Montana Split On Gay Marriage Rights |Gay News|Gay Blog Towleroad

While the people of Montana, most of them at least, agree that gay partners should have equal rights as straight partners, they do not agree thay should be able to marry.
 

Sixty-two percent of voters 'want same-sex couples to have legal equality, but 51 percent still oppose marriage equality."

 

"It's incredible to me that people get so hung up on terms -- they're willing to give gay people equal rights, but want to call it something else. How about sexual segregation?"

Vindy.com - Road to marriage equality

Vindy.com - Road to marriage equality | Gay Rights Are Human Rights | Scoop.it

While Equality has begun in many parts of the country, homosexuals still face discrimination from a vast amount of people. The biggest discrimination being doma. Doma states that even if a couple live in a state that legalized same sex marriage, they will still recieve no benifits. While this act is not going anywhere anytime soon, the christians are changing their view. With the more young christians coming of age the approval rating is nearly half for them in favor of gay marriage. That argument is quickly fading. 

Despite discrimination and odds, marriage equality is coming.

Allowing gay people to marry is the right thing to do | NMPolitics.net

There are two main arguments against gay marraige
1.God forbids homosexual marriage
2.Gay marraige will destroy the institution of family and thus the whole foundation of society will fall apart

Well issues with argument number one-
What happened to freedom of religion? The gay people who are wanting to get married are not evil, they simply want their rights. The constitution should protect those rights.

issues with argument number two-
This argument lacks scientific evidence. Children of homosexuals go out to be healthy members of society. One study has actually proven that children of lesbian couples have less behavior issues than children of straight couples.

Gay people deserve to have rights just as anyone else does.

However in 1993 a group of same sex couples sued the state for refusing to issue them marriage certificates. They lost and in 1998 an amendment to the constitution was made to make marriage only valid between a man and a woman. However in February of this year Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed a civil union bill giving homeosexual partners equal protection.

Obama: New York's gay marriage vote 'a good thing'

Obama: New York's gay marriage vote 'a good thing' | Gay Rights Are Human Rights | Scoop.it

"President Obama simply won't take a position on gay marriage, no matter how many times reporters ask him."

 However, despite constant efforts to get Obama to voicce his oppinion when sayingted "a profound recognition on the part of the American people" that gays "have got to be treated like every other American. I think that principle will win out." He goes on to say that he feels as though America is moving to a time of greater equality. Obama is also for a new program that would give benifits to the partners of those in the military. 

While he does seem to be trying to move in the right direction he does get backlash for not outright saying he is for gay rights. Would it be acceptable to leave it to the states to decide if interracial marriage should be allowed or if women could vote?
