I really don't think it's apples and oranges.
Humans are humans and rights are rights.
Some humans are born differently than others. Just as some are born white, some are born black, and some are born gay.
I believe humans have the right to do what they want so long as it doesn't interfere (aka enter-fear) with the lives of others. I can understand how
heterosexual people find homosexual activity 'disgusting.' Just as I understand how an ultra-rich/sheltered individual might find the ways that native
aboriginals live to be 'disgusting.' But does that mean we get to tell them what they can and can't do?
Who can say?
You can say "homosexuality isn't natural because they can't reproduce children."
But what about hermaphrodites?
What about people who are born sterile?
What about homosexuality found in other animals? (en.wikipedia.org...
Why would we expect it to not happen in humans? (Which also happen to be 'animals.')
Truth be told, I've never seen any other species of animals get so angry about what another one of their species is doing, so long as it doesn't
INTERFERE with their own happiness.
And as far as putting gays on their own country....I'm sure you're being hyperbolic. But, seriously? How is that equivalent to...anything?
Do all whites live on one island?
Do all blacks live on another?

We are humans. We are brother and sisters, neighbors and friends. We are a community. Considering we can't get past these very very basic agreements
on how to get along without fighting/killing/judging one another in every aspects of our lives, is it really a surprise we're on the brink of
exterminating our own species, all because "I was right." ???
