Gays got a right to be miserable, unhappily married, and get divorced just like the rest of the population. Personally, I'd like to see bigamy made legal. Marriage aint nothing but a contract between conseting parties and thats all it ever should be. Love and family all of that you have without getting married.
As someone who has been the object of obsession for a Gay man I can understand how homosexuality can make straight people feel uncomfortable without religious reasoning. Still the fact remains that gay men and women are people just like everyone else. They are as fallible as the rest of us, they deserve equal rights and equal opportunities. Even if you have a bad experience like I have, don't persecute others for the acts of one or a few.
I live in Maine, and I went to the hearing for the legislators on the Gay Marriage bill that came up a few weeks ago, and supporters and opposers of the bill each had a chance to speak. I was there from 9am to 4:30pm and I really can't even count the number of times I heard, "I'm not here to share my opinion. I'm speaking for God." I'm not even kidding.
You had to register beforehand to speak, but I wanted so badly to walk up to the podium and be like, "That's so strange, because I live in a country where there's a separation of Church and State. I couldn't care less what your god has to say about other people getting married."
Anyway, the story ends with the Governor signing the bill after the legislators passed it. They're working on a people's veto, but it's a small victory for the cause, I s'pose.
The nice thing about being an atheist is that you don't need to ask other atheists how "we" feel about anything. That being said, I assume that you were just being silly, and I am delighted that we are making progress as a nation.
