    I believe that marriage is supposed to be between a man and a woman. That belief may be made fun of, but I truly think that's how it is.
    however, I also believe people should be able to make their own choices. I can see why prop. 8 upset people, because it took away their right to choose. I think same sex couples should be allowed a marriage/civil union/whatever you want to call it. It's their constitutional right, just as it's my right to believe in heterosexual marriage! Let God decide what to do about it later.

    This issue is about how the state governs its citizens. There is no rational basis for the state to deny homosexual couples the legal benefits conferred upon heterosexual couples. What if the government were to have a law that defined marriage as only between caucasian citizens? There would be riots in the street because such a law would be clearly in violation of the Constitution. But, the religious right has no problem with denying homosexual citizens their rights. Religious beliefs cannot dictate how the government governs its citizens. There has to be a rational basis for enacting any law that promotes or abridges the rights of American citizens.

    I don't understand how narrow minded people can be. Love is love what does it matter the sex of the individuals? I wouldn't want anyone to have a say in my marriage! It is not a religous issue its a human issue!

    I do believe marriage should between and man and women. Call it something else give it a different name, but give them the same rights as married people. But leave the word "marriage" to stright people.

    Anyone with a brain could see it was unconstitutional. And then you have the Conservatives, who have been on the wrong side of every equal rights issue in history.
