Same Sex Marriage- Romans

Read out or Romans today. Paul talks about men and women being lead away from God, and a sign of it being sexual immorality, with men and women choosing un-natural relations with one another, specifically homosexual behavior. I think this is a passage that could be used to say that homosexuality is a sin. It is important to note though, that just before this Paul discusses that people are led away from God so that others can see what it is to be called to God. He also states that many are led to God after being away from God, like the corinthians themselves whom he is writing this letter to. He states after this that all will be saved by grace. That we are not to concern ourselves with the behaviors of others our ourselves or the law, but with the state of our heart, for out of our heart comes our salvation by faith. It makes me think that there really isn't much point in worrying about saving others, the point is to live out the faith you have by loving others and exercising the gifts of the spirit granted to you by God. This whole issue of same sex marriage being a 'christian issue is so absurd to me. Everyone is lost in sin, why are so many people hung up on this?  There is so much here, just read it. Tell me what you think.
