Gay In The U.S.A.

Close minded or is it the truth? Dare you look within to find the truth?

Looking around me
Seeing a scary thing all around
People seem to have forgotten
All about morals and christian values
What the bible and Jesus did teach
I know you'll gonna disagree
But I just gotta say
No, it's not ok
To be
Gay in the U.S.A.

Not trying to judge
Not trying to be harsh
Force what I believe on you
But somebodys gotta take a stand
Tell what's on their minds
Even if the rest of the world
Tells me that I'm wrong
I believe 100 percent in the way that I was raised
That it's not ok to be
Gay in the U.S.A.

Marriage is meant for 2
A man and a woman
Not a man and a man
Nor for a woman and a woman
Sorry if the rest of you disagree
But I'm not the one
Who made those rules
Just read the bible and you'll see that
It's not ok to be
Gay in the U.S.A.

No, this ain't hate
No, I'm not
What you call
A homephobe
I just understand
This is the way
That my savior meant for it to be
All of us living how he ask
Know in my heart it's true
If he were standing here today

He would say the same as I am
No, no it's not ever gonna be ok to be....

Gay in the U.S.A.

ok you express yourself very well in this poem and I'm all for the freedom of speech.....but you, my dear, are wrong.
Marriage is for two people that love each other and are devoting the rest of their lives to each other...and the should not be judged on sexual preference.  People cannot control who they love....have you tried telling yourself "No...I do NOT love this person" even though you do? It's not possible and though you may deny it, you are simply lieing to youreself.  Everyone in this world deserves to experience love to its fullest extent and if that means loving the same sex then so be it.....who are we to control that or decide that for them?  This is why I hate religion...because it teaches people to stray away from someone simply because of their belifs or morals or preferences.  All it does is find one more way to separate us.  Who CARES if girls kiss or guys kiss......couples kiss thats just how it works nobody bothers stopping a girl and a guy from kissing in public so why should two boyfriends/girlfriends be shunned for it?  I'm all for no PDA....but thats for EVERY sexual preference, not just homosexuals.  It is not right to judge someone or call them "the curse of satan" because they can't help who they love.....THAT my dear, is what's not right in this world.

cool to voice your own opinions

Ok, I'll be the first to step into this quagmire..First, your write presented your opinions very well, and hooray for the first amendment that gives us all the right to free speech!
Now, moving on, I have to disagree with you on a couple of points. You say you aren't judging, or trying to force your views on others, but on the otherhand, you are shaming someone for what they themselves believe. I don't understand that. Everyone has their own views on this highly debated issue. I say, it's ok, to be gay, to be whatever you want to be or believe, because here in the USA, we have the right to be ourselves. And I, for one, do not think or feel that I have the right to dictate what someone else does woth their life.
Don't get me wrong, not trying to stir the pot and argue etc...that isn't at all my style. I think we should focus on our own selves, and leave others' living to and let live. If it really is the way a supreme being wants it, I am sure he'll let them know in the end.
