I am completely in favor of gay marriage, and this is coming from someone who is not very open minded as well. I typically say no to a lot of things, but considering human rights I mean come on, you can't only allow natural rights to a certain population of people in the US or any nation for that matter.
I understand that the bible states marriage is strictly an eternal bond between a man and a woman. But the bible also states you are allowed to sell your daughter into slavery and stone your wife. And it also forbids sex before marriage. If I'm not mistaken, those rules aren't exactly practiced today now are they?
Taking away gay marriage would also be unconstitutional, hence the separation of church and state. Its against the constitution to mix religion and politics. =]
If anyone disagrees I'd be more than happy to go in further detail.
The only part there that I can disagree with is that I haven't found the part (and no one has shown me) in the Bible where it states that marriage is only between a man and a woman.
