    I have a question, which one has more bearing, the New testament or the Old one?
    Some denominations consider them equivalent though others disregard the OT on the basis that the NT supersedes it.

    1 not a Christian,
    2 I am gay.
    3 I am pro gay marriage

    Any who, I am aware of the debate surrounding the new testement statements about homosexuality. I dont claim to be an expert but I am aware of a bit about this stuff. Truthfully I have seen some convincing arguements for a more liberal interpretation of the new testement.
    It doesn't matter mate - this is an open discussion.

    Thing is, even if there's a definite interpretation on this, people will still carry on with what they already believe (which is based on the OT, when two Roman emperors started executing homosexuals).

    Really? Intravenous drug users? Then why have campaigns like ABC (Abstinance, Be faithful and Correct use of Condoms) dramatically reduced the number of cases? None of these behaviour are to do with drug use and in some countries more than halved the number of cases in 10 years.

    And that 10 times likihood is false. Gay men in london are 10 times more likely, gay men outside of london have lower instances, gay women have much lower incidences.

    But don't you feel there is a noticeable turn in Christian attitudes towards homosexuality.

    Government report on HIV in the UK, detailing that gay men exclusively were the most at risk, with london having the highest proportion of cases.

    Probably yes - that doesn't mean it's anywhere near being okay. I believe it's mostly based on the liberal and more secular Christians who do not pay much attention to the religion either.

    Why not?

    Because you literally haven't answered it? I'm asking your reasoning for it, nothing more than that.

    Some things are better not said. I,ve seen someone who support incest...Mother and son, father/daughter relationship after all, they are adults and should have the freedom to do whatever they want.

    I don't support same sex marriage....period.

    So basically, you're not going to justify your stance. That seems fairly telling.

    I am very happy for there to be same sex marriages. I can't wait for the first same sex divorces to start filtering through the system.
    Why should they be happy.😆(joke)
    I wonder who will get to stay in the home with the kids and who will get to take on a second job and live in a bedsit?😱

    Yes.

    Same Sex marriage hurts no one and homosexual/bisexual people should have the right to marry who they love. There is no real reason to deny them that.

    Also I love my girlfriend.

    It doesn't harm anyone, Love is love and it is taking away rights from the LGBT community.
    If they dont believe in God what do they want to be married for? why isnt Civil Partnership sufficient?

    Marriage is a legal construct recognizing two families combining to produce offspring to continue the family genes - homosexual relationships do not yet fulfill this criteria.

    Love - prove that you know what 'love' is, even peadophiles say they 'love' children.
    Bestials say they 'love' animals - should they marry too? and why do they break up so much if they are so 'in' love'?

    We need to find a cure for these most unfortunate ppl, until then they will continue thinking that they are normal and cause decent society endless problems. Mo I DONT AGREE WITH SAME SEX MARRIAGE!

    Some LGBT+ people like me believe in God. Civil partnerships are considered lesser than marriage by many people.

    Marriage is a legal recognition of a loving relationship. By your reasoning, infertile people shouldn't be allowed to get married.

    Two adults in a romantic relationship can know that they love each other. Both parties can express their love for each other.

    Heterosexual people frequently break up as well. It's not unique to one specific sexuality.

    Gay people don't need curing. They aren't ill. Explain one problem caused by gay people. STDs are neither caused by gay people nor are they exclusive to them.
