They are the way they were born. They should have the same rights as anyone else.

The practice of homosexuality is a Biblical sin.

Homosexuality is a sin. It does not matter what people say. I believe it is wrong and should not warrant rights of any kind of union aside from WRONG. God makes us all the same as in boys with certain parts and girls with their body parts. He also wants us to procreate. There is NO WAY 2 men or 2 women can do that. We all (in my opinion) start out the same. I believe things may happen to us in our lives that make us feel non trusting of others of opposite sex...as in sexual abuse or similar things. This does affect a person's brain. It is a fact. If not dealt with immediately, they can literally go from normal and hetero to thinking that homo is the right choice. The thing is it WRONG. I don't think gay couples should have any rights as far as recognizing them as being "married" because in my eyes that is an abomination to God. Just my thoughts.

I'm not for it or against it. It doesn't affect my family life, nor is it my job to judge what others have done. That's God's job. It's my job to try to lead them to His word. If they choose not to comply, I can not condemn, nor praise, that's not my place, because to do either means I have judged them right or wrong. It's not my job to judge. I have done what God has asked me to do.

From the stand point of Human Will...we live in a free country, freedom to live how we want, where we want, with who we want. Who am I to criticize your choice. As long as you don't touch me, or my family, we're good.

If God had intended the human race to be fulfilled through both heterosexual and homosexual marriage, He would have designed our bodies to allow reproduction through both means and made both means of sexual intercourse healthy and natural. Homosexual anal intercourse carries a high risk of disease, this is recognized in Scripture where gay men are said to receive in their bodies the due penalty for their error
PLEASE READ (Romans 1:27).

No one has the right to judge anyone. For those that adhere to the Bible, God's word, they should realize that God does the judging and for us to judge is a sin. Each person will be judged individually and God will determine that person's wrongs. not us. And while it appears in places that God condemns homosexuality, it still does not give us the right to judge another person and their personal choices.God's biggest message is to love one another and so we must and live our individual lives in the way we think God wants us to.If gay people wish to marry, then they should regardless of what I or anyone thinks.It is a piece of paper allowing them to take care and be responsible for one another. Doesn't affect me either way.
and @nataliegrace : heterosexual people have anal intercourse too, so where does that put them. Doesn't mention the rules for that in the Bible, so with that thought, could it be suggested that heterosexual people that have anal intercourse be refused the right to marry?
and while i am not a supporter of the gay lifestyle, I accept the choices of others and I would much rather accept two people of the same gender display love than to see two heterosexual people abuse and kill each other. Let God do his job and we do ours...love one another.

Yes, they don't accomplish much though.

"Research has shown that certain members of several mammals other than humans may be bisexual. Dogs fall under one of those species that may be bisexual; Female dogs do often lick other female dogs in sensitive areas (however, it is unknown whether this is a particular "sexual" activity or a nurturing one, or both.)"

Research shows that the majority of the dog species prefer the opposite gender, except in cases where the opposite gender do not exist (such as in captivity, especially with males... but this would be nearly equivilent to Alfred Kinsey's study on Adult Human Males who were incarcerated... heterosexual incarcerated men who had sexual relations with the same gender while under incarceration, typically did not have those same type of activities after being released.)"

God's Child should read your post over and over until the fact sinks in that just like he and his God have a relationship, so do others and he shouldn't be so hellbent on forcing his personal convictions on others . We stopped doing that many years ago but there are a very few out there still trying.

Although I do not think it is right for the same sexes to be together, everyone has a right to their own beliefs. God made man and woman for a reason though.

I have a few family members that are homosexual. One cousin said he has been attracted to men since he can remember, he dated girls in high school but he never felt a sexual attraction to them. He said if he could change he would have as his life has been very hard since he grew up in the 80's and homosexuals did not have the freedoms they have today.

Another cousin said she has always been attracted to females just like the cousin above. She dated men and wowser even had sex with a few but guess what she was always drawn to women. Now lesbians have always been tolerated more than gay men so she didnt have it too rough but still its not something most people would choose to be.

With all that said I think homosexuality it genetic. I think some people surely choose to be bisexual or even homosexual but the truth is most people that are homosexual have been attracted to the same sex since they can remember. So while it might be a sin I dont see how God can be mad at us for something we have zero control over. Thats like God being mad at us because we have blonde hair or because our earlobes are attached. The bible teaches us to love the sinner and to hate the sin. I would encourage you to read the scripture more and pray about things before you go off on people or on a subject you have not researched. Oh and by the way if you are a member of a local church when you go to church Sunday, look around you chances are there are homosexuals in your church, and almost certainly bisexual people! I know the horror right? How dare they come to church, bless your heart.

I'm gay and live married life. I am faithful to my partner, I've never been to a gay bar or had a one night stand. I fell in love with a person, not a gender. We have the same bank account, both our names are on the mortgage and I am going to grow old with her. If states will acknowledge common-law marriage why wouldnt they recognize gay marriage? You dont have to call it marriage, it doesnt have to happen in a church, I just wanna make sure I can sit with the person I love and have commited to build a life with when she is dying in the hospital. Thats not to much to ask.

Well if you don't want a gay marrige then don't get one. If you want to protect marrige then ban divorce. It is also a abomination to eat shell fish, wear clothes mad of mixed fabric blabla bla. You can't just pick and choose what sins are ok or not. This is a free country but not to everyone. I pay taxes and live a normal life just like you str8 people but I can't have the same tax breaks you get. STOP THE HATE.....

Marriage is now a contract. Without it we lose more than just the right to say I do. We can't share a deed. If our partner dies we lose the house or land. We can't combine any of our assets like a loving couple should because if one or the other passes it gets take by the government. We don't have the right to visit our partner in the hospital because we are not related. If a medical decision has to be made we have to wait in the waiting room to see what the relative that hasn't seen our partner in years told them to do......if you ask me that all has nothing to do with religion

difference to me between a church sanctioned marriage a civil legal union. I think all people have the right to receive care and have rights like in a marriage from someone outside their immediate family that loves them regardless of gender.
