    Some people don't accept it because of their religion, and some just don't think it's natural.

    It is the same reason why some people are racist. They are bigoted and fear anyone that is different from them.

    It is not natural, it is not how humans are meant to be. I have nothing against gay people but it should not be encouraged. It is a defect and we should stop celebrating it.

    I am an atheist btw.

    Then stop using medicines, cars, electricity... I could go on and on. There is so much in this world that is unnatural. If you want to get rid of unnatural stuff, why don't you start with those.

    I have nothing against queers, I just do not like the promotion of it via TV programmes such as corronation street and Eastenders which greatly over represents gay people, there is nothing wrong with it but i do not want it shoved down everyones neck. I bet if you compared the gay characters in coronation street with the national trends they are greatly over representative.

    wut lol
    how is any of that relevant

    Those are things that we as an advanced, intelligent species, have deliberately created in order to better ourselves and our species. We now live longer, healthier, and safer lives as a result.

    How does homosexuality benefit anyone? It means someone is incapable of fulfilling their goal in life. Gay people are a failure of nature. No offence.

    By "natural" I don't mean it is physically unnatural, evidently it exists and does not seem like it was man made. But it is not healthy or normal, in the same way that any other defect or illness is not healthy despite it being naturally caused.
    sorry I dont know why that was posted as anonymous. I am replying to you.

    There is a huge difference between accepting and supporting something. Generally speaking I think most people in the west, even religious people, accept homosexuality is here, it's a thing, it's practised, people are protected etc etc. However do I or some other people support it, encourage it or agree with it? Absolutely not, that is the key difference here.

    Most people accept Islam as a religion, it's here and it's practised, do they agree and support it though? No probably not.

    And now you are calling homosexuality an illness. Me being gay doesn't harm anyone. Does oral sex or sex for fun help anyone? And what is the goal in life? To have children? So people that can't have children have also failed?

    you can't compare a religion - which people choose to follow to sexual orientation; not a choice

    anybody who thinks being gay is unnatural is clearly using flawed ideology.

    firstly, what even defines natural? because homosexuality is all around us. it's extremely common in the animal kingdom and scientists have even found certain genes which may be linked to homosexuality. so if anybody mentions it's not natural.... then where the heck do you get that from?

    It's a common misunderstanding that people choose to follow a religion. To demonstrate this I challenge you to genuinely believe in Islam for 1 week, to genuinely with all your heart believe Allah is God.

    Point I'm making is faith comes from the heart. It's simply not a choice.

    95% of the time faith comes from indoctrination through your parents, if you were born with Christian parents you would be a Christian.
