While the public is divided over same sex marriage, a majority of americans say that homosexuality should be accepted rather than discouraged, by society. The bible says marriage should be between a man and a woman; however, marriage is based on the love two people feel for each other. “ Homosexuality is wrong because the bible says so!” but doesn 't he bible also state “Love your neighbor and yourself” (Mark 12 : 31)? So why is it that some homophobes justify their homophobia with “the bible says so!” but forget about about all of the other sins, the sins being forgotten?

Years of research suggest that people cannot change their sexual orientation because they want to and that trying can cause mental anguish. In a gross over simplification you 're labeling a fully formed human being. Denying any emotional component in their lives; any capacity to feel love or show their genuine affection towards someone else is not fair because of what society thinks about them.

Likewise, the context of homosexuality acts are equally important. Behaviors always have context and homosexuality activity is in the context of one, a redefinition of sexual morals and two, its accompany promiscuity. If being homophobic back in the 60’s was a “criminal act”, being homophobic would not have been a problem that it is now. Why is it that gay men cannot love one another and show affection just like the rest of us heterosexuals? What makes them any different from us? The way that we raised, that is
