This is two part: question about homosexuality as a choice and the bad effects of gay marriage. Today, I was watching a documentary about the disadvantage of being gay in the world (especially in countries where the intolerance and persecution is very high). They face discrimination from just about any group belonging to different race, sex, economic status, religion, etc. They get shunned even by their own family members, "tolerated" by friends, or treated as evil or sinful by strangers, or denied "rights". With all these, how can people still say that it's a choice to be homosexual? Why would someone choose to live a life like this? Some would say that even if homosexuality is not a choice, once can still choose to not engage in lifestyle associated with homosexuality. But is it that easy? What if one day you're told you should hide being a heterosexual - and that you must go out and date, have sex and marry only people of the same sex? Do you really think it's something easy to do? That's the first part of my question. The second part is about a video they showed. It looks like an ad. I wonder if this was something that goes on the internet or do you (in the US) have this type of ads on your TV. And what do you think of it? YouTube - NOM - Gathering Storm One line that stood out for me was "My freedom, will be taken away." How does gay marriage do that?
