Why are some religious folks so worried about homosexuality anyway?

What business is it of theirs/yours?


Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

Belief gets in the way of learning--Robert A. Heinlein

How can I possibly put a new idea into your heads, if I do not first remove your delusions?--Robert A. Heinlein

It's not what we don't know that hurts, it's what we know that ain't so--Will Rogers

If I am entitled to something, someone else is obliged to pay--Jerry Pournelle

If a religion's teachings are true, then it should have nothing to fear from science...--dwise1

"Multiculturalism" does not include the American culture. That is what it is against.

What business is it of yours what other people do?

Who appointed you to enforce god's laws?

Why don't you just leave other people alone, eh?

I don't understand your point. If the people voted, the court had no right to overturn it. This is supposed to be a nation of, by and for the people, so it has been said. Apparently no longer.

So, the majority of people can vote to enslave the minority (any minority)????

What country are you from?

On sin...
It's homosexual acts that are the sin, sorry if I wasn't clear, and those can be repented of. I admit it must be hard, but heterosexuals also have to deny themselves sex outside of legitimate marriage.

Sin lies only in hurting other people unnecessarily. All other "sins" are invented nonsense. (Hurting yourself is not sinful -- just stupid.)
