mmh I think you are making a slight mistake there Highlander, Church doesn't quite equal Christianity. You can have a Christian state but the Church itself doesn't have anything to do with that. If you see it like that the "not choosing one church over another" makes more sense I think.

I'm pretty torn to the Gay Marriage subject.

I've got a lot of friends who are Gay in my industry. They are wonderful people. I don't have a problem with their life choices if what they do doesn't hurt me. It's private and their choice.

The other side of the coin is the continuation of homosexuality, drug users and multiple sex partners jeapordizes others as HIV transmittal becomes higher the more it's passed to others. HIV mutates every 90 days. This is one of the reason's that NIH (National Institute of Health) Bethesda, Md has a problem coming up with a cure. When we have a sudden operation we all run a risk no matter how well the blood is typed, checked and screened for a chance of transmittal.

This is the reason I have such mixed emotions concerning this subject. I don't believe morality discussion is important for the here and now. Neither am I worthy to be the judge and jury.

I would agree with you too, Scottish 2! These are issues that pertain to everyone, regarding race, sexual preference, etc.

I agree... it's not only homosexuals that catch HIV. In Düsseldorf there was a huge scandal about infected blood conserves and that the donors have not been checked.
The HI Virus can be slowed down considerably. It is a long process and it envolves alot of very expensive medicaments.
But HIV doesn't really have anything to do with the fact of if homosexual people can marry or not.

Second I think that a moral discussion is very important because it makes people not only see their own small view to the whole issue. We are not a fully "qualified" ethical comission but we have the right to discuss those issues and we should do because it adds to the greater understanding.

As we were discussing the "Gay Issue" I did not include to the discussion of heterosexual relationships as that was not the subject matter. Sorry, should have realized that would surface.

It's sad when anyone gets Hepititis C or becomes infected with HIV. I've nursed those with both diseases and the wasting away of a human life is depressingly sad.
Aids is not HIV. They are two seperate things.
Inferon is used to control Hepititis C and helps when caught in the beginning of the disease. What troubles me the most is the rapant spread of a disease you may innocently contract NO Matter what your sexual preferance is.

I fully support the legal institution of marriage for any consenting legal-age adults.

When you say "legal" you're talking about a binding business contract, one in which property, financial, and health rights are conjoined. You are NOT destroying 2000 years of a faith.

So many people, especially here in the southern USA, are so very afraid of gays. To them: gay = drugs = promiscuity = disease = pedophilia. I have never understood the supposed connection.

That "Good Ole Boy" stuff works everywhere, it's alive and well in the northern states just as well. People are the same no matter where you live. Good and Bad are everywhere. Lliberal and conservative. Just people trying to get thru life.
People are naturally afraid of AIDS-HIV and they react accordingly with good reasons.

As they should be. Fear of HIV is one thing, blaming it on the gay population is quite another.

The Gay community is not totally responsible for this rampant problem. I would never blame any one problem totally on one person. Life is Grey, not Black and white.

Legal unions between individuals should have the same binding effect as Marriage and if someone wants to engage in a Union then they should be allowed to do so.

Marriage is looked upon as a sacramental joining in a religious union and most religious denominations except for a few who have completely spun off into space define marriage as the union between male and female.

The gay community would be better off putting their efforts into making civil unions on the same level as a religious Marriage in the eyes of the legal community instead of trying to force the acceptance of gay marriage.

This is not a gay or stright issue it is a legal issue.
