Homosexuality is just a sin, which is described as disobedience to God. It is not a sin against society. It falls in the category of immoral acts, which includes adultery, therefore since we're not living in a theocracy, it should not made be illegal. Keep in mind, I never said that it should be legal, and ignored. It should be considered just that, an immoral act. It's the church's responsibility to combat it.

Only if heterosexuality is illegal.

Answering to 'stay away', there are tons of heterosexuals kissing, making out, loving on the streets every day and gays never complained complained about this.

A few thoughts..

There ARE gay animals, of almost every breed. Google it and educate yourself.

Second, it isnt a mental illness, and hasnt been classified as such since the early seventies.

To the person who began the thread...you started "I think..." Please, dont flatter yourself.

It doesn't matter if it is natural or not. all that matters it that it does not hurt anyone else. Therefore the gov't has no right to make it illegal.
A gov't job is not the be a seamstress of "moral fabric" but only to protect the life liberty and property of its members.
So long as any action is among consenting adults, and causes no externam direct harm to anyone else, the gov't has no moral authority.
i agree

ever heard that straight people are spreading it faster than the gay ones? Maybe we should outlaw sex period.
I hate to say it,(because as a Christian, it's acceptable to attack me) but if the ten commandments were followed, what a wonderful world this would be. There's so much wisdom in those 10 rules to live by.

Why then do lesbians have the lowest incidence of STDS of any group?
Really? What study can you link us to to back that up? Herpes must be pretty prevalent.

How can you compare the color of ones skin to sexual deviancy? Illogical.

I don't believe I knowingly commit any immoral acts. I don't consider sexual orientation to have an innate morality. Obviously, you do, but I don't live MY life by your moral standards.

I'm not saying you are a bad person. you may be a very good person who sadly comits immoral acts. The acts are bad and society considers those acts to be immoral.

AIDS is a sexually-transmitted disease. It does not restrict itself to a sexual orientation. HIV can be spread through unprotected sexual activity, both heterosexual and homosexual. In Africa, where HIV and AIDS first appeared, it is primarily a heterosexual disease. I am so sick and tired of homophobes using AIDS as an excuse for their hatred.

By the way, lesbians are the LEAST likely group to get HIV. Does that mean that we should all become lesbians? Personally, I'm not willing to have the surgery...

Try wrapping your tiny mind around the concept that the acts you mention EXCEPT being gay involve an unwilling victim. There is NO comparison of rape or child molestion to an act of love between CONSENTING adults.

Heterosexually is NOT "naturally normal" for me. Being gay is normal for me; I don't need to be "normalized" (which, of course, isn't an actual word) by anyone.

Totally illogical. Heterosexuals are naturally normal, homosexuals (sexual deviants) want to be normalized. While we're at it let's normalize rapists, incesters, child sex abusers, every form of sexual deviants. Wow, what a society that'll be!

And not one of the ten commandments says anything about homosexuality.

No one is attacking you becaue you are christian. My god, so many of you have such a persecution complex; it much be so difficult being a member of the DOMINANT religion in this country. You are being attacked because you are a bigot.

None of the commandments says anything about pedophilia, necrophilia and bestiality either. It doesn't mean that God aproves of them.

In their book Created Equal: Why Gay Rights Matter to America, Michael Nava and Robert Dawidoff exposed the warped "thinking" and politically motivated strategies of America's evangelical Christian Right:

Why, one must ask, if heterosexuality is "natural," is all this effort being expended to promote it? Is it because what is being promoted is not natural sexuality but a form of social organization that excludes those to whom its promotions are not addressed?

The anti-gay right, oddly enough, understands this as most of the heterosexual world does not. The theory of "homosexual recruitment" advanced by them to oppose gay and lesbian rights rests on the premise that sexual desire is amorphous and can be channeled into homosexuality as easily as into heterosexuality. Thus, because anti-gay rightists believe that "the homosexual lifestyle is based on the recruitment and exploitation of vulnerable young men," homosexuality must be suppressed to save all those sad young men.

In fact, however, heterosexuals are not recruited by homosexuals; rather, homosexuals are recruited by heterosexuals almost from the moment they are born. The homosexual recruitment fantasy is simply one more instance of how heterosexuals project their own behavior onto the victims of that behavior as a justification for persisting in it.

We all have tiny minds that don't agree with your lifestyle :::yawn::: What's normal for you doesn't mean it's the best for society.

Most religions are inherrantly immoral in that their authoritarianism is simply manipulation and control of others. What right do so called christians have to dictate what other people do with their bodies and their lives - none. What rights do christians allow non christians to dictate what they do with their lives - none. Modern christianity is simply a mechanism where they try and undermine self trust in the individual in order to obtain and maintain mental control.

And if you actually read the story of Sodom and Gomorrah closely, you would discover that their "sin" was NOT homosexuality.

Besides, I don't care what the bible says. I am not a christian. The US is NOT a theocracy. YOUR personal religious beliefs are NOT relevant to a discussion about what should or should not be legal.

Let's try this again, the bible was written by man, changed throughout centuries to control the masses, and mis-interpretation. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by a volcano.

I get so sick of people claiming that the bible states this or that, when they only read and follow what they want to believe, ignoring the rest. Does Christianity not allow free thinking?

My life is no more immoral than that of the person that said my life is against morality. What a bunch of frickin idiots.

I've only discovered this forum about a week ago and that's all I see...if you dare express any religious views you're either stupid or a bigot. FYI, I know gay people personally and think they are wonderful people. I just don't endorse acting upon those impulses. My friends wouldn't classify me as a bigot, they know me, you don't. They respect my point of view, I respect them. My "persecution complex" comes by quite honestly in our 'anything goes' society. Those of us that stand up for justice and truth get trampled by the liberals. Then they wonder why our country is so screwed up.
