    It would be nice if the same arguments weren't being regurgitated over and over.
    By all means, please explain how gay marriage will harm society. Meanwhile, people can keep their misguided religious sentiments to themselves. Religion and government do not mix.
    Americans are religious people...the most religious in the Western world. Whether or not religion directly affects law or not, it does influnce it and it does influence society. Every society has a right to regulate the public behaviors of it's members. Violating the religious beleifs of sizeable portions of that society causes harm to that society wheter or not it causes harm to you or whether or not you see any legitimacy in that harm.

    Saying that religious people should keep their sentiments to themselves is no different than saying homosexuals should keep their orientation to themselves.

    using that logic, then you can't argue for SSM based on the fact that heteros are allowed to marry whoever they want because they do not contain the exact same arguements all the way through

    I could ask the same of you. why are you just fine with an entire segment of the populace (incest) being denied the right to marry?

    No way. I think gays should be allowed to be gay; doesn't mean I want to watch their parade. Religious people are more than free to be religious; but I don't want to be forced to live by the rules of their god. I ain't religious, one of the perks of that is that I don't have to listen to gods. They should be free to say and think as they like; but actually using government force to enforce their religious doctrine is not ok. Sorry.

    Read the thread. Seriously. And the last sentence-absolutely disgusting; I mean the lack of reasoning.

    That last sentence is what the "report this post" button was created for.
