    Roman Catholics do just that same thing, yet many still divorce. I don't think the state should even be involved with marriage so why should classes be required?

    No one should agree with you on that point because it is simply incorrect. Many gays do have a notion that marriage is sacred.

    I think many black people get offended when gays compare themselves to black-suffrage, which is why so many Blacks voted against ssm right after voting for Obama in the 2008 election.
    This ignores the fact that support among the black community for SSM is increasing (Black support for gay marriage growing - SFGate) (After President Obama’s announcement, opposition to gay marriage hits record low - The Washington Post)

    Also it ignores the fact that there are black people who are gay!
