In response to the South Suburban Patch network's poll, several Patch commenters opened up a debate.
, from Oak Lawn Patch, writes:
"You can't make gay marriage illegal because it's a sin. ... What about the rest of the sins that are currently not illegal? Gluttony is a perfect example. If gay marriage is going to be illegal on the grounds of it being a sin, then it should be illegal to be overweight."
, from Homewood-Flossmoor Patch, writes:
"I believe in small government. I believe government should stay out of our bedrooms and out of our decisions over our own bodies. I believe that without choice there is no freedom. I believe every person should have the right to choose."
, from Oak Forest Patch, writes:
"The problem for me with gay marriage is what it then leads to. The wanting to 'adopt' kids, and raise them in an unnatural environment."
