    And that is how it should be. You have no right to tell others that they can't get involved in a marriage simply because your religion disapproves, finds their relationship a sin. If you did, then so should other religions have that same right, including no interfaith marriages, no marriages after divorce, no marriages not approved by father/family members of bride and possibly even groom, no interracial marriages (because there are people who hold this as a religious belief, and many more.
    "A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    I'm not going to cheapen my marriage or my religion with the acceptance of sin. Sorry.
    That's too bad for you that you allow it to make you feel that way.

    Gay marriage has no affect on the sanctity of marriage for me. It cannot affect what my parent's union means to them, or my sister's. They have said as much. And my parents were Sunday school teachers. They have strong faith. SSM does not weaken their faith or bonds.

    That's fine. However you are the one claiming the sanctity of marriage. And the state marries them all.

    Edit: so what I dont understand is why there's no religious uproar over the marriages of felons, murderers, fornicators, adulterers....but there is against SSM. All apparently besmirch the sanctity of marriage. I see this as hypocritical. Even Hindus 'marrying' should be offensive then....and non-believers. And yet...silence.

    Up until a few years ago, marriage was always a man and a woman. [male and female]

    Marriage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Again this isn't about equality so y'all can give up on trying to convince me it is.

    THE STATE is the problem. [as in the FedGov.] deciding what is best for us.

    So you will sin more?

    I wont. SSM and homosexuality will not influence me to sin.

    Well the state already allows murderers, other felons, fornicators, adulterers, people who believe in other gods and people who believe in no gods to marry.

    So why cant the state allow SSM?
