“If you don’t like gay marriage, don’t get one”

“If you don’t like gay marriage, don’t get/have one” is a slogan that has been on many gift items, such as those from Zazzle.com and CafePress. The pro-gay marriage saying has been cited in print since at least 2003.

It’s not as if gay people will use up all the marriage licenses, and, well, if you don’t like gay marriage, don’t marry a gay.

Its a matter of civil rights.Like abortions.If you don’t like abortions,then don’t get one.If you don’t like gay marriages,then don’t marry someone who is the same sex as you are.Simple as that.

Please let me give you an old man’s advice; if you dont like gay marriage, don’t marry a gay. If you don’t like porn, don’t watch it. If you don’t like abortion, don’t get one. I f you don’t like pot, don’t smoke it. But please keep your narrow-minded, intolerant views away from my private life.

Gay marriage: Time to act for equality
01:00 AM EST on Thursday, March 1, 2007
Most State House bigwigs don’t want to do it. But I endorse the message on a sign I saw recently: “IF YOU DON’T LIKE GAY MARRIAGE, DON’T MARRY A GAY!”

6 Down 44 to Go.
And now the major state of New York will join the 4 other new England states and the lonely Midwestern state in the equality of all people. Gay people can now marry freely (In a month if you want to technical). This again a very important step in full equality, and I hope I can soon says “All 50 down, No left to go”. I want full marriage not just civil unions that make Gay people continue to seem inferior to straight people. When i was going throw NY to come back to Montreal I saw a sign that said “If you Don’t like Gay marriage don’t get gay married.” How true if you don’t like it don’t do it.
