    60% of states voted against it.

    Hey Drew, they already have the same rights under civil unions.

    You are very, very wrong.

    Whatever one’s personal feelings and interpretations, I think you USA folks have to consider separation of church and state in this issue.
    You really cannot use religious texts as justification for your legislative position on this matter.
    You are however welcome to use religious texts to decide your own personal position.
    (I am really not trying to be inflammatory, just pointing out your own framework. One of the things I really admire about the USA.)

    Many Americans interpret “religious freedom” to mean “the freedom to worship Jesus in one of several prescribed ways”.

    “Hey Drew, they already have the same rights under civil unions.”

    Not even close to being true. Not for health care proxy, not for inheritance, not for adoption just to name a few.

    and in case you’re trying to take us back to the last century and beyond the law of the land is

    separate but equal is neither separate nor equal.

    so your comment fails on all fronts.

    False. What is more, conservatives like You have opposed creation of a legal union that would grant those rights.

    “God says it’’s yucky” is about the only reason (and a pretty lame one) for opposition to gay marriage. Leviticus prohibits male homosexual actions (it says nothing about lesbians) but only as a means of distinguishing the Israelites from their non-Jewish neighbors in matters of intimate relations. I have no idea where so-called Christians get off with their anti-gay harangues; the behavioral (and food) laws of Leviticus don’t apply to them.

    Most christians pick-and-choose when it comes to the bible. Ignoring the all-liars-go-to-hell rule in Revelations is another common one.

    Not only that but ignoring how Jesus condemned hypocrisy and calling for the “sanctity of marriage” when evangelicals divorce at the same rate as non Christians is a wee bit hypocritical…

    The 14th Amendment to the Constitution says that all citizens have equal rights under the law. “My god thinks it’s yucky” is not an allowed exception.

    If homosexuals do not have the same rights as other people, that is a problem with the government’s corrupt laws. If the issue is really whether homosexuality is a sin, God has already settled that question. The Holy Bible is clear. God established marriage between a man and a woman. The word “marriage” has already been defined. There is nothing that homosexuals can do to change the fact that it is a sin. Even if the whole world agreed with the homosexuals, they would still be cursed by a God-given conscience that would tell them it is wrong.

    If homosexuals want some kind of union, don’t try and call it marriage. Also, if homosexuals were really in favor of equality, they would have to give up special privileges they already have.

    ^you’re correct about some of what you say. and not about others. My bible says that king Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines. but it doesn’t say homosexuality is a sin. my bible says that homosexuality is a ‘abomination’.

    big deal, you may say, but when it comes to the bible, I like to be precise, since it’s infallible. what’s the difference between an abomination and a sin? well, wearning mixed fabrics is considered an abomination. So while the word sounds pretty bad, it’s no worse than wearing wool pants and cotton socks. or a poly-cotton mix (though that might be a fashion faux pax).

    and finally let me ask you a question. what are the ’special privileges you claim homosexuals already have?

    @parkerfields

    I presume, based on the same “Holy Bible is clear” and “Even if the whole world agreed” that you abstain from eating shrimp, cutting the corners of your hair, and wearing clothes with two mixed kinds of fabrics. What? You don’t? Oh, I see, you pick and choose, like (literally) every single one of your co-religionists. So, it’s God’s word when you agree with it, and cultural-bound suggestions when you don’t, right? And, conveniently, it does not affect your lifestyle, but everyone else better tow the line, right?
    I hope it is becoming clearer why intelligent people in the modern era are giving iron-age religion such a hard time.
