We live in a secular republic with liberty as our highest value. It's damned hypocritical to tell other people how to live their lives because your religion has a problem with it. I think some of you people ought to move to Saudi Arabia, get a good look at what theocracy is really like.

In reply to "fire", people are not born gay necessarily. They may have some characteristics in them of acting homosexual, but that is simply hormones. For example, if a boy acts like, talks like, and kind of dresses like a girl, that could simply mean he has too much estrogen levels in him or not enough testosterone. That can be fixed by a shot or a even a one time pill to add some of the extra hormone levels he needs to balance them out. Same goes for females too. They could possibly have too much testosterone levels and that can be fixed with the shot or the pill. And I AM IN NO WAY JUDGING HOMOSEXUALS.

<quoted text>"Gay marriage is an abomination in the Bible. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for it. In Genesis 19 it says do not lie with a man as a man would lie with a woman for that is detestable. And it goes both ways. Women should not lie with other women and men should not lie with other men. I believe that if God says not to do it, that he knows what he is talking about"

"All this is nice prose... however, since we are not a theocracy, it doesnt matter what your holy book says...

And I do not hate gay people, I do not discriminate against gay people, but the Bible says that I do not have to fellowship with them. The Bible actually says not to fellowship with them. "

You do realize that they dont wear "i am a homosexual" button. That most homosexuals while out of the closet do not promote their sexuality anymore than a hetero does. That you probably socialize with them, work with them, even sit with them in church..... OMMAnd I do not hate gay people, I do not discriminate against gay people, but the Bible says that I do not have to fellowship with them. The Bible actually says not to fellowship with them. OMG.. they are all around.

You can have your opinion, however when your "opinion" keeps people form enjoying their rights as U.S. citizens, then there is an issue.
In reply to "no big o", I never said this was a theocracy. I just have my opinions like you have yours. And my opinion is not affecting anyone from having their rights because I don't go up to homosexuals and preach to them about what they are doing, and since I don't judge people, I would never say that I hated one or thought that they were stupid for what they were doing. But just as they have their rights to be a homosexual, I have my rights to voice my opinion and that is just my opinion on gay marriage. If you don't like it, you don't have to sit and reply to my posts hatefully. You can just make your own posts about what you believe in so you can get your opinions out that way.

Thank you for posting this because you are the only person I have seen so far on here who has used the Bible as their foundation for their opinion and for that I applaud you. You obviously understand what God meant when he created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve.

IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT YOU BELIEVE GOD MEANT.

What matters is why two u.s. citizens are denied equal rights due to nothing more than there sexual preference.... period

But he, God, did create Adam and Steve. They live together down the street from me. They are a lovely couple.

Well if any of u idoits really did read the bible it say that u should not consum or do any thing to harm the body and I bet that everyone that is bashing gay have a tat eat unhealthy smoke have pericing die their hair and ect so does that mean u r going to hell no u r not the ones that are doing it so what does it matter who cares if a women wants to lay with a women or a male wants to lay with a male and the devorice rate is much higher for straight people then it is gay so look at what sins are u r doing in stead of other people and if u really want to get into the bible two of the most important people in the bible were gay so read the bible before bring stuff up that u have no idea about and yes I am a lesbian and I have no regret for it I love my wife just as much as any man and love her for who she is not who people want her to be all this websit is bull shit talk and u all have nothing better to dothen to sit your asses in front of a computer to talk shit. So the next time someone wants to bring up the bible read the whole book first cause it might start out as man and women but don't just stop there keep reading so u can back your shit up.

Two of the greatest heroes in the bible were gay, or at least bi. They were in love and their names were Jonathan and David. They formed a marriage like covenant, and David loved Jonathan more than any woman. Their souls were joined together, and it was love at first sight. It's all in 1 Samuel 18:1 through 2 Samuel 1:2. The book of First Samuel is pretty explicit on this.
For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of god, just because they did it doesn't mean it's right

I agree a lot of the comments here are just people's opinion and have no biblical base

but his delight is in the law of the Lord , and on his law he meditates day and night.(Psalms 1:2 ESV)

If there is no God then there is no hell either so your statement is contradicting.
