I'm just curious. I can understand that we all have freedoms to believe whatever we want but there's always a limit to those freedoms. The only reasons I can think of for people's hostility towards gays are for religious reason and men's egos and insecurities. While I can understand that they have the right to believe in the old testament bible, they have absolutely no right to force their beliefs on other people and maliciously display hostility towards those who disagree with them or doesn't subscribe to their philosophies.

I am one of those who are actually against homosexuality and oppose gay-marriage. I haven't had this opinion for religious reasons only , but for logical ones as well. In fact , I never mention the religious aspect when I talk about this issue. I won't speak for everyone , but personally , I don't spread hate or be mean to gay people. I respect everyone as long as they respect me. Though i agree with you when it comes to this type of people who keep disrespecting others they disagree with ( this includes everyone , whether they are " homophobic " as people call them or " pro homosexuality ) But I know that despite all that , some people would still call me homophobic ( which , I noticed , is considered an obnoxious thing ) just because I have a different opinion. I don't understand why many people don't seem to realize that as well.2

Most people believed marriage was legally recognized to deal with biological offspring and the resultant parental obligations, even if they weren't wanted. The recent ruling confirmed that the federal government does not hold that to be the fundamental reason for recognizing marriage (although it does still assume paternity of a male spouse when a female spouse gives birth). The court did not give definite conditions for the basis of a legally recognized marriage, which makes it impossible for local governments to know which marriage license applications they are allowed and not allowed to approve if an unusual one comes up. (The federal government doesn't issue marriage licenses, to my knowledge.)
Additionally, the logic used to get to the ruling is very convoluted and unconvincing for a lot of people. Many people also believe that the proper place for deciding the basis for a legal marriage is the legislative branch, not the judicial or the executive.0
