Homosexuality a sin and crime

I am appalled, infuriated, and disgusted over the furor about gay marriages. Homosexuality and lesbianism are sins and crimes against nature. Why do we suppose God made opposite sexes? The Holy Bible condemns this perversion, as does common decency. I’m told gays “can’t help the way they are.” Maybe not, but they don’t have to defiantly flaunt it for its shock value. Do they not have any sense of self-worth?

I hear the loud cry, “Freedom of choice!” So they proceed to break God’s law, nature’s law and man’s law. If this is to be the norm, then we may as well free every prisoner from every penitentiary in the country. After all, they were just exercising their freedom of choice.

Civilizations throughout history have collapsed because of perversion and degeneration, and, sadly, we are following the same pattern. Are we next? I dearly love my country, but I must say I fear the direction we are taking.
