And how do you define what humans are *supposed* to act like?

Their not supposed to act g.a.y or lesbian. You said in another comment that why does God create g.a.ys if the society hates em so much? Well thats the thing He doesnt. He creates normal human beings who go astray or choose how they wanna live their life, God has given every person a free will to do whatever he/she wants but if they do something wrong its still wrong. If we are animals do you viciously try to kill another man who also likes your girlfriend? And to how humans are suposed to act i mean for g.a.ys they take it up the butt which frankly i see as sick with girls let alone guys. And lesbians may seem hot but its still wrong.

You're nothing but a child. First things first, you misquoted me. I never asked why God would create ***s in a society that would hate them. It's a valid question, but not one I asked. Secondly, if you are to give someone the gift to do as they please, you cannot then impose a moral code on them. To punish someone for using a gift you give them is a touch sadistic. Thirdly, you can't give any objective reason for why homosexuality is wrong. "I see it as sick." Yeah? What's got you thinking about guys having sex with each other so much that you have to openly express your disgust with it? What other people do in their bedrooms, so long as they both consent to all activities committed, is NONE. OF. YOUR. FU.CKING. BUSINESS. Unless an activity does no material or psychological harm to those who aren't actively partaking in that activity, I see no reason to interfere. I may disagree with someone's particular formula for happiness, but I don't have the right to impose my tastes on others. You don't either. You also betray yourself, you f**king hypocrite. "lesbians may seem hot" Don't you dare lie to me and tell me you haven't jerked off to two girls gettin' it on. You may think those chicks are going to hell, but you're going to be keeping them company, by your own standards. This is what I can't stand about religiously bigoted people. To live the life of intolerance that you do, you have to commit so many immoral acts of dishonesty and hypocrisy, double standards and other bulls**t. And you only get away with it because you've somehow convinced others that your fantasy God gives you the authority to.

yeah guilty as charged i have watched lesbian porn. but thats not the point. and people are not perfect, thats why there is such a thing as forgiveness. God forgives acts if your truly deeply honest. i can write to you forever but i'll never be able to convince you because 1) im only 16 i have my whole life to learn about alot 2) your an athiest, whatever i say you'll bring science into it and yes science is right. but have you ever thought your interpretation of that is wrong? "Unless an activity does no material or psychological harm to those who aren't actively partaking in that activity, I see no reason to interfere. I may disagree with someone's particular formula for happiness, but I don't have the right to impose my tastes on others. You don't either." i totally agree but thats like saying why should a police help if someone is robbing another peron's store? he doesnt have any right to interfere, does he? this is what im getting from your post. I dont think that being attracted to men(for men) is written in their genes before birth, its something they develop later on in life. in the end ***s and lesbians shouldnt be encouraged

Police should get involved when someone is robbing a store, because robbery DOES harm people. Homosexuality DOES NOT harm people. Nobody is encouraging homosexuality. People are just becoming more accepting of it as society progresses. As a g.a.y 17 year old, I can safely say that I DID NOT choose to be g.a.y, just like you presumably didn't choose to be straight. It's impossible, as proven by science. Sexuality is determined in the womb and by environmental factors. Considering the sh.it we get from ignorant, Bible-thumping morons like you, I doubt anyone would wan't to be ***. Just look at all the g.a.y teens killing themselves because of uneducated bigots like you. See the misery people like you cause.

Homosexuality, between men, in many cases ends up in anal sex (dont you dare disagree) and anal sex has a high risk of STDs then any other form of sexual intercourse. So doesnt STD harm a person? And just so you know im not pin-pointing anal sex to *** guys only but between girls and guys aswell. And sniggly might say its none of my buissness again but im pointing out the possible harm of homosexuality which you said doesnt exist

Who are you fooling, dude? "Normal" intercourse between men and women has the same percentage of risk to transmit STDs, as well. Your argument is invalid. Are you dumb or something?

Not if you wear a condom. Besides, straight couples practise anal sex too you know. Don't you dare insinuate that all *** people have STDs. Yes, STDs are more easily transmitted through anal sex, but if your partner has an STD and you don't use a condom, your going to get infected whether you have vaginal sex or anal sex. Plus, the straight community has a far higher rate of STD infection than the *** community. Is that a reason to say heterosexuality is dangerous? NO. Use a condom, and you won't get or transmit STDs. Simple.

So because YOU don't practise anal sex, no other heterosexual couple does? Idiot.

plus God doesnt give us the authority to do anyhting wrong just because we follow a religion. if its wrong its wrong. end of story. if i do something wrong i dont go telling people that its right in my religion. and just out of curiosity, though i highly doubt that you'll tell me, what religion did you follow at first?

What you are doing is wrong, you are only making people feel unwanted in society and you may not realize this but because of your comments you may have made a g.a.y teenager kill himself because he just couldn't take it anymore from homophobic people like you

Im not saying that ***s are mutants or hideous creatures that should be wiped off the face of the earth. Im not in favour of ***s but why do other people try to impose on me that ***s are ok? They are humans who should be corrected.

Homophobia, just like homosexuality being natural, is a lie!!!! I am against ALL sin, no matter who commits it. I have never caused anyone to kill themselves because they have unnatural desires. I show love because God is love. But that does not change the fact that it is a sin.

Go back to school and learn how to read, dude! Sexual orientation is determined at birth such as the tone of your voice, the colour of your skin, etc.. Homos never chose their sexual orientation, it's written in their genes! So according to you and your religion, if "god" created all things, then he created g*y people as well. Why?

If LBGT emoji aren't your cup of tea, don't friggin use them. There, problem solved. However, how sad is the state of society when some matching pixels is considered a "win" for a group oppressed for being different? To me, this isn't anything special. It's a whatever floats your boat thing. Some will use them, some won't. So what. LBGT emoji won't have any effect on the world. There's a duality to Mankind. What one reveres, another will despise. Or have people leaned nothing from the Android vs iOS, Xbox vs PlayStation, Ford vs Chevy, Yankees vs Red Sox, blue vs red, left vs right, etc tripe that's spewed by people all day long, every day, all over the world. Maybe it's because I grew up in an LBGT, interracial household but I could give a rat's pa-toot about someone else's orientation, preferences, or creed. None of it makes anyone more special than anyone else. Every banner someone raises high is an opportunity for someone else to raise an opposing banner higher. It's just a label. And labels identify differences and cause singling out. Wanna fix half the world's problems? Stop adhering to labels. "Live and let love"

there are so many teachings in my religion that said *** marriage will appear, and buildings will became so high so it can reach the sky and some sort of machines that can deliver us to the place we want in a short time , and people talking to machines to help them, and the references about genes and birth.

it will not be the first time for people to insulted our prophet Mohammad (PBUH)

Yeah, and Muslims should get over it. Muhammad is merely a prophet in a religion that will eventually die out like thousands before it as mankind's scientific knowledge grows. Oh, and didn't Muhammad have sex with a 9 year old in your magical story book?

Wow. this is worse than an iOS VS Android battle. Well so what they made a *** and lesbian emoji. And some people have a problem with it? Well to all the homophobic asshats out there go jump in a lake. Seriously. It stupid stuff like this that makes me not wanna live on this planet anymore. As a black man we fought hard to have equal rights with everyone else. It seems like the same thing is going on in the Homosexual world. Basically in this Sh*thole of a country If you arent white and married then you are not normal. Well screw that! I am *** too. and i dont give a flying Fu*k about what people think of me. Ive fought to be where i am today. And i feel so sad for the narrow minded people who are posting what they are on here. it shows your true colors. Also. Im an auto tech major. im 6 foot 7. 320LBS and played football in high school. So ill tell anyone you the same thing i tell anyone else. wanna hate on the ***s? come speak to me. ill give you 2 good freakin reasons to love your fellow man reguardless of his sexual preference or whatever. I see this fitting considering the man just passed today but in the famous words of Rodney King. "Cant we all just get along?"
