"As a Baptist minister, I don't have the right to impose my views on anyone else. If committed gay and lesbian couples want to marry, that is their business; none of us should stand in their way," – Rev. Al Sharpton.

You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together." So according to the bible you are not allowed to wear clothes made with two different materials. Which means you would not be allowed to wear a t-shirt made with half cotton and half polyester.

No one should have their rights taken from them. Equality, love, and knowing that it’s right have led me to support same sex marriages. One day, maybe we can all be treated equally.
