How does your religion address the issue of same-sex marriage?

from Indianapolis Star: Faith Forum: 3-6-2011

A bill before the Indiana legisla­ture would amend the state con­stitution to ban same-sex mar­riage.
During hearings about the bill, sup­porters said it would preserve values; op­ponents said it would codify discrimina­tion. Some people believe that homosexuality is immoral and that same­-sex marriages should not be permitted.
Others argue that same-sex marriage should be permitted because everyone has the right to be treated equally.
Which teachings in your faith tradition offer guidance?
