    Is same sex marriage Good or Bad?

    After watching an episode of the Dr. Phil show, he asked the question, "Same sex marriage: is it right or wrong? The show had gotten heated up because one side of his audience thought that same sex marriage was good. The other side of his audience thought that same sex marriage was bad. So what do you think? Is same sex marriage good or bad?

    It really depends on your individual viewpoints.
    Since I am bisexual, I believe same sex marriage is good. It allows people to be treated equal under the law and all men were created equally. So since we were all created equally, we should all have the same rights under the law. We should be with whoever we love regardless of other people's opinions of it. The law should be impartial and separate from religion. There is separation between church and state and it should stay that way.

    It's not about "good" or "bad" or even "right" or "wrong".
    Ultimately it's about the rights of two people in love.
    It's not against the law to be gay or lesbian nor love anyone of the same sex or cohabitate.
    If we are a nation that espouses "separation of church and state" then religion has no say on this issue. Exodus 31:15 of the bible says:
    "Anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death."
    Clearly we're not executing people for working through the weekend.
    Lots of people are "fornicating" prior to marriage which is not illegal. Therefore the use of religious grounds is nothing more than "cherry picking" scriptures to suit one's personal dislikes.
    If we state in our laws it is illegal to discriminate against anyone based upon race, national origin, age, gender, religion, and sexual orientation the "marriage equality" issue becomes a civil rights issue.
    It wasn't until Loving v. Virginia 1967  the United States Supreme Court invalidated laws prohibiting "interracial marriage".
    That's less than 50 years ago!
    Some folks used biblical verses such as Daniel 2:43 to oppose interracial marriage. Today in most parts of the U.S. it's not a big deal anymore.
    According to Williams Institute only {3.8%} of Americans identified themselves as gay/lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.
    What do I stand to gain or lose because of who my neighbor marries? Why should I give a damn? Someone who is against same sex marriage will not marry someone of their sex! Problem solved!
    Much like interracial marriage I believe in 50 years those of us who are still around will wonder what was all the big fight about?
    Historically every minority group including women have had to fight, march, demand, protest and even die to have their rights validated and protected. I guess it's the LGBT community's turn.
