As a Christian, I don't hate Gays, I just will not be supporting this movement

First of all I don't want any personal attacks that may present itself to be hostile.

I just feel like this is a religious based country and that homosexuals should not try to change that just because their little minority has feelings

That also does not refute the basis that there is freedom to practice any religion.

In the old testament there is a whole chapter on guidelines of how and who to love.

Although that may be somewhat true we as Christians must take the Bible as whole context instead of small excerpts that that we may like to hear

Well I don't condone any of these actions at all to begin with. If you should commit any of these sins you should repent and that's the problem with homosexuality. It is not something that you could be sorry for.

just a question, why is it that a we have male and female restrooms, all male and all female prisons, and all boy and all girl schools? when you have the right to show interest to people of your same sex?
if in a restroom its ok for a gay guy and a straight guy to pee near each other, why is it not ok for a male and a female?
in prisons why are (the majority of the time) females and males separated, when males and males together homosexuality is tolerated?
why is it that all boys/girls schools are done to seperate boys and girls when homosexual boys are permitted and homosexual girls are permitted?

Man was made for woman, and woman for man. In one of your rebuttals, you said "we as Christians" obviously stating that you are a Christian. If you believe in the same God as I do, and read the same Bible as I do, you would know that homosexuality is wrong. It says in the Bible that homosexuality is abomination.

Leviticus 18:22, "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination."

I also see a lot of people saying things like, "I was 15 when I realized I was gay." People claim they were born gay, when really they just decide thats how they want to live. There is no disease that makes someone have a strong attraction to the opposite gender, or anything else for that matter that "forces" someone to be gay. It's a temptation some people experience. We are all tempted to do things as humans, but that doesn't mean we are forced to.

My opinion on all of this is that being homosexual is a choice. And it's not a right choice. The reason people are so against it is because it goes against everything that we are supposed to find morally right. God made something beautiful; a sexual relationship between man and woman. It's simple, elegant, and was made perfect. Going against it seems very wrong to me.

I don't hate the people, I hate the sin. I want to see people turn from it and find the beauty in relationships, not encourage it and make everything that much more complicated.

That doesn't necessarily mean we have to make this a country wide problem and even cause a problem where there was no problems with Gays not getting married

Then follow all of it. Don't lie, or cheat. It says all of this stuff and the only thing you are complaining about is Homosexuality

Although America does NOT do a very good job with it, there is a separation between church and government. MOST people who do not approve feel this way because of religious views. America is a melting pot. We are a combination of many. It is a little ridiculous to say any one religion is correct because of the amount of different religions. If we want others to respect our beliefs, shouldn't we respect theirs as well? Gay marriage is not a "lgbtq right" it is a HUMAN right. In some religions it is wrong, and people believe marriage should be between man and woman. Marriage was not created by Christians. And it is not in ones power to control what another person does. America is supposed to be a "land of the free". But I think for the most part in our country's history we have put that statement to shame.
Interracial marriage became legal in 1967. In today's society, only a very small percent of people are against it but at the time it became legal I can only imagine it was exactly how things are today with gay marriage. Regardless of your beliefs if you are an American and you are against gay marriage you are essentially against human rights and freedom and are going against what America is supposed to be about.

That is a really interesting thing - why is our society like this? I think this could possibly change someday when our society becomes accepting of homosexuality. And for anyone who thinks it won't happen, think again. There are many things our society has frowned upon that now are accepted.

As for the people who claim God doesn't like gays I think you should read your holy scripture. For example the bible actually condemns shrimp, yes shrimp, more than it does the homosexual. Are you going to start a campaign against shrimp now? I doubt it. Black people, white and Asian are all getting to the point where they are equal so why not LGBTQ who is anyone to say one love is more pure or more 'right' than another.
