First of all, let's make one thing very clear. This is not about religion. If you bring your religious views into a discussion about basic human rights, your opinion is automatically invalid. See, we have this concept in America, called separation of church and state. This is in the constitution. So, conservatives like to use the Constitution to back up every ridiculous claim. They manipulate the words far beyond any rational interpretation. But the separation of church and state is stated very clearly in the Constitution. And, funnily enough, there is no argument against gay marriage without religious justification. No one cares that your God doesn't recognize marriage as anything other than a man and a woman. No. One. Cares. Same sex marriage is now legal across the United States, which should have happened ages ago, but since it has now, there is absolutely no reason to deny same sex couples the benefits heterosexual couples are given. See, if we save certain privileges for straight married couples, then gay couples aren't really married at all. Gay marriage was legalized because people are starting to catch on to the fact that love is love. We cannot allow this decision to be so meaningless. Gay couples can and should be able to get married. We won't let that right be stripped of its meaning. It's not just for show.
