Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but don't most major religions also stress the idea of equality? From my understanding of religion, God was supposed to have created everyone equal.

If it's a mutual consent, why is it considered wrong?
Just so you all know, the Bible condemns "a man lying with a man". The Bible does not condemn gay relationships. However, we seem to live in a self-indulgent, hedonistic, pleasure-striving society that believes lust and sex are the same thing as love and affection. God does not say that two men or two women are forbidden to love one another, to share in an loving relationship.
From http://people.howstuffworks.com/love7.htm In romantic love, when two people have sex, oxytocin is released, which helps bond the relationship. According to researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, the hormone oxytocin has been shown to be "associated with the ability to maintain healthy interpersonal relationships and healthy psychological boundaries with other people."Vasopressin, an antidiuretic hormone, is another chemical that has been associated with the formation of long-term, monogamous relationships.Endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, also play a key role in long-term relationships. They produce a general sense of well-being, including feeling soothed, peaceful and secure. Like dopamine and norepinephrine, endorphins are released during sex.
