Yes, but allow churches the right to refuse same-sex ceremonies

@948D63B  from Indiana disagreed…1mo

Churches are one of the main places people get married. So why not let the gays get married there aswell?

 @JonBSimConstitutionfrom Kentucky  commented…2wks

No, marriage should be defined as between a man and woman

That'd be an imposition of your beliefs onto the church.

Take the government out of marriage and instead make it a religious decision

This notion that gay marriage is a violation against God is BULL **** !!! I self identify as a Republican, but on the issue of abortion and gay marriage, I am abortion and LGBT friendly. If the Republicans changed their views on social issues, then the Democratic Party will be the party of the past. This is a free country, and these issues must fall into that meaning.

No, marriage should be defined as between a man and woman

If someone believes that marriage is a violation against God's will, you should respect their belief.

@8QY4RCH from New Jersey commented…2yrs

Yes but you should respect our beliefs too.

And I'm sure your god believes all life is equal...etc

I believe you are wrong and that I should marry whom ever I please

@8SCBGF6 from Kansas disagreed…1yr

No

You are not a christian if you support abortion and the LGBT community.

 @95CSKZJ  from Illinois commented…2wks

Yes

So I know what the verse says in the bible because I went to a christian church for a bit. BUT I would like to say that just because you are gay or any type of LGBTQ+ dosen't mean God hates you, because that is the way god created you. God adds diffrent spices in a diffrent order everytime so we aren't all the same. That's way my preacher doesn't over look the gay's that do come to our church. We are all open with each other and under stand that we are all asome.

@942JMM2Democrat  from Indiana commented…2mos

Yes

You are not a decent HUMAN if you choose to not respect others right to love. "Love thy neighbor." Lgbtq+ people are way kinder and more christian than you.

@8SLKCY7 from North Carolina commented…1yr

Yes

honey I thought Jesus loves everyone including the lgbt community. even if he didn't, isn't the one rule that trumps them all "love thy neighbor"?

@8WT6N85Republican from Utah commented…11mos

He says to love them, but anywhere in the bible does it say that women can be with women and men with men? If so I am wrong. Find those verses.

Yes, same-sex marriage in no way causes any literal harm to anybody, so I cannot in good will stand there and deny two people their true love like a strict parent not letting their child choose which flavor ice-cream that they would rather have, or forcing them to eat topings which they don't like on a hamburger.

Yes, but trans and gender nonconforming folks should also have the right to participate in the institution of marriage as the gender they identify with.

death sentence to the couple

Yes

why the **** would that be okay? What if they have a adopted child? Your just going to kill them? BTW have fun losing most of the population.

@4X96DTDfrom California  answered…2yrs

Marriages have been created by man and religions for: 1. Child/parent accountability/identification from fornication. 2. additional finances. Love is love. You don't need a plaque,and some hardware to be together.

@4RVQG98from Arizona  answered…2yrs

We have larger issues for our federal government to concern them self with. I can't believe that same sex marriage is even a thought."I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State."

@57KL84Cfrom New York  answered…2yrs

I don't like it because homosexuality is becoming a fad and it's declining our population.

Gay is a mental and gene disorder so it is ok to like your own gender but do not skip around with rainbow flags in your hands

@8N6HCV9  from Oklahoma commented…2yrs

Yes

I don't think it's a disorder. How can loving someone the same gender as you be a disorder? And how can it have to do with genes? I'd like to understand your statement, would you tell me more please? And the reason people skip around with rainbow flags is because of people like you, saying it's a "disorder". The rainbow flag is a symbol of loving who you are, after so many decades of hate and erasure. The reason for the flag is to show pride in love, and refusal to allow other's opinions define love and define who you are. Does that make sense? And what does a rainbow flag hurt, anyway?

Yes

Being gay is no more a "disorder" than being straight is, or liking chocolate over vanilla. Who cares what kind of flags they "skip around with"? You're allowed to drive your pickup truck around with truck nuts & Trump flags on it!

@8PGYSPP  from New Jersey disagreed…2yrs

Yes

Being gay is not a disorder and people should be able to skip around with pride flags because it’s who they are and it makes them happy. If you don’t like that then leave.

What the LGBT community needs to do is get over themselves and stop playing victim. I know people who are victimized by the LGBT community on a daily basis. I doubt anybody gives a hoot if the guy across the street is doing the other guy. You have your own church and religion that approve of your same sex marriage so you the LGBT community should stop and try to force your views and homosexuality on people who do not agree.

@8SGC76T from Alabama disagreed…1yr

is get over the

The LGBTQ isn't playing victim we are victims. As a member of the LGBTQ, I can say that yes a lot of people care who I'm sexually attracted to. I get harassed all the time for being pansexual and nonbinary. We don't force our views on anyone all we ask is to be treated equally to cis and straight people.

@4SNGYKPfrom North Carolina  answered…2yrs

Again, this is a personal issue and not a decision to be made by government. the first amendment already clearly states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"

I don't have a problem because we are all children of God and I don't think we were put here to judge

@8SLKCY7 from North Carolina commented…1yr

Yes

I'm personally not religious but i do respect Christians who support the lgbt community. I'm pretty sure the bible says love everyone or some **** and then people get mad at me for being pansexual lol

@4WP7KTDfrom Texas  answered…2yrs

If gay marriage is about rights and tax laws and inheritance and the legal benefits of marriage then why not just create a duplicate of the marriage tax code and have the gay community come up with a new name that they vote on. You don't have to disrespect people who believe in marriage to get the rights you want and deserve. Respect goes both ways. Give them their rights but don't encroach upon the fundamental and thus spiritual meaning of marriage.

@4T4HFM9from Colorado  answered…2yrs

Yes, sex is not binary. If you don't want to marry a person of the same gender you are, then don't. Religion is a male control mechanism...men are culturally conditioned to be oversexed and violent and consider women existing for to satisfy those appetites.

@4Q6QV4Pfrom Ohio  answered…2yrs

I feel that government should stay out marriages (religious only) but perform civil unions example Europe. Marriages are performed by churches, religion only. However, only the government can make it a legal union. (Taxes, insurances, 18 years and older age of consent, No child civil unions, civil unions for gays, even mult people marriages) In others words you would have two papers, two contracts. a civil union and a marriage certificate. So, go ahead and marry that 13 year girl, but you can not touch her.

@4RDZPXTfrom Colorado  answered…2yrs

yes but call it whatever you want because marriage is a religious scam so all should be civil unions

@4YT6HN8from Rhode Island  answered…2yrs

Goverment should only recognize civil union of two consenting adults as equal social and financial partners. No prenups/rent-a-wife

@4T4RQ4Dfrom Minnesota  answered…2yrs

Since it is caused biologically and a person is born that way, who am I to say it is wrong. Everyone should have the right to be loved. It is not the same as pedophilia since that situation always a victim. If there is a victim in a same sex marriage, it would be comparable to a man and woman's marriage.
*It's not logical to force a church's Pastor to perform a ceremony he/she feels is against his/her conscience. A same sex couple can find religious pastor who will preform  it.

@4Q73V2Nfrom California  answered…2yrs

Who cares!? It's none of our business to decide who someone can love. Why does anyone think they have a right to control this through voting or laws or otherwise?

@rpaul888from New York  answered…2yrs

How dare anyone preclude love from manifesting in any form? An elephant loves her child? A man loves a man. A woman loves a woman. So what. Again, the paradigm is overly simplified. We, each of us, is a part of life. Life is an attempt to manifest our interpretation of God into life, here on earth. This is called "goodness". As I choose to be good, in each and every aspect of "my" life, then, I can increase that manifestation of goodness for my lover, mu partner, my niece, my step-brother, my passed mom & dad, a flower, the earth, the resources which provide us the essence of life: food, air, water, shelter. Any and all commitments to the act of Love shall be condoned, supported, and respected.
