Why do people get so worked up over it? I'm not asking about right vs. wrong, I am questioning why it has become such a hotly debated issue. I am curious as something along the lines of abortion can be argued as an overall social issue that impacts everyone due to the killing of a child or the repression of a right that women have. No, this isn't about abortion, but I am using it to illustrate how you can argue it has dramatic impact on all of our lives. How does homosexuality impact us to take the same extreme measures of issues such as abortion, while the two are completely different? How does someone who is homosexual harm the life of someone who is heterosexual?
