being treated equally in a humane way has no bearing on LAWS that are put in place.<quoted text>
However, UIF, in the USA, all 100% of your citizens are protected by American laws, and guaranteed under your constitution to equal treatment under the law. That includes everybody no matter what sex organs they have or what feelings they have about sex.
The only time they contravene the law is when they use those parts or those feelings to break the laws of the land. How the use of those things might break God's law or God's heart is irrelevant to American law, and can't be considered, except by an individual in his own mind as to how he wants to live his own life.
What both you and Yellodog and several other posters have been doing here, is advocating that gays should not have equal rights under the law, and that is actually a criminal act, though people seem to keep getting away with it under your Freedom of Speech laws, which are actually being misunderstood when applied in that way.
Freedom of speech does not give anyone the right to place other people in danger due to what they say. It just means that people, as in some countries, cannot go to prison for saying things, that might be counter to what the government at the time wants to hear.
I just saw a headline come up at the top of this site about a blogger in Iran dying in prison in November, and the top of the cyber crimes unit of their police there has been fired because it appears that his people may have tortured this guy in prison, just because he has expressed opinions on a web site that the government or the police didn't like.
That is an example of what happens when people lose their freedom of speech. But also when people using their freedom of speech advocate that a certain group in the population should be demonized because of what they are, then they are actually advocating that these people could and should be harmed, which is a crime.
