    I teach my 4 year old to love others.

    Yes, I have gay friends and family members. And my child treats them like she does everyone else. My kid doesn't see gay, straight, black or white. She sees human beings. Because that is what I teach her. I teach her that nobody is the same and that we are all different.

    If "Jesus", which I do not support

    nor believe in, considers gay marriage a sin, then what is the point of Jesus forgiving your sins? If he forgives sins, then he should ve able to accept gays. The bible is all based on belief. You cannot change who you are. If you're attracted or in love with someone of the same...

    My sister is a lesbian

    and my husband's brother is gay. We both grew up with the acceptance of our siblings, therefore we both support same sex relationships and marriage. It was such a relief meeting a man who sees eye to eye with me on this subject.

    People protest homosexuality because,

    according to them, the Bible says it's wrong. If that's the case, why don't they protest divorce?

    Being gay is a sin? Well

    This is so exciting that gay marriage is

    now legal. I think it's great couples are given the right to marry whoever they wish. And not a damn thing anybody can do about it. Yes I support gay marriage. I also support gay couples having children, whether it's thru surrogacy or adoption.
