    Nope
    For what reasons?

    (Original post by jake4198)
    Yes. And there's no excuse for being against it. Two loving people - happy, content and free - should not be excluded from society as atypical or immoral. Religious fanatics who oppose it shouldn't be instilling their religious oppression on other people.
    I don't think you should support things on the basis that they love each other, because I doubt that's the basis on which you decide many of your morals, making inconsistent reasoning.

    no I don't
    For what reasons?

    There is nothing fanatical about defending traditional marriage.
    Why appeal to tradition? Again, I say this because I doubt you use this consistently, making you also a hypocrite.

    Not really no. I think marriage should be between a man and a woman.
    For what reasons? Are you religious? (I need something to work with.)

    I don't oppose it but I don't necessarily support it.

    Traditional marriage?

    In Exodus 21:10, a man can marry an infinite amount of women without any limits to how many he can marry.

    In 2 Samuel 5:13; 1 Chronicles 3:1-9, 14:3, King David had six wives and numerous concubines.

    In 1 Kings 11:3, King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines.

    In 2 Chronicles 11:21, King Solomon's son Rehoboam had 18 wives and 60 concubines.

    In Deuteronomy 21:15 "If a man has two wives, and he loves one but not the other, and both bear him sons...."

    There's no such thing as "traditional marriage". Definitions of marriage have been changing since humans started to have more complex cultures and customs.

    To Hell with you and the so-called "traditional marriage". LGBTQ people should be able to marry and are able to marry, and that's how it'll stay. Period.

    I think that gay couples should absolutely be able to access the same legal arrangements as straight couples.

    Obviously churches and the like should not be obligated to perform the services.

    Of course.

    I support same-sex marriage because I myself am likely to want one when I am older, and I am invested into a relationship (being mostly attracted to men, the same sex.)

    I actually have principles, even if they act disadvantageous to me sometimes. Every time I compromise on my values, I would lose a part of myself, so I don't compromise.

    I'm pro-conscience; I think that people should be allowed to have same-sex marriages, but I don't think people in churches should be forced to perform the ceremony, to go against their conscience, especially so as they aren't necessary, and there are currently people willing to do this.

    I have adopted this view because I believe it;s a fair view, so why do you make this point?

    "pro-conscience" is the vocabulary to take away from this.

    Yes, accepting gays means treating them equal. They should have the same rights to enjoy and cherish a wedding day.
