• The only real issue is what to call it. Also will it be ok for some religious leaders to refuse to marry a couple because they are gay.
  • No, nothing in society would change if gay people could get hitched. Things would be better for them of course - but no change for the rest of us.
  • There isn't a logical reason. The religious leaders and their zealot followers are gearing up to take down the ruling that allows gay marriage. One local news magazine shows a piece featuring both a newly married gay couple with an adopted daughter...that the birth mother specifically asked be given to a gay couple, then a bigot religious leader who trotted out a huge bible to try to get his point across by pointing out the tired and phony text. Of course, these people use the bible and nothing else to damn the gay marriage ruling. Because God is great, is a Christian god and loves only the union between a man and a woman. These people are so pathetic, the word is of little use describing them in totality. They have to hand down law through the bible, because they have fear of a eternal being who only shows up in Cheetos, wood panels and other inane objects.
  • Most Americans, perhaps with the exception a few in white robes, will agree that the ban on interracial marriages is nothing more than prejudice at work. Soon, we will look back at the arguments against same-sex marriages and see, like the ban on interracial marriages, that they are backed by nothing more than bigotry, prejudice and fear.
  • Define logical. If you're defintion of logic is something like "because he told me to" then, yes, there is a logical reason. Fair & just society? What? Where? We have never been a just society. Our society was founded by people who thought it was okay to light people on fire because someone pointed at them and screamed "Witch!" (though I do like the idea of lighting people I don't like on fire.) You're living in a dream world Bobby. But maybe it's nicer than this world, so go on, have fun.
  • Nope, no logical reason. Just don't call it anything different than what straight couples get in terms of state-given rights, or else you're setting up a class of second-class citizens and a state of "separate but equal." History has taught us that such rights are always separate but never equal.
  • There is never anything fair or logical when it comes to prejudice. The world will not come to an end if LGBT people are allowed to marry. Those opposed need to worry about their own lives and find something better to do than dictate the private lives of complete strangers.
