I am a follower of Jesus Christ and the Bible states very simply this is wrong as well as any sex outside of marriage is wrong. God's way is sex between one man and one woman in marriage. God doesn't change and HE loves us enought to know and want what is best for us. Men and woment that remain pure until marriage never have to worry about unwanted pregnacy, veneral diseases, aids and guilt,

God created us all, gay or straight - we all deserve the same rights.

People should be allowed to marry whomever they love. Traditional marriage is a failed institution with over half of marriages ending in divorce....people who live in glass houses.....

there's no equal rights and justice for all until there is the right to marry who-ever-regardless of gender. Stop your hate

HI Carole. Seems our views are not popular on this site! Actually not our views, but our Fathers. I am with you. You are correct. IF a man or woman is brought up with the Scriptures...and waits...on the Father to show who is their husband or wife...then all the ailments that happen to those without these guidelines don't occur as you said. Yes, everyone is created by the Father, but then once in the world, a man or woman chooses their father in this life...the father of lies...the serpent or our Eternal Father. Who says, "If you love me, keep my commandments"

Why not? Two people, of the same sex, getting married isn't going to end the world. It isn't going to have any effect on anyone, other than them and their family. Which are the only people who should have any say in who they're marrying, gay or straight, anyway.

folks are looking for "love" which they confuse with good sex or even attention from another. If the sex is good, then they suppose they are in love. And yes, it was more than 2 people that ended the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah (save about 6 people). That is just an example of what has happened in the past due to the actions of a few people that influenced the whole town. So, yes,a family can affect others. As it also did in ancient Greece.

Lev 3:17
"You must never eat any fat or blood. This is a permanent law for you, and it must be observed from generation to generation, wherever you live."

It's against my religion. The Bible says it is a sin.

There is no such thing as gay marriage, regardless of what the courts rule. They're still fakes - not real marriages. Society doesn't accept them. Rejects.
Ask Forgiveness

If anyone reads the Bible and believes it is true will be against gay marriage. Read Matthew 24 and you will realize that what is happening today is true to scripture. God tells us all these things will happen before the Rapture. We have to be forgiven for our sins to be saved. If you are living in sin, you have to give it up and repent before God will forgive you.
If you ask God, He will forgive you, but you have to stop what you are doing. God will convict you of your sin and you will realize your way is wrong. All people are born sinners and only Jesus Christ can forgive you.
