    That poll is highly suspect. Public opinion polls of same sex marriage usually average 35% approval and 55% disapproval. This is the first poll I have ever seen with such a low percentage supporting civil unions over same sex marriage. The most recent Pew Poll found that 53% of Americans oppose same sex marriage.

    I am a 100% for gays being allowed to marry. Many of my best friends are gay.

    The question in the title does ask for an opinion, like it or not.

    Frankly, sometimes an opinion is too stupid to matter.

    So this is about non-gay, same-sex marriage?

    For or against gay marriage, who cares what your opinion is if you don't have a valid argument to make one way or the other? That is what a debate forum is about. Not to preach, but to prove your views are based in reason.
    Exactly, who cares what your views are CT? The issue of same sex marriage cannot be settled based reason alone (imo). It is like asking which religion or non religion is correct.

    I'll save you the time, I know you don't care about my view.

    Well, perhaps opinion is changing. And you didn't tell us what the support figure is for the Pew poll.

    In any event, my point wasn't about the numbers, but rather the absurd suggestion that everyone who supports gay marriage/civil unions must be secretly gay.

So if they church they go to allows it, the gov't shouldn't be allowed to say they can't get married. Also, two atheists in this country can get married.

    The argument that two men would get married just for the benefit of saving money is ignorant. It's implying a man and a women wouldn't do the same.

    I would like to hear an argument against gay marriage that doesn't involve religion or exploitation.
    Close but no Cigar. the topic is, should any same sex person be allowed to marry. Or should only gay people be allowed to marry, of the same sex?
