I view myself as a hardcore democrat, kinda a catch 22, but gay marriage shouldnt even matter what party you belong to. Its called seperation of church and state, the only place that it cites that homosexuality is wrong is in the bible....i agree with para...two people love each other, who am i to say its wrong and shouldnt be allowed. The only real reason my guess that it is still "outlawed" is because of finicial reasons. big buisness doesnt want to pay for a gay employees partner, so as long as its not marriage under the law they do not have to. thats completly my opinion and im not citing it as fact.
