I have compassion for gay people and think they should be able to get married. The topic came up at a family barbecue today. One of my relatives, who thinks gay marriage is an attack on traditional marriage said, homosexuality is a mental illness and should be treated as such.-like schizophrenia. I know homosexuality had been considered a psychiatric disorder in the past. What would a good argument be? What do you think? This same relative said homosexuality is a sin. I reminded him that Jesus NEVER said anything about homosexuality.Answer Question

I don't know why this is in religion, but I guess you could have told him that the bible tells them that it isn't their place to judge others.
I don't think it's a mental illness. I don't really even think it's a choice. I think it's a preference and that it is something people are born with. I can't imagine people choosing to feel that they have to pretend that they are interested in people they aren't, and that they can't fully be who they are even with the people closest to them.
