You know what really cheeses me off? The idiots behind this kind of crap don't really give a shit about marriage or 'protecting' anybody. They don't have the balls to admit that it's really just a pathetic attempt to curtail people's freedom (in particular, women's) and stoke the 'sheeple' mentality.

I'm kinda iffy on the subject of gay marriage myself. But as long as people a) are not hurting anybody in the process, and b) do not try to dictate to me what I can and cannot do (or my family/friends, for that matter), I don't really get what all the fuss is about. Considering the state of the world right now, I'd say we have WAY more important threats to deal with than whether or not a couple of homosexuals want to have a wedding in downtown Main Street or such.

Yes, and it's also about insecurity and suppressing what they think is "different" or "deviant." And to some of them, it's a holy crusade- and we all know how well those turn out...

To me, love is love, and marriage is a piece of government-sanctioned paper, so what's the big deal?

I just don't see why there should be a debate to begin with. This whole controversy is no better than that "separate but equal" bull during the Civil Rights movement- haven't we learned better than that by now? Some states even want to make up a "separate but equal" marriage for gays. It'll legally be like a marriage, only it won't be. WTF? Pull the bibles out of your behinds, people, really.

I agree with mqstout that the government should have nothing to do with our marriages whatsoever. I'd have considered not getting a marriage license with Nick, but unfortunately, the government has tied into it too many financial incentives for us to ignore (i.e., Nick can be covered under my insurance once we're married, and we'd be eligible for a nice big income tax break). I'm too poor even to have principles, goshdangit...
