Gordon Brown told Ghana's late President Mills to accept gays in Ghana or else the UK will cut the aid it gives Ghana, but the late president constantly refused because we don't condone such acts here. It became a very big topic of discussion which made the major religious groups to speak against it. I just wonder what will make people of the same sex have feelings for each other much more get married. I'm really confused.

I have heard about the treatment of people attracted to the same-sex in Africa. I find it incredibly and abhorrent, especially when it comes from Christians. This completely runs counter to the teachings of Jesus in the Bible.

Can you explain to me what will make people of the opposite sex have feelings for each other so much that they want to get married? What is your point of reference? Also please, as you have implied that it is a conscious choice people make regarding the gender they are attracted to, please describe to me how and why you made this choice? How old were you when you made this choice?

"Accepting gays" means accepting they exist, and they do exist. Nobody is placing a gay person in your bed or nobody is putting you in a gay person's bed. And of course they have feelings for each other, that's why they want to get married. Calusarul (talk)

Most people attracted to the same sex can do the same for people who are exclusively attracted to the opposite sex. Opposite-sex attracted people who think that think REALLY REALLY highly of themselves. My recollection was that vanity/pride like that was considered a sin by many Christians and Muslims. They should perhaps stop thinking that same-sex attracted people want to have sex with them because the opposite-sex attracted person is just SO ATTRACTIVE, good looking, intelligent, funny, well off that same-sex people would want to jump their bones, screw them senseless and then marry them. It doesn't work like that. (Though to be fair, a number of societies appear to perpetuate this myth that men have zero self control over their sex drives and cannot be held responsible for their sexually inappropriate actions towards women. It looks like those guys, who do or desire to do such inappropriate things towards women, suddenly have fears that their inappropriate actions could be done unto them. Perhaps, the real lesson here is heterosexual male idiots should be taught their behavior is wrong and completely unacceptable. Then, when seeing less sexually inappropriate behavior towards women, they will see the norm that this type of behavior is NOT acceptable point blank and stop assuming what they do will be done unto them.)
