    I'm all for it. At the very least, give them the same rights that married couples have. Tax breaks and being able to visit in a hospital when only "family" is allowed. I'm pretty anti-marriage myself, but that doesn't give me the right to say other people can't do it. :P I'm also anti-children, and I don't think that legislation would go very far.

    Also, now that YourLocalJesus changed his name to 00011001 it is terribly confusing because I think he is 01101 the INTJ lesbian. But, then I see the views written about homosexuality and I know exactly which binary numbered user it is.

    He's the really long string.
    She's the really short string.
    And then we have that 8-digit binary member in the middle.

    CzeCze, you sound like the bat who swallowed the binary.

    Ohnoz! Who's gonna swallow me?

    I just hope it's not a homophobe. That might be awkward.

    That would definitely a bitter pill for a homophobe to swallow.

    Government should have stayed out of the marriage business, but it’s a tax revenue.
    To clarify I voted should not be given.

    I would have also voted no to a question of any marriage rights, my view of government given rights and God given rights. Government should be required to honor a reasonable contract between any two persons and no religion should be forced to accept a contract it believes would be against it faith.

    I thought part of the stipulation is that religions would not be required to accept it as a marriage within their church; the state and feds would simply accept it on a secular basis, as a "reasonable contract"; so I still don't understand your logic here. Nothing you said actually applies to same-sex marriage as it would be implemented.

    As far as other things go, the government tells people all the time what rights will be granted. If I have a religious belief that black or Hispanic people should not be allowed in the country and given citizenship, but the government does so anyway, I have no choice but to accept that. I might not have to accept them into my church, but the government will still accept them as citizens and grant the rights thereof.

    I personally don't think it matters if gay people wanna elope. America is built on freedom and separation of church and state. Not everyone in America is a christian, and I don't see why we should forbid it for religious reasons. I am a Christian but I also believe in allowing people to make their own choices. Just because I believe gay marriage is wrong for me doesn't give me the right to tell everyone else it is wrong. After all religion is very personal. And when it comes down to it how is being a homosexual worse than stealing a handbag, or being a drug dealer in the eyes of God? Its not. I'm not saying its justified I am just saying there is only one unforgivable sin, and it isn't homosexuality.
