I have religious beliefs that say we are to love God and our fellow man as ourselves. That seems to be universally accepted. However, The Bible also states in Corinthians 14:34, that "women shall not speak in church." I do not believe that it is God's will that women not teach and speak in His church. Many verses in the Bible must be looked at with an understanding that some verses have been translated through the centuries in an incorrect way. For those who want to deny gay people the right to marry based on religious beliefs that come from Bible verses, they should reconsider based on the above mentioned verse that is one example of verses in question. Also, heterosexual marriage is not based on the notion that married couples must have children, so this argument is false.
