Honestly? This ******** is because of religion.
Not to pull the atheist card here, but religion truly is holding everyone back.
So many people are afraid to do new things because of their religion that if they did, we might be more progressed than we are now.
I'm not singling any certain religion out, but really, ever hear of "separate church and stats"? All these politicians are voting on **** because of their religions views and they shouldn't be, because not everyone aligns with the same religion.

TL;DR? religion is holding back social and economical progress and is the main reason why gays cannot get married in today's society.

The problem here is that we need to find a way to fix this that will make everyone (or as many as possible) happy. People want gays to have the same benefits and legal status as married couples, and people also want to keep the definition of marriage the same.

So perhaps we could remove government recognition of marriage altogether; We'd use a different term, it'd apply to everyone, and would treat everyone equally under the law. Marriage could then be a term/title of a purely religious nature (it'd have no legal benefits/recognition).

The only thing I really care about in this whole issue is for people to come together and be reasonable. It's time to end the "us vs. them" mentality.

Marriage is pointless. It was originally instated as a business deal between wealthy families - often involving slave trade and whatnot. Peasants never got married as there was nothing in it for them. To say marriage is love-based is laughable.

On a further note, if you need to make it "official" with paper and lawyers, you never loved each other in the first place.

Marriage is a union between a Man and a Woman, and so it should be. On the other hand everyone has the right to love what or who ever he wants.I propose: give the homosexuals some form of union that resembles marriage with all its rights and duties, but is not called that way, Idk "partnership bond" or whatever. That way both sides are happy and we can all watch funny cat pictures on FJ again.

That argument makes me think of the whole "separate but equal" thing back when there was segregation.

The whole problem with it is that marriage is religious in origin and in that same religion it's considered wrong to be gay, so in christian eyes it's blasphemous against their religion.

But marriage has long evolved from being only a religious ceremony, and is more of a common staple of modern society. But even though we're promised separation of state and church most of the people in charge of things are religious and have religious views, often threatening equal human rights.

Just give it a few more years, gay marriage will be legal in every state soon enough. Remember when black people weren't allowed in the same bathrooms as white people? Remember when women couldn't vote? Human rights change for the better over time.

May I ask, can't gay people get a civil union? What's the different between than and actual marriage? Just curious, that's it.

I like gay people, they're nice.

But I must share with you how I feel Bronies are such an embarrassment to the LGBT community.

Honestly, there's no logical reason homosexuality should exist, it's only found in essentially anti-evolutionary situations.
1) A DNA accident in the womb cause unnecessary levels of the wrong hormones
2) Giving up on women
3) Believing that their curiosity stage in adolescence is "who they are"
and maybe a few other points.
If there was a god, he wouldn't have any reason to make that DNA accident a possibility, though this is rethinking the entire situation of the human race, still.
Bi-curiosity? Reasonable. But homosexuality is only accepted because it happens.

I don't get why people would be upset about this. If someone needs a place to park and I'm not using my driveway, they can sure as hell use it. Better than taking up the ******* street. It's just logical. There's a space designed for a car to be parked and area on the street designed to be driven - not parked - on. It just makes sense to use the driveway that is not currently in use.

I'm pro-straight marriage. I'm also pro-opinion. If someone wants to dislike gay marriage, they can. Honestly, as someone who has been in school around about 30-40 gays, I can tell you all first hand that all but two are attention whores or can't get a relationship with someone of the opposite gender, so they say they're gay, hold hands with some other "gay" person and yell at anyone who isn't gay. To those two, and actual gay people everywhere: good on you. For example: NPH is gay, but Perez Hilton is a massive flaming faggot who would best service humanity by being dead.
But seriously, if you want to be gay, be gay. If you think you're equal, and deserve equal rights, then act like it and quit parading around.
DISCLAIMER: EXAGGERATIONS
What if I ran around the streets screaming like Duke Nukem and slapping every girl I see on the ass because it's my right as a straight male to do so?
"FASCIST PIG!"
"MISOGYNIST!"
But if it's done for homosexuality:
"That's ok I guess, he/she's just expressing his right to love a person of the same gender."
Hooray for straight people. Hooray for actual gay people. Just quit your bitchin' and the problem will solve itself.
Rant over, and thank you for your time.
