Why dose it matter who loves who?

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??

  • Because God didn't make women and men to please the same sex sexually---man did that when they made strap on's and gay porn. God didn't create and of those things.

  • Cause some people just got to get their panties in a bunch at the thought of somebody having sex other than male to female, missionary position, in bed in the dark!

  • 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.

  • "but seriously it does effect traditional marriage in ways some just do not see it that way. "

    How does it affect traditional marriage? No one has ever answered that question sufficiently. I'd like to understand the reasoning.

  • god made adam and eve not adam and steve.

    and YES it does affect traditional marriage... marriage back in the day (doesnt seem so much anymore) was a big religious thing... it allows a man and woman to have sex and have babies without it being a sin....

  • It apparently doesnt matter who loves WHOM. It matters who marries whom.
