  • well i dont seem to understand whats wrong with it if you fall in love you fall in love u could marry a tree for all i care
  • Depends on what your morals are based on.
  • That depends on your morals. I do like the idea that same sex couples w/children will now have equal rights when it comes to those children.
  • Of course it's morally correct. It's as morally correct as regular marriage is. Who is hurt by it?
  • Is giving equal rights to all US citizens "morally correct?" Absolutely. Anything else would be discriminatory.
  • What on earth could anyone have against it?
  • I think gay marriage is just as acceptable as hetero marriage.
  • In the US it is wrong to extend a right or privileged to one group or individual while refusing it to another group or individual with out showing just cause. I have yet to see just cause.
  • "Morally" no...but who is to judge? People just others by their actions God judges people by their intentions, and only he knows them. Its a decision that is understood the minute they realize they are "gay"...and from them on they understand....so its between Them and God... We have no say as people, so anybody who does...needs to leave it alone. They already know.
  • Who are we to judge that?? We are not the Morality Police!
  • No it isn't.
  • it's not necessarily morally correct, but there is definitely nothing that could be wrong about it either. It's wrong for people to fight against gay marriage and they clearly don't understand. People also don't really choose to be gay, it's a born interest, like if something tastes or smells better. It's nobody's fault and it's not wrong. It's more wrong for people to be against gays than to actually be gay.
  • In America it should be considered morally wrong to deny someone the pursuit of happiness, especially when they have no intention whatsoever of hurting anyone.
  • It depends on your faith. According to the Christian Faith, homosexuality is a sin - which would state a homosexual marriage as also a sin. In the end it is a personal choice though. No one has the right to discriminate or judge but God alone.
  • Not to me.
  • Yes, if two people are in love why try and wreck their happiness..:)
  • Oh yes. I don't think that it is moral for states to prevent same sex marriages.
  • Although I don't believe in absolute morals, I see nothing wrong with it
  • Full marriage rights for people regardless of their genders or sexual orientation is morally correct. If any marriage isn't morally correct, it might be one where one person has lied to the other in order to get married for their own devious benefit. I guess the most common example of that would be where one person makes the other think that they love them when they don't, so that through marriage they can gain access to what that person has.
  • No more so or less than any marriage that is not forced.
  • since there is no universal moral right or wrong, I guess that is up to the individual to decide. Laws are not necessarily moral so much as ethical..there is a diference between the two. And laws and ethics and even morals can change over time. So in essence the only standing morality is that of the individual and if enough people feel for or against it morally then it becomes ethical, then it either becomes legal or illegal depending on how it is viewed by the masses and if they feel it needs to be a matter of law. Myself I feel it is anyone's right to marry another human being of whatevr sex they choose. IT doesn't concern me, it has no implications in my life, as I see it, the institution of marriage is a failed archaic ideal anyways..if people want to get married and be miserable, let them. I don't see anything gained from amrriage that two people can't have in a relationship, so have at it.
  • I have a hard enough time figuring out my own morals, much less someone elses. If people are in love, consenting adults that treat each other good and do good in this world...then I say GO FOR IT! Be happy and be in love! (and set me up with your cute cousin from out of town at the wedding!) haha
  • Last time I answered a question similar to this I got down-rated! =) Still... I don't really believe in transcending universal morals. I think we have to accept a certain amount of cultural relatvisim with regards to certain beliefs. As such, I wouldn't criticise people of religions which hold gay marriage (and gay relationships for that matter) to be morally wrong. They are more than entitled to those beliefs and I respect them. However - I have my own moral and ethical code. I believe that gay marriage is *completely* morally correct. I believe gay people should be allowed to have their relationship recognised by the government in some kind of civil union/marriage. Definitely. By my own code, not recognising gay relationships in the same manner as those between straight people is wrong.
  • Oh my god...of course. I'm a strong advocate for gay marriage. And as a young Californian I was ashamed when gay marriage was vetoed. In fact the oppsite is true. It is morally wrong to deny same sex couples the right to wed.
  • I say let them do what they feel in their heart,soul,and mind to do. Morals are decided by people who believe in one way. Now just because another group of people believe in things differently doesn't make it morally incorrect. The gays may say is straight marriage morally correct? I may not be homosexaul, but I have never had anything against gay marriage or homosexual individuals. And I will never have anything against them.
  • Besides the bible (that also says you can stone your children for disobeying) their is no reason to be. I do not see how to people trying to create a safe and heathy enviorment to grow up in effects familes.
  • It depends on your morals, I think so, though I am gay.
  • I don't think it's a question of morality, personally. I believe that it is morally incorrect to impose one's morals on someone else, where differing morals do not negatively impact anyone's way of life. Disallowing gay marriage won't stop people from being gay. It only stops them from being treated equally in the eyes of the law. Why not stop blondes from marrying other blondes? We have laws that protect interracial marriage; gay marriage is no different. Just because some fools believe it's wrong, doesn't make it wrong.
  • Look two people should be able to form a partnership without fear of prosecution or prejudice or whatever.The p-roblem that the gay community has done to itself is that it has pushed it profile into the public domain instead of just quietly getting on with its life just like hetros do. Now who sets the morals? not me boss because I cant.Gay ppl have the same standards that I have.Some of them are smut some not.As for marriage its a contract nothing more, nothing less.I have no gay friends anymore,wish I did they enhaced my families life!!
  • There are many non morally marriages, such as marrying for money, this one I have no answer to, we each have to make our own decisions on what is or is not for ourselves.
  • If certain people would spend LESS time worrying about other people's love life and who they are going to marry .... ... And; worry about the problems and situations in their OWN Home and family ect .... wouldn't it be a Happier World ? Of Course; Same Sex marriage is Morrally CORRECT and NO ONE has yet to PROVE that it isn't .....
  • Depends on who's moral yardstick you are using!
  • Wow a loaded question. I have no clue. Thats my answer
  • Who's morals are we talking about? Mine, Nope!
  • In my opinion it is morally correct. Nobody is hurt by it, and it helps cement the relationship between a happy couple.
  • For myself, it isn't morally correct. Other people can do what they want. I only object, when they bring children into their gay relationship. Then it is no longer just about them. I know some kids, who are growing up with a same sex couple, who live together and I feel sorry for those kids. They long for a natural family, with a mom and a dad and spend as much time as they can visiting people with that kind of a family. They hate to go home.
  • I believe it is a violation of the word because I believe marriage is a religious rite not a civil right as the gay community claims. if they wanted legal equality then all they have to do is ask for civil unions with all the legal standing marriage and most americans would vote yes... but since they demand the use of the word marriage they are being stopped. I know there are many who would like have civil unions which with the same legal standing as marriage but their desires are blocked by the efforts of those fighting for marriage, kinda like how PETA hurts animal rights by going on crusades so when the more moderate people talk animal rights they are lumped in with the extremists.
  • NO one has the rights to judge what is morally or politically correct but if a person feels wrong in what they are doing, then by all means that person should reconsider what they are doing. Everyone has an opinion or answer in reference to your question which would certainly cause much debate and get us all thinking, which is a good thing about these type of questions. I really do not know how to answer this because morals get changed every day to make us feel better about ourselves in the things we do, no matter if it is christians, or atheist, gay marriage, abortions, etc,,,
  • In my view people of the same sex who commit themselves to sharing the responsibilities of married people should be accorded the rights of married people. I have my doubts about terminology. I think that the word 'marriage' in this context is unnecessarily inflammatory in a country like America which appears to those of us living elsewhere to be jam-packed full of illiberal christian bigots who wish to impose their moral code on believers and unbelievers alike. Except for gay christians who have to cope with significant cognitive dissonance anyway, a term such as contract of domestic partnership, which simply transferred the rights and responsibilities of married heterosexual couples to any couple who chose to accept them would seem to me be less inflammatory, but would achieve the desired effect of publicly asserting the commitment of the couple while establishing their property rights unequivocally. I take the conservative view that you cannot be a christian, be gay, and be married in the eyes of the church to a member of the same sex, but as I am not a christian, this fact is irrelevant to my own desires and behaviour. In conclusion I note that in Britain religious marriage is always accompanied by a civil ceremony without which the marriage is invalid in law. Since the primary legal function of marriage is a formal contract to do with the disposition of property to spouse and heirs, there is really no reason in logic why a contract of domestic partnership should not be referred to as a marriage, but we live in an intolerant world. I see no objection to the principle of gay marriage; but I do have my doubts about the wisdom of using the term 'gay marriage' at this time.
  • everybody have own moral-in my views who drink wine n do sex with others is most immoral person but in usa women drink wine gambling too.understand?5
  • Even having read that anyone who shared with you guys that their belief is that it is immoral for two people of the same sex to marry, was either downrated or had unnecessary comments, I am still going to share my opinion because that is what this site is about. Irregardless of the titty babies who cannot allow others their right to their own personal opinions without acting out but wants everyone to respect theirs. I do think it is immoral. You can downrate, rant or do what you do but I believe it is immoral. Do I think there should be bans on gay marriage? No. I do not think anyone has the right to tell us who we can share our lives with. As a God fearing woman I believe He loves us all, not just us straights and I am amazed they get by with the ban. I may find gay marriage immoral but that does not mean I have the right to prevent two people from being together because of MY personal belief. Where will the line be drawn if the law is allowed to interrupt and dictate our freaking love lives and who we have as life partners??? Hell, I think my neighbors allowing their cats' food dish up on the counter is quite ick but I would not want to cause harm to them or dictate who they should be with. I do not think anyone should have the right to prevent two people of the same sex from marrying. I would not want anyone telling me who I could or could not be with and I do not find it acceptable that it is done irregardless what our personal beliefs are. It is a God given right to us to have life partners and I would not want to rob anyone out of such a gift. I do not think same sexes should be together like that but I also know it is not my right to decide such things nor should it be the right of a court of law. If I were to have a child and it came to me one day and said it was gay, I would love it no matter what... even not agreeing that it is the right way to live. I have no right judging others for something I do not completely understand nor do I have the right to judge others as if I, myself, do not ever do things that are not of good morale. Every single one of us should fight for equality because whether you are gay, straight or sideways.. we are all equals, in agreeance or not.
