Our legislature just passed a measure to not recognize gay marriage in our state
(Wyoming) I just don't understand why it matters? I have been happily married to my husband for almost five years. Having a same sex couple living in my state also married is NOT going to effect me any! Why it is these necons have to stick their noises into everyone else's business??

Honestly, I have no idea why most people are so opposed. None of the arguments against make any sense. Gay marriage does not threaten the "sanctity" of hetero marriage. The "sanctity" of hetero marriage went out the door a long time ago. Isn't the divorce rate hovering around 50%? Homosexual behavior does occur in nature, so that shoots down the "It's not natural" theory. The separation of church and state SHOULD take care of the "it's a sin" crowd. It's a simple civil rights issue and sooner or later the Supreme Court will have to find these laws banning gay marriage unconstitutional, just as they found the inter-racial marriage laws unconstitutional "The freedom to marry has long been recognized as one of the vital personal rights essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men. Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival" Loving v. Virginia, 1967.
