Many people of the Christian faith believe gay marriage is wrong because God "created" marriage and he meant it to be between one man and one woman. My question is, what about those who are not of the Christian faith? Should they not be allowed to get married because marriage has its "roots" in religion? Or is it the just one man one woman thing?Answer Question

I am a Christian, and I personally don't care, it's none of my business if two gay people want to be just as stressed out as the rest of us! Why shouldn't gay people have the same rights as the rest of us, honestly in this day and age to still be pondering this issue is just ridiculous. There was opposition to abolishing slavery, to giving women the right to vote and heck, we women still aren't out of the woods yet! People of color are still coming face to face with racism, look at the elections. It disgusts me to no end when people hide behind religion to enforce their prejudices. If gay people want to get married , leave them be, let them love each other, we should be encouraging acts of love instead of being so ready for confrontation at each turn!

At this point in our world, I honestly think God has bigger fish to fry than two people who LOVE each other getting married, regardless of sex. And while "marriage" may be religious in nature, or history, it does have LEGAL implications that should not be denied to two people. Yes they can have a civil ceremony declaring their love, but you can't argue that its "just as good" or "the same" and a real marriage with a certificate. As my husband's wife I have the right to certain things and believe everyone should have that same privilege.
