    Default Same-Sex Marriage

    This has probably been done before, but I just wanted to see how people felt about the issue. Also, feel free to write your opinion on the matter. I for one completely support gay marriage and am totally for the LGBT cause.

    i think it's utter nonsense that it's even an issue...antiquated, uncivilized and borderline barbaric....who the hell are we or anyone else to say two people can't marry if they want to....ridiculous.


    edit:
    i mean really...some states will allow an 80 year old man to marry a 15 year old girl but not allow two mature people of the same gender? and...some states will even allow a brother to marry his sister....because what?? that is considered more holy? more in keeping with american family values? what the hell kind of logic is that?

    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I'd really like to hear some logical reasons as to why is illegal in a lot of places.

    I'm serious, I can't think of one single reason why it would be. It's crazy.

    Mainly because of religious traditionalism, although religious people who don't support gay marriage almost never seem to give a good answer as to why the don't. It's always the same BS about protecting the family or something, which is totally wrong and prejudice, because it's not like theres a clan of gay people who want to run around and murder the oh so innocent families.

    Marriage is supposed to represent a binding contract of love. In our society, we have given social and legal benefits to this "love" (or rather "partnership") contract. As long as the government and the law simultaneously grants these benefits to married couples and denies same-sex marriage then they (the government) is totally discriminatory. The government is supposed to uphold the rights of the people. Who are they to say who can love whom? What gives anyone the right to deny the expression of love between anyone?

    I totally agree with this:

    i think it's utter nonsense that it's even an issue...antiquated, uncivilized and borderline barbaric....who the hell are we or anyone else to say two people can't marry if they want to....ridiculous.

    (and yes, this topic has been done before)
    EDIT: As peguy points out.

    But if it's the law, don't they have to explain why? Religious traditionalism is a ridiculous excuse, in my opinion.

    There are too many close minded people out there.
