MARRIAGE: Being gay isn’t a lifestyle choice

Regarding same-sex marriage, the first question that comes to my mind is why does anyone care who marries whom?

Some say it is against God’s will. If they believe that God created man, then they must also believe that God created woman, gays and lesbians.

No, it is not a lifestyle choice. Who would choose to live a lifestyle where one can be humiliated and perhaps even beaten or killed? It is like being born with blue or brown eyes, over which we have no choice.

Those who believe it is a sin and believe in God should mind their own business and let him take care of it.
