    If you believe homosexuality is wrong then only get married to the opposite sex. Why take away someones else's right?
    For example, religious people think that adultery is wrong. So religious people only have sex after marriage. FINE. However people that are maybe not religious have sex before marriage and people tolerate it. So should we now criminalize adultery?

    Gay marriage does not affect anyone.
    I am Christian myself however I dont give a **** if two men or two women wanna ****

    I'm a Muslim but I'm not again gay marriage. In fact, I support LTGB rights. After all, its a matter of human rights.

    If you're not gonna stick by the laws of traditional marriage and the spirituality and oneness etc it's about why call it "marriage"

    Why can't it just be civil partnership. You can be together and harmony and have a right to do so; and live like that it's still a union but don't call it marriage when you can't even naturally procreate. Just imo.

    Because that's what they believe.

    The most confusing part of this whole situation is how you attack someone else's opinion.

    P.S I am not religious, couldn't care less for "Gay marriage", I'm just able to be unbiased clearly unlike most.

    Why people feel the need to attack religions' beleifs daily, I'll never understand.

    It's like attacking someone because they think they're going to win the lottery. It's a bloody opinion.

    A man and a woman get married. They try to procreate naturally. They can't. Can they still call their marriage a marriage?

    I'm a Christian and I think that everyone deserves to be happy. You're meant to love(doesn't have to be sexual) others and treat them as you'd like to be treated. If people are gay or straight and everything in between then that's great. That's their life and they deserve happiness, no matter who they love. Everyone's relationship with God, if they have one or believe in one, is their own and what they do with their lives is there's to decide.
    God is the only judge, in my opinion, so why should what others think stop people from living their lives?

    okay well Usually when entering a marriage the intentions are to procreate. If they can't then they can't by the "equipment " is there, might be just be some kind of malfunctioning with it.

    A vagina hole is literally( created to give birth and to be) the perfect place to accommodate a penis, if you really think up someone's butt is the NATURAL place for one to go then??? In the words of many many TSR Users "how is that in any way evolutionarily advantageous" it's not + also HIV is prevalent/high risk among gay men aka when penis is repeatedly put in someone's anus.

    People can chose what they do with their **** and where they put it and not only gay men have anal but the main thing I want to know is what does marriage mean to you? Cause if it's being together in Union etc then civil partnership would suffice would it not? but I wouldn't know why homosexual couples want to call in marriage so I would like opinions on what marriage means to them and why civil partnership isn't enough?

    Oh jeez what a stupid thing for you to say. I hope you're aware that "traditional marriage" isn't just what the CoE and CC have been shoving down people's throats for the past couple hundred years right, and that there's more history?

    Let's stick to traditional laws and call for more polygamy!

    I'm personally not in-favour of Gay Marriage at all. I see it as unnecessary. You cannot fight for the rights of one and stomp on those of another. Marriage is a religious ceremony. Homosexuality is condemned by the Bible and marriage is characterised by the union of One Man and One Woman. Churches should be able to stick to their original practises because they have a right to religious freedom.

    In calling it a civil partnership rather than a marriage, you're saying that their relationship is not as valid as a heterosexual couple's. It's lesser, and doesn't deserve to be called a 'marriage'.

    Do correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought marriage was supposed to be about love. And I see no difference between the love that two men can feel for each other, and the love between a man and a woman. And that love should be celebrated through marriage, a legally-binding union.

    Civil partnerships aren't sufficient, because they imply that homosexual relationships are less valid than heterosexual relationships.
