Many ridiculous things were outlawed in Leviticus so stop using it as a reason unless you're willing to proclaim jihad on red lobster, polyester, and women talking too. Be consistent. If you preach love then don't hate on love! It you dislike gay people, give them a chance to be miserable by getting married. It's not your life, it doesn't effect you. You don't think getting married to a member of your own sex is right, don't do it? It's that simple. But it may be right for someone else.

Problem with that is marriage in the legal sense carries with it many privledges that would not come with civil unions. So If you only allow a cu, then it is seperate but far from equal

The Bible may not support it but, show me, educated ones, where in the Constitution does it say it's unacceptable? You CAN'T because 8 states have legalized gay marriage. Interracial marriage used to be illegal also, until 1967. My children were raised with love, acceptance and tolerance. So, to the idiot who doesn't know how to talk to their kids about LOVE, please do not reproduce anymore. I am a heterosexual woman, married for 15 years, raised in the Bible Belt and even I understand that times change.

anyone who supports a book written long before you were born is respectable. but it is your view and your opinion. I understand your views but does the bible not say the we need to be understanding of all others (more or less exact words) Jesus believed in understanding others and died on a cross so ALL of us could live and be happy. not just straight males and females, but all people. If god truly did not want gay/lesbian/bi/transsexual/pan sexual people to be happy, than wouldn't he have never made them? there are gays and lesbians that go to church everyday praying to god that they will become straight and when it didn't work, they eventually understood that they are just perfect the way they are. and they learn to be happy like god expected them to be. so why cant all Christians learn to love all others the way god made them to be?

I don't expect this to change anyone's way of thinking, but I hope that I reached at least a few of you, so that you can help save a life of a gay or lesbian individual that is verging on committing suicide.

Thank you for reading this.

sincerely
A caring individual.

You need a lesson on cultural vs moral and ethical law. These laws you attempt to mock "shellfish" are cultural. It's awesome we have a G*D that protected Jews from food that's could kill them back in those days due to lack of knowledge of proper food processing.. Also while you're studying up on that you might want to research no Noahide law. Yes Leviticus is still very much needed and honored in Judaism as well as Christianity and Rastafarianism.

God made man and woman he made everything perfect. If in the beginning there had been two males or two females how could they reproduce
