    Im sick of pple walkin around actin like its ok to be gay. ITS NASTY AND WRONG! Stop tryin to make the normal part of america seem unfair and mean we recongize its not natrual to be gay Thats y theres so many protest and about it. Gays cannot force us to accept there dirty actions. (Call me what u want to make urself feel better!) Gay is wrong and i hope they outlaw gay marriage everywhere.

    I disagree with whatev. Same sex marriage is an important issue. My girlfriend and I are unfortunate enough to live in a state with a constitutional law prohibiting us from getting married. Personally I don't think it's fair that anyone can tell us we don't love each other or can't marry cause we are both women. But the world is evolving, and people are learning. We need to step up for equal rights for ALL. Human rights are human rights. Every person in this world deserves the right to marry who they love.

    @whatev: Yup, there are much larger issues in the world right now. So it would seem to me that the government could stop using any of it's time or resources telling adults who they can or cannot marry. It's not their business who any adult marries. It's no one elses except the two people commiting to each other.

    I married the love of my life. Because we are straight it was easy and no one disapproved. It's simply wrong that a whole class of people can't do the same. I live in a state that allows gay marriage and despite all the freaking out people did and all the ones who basically said the world would end over it not one bad thing has happened as a result. Only good can come from equal rights.

    i'm sorry but these celebrities need to shut up. there are so many worse issues going on in the world right now, i think obama has enough to worry about. i am not against gay marriage at all but i do think that it really is not a priority right now.

    It's time America, for marriage equality, and for Obama to end the costly and non-sensical Bush-Obama "wars."

    And marriage cops go play so bingo.....

    If all these liberal sweetheart celebritys feel that obama is such a dissapointment to them for not doing enough-they should think about the republicans who wouldnt do anything for their cause. They should be grateful obama is trying at all.
