Good. I'm a Christian, but America should not be a theocracy. This is a good step. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs) 17:20, 7 April 2009
I'm not happy with the decision. If we are going to allow people of the same sex marry each other, then we might as well allow people to marry animals, polygamy, daughter and father, son and mother, and then simply declare ourselves as a nation without dignity. This, by the way, is a step toward the immoral future the Obama socialist are preparing for us. Wait a little longer, gays and gay marriage will be promoted in public schools, crimes on gays will be "hate crimes", affirmative action will be granted to gays, many pages on history books will discuss how gays "struggled" to get their rights, and being gay will be the "cool" thing to do. That doesn't sound good. We have to be less hypocritical. Marriage never applied to same-sex couple, and that's a fact that no matter how a legislature votes can be turned down. I hope they do something like they did in California because this country going nuts. --126.96.36.199 22:39, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
- Cut the hyperbole! This is not a slippery slope towards the end of Jebusland as you know it. Homosexuality is present in the animal kingdom, so it's perfectly natural that it be present among humans. Accepting that, allowing people who are 'wired that way' to live lives much like us heterosexuals, is perfectly reasonable, and rational. In a lot of ways, yes, they have had to fight for their rights, and been oppressed. America comes out quite well when you look at that on a global scale. At least they don't hang them like they supposedly do in Iran.
- And, as you should learn before you decide to go 'queer bashing' that crimes against gays are "hate crimes" if solely committed because they are gay. It's a big world out there, and oranges are not the only fruit. --Brian McNeil / talk 22:54, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
- The fact that you actually believe that there's a logical comparison in your argument of "same sex = animal marrying" indicates that you're going nuts, moreso than this country. Have you talked to your psychiatrist lately? 188.8.131.52 23:11, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
- The only ones who are "nuts" are those who pass such bans in the face of "all men are created equal" and other such equality clauses present in nearly every single state Constitution. How such contradictory language can exist in the same document is baffling to me, and goes against everything the country was founded on. --Resplendent (talk) 23:16, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
Let's hope california (of all states) is next to pull it's head out.
About TIME! I'm a Christan btw.--KDP3 (talk) 14:38, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
