Arizona does not allow same-sex marriage, civil unions or domestic partnerships. Since it’s considered a Republican state, a majority of Arizona residents would probably like to keep the rules unchanged.
However, I believe that same-sex marriage and all of the above should be allowed.
Many people base their thoughts on what their religion tells them. I’m not going to say that any religious beliefs are wrong because I don’t want to judge someone.
But I believe that religious beliefs involve judgments about “right” and “wrong.” And unless it’s a proven fact, it is an opinion — and that’s a fact.
Why does your way have to be the right way? Everyone has views about what is right or wrong. I believe there is nothing wrong with being gay and that we should support gay marriage.
There is no reason why people’s personal beliefs should affect anyone else. People should believe what they want but not take unnecessary actions towards other people, such as banning same-sex marriage.
Love really doesn’t have to be between a man and a woman. Love is something strong that people can feel for a lot of different people.
If a man happens to fall in love with a man, then what’s the problem? If no one is threatening you or hurting you in any way, why should people take action to stop what someone else wants to do?
The hate that goes around doesn’t make anyone happier, especially when it involves stopping others from being happy. What do people get out of this?
No matter how much someone hates someone, they can’t change how someone is or how someone was born. I don’t understand why people try to change people. Only that person can change himself or herself.
Marriage is a sign of love. Everybody should be able to be fully committed to the one they’re in love with. Think about if a man and a woman’s marriage was no longer allowed but gay marriages were.
Gay marriage should be legal.
