The problem here is that we need to find a way to fix this that will make everyone (or as many as possible) happy. People want gays to have the same benefits and legal status as married couples, and people also want to keep the definition of marriage the same.

So perhaps we could remove government recognition of marriage altogether; We'd use a different term, it'd apply to everyone, and would treat everyone equally under the law. Marriage could then be a term/title of a purely religious nature (it'd have no legal benefits/recognition).

The only thing I really care about in this whole issue is for people to come together and be reasonable. It's time to end the "us vs. them" mentality.

Marriage is pointless. It was originally instated as a business deal between wealthy families - often involving slave trade and whatnot. Peasants never got married as there was nothing in it for them. To say marriage is love-based is laughable.

On a further note, if you need to make it "official" with paper and lawyers, you never loved each other in the first place.

But religion and law are separate, so why does that matter?

but what you don't get is that they actually aren't.
They are SUPPOSED to be separate, but many politicians make decisions based on their religions views.

Well I think you've found the root of the problem there then.    
   
Just go take them to court or something I suppose. Isn't that pretty much what this thing-a-ma-jij 8 is?

Well you can't take them to court for it, because they don't visibly do it, in their head they thing things such as "Would Jesus want me to allow this law to pass" It's hard to prove things like that, and even a lie detector isn't foolproof.

Marriage is a union between a Man and a Woman, and so it should be. On the other hand everyone has the right to love what or who ever he wants.I propose: give the homosexuals some form of union that resembles marriage with all its rights and duties, but is not called that way, Idk "partnership bond" or whatever. That way both sides are happy and we can all watch funny cat pictures on FJ again.

That argument makes me think of the whole "separate but equal" thing back when there was segregation.

it's just really annoying how selective it is, the bible also supports slavery and yet the Christians are against it and when it comes to gay marriage they support it

The whole problem with it is that marriage is religious in origin and in that same religion it's considered wrong to be gay, so in christian eyes it's blasphemous against their religion.

But marriage has long evolved from being only a religious ceremony, and is more of a common staple of modern society. But even though we're promised separation of state and church most of the people in charge of things are religious and have religious views, often threatening equal human rights.

Just give it a few more years, gay marriage will be legal in every state soon enough. Remember when black people weren't allowed in the same bathrooms as white people? Remember when women couldn't vote? Human rights change for the better over time.

Actually, marriage pre-dates religion (or at least as far as I know, definitely Christianity). It was formerly a ceremony that basically gave away a familiy's daughter for another man to own (the wedding ring a symbol of her being owned by the man). Now, from this, I assume that the reason gay marriage isn't traditional is that a man wouldn't own a man in this way back then, and so gay marriage was unheard of.   
   
But aside from all this, I'd say that I disagree with it anyway; not just gay marriage, but marriage as a whole.   
   
Though it certainly has changed from what it used to be, I'd say that marriage lacks trust between the married. Seriously - it's promising that you won't run off with anyone else, and to make sure you keep that promise, the government gets involved and creates a whole contract to follow. Can't couples just trust each other? And to make matters worse, it costs money to get married - its as though our whole system of love and trust is based on government contracts and money.

Honestly, there's no logical reason homosexuality should exist, it's only found in essentially anti-evolutionary situations.
1) A DNA accident in the womb cause unnecessary levels of the wrong hormones
2) Giving up on women
3) Believing that their curiosity stage in adolescence is "who they are"
and maybe a few other points.
If there was a god, he wouldn't have any reason to make that DNA accident a possibility, though this is rethinking the entire situation of the human race, still.
Bi-curiosity? Reasonable. But homosexuality is only accepted because it happens.

I don't get why people would be upset about this. If someone needs a place to park and I'm not using my driveway, they can sure as hell use it. Better than taking up the ******* street. It's just logical. There's a space designed for a car to be parked and area on the street designed to be driven - not parked - on. It just makes sense to use the driveway that is not currently in use.

she probably lived in that house, and something bad happend, her husband died there or something. She cant bring herself to sell the house for some reason. but she also cant live there for the same reason probably. Unless she is just crazy. Does she rent it out? If not shes either crazy or sentimental and is now a cranky old lady.
