Another Repub hypocrite. He supports it only because his son is gay. If my son was gay, he'd still be against it.

This is beautiful!! Typical Repuke. Against gay marriage until his son admits to being a fruit pie, now he's for it. He probably has a touch of corn syrup in his own blood. Hell no to queer marriage!

Gay is not the right choice of words, the son made a choice... homosexual is the behavior he wants to follow. A father needs to stand fast and follow
Gods truth and God's word. Immoral behavior will exclude a man or woman from the Kingdom of heaven. That truth is in God's word, the Bible, many times. Pray for the son that he will obey God.

OOo, interesting.

How does one make a choice to ONLY be attracted to the same gender?

I'm guessing you mean that all gay people started out attracted to the opposite gender, and that kids right around age 12 - 13, have the knowledge and where-with-all to utterly change their sexual orientation buy extinguishing all attraction the the opposite gender, and completely replacing it with only attraction the the same gender.

How do kids DO that?

Seems impossible to me.

Can you explain the mechanism these children use to us?

Actually, his soen is an American, a human being, and a taxpayer.

And natural traits are never "right or wrong". They simple are.

Being gay isn't a behavior, it's a natural God given trait.

And as long as a gay person loves God, loves others, and harms no one, including themselves, there are no less likely to enter the Kingdom of Heaven than any straight person.

No.

There is not a single verse in the Bible that states that being attracted only to the same gender is a sin, much less an abomination. There ARE a few verses in the NT that seem to prohibit Christians from participating in pagan practices.

Since I don't know a single gay Christian who is currently doing that, so we're good.

You might want to actually read the Bible. It would do you a world of good.
