And sodomy or against the nature, were are belong to the animal kingdom (I think) and do you saw two dog or two monkeys or two birds or two cats or two insects having sex with their own sex?
    Have you ever had a female dog as a pet and also another female dog as well? My friend has 3 female dogs and they all go at each other... And the 2 are mother and daughter. If this was a sin, why didnt "god" kill them in some way? If it is a sin, why isnt it in the amendments or the commandments or anything else for that matter. They got over blacks with whites and any other race iwht any other race. Does this mean a woman that gets a sex changed to a guy but is still into guys commiting a sin? We know that there is no way that doctors can give her the equipment to be a full man physically. Is she commiting a sin? Or can we blame god for putting her in the wrong body? She is still gay and into men, as a man on the inside of her female body exsists. You nor any other homophobe can stop the comforming in the world. It is a majority rule situation and apparently "we gays" are winning that vote. People are realising that we ARE human and we will NEVER go away... You killed us in the olden days, but we rose up and stood our ground. Face it, we are who we are and we are never going to hide in the back drop so all you "normal" people can be happy. Everyone who wants us gone should shut up andface the facts. We will stand together and protect anyone who is threatened. No matter how much you push us down we push back harder and harder. As long as we exsist on this earth, we have the right to be happy with who we want and what ever sex we want.

    Re: Gay Marriages

    In my opinion gay marraige's should be legalized. There is nothing wrong with it as far as i can tell. 4 of my friends are gay or bi even and they're more fun to hang out with than some of my other friends. If you look at it in the "omg im so religious and i cant open my mind to anything else" sorta way yeah they think its bad...not to stomp on anyone's toes or anything...but the reason why i dont really have a religion is because of what the christians said...it made me mad. yes i do believe there is a force out there...but i dont think that its how its described. so i basically say not just yes to gay marraige being legalized...I say Hell Yes! They need to make some changes. its not going to hurt anyone...except for maybe some peoples pride...but that is just plane stupid if it hurts your pride then oh well get over it. Most of the time when you really look at...people who are gay...lesbian..or even bi dont judge you as much as other's do...but like i said im all for it.


    ISNT lOVE THE SAME, REGUARDLESS OF GENDER?


    I will love you without fear or restrictions. I will trust you without wondering. I will want you without demand and accept you just the way you are. And If you give me the chance, if you give us a chance, I will spend the rest of my life proving to you that you made the right decision. <3 Sayoko

    Just because your religious doesnt mean you have to believe word for word of what is being said. Hell I am religious and I believe in the big bang theary and one of my best friends is a lesbian and no I dont think she is going to burn in hell and a bunch of other stuff. So that being said, being religious does not mean you have to have your head in the sand because you dont want to hear something that contradicts of what was being toaght by said religion. So you can be homosexual and be religious to. If some one gives you crap about it just give them the all mighty finger and move on with your life.

    By stupid religious fanatics are you refering to all religious people as a whole, or those who clearly zealots? I happen to be religious and I know many people who are also religious and there are a lot of religious people here on AO who are actually for it or they dont care and just say good for them.

When people are in love and want to proclaim it to their friends and family, what's so bad about that? Is it because there's a chance the rate of divorce in the US is going to increase? It's already bad and part of that thanks can go toward celebrities.

    What is marriage nowadays? It doesn't seem all that sacred anymore since people are just getting divorces. And those are people who are heterosexual. Doesn't everyone deserve a chance? When we put people in prison for whatever sentence, we release them back into the public to give them another chance?

    Homosexuals are people, too. I mean isn't America considered the “land of opportunity” and “land of the free?” Well, where's the opportunity and freedom of homosexuals to get married if they so desire it. I really don't get how our country can be so discriminative toward just a simple request.
    More people to add to the devorce list and heart ach, YAY!!

    Re: Gay Marriages

    I think it's wrong 2 people can't be together because of some law. Where is the justice in keeping 2 people apart not and not being able to marry just because they are gay. How can anyone think this is fair. The government might be able to control our taxes, but shouldn't be able to control a homosexual couple that want to get married.

People make us out to be evil or just plain old f--ked up in the head, but we go through more hardships being who we are than anyone else. We have to deal with our lifestyle along with everything else. Loving someone unconditionally is all that matters. If you want to get married to your partner then it should be allowed. You are promising yourself to only that person and sharing your life and troubles with only that person. They say we shouldn't be allowed to have children either, that it will be hard on the child with out the mother role or the father role, but they don't realize that we were born to someone else and that they have family. There are more people in the childs life to help him/her grow to be an outstanding citizen if being gay/lesbian/bi/transexual/trans-gender was accepted among society. We live to love because most of us have lived with out love and we don't want to put anyone or even a child, through that pain. People need to realize that we don't bleed green and that we ARE human. We have the same feelings as you do, and we deserved to be treated with the same respect as anyone else. Now, those men/women who molest boys/girls, are they necessarly gay/lesbian? People think that because of what they do that we are just like them. Most of those people are married to a member of the opposit sex. So why are we to blame? We are just like you, alive and feeling every little remark smashing our lifestyles into the ground. How would you feel if you grew up into a homosexual world. If you were born heterosexual and people taunted you and harassed you and even tried to kill you because you weren't like them? Just how would you feel?
    Way to be honest. And good for you for not giving into this illegal gay marriage stuff. I agree it doesn't make it right to deny something not considered a threat. If the government keeps restricting people with laws that seem discriminatory towards a certain group, how do they expect us to keep cooperating? I definitely believe in equal rights for everyone. What happened to the first amendment: freedom of speech, expression, and religion. Is the government saying that just because people are of different sexual orientation, they cannot commit themselves to live as a married couple. I am appalled at how our government can make such rules. To me, it sounds sort of biased.

    In America, it started with the discrimination toward the Native Americans by putting them on reservations and the only way out of living the ghetto life is to open up casinos. Then it was with African Americans treated people unjustly because of their skin color.

    I also feel sorry for the Jews because they are a group that have been persecuted for hundreds of years. Today, I still hear about people's stories on the news about how their life was impacted by the Holocaust. They still even have the numbers tattooed on their body. I'm sure a lot of them even had to face losing someone they knew or loved from the gas chambers.

    How about the Japanese Americans? When Pearl Harbor was bombed, they were unjustly taken to internment camps. When President Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, why did the Japanese Americans who fled to our country have to be treated as if they weren't American?

    Now, we are putting down marriage for people who are homosexual. I mean they pay taxes like everyone else so why is it they face different treatment than the everyone else?

    In the end, what I'm trying to say is it's not a crime to be the way you are as long as it's not hurting anyone. Whether you are gay, Hispanic, Catholic, or part of any kind of group. You should actually be able to shout how proud of who you are without being ridiculed, mocked, beaten, threatened, or any other form of harrassment.

    As I said before, as long as we exsist on this earth, we have the right to be happy with who we want and what ever sex we want. As long as we have a voice, we will be herd. As long as we have the will, we will fight back and rise up to defend our lifestyles and all those who stand behind us. As long as we live, we will be a part of this country. And as long as we keep moving forward, we will make you see that we are just like you and we do NOT bleed green. We are here, we are now, and we aren't leaving.

    Umm in actuality the Gov. is not saying no. Yes there was a law saying that a marriage is defined between a man and a women, how ever, there is another law that says every one has a right of happiness, which then interferes with the whole definition of marriage. The only reason it was ever taken to a Gov. level was because people made a big stink about it, where the Gov. ended up giving the power to the states to choose to legalize it or not with in their borders. So don’t get all angry with the Gov. Take your beef up with your state offices. Because there are 3 states last time I checked legalized gay marriage, one of which is my home state of California.

    Sad to hear that USA has gone so far back in time that only 3 states allow legalized gay marriage or anything that has similar legal status. Gay "marriage" hasn't been possible in Finland for ages, but atleast gay couples are now given possibility to legalize their relationship and yes, it gives same legal status as normal marriage, atleast when it comes to point of divorce, death of other or just as simple as buying a car and taking loan for it.

    The whole thing about church giving blessing to gay-couples is highly "dame" in Finland at the moment, cos' some highly religious people are against priests giving blessing. Church-council hasn't given yes or no for it yet, but only few priests has done it which shows the church point of view...but nevertheless Finland is also going to right direction, even seriously considering possibility to give gay couples right to adopt.


    Love hurts...trust me I know, I really do...
