Usually when you think of marriage you think of a man and a woman. I think gay and lesbians should be allowed to marry too. Obviously, not everybody thinks this way. Gay marriage is a hot topic these days. Some people are totally against it and think it’s gross. I think it is perfectly fine and acceptable. I love gay people. I think they have a certain spunk and attitude about them and they don’t care what anyone thinks. They are also carefree and show individuality. They are not bothering or hurting anyone and I really don’t see what the big deal is about it. I am for gay marriage 100 percent.
One reason I am for gay marriage is because to deny gays and lesbians the right to marry takes away their religious freedom. Everyone thinks that homosexuality is a sin and is not Christian like. But gays are not sinning. It is not a sin for a man to love a man. They should be allowed to love whoever they want without being harshly judged like they already are. This is America and everybody has their freedoms to do whatever they want so why shouldn’t gay people? Homosexual couples should have the same rights as heterosexual couples. People are people no matter what sexual orientation they are. Let them marry whoever they want. I don’t think they should be criticized on who they love. Would we want our rights taken away if we were in their shoes? I don’t think so. It is absolutely ridiculous that this is even an issue. This is discrimination and they don’t deserve to get discriminated against based on who they love and they should have the right to marry just like anyone else. We are letting young kids get married and that is risky so why shouldn’t gays be allowed to marry. As of right now they get a civil union, but if they want a traditional ceremony like heterosexual couples they should have that right.
Another reason I am for gay marriage is because love conquers all. People marry because they love each other and want to spend the rest of their lives together. Love...
