Right or Wrong, Who are we to judge? I think if a person want to commit to another person, then so be it. Whatever sexuality you are people need companionship and everyone deserve to be happy. If you don't care for it, then this free country allows to to pick your friends and stay away from others.
just my opinion

I don't agree with gay marriages nor re fact that any male or female chooses to be gay.. It's not Gods will for them to b that way, BUT I have a guy that I graduated with that's gay, my gf's brother and her 1st cuz is gay and I dont judge them, don't talk about them, nor hate on them bc that's the life style they've chosen.. I am a Christian and believe that a man and woman should be together and the same race should be together, but as much racial mixings and gays that's out there now all we can do as Christians is talk to them bout the way God intended us to live. Nobody is perfect and never will b.. This is something they have to ask forgiveness for and rember this God forgives all!! And whoever said"god has stupid rules" or something to that extent, that's wrong in so many ways.. Yes times have changed since then, but ask urself why has it changed so much?? It's bc since the Bible was written we've let the devil provoke us in such ways thats changed how people have lived and increased sin that much more.. The point I'm making is its not Gods intent for people to be gay, but I will not hold that against somebody.. I will not vote for it, but I hold nothing against them
very well put, only God can judge us!

The Bible does not say not to judge, but to judge righteously .

When you die you can go with your calculus textbook, that is your choice, when I die I am going the way my Bible says. Jesus is The Way, The Truth, and The Life. If you don't want to believe that it is your choice.

Might as well. Not our right to judge people. And anyone that says gay people are going to hell are wrong. God says the only sin that will send u to hell is denying the holy spirit. Js

The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;

Galatians 5:20
idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions

They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good. Not true sweetie. Sorry.

To say that you've never told a lie.. Would be a lie! So based on the Bible you shall inherit that brimstone and fire. Good day!

All of these negative/ignorant comments; it's no wonder a large part of the southern US has such mind blowingly low intelligence levels compared to the rest of the world. I think there's less funding in the south than elsewhere solely because it'd go to waste on bigots who refuse to come into the 21st century with everyone else. I fully understand that ignorance and hate isn't shared with everyone, but majority rules. I can't tell you how many dirty looks and muttered comments I've gotten since traveling down here just because I'm a female with tattoos/piercings and a unique hair style. I am a graduate from Cornell University - I think going to IVY gives me the right to dress and look how I please without people assuming I'm some devil worshiping satanist. I go to church back home, I even attend study groups - I founded one of my church's charity foundations.

Anyone who says homosexuality is a sin and throws all this hate is a sinner themselves - only God can judge us, he literally tells us that if we judge another of His creations we are going against Him...

Needless to say my trip to travel the US and America's while on break has definitely left me with bad memories of the southern states excepting Fl. I found less mindless hate in Asia - that's saying something.

Once again I realize that hateful views are of shared by everyone, but I've come across enough to ruin this area of the US for me.
