They can search for their happiness in another gay-friendly way, not by trying to ruin the sanctity of marriage and family.
What's the sacred part about marriage?
The union of two souls, being the soil and seed, creating and nurturing life that will (or should) reflect as the product of love between its mother and father.
We're not talking about holy matrimony here, we're talking about regular marriage, though there are more than enough Christian denominations that perform gay marriages in their churches. This whole sanctity of marriage thing is pure bullsh*t, pardon my French. Not everybody has to believe in your god, and I think there's also a thing called "separation of church and state" somewhere in the Constitution. You might not be a Republican, but you sure as hell sound like one.
Let me tell you about myself a bit.
I am athiest. I am a democrat, and will be one unless i get rich, in which case, i wouldnt want to pay more taxes just so the poor that are too lazy to do something about it can survive.
Do i approve of gay marriage? No. Am i doing anything to stop it? No. When the issue came up in 2008 to BAN it here in california, i voted against the measure; i wanted to see gay marriage legalized only to piss off the mormons and evangilists who were working so hard to ban gay marriage. But i still dont like it. I dont think gay people should benefit from the established marriage system, its unfair for those who use marriage as a tool to create a stable family. If gays are allowed to marry, they shouldnt be allowed to benifit from it the way straight people do since a lot of the aspects of a hetero marriage do not apply to gays, and should renounce them. But since i know thats not gonna happen, then to avoid a full-blown sexual/gender discrimination war, the fight should be ended by banning gay marriage.
Thats my opinion, hate it or love it. I dont care, its not changing unless you pro-gay marriage folk can come up with a good point, which ive yet to see.
