I agree. Gays don't pick my pocket, so I could care less what they do in private.

Sexual preferences doesn't hurt people, so it's not even a moral issue.

There are natural reasons it is wrong.

For one, reproduction is not a possibility for homosexual couples. If EVERYONE were homosexual, the entire race would cease to exist.

"There are natural reasons it is wrong"
Homosexuality occurs in nature, NATURALLY, all the time and not just in humans.
It is not "wrong" because it's not hurting anyone.

It's against the Bible, and making a mockery out of God's Holy ordinance. God ordains the marriage between a man and woman.

Marriage, as both a natural institution and a sacred union, is rooted in the divine plan for creation. The fact that marriage can only exist between a man and a woman is a truth woven deeply into the human spirit. The Church’s teaching on marriage expresses a truth, therefore, that can be perceived first and foremost by human reason.
This truth has been confirmed by divine Revelation in Sacred Scripture. In Scripture we see that marriage comes from the loving hand of God, who fashioned both male and female in the divine image, and who blesses their joining as one flesh and commands them to be fertile and to multiply. The Bible frequently uses the image of marriage to teach about the loving relationship between God and his people. In instituting the Sacrament of Matrimony, Jesus made marriage a symbol of his unconditional love for the Church. The Christian meaning of marriage confirms and strengthens the human value of a loving and life-giving marital union.

Why can marriage exist only between a man and a woman?
The natural structure of human sexuality makes man and woman complementary partners for expressing conjugal love and for transmitting human life. Only a union of male and female can express the sexual complementarity willed by God for marriage. This unique complementarity makes possible the conjugal bond that is the core of marriage. The permanent and exclusive commitment of marriage is the necessary context for the expression of sexual love intended by God both to serve the transmission of human life and to build up the bond between husband and wife.

Why is a same-sex union not equivalent to a marriage?
A same-sex union contradicts the nature and purposes of marriage. It is not based on the natural complementarity of male and female. It cannot cooperate with God to create new life; and the natural purpose of sexual union cannot be achieved by a same-sex union. Because persons in a same-sex union cannot enter into a true conjugal union, it is wrong to equate their relationship to a marriage.

What unique contributions does marriage between a man and woman make to society?
Marriage is the fundamental pattern for male-female relationships. It contributes to society because it models the way in which women and men live interdependently and commit, for the whole of life, to seek the good of each other. The marital union also provides the best conditions for raising children: namely, the stable, loving relationship of a mother and father present only in marriage. The state rightly recognizes this relationship as a public institution in its laws because the relationship makes a unique and essential contribution to the common good.
Pope Benedict XVI recently said of marriage:“To recognize and assist this institution is one of the greatest services that can be rendered nowadays to the common good and to the authentic development of individuals and societies, as well as the best means of ensuring the dignity, equality and true freedom of the human person”(Homily at the Concluding Mass of the Fifth World Meeting of Families, July 9, 2006).
God told us that homosexuality is an abomination. God also told us that He does not change in books such as Malachi. That being the case...it is STILL an abomination to Him.

I think I got the gist of what your getting at here, its wrong because your books say so. But I hear a lot of mess that the Old Testament rules were thrown out when the New Testament was created. So which is it? As for it being natural, there is plenty of homosexual activity documented in nature so it is in fact natural.
I keep hearing about this opposition to gay marriage because it is a sacred union and to all who thing so, you are either ignorant or delusional because it really is not treated that way. You know there is a MUCH greater threat to the institution of marriage than a couple of homos getting hitched, a threat that quite literally destroys the vows made on the wedding day. Its called divorce and for some reason I never hear a peep out of anyone about how that ruins marriage, even though it totally does.
