Do you think that child molestors want to have the urges they have
I'm sorry to say this but you have gone away from the topic by a long mile. Child molestors have a PATHOLOGICAL problem. Gay people are normal and do not have any pathological urges what so ever. Being gay is not pathological.
homosexual behavior is a risky lifestyle
There is no such thing as homosexual behavior and heterosexual behavior... Let me give you a few examples so you do understand.
Gay people smoke, Heterosexual people smoke
Gay people dance, Heterosexual dance
Gay people have sex, Heterosexual people have sex
Gay people have chidlren, Heterosexual people have children
I don't understand where you got the idea with homosexual behavior... The only difference between homosexual and heterosexual is their sexuality which doesn't relate to a risky lifestyle. A risky lifestyle is a choice made by both homosexuals and heterosexuals. Your words just prove that you do not understand gay people at all. They are normal human beings just like you. You are talking about gay people like they are aliens or something.
It is harmful and there are plenty of stats
Well sorry to contradict you again, but it just happens that I did study psychology and had long discussions in college about gay people.
I don't know what stats you are talking about, but Dutch psychologists have already completed a lot of studies over long period of time such as 10 years or more and let me tell you one of the most surprising findings: gay people are better parents than heterosexuals, at least in Holland anyways. Needless to say that that homosexuality is harmful if you choose to do harmful things.
If Gay people want to be in unions, I don't agree, but I also don't beleive in forcing my view on them. Marriage however, dating through the history of our country, has ALWAYS been between one man and one woman. As a married person, I hold the institution of marriage in high regard. As I am sure many married people do. If gay marriage is legalized then it undermines the institution for myself and millions of others. So, what you suggest is to trample all over my rights to appease homosexuals. Maybe homosexuals should 'tolerate' the institution of marriage. And stop discriminating against people like myself.
So what if history has always been like that? You have a problem with change just because it doesn't suit your vision of how marriage should be? I'm sorry to hear that, but it ain't my fault.
I don't understand how it undermines your marriage... Your marriage won't disappear into thin air...
What rights are you talking about? Your rights would continue to be the same... I don't understand your point here.
How are gay people discriminating against you? Just because they want to be treated equally? Maybe you make a travel through time when Christians were persecuted and killed because all they wanted was to be considered equal.
PS: And you avoided the most important aspect of the discussion: God created people and some of them turned gay. So I think that gay people should be treated equally and given the same rights as others.
