    @ Ben - Sounds like you have a few repressed urges to deal with!

    @ Gus - All people that have any type of fertility problems should therefore be banned from adopting? Best start building orphanages.

    @ Sally - if we left things the way cultures started you would not be able to spell nor in any way be entitled to an opinion, which in this case maybe wouldn't be the worse scenario!

    This is ridiculous why can't you all let people live. We should all have the same rights. Maybe we should have hetro waterfountains too

    Government should not be endorsing marriages in the first place or even giving them breaks that singles dont get. Their job should just be to recognise a contract between parties.

    "Marriage" should be left religious institutions. Some churches acknowledge gay marriage, so just go to the one that suits your needs. If gay marriage is offensive to you then dont attend those churches that recognise their marriage.

    Win-Win for everyone!!

    @Sally: why cant women just accept theoretical equality but accept they are inferior to men?

    Women who side with right wing homophobes are just as bad as any minorities who side with that hateful bag of assholes.

    Why not let them marry but not adopt. They cant produce life's in a reproductive way. They want their cake and eat it too. This is the biggest crock of shit I've ever heard of
