Being raised catholic I do not personally support gay marriage, but I see it this way. Just because you don't support it, why find evil ways to discriminate and humiliate gay people? In my eyes, I think marriage should be solemnly for a man and a woman because of my religion and the way I was raised. However, I would never treat a gay person with disrespect. I'm sure all of you have heard of the ChickfilA incident that is fueling all over the internet. I live in Texas and wherever you turn, you will see a ChickfilA. I think if you don't like what they have said you do NOT have to go. Either way supporting gay marriage or not, Chickfila does not ban gay people from going to chickfila and if they do go, they treat them with respect and not rudely. So what is your input in the matter? Do you support it or not? Why or why not? And please as I have included in the title, NO HATE. We're adults and I assume all of us can handle a topic of this situation maturely. Thanks!

as a black, atheist, feminist, liberal, bisexual woman, and someone who believes in civil rights and equal rights, there would be no moral justification or logical reason for me to oppose gay marriage. I cant, out of interest for myself, because of my beliefs, and my compassion for people support any law banning gay marriage or any inaction in law that doesn't address this injustice.
you can say anything you want about your beliefs, but to me its no different from telling me that I can't marry someone because I'm black, or because I'm atheist, telling me I can't vote because I'm a woman, etc. it is an essentially bigoted, and often hateful, position to oppose gay marriage. you're being intolerant of other types of people and telling them that they shouldn't be entitled to the basic rights that other groups have. but we've been down this road before with people who have ideals of social justice vs. the conservative bigots. hopefully things go the course that some others have gone, and just like my ancestors had to fight for their own basic rights, we will continue pushing for ours and hopefully the outcome will be just and in line with at least the veneer of the American ideal. its just sad that we are dealing with this in the 21st century, in a country that is often considered to be head of the pack in terms of civil rights and the leader of the free world. but that's the punch line I guess. nothing new there.12
