ok i am straight, and i could careless if two guys or women get married. who are they hurting for real. people are making a big fuss over this subject all over. and to me ok it's like this is so little why worry about it. to me we have so many other imporant things we need to be worry about then allow this gay marriage comsume our time in our goverment and church. it's like WHO CARE? to me we have families loosing thier homes, jobs, and people going without food, or elders without meds. we have kids that are being abuse or kill. why not consume our time with these more important issues then if two guys want to call each other husband and wife. or two girls. like who care. they arent hurting anyone else. leave them alone and let get back to more imporant crap. do you really care about gay marriage ? if so is it really going to hurt you for real ?

This was my response to another discussion and yet I got bashed as well as defended. I will not change my views on this subject for anybody. If you want to act out your gay tendencies, go right ahead. I just don't want or need to hear about it. I'm not going around telling everybody that I'm straight so why do I need to hear that you're gay? You are what you are.... SO WHAT?!! I don't have to answer to God, you or they do. I'm not here to judge but to accept and love everybody regardless of what they practice. I just don't need to know. PERIOD! Now if that's offensive, so be it. It was not intended to be but, if it is SO BE IT!

Hi cats...you know that I think the world of you so take this in the right way...ok? I have a very close friend...couple of them actually...that are gay. I think the reason that they fight so hard for their rights and to be accepted is because they are so very discriminated against. They are defensive because they have been so very shunned. I know what you are saying here but I do kind of see their side of it.

Oh I completely understand what you're saying. I do. It's just that if they want to be who or what they are, that's fine. I don't care. I just know that I have to answer to God for my own sins, regardless of what they are and they are no different. I'm here to do what God has asked of us, to love one another and not judge. I'm not perfect by any means but that I don't need to know that they're gay any more than I need to know that some one else is straight. They are what they are and I'm not here to judge them. I just don't want to hear it. If gays need to fight for what ever right, so be it, fight the fight but to scream out I'm gay, I feel is wrong because we straight people aren't doing so so why are gays shoving what they do in my face? Now if the roles were reversed, they'd get tired of hearing us holler that we're straight. What goes on behind closed doors is THEIR business, not mine. I hope that makes more sense.

I think that more and more people these days are coming to grips with it. It does not bother me in any way shape or form. Everyone wants love, happiness, and freedom of choice. To each their own.

I am with you on this syankee. I have a very good friend that is gay. He is a very moral, kind, responsible person and an asset to the community. Most don't even realize that he is gay and I wonder if they'd change their stance if they did know. He has a partner whom he is madly in love with and wants to marry in the future. I really don't have a problem at all with it. Why would I? He getting married in no way compromises any aspect of my life....it couldn't. I get people have religious views...all that. Still...does he getting married compromise their religion? These people are fighting to get married....they are serious...they deserve to be allowed the rights that hetrosexual couples receive.

Amen! Government has more important things to worry about, and I'll say this: people seriously need to mind their own backyards before telling other people what to do in theirs. I could not possibly care less if gay people get married or "live in sin." NOMB, ya know?

Okay... "NOMB" an abbreviation for what? Is it "None Of My business?" The reason you should care is that we have what should be unconstitutional religious laws on the books.

I realize that. I'm an advocate of the Constitution and our civil rights. It's none of my business what consenting adults do, thus I don't care what they do. Is that clearer?

People shold so whatever they want. I think the problem is some people grow up in a small town or really religious background and really don't give people a chance. How does it really affect your life if two ment got married or two women got married? It doesn't. You are still going to sleep everynight and wake up in the morning like everyday and nothing happens to you. People who are so close minded are the ones who makes it so difficult and starts all these debates about dumb stuff.

It is soooo hard to be tolerant of intolerant people. Right?

I agree. Love is a good thing and who cares who you give your love to. People are so brainwashed by their religions that they do not realize that God loves us all, made us all and does not care, either!! If they spent more time worrying about important things that DO hurt others, the world would be better.

Yes, I did misunderstand and I apologize. I just feel then, as you, that people put too much of their concern in other people's lives and choices. No harm, no foul!! LOL

I'm with you. I don't care what other people do or how they choose to live their lives. I think there are a lot of other things that need to be addressed and they are all what you have mentioned.

i would not care if some people do that too but still i believe that it is not right any more. we should not consider them any more as normal. i think they are already accepted socially to live together. they don't have to show off their love by marrying.

That's fine with me as long as they understand and didnt hurt anyone.. as long as they love each other and take good care of each other.. rather that having a partner in life and end up like living in hell!

Not really, i do not really care if 2 Gays are marrying. I will only think how our society is forgetting its values and culture. The erosion of religious values and the downfall of humanity.

People should do what they beleive is right. I don't have a problem with that. And you are right, there are so many things to worry about. Things that need to be fixed. Take care, have a nice day!
