Well I think Gay Marriage is another persons choices, in the US everyones rights are being tooken away or demolished every single day, one thing after another is being chipped out of our rights and freedom. What happen to "We are the land of the free, and the home of the brave." like honestly the US is obviously not what it use to be, I find that US is doing everything we are against or what we believe in, which has honestly gave me the thought of leaving the US, at the same time I hope for some better changes.
Everyone has the right to be or do whatever they feel, most things anyways. You can respond how you like there is no punt intended in this response, just my opinion and thought I'd share it to you guys
The issue with it that it's not natural. Humans are animals and you don't see two male cats enjoying the bliss if sex. In the eyes off he lord, he supposedly created man and woman to reproduce. There is no way to reproduce if there are two of the same gender. It makeshift sense.
Do you honestly think that people choose to be in a minority. Also the whole "it's not natural" argument has been debunked many times. Homosexuality occurs in nature all the time, you can see it even in primates. Reproduction is irrelevant in the argument over marriage. Many married couples never have children, some are sterile and some just choose not to. If we used reproduction as a requirement for marriage, should we revoke marriage licences from 50 year olds and up? I am pretty certain that most people 50 years and older do not reproduce(as most women cannot conceive after age 40(they start getting checked at age 36)). Also, religion is not a valid argument in this discussion either.
- Marriage is not a religious institution it is one of government and has been around since before religion(it was essentially a property contract, the definition of marriage has changed many times throughout history)
- The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States clearly states that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" This means that the government cannot pass laws based on a religion(thus establishing it) and secondly it cannot pass laws that prohibit the free exercise of religion, which means by passing laws based on one religion you are infringing upon other people's freedom of religion(or freedom from it)
- There is also the 14th Amendment to consider. The first clause clearly states that "No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."This means that the government must treat all citizens equally under the law. By not recognizing gay couples and not allowing them to marry, the government is not treating them equally to straight couples.
- The 9th Amendment states "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people." This means that other people are not allowed to infringe upon your rights and it also means that you have rights other than what are listed in the Constitution, such as the right to marry or the right to privacy(see Roe V. Wade for an example of the right to privacy)
Yeah, Ryan, I just woke up today and I decided that I was going to be Black. Oh wait a second, I am white, I can't just decide to be black. The idea that it is a choice is so ludicrous and irrelevant. Gays do not choose to be gay. Straights do not choose to be straight. Bisexuals do not choose to be bisexual.

Let gay men marry gay men because else they marry women because they like the same things which makes us stuck with nothing.
Oh and also the "motto" of United states is
so wai cant gay men havew FREEDOM?!
I honestly don't care whether it's allowed or not. I'm not religious. I'll never be a priest nor will I ever be gay. I'll probably never even experience a gay marriage.
