Yes I have command to love everyone as a Christian, and I honestly try to do that (I fail sometime as a human), believe me I love my gay and lesbian friends. However I am totally against them getting married. Many of you asked, why people could be against some innocent loving people getting into marriage, well the reason is because marriage is defined by God, and the founders of this country as ďa covenant between one man and one womanĒ, and there is a strong reason behind it. however if you choose not to believe this, than there is nothing wrong in gay marriage, but there are people who believe that marriage is a covenant meant for life, and it has many rules and regulations.
There are people who believe in something called open marriage, and they have a reason to say why they believe it, but may be most of us wonít agree for that, because we think marriage is between only two people. In the same way ,we believe marriage is suppose to be between a man and a women, That is why I think gay marriage should not be legalized.
Also there are many many research coming that is explaining the link between homosexual relationship and AIDS, sexually transmitted disease, drug dependency, mental illness, what not( I am in no way saying all the gay couple are prone for this) but we all agree with the ratio right?
Now if you want me to explain more, I can but I guess I proved my point, but please donít mistaken me by thinking, I hate gay people, I donít, but I donít approve their actions, One other person asked shouldnít we love them, is that not what Jesus told us, yes Jesus did say love everyone, but He never said affirm every behavior. Simply we love sinners but hate sin (I know I am a sinner too).
Thank you all for letting me explain my side of the argument, and I am open for comments and criticism, but pls donít curse. Thanks again.

The comment highlighted is what I want to focus on. I'm not sure where you get your facts or information, so please feel free to enlighten me, but, when the AIDS epidemic first broke, it was meant as a means to identify MEN who were engaging is Homosexual relationships outside the marriage. Now this is complete conspiracy theory, but it is the one that has made the most sense from what I have read. What the researchers did not take into account was that these men that were cheating on their wives with other men would then go home to their wives and spread the disease. (Now once again, complete conspiracy theory that I read.),00.html

Drug dependency has nothing to do with Sexual orientation. Nor does mental illness. (Mental illness is the field in which I'm obtaining my PhD for practice. ) Now if you look at Mental Illness and/or Drug Dependency you will find that MOST of these are from hereditary issues. If you have a parent who was addicted to Alcohol or Drugs, MOST likely you will face the same afflictions. If you have a family member who has suffered from Alzheimer's or Huntington's chances are you will have that illness later in life.

That being said, sexuality is not a hereditary marker. It is not congenital. It is a marker in your DNA that has been set there from the time you are in the womb being created by GOD, for those who don't believe in God-sorry for the statement, to come into this world. It is not a chemical imbalance in the brain. It is not a disease that can be treated. We are not in the 50's or 60's anymore where people who are homosexuals are sent to mental illness facilities to "cure" them.

This is not meant to offend anyone, but when comments are being stated that are going into areas that I am studying, I have to put in my 2 cents. Everyone has a right to believe what they believe, however when you are stating contradictions in your comments it does raise eyebrows.
