these bible verses could be interpreted in several different ways. it seems to me that this is telling us that homosexuality will be an inevitability,
as is death.
- she ate the fruit, now we're gonna die.
- they followed the creature rather than the creator, now some will be gay.
i am not a religious person; however, i believe that the bible can be explained, translated, and interpreted in many, many different ways. i do not
feel as if this is just reason for "the church" to deem some to be inferior or unacceptable by "god" and society.
being a homosexual isn't an illness or disease. it is not something that can be "cured" and certainly not something that a religious person can
"pray away". and for that matter, if praying works so well, don't you think that there are more important things to "pray away"? aids, cancer,
racism, INTOLERANCE, hate, gas prices!? c'mon people, think about it!
also, there is abslutely nothing wrong with someone independently coming into a church and wanting to be more "mainstream" by converting into a
hetrosexual. but honestly, how long have they been told that they were anti-christ and/or evil for being true to themselves? some people have very
christian families and they only want to fit in and feel loved. of course they would want to be this so-called normal person. all they can do is
suppress their feelings and urges. and that can't be healthy after an extended period of time.
Shame on anyone who could look down upon another human being for expressing their love for another person. open your eyes and look around you. there
is so much hate and intolerance in the world STILL today. life is so short. why cant people just let others be happy?
