I repeat: am I missing something?!? What does gays or lesbians getting married have ANYTHING to do with anyone’s marriage personally? is it going to weaken the marital bond that I have with my husband? NO! And don’t give me the B.S. that our children’s attitudes about marriage will be altered if we allow people of the same sex to get married (the, “it will turn him/her gay” argument). A child may or may not become gay whether marriage is redefined(to include gays and lesbians) or not. And, they might get married while gay, too! It has gone on for years and years. Gay people will continue to exist and raise families and have marriage ceremonies whe

ther the State recognizes them or not. Why can’t we just accept that, recognize these relationships as marriages and move on?!? I can’t even believe this is an issue. What is wrong with two people who love each other getting married?! I think it is frightening that Bush wants to try to put an amendment in our constitution to ban gay marriages. I think it’s nuts! I feel like I’m in the twilight zone or something.

Sorry to get on my soapbox, but this issue really gets to me, probably because I live in the San Francisco bay area. I’ve watched these weddings in the news and seeing how happy these people are. I just don’t understand the problem with it.
