  • Yes, of course. The US Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v Hodges in 2015 was correct: Banning or not honoring same-sex marriages is a violation of The Equal Protection Clause and Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment.

    www.supremecourt.gov/.../14-556_3204.pdf

    Held: The Fourteenth Amendment requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State.

    STEVE BESHEAR, GOVERNOR OF
    KENTUCKY

    ON WRITS OF CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE SIXTH CIRCUIT

    [June 26, 2015]

    JUSTICE KENNEDY delivered the opinion of the Court.

    The Constitution promises liberty to all within its reach, a liberty that includes certain specific rights that allow persons, within a lawful realm, to define and express their identity. The petitioners in these cases seek to find that
    liberty by marrying someone of the same sex and having their marriages deemed lawful on the same terms and conditions as marriages between persons of the opposite sex.

    ****

    No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right. The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed.

    It is so ordered.

      Nonetheless, the logic is applicable everywhere. In short, either:

      1) You support it because you understand empathy and tyranny of the majority

      OR

      2) You are short-sighted, lack empathy, poor at logic, and fail tp realuze that if the tyranny of the majority is not kept in check, sooner or later, it's going to come after you when you are in the minority.

  • I don't really support any marriage, mostly because it's outdated and people don't keep their promises anyway.

    I can understand why people are against gay marriage. Marriage used to be a religious institution, and most religions frown upon homosexuality. Therefore gay marriage is an affront to people's religion.

  • Marriage is an illusion.. queer people should be allowed to partake in the illusion as well. Equality for all.

  • Absolutely, if that’s what they want. I have plenty of cousins and family members that are gay. They should have the same opportunities as everyone else.

  • I don't. To me I just don't think its right. Like let's say everyone in the entire world was married to the same sex... we would have no more population because its impossible for the Same sex to have kids unless they adopt. If we people don't populate the earth with children... we will eventually die out and go extinct.
