    I find all these comments hilarious. So just because you want a child, sure, it does mean that you need a woman to do that, but does it mean you have to LOVE or even be attracted to that woman? No. Nothing of the sort. God hates no one. It's never been said in the bible that god hates anyone. God becomes disappointed, but homosexuality has never been taken any action by god, according to your bible. Next time you think that homosexuality is wrong, tell me why it isn't prohibited by the 10 Commandments or a part of the Deadly Sins?

    I rele don't care abt the Bible...dats biblical days and this is modern time...we must cope with the fact that there is an increase in the gay population everyday. We must adapt to it solely and leave the gay ppl alone...ALL ALONE. Way 2 go Ricky!!! We with U!!

    Didn't he come out like 2 years ago? Maybe he did to me! Lol! I can't believe all the negative comments. All the crap about the bible. I dare any of you to say that you live a blameless life, attend church religiously(pun intended), follow the teachings of Jesus. All of you should be on your knees asking your God for forgiveness for your hatred & judgement of others. From what I know about Jesus & God, love your neighbor & no one can judge but God. I'm not even a christian & I know that. Shameful, all of you

    To Ricky Martin and all the homosexuals around the world you might try to justfy what you are to us the humans but to God u are worse than dogs ,used to like u Ricky but from taday i am burning all your CDs.Why try and justify yourself logically without even bringing the bible into this a man and man having sex come on guys and the other thing why have children it goes to show that homosexuals are crazy you contradict yourselves by acknowledging that you need a woman to have a child thats the way God wanted it,hence he created Adam and Eve and not Adam and John.Eish wake up people you are the greatest sinners if your government supports it by giving you marriage rights it doesnt mean its right in the eyes of God.

    No Marti, having kids and not taking care of them financially or otherwise is extremely selfish. Ignoring your kids to go on a dance show for publicity is selfish. Not being honest with your kids while trying to raise them with integrity is selfish. Voting off people's right to marry whom they want with a consenting adult when their business doesn't affect your life personally is selfish. But heck, what do I know?
