Gay marriage will have no impact whatsoever on heterosexual communities, just as racial integration in the 60's had no negative impact on White (the majority) communities. It simply overturned an ugly, immoral attitude that upheld segregation. The same goes for legalizing gay marriage; it will grant the LGBT community a right that has been immorally denied to them.

You were born to like the opposite sex. You didn't decide to, you were born that way, just like homosexual people are. Their relationships should be cherished as much as a heterosexual relationship, and they are NOT abominations; so stop lying to yourself.

One of the major reasons that gay marriage is currently illegal is due to the religious interpretation that "homosexuals are sinners." Such a religious perspective should have no place in federal, legal matters in the United States. We live in a secular society that maintains secular views. The Ten Commandments do not define our legal system, so why does the religious argument "marriage is the union between a man and a woman" keep so many happy, gay couples from becoming legally married? Legalizing gay marriage will have no impact on religion and/or the religious view of others, just as religion should not have any impact on the issue of gay marriage.

In the 50's, interracial marriage was illegal. But now, modern society understands this to be an unjust law that denied equal rights to couples who loved each other. The issue of gay marriage is no different. Denying marriage to two individuals who love each other is to deny them a fundamental freedom.

The phrase "the pursuit of happiness" comes from The Declartion of Independence, not the Constitution. They are both completely different and The Declaration of Independence has absolutely no legal power or authority. So although I agree that everyone has the right to be happy, that's not quite a valid argument. Though I am 100% for gay marriage!

In New York, thousands of gay couples have already gotten married. Manhattan is expecting $9 million revenue during the first year that marriage was legalized. Sure, the economic boost is a plus... but the reality is that millions of gay partners already practice monogamous, loving relationships in the United States. The trouble is that they are not legally protected as married couples, even though their lifestyle mimics marriage! Gays already practice marriage in their homes, so what's wrong with granting the LGBT community the rights they deserve?

Whoever wrote this article was obviously uneducated. Please take the time when posting something on the internet to know all of the facts. Gay marriage cannot be and is not parallel whatsover to the Civil Rights Movement. You are born black. You are born white. You are born with red hair. You may think you are born with homosexuality, but the reality is that you just have the inclination to be homosexual and choose to act upon it. Many people have the inclination to hurt or even kill someone that they are so angry with. Do they act upon it? No. They know it is immorally wrong. Please, take the time to think about what you are saying before you say it. Being born gay is scientifically proven to NOT be a genetic trait. I ask that you please take this article down, for it is truly doing more harm by persuading people with false information.

A married man can't say he choose to fall for his wife because she was the 1 who captured his feelings same with same sex relationships they couldn't help he feel in love with that person it was just meant to be.

Gay couples are legally allowed to enter into a civil union partnership... but this is not nearly the same thing as marriage. Marriage licenses grant innumerable rights to married couples, rights that are not endowed to gay couples in civil unions. It is no excuse to deem that gay marriage is not necessary because "they already have civil unions... why do they want more?" The financial, medical, and social rights that are associated with marriage are unfortunately kept away from homosexual couples.

Legalizing gay marriage will help to establish a social norm that includes and respects homosexual lifestyles. Couples as well as individuals in the LGBT community will seem less "different" from heterosexual lifestyle, so straight couples and individuals will be more inclined to accept homosexual couples into their communities.

Most adoption agencies discriminate against gay couples and make it incredibly difficult for them to adopt children. Many agencies will only release children to "married" couples, therefore rejecting stable, loving, homosexual parents. By legalizing gay marriage across all states, adoption agencies will be forced to grant the same respect and rights to homosexual couples. There are over 500,000 children currently living without parents in the United States; gay marriage will increase the chances for thousands of foster children to gain loving parents and families.

What do you mean "unstable?" The most loving, caring, and accepting people you will ever meet are gay. They won't be brainwashed Christians, hopefully, and will be accepting of other children. Gay couples will be the most committed of all adopters, and after being forcibly kept apart, they for sure will have had enough time to decide they really do want it. Quit being an ignorant Christian zombie and love and let love.

It's hard to believe that in an era of unimaginable technological advancements, sexuality-based discrimination still exists. Hospitals cannot legally allow gay partners to visit their lovers or receive medical information about their condition without a blood relative present. This deprives partners essential medical rights and undermines the authenticity of their relationship. It leaves many partners unable to make important decisions. Legalizing gay marriage will allow gay couples hospital visitation rights and respect the validity of their marriage by letting them make medical decisions on behalf of their spouses.

Whoever you are "anonymous coward" YOU are obviously uneducated. YOU should please take YOUR time getting facts before posting things on the internet. This DOES have to do with the Civil Rights Movement and if you had any common sense you would realize that. You CAN be born homosexual. Just because the Bible says that being gay is a sin doesn't make it immorally wrong. Everyone sins and God doesn't look at any of our sins greater than the other. Who says that being born gay is a genetic trait? Just because you are born a certain way doen't mean that your parents had to pass that down. People develop into their our selves and that's what makes us all such beautiful creations. Oh, and you know how you said that gay marriage has NOTHING to do with the Civil rights Movement... well I think you are completely wrong because at first it was womans' rights and it took years for us to be able to vote, then it was racial discrimination, now it's discrimination against sexual orientation. IT'S ALL THE SAME! Now this is all coming from a 14 year old 8th grader who is of way higher intelligence than you. I know what I believe and I know what is right and I just wish that you could see to that we are all children of the Lord, Our Father who loves us ALL equally. NO MATTER what we do, or HOW we sin, if we maintain a relationship with Him, He will love us as we love Him. "To gain entrence through the gates of heaven we must have the blissful innocence of a child."

The majority of teenage suicides today are being committed because the child was bullied in school as a result of his/her sexual orientation. The same acceptance that will come about due to legalizing gay marriage will show teens that homosexuality is accepted and respected in society. We need to explain to younger generations that being different (in any aspect of our lives) is not a social disability, so that they will never feel the need to take their own lives because they are gay.
