Sin...is sin....is sin...is sin. All are bad in God's eyes. Whether it be homosexuality, murder, stealing, coveting, whatever else you can think of. No one is bigger or worse than the other. According to the Bible (whether you agree with it, dont agree with it, dont care, whatever)... it states that homosexuality is an abomination to God. No one is telling anyone they have to believe that, it just is what it is. But all sin is. And it is always hate the sin not the sinner. I think homosexuality is a sin, that is my personal opinion and no one elses. However, having said that, I know quite a few gays and lesbians, some of whom I am friends with some I am not; but either way I dont hate them, I dont talk about them, I dont constantly push the bible in their faces to get them to see the error of their ways...they know where I stand on the issue, I know where they stand; doesnt mean we dont get along great. Doesnt mean that I dont think they are fantastic people. I just dont agree with their lifestyle and choose not to do that for myself. It's really not that difficult a concept to understand.
England has different laws than we do; this wouldn't happen here and to pretend it would is nothing more than conservative paranoia.

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
Very simply, religion is protected and it's a choice. So I don't see why we need to worry whether it's a choice or not.
The interesting thing to me is this: yes, you can be born into a religion (especially highly inherited religions like Judaism and Catholicism) - but you can choose as an adult to reject your religion or alter it.
So why do we worry about whether homosexuality is a choice? Why do we get so worked up over how people want to take part in romantic relationships?
