No because marriage is between one man and one woman. Whats next we legalize humans marrying animals?

paulydel - that doesn't make any sense at all. marriage is a contract between CONSENTING adults, otherwise it's more akin to slavery. an animal can't give consent and so can't enter into a contract.

Why would anyone insist on restricting other's freedoms over something that had absolutely no affect whatsoever on their own life? I'm really surprised at how close this poll is.

I Agree It's a slippery slope. Once you let the gays Marry, all bets are off. You might have to start respecting the basic rights of all people.

This may be Obama territory, but this is a HEAVILY Catholic area. Obama messed with the wrong group with his decision to support gay marriage.

It may help him when it comes to donations, but it will hurt him come November. Social conservatives that have been hesitant to support Romney will not support him. Furthermore, battleground states such as NC, VA, and OH will become that much tougher for Obama to win again.

And to think, NONE of this would have happened if Biden didn't make that gaffe on Meet the Press!

As a republican catholic, married two chidren I will not vote for Obama, however; I do approve his decision. Two men or two women have a right to live together or marry. It is time for media & religious leaders let it rest.

Gay marriage has no place in it. Happy marriages do.

I have nothing against the gay community. I have friends who are gay and have never felt uneasy around them but when it comes to marriage thats just rediculus. The good Lord never mentioned anything about Adam and Steve being married and thats the way it should be and should stay.

From pj's comment:
"....Two men or two women have a right to live together or marry......."

I agree with the right to live together part, but I have a question:

pj - Why two? What legally reasonable answer do you have for limitting marriage to two people??

In the beginning there was one man and one woman, because God created just one of each and told them to multiply. But if you look at marriage in the Bible beyond that, you see polygamy, concubines, taking captives or slaves as wives, and the like. For example, David, named a man after God's own heart, had at least six wives. Yet people say that one man and one wife is Biblical.
If marriage really matters, why is divorce so easy and so common? Could it be that it's not really about marriage, but fighting change? I know a number of same-sex couples that have been together and monogamous for over ten years, yet the GOP had the multiply-married Lee Greenwood lead the Pledge of Allegiance at one convention while they were touting "family values".

Newt Gingrich obviously believes in the sanctity of marriage. He keeps practicing it again and again and again....

Obama should go gay and really show his support. Then he could run on the platform of being the first gay president. Barney could then run with him as VP. A name change to THE LIBERAL GAY STATES OF AMERICA could finalize the theme of things. Anything less would be homophobic. RIGHT?

I made a boo boo. It should have said one man & another man should be allowed to live together or marry. Same for a woman. Thx's for bringing this to my attention.
