Equal Rights: A spin on the average gay marriage debate.

First, say what 'side' you are on and then answer this question:


Would you be for marriage no longer being covered by the government? (meaning, there would be no more legal marriage...for anyone, regardless of sexual orientation; therefore making everyone 'equal')?

(I've always been curious about this.)

I just know there's something dark in me and I hide it. I certainly don't talk about it, but it's there always, this Dark Passenger. And when she's driving, I feel alive, half sick with the thrill of complete wrongness. I don't fight her, I don't want to. She's all I've got. Nothing else could love me, not even... especially not me. Or is that just a lie the Dark Passenger tells me?

Seriously...not a single person has ANYTHING to say about this...one of the most argued topics ON CM? I am amazed.

I am for gay marriage. I don't think its the governments place to say who can/can't get married.

im FOR gay marraige and no i dont support doing away with marriage in order to make everyone equal for the simple fact that its a ridiculous way to get equality when all u have to do is simply let adults marry whoever they want

I really don't care who gets married it's not a government choice it's a choice between 2 consenting adults over the age of 18.

So...you aren't for equality then? Just gay marriage?

Being that marriage was initially a religious ceremony, I don't think the government has any place even ordaining them, much less giving special privileges to those who are. If the government didn't do these things, then we would all be equal. Married, not married, gay, or not gay.

I believe that civil marriage is nothing more than 2 people forming a tiny corporation, they mix finances and have rights to each other. Whoever wants to do that should be able to and why does it matter to anyone?

Christian's believe that only God can make two people one and that this happens through the sacrement of marriage. They aren't being asked to offer the sacrement to gay couples so why do they care?
