    i see marriage as a religious thing, therefore acknowledging a bond in whatever Gods' you believe in eye. This is a pretty glorious and glorifying thing... it's of the highest level a couple can go. Unfortunately in my world, gay's can't reach this level... there's something just not quite right.

    Are you religious as a rule though? You're obviously entitled to your opinion, so I apologise if I was a little overbearing in my earlier post, I just find it curious that people get so concerned when gay people are mentioned getting the same rights as everyone else.

    I find it particularly strange that all of a sudden people become concerned about children's welfare...

    Does anyone remember the girl with the "two mummies" on Play School?

    The public outcry was just sickening.

    Marriage is a union under God, therefore if you want to marry you should obey God's rules for marriage.

    legal rights the same as married couples are different.

    as many of you know i view Homosexuality as a sin in the first place and if that is ofcourse marriage etc is out of the question

    My views on gay marriage is that it can be acknowledged by the government, but it does not have to be realized as marriage by doctrines that oppose it.

    Marriage is a union between a man and a woman.
    Too true.. a nation is built on its religious moral values.. in case of countries like USA, UK, NZ, Aus ( Most western Countries ) the Bible.. which strictly states about the marriage sanctity between a man and women and doesnt regard of gay marriages or union well at all.. ..

    If what you meant to say was that they shouldn't marry, but be together some other way, i fully agree. I'm slightly homophobic, but if its just 2 people I don't know, why not let them be together forever. That said, there's really no need to get married. Alot of straight couples stay together all their lives unmarried these days.

    Old Testament or New?

    By that I mean are you stoning people who sow two varieties of grain in their fields (Leviticus) or following Jesus's example?

    In retrospect, a pretty stupid question.

    Fair enough, but personally I view the bible as somewhat ancient history. Laws are constantly updated so I fail to see how adhering to principles set in stone a couple of thousand years ago are relevant to today's society. Sure, the basic tenants are the same, but is it then morally right to deny someone their basic right as a person due to prejudice?

    I have no doubt that, back in the day, there were gay people around. Things are more out in the open and liberal now so in my opinion something written when homosexuality was either unknown or kept secret holds no water.

    What about atheists, agnostics, or those who believe in another religion? Not only are you denying them a right conferred to them within the universal declaration of human rights that states, “Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution,” but you’re also enforcing upon them your religion, another violation of the declaration of human rights (Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion).
