I will be the first person to say that marriages are a religious thing. That being said government has always extended the courtesy of recognizing those marriages with certain rights.
If a gay couple were to be married in the "Church of the Grand Sapghetti Monster" that is fine. The Grand Spaghetti Monster can recognize all he wants. The God I worship says very specifically that this is a sin and as such is wrong. I am also taught to hate the sin and love the sinner. In other words, it is up to God to decide if S/He recognizes the union.
I think Government should recognize the marriage the same as any other. Marriage is a good thing (most of the time) and I think that a gay couple who is married should be able to adopt a child as well.
Lord knows I have gay friends who would make a heck of a lot better parents than a lot of straight people I know.
Much Like Abortion this is a religious issue.
