Homosexuality is defined as the sexual relationships between members of the same biological sex. Typically, it stands for social relationships between men, while lesbianism stands for relationships between women (Collins Dictionary Of Sociology, 2006). Recognizing one’s sexual orientation is an integral process that can happen throughout the whole life (Floyd and Bakeman, 2013). Origin of homosexuality is always debated. Kahn (1995) thinks that homosexuality is affected by upbringing of one, while Rosario (2002) thinks that one’s sexuality is genetically determined.
There have been many people who have tried through various studies to prove the ‘cause’ of homosexuality. They have explored biological means through genetics to try and identify if there are any chromosomal differences between heterosexuals and those self declared, as homosexual. Hormonal balances or imbalances within the womb have also been explored in relation to high stress levels within pregnancy. Homosexuality and Genetics. In an article published on news.science.org, Kelly Servick a staff writer for Science (magazine) explains a sudy carried out by Psychologist J. Michael Bailey.
Heterosexuals deal with lust as much as homosexuals. To have a thought is not of itself sinful. How that thought is entertained will determine whether that thought becomes sinful. Will I give in to my lusts or will I bring them captive to Christ? A person can identify therefore as homosexual but not give in to their lusts and live a godly life, just as a single man
A person’s sexuality should not determine whether or not the person can adopt a child who needs a home. Although the issue on lesbian and gay adoption is still very controversial, it has become more socially accepted. If the issue is accepted by the majority of the people why shouldn’t it be legal everywhere? From 1992-2014
Denying homosexual couples the right to adopt may be helpful to the children, however, by letting same-gender couples adopt, they receive a more stable, permanent home. Children in the adoption system or the foster care system are without parents to look up to and learn from, and that can essentially be more harmful to the child. Perhaps what children need is the love that homosexual couples have the potential to provide. They need a family. This is debated in the article titled “Adoption Bills Put Religion Ahead of Kids" when it states "I'm not approaching this from an equal protection or parental advocacy perspective.
Homosexual boys and men are either forced into conversion therapy or make a voluntary choice to attend because they were raised to believe their sexuality is unnatural. While some may argue that it could help the homosexual individual become closer to God, therapists should not allow gay conversion therapy because it takes away their fundamental human rights, discriminates against homosexuals, therefore, forcing them to conform to society's standards, and is damaging to the mental health of clients subjected to the treatments.

Using the logical thinking that homosexuality is okay because it is natural, we can conclude that both people with sexual preferences of pedophilia and incest should have their rights to marriage as well. It can be clearly seen how it will bring trouble to a nation in the future. It is a “slippery slope”, there is no boundary to what is right and wrong anymore, all thanks to one group supposedly claiming their right. And even if textbook nowadays does not include homosexuality as sexual deviation, some homosexuals do become gay because of conflict during childhood; and can be reverted back if the conflict reach resolution. Legalization of gay marriage will only bring
They are not accepted to get controlled with their spouses in hospitals because they are gay. Many doctors deny controlling them personally because of their sexual orientations. It is even admitted that some doctors think that homosexuals carry diseases such as HIV, AIDS, and Hepatitis because they think that they tend to have sexual relationships which are totally wrong and unsafe. It is totally against human rights and government must immediately stop these discriminations. If gay marriage was legal, they would not face such problems and discriminations, they would get better attitudes from people.
Trends are popular nowadays. If someone has a hoverboard, others want a hoverboard, because fifteen other kids have hoverboards. The same will happen to many others causing homosexuality to increase in population. If a friend of yours thinks being gay is right and he becomes a homosexual, you would think it is right because he’s your friend that you have known for over 20 years. Is this what we really want our society to be like?
