why not what these people have done to you ???

Due to all our constitutions people have similar rights. Since being homosexual is unlike pedophilia not a crime, legal homosexual marriage needs to be introduced. Wether or not they will have the option to get married in church is not ours to decide since we are secular states, that is decision that needs to be done by the pope and other church leaders.

not what was done, but what will be. think wider.

Many petitions dealing with human sexuality will go before the 2016 General Conference.

No,because,after that they will ask the right to adopt children.

” Theorists including Calvin Thomas and Judith Butler have suggested that homophobia can be rooted in an individual’s fear of being identified as gay. Homophobia in men is correlated with insecurity about masculinity”

It’s a matter of equality, the basic human right. So answer is yes!

All EU states should recognise marriage equality. Equality, there’s a value that need to be rekindled. Russia (and other countries) are demonstrating some of the worst political decisions regarding human rights. I’m not sure it’s a democratic regime thats rulling in Russia.

Read  in the church and The United Methodist Church stance on sexuality.

Marriage????A contract could be enough!!Adoption should be banned!!

People, as your population is already decreasing many of the countries in EU (at least not increasing in noticeable phase), why EU will take this decision that will indirectly impact on population growth. If you people wanna extinct from earth like dodo, then EU is welcome.

Four out of five evangelical divorcees think marriage is sacred!

No. By no means. Marriage is between a woman and a man. Always has been, since the first Humans walked the earth, 200.000 years ago, or at least since Homo Sapiens showed up, 50.000 years ago. An informal contract, for most of he time, and and a formal contract, for the past millennia. And marriage has nothing to do with realigion, or God; it simply pre-dates it. Homossexuals have the right to get together, of course, and have most of the rights that a married couple have, except for child adoption. The homossexual love and the homossexual union should even be formally recognized by the society, if so they wish. Call it what you want; but marriage it is not and never will be, no matter what some decide to call it. What is equal should be treated as equal, and what is different should be treated as different. And, for crying out loud, don’t come up with the “modernist” and the – nowadays – politically correct, and sickening, homophobia theory crap to label the people that don’t think the same way. Every form of social engineering is extremely dangerous for society.

Only seven EU countries adopted gay marriage, out of 27

Let’s make a referendum and the masks will fall!

Is there even a debate? Who would even question this? Only people like the conservatives and fundamentalists like christian democratic Party in Germany. If they question such things and are debated, then after 10 seconds they have NO arguments against gay marriage equality than to say “our values”. There is NO debate. You should rather debate how we can stop European Union exporting weapons all over the place, how we can fix the refugee drama or deal with the impending doom resulting from the crash of the economy or the ecosystem or both.

Most definitely YES!!! Don’t be like the US.

marriage is about legal obligations and legal rights … anybody has the right to Justice! on marital issues! to ensure rights and obligations over his/her partnetner

my answer is YES , and lets make anyone called Astrit illegal :D

Not Romania! I hate when EU decide for a single country. EU it’s a good Project but let’s remember we are so different cultures…with so different languages and history. We will never be like the USA…because we can’t. If EU wants to create a dictatorship over member countryes then someday will be another bloody revolution. Since we descover democracy in 1989 we got our industry destroyed by foreigners. Our nature destroyed by foreigners and so on…nothing good happened since 1989..only the fact that u are free to move. Wake up EU..wake up or die someday like any regime
