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.
    Mac... this is just absurd. Religious people SHOULD keep their sentiments to themselves. Heterosexuals AND homosexuals should keep their orientation to themselves. And government should have nothing to do with preventing the religious from doing anything the non-religious do, or gays from doing anything that straights can do.

    And no one is violating one's religious beliefs. Those beliefs are not be taken away or disallowed.

    Exactly. Nobody on this planet should have to live their life in an attempt at not offending anyone. Eleanor Roosevelt said it best.

    If you and another are attracted to each other and want to get married to each other, you can. If a two gay people are attracted to each other and want to get married to each other, they cannot. Straights have the right to marry who they are attracted to, in these circumstances, and gays do not.
    Still, my "right to contract" is limited in many ways by the government. Saying that I can marry a person I am attracted to does not change that. My right to contract is regulated, just in a different way.

    No, but they are valid reasons for society at large to oppose it.

    For the most part, but not entirely.

    This is a matter of opinion....I myself am often telling religious people I associate with that they "need to calm down" over this issue and many others, however, I am able to see there desire to influence the society they live in. You can't ignore the wishes of a sizeable portion of society just becuase you think they are being "silly".

    This is why I support civil unions....compromise.
