Are you for gay couples/marriage?

Are you for or against gay couples/marriage or the LGBT community? If so, why? Please try to keep it clean. Personally, I am for it but don't worry about my opinion, I want to hear yours. And please no hating against straights or gays.

All for it. Even the church my parents drug me to when I was a kid had no problems with homosexuality. My parents always had immense sympathy for them. And I've been friends with people all over the LGBT spectrum.

And personally, I don't want to marry, but if gay people want to, they should definitely have the right.

Actually, I'm not FOR or AGAINST. It's THEIR right to live their lives as they wish, with whom they wish. They have the right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness ... there's a "piece of paper" that says so.

Your question doesn't make sense.

I don't care about "gay couples", as long as they behave civilly.

I'm against the so-called gay marriage thing, because I think it's an artificial construct which serves no other purpose than to promote their agenda.

A very small percentage of gays have gotten married since it's been legalized, so gay "marriage" is really not about marriage at all.

So your point of view is that gay marriage is just pushing an agenda? Don't forget only <1 percent of the population is homosexual, so that might be a factor in such a small amount of them getting married. Why do you think that since such a small amount of gays have gotten married means that it isn't marriage at all? the proportions of couples:married couples might be the same between heteros and homos. I'll do a bit of research, thanks for the answer. I'm not asking these questions to be hostile, I just want to learn about others' point of view. Thank you

Here's how this normally goes

"It's not natural"

"Penguins show gay tendencies"

"spiders eat their mates after coitus, what's that got to do with human beings?"

Argument devolves into shouting match


As it stands, the law can say whatever it wants about the legality (indirectly the morality) of homosexuality, I personally find the practice abhorrent. but mine is a nation of freedom, and so long as it stays that way, I am not allowed to have qualms about the pleasure of others. I suppose in the end it's like Mormons not drinking alcohol. I personally have no issue with it's consumption. but they would find the practice abhorrent.

Romans 1:27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
