Of course. Marriage is contract that involves the state. Bible thumpers have no say in the matter.

To be fair, that's what America is, 50%+1 of people deciding how the 50%-1 should live.

That's why we're all in this mess. We've outgrown this system, we're ready to move on. This own nation federalized game has been fun, time to take it down.

Gay marriage should be allow for two reasons 1. One the same reasons and arguments made when inter-racial marriages where allowed. 2. Marriage is not just about love between two people. It is about taxes, medical rights, children, property rights

To be fair most of those things can be accomplished through power of attorney and other docs but I still agree.

And it goes on and on. Because of this, because this is the American legal system a class of people are being discriminated against in the states where it is not yet legal. Therefore, it should be

Most of them can be accomplished legally. Some of them may still be challenged & overridden. Most of the time paperwork, bureaucracy, time & money are involved. There are MANY of them. All of which a heterosexual couple gets just by getting married.

There is a power of attorney for taxes? And Gay people were be prevented from availing themselves of the "other" documents - like adoption paper

And why should a homosexual couple have to pay all the extra expense when a Heterosexual couple just has to buy a marriage license

It's morally wrong and bad for society it's a sin and they can't re produce so thats a message and if you should be able to marry who your attracted to should people be able to marry animals, or maybe sibling could marry where is it gonna stop

It stops, as always with adult human consent.

Most of your arguments against it were used against interracial marriage also. In the 46 years since Loving v. Virginia was decided, have you EVER heard of ANYONE in the US wanting to marry their dog?

1. Animals can't consent to contracts. Come on. Fire up the brain cells.
2. If two siblings consent it's really none of your business. Not for me, I find it odd, but I don't own anyone, they aren't my slaves, so I can't control them.

1. Marriage shouldn't be a State issue.
2. Free people don't ask permission
3. However, if you people insist on letting government control you like slaves then at least we should all get fûcked with the same. I voted against the amendment in MN.

Against the constitutional amendment that would have banned same sex marriage?

It was a proposed amendment that would have made marriage one man and one woman. I disagreed with that and voted against it. I want the State out of marriage but will support the equality of gay folks if they want it.

I meant "government" issue there. I usually use "State" to refer to government.
