I really don't care what they do.  I had a strict upbringing, which seemed to involve a lot of judgment of other people.  I don't believe for a minute that someone wakes up one morning and decides to be gay.

I am opposed to gay marriage.  To me marriage is between a man and a woman.  I also have friends that are gay.. I don't agree with their lifestyle but I don't hate them either.  I love them and I pray for them!

6,000 years or 4.54 billion years?

Quick bump.... just curious...  Does anyone that knows the Earth is more than 6,000 years old have an argument against same sex marriage?

I have a friend who can't wrap her mind around the earth being older than 6000 years, but has no problem with same sex marriage.

I, on the other hand, totally accept the earth being way older, but am not a proponent of same sex marriage.

Two separate issues that don't necessarily connect.

I think he's just wondering if you either don't like same-sex marriage due to religious ideals or just because you don't like the concept.

For me, personally, it's not about religious ideals, or the stuff that's being presented as 'ideals.' The same person who said 'God created Adam an Eve, not Adam and Steve,' also said, 'We should just send the CIA to take him out,' calling for the assassination of the leader of Venezuela, because Chavez wouldn't sell his country's oil to the US.

Not a religious person, or a religion, I would want to emulate. About anything.

As for same sex marriage, I'm not actively against it, I'm just not totally for it, if that makes sense.

Goes back to "Not my life. Not my business."

Lazy, apathetic response.   It's akin to someone turning a blind eye to a black person not being served at a diner.

Sorry I don't live up to your expectations. Nor do I need to.

I don't judge because it is not my place to judge. that is God's place. So I accept them because you don't know what caused them to do that decision.

What makes you not care about the rights of people who have been illogically and irrationally persecuted for decades/centuries? This group does not have the same rights that you and I take for granted. It's an injustice caused by silly and unintelligent laws in this day and age and (imo) everyone with an ounce of brain power and moral sense should at least support their human rights. In no way am I saying "go to rallies!" or any of that stuff-- I just think your opinion should be a little more supportive of this particular minority since you aren't barred from it like the religious zealots.

...And in no way am I saying you need to adhere to my same opinion. It's just a logical suggestion!

   Interesting debate!
   I am a individual who is open to anyone's preference, I myself believe that marriage should be between a man and woman, But one's who choose to fall in love with the same gender as they are doesn't bother me at all. My cousin happens to be gay, and is looking to getting married. IT is not my job to past judgement on any individual but myself.. :heart:

There's no reason to be against it.
I just don't understand how people can be for war and kill other humans but be against two humans of the same sex loving each other.
The more people who say no, the more opposition that will be received.
Being gay is becoming a norm and soon so will gay marriage.

I don't necessarily agree or even understand what makes gay people, but I do think we all should be given the exact benefits regardless of our sexual preference.  Why should two people who love each other be denied a marriage, no matter what their sexual preference is.  I know a few gay couples who have been together over 20 years, but in my state are not allowed to marry.  Also, if one is in the hospital their partner has no rights to their love one, how can you say that is right?  Let them alone and let them marry, it's not our business or right to judge anyone.

I believe that marriage is a bond between to people who love each other and promise to love, honor and all that other good stuff be it a man and woman or woman and woman or man and man it is a privilege that should be extended to those who promise to honor those vows.

Besides I was taught that only God can judge you no human has that power.
