Will Singapore ever follow suit? Would you see the day when you son marries a male or your daughter marries a female?

If my son wants to marry a man and my daughter wants to marry a woman, so be it as long as he/she is happy. These couples work and pay taxes and so should be eligible for the common rights/benefits just like the others.

They are already enjoying equal rights/benefits just like any other, in area where sexuality doesn't matter. e.g. voting, employment, etc..

Marriage is an institution designed for couples of opposite sex to form a family and create a conductive environment to nurture offspring.

Since gay are defective in sexual orientation, they are not entitled to marriage where attraction to the opposite sex is a pre-requisite.

It's just like parents without kids are not entitled to baby bonus. No need to argue.

They should just do what they do in private instead of challenging social norms and no one will bother them.

There are already demands from people to get married to their hand phones.

Good point and food for thought.

In the union of man and animal, the man works and pays taxes and in the union of brother and sister, they both work and pay taxes and Obama says "love is love" so does it mean it should be legalised? Law of nature is not law? :? wow... How about union of father and daughter or mother and son?.....love is love what....

The words "love is love" is misleading to many young and naive minds and it is irresponsible for Obama to say that as it applies to above as well. This wide-spread legalisation in US is not about liberation of human rights, it is about declaration of war against nature.

If we study the reasons used in driving this in USA, it traces back to teen gay suicides which are obviously cited to blackmail most people's emotions and lose their rationality.

To me, the real cause of suicides is kids were not taught to learn how to stand up against pressure. There are many reasons causing teens to take their lives and every reason is only the perceived trigger and can we eliminate every trigger? What if the gay teen committed suicide because his partner jilted him? Come up with a law to address it? Send the partner to jail? What if exam stress caused the teen suicide? Come up with a law to abolish exams? The main reason behind suicides is a weak and poor perception of inner self, that is the real killer. We make too many excuses in life in the name of human rights. At best, this new ruling in US displays the human weakness at play and a new self-found Godliness creeping into our DNA.

If we continue to break Nature's law, our very act will haunt us one day.... Just we wait and perhaps more suicides await us because this is not like a bully pressure parents can coach kids to be strong... this is something against law of nature but approved by human law so how many parents know how to deal with their kids with such conflicting principles? :scared:

Paedophiles are asking for the same rights as homosexuals.

Not entirely correct. For example, applying for a HDB flat, tax, maintenance obligations etc.

Marriage is an institution designed for couples of opposite sex to form a family and create a conductive environment to nurture offspring.

From a religious standpoint, yes. From a legal standpoint, not necessarily true.

Since gay are defective in sexual orientation, they are not entitled to marriage where attraction to the opposite sex is a pre-requisite.

It's just like parents without kids are not entitled to baby bonus. No need to argue.

They should just do what they do in private instead of challenging social norms and no one will bother them.

It does not follow that there must be sex in a family unit. I only realized this when I saw same sex couples way past their biological libido age forming family units.

Maybe if people are not too pre-occupied with sex, they may be able to see it from a different perspective. Not that the gays etc are necessarily not too pre-occupied with sex...

The word "marriage" is already too loaded. Personally, I would prefer to expunge marriage as a legal institution and replace it with a civil union, one form of which can be a traditional marriage. This will take the religious elements out of what can or cannot form a legal family unit with the corresponding legal rights and obligations that come with being in such a legal family unit.
