Interesting that the 2 that have voted did so the way they did, yet FAIL to explain they're reasoning.

All marriages should be legal or illegal. No one should be excluded. If all men were created as equals then we should treat them as equals. Denying them the right to marry is the same as saying there is something wrong with them. God made gay people and I would never say God made a mistake. Unfortunately, many other straight people have no problem with judging God's creation.

God created pedophiles too. Should they be allowed near elementary schools?

Being attracted to the same or opposite sex is not the same as raping children. You can be born into this world gay, straight, blind, retarded, deaf, black, or white. People aren't born into this world as pedophiles, murderers, drug dealers, terrorists, or any other scum of society. God created the man that became a pedophile. God did not create a pedophile.

Both are equally unbiblical.

Marriage should not be a government issue.

Um well lets see.......As a gay man, me and my partner can not legally go down to the court house and get a legal marriage. Yet, my straight neighbor can take a woman, get married, divorce her after a year or so, find another woman, marry her, divorce her after 6 months, and repeat process, with no problem.

Explain to me how this is fair?
