Comment from Alex Stone:
"I'm a Christian...
... and I have no problem with gay marriage. Sure, there are a couple of chapters in the Bible against homosexuality, but what on earth does religion have to do with getting married?
The only reason you get married in a church by a priest or pastor is to publicly recognize God's presence in your marriage.
I think many people forget that religion has nothing to do with getting married. You don't even have to have a ceremony. You can get married at a courthouse before a judge in 20 minutes if you wanted to.
I think if people are going to get upset about gay marriage, then they should get upset about any other marriage that decided not to have a religious ceremony.
The word of God is love. Responding to your own personal homophobia and then trying to bend the law around those feelings is not very WWJD.
That's all I have to say. Wanted to weigh in, since some people are being really negative about this and claiming their hatred in the name of God. It's people like that who steer people away from pursuing a relationship with God."
