Homosexuality is sin, period. The people are precious in God's eyes but the acts/actions are sin and will cause a person to be lost and go to hell.

people would never choose to be gay, especially in the South where people are so judgmental. You don't have to agree with it, but it is what it is. Try getting to know a gay person, there's a regular person there minus the ONE difference.

For those who call homosexuality a sin: "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone..." [John 8.7] But what I remember being taught is to love all-- no matter their race, religion, origin, or gender. Love isn't just about reproduction. And, most of all, why should anyone be hated for finding love in a world where it's so hard to find?

Who says? A single sentence in a book over 2,000 years old, written by MEN, not god, and translated and reinterpreted hundreds if not thousands of times over? Want some other sentences from that book?
"You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads nor harm the edges of your beard."
“You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you.” In reference to pigs. That's right kids! Bacon and football will earn you a first class, one-way ticket to hell.
“You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together.” Polyester/cotton blends? HELL.
Though if you honestly think a loving god would create people solely attracted to the opposite sex, or honestly are so convinced that everyone else must see the world exactly like you and therefore homosexuality must be a choice, then you have much, much bigger problems, and I truly, TRULY pity you.

If you don't like gay marriage, don't get one. Don't take away someone else's rights. Not everyone believes in god either. So you can stop with the "it's a sin! You're precious in gods eyes!" crap. I don't force my religion on you, don't force yours on me.

The funny thing is, most religious conservatives are against government intervening into peoples personal freedoms and choices while at the same time crying, whining, and preaching that government should keep it unlawful for gay people to marry.

Maybe those same religious conservatives should gain some self awareness and analyze their contradicting beliefs instead of spending so much of their time worried about others sexual preference. Instead of wasting time preaching their message to their disagreement of gay's, they could be spending time with their family or trying to understand their screwed up beliefs.

If others and the bible belt ever come to understand evolution, instincts, and what influences everyones sexual attractions, possibly their mind would evolve from their ancient belief books that keeps them spreading hate and ignorance.

Whether gay or straight, anyone should be against government defining what is legal sexual preference between same sex. If God and your religion didn't want some of the same sex to be attracted to one another, your God shouldn't have created other animals that are gay along with humans born with both male and female parts. You will just blame this on sin and satan right?

Because there is a separation of church and state. And everyone deserves happiness. People seem sad about the child suicides out there. Well, it's usually confused teens who are bashed for being gay. Seeing people criticize gays make hurt. Everyone bleeds the same blood. Ps. HIV came from eating monkey brains, NOT a gay guy having sex. Kthnxbai

Let me say this I hate no one, but that doesn't mean that I go along or believe what they do is right.But that is their choice, and as long as they keep their hands off me and doesn't try any funny stuff with me they will be fine.Yes I think it is sick to see to people of the same sex carry on like they do but that's them and I don't have to answer for their sins.When I go in front of God I only answer for myself, others will have to answer for their own life.Yes it is wrong and a sin for two people of the same sex to go together but I won't judge them God will.I can give my opinion because that's my rights, everyone has their own opinions on everything and they can give them.Others may not like the opinions of everyone but its a persons right to speak theirs.Same thing with acceptance people doesn't have to accept gays life style just like gays don't have to accept straights but we all have that right too.I say too all gays stop with the gay protesting about the right to marry and get a life.Because no matter what a marriage is a covenant to God and he will bless that marriage, but God will not bless abomanation, and that is what living a gay life style is.And if that is what you want then live with the one you love and stop trying to force others to accepting it.

For the most part you make sense. It is not for you to judge. As long as they do not involve you.... all are logical... then you vear WAY off couse.

"Because no matter what a marriage is a covenant to God and he will bless that marriage, but God will not bless abomanation, and that is what living a gay life style is.And if that is what you want then live with the one you love and stop trying to force others to accepting it."

Sorry, marriage is a legal contract... has nothing to do with your "God". If what you say is true, then muslims, hindues, athiest, and anyone else who does not believe in the judeo christian "god can not marry. Is t hat what you believe?... A marriage can be "blessed" by the participants religion, but it is not needed for the marriage.

You can say "they can live together"... well anyone can do that. Tell me why you believe two u.s. citizens should get less privileges than two other citizens. Because it offends your religious beliefs?.... Please
