You need to go to church to live a REAL life of what marriage is - sexual EQUALITY OF 1 MAN AND 1 WOMAN. Your life is full fantasy and sex discrimination of man-man and woman and woman. Now where is sexual equality in that?
there is no sexual equality in that. By the way, the Bible doesn't say that homosexuality is a sin (unless you are Jewish)
sorry,

While standing peacefully in front of an abortion mill, praying the rosary, some one walked by and heard us praying, "Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death." They promptly went home and emailed our group saying that we had called them a sinner. They only hear what they want to hear.

They can murder their babies if they want to. It's the law.

The argument that homosexuals are “born that way” has led to a quest for a homosexual gene. Three research projects have been commonly misinterpreted to support that conclusion, namely those of Dr. Simon LeVay, Drs. J. Michael Bailey and Richard C. Pillard, and Dr. Dean Hamer.
The Catholic Medical Association summarizes the facts in Homosexuality and Hope:
The media have promoted the idea that a “gay gene” has already been discovered…but, in spite of several attempts, none of the much-publicized studies… has been scientifically replicated. A number of authors have carefully reviewed these studies and found that not only do the studies not prove a genetic basis for same-sex attraction; the reports do not even contain such claims…
If same-sex attraction were genetically determined, then one would expect identical twins to be identical in their sexual attractions. There are, however, numerous reports of identical twins who are not identical in their sexual attractions.

I believe it's more developmental. A homosexual man's brain is more similar to a heterosexual woman's brain than it is to a heterosexual man's brain. Likewise with lesbians. So it's more of a mixture of things rather than one in particular.

Disagree, a heterosexual man's brain is in the head of his cock, while a homosexual man's brain is in the head of his boyfriends cock.

Why do they use the word gay for homosexuals? It is not the homosexual that God hates, it's the sin of homosexuality that God hates. Just think what homosexuals do for their sexual pleasure. And now they want to destroy the moral fiber of marriager. Ha. They will be judged in their own time.

Oh my! Hun, the STR8 community has already destoryed the 'moral fiber' of marriage with the child abuse, spousal abuse, domestic violence, Vegas 5 minute weddings. Do we need to list more. I think you get the idea.

What gays do for their sexual pleasure is the same as what straights do for their sexual pleasure.
All the same "acts" occur in both communities. There are more straight people having oral and anal sex than there are gay men in the gay community.

When gays attack straights we use 17 year old girls and ketchup.
When straights attack gays they use Texas Police Officers, blunt objects and handcuffs.

Gee, the same group protested right on the corner of George and RT 30. The whole time screaming "fags" and dykes at anyone who happened to have an equality sticker, rainbow flag or the like attached to thier car.

The idiot "traditionalists" are true traditionalists. It's very traditional of the church(es) to spread hate and intolerance of those who are different.

I for one, am glad that the protestors finally got a taste of the medicine they've been dishing out over the past few centuries.

Problem is, fundies don't like a taste of thier own medicine. They'd rather adminster it.

Excuse me? God did NOT make you gay. God gives us all freedom of choice. This is a choice YOU made. It is not a Catholic, Mormom, or any other denomination rule. It is God's rule. So don't lay your guilt, on God's shoulders, although He would gladly take it from you if you asked.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
Here's a clue, for those who speculate as to whether or not homosexuality is genetic or not: Leave the science to the scientists, not the christian fundamentalists who have a proven track record of distorting facts to control thier "sheeple".
This is from CH. 6 of "Human Genetics" by Ricki Lewis, pp 113 and 114:
Is Homosexuality Inherited?
No one really knows why we have feelings of belonging to one gender or the other, but these feelings are intense. Bioethics: Choices for the future describes people who's gender identigy persists even after surgery alters thier phenotype so that it doesn't match the sex chromosomes.
In homosexuality, a person's phenotype and genotype are consistent and physical attraction is toward members of the same sex. Homosexuality is seen in all cultures and has been observed for thousands of years. It has been documented in more than 500 animal species.
Evidence is accumulating that homosexuality is at least, partially inherited. Earlier studies cite the feelings that homosexual individuals have as young children, well before they know of the existence or the meaning of the term. Identical twins are more likely to be both homosexual, than are both members of fraternal same sex twin pairs. Also, two brain areas are of different sizes in homosexual versus heterosexual men.
Research into the inheritence of homosexuality is controversial. In 1993, National Cancier Institute researcher Dean Hamer traced the inheritance of five genetic markers on the X chromosome on 40 pairs of homosexual brothers. Although these DNA sequences are highly variable in the general population, they were identical in 33 of the sibling pairs [ out of 40]. Hamer interpereted the finding to mean that genes causing or predisposing a male to homosexuality reside on the X chromosome. However the work never identified a causative gene. One research group confirmed and extended the work, finding that when two brothers are homosexual and have another brother who is heterosexual, the heterosexual brother does not share the X chromosome marker.
This study also did not find the X chromosome markers between pairs of lesbian sisters. Several research groups have refuted Hamer's findings. But a gene controlling homosexulity need not reside on a sex chromosome, where hammer looked. Ongoing studies are searching among the autosomes for such genes.
In yet another approach to understanding the biological basis of homosexuality, researchers have genetically manipulated male fruit flies to deisplay what looks like homosexual behavior.
A mutant allele of an eye color gene called white causes the flies to have white eyes when expressed in the cells of the eyes only. Wild type eye color is red. Researchers altered male fly embryos so that the resulting adult insects expressed the white gene's product, an enxyme that controls eye color, enables cells to use the amino acid tryptophan, which is required to manufacture the hormone seratonin. When ALL of the fly's cells express the mutant white gene, instead of just the eye cells, seratonin levels in the brain drop and this may cause the unusual behavior. In other animals, lowered brain seratonin is associated with homosexual behavior.

In other words, there is a greater emphasis being discovered on genetics as being the causation, but expression of those genes can be environmental.

IOW, yeah, we're made that way. We can pretend we're not gay, but it doesn't change the markers on our DNA.
