Internet & Networking It's official now. The signs had been there for a while now. While the west bangs on about the importance of freedom and democracy, they don't actually want anyone to have too much of it. The US, France, and the UK have jointly pretty much declared war on freedom on the web.

Both of you are right, but seeing it from a different point of view.

From a religious standpoint gay marriage can't be done because in almost all religions homosexuality is prohibited (Think: procreation, a new set of rules as husband and wife and the vow of faithfulness and respect towards each other). You shouldn't want to change a specific religion.

So you see, this marriage concept came together to bond a man and female in front of God to take their blessings from God. These religions have greatly influenced our laws through history. While some of you aren't religious (or won't admit), you can't ignore that most of today's culture derives from those views.

I don't even know why you would want to marry if you're gay except for...

In the world we live in these days we don't have to love each other to marry, we don't even have to know each other. Some marry strippers they know 1 night. Some marriages last 2 weeks. We can choose whether we want to do it in a church, mosque, at a beach, at home with or without a priest or whatever.

For the law it's more a administration kinda deal, a contract between two partners if you will. Build your party or event around it.

Should gay people allowed to get married? By law I think so. Being gay isn't illegal. Should gays allowed to get married by a priest or in a religious setting? I think not.
