from PennLive:

"The Rev. Joseph McFadden, bishop of the Diocese of Harrisburg:

"'We believe and teach that the gift of marriage is something we receive from God, it is not something we construct or can change to fit our purposes. That is why one of the most troubling developments in today’s culture is the proposition that persons of the same sex can marry. This proposal attempts to redefine the nature of marriage and the family and, as a result, harms both the intrinsic dignity of every human person and the common good of society. Marriage is the basis for family formation and is not simply a way of legitimizing sex.'"

It's pretty simple, really. God creates gay folks. He instills in them all the same ability and need for love, companionship and family that everyone else has.

He sends some gay folks life-mates and blesses their families in the same way He blesses everyone else.

Unless we are willing to believe that He does those things as some kind of supreme practical joke, with the GOTCHA moment condemnation to hell for all eternity, then yes, we Know What Jesus Would Do.

It's pretty simple as you say. God creates murders, God creates Pedophiles, God creates maggots. God creates a lot of things, good and bad. It doesn't mean just because it's here that it's normal or right.
Doesn't mean it's abnormal or wrong either...

You don't think murderers and pedophiles are abnormal and wrong?

No wonder you're gay.

Didn't say that. But being gay isn't equatable to pedophiles and murderers, just like c(_)ntlickers isn't equatable to being labeled as normal and non perverted.
