So many people, myself included, have friends or family members that are gay that coming here and reading some of the infantile things that get posted is insulting. I also know, as the mother of a straight, college age student, that being gay really isn't as looked down upon, as with the older generation. Whether homosexuality is a sin (and I think it is) or not, I just don't see it as a sin that it is my place to decide. I think adultery and divorce are much graver sins, as they tend to harm many more people than something two adults may or may not do in the privacy of their own homes.
My straight son’s best friend is gay, my husband’s brother is gay. I don’t support any acquisition of rights based on group affiliation and I am completely against gay marriage. The issue for me is that the current policy does not exclude gays from military service and why should someone who is gay be kicked out of the military just for being gay if they have served with honor? It doesn’t make any sense to me. And it makes less sense to me that we should hate someone just because we don’t like eho they are.
Nice moral relativism you've got going there. Perhaps you should be posting at DU?
have you served in a combat unit to base your view or is it the usual crap of well I know a couple of queers and they’re nice?
Go camping with couple of same sex as you homosexuals in the mountains, for about 9 months to a year.
I am of the opinion that the views expressed by people on matters of homosexuality are strongly influenced by whether they have openly gay people in their sphere of life.
I think homosexuality is abhorent, but I also think adultery is abhorent, as is any sex outside of marriage; I also think anal sex is abhorent, although that is all the more common now in heterosexual couples.
So when I see some guy, or some woman, at work, or on the street, I would simply prefer NOT to know what sexual perversion they have chosen for their private lives.
But when I know that people are gay, I simply ignore it, and hope they don’t try to remind me too much. In exchange, I don’t tell them about my own sex life. I assume that somy guy in the locker room at the gym is gay, I know gay people at work, I’ve had other gay aquantainces. I don’t hide my belief that they are sinning, but I don’t beat them up about it any more than I beat up all the other sinners (which would include myself, and every other human).
So the indoctrination DOES work! Desensitize the youth to what is a perverse lifestyle.
Yeah, and I spent a lot of years working in San Francisco, so I do have a perspective on the issue. Sick, sick, sick.
you’re talking college kids who are brainwashed.
try the military or join it and you’ll see the majority of younger guys do not want repeal and no I am not old either
God has called us to make righteous Judgments....you've renigged on the responsibility before Him to agree that Homosexuality is sin....in doing so you are opposing Him. Individuals cannot sit on the fence when it comes to making Judgment calls. By not making a Judgment call you are then siding with the Homosexual community.
Neither adultery are divorce are resulting in people dying 20 to 30 years younger than normal people. They haven't resulted in 20% of divorcees or adulterers contracting HIV in urban areas as homosexual males have. Neither adulterers or divorcees account for 65% of the cases of syphilis in the nation. Most adulterers and divorcees aren't the primary group hanging out at public restrooms and parks looking for orgies.
The Bible considers homosexuality a capital crime, vile and an abomination. Obviously, you don't take the sin as serious as God does so stop pretending to speak for God.
