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.

From a religious standpoint gay marriage can't be done because in almost all religions homosexuality is prohibited

I doubt it's "in almost all" as there's plenty of religions that actually do not prohibit such. One of the larger, popular religions is hinduism, for example.

You shouldn't want to change a specific religion.

Indeed, I am not even wanting to change religious behaviour in this case.

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

As I explained, marriage can be seen in two different ways: one is the religious bind, and the other is where the bind is between the people themselves.

Now ask yourself, why would people wish to declare their affection and love to another person publicly and you should already have the answer to your question.

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.

Indeed, but there's plenty of countries where only heterosexual couples are given special treatment by the law, homosexual people are excluded.

Should gays allowed to get married by a priest or in a religious setting?

Of course they should be allowed to do it, if they find a priest or similar representative of the religion who is willing to do it. The law shouldn't force those aforementioned representatives to do it, that I agree with, but they shouldn't be denied either.
