Another gay marriage thread.

Of course, many people will be angry when someone tries to alter a fundamental aspect of their life and society by altering the context of "marriages".
It is similar to the outrage expressed at Polygamists. By altering the conventional framework of "marriage" they challenge mainstream beliefs on ethical, societal and spiritual levels.
Let gay people be gay, good on them. Do they qualify to get "married" in the conventional sense? No.
