Gay Marriage is Constitutional

I think the resounding message behind our Constitution is equal rights for all (men and women), and since the Constitution includes what we loosely regard as "separation of church and state," religion should have no bearing on the rights of gay people to be married.

yes i think it should be legal, the government should have no say who you can and cannot marry.

Love is love, not gender.

You can't help who you're attracted to.

Over 50% of straight marriages end in divorce. If gay people want to be as miserabe as straight married couple are, I say we let them!

I say let them do what they do. If you are a Christan like me and believe everything the Lord says than you would let God handle it and not worry about what other poeple are doing. Live you own life.

I think that it's ridiculous, the fact that gay or lesbian people aren't allowed to get married. Yes, I understand that religious people may highly justify against this because it's not how the Bible said the love world should play out, but things can change, obviously.
Let's put this into my own shoes; let's say that the Bible says Adam fell in love with Adam, not Eve, therefore, God says that everyone shall be gay. Now in the modern world, I (a straight person) would be discriminated against and if I dated the opposite gender, people would think I'm weird...ya know, that wouldn't be the greatest life, considering it's almost impossible for a tiny percentage of the population to fight against the whole government!
I'm a 15 year-old girl writing this, and I at least partially understand the rights of gay marriage, but the government doesn't give a damn. It's just stupid!

The government does NOT have the right to tell what they can't do unless its going to harm another person and gay marriage really harms no one

"Marriage is the basic building block to society and if gay men get married, that threatens my marriage immediately because I only got married as a taunt toward gay men because they couldn't. “ - Stephen Colbert

(This post is a joke, a quote from Stephen Colbert. As there are votes for “Gay Marriage is not Constitutional” but no arguments, I have to put down something Idiotic for them)
