Well, To start off..
Gay marriage being legal, Is absolutely RIDICULOUS!

There are many many many reasons, Just going to say a few.

One, Its simply immoral! What in the hell is wrong with these people?

Why if we as the human species have evolved so much, Do we still have same sex couples, and these fools supporting same sex marriage?
If we've evolved so much, Why do Dogs, Cats, Apes, Gorillas, etc show no signs of this?

It's absurd!!! I can't stand it, It makes me sick to my stomach!

To open the door to gay marriage, Is to open the door to incest, If two people of THE SAME sex can elope, Why can't a brother and sister, Or a mother marry a son?

Why? You fools that support gay marriage, Just think about that one day. Your best friend has a child with some man she didn't really know, She raises the child and at 17 they get married?

Thanks horrid, and disgusting!

I'm sure they said similar things about Blacks and Whites marrying, seeing as Blacks were seen by many as less-than-human during the era of that debate. "Let a white woman marry a black man??! What's next?? Letting people marry their horses or cattle???" We've evolved since then in the area of human rights, and we're trying to continue that. But as long as religion inflitrates human rights issues, we'll always be set back, a 'retarded' country, if you will. Because religion isn't about rational thinking, nor is it about free thinking, nor is it about equality. It's about separatism and spiritual elitism, a cancer on the world, frankly. But there's a LOT of you folks out there, and you're devout and undeterred, so we've got our work cut out for us. Like trying to convince an unmedicated skitzophrenic that the goverment really isn't tapping into their brainwaves through the light sockets. Gonna be a tough road, to say the least.

Thing is, homoerotic behavior HAS been identified within many, many mammals including gorilla's and lions.

It's best to do your research before stating things with such conviction.

After reading your post I was disgusted. I canít believe that a person such as yourself can be so narrow minded. To be honest that it was is ridiculous.  I am a straight married woman. I may not have any business arguing about a thing that obviously does not concern me. However, I am not afraid to state my opinion.
I believe that gay marriage should be legalizedÖ Go ahead and say what it is that you will, I wonít change my mind. There should not be a law deciding who a person can fall in love with. If I was a woman who fell in love with another woman, that is my own PERSONAL preference. That has nothing to do with where I stand in a community or what my life entails. As you stated ďopening the door to gay marriage is to open the door to incest,Ē You are so full of shit. Do you honestly believe that? Itís not the same thing. If a man wants to love a man or a woman wants to love a woman, who cares it does not affect you. You are not the person that made that choice. You donít have to live with that decision, you donít have to have sex with them, and you donít have to do ANYTHING that involves anything gay. You made your choice, WHY canít they make theirs?  
I hate people who throw the bible in the faces of people whose life decisions are different. This includes people saying that homosexuals wonít go to heaven.
First of all, I am a believer; however I do take certain things as a grain of salt.  So with saying this, we grow up going to church and we learn that we are individuals, we learn that we have free will, we learn that we should love everyone as they are. So if we learned these things as children, why is it a big deal that someone is different from the NORMAL people, as Christians say?  Itís not. The bible judges people who deviate from the ďnormalĒ standards, such as homosexuals. Saying that it is not right for homosexuals to get married is like saying that a person of color may not marry a different person of color. This is the same thing as being a racist. Itís called DISCRIMINATION. You may not be discriminating their ethnicity, but you are discriminating their preference. You canít say itís not the same thing.
The main reason that people have a problem with homosexuals getting married is because their minds are not open enough to understand them. You slander and discriminate them, because of their deviations from you. Because they are different and not what people consider ďnormalĒ, you canít open your mind to understand why they are homosexuals. Itís not right of us to judge someone based on their color, their sexual preference, or anything else about them. Iím not saying that you have to understand their choices, but I am saying that we should consider them.
We have our own free will to marry the man or woman of our dreams, so how is that any different for homosexuals? All that should matter is that they love each other and that doesnít make them any different from us.
You people treat homosexuality as a disease. I got news for you itís not! And another thing is, I know people like you like to through in the diseases that supposedly homosexual people carry. Got news for you on that too.. Heterosexuals get the same dam diseases. Being a homosexual is not a cause of a disease. You donít get prostate cancer from being gay, you donít get Chlamydia from being gay, and you donít get aids from being gay.  Prostate cancer has an unidentified cause that relates to the abnormal growth and division of cells that build up causing a tumor in the prostate gland. Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease that spreads when having unsafe sex. Aids occur when the HIV virus attaches themselves to CD4 lymphocytes and then multiplies themselves. And unsafe sex is not the only way for it to be transmitted. You may say that these diseases affect more homosexuals than straight people. That may be possible, but the diseases are not specifically targeting homosexuals. The fact is that these diseases can target anyone. I am a med student, so I believe I know what I am talking about! You can look up these diseases and their causes, and you wonít find that being gay is a cause!
I think you need a reality check and an open mind. Youíre so narrow minded and that is sad.  I hope that one day you can open your mind up at least to the possibilities.
Maybe youíre the one that is sick in the mind! Not the other way around.

I have to be honest and begin by saying that while you have a right to your opinion as a fellow human being, it might be better for everyone if you kept it to yourself.  The only thing that people within the LGBT community (myself included) have ever sought to do is spread a message of love and tolerance.  And we are condemned for it! I must ask why?  Is that message so much worse than yours which is narrow minded, and full of hate?

Allowing gay people the right to marry isn't going to suddenly destroy the institution of marriage; straight people did THAT with divorce.  We might add another facet to it but I highly doubt me marrying my wife is going to affect your straight marriage.  We've been married for over a year now and the world hasn't ended yet so where's the fire?

And you might want to do some more research before simply claiming that no animals display such behavior.  Black swans are notorious for this; there have even been documented cases where a pair of males will be in a sexual partnership where one of them will mate with a female; once she lays the eggs, the two of them run her off and raise the young on their own.  It has speculated that such behavior DOES have evolutionary benefits in that it allows non breeding individuals to be sexually satisfied without reproducing and adding too many mouths to the population.  It further allows the adults to focus on a small group of offspring and ensure their survival.

My final thought on your tirade?  If you feel that gay marriage is so disgusting, don't get one.

Gay marrige is no more absurd than a man and a women getting married. Being Homophobic isnt gonna get you any where in your life. how could a human say things like that about another HUMAN. People who support gay rights arent fools. men and men equal love, women and women equal love, man and women equal love, homophobic men and women equal stupidity!!! what if it was your mother your brother your sister your father your aunt or your uncle what would you say about it then?

I think it is a good thing that gay marriages are made legal. That was we don't have to hide our feelings or needs. We are as human as anybody else is.. I support the law..

One, Its simply immoral! What in the hell is wrong with these people?

Like many on your side of this fence, you equate morality with religious laws. Morals are society driven, usually generated when another person would be effected. Examples? Murder, rape, and theft are examples or immoral behavior.

Just because your religion absorbed some social morals in its effort to spread globally, doesn't mean your religion owns,or is the origin, of morals.

Homosexuality is not "immoral", it is merely against your religion's doctrine.

Why can't a brother and sister, Or a mother marry a son?

The purpose of marriage is to bestow a familial relationship to otherwise unrelated individuals for legal purposes.

Mothers/sons and brothers/sisters are already related, therefor their pre-existing familial relationship takes precedence.

I wasn't even sure if I wanted to respond to the initial post as it clearly has been written by a 10 year old child or something and I dont argue with children as im an adult.

Your first point that it's immoral...well that isn't really a point is it as its merely an opnion.  If it was a point you would have backed it up with something...so we will leave that "point" to the side.

Your second point that animals dont get examples of being gay, well its simply wrong.  Theres over 450 species of animals in the world that have been foudn to have gay relations....just the other month I read about a gay couple of swans in Wales...and swans mate for life.  Interestingly within these 450 species man is the only one who has displayed symptoms of homophobia.

Your third point about it being absurd, sick to your stomach etc etc, well again it isnt really a point, its just an opinion, go take an antacid for your sick stomach.

Your forth point about incest. erm what has incest got to do with being gay apart from nothing whatsoever?  You've just embarassed yourself by your lack of education, and if you aren't embarrased then I am embarassed for you.

Your fifth point I just plain dont understand as it has nothing to do with gays, its clearly an issue you have with people having kids at 17. Weird.

Anyway there you go, all your points smashed (apart from the last one that didn't make ANY sense ).

I agree entirely with what you said about this child being immature, Esteban. Although i am only 13, i beleive you might find that i am much more mature that him/her. I would just like to say to all those against gay mairage, you must be afraid. People are truly afraid of what they do not know or what they do not beleive in. I dont see the issue with gay mairage. I do believe people have the pursuit of happiness in this country, therefor, shouldnt they be able to be married and happy with whomever they may choose? It's common sense. What if they were to outlaw mairage between a man and a woman? If you love the person and they love you back why should you not be allowed to marry?

You're making the same arguments that people used when inter racial marriage was in the process of being legalized.  
Using the morally unsound reason is not valid in the US.  People who say it's morally wrong usually use Christianity to back this up, but the truth is, America is NOT a Christian nation.  Religion and government are two separate things.   So, if you enjoy not being persecuted for your religious beliefs, you're taking advantage of freedom of religion and should extend the same to other people.
How do you jump from gay marriage to incest?  If you can explain your logic, by all means go ahead and do so, but you fail to do that here.  Incest is illegal because it produces children with major genetic defects.  Gay marriage doesn't do this, and it never will.  Frankly, as long as everyone involved is of legal age, and consents to what's happening, why does it matter to me who someone marries?  It has no direct bearing on your day to day life or your relationship.  I've asked this question several times in several places, and have yet to get an answer.  Leaving religion off the table, how does gay marriage being legal DIRECTLY impact your life?  So far, no one has answered this.
You'd be more believable if you just said, "Gay people creep me out and it bothers me", that way, at least you're not hiding behind your "faith".  
If you don't like gay marriage, don't marry one.  If it bothers your faith, don't attend a church that sanctions it.  If you think it corrupts your children, it's your job as a parent to teach them about things like this, not the government's.
