    Re: Give marriage rights to gays?

    i think that gay people have the same rights as the rest of us. that is what i dont get is why everyone is making a big deal about it. Alot of my friends are gay. for people to say that they cant get married is also saying that everyone else who is lesbian or from a different race that they cant get married. everyone should be allowed to get married to who ever they want.

    I don't think homosexuals should be given the rights to wed. We were give different body parts for a reason... If we legalize homosexual marriage, more and more people will become intrigued by it. Though I highly doubt this will happen, what if everyone began to take interest in there own gender? Well, there goes the end to (wo)mankind.

    Lol, is this a joke? There are far too few homosexuals to hinder the growth of humankind [approximately 5%]. In case you aren't aware, right now humanity is suffering from an overpopulation issue that's only getting exponentially worse by the decade. The current worldwide population is literally double what it was about 50 years ago, and the numbers are still increasing at an alarming rate.

    Either way, homosexual marriage won't "encourage' others to do it too. Are you encouraged to try it yourself? You can't force yourself to have those kinds of feelings for the same sex if you don't already.

    Re: Give marriage rights to gays?

    Note the "I highly doubt this will happen". Anyway, the percentage of homosexuals is going to become larger. Our population doubled 50 years ago. The percentage of homosexuals has also increased. If you want to go on about the way our world's just going to continue to over populate, you may also want to keep in mind that that won't be the only thing our world is doing. The worlds percentage of known homosexuals has leisurely increased over time. It's not like it's going to stop anytime soon.

    Furthermore, I'm not saying people are going to feel peer pressured, or whatever, to become gay. But when something becomes more known, it also gives people the illusion that it's natural as well. Think of it this way, if gay marriage becomes legal, it's going to become quite popular. Since homosexuals have gone against "The Circle of Life", they're going to have to adopt children. Any gay family is going to have to adopt. If all homosexuals wanted to raise a family and had the necessities to do so, 5% of children would be raised in a gay household. Growing up in that would make it seem less odd making 5% of all children more likely to find this natural and maybe even appealing.

    Do I need to elaborate more?

    Actually this isn't necessarily true either. Statistics and studies suggest that the percentage of homosexuals in the world remains about the same throughout most of recent recorded history. Since the population increases, the amount of homosexuals increase as well even though the percentage stays relatively the same [about 5% or so]. There has never been any study that remotely supports the notion that the amount of homosexuals has increased. There is however, sufficient evidence to show that more homosexuals are open with their sexuality now, and the probability of individuals being open with their innate sexuality is increasing due to society becoming more accepting of homosexuality as a whole. My post was meant to debunk the possibility of population decreasing as something quite unrealistic.

    I strongly disagree, and this statement almost seems ridiculous to me. The only people that are going to be interested in gay marriage are people that are already gay to begin with. Straight people will not become interested in gay marriage, ie. since they are straight, they will much prefer a partner of the opposite sex. Let's be realistic about this.

    This would actually be a very beneficial thing. Too many people produce biological children [many when they aren't ready] rather than adopt children that live in orphanages etc. The amount of orphaned kids is also getting exponentially higher as the years go by. This is basically just a subcategory of overpopulation, but it's becoming an issue on its own.

    Not to sound rude, but you do know that most gay kids come from straight households right? Where do you think children come from? I'm gay myself despite the fact that I was raised in a straight and very religious household, where my mom has been heavily against gays since as far back as I can remember. I've had no gay influence in my life whatsoever, yet my feelings for other guys have always been there since I was extremely young. Raising a child in a gay household isn't going to increase the likelihood of them being gay, and there are absolutely no psychological studies that I can find referenced on google or psych database that support this notion at all. And although this is just from my own personal experience, I do have a younger male friend that was raised by two gay dads. Although he's very accepting of gays and is completely comfortable with it, he doesn't have any gay feelings in the slightest manner [only looks at straight/lesbian porn, has sex with girls, etc].

    Again, I'm not trying to be rude or disrespectful, but everything I understand from my life experience as well as myself and several years of in-depth psych/bio studies and statistics in college go completely contrary to what you're trying to suggest.

    I know a lost debate when I see it. All that you say is very logical, and though my views still stand where they are, I do believe I will be bowing out of this argument.

    Re: Give marriage rights to gays?

    i think gay marriage should be allowed. you say that you should marry the one you love and all that stuff, but whats so different between a two men being in love. its just like a man and a woman being in love that goes the same for two women being in love if they love each other then they should have a right to get married. no people don't have to like it, but they should at least accept it and let them get married. if its cause of everyone else for why they dont get married then its not fair thats like a man and a woman not geting married cause of everyone else. so in a way its just like romeo and juliet in a gay or lesbian way. they are human just like us and have feelings too. taking their rights away on marring each other is like taking the rights away of two people from two different races or religions. love is love if you loved someone of the same sex as you and they loved you and you two wanted to get married and everyone was against it then wouldnt you feel that its unfair. people go on bout change and bout love and war and all of that. this is just like when slavery was happening when they didnt let someone with black skin and someone with white skin get married. now a days no one has a problem with that or any other race so why is it pretty much repeating itself with the gays and lesbians like they use to with people that has black skin and people with white or just any different race geting married. like with the jews and the christians when the christans started out they were treated like the jews were treated during hitlar just during different time periods yes that is on religion and this is on gay marriage but that was another example of how history repeats itself with different people is put in the same spot for mostly of the same reasons. yes some reasons may be different but over all its all the same. in a ten years will it be accepted or will war break out because of it tearing apart the country like the country was torn apart through slavery. only adding on the reasons of different races marring. yes it may be different but at the same time its not taking away gay marriage rights is like the different races and riligions marriage rights, if two people logve one another i believe they should be alloed to get married

    Re: Give marriage rights to gays?

    I think homosexuals should be able to marry, there really isn't a reason not to. If two people love each other, then that is what really matters.
    I'm sure that heterosexuals wouldn't like it if they weren't allowed to marry and or adopt children.

    Marriage was actually made by the government and should not have anything to do with religion at all, the government and religion are two different things; yet religion interferes with homosexual marriage =/ .

    It's funny cause some people say that homosexuals marrying will destroy marriage, but mean while all of the heterosexuals keep getting divorced and if any of them are religious; Divorcing is a sin according to the bible at least. Homosexuals marrying would probably help revive marriage.

    Homosexual marriage would actually help the environment, because if they could get married right around the corner; then it would save gas that would be used to go to another state, country or whatever.

    As a homosexual myself, I do not want to marry. Marriage is overrated in my opinion, all people do is get divorced these days.
