Greeks, Romans, Chinese Emperors, and what about Alexander, the Great... The fact that so many non-Christian clutures permitted the homosexuality is not deniable, I think.
And, speaking of Christianity, there are document (actual authenticated dcument, I think, tho I can't recall where i read the article at the moment) that's showing that in the earlier stage of Christianity, some churches performed marriage "same sex union" ceremonies for homosexual couples.
Homosexuality is not a sin and it's not a lifestyle choice. There are many homosexuals who wish more than anything that they were straight because how most of society views gays. I had a gay friend I met when I moved to SF who used to be a popular jock in high school, he'd date cheerleaders the whole nine yards. He said he cried like a "little b*tch" when he figured it out.
People who are actually gay are born that way. Then there's the people who are gay/bi because it's so hip and alternative and that's they only thing they could think to do to be "different".
I completely agree with this. The idea that people actually WANT to be part of a group that's deprived of basic rights, condemned by religious figures, and often targeted with violence is simply laughable.

Yay...It was slightly getting off-topic here, hehe...
Being bi, I have no problems with homosexuals, however, when I see a guy/girl who thinks girl on girl/guy on guy is "hot" but is totally against the idea of gays/lesbians, I have the habit to think there's something wrong and I flame.
Plus, some above shouldn't be so uptight about it. Like asu said, life is too short and I also believe it is open for experimentations...Well, of course, there's always consequences.
Now about being, or not, born gay, I have no idea. What about the guy/girl who's always been always attracted to the opposite sex but who suddenly finds him/herself attracted by the same sex? Or what about bisexuals? Yeah, it's kinda confusing.
'Buffy and Angel had gone out before and Buffy wasn't really comfortable talking to Spike and Angel at the same time, because now Spike and Buffy had been going out for 6 months and Buffy was afraid that Angel might tell Spike that him and Buffy went out, but it turns out that Angel had told Spike that they went out, Spike was heartbroken that Buffy never told him that they went out, so Spike broke up with Buffy to get back at her for not telling him that Angel and Buffy went out.'

I'll never understand the mindset of people who like to see same sex couples in entertainment but are against gays. Confused much?
As for bisexuals. I think it's normal to be attracted to the same sex be it admiring from afar (even on a small scale) or actually dating people of the same sex. While my bicycle never completely fell out of the closet I'm not apposed to the idea that I might date a woman somewhere down the line.
I've noticed alot of people in the gay community are against bisexuals saying that their just confused, faking it, etc but I think bisexuallity is possible.
