If your rights were up for a vote by the people? How would you feel if a state told you that you couldn't marry the one you love, because it was illegal?

Laura970, and others who just don't get it--you are contradicting yourselves by saying that your god does not approve of gay marriage, and therefore it should be illegal. This is not a religious matter, it is a legal one. Sure, it's all well and good to say that if two people want to marry, they should go ahead and do it, whether or not it is legal. The point is, we want it to be legal. That is how the partners (who are just as committed to each other as you are to your own spouse) gain rights that are only granted to married couples. That is how they are able to be certain that the people who are most important to them will have visitation rights if they are hospitalized. That is how they are able to guarantee that they can leave their possessions to their loved ones when they die. These are legal rights that all married couples have, regardless of the state in which they live, and are recognized across state lines.
