Alcoholism is a disease. It impairs one's ability to function in society, hold a job, contribute to a marriage/family, and survive. It kills by destroying livers and contributing to automobile accidents.<quoted text>
Neither is alcoholism a crime, but we can all agree that it is wrong.
Homosexuality is not a disease. In and of itself it destroys nothing. The negative reactions to homosexuality cause most of the harm that comes from homosexuality.
