I think you all deserve to know that I read the last two pages of this discussion while sitting on the toilet. Because that is what this thread has devolved into.
(unless maybe if you're gay that is, apparently, but that's debatable), but to imply that there is no right or wrong, or penalty for commiting such crimes is a little bit of a stretch, considering that this post goes on to mention the very consequences that would be received for taking such actions (i.e. getting the needle, being locked up, etc, etc). Right and wrong are determined by people. We dictate what is right and wrong. Maybe on a personal level, someone would be able to live with their self based on the fact that there is no afterlife punishment in such a case, but that doesn't mean that what they did was not wrong.
If you want to talk about real facts, fine. Let's talk about real facts (none of this I/you am/are/not Christian talk that is completely overglorified opinioning). Last I knew, the divorce rate was up to 49%. There are countless homosexual couples who have been together for AGES, living their lives together while being loyal and faithful to one another, only being denied the right to be married. Seems to me that those couples have proven themselves more deserving of marriage that 49% of people who actually get married. With marriage rates that poor, why not let the homosexuals get married? At least then SOMEBODY would be getting married (which, I personally do think has had an impact on why legalizing Gay Marriage has taken such progressive steps, and why "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" has been repealed). This would also stimulate the economy, which, I think we can all agree, would be a great thing. Honestly, there's no true reason to say that homosexuals can't get married other than "I say so." (And I mean "I," not "He" or "The Bible." Adam spoke true with what he said before.)
Now everybody shut up and start loving each other either as friends, neighbors, lovers, heterosexuals, or homosexuals already. Enough of this.
