Gay Marriage: Here's what I think

Today I'm tackling a topic few want to discuss yet we should: gay marriage.

Gay Marriage:  All people are born with natural rights.  One natural right is the right to choose who we spend our time with.  One natural right is the right to choose who we marry.  It is not a natural right to tell other people who they can and cannot marry.  You don't have to agree with a person's lifestyle, yet you have no right to force other people to live the way the majority does.  So while this might surprise many of you, I believe gay people should have a right to marry if they so choose, and have all the benefits that go with marriage.  If the people of a state are adamantly opposed to "scarring" the institution of marriage, then I have no problem with some other method of allowing gay people the right to enter into some kind of union that allows them to share their assets.  

Gay rights:  Gay people have the same natural rights as anyone else.  See Gay Marriage.
