When it comes to practice, all they perpetuate is sin, HIV and a host of other STDs, suicides, alcohol and drug abuse, partner abuse, an aggressive agenda to teach their filth to our children as "sex ed", a desire to destroy the institution of marriage by co-habiting and demanding society call them 'married', take our tax dollars to research the disease they created and perpetuate..AIDS, and I could go on and on. Who on earth would want to call these twisted, vile people "friends"? Simply because they want to live in a economically sound country doesn't mean they have 'conservative leanings', it just means they're perverts who want to live in comfort.
Unfortunately, the term "conservative" has bastardized itself into the realm of economics, of which is it has nothing to do with. It's just another sleazy way for liberals and progressives to put up a facade. "I'm a raving sexual deviate, but I want less government and less spending, (just so long as they don't spend less on AIDS), so I'm a conservative". barf
I would be lying if I said I didn’t find most homosexuals to be bizarre, deviant, detestable fruitcakes.
Some of these people with whom I associate are hold-overs from before I REALLY understood where I stood politically and socially, before I realized that I am a conservative. That they do not push homosexuality on me or those others we associate with, that they oppose programs such as obamacare and are against big government, that they understand and respect that my religious beliefs do not lead to approval of homosexuality, that they believe one of the biggest damaging forces in our country are the “loud and proud” crowd, and that they were not in favor of the repeal of DADT speaks volumes.
These are not people with whom I interact on a daily basis, and they certainly are not primary movers within my life. But I also have no tossed them aside as I have come into my conservative beliefs, because I am of the mind that nobody is without the potential for change and redemption until the day they die. And I am of the mind that it is vital that they have conservative influence, because without a strong conservative voice they will be left only with progressives to guide them.
Even if it only results in keeping them uncertain and prevents political involvement on the side of liberalism, that is worth the while. If it results in even a single one of them voting conservative, all the better.
How do you reach those with whom you do not interact?
Oh, by the way, I want to say this before it gets brought up for me.
I am NOT one of their “allies,” as described in the above article. That implies that I am workings for their agenda which is absolutely NOT the case.
I oppose homosexual marriage, and don’t even believe there CAN be homosexual marriage. I think that homosexuals already HAVE equal rights in that they have exactly the same rights as everyone else. I do not believe homosexuality is legitimate or even tolerable, and homosexual behavior of any sort is not allowed in my home.
I wanted to make that abundantly clear before my previous explanation of my interaction with homosexuals turns into an argument or rant with the usual flames directed my way.
