    Help me settle a debate with my DH.

    Does anyone on here believe that it should be illegal to say Homosexuality is wrong or to say that Homosexuality is a sin?

    No, i don't think it should be illegal to say that.

    But to be clear....dealing with the consequences of saying something like that is an entirely different matter.

    A local apple orchard here showed their support for a ban on gay marriage with a sign on their property and people started saying on their facebook page that they would not return to their farm. It annoyed the bejeezus out of me that this farms supporters were claiming that these people's freedom of speech was violated.

    So nope, saying you don't like homosexuality should be perfectly legal, but on the flip side, don't expect there to be no consequences to doing so either.

    No! You always have the right to say anything you want, just as you have the right to believe anything you want. But there might be repercussions about saying what you want, especially in certain circumstances.

    No. Simply saying homosexuality is a sin shouldn't put you in jail, or even get you ticketed. Saying it in a job interview might cost you the job, saying it in front of gay people might get you walloped, saying it in front of your gay landlord might get you evicted in some places, and saying it on the job might get you fired, especially if your job involves interacting with the public.

    So is it that someone believes that it should be illegal? Or is it that someone beleived that anyone who supports the rights of homosexuals would think it should be illegal?

    The back story was that one of our FB friends changed their relationship status to In a Relationship and the picture was of him and another man. That started DH and I talking about it. He was saying that it irritated him that people though that it should be illegal to say homosexuality was wrong. I said, no one thinks that. He said yes they do and on went the debate. For the record, neither of us really care what someone does in their bedroom as long as they don't insist on doing it in front of us, but I do think you should be able to legally say that it is sin.
