    iReport Debate: What’s your top issue?

    Same-Sex marriage


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Shelagal shared her thoughts on why LGBTQ equality is her top issue in the 2012 U.S. elections. 'I believe that everyone deserves to be treated like a human being. One type of love shouldn't be valued more than another,' she said. 'I would like to see DOMA repealed, and then the legalization nationwide of same-sex marriage, allowing churches and religious institutions to decide whether or no they want to marry same-sex couples so they have a choice. I think their marriage and love should be recognized no matter what state they're in.'
    - jmsaba, CNN iReport producer

    Hi, my name is Jean, I have many friends who are gay and bisexual and I wonder, why are they not fit to get married? Do they not love, are they not human? What if we don't force a church to marry them, but instead ask one that will if we make it legal? I know this isn't the most important topic at this time, but I feel it should be heard too.
