I guess so, but I don't see the literal point of giving Year Sevens GCSE-standard work? People in college study GCSEs too, Year Sevens wouldn't have the knowledge to complete the questions. .__.

Dear lord. I wonder what the Science lessons are like...

...I log onto this forum for the first time in months and this is the first thread that catches my eye
LOL well I have something to say

Quote:
little kids would be swearing at the homosexual dads calling them abrupt words and i do not think it would be fair on the kid they adopt that they have to go through that.
That doesn't sound plausible. Not even here in the US. I have experienced bullying almost exactly as you describe, myself, so I'm familiar with it, but it's only a few kids who participate, and it's almost always outside of school. I highly doubt an adopted child would have such severe problems with people swearing at their parents in public, especially in the UK, where I've heard people are slightly more tolerant...

Besides, studies have shown that, children raised by homosexual parents are not any worse off than other children. In fact, if anything, they may be better adapted than their heterosexual-raised counterparts. Like this. Or this.

Quote:
Well to be honest i do not have anything against homosexuals, i just feel sorry for the adopted kids because they have to go through bullying in school and such.

There is this gay kid in our school but i am not really sure if he is gay just dresses up like a girl bbut everyone swears at him, i am not going to lie i wanted to swear a couple times but my maturaty is passed that.
You should feel ashamed for how you treat them... They dress like a girl? Do they actually wear female clothing? If so, this actually sounds like transgender bullying, and is therefore irrelevant here anyway. I suppose you feel sorry for those adopted kids who are bullied, but not for them, right? Since you apparently just watch and laugh as people harass them and try to resist that urge to join in. And does nobody stand up for them? Someone in this situation is sick, but it's not them.

I wanted to slip into ze/zim/zis here but that was kind of confusing.

Geez.

Bringing back the topic of homosexuals.
(I could go back and quote everything, but im lazy as hell.)


Why should it be illegal for two homo sapiens to get married? Love is love. In the US, The first amendment states that every citizen has the following rights;


1. Freedom of Religion.
2. Freedom of Assembly.
3. Freedom of Press.
4. Freedom of Petition.
5. Freedom of Speech.



Since we do have Freedom of Religion, why must our marriage laws be based on Christianity, or religions that do not approve of gay rights?
There are plenty of religions that believe everyone should have the same rights. (i.e. Buddhism; Atheism; Agnostic etc.) Liking the same gender doesn't make you any less of a human being.

Homosexuality has the suffix "ality". Just like Reality, actuality, and personality. Which (im guessing) means a way of living or something in that general era.
Homophobia has the suffix "phobia" Which mean great fear. Homophobes are afraid of people who love the same gender, just Arachnophobia people are afraid of spiders.
Just because you're afraid of something, doesn't mean it's morally wrong. Homosexuals just love people. They're doing nothing wrong.

And on the topic of the adopting kids or whatever. Religion is something you grow up with. I personally am an Atheist. There is no proof of "God" or a God, so how can I believe that?
Anyways, no one forced a religion on me, and i'm perfectly fine with gay rights. EVERYONE should have the same rights. Yes, Homosexuals and their kids are going to have it harder in life, because there are sick people who think it's funny to make their lives a living hell. But homosexual parents wont raise a child to be a rude homophobic kid. Religion is a choice. We are all born with an open mind, and we believe what we want.
People are born gay, or born straight. It is not a choice. Just like we are all born with a heart. It's natural. Just because Homosexuals are the minority, doesn't mean they shouldn't have basic rights.

Personally, I am gay. So yeah, this is an important subject to me, and I want to voice my opinion. Because I am a citizen of the United States, and I have Freedom of Speech.

The states that do not allow same-sex marriage, while most are probably against it for religious reasons, have found other reasons to back up their stance. There are loopholes with everything.

Freedom of religion works both ways.

Write down what you think and why.

I got this question in my practise GCSE question and i answered,
I believe that H-S should not be allowed to get married because my faith says that women were made for men and men were made for women.
But other people might argue that they should be able to battle because it is a human rights to get married and have children and it does not say anything against homosexuals.

Most weddings take place in religious places and if a man and man were to get married they would have to ask the leader of the religious place if it is okay for them to marry in their place of worship,
i would say no again because of my faith and the fact that if they were to adopt a child little kids would be swearing at the homosexual dads calling them abrupt words and i do not think it would be fair on the kid they adopt that they have to go through that.
But some people might disagree with me and say it is there choice.
Ahem. Ahehehem. Aherehemphahemarahemraphem. Sorry. Just clearing my throat.

First of all, now days, many marriages are done in courthouses.

Way back when (hate to burst your bubble), marriages were viewed upon as transactions as property. For instance, the Jews would throw their sandals over their shoulder (showing a business deal has been accepted), the same was done with wives. Even when America was being settled, or when Christianity dominated over half the world, women were looked upon and valued as property. Marriage, in the religious sense, is nothing but a business transaction.

Second of all, you will probably say, "Nuh uh. My priest/pastor/father/mother/what-the-flip-ever, told me that marriage in the faith is to show love." Yeah, okay. You believe that, but then look at history and it will tell you the truth behind that pathetic excuse.

Now religious bashing aside, what makes you think it is natural for women to desire the opposite sex, and vis versa? Religious testament? As I said, that is debunked and not legitimate. History has proven that ever since there were humans, there were gay people. Do not tell me it was a choice back then, because the only choice now days is on whether or not to cover it up or not. American society as a whole frowns upon gays, which is stupid. What have they ever done to you? What will they ever do to you? They are not bothering you. It is the same about that kid who lives down the street. You know. That one who is Jewish. Why was his heritage picked on in AMERICA even for centuries? What did he ever do to you? Absolutely nothing.

Gays should be allowed to marry, and by golly, it should be a ceremony just as spectacular as ones put for straight people. Why deny their privilege to love each other by official standards? Marriage was not a concept designed by your religions.

]Linking with what PE2K Voices said, did you know that Spartan warriors, the most vicious, highly trained, bloodthirsty, manly men EVER used to sleep with their fellow soldiers? Men and women having same-gender sex and relationships was commonplace in the Ancient World, which is why I believe that all you anti-gay lot's reasons are all down to society and religion. Funny it was acceptable when your God wasn't heard, isn't it?

I actually read this thread as "Should heterosexuals be allowed to marry?" XD

Well I'm gonna be the first one to tell you that I have hated adultery my entire life; have loathed it, because it's freaking sick and makes me want to punch people in the face with a spatula. And dude, one of the ten commandments says that you shouldn't commit adultery. XD It doesn't have anything about homosexuality in it, though.

And.

I, by no means, condemn homosexuality. At all.

That's called "lying". In the end, no matter what they try and cover it up with, it's for religious reasons.
