Homosexuality as with all things human is neither right or wrong, it simply is. Persecuting people for who they are is why America was founded and finally seceded from the E…nglish empire. Any person stating Homosexuality is wrong is flying in the face of American tradition. Some people believe that Homosexuals are also all sorts of nasty things. As a crime against nature, people are sadly misled or mistaken, virtually every social animal that mates for life (or significant portion) has examples of same sex pairings. Join the 21 century and realise that the good upstanding straight people will no longer stand for abuse and discrimination of gays. Why should it matter to anybody if some ones gay or not they live the way they want to and they shoudnt be put down for it so the way i see it if they want to be gay then let them cuz its their choice no one elses so lay off of them.

Every two years the Human Rights Campaign, the largest national gay and lesbian organization, issues a scorecard for members of the Senate based on their sponsorship and voting on key issues of importance to gay and lesbian citizens. Barack Obama scored 89 out of 100% in the 2006 scorecard. Here's how HRC rated Barack Obama:. Barack Obama on Hate Crimes: .

Barack Obama believes gays and lesbians should have the same rights to adopt children as heterosexuals.. Barack Obama and Gay Marriage/ Civil Unions: . Although Barack Obama has said that he supports civil unions, he is against gay marriage. In an interview with the Chicago Daily Tribune, Obama said, "I'm a Christian. And so, although I try not to have my religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views on this issue, I do believe that tradition, and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman.". Barack Obama did vote against a Federal Marriage Amendment and opposed the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996.. He said he would support civil unions between gay and lesbian couples, as well as letting individual states determine if marriage between gay and lesbian couples should be legalized.. "Giving them a set of basic rights would allow them to experience their relationship and live their lives in a way that doesn't cause discrimination," Obama said. "I think it is the right balance to strike in this society." Sources: Chicago Daily Tribune, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force
Yes, there as been plenty of it in human history. It needs to end.
Homosexuality is not a crime in most of the developed world. However, homosexual acts are illegal in some countries. In the United States, they are not illegal if performed …in private between consenting adults.
I think about 55% of America does.
It was a mixture of reasons. They were not able to carry out his master plan. Sure, he willingly accepted their help in setting things up, but once things started rolling, he …had little use for them. They just could not produce all the blonde-haired, blue-eyed people he was so fond of. Why did he think Aryans were so superior? Did he find Aryan men to be attractive? That brings us to another point. Then there is what was probably the main issue. He was most likely gay too. History has it that he put some of his best right-hand men to death. He probably did certain things with them, and he may have feared extortion. Dead people cannot extort others or use someone's orientation to manipulate them, so this could have been his motives in having them put to death. He wanted to project a particular image of himself and his country, and gayness didn't fit into it. Just like some historians speculate that he was part Jewish and hated Jews in part because of that, his view of gay people was likely similar. He couldn't accept that in himself.
If god made everyone, then he made gay people (who do not choose their sexuality). "And god saw everything that he had made, and it was good."
Because, in the bible, Adam was paired with Eve , who was a woman . He was not paired with another Adam. Roman Catholic Answer You must first look at whether you are t…alking about a homosexual orientation or a homosexual lifestyle. They are two different things. The Church has always taught that homosexual acts are sinful as this is the teaching that she has received from God and from the natural law. The Church has taught consistently that homosexual acts are gravely disordered, in other words, this is a sin. Homosexuals, in themselves, are just people, like everyone else, called to be perfect by Jesus Christ and His Church. The Church condemns most vehemently any unjust discrimination and offers them the sacraments, just as It does for everybody, in order to live a Christian life. So many things, in the present day, are celebrated as "rights" or "freedoms", for instance, the pro-choice movement. But all "pro-choice" has always been a sin, and the Church is teaching the same thing today that it did centuries ago, holding fast to the revelation given it by Jesus Christ, even when that is against the current culture. The Church has always stood against the current culture, even in ancient Rome when it was actually considered scandalous that the Christians didn't expose their babies (for death). from The Catechism of the Catholic Church , second edition, English translation 1994 . 2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, (Cf. Gen. 19:1-29; Rom 1:24-27; 1 Cor 6:10; 1 Tim 1:10) tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered." (Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Persona humana 8) they are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved. 2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition. 2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection..
The "government", depending on which government you're askingabout, doesn't have anything against homosexuals. Some of thepeople in some governments have a "shifting of author…ity" type ofcoping mechanism, and they shift authority on the subject of whoone is "allowed" to love sexually to their imaginary friend andtheir imaginary friend's rules.
Because he probably had gay feelings and couldn't accept them in himself. They couldn't carry out his vision for a "super race," and neither could he contribute to it for that… matter. Plus he probably feared extortion. We've heard of many who spoke out against homosexuality and were later exposed as gay by former gay lovers. So some historians conjecture that Hitler was living a double life and killed some of those with whom he may have had sexual relations.
Many people feel differently toward others based upon sexual orientation. Has many aspects of rearing, environment, etc. My personal opinion Personally, I am not agains…t homosexuality. It is as natural as being heterosexual and simply another point on the continuum of the sexual orientation spectrum. This is backed up by numerous research, including the American Psychological Association and Dr Alfred Kinsey. Being gay is not a choice. Just as heterosexuals did not wake up one day deciding to be straight, I didn't wake up one day deciding to be gay. It isn't something I have control over. I also believe that all the social taboo and homophobia is immensely influenced by conservative religious organisations. In particular, the Roman Catholic Church and Islam are two of the greatest barriers yet to be overcome in our pursuit for a modern society.

The BSA does not feel that homosexuality is consistent with its values. It therefore exercises its right as a private organization to not include them.
In Religion & Spirituality
Well, the bible clearly states that homosexuality is an abomination against God himself, as well as his laws. For instance, here are a few verses for proof of where it can be …found in the bible: You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. (NKJV, Leviticus 18:22) If a man lies with a male as he would with a woman, both of them have committed abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. (Leviticus 20:13) So there you have it, homosexuality IS against God's laws.
In Gay Lesbian and Bisexual
Yes. Anyone can discriminate against anyone.
First, it should be noted that there are numerous Non-Muslims whooppose homosexuality. For example, the strongest opposition tohomosexuality in the Americas has consistently c…ome fromEvangelical Christians. As for why Muslims oppose homosexuality, itis because Muslims believe that it is a sin against God asdescribed in the Qur'an.
