Mixed emotions over marriage for homosexuals

Published: Thursday, July 24, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST • Updated: Monday, Aug. 18, 2014 7:28 a.m. CST

Some argue that saying God forbids homosexual intercourse constitutes bigotry because as long as two people love one another, they should be free to marry.

A parent and child may love one another, also two siblings. Should the state recognize incest as marriage?

The movement to gain homosexual relations respectability was followed by the massive spread of a venereal disease that killed huge numbers. Are those who opposed such activities the cruel enemies of homosexuals, while those who promoted such their friends and benefactors?

Of course, the sick should be tenderly cared for, regardless of the cause. In fact, religious groups that condemn the cause nevertheless support the care.
