Ok so i know this is all over the news and fb, pretty much everywhere. But i have a question. How can people argue gays and lesbians can not marry based on the religious reasons. Marriage should not be thought of like that as it is more of a legally binding contract. Because the last time i checked if u decided you did not want to be Christian and change to catholic you did not have to hire a lawyer and go to court, and sign paperwork to do so. You just go. Marriage is as i said a contract in which you have to seek legal assistance to get out of. Why have i not heard this argument. It makes rational sense. Now take note i am not saying religion has to be left out of the ceremony i am just sayin when considering who should marry why not look at it like that?

I know if is crazy for me to say this especially here. But it is my thought. As for my belief because some one is bound to ask i believe everyone should be able to marry. That is all. Please be gentle ..............

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

Marriage stopped being religious when the government got involved.

While I am Christain and believe marriage is between one man and one woman. However, marriage is a religious ceremony done by a Pastor/Preacher/ Priest/Rabbi etc.....

If a religious leader does not preform the ceremony, like a JP does the service, then it is a civil union not a marriage. 

So being Christian I believe marriage is for a man and a woman, but a civil union should not be limited to a certain lifestyle or sexual orientation.

The civil union part is a legal contract, and unless we outlaw homosexuality then we shouldn't be able to say who can enter that contract and who can't.

 Catholics are Christians....  If you believe Jesus is the Son of God, you are a Christian. With that being said, I think people should marry whom ever they'd like, its none of my business.

What is the need for a marriage license then if you're going to get "married" by a religious figure?

to also make it legal, the civil union part is  only legal and not religious, that's sorta my point, any 2 consenting adults should be able to get a marriage license, but not everyone can or should be expected to preform the ceremony

I agree. But I don't get why people keep thinking the government is somehow going to make churches marry a gay couple? They're not. And I'm sure most gay couples wouldn't want to be married min a church that was against them anyways.
