This I was taught as a child, and 70 years later I agree, more or less.
On homosexuality, I'd say its not normal, do you agree ?
And I disagree that morals and common sense are "decaying", and I think people do have a better idea of what they are today as opposed to yesterday.
The truly abnormal folks are the people who fear other people on the basis of race, gender, or sexual preference.

Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
In a secular world, it is ok. But in terms of traditional Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, it is a sin. Many state that God "loves", which makes everything ok, but that is not the only piece of the puzzle. In the religious sense, you must also obey the scriptures. Yes, some scriptures have been modernized, but that is not precedent enough to change even more scripture. I have been researching different sects of Christianity, and I can't help but notice that a lot of the modernized sects seem vaguely similar to general liberalism. Those who call themselves Christians must remember that God is not tolerant of sin. Even now, I saw a segment on the Bill O'Rielly show where he believes he's a Christian, yet thinks that believing in hell as it was intended is an "extreme" position.
If you're not religious, then the prior paragraph is incomprehendable to you. There are secular arguments that can be made against homosexuality, but I think the most important one is the traditional religious argument against it. Just because you're gay doesn't mean I hate you; I merely deem it a sin. It's not what I would deem as a high-ranking sin, but a sin none-the-less. But I suppose with my traditional morality it makes me completely illogical and incapable of being a part of the intelligentsia. No matter; thank goodness those who have religious beliefs can vote democratically in America.
Abnormal means not the norm, so yes.
Abnormal would be the only answer.

Your votes simply aim to reduce society to a dichotomous, teleological philosophy of virtue and vice rather than embracing an ethical system based upon simple reasoning and the natural human capacities to empathize.

Of course they are abnormal. Anything other than usual is abnormal.
