Good grief! What kind of rights are these gay people going to go for next? The right to molest children?

Most likely the right to have pasta parties or the right to wear shoes and socks!

As it goes against my religious beliefs to support gay marriage, I cannot approve. But, I do think that people have the right to love,support and be legally-responsible for whomever they consider their significant other. The most important part of all this is couples, gay or straight, taking responsibility for their life-choices. So, I am going to presume that if gay marriage is allowed in our legal system that gay divorce will be as well. So that just means that we will have more children of divorce that are being shuffled from one house to another. Why would we want that? Straight people can't do marriage right. Why do gay people think they'll do a better job? Marriage takes work, compromise and sometimes, swallowing your pride for the sake of the children you've created. Good luck on this issue, it's a slippery slope we are all on.

I haven't hear any GLBT people state that they will do a better job.

Nobody needs you approval.

Diversity is good for the world.

"Straight people can't do marriage right. Why do gay people think they'll do a better job?"

maja7, this is your reasoning for denying homosexuals to marry? I can apply this reasoning to: no mixed racial marriages; Germans should not marry Italians (because they can't get it right) and on & on.

And,Edward, "gay people going to go for next? The right to molest children?" Using your reasoning, then men should have denied the right for women to vote. Next thing ya know, their running for Governor of Arizona (Jan Brewer), or Hawaii (Linda Lingle), or Connecticut (M. Jodi Rell) OR Alaska (you betcha).

The homosexuals are asking for the same rights as us straight people.
