Same Sex Marriage - Should They Have Rights?

Last Monday a three-judge panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit announced that the California's ban on same sex marriages would remain in place at least until December. Earlier in the month Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker in San Francisco struck down the state's ban on same-sex marriage.

Americans have changed their minds on many issues relating to homosexuality. They have moved some distance in terms of accepting gay marriage, but majorities in most polls still oppose it. Gallup asks its question this way: "Do you think marriages between same-sex couples should or should not be recognized by the law as valid, with the same rights as traditional marriages?" In May 44% (up from 27% when Gallup first asked the question in 1996) said they should be recognized as valid. But 53% in the new poll, (down from 68% in 1996) said they should not be.

This has been a heated topic for a number of years. Everyone wants to be treated equally. However, for many Christians, this is a subject that often is ignored because no one wants to verbally speak out what they know is right from wrong! How do you feel about all of this?
