Homosexuality has always been around, the only reason why it seems to be on the increase is that people are no longer scared of being identified as gay in most parts of the world today. Homosexuals are therefore now free to come out in the open and exercise their freedom of association.

I like that you asked that question. I'll give you the exact answer, and you can decide whether or not you believe it.

They have been very vocal and been very aggressive to be acknowledge as the 3rd sex.

If gays and lesbians started their own church, then they could get married.And nobody could stop them, because they would be protected by the first amendment, the freedom of religions act.And of course they would also be able to save a lot of money, because most religion do not pay taxes.

Why is homosexuality such a hotbed issue?As a Christian I don't believe I have the right to make judgements. I also think it's interesting how we are supposed to be living with love in our hearts as Christ did but so many drag out the old testament when it's serves their purpose. Ham, Noah son...
