    I don't think anyone has suggested that churches should be forced to perform same sex weddings. What people want is gay couples to be allowed a secular wedding ceremony in a registry office just like any straight couple. No one is asking the Catholic Church to change their position on gay marriage.
    Perhaps I've got the wrong end of the stick, then. My view, as a Catholic, is that gays should be treated like everyone else, but in terms marriage, a gay marriage shouldn't have the same sanctity as heterosexual one. I think they should be recognised by the law, but not by the Church or any organisation that preaches homosexuality is a sin etc etc

    I won't discriminate them.But I'm afraid I'll have to respectfully decline if I am asked permition to be boarded from the rear.

    I work on the philosophy: Your rights end where mine start but there's no need to be unkind....Unless they scream homophobe at anyone who dare oppose them.
    Peace Tom
    That is so to the point; spot on. I'm with u on that.

    Why should a perfectly happy couple not be allowed to adopt kids when they are more likely going to give the child a better life compared to where it had been, stuck in a children's home?

    Ok, so I was googling some stuff earlier cos I was bored and I was disgusted to see some people's views, especially in the Western world saying that gay people shouldn't get equal rights and that they shouldn't express their sexuality publicly. This has really angered me and I just wanted other people's opinions on it?

    What's your opinions on gay marriage and gay adoption too?
    Yes, they shouldn't get equal rights. Not to say that a gay man's life is worth less than one who is straight. But gay people adopting children, bringing them up is a very disturbing thought. The child would be thoroughly confused and have a distorted image of how society operates. Not to mention the stigma that is likely to be attached to a child of a gay couple. This is the main reason I have problems with embracing homosexuality completely.
    I simply cannot imagine children being raised by gay couples. To deny them that right would be discriminating against them, which is why cohabitation of gay couples must be restricted to a certain extent.

    Gay people are fewer in number where we need them most, i.e. developing countries - or at least they dont come out as gay. The West needs population growth, gay people don't help. (Im not trying to be amusing at all!)

    I'm not "judging" any group or anything, but you have to understand that its sort of a universal rule for marriage to be between a man and a woman - thats how reproduction takes place, thats what mother nature wants it to operate. Any attempt to reverse that would lead to chaos and a breakdown of society - in the sense that we have to completely change our idea of the concept of a 'family', of society in general.

    Apart from that, a gay man minding his own business is just like any other man to me.

    To be honest, I'm starting to think that heterosexuals (on tsr atleast) are more obsessed about the well-being and rights of homosexuals than homosexuals themselves.

    I have no opinion whatsoever on "gay people" as a group, similar to that I have no opinion on "white people", "straight people", "bi people", "black people", "transgender people" etc.

    There are some gay people I like and some I don't.

    As for what I think of people being gay... er, again, I really don't have an opinion. That's someone's preference and I have no right to say whether it's bad or not.


    From what you've written in the OP I think it's pathetic that gay people don't have gay rights... I don't see how sexual orientation is anyone's business and if people are stupid and ignorant enough to letting homosexuality be a problem they are clearly outtathetimez and narrow minded

    Well they're still denied some rights in the UK, Gay men (or any man who has sex with a man) are banned from giving blood. Surely they test the blood before they send them off, it's like saying any black people who've migrated here from Africa can't give blood because there's loads of AIDS in Africa, it's ridiculous!

    I think "that's not for me, but I have no problem with them whatsoever". I should think they feel exactly the same about straight people.

    Very rude..

    Anyway, children in homes need a stable, heterosexual environment. These children are especially vulnerable and shouldn't be exposed to homosexuality at an early age. Don't you think that the children have been through enough without being torn to **** by bullies at school?
    Just because the gay people may be happy and are able to give the child more emotionally and aesthetically, doesn't mean that they are fit to parent these children. There are of course exceptions, but for the most part I am correct. No other opinion need bee expressed.

    Fair enough. I don't think anyone has suggested they should.
