    Not really. If "support" means having and wearing rainbow materials or having a rainbow plastered on my facebook profile or face, then no. This was very common when it was get legalized in the USA.

    I never really cared for gay marriage. If it never gotten legalized, it wouldn't bother me. Gay marriage was not something I cared to get legalized or put "support" for. It does not matter to me if a same sex couple get married in my state. I'm not the type of person who does fist pumps in the air over gay marriage or tweets #lovewins. If a same sex couple gets marries I don't really consider it a milestone or "progress" for the Western society. Its good for the person who got married but its nether a positive or negative thing for me.

    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.

    So, you'd say the same about black people, women, "witches" (in certain areas) and whatnot.

    Your view is clearly based on your lack of education. Clearly.

    Don't compare being black to being gay. I'm not even black and that offends me. Gays and feminists need to stop trying to steal black peoples civil movement ! Were you enslaved ? No. So cut the crap.

    & for those "tolerant" people talking about love. Practice what you preach, you can't call people "pieces of ****" because they don't agree with you and then think you're a tolerant, lovely person.

    Steal? No.

    It's called Liberation Theology, and it's everywhere from Black Lives Matters to gay Muslims asserting LGBT positive interpretations within the Qur'an.

    And do remember, oppression of minorities is enslavement. Restricting their human rights and trying to stop them from having a voice.

    But Black lives matter actually in some ways makes sense , a positive interpretation of gay stuff in the Quran ... Not so much. The only people who can find a positive interpretation in something that is so explicit is someone desperate to make themselves feel better by supposing unlikely and incredibly tenuous interpretations.

    No. Enslavement is enslavement. These people were fed **** and burnt alive, watched their babies be fed to alligators, how dare you suggest that this is the same as not having a "voice". Seriously ? Liberals need to read a history book every now and again. "Restricting their human rights" , blacks didn't even have any human rights to restrict.

    I feel so sorry for black people, they have to live in a world that still continues to minimise the history of their suffering and compare it to LGBT 😐 ITS NOT THE SAME.

    Yes, I do.

    I never used to - I didn't think it was necessary because we had civil partnerships. However, there are a lot of financial and legal benefits we would only get through marriage and therefore, we deserve them. Marriage goes beyond religion now. I do think, though, that churches or whatever, should have the right to turn down any couple seeking to be wed by them.

    There is nothing fanatical about defending traditional marriage.

    I'm not religious but I think it's wrong. Why change a system that has operated successfully for hundreds of years just because of a small minority?
    Tradition is not really an argument. Just because it has existed one way for a certain period of time, that doesn't meant it shouldn't adjust in accordance with society.

    There's pretty obvious hints as to how Adam and Eve isn't even factually true.

    This is literally such a poor argument. Do you even know what you're saying? And "successfully" is a laughable interpretation.

    If you are going to suggest that we do way with tradition to keep up with social trends, then I presume you are in favour of polygamous marriages and humans marrying their pets?

    Hardly comparable with homosexual marriages.

    Demand for gay marriage has grown in the same way that demand for polygamous and animal-human marriage will do in the future.

    You're guessing that. There's no propf for it. And that still does not validate a claim that they are the same.
