“Same-sex marriage has not created problems for religious institutions; religious institutions have created problems for same-sex marriage.” (DaShanne Stokes)
“For the hundreds of thousands of Californians in gay and lesbian households who are managing their day-to-day lives, this decision affirms the full legal protections and safeguards I believe everyone deserves.” (Arnold Schwarzenegger – movie star and ex Governor of California)
“Gay people getting married is not a threat to the institution of marriage. You know what’s a threat to the institution of marriage?
Infidelity is! Hate is! Unforgiveness is! Apathy is! Coldheartedness is! Fear is!
And you know what’s a threat to the kids?
It’s not having gay parents!
Most gay kids have straight parents!
And plenty of gay parents raise respectable, straight kids!
The threat to children isn’t their parents being gay;
the threat to children is their parents not loving one another!
Not caring for one another!
Not being crazy about each other!
Domestic violence is a threat to children.
Stupidity is a threat to children.
A swimming pool in the backyard with no supervision is a threat to children!”
(C. JoyBell C.
Gay marriage will be universally accepted in time. But if I may be so bold as to say to gays and lesbians, don’t wait for that time to arrive.
Just as my father and his generation did not ‘wait’ for their civil rights, nor should you. The toothpaste ain’t going back in the tube. The tide has turned. John Ridley)
I support gay marriage. I believe they have a right to be as miserable as the rest of us. (Kinky Friedman)
People should be allowed to marry, and gay marriage should be out there. If a man or a woman has a good partner and they love each other with their heart and soul, let them marry. I am very much for gay marriage. (Pierce Brosnan (actor)
“New Rule: Gay marriage won’t lead to dog marriage. It is not a slippery slope to rampant inter-species coupling.
When women got the right to vote, it didn’t lead to hamsters voting.
No court has extended the equal protection clause to salmon. And for the record, all marriages are “same sex” marriages. You get married, and every night, it’s the same sex.”
