Imagine this conversation if we were using the term 'wedlock' in the place of 'marriage'.
[they mean the same thing )
..I'd be sitting at home with my three Bas tard [Also once called 'whoresons'] children they wouldn't be entitled to any inheritance, and they'd be looked down on in society as second class citizens.
Oh how times change things!
Yay for tradition hey!?

And just to clarify - I'm getting married in 3 months according to the LAW. I believe that I am already married in the eyes of God. My marriage was between me and my husband and my God - no one else has had their filthy hands in it. I'm only getting married (by law) firstly so as to make a public declaration (which I believe is where the ceremony first originated), secondly so that I can change my name to his because I hate it and I want to have the same name as at lease SOME of my children and thirdly so that we can have a party!!!!! But as far as I'm concerned this 'legal' union that I'm about to do is for my own purposes and certainly not what God has ordered for his people to do.
No saying, by any means, that getting legally married is wrong, it is not. But it is wrong to judge others on something that isn't even what God has ordained. So if the gay community want to get married....then it has no bearing whatsoever on religious people's marriage between them and their God and is most definetly no more 'wrong' than any of us getting married.

oh I wasn't attempting to correct you Des,
I actually agree with most of what you wrote - but I personally would have changed that little bit at the end...

I think like most things there was probably a 'version' of marriage before organised religion, although from what i have read it was more related to property rights than love, and then religion made it's way in as a form of 'control', saving the sinners from lustfully procreating. You cannot discuss gay marriage without discussing the influence religion has over the current debate, I am sure there are bigots out there who are not religious but even they still use that stupid argument that "god made adam and eve, not adam and steve" (insert guffaw here).

I have a galaxy but cant see a poll. Yes I support it. just because someone is gay doesnt make them an alien. They should get the same rights as straight people. Just like white people are not better than dark people we are all equal. (i am a white female married to a man just so people know) equal rights for all !

If we're talking legally, religion shouldn't even enter the discussion - religion and law are supposed to be separated here.
I do support the rights of gay people to marry because they should be treated as equal, adult Australians.
Marriage is not about procreation. We're talking about the legal contract here which does not have any conditions in relation to having children.
If I marry and don't have children with my future DH we will still have a kick a$$ marriage because we love and cherish each other.

I know some people worry expending the laws opens up marriages to be than polygamist or animals etc
There is only a few words that need to be changed from "between man and women" to "between two people"
