    Who seems to be more against homosexuality?

    I've seen and participated in the recent questions regarding homosexuality and figured I would continue the trend.

    The majority of people against homosexuality seem to be religious. Unsurprising, yet there are some who call homosexuality a perversion of nature and that it will affect society badly without giving any logical reason as to why that is.

    Who seems to be more against it? Religious people or people who seem to lack basic knowledge of societal influences (AKA, people who like to talk out of their bunghole)

    It's not the religious ones.

    Most people can balance a dislike of something because their faith has instilled in them that it is bad, with the fact that those who are homosexual are human, and not necessarily of the same belief, or faith as them, and balance that with the fact that its not their place to judge a person.

    Those who don't have a great deal of knowledge of societal influences etc etc often dislike it because someone has told them its bad.  And therefore it is their duty to tell everyone who is homosexual that they are bad.  The lack of societal knowledge makes it difficult for them to realise that a little tact may make their words be heard (regardless of whether that would change the receiving person's thoughts etc), and they just barrel on in.

    It's this lack of being able to separate the "person" from the "sin/bad thing I don't like/ewwww" factor. I think that most religious people can do this. That most people can do this, religious or not. It's only the select few who manage to combine religion with a lack of knowledge etc...who come across badly for the religious.

    Who is more against it? Hmmm, get the two groups you've described above together...and there you have it! (note: the two separate are fine, you get them together....oh boy) Here on HP - you don't actually have it all that often...and not currently (at least not to me).

    It is actually a codified law in all monotheistic religions that homosexuality is to be regarded as an immoral perversion against nature that should not be tolerated. Since nearly 60% of the world follows one of the three major monotheistic religions (and a larger portion of the western world in particular follows them), then it is clear that religion is the main cause for worrying about with whom others choose to have their physical relations. Personally, I think others who are rabidly against it for some other reason are more often "closet cases" who don't know any other way to deal with their thoughts.

    I'm not 100% sure about this, but I've heard that the Koran (Quran) speaks against homosexuality - except in the case of male/female segregation. I think their 'holy' book makes allowances for homosexuality when unmarried males are grouped together (war, school, jihadist camps, etc..)
    Or it could just make allowances for homosexuality in order to 'preserve' a female's virginity.
    I could be totally wrong about this, but it seems I read it somewhere.
    I've always wondered why male/male relations were more 'taboo' than female/female relations, which seem to be encouraged. But the Christian bible does specify that a man should not lay with another man. I'm not sure if it specifically says that women should not 'lay' with other women.
    Personally, I don't get sexual attraction that is so strong that one cannot just say no. An orgasm is an orgasm whether it happens with another person or with self help.
    In other words, if something is against your moral standard, why can you not control it, be it sex or stealing or speaking in tongues?
    Perhaps we have not evolved enough to control our base urges. It may just be a question of time before we begin to accept humans in all their manifestations. Perhaps some day we will learn to control or accept our own nature.

      Since most every major religion essentially paints women as sexual objects for men, I can only imagine why female/female homosexuality is legit.

      Ain't that the truth! It's just a sad turn of events that men seem to be the dominant sex. Maybe it comes from having external genitalia?
