How will granting homosexuals the right to marriage negatively influence society and your marriage? My opinion? *It doesn't have any effect on my marraige, why would it? *Equal protection and equal rights means exactly that-equal!. *Banning gay marriage will discriminate against churches that will marry homosexuals. The bill would be overturned on a freedom of religion appeal. *If you disagree about gay marriage, allow them to have equal rights and take solace in your belief that they will pay dearly in the after-life. What do you think?
