Oh, no, was it a shotgun wedding? The bride got knocked up before the wedding?

Marriage is a religious institution. It was invented by religions.

Civil unions are a civil matter.

The gays can have civil unions not marriages.

congrats i’m all for gay marriage YA’LL STOP WITH ALL THE HATEFUL COMMENTS if you don’t agree with gay marriage don’t read it and post mean stuff

wow, i wasn’t aware there were so many non-gay people who were into celebrity gossip. this is news to me, as celebrity gossip is the number one gay passtime one can participate in while fully clothed, the a-holes doth protest too much, me thinks. we’re takin over the world, suckas.

Her wife? Ridiculous! Agree with #27.

@wrong: Actually wrong, you’re wrong.
Marriage was invented for the proper distribution of property – meaning land and other chattel which included the women involved in the marriage. Marriages were for the convenience of the men, not the women. Marriages were arranged to enlarge property holdings – to join two or more families who wanted to enlarge their wealth. Love had little, if anything, to do with these unions. Marriages prevented just any old man from coming along and asserting rights to the property of a man he may claim to call “daddy.”
The early church knew that marriage was a man-made, civil institution and wanted little to do with it.
It wasn’t until 1215 that the church declared marriage a sacrament and set up a system of canon law around it. So don’t be fooled by those who claim God invented marriage – it took centuries for the church to put its claim on it.

congratulations, Wanda Sykes. your twins must be very nice….

“@stars pushing for gay marriage: is this comment a joke? what about single mothers? what about people who use sperm donors to conceive?”

Yes, if single mothers deny their children their biological fathers on purpose, for selfish reasons, then they also condone and encourage men to abandon their children.

hetero couples that use sperm donations from a 3rd party are extremely rare, and they don’t do it as their first and only option for having children. They have tried at least one other option (their own sex), and probably at least one or two others before using external donors. It is not their first and only choice. Yet, they too, condone men that are willing to abandon their children. IMO, men should donate sperm only under extreme circumstances, after much thought about what their actions actually mean, and preferrably with a couple that they know and trust. No one should casually abandon their potential children to people they don’t or will never know.

Congratulations to the happy family. Glad to hear all are well. Wanda killed at the White House Correspondents dinner. I say try Rush for treason.

gay people hate God and people who believe in God so would someone please explain why gay people need a religious ceremony?

Marriage is a legal contract between two people and the STATE, the marriage ceremony is a ceremony between a man and woman and God.

For all the prejudice people leaving nasty comments about gay marriage. NEW FLASH! Gay people are slowly but surely winning the battle. The same way it took a decent amount of time for blacks to be allowed to marry whites, homosexuals will have their day. So SHUT UP.

Congrats to Wanda and Alex!
I hope the babies are happy and healthy and the couple is happy!

It’s unbelievable that people hang on so intensely to the “GOD and marriage” thing. It sounds like mostly “Christian” people that are being such bigots here and I remind you that YOUR prophet, Jesus, preached that his father was LOVE. God is LOVE. Jesus did not preach anything about marriage or about it having to be between a man and woman.

The Catholic church is the institution that brought about all the many rules that you embrace so heartily. This is the same church that ignores that pedophiles hurt children under their roofs and just moves them to another location. This is the same church that is still so chauvinistic, that not only can women not be of the cloth there, but if a priest has anything to do with a woman it means he is cast out. But goodness gracious, be good and get married “in God’s eyes” because surely God cares what the church considers to be marriage or not. Just like I’m sure he was all for hundreds of thousands of people being killed throughout history “in his name.”

#37 – you are disgusting! What a horrible thing to wish on innocent babies. You are obviously mentally ill.

Everyone needs to stop being so goddamn hateful. People should be free to love whomever they choose regardless of sex. Don’t like it? Fine, but stfu about it and keep your hate to yourself. You’re only making yourself look ignorant.

@h.:

your practically a bumper sticker, God is Love. I suggest you try reading the Bible before you try to tell others what’s in it.

Try the Biblical word: abomination. thats Biblical for GAYS.

@Tanda: Tanda I was thinking the same thing. Everyone deserves to be happy. Go Wanda and Alex…screw all you judgmental people.

Just cause gay Barry’s in the WH doesn’t mean he’s gonna cram this down our throats.

Why are there so many bigots here? IT’S DISGUSTING.

If you don’t want gay marriage, DON’T GET MARRIED.

Why all the fear? You people that leave comments slamming Wanda, her wife and kids need to have your head examined. Did she do anything to you? NO! So get over it.

People against gay marriage are bigots. Period. Have your stupid, narrow-minded heads examined.

All the people claiming that marriage should be between man and woman are sure spewing out a lot of hate given that this concept was taken from the bible; a book that tells us to have compassion and to love your neighbor.

You should be ashamed at how judgmental, cruel and ignorant you are.

Congratulations Wanda! :)

Good work, Calvin, and totally accurate response to the religious quarters that marriage is theirs and theirs alone.

People, before you lay claim to marriage as a purely religious institution, do your damn homework. And by that I mean RESEARCH, not what you heard someone else say one time. Conventional Wisdom is nothing in comparison to careful, methodical research.

The gays, as far as I know, are not storming the church doors demanding that religions grant them a religious service. That’s what’s great about the separation of church and state — it’s there for the protection of both sides. The gays have been given the secular right to a marriage contract and all the benefits that state entails, and good for them. But as far as I know, there’s been NO action by the state to force any church to bless a gay marriage.

A lot of people are confused, because there are denominations in any faith that DO allow gay marriage. I can’t get involved in a uber-conservative sect’s objection to a very liberal sect within the same religion blessing gay marriages, because that sort of interfighting in religion is as old as time. But — it’s a marriage, even if it’s secular. And they’re allowed to have a marriage ceremony.

The twins’ll be fine, or just as fine as any other children born into this society. And the religious… Sigh, I don’t know. Maybe read your holy texts and try to interpret it without help. Because I’m pretty sure Jesus doesn’t care about baning shellfish, and pretty sure he doesn’t want to stone your children, or lots of those other Old Testament stuff.

@Tom: So much hate. Karma’s a b*tch.

Congratulations, Wanda!

It’s sad to see all the racists leaving comments.

God, what’s with all the hate and judgment?
Calvin, Lizbeth and h. – thank you for speaking up!

Leviticus also claims that eating shellfish is an abomination (which at least makes more sense, since it’s killing), that slavery is fine and dandy and that people should be stoned to death for committing adultery. And it technically doesn’t say anything about a woman laying with a woman.

Stop with all the judgment already. God did not assign you to preach hate. Grow up and enter the 21st century.

The twins will be fine. The answer to the “problem” is to STOP the ridicule and discrimination. It reflects a problem with society, not with homosexual/lesbian parents.

Congrats to Wanda and Alex for the new addition to their family!

Congratulations to Wanda and her wife!!! It is always a blessed event when people who want and can afford children become parents…
