include rights

Marriage is not about love. The belief that marriage is about love has spread only in the last few centuries in western cultures. In my culture marriage is for having and raising kids. Even if you get married and don't have kids your social status is lower than those with kids. Its basically equal to long term dating couples.

On a personal level I don't think being gay is right or natural for that matter, but even though I think that way I don't have the right to tell other people what they can and cannot do.

I'm not against Gay Marriage. I believe everybody has the freedom to love who they want to love and enter a serious commitment with them.
