WASHINGTON, D.C. – With the U.S. Supreme Court talking gay marriage, many people showed their support by uploading the Human Right Campaign’s logo for marriage equality.

It came in slightly varied forms, but the message was the same. Now whether you’re for it, or against it, that’s a whole other thing. But there’s some interesting numbers that came from Facebook.

Facebook says that on March 26, 2013, when the HRC asked gay marriage supporters to ‘paint the town red’ with their new logo, they saw a record number of uploads. Nearly three million people uploaded the symbol. Facebook says profile photo uploads went up by 120%.

Sure gay marriage is a divided issue in our country, but if social media is any indicator, maybe it means something just might change.

    God says Marriage is only between a man and a woman Gen 1:26 Gen 1:24 same-sex marriage is not ok in any circumstances. 1 cor 6:9-11; God says do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inheirit the kingdom of God, be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the coveteous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers , shall not inherit the kingdom of God. God laws are not to be broken. for people to support same sex marriage is not right. i am standing for prop 8. God does not allow sin in heaven where He lives, and if people just realize that God loves everyone He is waiting for people to repent of all of their sins and to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior of their lives rom 10:9-10 and John 14:6 jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, no man can come to the Father but through me i do not support same sex marriage. Jesus died for man to be reconciled back to God because sins separated man from God when adam and eve sinned in the garden.Gen 3 Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed for the sin of homosexuality and lesbianism, Gen 17,18, 19.

    It doesn't matter what the bible said. All that happened some time ago and there's no actual proof that he refuses gays other than what a book said. Not being atheist, i am a baptist, but still.
