    If someone says ‘marriage has nothing to do with love,’ all I can say is, if that’s something you can say about your own marriage, I feel sorry for you if you got brainwashed into a bunch of bad teachings.

    On the Catholic church and marriage in general, I think it’s kind of a bad idea for a bunch of celibate men to be telling people what marriage is supposed to be about.

    I only watched a few minute of that. I don’t believe that any religion, it’s leaders or followers, has the right to TELL the US, or a state, government what it can legalize. If people vote for or against marriage equality, then that would be citizens exercising THEIR rights.

    The details of a marriage are whatever the people in it agree that they are.

    MaryL, you’re right as far as you go, but you don’t go far enough. In the U.S., people aren’t supposed to put other people’s rights to a vote. The Supreme Court, in Loving vs. Virginia, defined marriage is “a basic civil right.” That’s why California’s Prop 8 was overturned (hopefully the Supreme Court will uphold that ruling.)
