Now, the majority of people do share a common set of morals on what is right and wrong. Even some people who kill people believe that they are doing wrong but do it anyway for whatever reason. Others believe that they are not breaking their personal beliefs on what is right by doing something because their morals allow them to justify their actions. It doesn't make what they have done right or okay when it comes to living in a society together or when it comes to ensuring the values that the vast majority hold as "right".

Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
So that is what I'm asking...and if your view is based solely on your religious beliefs...then please explain why you think others should have to be subject to them?
My 'personal and religious views' are different than the way I vote on this issue. I am not gay nor interested in being gay. Just like abortion...I (dont think) I would have had one but still vote differently...out of respect for others and the fact that we are Americans.
You are the one trying to limit your fellow Americans for reasons you will not explain, except that they are sinning. But you dont explain why you dont apply it to 'other sinners' or more importantly...why are some Americans outraged that gays would ask to marry, but not when fornicators and adulters do? No one tried to start a movement to prevent them. Why? Their sins are no different, according to the Bible, than homosexuality.
You just dehumanized about 10% of the American population who:
--do no harm to themselves or anyone else
--perform acts that thousands of straight people do as well
--contribute a great deal to society in all professions, sports, the Armed Forces, science, and the arts
--have and raise families in the same ways (and just as well) as straight couples
*You* claim they are perverts. Even the Bible does not say that. As I said before....*you* are the one that ONLY FOCUSES on one small part of their lives. How big a part did sex play in your marriage? Was it 'everything?' Does it define your marriage, the sex you have?
It doesnt for gays either. Their relationships..and marriages...are the same as straight peoples...for better and for worse.
People that commit all sorts of perversions are allowed to marry. People that do the same sex acts as gays are allowed to marry.
Well then how come no one attempts to stop any of them from marrying or re-marrying?
Why "just gays?"
