Being gay is about as criminal as being born with blonde hair. We need to stop with these silly notions based in nonsense and start accepting people for who or what they are.

I feel that children should not be taught that how they were born (ie: gay) is a "sin" or a "criminal" act

What an unjust education system. AL needs to deal in reality - being GLBT is not criminal. AL education must be based on reality, not idealism, for consciously aware young adults.

because the idea of teachers being allowed to emotional scare innocent students is sickening

No one, gay or straight, should be made to feel like a criminal for their personal choices, which hurt nobody

WOAH. Isnt this a little to major on this scale here.. I mean i know people dont support it and all, but a CRIMINAL OFFENSE. WOW Alabama, I will never be spending any money visiting you online or even traveling through your state. Nobody is criminal based on who they love and the fact that you have the nerve to tell anybody that it is is unbelievable. "Its a criminal offense for a man to marry a woman" Yeah none of you would like that one right? I didnt think so. Just let these people be who they want to be. Being gay does not harm anybody around them, it does not force others to react in extreme manors, And it sure as hell does not need millions of petitions for marriage to be legal. I will be leaving the US when i am of age. It is rediculous that anybody has the mindframe to even question the rights of other human beings. "Honey, You cant go to the spa anymore... Why?... They made it illegal for women to go to spas today..." Lets see how people would deal with that form of discrimination, Or better yet, "Babe, You cant drink beer anymore... Why?... They made it illegal for men to have alcoholic beverages" Now look at yourself, Would you like that happening to you? I dont think so. Many of you will just scroll past this, But my point stands. If you do not want it done to you, do not do it to other people. If you wont give gays the right to marry, then take it away from straight couples too. Nobody will die when gay marriage is legalized, and for the president, legalizing gay marriage in the states would spread alot of money the gays saved up for a wedding.. Think about that, At least 40% of the US population is LGBT. Demographics cannot prove anything because at least 30% of that 40% are too scared to admit it to anyone, and when they get made fun of for it, they resort to suicide so they dont have to deal with the constant bullying for it. I thought in the US people were trying to stop bullying.. I guess not. And i thought i should share this also.. This is all coming from a 14 year old living in a bad community where not many people support lgbt. It is also not legal for LGBT to get married in ohio either. Thankyou for your time and hopefully this gets voted up so everybody gets a chance to read this..
