Its just a part of life. If people are against God then you can expect people to be against anything. No matter what you do whether its good or bad. Theres always someone who will have something negative to say about it.
It is not devotion to just a book it is devotion to a real living god that made us how els could every thing be so perfect and fit like the worlds biggest puzzle scientist have said many times that more times than they can count this earth should already have been destroyed thrown out of orbit but for some reason all of these things aren't happening and these are some of the things atheist scientist have said.
Different perspective. These groups are defective. (In this particular case it is their sexual orientation) The concept of marriage is blurred by societal groups who are looking for a reason to be 'accepted' in the norm of society. The only simple way I can explain this would be to use an analogy of a pornographer. If a pornographer pushed the legislative to have 'porn' approved as a legitimate then they would be able to use the different variants of porn (child, bestiality, abuse, degradation, etc etc etc) as further reason for allowing pornography. To bring the conversation back to origination, Porn (as the example here) has already been 'legitimized' but with heavy censorship, and controls. Just like alternative lifestyles, it is perfectly fine (in the closet) out of sight, and out of the mainstream. But, with our current political wind, it will most likely be approved, and pushed upon the rest of us. Funny, a huge minority has it's collective will imposed upon the majority. This is NOT how politics is supposed to work
Because many see it as an affront to natural order, and the teachings of their religions. In many Muslim nations, homosexuality is viewed as a death sentence by stoning or worse. Until judicial activism is reigned in, we'll only see more of these acts of fixing societal problems, with knee jerk responses from our courts.
I'm against it, because there is a hidden agenda. If you need to hide your agenda, then you must think there is something wrong with it. Until I know what the TRUE purpose is, I can't support it. Why do I think it is a hidden agenda? It has been called "civil unions," with the participants being called "domestic partners." They should be lobbying and legislating to have that deemed equal to marriage, but they are saying that isn't good enough. Why is it not good enough? What makes that a violation of their rights? Is the agenda to then FORCE churches to perform gay marriages, the way they are trying to force churches to pay for birth control? I don't know.
Same sex marriage has been legal in my state for years. The sky hasn't fallen. Most everyone here is so over it. Families just raise their kids in peace and respect each other's rights. What is so hard to understand about treating others as you want to be treated?
because its different from their view and people don't like different. some of the oppose it because they see it as unnatural, other due to religious reasons. all we can do is feel sorry for them because of their narrow view, and love them anyway. :)
