    Young gay and bisexual men, however, were found to be more susceptible to contracting HIV largely because their partners are more likely to be infected with HIV, according to data presented at AIDS 2016 by CDC researchers.
    The study is the first nationally representative look at HIV-related risk behaviors among gay, bisexual and heterosexual male students in ninth through 12th grades. Proportions were similar among all groups who answered questions about several behaviors, including whether they ever had sexual intercourse, are currently sexually active, had sexual intercourse with four or more partners, and used a condom the last time they had sex. The gay and bisexual male study population had a 57-fold increased risk for contracting HIV compared with heterosexual young men due to the prevalence of infection in their male sex partners.

      I'm all for Gays rights, However You should not force someone or any business to serve you (unless it's a government office or tax paid service). an example would be the Bakery in Colorado. I'm 100% sure there was another bakery who would have been more than happy to serve the gay couple. Stop forcing people to abandon their beliefs just because you want to make a point. Not everyone will agree and accept who you are. Support businesses who support you, and stop going to places who do not. If the business doesn't want your money that's on them, it's their wallet that will be affected at the end of the day.

        @Justin T The point is that if you don't force those businesses hands then you're going to end up with very few places minorities are able to go to, especially outside of major cities.

        Think about my argument like this. If a business has terrible service, Do you go back too it? Or do you find somewhere else that had great service? The bakery obviously didn't treat the gay couple great, so why have him bake your cake, when another bakery would love to have your business and actually put their heart into making the cake? That's what I don't understand. Like I said it my original comment. Support businesses that support you.

        I find it strange how you could say you're "for gay rights" but you think any business owner should be able to kick out any minority for any reason. You can "pick the customer" in the sense that your business can have rules as to what kind of customer is welcome, when it comes to their behavior, attire, etc. But we have protections in place that state people can't be denied service based on gender, race, sexuality, etc. Because you can't have an egalitarian society if your landlord can just kick you out because he doesn't like gay people.

        @Maksie0 you never answered the question. Why is it ok if the customer is able to choose the business, but the business isn't able to choose the customer? Would it still be racist if white customer chose a white owned bussiness, simply because the other store is black owned? The answer is yes, so it goes both ways.

        The argument has everything to do with discrimination, and people can be discriminated against based on any trait, though race is certainly a popular one.

            82nd  verse of Surah Hud, clearly states the kind of the disaster that befell the people of Lut. “When Our Decree issued, We turned (the cities) upside down, and rained down on them brimstones hard as baked clay, spread, layer on layer”
            The statement of “turning (the cities) upside down” implies that the region was totally destroyed by a violent earthquake. Accordingly, The Lake of Lut, where the destruction took place, bears “obvious” evidence of such a disaster. 
            We quote German archaeologist Werner Keller as follows; 

            Together with the base of this mighty fissure, which runs precisely through this area, the Vale of Siddim, including Sodom and Gomorrah, plunged one day into the abyss. Their destruction came about through a great earthquake which was probably accompanied by explosions, lightning, issue of natural gas and general conflagration. (1)
            As a matter of fact, the Lake of Lut, or the Dead Sea as it is otherwise known, is located right on the top of an active seismic region, that is, an earthquake zone: 

            The base of the dead sea is located with a tectonic rooted downfall. This valley is located in a tension stretching between the Taberiye Lake in the north, and mid of Arabah Valley in the south.(2)
            The event was expressed as “we rained down on them brimstones hard as baked clay, spread, layer on layer” in the last part of the verse. This is in all probability meant to be the volcanic explosion that took place on the banks of the Lake of Lut, and because of which the rocks and stones that erupted were in a “baked form”. (The same event is related in the 173rd verse of Surat ash-Shuara as “We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)!”)
            In relation to this subject, Werner Keller writes; 

            The subsidence released volcanic forces that had been lying dormant deep down along the whole length of the fracture. In the upper valley of the Jordan near Bashan there are still towering craters of extinct volcanoes; great stretches of lava and deep layers of basalt have been deposited on the limestone surface

              Sweetie, I'm happy that you can quote myths. Meanwhile, in the real world, there is no rational argument you can present to define same-sex attraction as being wrong, or immoral.

                    Whatever myth you believe, governs your life alone.


                    *"Remember, Adam and Eve... natural"*


                    I see you're attempting to employ an argument from nature logical fallacy. What is or is not deemed natural is not the arbiter of what is right or wrong, good or bad, optimal or detrimental. Cancer is natural. Does that classification make caner optimal and good? No, it does not. Open heart surgery, the device you're using to communicate, glasses, houses, clothes...all unnatural. Does that classification make those things bad, wrong and detrimental? No, it does not. In addition to this tactic being a logical fallacy, it's also false. What can be observed in nature, is natural. Same-sex attraction and gender fluidity can be observed all throughout nature. Some species can change sex at will, some are asexual, and then there are intersex humans (google it). So this notion that nature operates with only two distinct gender binary identities, one male, and one female, with each being attracted only to the opposite, is demonstrably false.


                    *"that's how it suppose to be."*


                    Since when did nature arise a sentient consciousness with intent, then develope a method to convey that intent to you? It didn't. So your benighted opinion regarding the intent of nature can be readily dismissed as a benighted opinion.

                              The thing is that people don't get that being a Christian is all about serving others, especially those you disagree with. And it's all about respecting others and their lifestyles, especially when you disagree with them

                                *"people like you prefer to blame something in very general terms"*

                                And people like you prefer to ignore the established historical atrocities born out of your belief, then act like the belief you follow is, in general terms, this perfectly innocent thing when it is not.

                                *"rather than for example blaming the priests of Medieval times or the few churches that actually hate the the LGBTQ2S"*

                                You are, at this moment, actually demonstrating how blind you are to the ill and evil that has been wrought by your belief. Attempting to pass it off as an old (Medieval) thing, or an issue of a "few" churches. Meanwhile, all throughout the history of western civilization, your belief system and the followers of your belief in the majority, have and still do systematically persecute LGBT people, demonize LGBT people, marginalize LGBT people, physically, emotionally, and mentally abuse LGBT people, and where a sufficient number of the majority will allow it, influence the mechanism of the state to deny LGBT people basic rights even so far as execution of imprisonment.

                                *"you prefer to blame the whole thing"*

                                You cannot separate the believer from the belief which dictates how the believer is to view this topic. And Christianity is blatantly homophobic and directly informs the homophobia of its followers. You seem to think the belief which is the fountainhead of the homophobia, cannot be held responsible for the homophobia of its practitioners. You are wrong.

                                *"I understand that you need to blame something for everything but rather than blaming all of Christianity use that good ol' think tank to understand that it's a misinterpretation of the bible."*

                                No, it is not. The bible is demonstrably anti-LGBT. There is no amount of apologetics you can employ to mitigate this fact.

                                *"Think logically about it, why would I book that says "turn the other cheek", "love your enemy", "always forgive your fellow man" honestly endorse killing people it makes no logical sense."*

                                Well, now you're employing a massive equivocation fallacy. Was I narrowing the list of evil down to just "endorse killing people"? No, I did not. This means you darn well know the bible is directly responsible for the persecution of LGBT people, and rather than deal with that, you try to limit the scope of the argument to killing. You don't have to kill someone to harm someone and persecute them. And the bible, and its dictates, are directly responsible for the long-standing persecution of LGBT people throughout Western Christian Civilization, as well as the areas colonized by Western Christian Civilization.

                                So this argument of yours is invalid from the get-go, but let's address this supposed paradox you imagine to exist. Have you not read the bible?

                                Do the Mosaic Laws not say "Thou shalt not kill"? It does. Yet the same Mosaic Laws, in Leviticus 20-13, says the following:

                                _"13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death; their blood is upon them."_


                                How can this be? Don't kill, then commanded to kill? Then one can bring up the mass genocidal slaughter commended by the immoral god character of this myth while the Israelites were rampaging up through the "land of milk and honey".

                                Oh, I know, now you're going to gnash your teeth and say, but that's the old testament levitical laws and that doesn't apply to Christianity. The point isn't about who it applies to, its to demonstrate that your immoral book is bi-polar, and does, in fact, say "don't kill", only to then say "kill". But let's continue on to the New Testament to demonstrate how absurd your "being a Christian is all about serving others, especially those you disagree with" and "about respecting others and their lifestyles".

                                ______

                                2 John 9
                                _" 9 Everyone who does not abide in the teaching of Christ, but goes beyond it, does not have God; whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 10 Do not receive into the house or welcome anyone who comes to you and does not bring this teaching; 11 for to welcome is to participate in the evil deeds of such a person."_

                                Now, clearly, this is classifying anyone who is not a Christian, to be evil and you are commanded to not welcome them into your home. Really respecting of others...

                                2 Corinthians 6:14
                                _"14 Do not be mismatched with unbelievers. For what partnership is there between righteousness and lawlessness? Or what fellowship is there between light and darkness?"_

                                Calling those who do not believe this immoral myth, darkness, and lawlessness.

                                ____

                                1 Corinthians 5:9-13
                                _"11 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother or sister who is sexually immoral or greedy, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or robber. Do not even eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging those outside? Is it not those who are inside that you are to judge? 13 God will judge those outside. “Drive out the wicked person from among you.”"_

                                The bible, in numerous places, calls LGBT people sexually immoral. So again, I do wonder where the homophobia comes from when Christians are directly commanded by this scripture to not associate with them, not eat with them, followed by "drive out the wicked person from among you". I do wonder...


                                ____

                                2 Thessalonians 3:6
                                _"6 Now we command you, beloved, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to keep away from believers who are living in idleness and not according to the tradition that they received from us."_

                                So much for respecting others and their "lifestyles". Oh, btw, just in case you're not aware, contrary to the Christian mantra that same-sex attraction is a lifestyle, it is not. Its a sexual orientation.

                                The point is, there are plenty of ill scriptures in your immoral bible which has fueled outright evil against LGBT people. And your act of denying it, dismissing it, trying to soften it, is both perverse, factually wrong, and demonstrates that your belief has actually broken your moral compass in such a way that you cannot see the very real harm it has caused.

                                *"You are a man of logic are you not"*

                                Yes. And there is no way a logical person can separate the long-standing evil perpetrated against LGBT people by Christians, from the actual Christian belief which informed, influenced, and fostered that hatred within them.

                                Ugh...I see you have been well indoctrinated. Hitler was not an Athiest. Hitler is directly quoted as saying he was doing the work of god, and the issued belt buckle of Nazi German forces was imprinted with “Gott mit Uns” which means "god with us". Sir Francis Galton Darwin, was a Freemason. What is a requirement of that organization? Belief in a supreme god. As for Stalin, he literally replaced the worship of religion, with the worship of the state. Nothing he did, was informed by Atheism since atheism is not a belief system with tenants, directives, stances..etc.


                                *"There's evil every where you look putting that on religion or otherwise is putting the blame in the wrong place and expecting too much from all of society"*


                                Wrong. Especially when the evil is a direct result of tenants established and driven by the belief system. As Louis Weinburg said, _"With or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil—that takes religion."_

In the states that he says gays actually cant get fired in are states that give them special rights

                                  If mind reading was possible, I promise you the overwhelming majority of gay people who got fired, were fired for being gay.

                                  In some countries, you cannot be fired without proof that you're a bad employee. We need that in the USA. "Freedom to fire at any time for any reason" is just tyranny disguised as freedom. As if people get jobs for fun and not because they are needed to survive.

It's 'i' before 'e' except when your foreign neighbor Keith received eight counterfeit beige sleighs from feisty caffeinated weightlifters. Weird, right? Just cause something has the suffix 'phobia' doesn't mean it's a phobia.

                                    gorogo banab first things first I never said homophobia was a medical disorder henny. It’s not my fault it isn’t called homoism or anything. Homophobia is prejudice against gay people not fear which is a fact that I am well aware of. Second things second I’m sorry you don’t like my left wing bias but this is my opinion that people should be treated with the same amount of respect no matter what their sexuality is. Sorry if giving someone common respect is so bad, if you don’t want to do that please make a time machine and go back to the 30s. Last things last I do like that gay people are getting their rights to answer your question.

                                  My first condom purchase... turns out I didn't give myself enough credit and the "regular/average/most common" size of condom was too small.... it felt so uncomfortable. Lucky for me my first time was without a condom and we were both virgins so after the "Morning After Pill", I only had to use what turned out to be condoms that were too small until the birth control had taken effect. Just a couple of weeks as she started taking the pill during her next menses as when it's started during, it take effect immediately but if it's started between, it takes at least 7 days (safely). Turned out she was a bit allergic to latex anyway.

                                        The strength of ones convictions is irrelevant. It's not anyone else's fault you're spineless and fear being perceived as "zealous" enough to turn you off doing the right thing.

                                        Bad people will be zealous

                                        Good people will be zealous

                                        Equivocating them solely because they are both passionate makes you an obstacle and likely beneficial to the bad side.

                                        It’s simple. LGBTQ people want an equal shot at life. We want to be able to love our spouses in public without getting shot. We want to live as ourselves without being murdered. We want to be freed from pretending without losing what little income we have. Cishets are allowed to kiss their spouses, be seen how they want to, be married how they want to. We’re so close to being held at an equal value, but we’re being denied all of our rights because “you have enough”. No, we don’t. It’s not enough until everyone is on equal ground.

But in fact the Bible was first written in Latin, ask any priest they'll tell you, and while it was translating into English the words got mixed up. Fuck with that you homophones! Luv u 😘 ❤️

                                                      John Adams in a speech to the military in 1798 warned his fellow countrymen stating, "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Adams is a signer of the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and our second President.

                                                      Benjamin Rush, Signer of the Declaration of Independence said. "[T]he only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be aid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments. Without religion, I believe that learning does real mischief to the morals and principles of mankind."

                                                      Noah Webster, author of the first American Speller and the first Dictionary said "[T]he Christian religion, in its purity, is the basis, or rather the source of all genuine freedom in government. . . . and I am persuaded that no civil government of a republican form can exist and be durable in which the principles of that religion have not a controlling influence."

                                                      Gouverneur Morris, Penman and Signer of the Constitution."[F]or avoiding the extremes of despotism or anarchy . . . the only ground of hope must be on the morals of the people. I believe that religion is the only solid base of morals and that morals are the only possible support of free governments. [T]herefore education should teach the precepts of religion and the duties of man towards God."

                                                      Fisher Ames author of the final wording for the First Amendment wrote, "[Why] should not the Bible regain the place it once held as a school book? Its morals are pure, its examples captivating and noble. The reverence for the Sacred Book that is thus early impressed lasts long; and probably if not impressed in infancy, never takes firm hold of the mind."

                                                      John Jay, Original Chief-Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court , "The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this world and in the next. Continue therefore to read it and to regulate your life by its precepts."

                                                      James Wilson, Signer of the Constitution; U. S. Supreme Court Justice, "Human law must rest its authority ultimately upon the authority of that law which is divine. . . . Far from being rivals or enemies, religion and law are twin sisters, friends, and mutual assistants. Indeed, these two sciences run into each other."

                                                      Noah Webster, author of the first American Speller and the first Dictionary stated, "The moral principles and precepts contained in the scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. . . All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible."

                                                      Robert Winthrop, Speaker of the U. S. House, "Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them or by a power without them; either by the Word of God or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet."

                                                      George Washington, General of the Revolutionary Army, president of the Constitutional Convention, First President of the United States of America, Father of our nation, "Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society."

                                                      Benjamin Franklin, Signer of the Declaration of Independence "[O]nly a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
                                                      "Whereas true religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness . . . it is hereby earnestly recommended to the several States to take the most effectual measures for the encouragement thereof." Continental Congress, 1778

An act which is considered adultery in the bible. So this is not religious conviction, this is prejudice.


                                                                  *"I don’t agree with it nor do you I can tell but it’s his choice."*

This is a matter of whether or not the law is going to protect citizens against prejudicial treatment. Do you think it's okay if a doctor refuses to serve a gay person on the grounds that it's his/her "choice"? Do you think it's okay if firefighters show up at a burning house, find it to be owned by a gay couple, then refuse to put out the fire on the ground that it's their "choice". This is not how civil society operates in which one class of people can be denied goods and services just because another group has deemed them less than others.

                                                                  Unfortunately, the masterpiece Cakeshop saga did not end with Colorado ruling that Phillips could not refuse to make wedding cakes for gay couples. Phillips refused to comply with the Colorado civil rights commission and instead, with the backing of the ADF, took the case to the CO court of appeals who ruled against him. The CO Supreme Court refused to take Phillips case so he took it to the Supreme Court, arguing that the Colorado civil rights commission was violating the constitution by religiously discriminating against him. Which he argued was evidenced by one of the commissioners who, when delivering their decision said “ Freedom of religion and religion has been used to justify all kinds of discrimination throughout history...to me it is one of the most despicable pieces of rhetoric that people can use to—to use their religion to hurt others.”

                                                                  Largely because of that statement, The court ruled (on narrow grounds) in a 7-2 decision that the commission had not employed religious neutrality and had thus violated Phillips freedom of religion. On that basis they overturned the commissions ruling.
                                                                  However, the courts ruling was very narrowly tailored. The majority opinion (written by Kennedy) cited that fact that the commission was hostile to religion (as based largely on the quote but also a few past occurrences) as the controlling factor of the decision and even noted that had the commission remained religiously neutral, he (Kennedy) may likely have ruled the other way.

                                                                  While Kennedy’s Narrow language makes it difficult for this case to be used as precedent for ruling against laws akin to the Colorado anti discrimination law in the future (in fact they immediately passed a new one under a new commission), bc of the specifics of the case it also did not provide a precedent of ruling in favor of them. Meaning to this date, the Supreme Court deemed the following kinds of discrimination of the LGBT community to be unconstitutional: state laws banning “gay content” on television, antisodomy laws, state laws banning their cities from passing anti-lgbt discrimination laws, and laws prohibiting homosexual marriage.

                                                                  In short, they have only ruled against state legislation that explicitly, and explicitly intend to treat members of the LGBT community differently on the basis of their membership in the community.

                                                                  They have NOT prohibited discrimination against the LGBT community as furthered by non state actors or even state-affiliated actors. Such protections have only been given by individual states.nor have they made any ruling in regards to the line between religious freedom and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

                                                                  In terms of scrutiny applied when addressing the constitutionality of a law, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation can still be reviewed under rational basis (very weak scrutiny- the legislation will very likely be allowed) unless they are explicitly denying an enumerated constitutional right or an implied constitutional right (obergefield deemed marriage to count as that) to the LGBT community.For contexts, discrimination on the basis of Race or relation are treated with strict scrutiny (that law is very very likely to be struck down) and discrimination on the basis of sex is treated with intermediate scrutiny (state needs to have a good reason and have proof of it but there’s some leniency on what qualifies as a good reason).
