According to my religion, Homosexuality is an immoral sin. Personally, what people do in their own lives is their buisness, not mine.
I don't see any reason other then religious reasons to not allow it. There is such a thing as seperation of church and state for a reason.
This really is a political issue, which is why my car has a bumper sticker that says "Last time we mixed politics with religion, people got burned at the stake."
When it comes to gay marriage I don't really mind it.
For one, it's their business not mine. If they want to get married because they deeply love each other then that's great! All the power to them.
Not to mention the fact that if say Steve and Jim want to get married then if they do get married they won't be hurting anyone. What possible harm could a homosexual marriage do? The only thing I can think of is that they might have some disappointed family members and that sprouts from religious belief.
I think why this is such a big issue with Christians though is that if the church allowed homosexual marriage then there would be a major hypocrisy. Mostly because the bible says that homosexuality is wrong so if the church started marrying homosexuals they would be going against the bible. That is really the core issue from the way I see it.
And if it's bad, then it shouldn't be legalized at all. After all, why give others the license to commit "depraved acts", as some call them? But that's just a should. The Supreme Court, after all, is still human, and is therefore capable of error sometimes.
So, to set things straight: how would people here define the word "marriage"?
(Forgive me if it seems as though I'm playing "state the obvious", but it's just making sure we aren't debating over things left ambiguous.)
Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
Me I don’t mind that at all. Because there is a law for them now and evry one have his-her rights and that fact .
And now most civil, domestic and registered partnership laws around the world provide fewer benefits than full marriage? So in many cases, life-long partners are denied some or all of the rights of marriage simply based on their sexual orientation... so why we banned or just say that must become illegal...

I think they are ill-morale, and shouldn't be allowed. God didn't make Steve and Adam, he made Adam and Eve. If the gays started to spread out everywhere, then how would there be humans, if everyone turned gay. And plus all of my beliefs are against theres, because I'm an Arab Muslim.
I am Catholic, and the majority of Catholics and Christians and everything else in the world do not support Gay anything. This, I feel needs to change. Love is Love no matter the sexual orientation of the individuals. This needs to change (the acceptance), and it will. It will take a while, but there will come a time when most of the world will become tolerant, not acceptive, of gay couples and marriages.
Legalized marriages for any and all combinations regardless of numbers, gender, age, or genome. To put it simply anyone can marry anyone ones or things from polygamy to pederasty to bestiality. Yes it is extreme but you asked for the worst and in the US (as other places) there are legal entities who are set to lobby for their own marriage privileges for just those things if a Federal Homosexual Marriage law is passed.
The least that will happen (to not look at a worst case scenario) is exactly what has happened in countries that have legalized homosexual marriages and that is the devaluing of marriage in general and plummeting marriage rates. The last studies I read on the subject involved drops in marriage rates of over 30%. You can say all want about how marriage isn't just about children and traditional families but the facts show that when anyone can get married to anyone for any reason marriage itself becomes devalued and seen as unnecessary itself. There are anti-marriage lobby groups in Europe who believe that marriage is itself a type of slavery to patriarchal tyrants and should be done away with. They are on record as recognizing the aforementioned connection between widened legalization and devaluing marriage and lobby for such laws for that very reason. Think about it for a second, the biggest legal argument for gay marriage is not "but they love each other" it is "they can't get the same insurance and benefits". We aren't talking about motives based on family unites but monetary advantages that would force the insurance and other such companies to extend benefits to people regardless of actual relations and open them to massive fraud claims. What is Marriage?
