    I don't understand why it bothers people.

    I'm not a christian so don't take what I say as me trying to be rude when I say this...I know that its supposedly wrong to be anything other than straight but isn't true that you're supposed to accept and care for everyone? If that's true, why can't you let go of the fact that...

    I believe that GOD will not turn down

    or frown upon any type of love, despite who's giving or receiving it. As long as it is love, I think he smiles. Seeming GOD has no gender himself, I don't think gender preference is a pressing issue for him. His love exceeds gender lines, so why would our love on earth not be...

    Guys, if you are homophobic,

    you shouldn't be... Follow me here, that is two more guys that you don't have to compete with for a lady's attention. Ladies, the same goes for you too... There is enough strife in this world and much larger concerns to burn your calories on than what others choose to do with...

    i think the homophobic thing is just insecurity

    of their own sexuality.. they may be gay or bi but they don't want to come out or even accept that they like members of their own sex. so they try to avoid anything that reminds them of it or gives them some ideas. basically they don't want to admit to themselves or anybody...

    My mother is a Godly Christian woman,

    bless her heart, but I'm not. A few nights ago we were watching Jeopardy together and making small talk in between, and the subject of homosexuals came up because we always try to pinpoint who's gay on the show. There was a man who was married but seriously sounded gay, and she...

    I Could Never Understand Homophobes

    I have never had an issue with people in the LGBT community. At ten years old my favourite tv couple was an LGBT couple. Since then I became more and more aware of LGBT rights and the problems they face. Even at that age I could not understand how people could treat others...

    v=8n5O9tz30So This is my opinion. While it's not completely about homosexuality, it's about all sexual acts, including homosexual ones. Basically, you are not part of it, so it does not affect you. Therefore, you have no right to care! Why do you care what two guys do in their...

    They are people who like the same sex.

    .. What is wrong with that? They do nothing to hurt you, they just want love. I don't care what your book says about them either.

    and when ever we hear about gay people on tv they always say that something isn't right with then, like they're retarded and that they will go to Hell, and that offends me, I'm not gay but I still don't think that you should be talking like that about anyone

    Ok first of all those who say being gay is a sin, the bible says a lot of things like don't lie, don't cheat.. etc and 99% of the religious people have done that, so thats not an excuse to hate gays. IF being gay is a sin then they are bigger sinners. If I do go to hell for...

    Homophobia is a phobia, a fear. People don't see a gay, lesbian or bisexual and run away from them like some people would with arachnophobia. No, it's literally ignorance. I hope I don't sound sexist, and I'm sure this is the same with girls, but I've met a lot of 'homophobic...
