" in Judaism, although views may vary among denominations of Judaism, there isn't any specific stance on gay marriage that I know of. What I do know, though, is that we have faced persecution, just as the LGBT community has faced recently. Our desire to practice Judaism in whatever ways we choose is no one else's business, and the desire to marry whoever one pleases is also no one else's business. When you look at the "issue" of same-sex marriage that way, as a personal matter rather than a public decision, it seems pretty simple to me. You wouldn't want to be told to practice a religion in which you don't believe, so why should same-sex couples be told they can't practice their right to be in love?"
