It is written in the Holy Bible long before politically correct acceptance by this generation - why would anyone contradict such powerful doctrine? Only a fool defies our Lord God. Get real!

Get real: not everyone lives by your bible.
It's not your business or mine how others live their lives. Denying any loving couple the benefits of a civil union is about as un-"Christian" as it gets.

Why does god think it wrong?
Bible doesn't say does it?

That's because God never said it.
Back when people died at the drop of a hat it was bad.

That's because the most important thing back in the times of the bible were the number of children you had.
For your Tribe the more the merrier.

Gay people don't naturally have kids. Therefore a trible with gay people would suffer from less people.

Thus it was considered a "Sin" problem solved.

Now do we have that problem today?

No we don't.

The same chapter that says it is wrong says not to eat pork or shellfish. Yet most have no problem with both of those.

Everyone should be on an equal footing. Straight people and gay people can NOT control the way they are born. Sexula orientation is as random as the color of one's eyes. Marriage should be equal to all...should the persons desire to be married.

READ... If you Lay with a beast or men to men or woman to woman, its an abomination in the Eyes of God, there is no such thing as a "gay Christian" so unless you want to fry in hell, don't mess with the natural purpose of things.

Do you think when God created Human Kind he reached into his bag of wonders and pulled out Male and Female by chance? no he did not. Being Gay its a choice, many of them feel like they have a choice because of how they were raised at home, but the right education would not leave room to choose because they would know right from wrong, the 0 cannot go inside of a 0 nether the 1 inside of a 1 only 1 can go inside the 0.

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION! imagine if you couldnt marry the one you love. sure you could love each other without being married, but marriage is a statement and declaration of devotion to your significant other forever, no matter what gender.

God is against the acts done by a gay person- not the person themselves. He loves them like he loves everyone else and they sin, just like everyone else.

Your world must be very lonely. So much evil in this world and you're criticizing a group of people with a broad brush of hate.

Who I love is who I love. Who are you to control it. Heterosexual privilege needs to be quelled.

I hope that at the very moment you say this, that you do not have two of the same crops right next to each other, wear clothing of two different materials, have spoken to a woman on her period or worked last Sunday. These may be classic examples to refute your claim, but they are also solid. I don't wish to talk to you about how the Bible is more metaphor than solid facts, but I don't believe you would listen any further if I did so. The passage in the Bible that speaks of what you think is "God's stance against homosexuality" actually defines the Christian religion's stance on rape and molestation between any two genders.

Honestly your religion has nothing to do with whether they should get the right to marry or not. The constitution set it up so our government is separate from religion. So your discrimination towards homosexuals is just as wrong as the discrimination against the African Americans forty years ago. You're taking away their human rights. I don't know about you,but I don't want to be remembered in the future as the human being that spread hatred.
