I believe that everyone has the right to be happy, now why should gays be left out? I've got a couple of gay friends and i've seen how they love each other. Now, in california, gays can get married, now's their chance! What about you guys, are you pro or anti?

I am all for gays having the opportunity to get married. There are couples that have been together for decades and don't have the rights to community property, life insurance or other rights that are given to straight couples. I think it's a riot that the "Christian" people and the others that are protesting haven't stopped to think about the situation. Especially for the Christians. The Bible states that "he who is without sin should cast the first stone". UHHHH, If the Christians are casting stones because they are without sin, they actually are committing a sin because they are hurting a fellow human being. This applies to their anti gay marriage campaign too. Why not just let the people alone and mind their own business?

well said and amen to that. this is another instance (imo) where religion has gotten in the way and interfered. i believe it is not our place to judge. it's a free world and God gave us free will, the freedom to choose right from wrong.

I had the great joy and pleasure to congratulate a couple of gentlemen that were getting married at our local clerk/recorders office yesterday. It was so great to me that they were finally, after 10 years, were able to get married. I still get chills up and down my spine that they were finally able to pursue their dream. The joy on the gentleman's faces was so beautiful...unfortunately I wasn't able to remain to watch them exchange their rings.
