I don't think that it's a big deal if gay people can't get married. There are far more important issues to worry about in the world today, besides gay marriage, IMO.
It's not like two same sex people can procreate and raise a family. If the whole world suddenly turned gay, the human race would go extinct.
My views are not based on any religion, they're based on science. You need a man and a woman to make a baby and two gay married people don't do anything to preserve the human race, and they shouldn't be given the title of "married", because it just confuses things, as marriage has always traditionally been between a man and a woman, even if BR managed to dig up something vague and unproven on Wiki. I'm ok with the title of "civil union" for two gay people.
In a marriage, there's a wife and a husband. I don't want to meet two dudes at a party and some guy presents their significant other as their wife, that would be extremely lame. Let them have a civil union, and then they can say that that is their partner. That's less awkward and less confusing.
And before somebody jumps on me, and accuses me of something, I will say that I don't give a crap at all as to who people choose to screw and I don't discriminate against any gay people, unless they personally sexually harass me. I will say that I am disappointed in many liberal gay people who seem to always defend Islam, and I would advise that those people move to someplace like Iran, where they would very likely find themselves hanging from a crane.
