I'm in California where all this Prop 8 stuff is going on. It's got me pretty upset.
Personally, my perspective on being gay is that it's similar to being left-handed, some people are just born that way (and god hates lefties too apparently). It's not like I'm gay, I would know by now if I was born that way, but I don't see any reason to hate people who are or people who want to start families with a same-sex partner, different people have different kinds of families. Science has documented homosexuality in animals. So far the only reason I've heard why people hate gay people is because they think they have to or they'll go to hell. I don't subscribe to a religious belief system, so I don't have any reason to hate gays.
Just wondering if this is the majority opinion among Atheists or if it's just me?
