    Ah, this blog sums up what I think.
    The fact is, many people - probably the majority - who are against gay marriage are against it because of their religion. The Bible forbids it, so it cuts into people's lives to serve as one of their beliefs.
    I'm all for gay marriage. It shouldn't matter what your sexuality is to restrict yourself to marry someone. I also find it sad that - and I mean this with as little offense as possible - that people who oppose gay marriage because of their religion let that religion completely construct - or destruct - their lives. It's these little things that make them unable to think for themselves past the boundaries of religion.
    And then, there are those who believe in a religion that condemns gay marriage, but still support it anyway. I do respect those people, because they are not letting their religions' statements push past their own.
    That's what I believe, really, and I do agree with this blog 100%. Besides the fact of religion, I can't see one reason why people don't support gay marriage, or are homophobic in general.

    I fully support marriage equality and I'm an active fighter for its legalization. Really, there is no good enough or logical reason for someone to be against marriage equality. Most people give religious reasons but that's not good enough at all, because no one should be forced to follow another person's religion. I think a lot of anti-gay religious people fail to understand that little tidbit that they have no right or reason to shove their religion onto another person.

    I personally am in support of marriage equality because I believe in equal rights. By denying same-sex couples the ability to legally marry, they have been denied many of the rights and benefits heterosexuals are given. Homosexuals are second-class citizens under these laws, inferior to heterosexuals. It may vary by country but I know here in the U.S, we are actively denying about 1,500 federal rights to same-sex couples. It's basic civil rights. No one deserves to have their civil rights taken from them and that is exactly what banning same-sex marriage does. Banning same-sex marriage takes away people's rights, benefits, dignity, and respect. Being a lesbian probably also has a lot to do with my support for marriage equality.

    I think people should be able to marry whoever they choose whether they are the same sex or not. Love is love no matter who it is.

    very well said. I apologize that I played into society's way and called it 'gay' marriage. Thank you very much for pointing that out to me and thank you for your opinion.

    I'm going to use this blog as an example. I'm not going to bash you or anything, but just to prove a point...

    Okay, so, I'm all for marriage between same sex couples(as I am Bisexual), but I don't see why we have to call it 'gay' marriage. In my opinion, marriage should just be marriage. Marriage, to me, is two people making their love "official", so why is it when a same sex couple get married, it has to be called 'gay' marriage? I don't think that's right, and it all just confuses me. We should just call it marriage, because that's what it is. Regardless of who it is getting married. Whether that be a man/woman, man/man, or woman/woman.
