No it is you who is dancing arondthe issue. You are married... ok... did you just see your husband and marry?... or was there an attraction to him which made you date him which proceeded to the marriage?.... Did you not know you were hetero until your wedding night (assuming u waited that long) Heterosexual and homosexual is about attraction, not the act. Tell me why anyone would date anyone if they were not attracted to them..... Oh wait you skirt around those type questions.

"WELL THEY MAY BE ATTRACTED TO EACHOTHER "
Your words
No I am not saying that
"justed cause your attraction to someone dose that mean acted like dogs in heat i have a few people that i have been attraction to and thats all it was i can controle myself and justed to let you know"

What I am saying is Finally you prove my point. You did not say "I will be attacted to males"... you just were. Yes like most people you did not act on your impulses.. you CHOSE to wait... that is a choice all sexuaually mature people, both hetero and homo, make... whether or not to act on the feelings. However like you proved, you did not choose to be attracted to the opposite sex anymore than the homosexual chose to be attracted to the same sex.

"so how dare you gays not only want to live you messed up homosexuly lifestyle but you want folks to be alrigth with it "

First "you gays"... if you are implying I am gay you would be wrong. I am pro equal rights for homosexuals. I also am for equal rights for women, disabled and minority.. that doesnt make me a wheelchair bound black women. It just makes me an american.

"you want folks to be alrigth with it ....."

Frankly my bet is they could care less if you are or are not alright with it.
There are many many things which happen that I am not "alright" with. Doesnt make them less legal, it is my deal that I am uncomfortable with them but doesn't give me a right to keep them from having the same rights I enjoy as a american citizen... does it.

You want to believe that marriage is strictly a "holy" institution...fine... but do not use your beliefes to deny the rights of others.

Can anyone tell why there is such a thing as marrage? If you say you have found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with and have chidlren; you don't need to be married for that.
If you say God created marriage - and He did, the quesion is - why?

The answer to that question can be found at this wedsite www.cognwm.org click on reources and look for the article Why Marriage?

I am a lesbian and a christian, the Bible also says to take the plank out of ur own eye then remove the speck out of others eye, do not judge lest ye be judged, let the one without sin cast the first stone. God made us all in his likeness, but most christians forget other parts of the bible they only mention the scriptures that suit them. People like that r the reason that there is still predudious in the world and people r being killed for being who we r.

Leave the scripture out of your debate and get back to me on why its wrong. This nation was founded due to religious persecution. Our forefathers left England because they didn't like being told what they have to believe. We are here now in 2014. We've lasted this long, what makes you think we won't keep lasting? Equality for all!

I really don't care if gays get married....for several reasons. There are more important things to worry about in this country that two gay people getting married. Also, as "kinky" said..."why can't they be just as miserable as the rest of us married people?" Also, for religious people...don't "bible this and bible that me." We are not a theocracy...we are not ruled by religious leadership in this country. Yes, we were founded on the Judeo-christian principal (just fyi, I'm no atheist just have no use for organized religion) but we are also someplace where you can be anything you want to be and not be subject to persecution. Gay lifestyle? As a native american (Creek,Raven clan) we view it as unnatural. Please don't tell me about dog humping each other...that is dominance behavior. The birds, bees, dogs, cats, deer,.....all male/female. Also...in my opinion..two men or two women using a surrogate to make a child...that's just wrong...in my opinion. Adoption....maybe. Anyway....the problems facing our nation now are too important to worry about gay marriage. I'm a libertarian in my politics...dems/liberals are too in "la la land" and repubs..they just worry and make a fuss over the stupidest things. These are my opinions ...of which I wore the uniform of the United States to protect...100% disabled veteran. Please respect my "opines"as I do yours.....
