    No as a marridge is a statement to god in his house (church) and the bible strictly forbids gay relationships however i think they should be able to register

    What you're thinking of then is a civil union. Marriage, whether you believe it is or not, is a religious form of union.

    The controversy right now is, even though church and state are supposed to be seperate, being married gets you more rights to partner-related decisions than a civil union does. That right there is the main problem. Right now, if you want full rights, then you have to be married, but since it is a religious union, homosexuals are not allowed to do it. If civil unions granted the same rights and were allowed everywhere, everyone would be happy. (Well, except the people who don't like homosexuals, and since they're just being busy-bodies, do I even care? )

    Personally, I'm all for civil unions. Like I said in my previous post, it is nobody's business, politically, what gender you lend toward.

    My own opinion and theory is that people are so obsessed with making everyone else abide by their own set of standards because then they can prove to themselves that they're living and thinking the right way. Unfortunately, expecting everyone to live and think the same way means you're doing it all the wrong way.

    Look, maybe we could change the definition of "Marriage" or specify it into different sections that involves different kinds of marriages...

    ... because for all we know, over 75% of priests will not allow a homosexual marriage. And without them, it can't happen, can it?



    OR! We could create something SIMILAR to a marriage. Same rights, just a different way and a different name.

    ...

    o_o Or that might just cause more complaints. ^_^;;

    Well soshi your idea sounds interesting, but other people will see it as something linked to racism and it might create more problems than what we have now with this issue.

    Re: Should Homosexuals Be Allowed to Marry?

    Isn't marriage a traditional custom? I'm pretty sure homosexuality isn't the traditional type of relationship. Why do homosexuals have the right to infringe on what others hold sacred? Why can't they have some new binding ceremony? They could even give it a new cool name or special name. Its always looked as "normal" people are being intolerant because we don't allow things like this. I believe its the other way around. I believe the homosexuals have turned their back on society and are being intolerant to society's beliefs.

    Re: Should Homosexuals Be Allowed to Marry?

    That is a very tough question. Religiously, I think it's wrong. In the bible it says that marraige is a sacred bond between a man and a woman. If homosexuals are allowed to marry then we would be going against the word of God. I know I may seem to be crazy but that's just how I feel. I also think that homosexuals are brave to be able to be the way they want to be but I think they should try to find another way to show their love for one another. Homosexual marriages would be going against God. I'm sorry if I have offended anybody but this is just how I feel and I don't think any of you want to hear a lie.

    Re: Should Homosexuals Be Allowed to Marry?

    I don't mind that homos want to be with their lovers or whatever, but marriage is going a bit too far. Marriage is holy, and letting the same sex par take in a thing that is sacred, just isn't right to me.
