I consider myself socially conservative and do not think churches should be forced to participate in or sanctions that are inconsistent with their beliefs.

If that’s what gay marriage is, then I’m against it. If, on the other hand, gay marriage is making life easier for two (or ten) people, then I don’t care.

The issue has become so political that the obvious solution — get government out of the pews — is not an option.

I understand the ‘slippery slope’ theory and appreciate that this could become a stepping stone to adoption rights and other things I don’t think are good for society, but put a gay marriage/pro life on the ballot with a defense of marriage/pro choice candidate and it’s a no brainer for me.

Dittow, wizwor, although I do think gays should be able to adopt. I have several gay friends who are doing a spectacular job raising adopted children, and one couple went out of their way to adopt special needs children.

“If, on the other hand, gay marriage is making life easier for two (or ten) people, then I don’t care.”

If the government takes someone’s property without compensating them, I really don’t care. It doesn’t affect me. If they take away my neighbor because he is Jewish, why do I care? I’m not Jewish.

It is NOT a slippery slope. It is a jagged rock near the bottom of that slope.

I've got news for you, homosexual marriage IS NOT about making life "easier" for ANYONE. It is about DESTROYING America's Judeo-Christian culture.
