I believe in morality, wich is doing right regardless of what I am told. Not in religion, wich is doing what Im told regardless of what is right. So shut up about this anti-gay marriage thing. Because homosexuality is NOT a choice, but homophobia is. amirite?

So, hear hear! Well said!

And in regards to what people are discussing about gay marriage, it's a blatant violation of the principle of separation of church and state when people say gay marriage shouldn't be legal because of the bible. When people hide behind the bible to somehow justify their warped views of political issues, they're undoing the very fabric of which this country is based. The founding fathers were trying to AVOID issues like gay marriage, abortion, and slavery (and their religious affiliations) from interfering with their dream of a democracy.
Gay marriage is purely a humanitarian issue, it shouldn't be a religious issue. Love is love, pure and simple. Leave your controlling and ignorant views at the door, please.

The problem that Christians have with homosexual marriages is in the terminology, not the union. Marriage was created as a spiritual union between two people. The United States adopted this terminology initially because the nation was primarily Christian. A homosexual union titled a "marriage" reduces what a marriage is for Christians. Marriage is just as sacred to us as homosexuals feel their love for each other is to them. My solution is for the country to give marriage back to the religions and create a new title for the union recognized by the state that everyone is welcome to have, gay and straight alike.

I love this post

but seriously? Some people actually believe that If I go against a God (that i don't believe in) that I will burn in a Hell (even if it does exist I don't belong there) and this will convince me to turn homophobic?

Love is love, it shouldn't be judged

your religion doesn't apply to me

and if it does guess what mother fucker?

then all those other religions out there apply to you

and the beliefs you practice now will

end you up in the Hell of most of them for not believing

You clearly misunderstand the purpose of religion. Religion is a faith, and if someone believes in a religion, they have faith in it's words. Most religions say that homosexuality is a choice; that's the point. There is a difference between belief and blind faith. For people, what religion tells you IS morale, and is right.

I understand if they're against it. They just don't have to get a gay marriage.
But they shouldn't make it illegal. A lot of people support marriage, and there should be a separation of church and state.

I agree with you, all up until the part where you say "homophobia isn't a choice". The thing is the stereotype with homophobics is that they're just ignorant bastards trying to bully you into regretting being gay, right? But really, being homophobic is being afraid of homosexuality. It could be because of a scarring event in their childhood for all you know, but there really are people out there who are afraid of homosexuality, like truely afraid. And it's not like they all have a choice, it's just like any other fear. The only thing they have control of is the way they react towards their fear.
Just voicing a thought. I hope I don't sound stupid. I'm just a bit touchy with technicalities & stereotyping.

Also homophobia may have come from being tought it as a chile but it dosent mean its not unchangeable, as for religon, if all you can say as a rebutle to gays not having rights and not liking them is "its against the bible" your a sheep that can't think for themself, I respect that people belive it god, I don't respect that they hate gays because they think they'll burn in hell, even if that was true why would you care?

okay people, you just gotta remember religion's more a personal thing than anything. the bible isn't a book, it's actually a bunch of books by diffrent authors put together, so they're gonna have different opinions. that's why some parts of it say everyone is good in their own way and to love them, and others say most people are gonna burn in hell.
it's like a tool, you can use a religion's name to do good things (mother theresa) or bad things (people who barge into other peoples' private lives)

marriage IS religious if you choose to make it that way. Many atheists choose to hold their wedding and reception outside of churches to prevent it from being religious. There are so many different types of weddings (example: compare Indian wedding to American) tht religion can play a huge role or no role.

For all of you...being gay IS NOT A CHOICE. It is simply the way you feel. The only choice is if you choose to live a gay life...but if you believe in god and are pretending to be strait so you don't go to hell theirs really no point. If you say you believe in god you should also know that,apparently, he knows your thoughts so when your thinking about a guy in "that way" that's actually a sin. Plus, what kind of a god dislikes people just for who they like? If he was any kind of a real god he would love everyone equally. Personally, I like to believe that maybe were all wrong and god really does love everyone the same. But a god that goes around damming people to hell you have to wonder about anyways. Who knows though. Maybe god dosnt even exist. But if he does exist I'd doubt he'd want people hating one another. If you hate gays then your the one that's going to hell.

You're still so young. When I was 13 [not too long ago], I thought I knew everything about myself. Untrue. You're only in 7th or 8th grade, so it's very rare for choices made as a young teenager will follow through into adulthood. Maybe you are truly bisexual, but you can't determine it so young.

Homosexuality is a choice, just as much as anything else. But u can b against homosexuality without being against homosexuals. I believe being gay is wrong
It is a sin. But that doesn't make someone who is gay someone who needs to b teased and hated. Everyone is guilty of sin and all sin in equal in God's eyes. But if u ask Him, u can be saved. It's the ignorant Christians who get on the internet and pretend they know all and say things like, Screw all you gay people and Your all gonna burn in Hell! That cause all Christian to seem like stupid, prejudiced jerks. So, pls do not judge Christians by one idiot's or several idiot actions. :) and if ur struggling w/ homosexuality, get some good help, like a pastor or someone and talk to them or even better, talk to God. God is willing to help and he doesn't want anyone to perish. God bless and have a great day. :)

Actually, scientifically and factually, homosexuality is not a choice, it has to do with a chemical balance. So, although you're being very polite, you shouldn't imply that all homosexuals need help and need to "cure" themselves.

If that's what you believe, fine. I don't think less of you because of your opinions, but I encourage you to think for yourself. How much of the bible is really true? If God is an all knowing being, then wouldn't he/she be knowing enough to give everyone equal rights? Is the bible really straight from the mouth of God? Does God even exist? I certainly don't have the answers to these questions, but maybe the reason we're on this planet is to work together, as a human race to find the answers. All I know is, the one thing we can know for sure is that what ever the answer is, it's not hate.

I think you mean read the old testament. The old testament version of God is a spiteful one, one who tests his followers and punishes them.
Personally, I like the new testament version of God; the all loving one.
If I have to believe in an all-knowing God, then I would prefer to think that God loves us all because God knows us all.

Just as a point of interest though - the bible is an INTERPRETATION of God's word. This means that humans (men actually, for the record) interpreted what God had to say. Who's to say that they didn't get it wrong? Who's to say that they didn't change things to benefit themselves? Also, the early churches edited the bible in order to make it fit the religion better. We are missing so much of the bible, you can't take it as, and excuse the saying here, gospel truth. You have to have wiggle room when you talk about the bible. You can't use it as a weapon because it is not meant to be a weapon. It is a messenger only.

To be honest... I would be uncomfortable peeing and changing in front of any one who found me sexually attractive that I wasn't in a committed relationship with. However, I'm a girl, so peeing isn't an issue, but I wouldn't want to walk naked in a locker room with a guy who lusted after me, why would a gilr who lusted after me be ay different? I mean, you might as well have co ed locker rooms at that point. Ok, a wee bit extreme, but yes. I think they should have somewhere else to change.

I think you're missing a big point here.
Think about it, you're a straight female, correct? I'm sure you don't lust after every guy you see, so why do some people assume that gay people are so different? Lesbians and gays don't lust after every person they see of the same sex, either. It's not like they're different beings, we're all human. Don't assume things.

I like the way that you're trying to comment on the stupidity of the GLBTQ community, when you yourself are unable to even spell words like for, risk, and heaven.
I hate to break it to you, but no one will take you, or your arguments seriously, ever.
Also, I would like to let you know that I don't believe in the same heaven you do. I believe heaven is different for every person, and it entails the things that we want it to. So with that viewpoint, enjoy your angry heaven where everyone is judged and punished by a God who is supposed to be all-loving.
I don't agree with you at all, and I realize that everyone is entitled to their opinion, however, in this case, I really wish you wouldn't state your opinion because you make yourself sound so stupid and it makes me pity you. I pity you slightly more than the rest of the homophobic bible thumpers out there because, at least they can spell.
