Is discriminating against someone because of their sexual orientation wrong?

I've never had a publicly gay friend, family member or co-worker. I have no experience with anyone being discriminated against for being gay. I can't understand the concept of male wanting to have sex with another male.

But, I don't have to understand it. Whatever two consenting adults do in the privacy of their own bedroom is none of my business.

I believe that discriminating against someone only because of their sexual orientation is wrong and is/should be constitutionally protected.

I wouldnt have a problem with a gay person working for me if it didnt interfere with his or her job. If customers complained about it, like any other customer complaints, I would have to do something about it.
If an employee made customers uncomfortable, for any reason, he or she would have to be re-evaluated for their position. If he or she couldnt be moved to another position where he or she didnt make customers uncomfortable, then he or she would be let go.
This would apply to anything not just being gay.

I would be totally against that scenario. Church's are private institutions. The constitution is clear. Church and State are separate.

Forcing churches to marry anyone will never happen.

Like others have pointed out, it's impossible to answer this question without defining discrimination.

In general, I'm probably closest to the morally wrong to discriminate, but legally OK.

IRL, I have no problem with gays, invisible or flamboyant, closeted or open. But I also don't have a problem with people who have religious-based opposition to homosexuality as long as it doesn't manifest itself in violent or hateful behavior. As long as they "love the sinner", I'm OK with them hating the "sin", even though I don't share that view at all.

I don't think its right to discriminate against someone because of their sexuality.

I don't know where that falls in your poll though.

Kind of jumping in on this but couldn't this all kind of go in the direction of hiring the handicapped? After legislation was passed to protect handicapped rights, employers were hesitant to hire handicapped people for fear of lawsuits in case of the need to fire them...so the legislation, while intending well, actually hurt the handicapped work force.

if you think it's not wrong, and perfectly normal,can you watch two guys together without feeling uncomfortable? IMO, that's a better qualifer.

..the purpose of this thread (again)is to discriminate and castigate those who don't agree with the acceptance.

that said, we're already moving towards expectance.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

Cop out.

Same could be said for owning slaves in 1850.
