Should gay marriage be legalized?

ABC-36 asked the question to many people in and around Jackson County, and received a lot of different answers.

"For me, it's not something I support. But I don't judge those people. We're good to those people and we take care of those people just the same," said Linda Isaacs, owner of Whistle Stop Gas & Grocery in Sand Gap.

"I don't think that they should be allowed to get married. I don't think they should even be allowed to live together. I think they ought to be separated," said Jackson County native Thomas Jones.

"I don't care if they wanna live together; get married; sing. But I don't believe that they should be able to adopt," said Madison County resident Cathy Romero.

Some people said they agree with gay marriage, but wouldn't admit it on camera.

The US Supreme Court heard arguments surrounding two separate gay marriage laws Tuesday and Wednesday. Their decision is expected to be made later this year.
