I do not believe in Gay Marriage at all. I think that during the recent years, the gay rights movement has changed from one trying to promote acceptance and tolerance to one that is trying to promote itself as a desirable lifestyle choice.
To me it seems like this is trying to divide our society. We have many people who do not believe in this, and are being forced to accept and promote them in order to have support from them and those who accept them. For instance, I don't believe in that, and my sister and her friends are always attacking me, trying to make me change my beliefs. I respect gay people, but I will not support them, because those are my beliefs. I'm called ignorant over that. See what I mean. If politicians don't support that, than they are label as ignorant and many other things. Ex; majority of Republicans don't believe in same-sex marriage, so many people who defend gay people don't want to vote for Rep. I'm not a Republican, but at least they stand up and voice their beliefs of something they don't believe in.
To me Gay seems like something they're trying to push to society. Like now in TV shows, Movies, Media. Like if a famous celebrity comes out, it's a big deal and they get tons of media publicity.

I do not "believe" in it, I simply accept and respect people who are gay and their lifestyle choices. I have several gay friends and I love them. What I DO believe in, however, is that everyone deserves love and anyone should be able to be with whomever they want. It makes no difference at all to me.
I would never judge someone because of who they choose to spend their life with. No one is telling everyone to be gay, that's ridiculous. I just see it as supporting those who ARE gay and encouraging those who already are gay to be open about it. No one should live in fear for loving someone but for centuries gay people have been looked down on and humiliated by others. I do not think that is right, I like to give support to those who need it and everyone I know who is gay definitely does need it.
I don't think anyone is being forced to accept anything, but that doesn't mean people who disagree with it should be hateful to gay people, because really, that's how many anti-gay people are. Gay, straight, we're all human, whatever gender someone decides to love has no basis of their character and the person they are inside. Honestly, more people should be tolerant of those who are different than they are, the world would be a much better place then I think. THAT is what I believe.3
