Keep marriage between one man and one woman, the way God instituted it. By the way, the State has no right to legalize nor regulate marriage, anyway.

really? I just don't understand the issue with gay marriage. If men and women are equal, then a man & a man, a man & a woman, a woman & a woman, should be treated equally.

I'm not gay, I don't have any gay friends, but...well...who cares if they want to get married? If they want to suffer as much as the rest of us do, let them!

Yeah, I abstained. I felt like voting for it was voting to take away gay people's rights, and voting against it was voting to take away the rights of all those who define marriage differently.

The state should not be defining what is a moral status, they should treat us all as individuals. I disagree with the premise of the law, the supreme court ruling, and the proposed amendment.

Has it passed? That sucks, hahaha

God Schmod! Although I do believe the government shouldn't be involved with marriage at all, which of course would make gay marriage possible.

Who cares? I can legally grow marijuana (not that I want to...) after Michigan's prop 1 is enacted :D

You can't be an advocate for freedom and the constitution while trying to limit someone elses freedom.

Yep...Someone's freedom to enter into what essentially amounts to a contract. The government is to protect the sanctity of a contract, not pick and choose which among us are able to enter into one.

I voted against Prop 8 and I'm surprised that it looks to be on its way to passing.

The problem is, they call it marriage, a concept that's been around for millenia. I wouldn't vote for prop 8 either, as I described, but the alternative is an abuse of power also.

If they called it the "joint taxation and custody contract" I'd be all for it. Better yet, they should just treat us as individuals.

These two statements are contradictory, unless you mean that the government should get out of marriage entirely, at which point you will personally choose to support the traditional definition of marriage in your own life.

There are plenty of gay churches. Like the above said, the state shouldn't be involved in marriage.

Your church should be free to define it anyway they choose.

So the state should use it's power to enforce that no one gets married except those the church approves of? The state should get out of the way, and let people and churches do and support what they will.

It is wrong to use coercive force to impose social and moral definitions.
