    so why should religion stand in the way of gay people? I find it hard to believe that someone who apparently loved all His children said.........oh, except those two guys hugging in the corner....then again, maybe He was only human after all.

    Just because you’re uncomfortable with it? Strict Catholics are uncomfortable with birth control, but you don’t see many people arguing about that.

    Of course, which means there's no gay sex now because no-one can get married...brilliant thinking.

    If religious reasons dictate things should be a certain way and that's how you live your life then fair enough, but that's one of the reasons why I give religion a wide berth, I don't think it encourages open mindedness and can be successfully applied to all current situations. As for people who all of a sudden become religious when gay marriage is brought up "CENSORED CENSORED CENSORED" hahaha

    I know that doesn't apply to too many in here though as I've heard you make reference to being religious in the past.

    IMO gay sex just isn't right, doesn't seem progressive in the natural world, i mean if we were all gay, we wouldn't last very long as a result. I know some species of animal are homosexual/bisexual in the natural world so its not just human but in general it doesn't seem to follow nature. I'm against gay marriage in the biblical sense for these reasons. As someone once said God made Adam and Eve, he didn't make Adam and Steve.

    Yeah fair enough, well im not one of these strung up religious types though, you know the ones that only strictly stick to the religious side of things, generally i try and be as open minded as possible (although i struggle sometimes )... Having said this, if im 50-50, i'll normally err on the side of my religious beliefs.

    Fair enough, although you really can't help who you fall in love with (as I discovered this year) and people shouldn't be punished for loving someone just because they are of the same sex. That doesn't make them any less deserving of the recognition granted to male & female couples.

    Agree. I don't really want to watch but if that's what they want, go for it.

    exactly. It’s not as if they woke up one day and realised they were gay

    Yeah it's difficult because of the fact that its such a physical thing, you cannot really control or decide who you're attracted to, you just are. But it seems to be spreading really and i don't think it should be encouraged, but then again if i had a kid when i was older who was gay i don't know how i'd react.

    well this argument is pretty futile as noone’s really going to change their opinion. So im just going to leave with what I entered with- If two people love each other, they should be allowed to marry, fullstop.

    Heterosexual sex isn't progressive either though, in all likelihood both heterosexual and gay sex have been around since day one. However, I don't go along with the anyone being 'made' scenario so.....if you believe we were made instead of evolving though then it certainly wouldn't work with Adam and Steve haha. Mind you, in that case, we're also all related.....

    Hmm. That may be the case - however, gays are a) in a minority, so they wouldn't destroy the human species by them having with each other, and b) they're not hurting others if they're allowed to have with each other. It seems to be a natural process - and whoever comes here and tells me gays are attention seekers - why on earth would they WANT to be a member of a persecuted minority?
