    This might get ugly but...

    As a Catholic Christian I believe all humans have the right to love and marry whoever they want.

    It is so sad that people cast stones and judge others.

        Great way to put it Yari. When I saw the negative comment above, I was wondering how I could respond. I think you said it perfectly.

        And if you don't agree with this new law, that is fine and that's your choice, but there was no need to come to a thread that clearly supports it.

          Yay Yari! I agree with you 100%. The judging bothers me the most.

            I feel the same way Carly. I was trying to decide how to respond and really wanted to say something. I believe someday same sex marriage will be widely accepted.

              Morgan, Carly & Andrea- I so wish you lived in Cali so you could vote!!!

              I don't think people understand what voting yes means. They are scared that there children will be taught about gay marriage in school. This is ridiculous! They don't even teach marriage in schools. They think that more gays will appear out of no where. Um, there are a lot of gay people around us now and by allowing them to get married is not going to change anything for us. It is very important for them to be allowed the same human and civil rights.

              What they do behind closed doors is no one's business, just like it is no one's business what my husband and I do.

                A similar bill was unfortunately passed in KY a few years ago.

                The sad thing about these bills is that most voters aren't aware or don't pay attention to the wording. They get lumped into a ban on gay marriage, when in reality the wording is much different.

                The bill that passed here eliminates all benefits for all unmarried couples in addition to defining marriage between one man and one woman.

                So, technically, I should not have been covered under my husband's insurance before we were married because the state refutes domestic partnership.

                I know that everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion. My advice is to be sure that you are an informed and responsible voter before you head to the polls.

                  I agree, there is way to much judging that goes on in this country. I think that people should be able to love and marry whomever they choose. They are making a commitment to each other and that commitment should be accepted and acknowledged. Hip, Hip, Horray for California!

                      also, i hope people realize that it's OK to vote no on prop 8 even if they personally do not agree with homosexuality. they are not voting on whether or not to allow homosexuality to continue. it is just a vote for equal rights.

                      i really think this will be the shameful issue we look back on for our generation. it's our generations civil rights act.
