So with gay people they are just attracted to people of the same gender and just about it.
Got that. And there are those that would disagree with me but as an American I have to say that I don't see any reason why those who are attracted to the same-sex couldn't marry. This country is founded on freedom of conscience, if that is where you're conscience leads you, then okay. But we all have to find a way to live with those in a loving and kind way that don't agree with our views.

You didn't answer my question: Do you consider yourself a good person?

Verse 6
"Love does not rejoice in evil but rejoices with the truth."

What does that mean? That means you don't do a victory dance when wrong is done someone, even if you think they had it coming. Real love does not rejoice in wrong doing, it rejoices in what's right.

{This is one that I struggle with a lot myself and many of us still struggle with this. Our culture has taught us the complete opposite unfortunately and there is so much we need to unlearn that our culture has taught us.}

Verse 7
"it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

This means love puts up with everything, and still trusts, is hopeful, and enduring.

{Think of grace like you've never experienced before...}

Verse 8

"Love never fails. But where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away."

Everything will someday come to an end. Including the spiritual gifts that God has given to the church. But love will never end.

Knowing that real love never ends, should help you understand there is no such thing as "falling in" and "out of love".

God is love (1 John 4:16). And because He lives in you, He expects you to die to your flesh {basically all the stuff the world has taught you} and demonstrate His unconditional love others {yes including those that you might consider enemies}. He expects you to be a walking and talking definition of love!

I am. I love Chick-fil-A food but I will not support anti-gay bigots. I am in a gay relationship and refuse to give a dime to any homophobic company. Many lgbt people used to be loyal customers for Chick-fil-A for years but this is the finale straw and boycotting Chick-fil-A for life.
Its obvious the family doesn't care what others think about their statement. The family can live off the interest their money earns and not have to touch the capital. This family isn't worry about who don't buy their sandwich. This family is secure.

After reading the statement they made about gay marriages my impression is they think gay marriage sucks.

All the men of the city surrounded Lot's house and said, "Where are the men who came to you tonight. Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them." (Genesis 19:5, NIV)

The angels struck the rioters blind!

The Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah, destroying the buildings, the people, and all the vegetation in the plain.

Jude 1:6-7 (NASB)- And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day, just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.

More than 80% of AIDS cases in Canada are among homosexual or bisexual males; other diseases suffered either exclusively, or in larger percentages by the homosexual population, include: anal cancer, chlamydia trachomatis, cryptosporidium, giardia lamblia, herpes simplex virus, HPV, gonorrhea, viral hepatitis B and C, and syphilis.

The Chicago Department of Public Health reported that the percentage of Chicago AIDS diagnoses connected to homo/bisexual men increased from 37% in year 2000 to 44% in 2003; and in mid-2006 it also reported that homo/bisexual men accounted for approximately 73% of Chicago syphilis cases for the year 2005. And a September 2010 report from the Centers for Disease Control titled "HIV among Gay, Bisexual and Other Men Who Have Sex with Men (MSM)" noted: "Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) represent approximately 2% of the US population, yet are the population most severely affected by HIV and are the only risk group in which new HIV infections have been increasing steadily since the early 1990s....At the end of 2006, more than half (53%) of all people living with HIV in the United States were MSM or MSM-IDU [injection drug user]." And according to a CDC report released in November 2009, 63% of syphilis cases in this country were found in homo/bisexuals in 2008.

Homosexuality is condemned in the Bible. Below are some Bible verses that condemn homosexuality:

Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.

Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.

Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

I Corinthians 6:9(NIV)- 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.

I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."

Jude 1:6-7 (NASB)- And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day, just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.

With all these facts, how can our sitting President call for special rights for this group of people?
Only because he thinks it will get him more votes.

The American Medical Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the World Health Organization, the American Counseling Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the National Association of Social Workers all agree that homosexuality most certainly IS a perfectly normal variant of human sexuality, isn't inherently harmful and isn't a choice. I'll gladly take their scientifically-proven, peer-reviewed word for it over the word of a knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing Neanderthal bigot like you any old day of the week.
These associations are exactly would they are. That is they are associations which are similiar to unions. They have been infultrated by socialists and liberals to push a behaviour on society. Ask a well known Psychiatric what he thinks and he will tell you that homosexuality is deviant behaviour. The lifestyle is harmful and is a threat to the children in today's society.

Yep, that 5% is really going to hurt their bottom line, LOL.
Most Americans still support traditional Marriage, glad to see this guy make a stand.
More like 2% although they would like you to think there are more that 2 out of 100 who are queer! They would also like you to think they are borne queer...but we all now know there is no scientific proof of that...matter of fact evidence is contrary to the belief. Next they will want you to believe people that cheat on their marriage are just borne to be that way, as well as other BS.
