    Individualism.

    There are churches today perfectly willing to perform same-sex marriages. Prohibiting it denies to these churches the right to practice their religious views as they see fit. To oppose gay marriage is to behave anti-individualistically and collectivistically - to be a socialist-of-the-spirit.

    There is no difference between saying "the State should have the authority to direct the resources of individuals as it sees fit" and saying "the State should have the authority to direct the private lives of individuals as it sees fit". None at all. And these anti-communist conservatives who oppose gay marriage are but mirror images of the Statist authoritarians they pretend to rail against; they have simply abstracted their collectivism to the level of the 'spirit'.

    I don't care about the issue, and want it legalized so people will shut up about it already. It's a stupid topic, gays getting hitched doesn't hurt anyone, and there are more important topics of discussion to worry about.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Homosexuals have the same duties to their ancestors as anyone else-- it is not proper to deny them the ability to uphold them.

    I'm opposed to same-sex marriage for the simple fact that I believe it is contrary to God's will. I know it's difficult for many to see now, but decline in morality will spell the eventual destruction of our society. Proof that we are on that path has already been manifested through the advent of additional things like legalized abortion, legalized marijuana, homosexuality, and just pre-marital sex, in general. All things most of you cherish, but become very defensive (sometimes even hostile) over when an opposing view is expressed.

    There is nothing wrong, or immoral about homosexuality, where there is love, there is God, and there is no difference between the love of a same-sex couple, and an opposite sex couple.

    There is no love in disobedience.

    I don't care one way or the other, but since there is no conceivable way it would adversely affect me one way or the other, why not.....

    Disobedience to what? The old testament isn't followed by christians anymore, and the new testament mentions it 4 times, 2 times of which were in passing, and 2 of which were in only a slightly finger shaking manner. source

    In fact, jesus didn't say a word about it.

    Being true to how you think God made you does not exonerate you from His Justice.
