    Friends, please read this post,

    Gays should be greatly equally I don't

    understand why people find that concept so hard to grasp. This is coming from a Christian too.

    I feel like everyone deserves a chance to be

    happy. The bible should have nothing to do with it. I apologize if I offend anyone, but it's a book. Written so long ago. The world has changed dramatically since then. The bible says you're not supposed to have sex before marriage. Were Adam and Eve married? No. They weren't...

    Reason why gay can't get married in a Catholic

    Church is bc marriage is made for procreation and since two guys or two girls can't achieve that they say they can't, but a 90 year old women and man can still get married ?? It shouldn't mater if you like girls or boys In my opinion it doesn't matter (Need anyone to talk to...

    If your kid is LGBT and you just can't

    "understand" it then think about this: finding out you're "different" from everyone else, being told by countless people that god will not love or accept you is very, very hard. You aren't a failure as a parent if your kid is gay. You, however, are a pretty crappy parent if you...

    how some people hate or don't like gays, lesbians, etc. It's so normal to see a straight person be like "Ew he's gay, what a f*ggot." and stuff like that but you never see a gay or lesbian go up to a straight person and be like "ew, he/she is straight." It's not right. If...

    Why are gay people still looked down upon?

    not only do I support gay rights but I support human rights. We should be able to live the way we want to and do whatever makes us happy. we're given the right to the pursuit of happiness so no matter what sexuality you are, you should be able to be happy.
