1. Homosexual behavior has been observed in over 1500 species. The argument that it is something "not natural" is false.
2. Marriage is a recognized human right. Article 16 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights guarantees "men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion... the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution." We live in a secular society upholding secular views, that means separation of church and state. In the eyes of the law, marriage is for everyone whomever they want to marry.
3. Procreation is not the sole objective of marriage. There are infertile couples, couples who don't wish to have kids, etc. They have the right to marry, why shouldn't queer people?
4. It's a very discriminatory concept. Not only discriminates sexual-orientation but it discriminates based on sex. Consider Anne, Alicia and Tom. Anne can marry Tom, but can't marry Alicia. So Tom can do one thing (marry Anne) that Alicia can't (marry Anne) because she's a woman.
5. The list of arguments is infinite really...

Marriage is a commitment , a promise of future love and it can be the union of duo of same sex and i think as far as the couple is feeling comfortable in company of each other there is no question of it being legitimate or not

I believe it should be permitted as everyone should have the right to have different sexual preferences.

It doesn't have to be perfect when you're in love, because once you're in love with someone they seem perfect to you, disregarding their gender, age, height, weight and etc. Love is love. There are no questions about how you feel because what you feel for someone should never make you feel guilty for feeling the things you feel (if that last sentence made any sense at all). But anyways love shouldn't have standards regarding gender, age, height and all that.

i think the whole basis of your judgement is wrong. the whole situation you are talking about is hypothetical. but in order to "convince you" lets just take your case. the ideal couple. a guy and a girl. now think a lil out of the box. we have heard opposites attract right? so this guy and this girl love each other because they have opposite characters. BUT another couple love each other too. the only diff is that they have much similar characteristics. so we see that its not every time " opposites attract" . similarly on this base.. USUALLY a guy likes a girl. BUT there are exceptions. many a time people of the same sex like each other. WHY is the first example to the exception acceptable but the second one not?

there are million debates on this all over the internet. This is a topic that im very strong on. Im straight but i believe that everyone should do whatever they please. If someone doesnt want to marry someone of the same gender they dont have to. But that doesnt mean that you can stop someone else. Leave the it isnt natural bullsh*t. Your statement doesnt change the fact that there are gays. There have been homosexuals from the beginning of time but the reason why it looks like there are more now its because we are a more open minded community and people are finally admitting. SO STOP LIVING IN THE PAST! this is the 21 st century. The fact that someone is getting married to someone of the same gender has absolutely no affect on your life but if you stop this from happening the other person will live in misery for the rest of their life because you dont find it natural. stop acting as if they have insulted your great ancestors and take a chill pill.

Yes, it can be allowed and I'll prove that to you right now.

1. Define the word "natural". If by natural, you mean something that occurs in nature, then homosexuality is natural. Hundreds of other species display homosexual behavior. About ten percent of rams only mate with other rams, for example.

2. If all men were gay, then I guess the remaining women would have to satisfy themselves. Plenty of men and women do this already. It's called masturbation.

3. Sperm donors do this already. A woman who can't conceive a child with her husband, for example, could willingly be inseminated by a sperm donor's sperm. Isn't that exactly the situation you described?

4. Humanity would certainly not go extinct for the reason I listed above.

5. Who is mother earth? And how do you know what she's saying? Do you hear an audible voice?

6. Actually male dogs do copulate, or at least attempt to copulate, with other male dogs quite often. Dogs do this to assert dominance.

7. Why is it not right? Elaborate...

I don't understand how you can make such ignorant statements and then end your pargagraph with "Peace! much love!" No, people who love one another don't have thoughts like you. And do I need to even comment on the "whole world mans go gay" statement? Who's to say what is and what isn't natural and get into anyone else's business but their own.

Sorry, but I thought I'd inject a different viewpoint here- what gives the government the right to make that decision at all? At least in the United States, the government is supposed to be limited to certain things which they are permitted to control. The right to govern marriage in any way is not anywhere on that list.

I will NEVER advocate for sin! If you are a person who likes the sin of homosexuality or it you are a supporter of them- do you believe that thieves should be respected and tolerated as if they were good? If not, why not? It is wrong because God said so. I stand with the Lord. Where do you stand?

I love a person enough to warn them about sin, so they will not be cast into hell. People who claim they love people who are sinning, to the point that they are silent about sin, are liars!
