Gay marriage – for better or for worse?
Last updated at 14:53, Tuesday, 06 March 2012
Marriage is the union of a woman and a man. Or possibly in future, a woman and a woman or a man and a man.
Have your say
I know its a novel idea, but I'd like the phrase 'Gay Marriage' to be changed to 'Marriage'. The fact that the two parties are homosexual should not be figured into it. If two people love each other, and want to make a commitment to stay together for the rest of their lives, gender should not be a figurative factor. If the Church, and Theists do not like gay marriage, then don't get gay married.I'm sure myself, Chad and many Atheists would not comment on situations like this if the Church in its many forms (Christianity, Catholicism, Muslim and Judea) would stop trying to force their beliefs onto people not of their religion. I have no problem with you worshipping your fairy-tale, as long as it doesn't intrude on the lives of others. Which the above article does.
i dont have a prob with gay marriage... they should be as miserable as the rest of us.....
Taking religion out of the argument, we must accept the need for a standard of morality. Where do we go next? People in incestuous relationships having the right ot get married in a church?
Gay people are welcome in our communities as friends, brothers, sisters, etc etc. but why do some have to keep poking away at the church and it's interpretation of a book written by an unknown author which may or may not be a great work of fiction?
By all means have your relationships blessed and embark on civil partnerships if you choose but leave the religious to their own devices as this current stance makes gay people look like they are just being provocative.
