This makes NO SENSE to me. He says its better to be raised by gays than to be abandoned ... Maybe someone should tell him that children awaiting adoption HAVE ALL BEEN ABANDONED.(what world does he live in?)

Children should be given the opportunity for a mother and a father first. I fear that should homosexuals succeed in equating heterosuxual and homosexual ... as in homosexual marriage ... then the next step is going to be claiming past discrimination ... so homosexuals should now be given preference in adoptions ... affirmitive action as it were.

The world he lives in is called the 20th Century. The rest of us have moved on to the 21st.

One more reason not to vote for McCain. Not only is he a homophobe, he doesn't have the 'nads to admit it. He'd rather pretend to play both sides of the fence. Jackass.

Why are we all so afraid of gay marriages?

First of all we are not ALL afraid of gay marriages.

The homosexual with their perverted and depraved mind thinks ‘marriage’ is the answer to their self-worth as humans, so they are for it.

The ‘Progressive Liberal’ the ‘Enlightened Intelligent Ones’ are not afraid of gay marriage but rather welcome it as a tribute to ‘true love’ and an ‘advancement of the human evolution’.

Then there are the numb minded self-absorbed conformists that really never had an original thought or idea. They do not take the time to think beyond the moment of time they miserably live in. To actually research or consider the ramifications of anything gives them a head ache so they ‘go along to get along’.

Now come those who actually believe that there is such things as ‘good’ and ‘bad’,‘right’ and ‘wrong’,‘moral’ and ‘immoral’. Those people are very afraid of homosexual marriage! And I’m one of them. A true Homophobe! Why? You asked a very good question!

The only reason there is such things in the world as ‘good’ and ‘bad’,‘moral’ and ‘immoral’ to exist is because God allows it to be. No other reason. You see God wants humans to behave well so he has enjoined in our being the ability to do ‘good’ or ‘evil’, it’s a ‘free will’ or the right to do ‘evil’ if we wish, or to do ‘good’ if we wish. God is so good to us that He has provided a book that entails everything that we must know to do ‘good’ and receive ‘blessings from Him’ or to do ‘evil’ and receive ‘consequences’ for our bad behavior.

Marriage between a man and a woman is a pattern that God has set forth in motion from the beginning. It was Gods intention that man not live alone so he provided a woman to love and have as a blessing. The bible speaks of evil things that invade a human mind and corrupts it. Homosexuality is one of them.

The fear I have isn’t for me but rather the souls of the depraved homosexual because hell is reserved for them as their ‘consequence’ and indirectly our nation will suffer from God for allowing such an evil thing to be sanctioned by human law.

‘Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord’. God will not stand with a nation that ignores His principals. America has indeed been blessed by God in the past, but if we continue down the slippery slope of self-indulgence sin then we too will be dusted off the earth by God for our disobedience to His will. That should make us all very afraid!‘..The fool says in his heart, there is no God....’

Your religious beliefs state that gay marriage is wrong. Most people in this country probably agree with you. This does not mean gay marriage should be illegal.

Mormons believe drinking caffeine is wrong. Should coffee be illegal?

Orthodox Jews and Muslims believe eating pork is wrong. Should it be illegal?

Christians and Jews believe it is wrong to use the Lord's name in vain. Should it be illegal?

Our constitution is supposed to protect all of us against tyranny of the majority. Gay rights are civil rights.

Homophobia is going the same way as racism. The bigots speak the same language.
