We have a gay man here at work, and he told me one day that he finds the word "Queer" offensive.
I told him that I call them as I see them, and proceeded to explain that it isn't meant to be an insult, just an adjective.
QUEER means "odd or peculiar behavior" ....and who would argue that homosexuality isn't odd?
Anyways, he doesn't talk to me anymore....stupid queer. ;)
Gay===Happy in a QUEER sort of way.
Interestingly, they aren’t to fond of “homosexual” either. “Nice, smart people with good taste” appears to be their chosen moniker. As you put it, stupid queers.
Gotta tell you, as a Christian, one of my biggest struggles is with the extreme dislike I have for these homosexuals wanting to force every free individual into celebrating their life choices. A pastor of a large church here in Arizona said recently that he expects he could be in prison for preaching the Bible within ten years. In America. Not for preaching salvation but for daring to preach that homosexuality is a sin. How did we get to a place in this country where people like this perverted cretin, “Perez Hilton”, have the power to dictate what men of God can preach in their own churches?? With a gay SIL, it makes it even harder to walk that line between, “hate the sin, show love to the sinner.”
