First of all it is a fallacy that school prayer was banned. I knew people that prayed at school on up into the early 1990's. Recently my neighbor's
grandchild told me she prayed before her tests every time (2008). Prayer in silence is allowed as long as it does not disrupt others.
What was removed and fought against was an assembly led prayer over the whole school. Many times as my own father (Christian) has said during those
times that when this prayer was uttered over the loudspeaker nobody really paid it much attention as it was not personal and just words. Some
students of other beliefs left the assembly.
During the early 1990's there were enacted silent moments over issues. This gave each person a small time to address the issue in themselves through
whichever belief system or non belief. The Christians prayed, the Atheist pondered the issue, I a Taoist considered how this new information fit into
balance. One of my friends asked his ancestors to intervene on the issue (his belief).
If homosexuality is in fact the cause of God's wrath perhaps it is time for him to come down from his throne and elaborate instead of raging against
the machine since the beginning of humans because gays have been seen in history forever. Again I hear the tripe about being homosexual only having
to do with the "sexual urge" it is much deeper than that. There have been studies that link the reactions of pheromones in gays as being similar to
that of females.
Nevertheless when one stays partnered with someone 10, 20, 30. 40 years or longer it isn't sexual attraction that bonds them as when they look at
each other over time and see wrinkled old bodies but, still feel love I think something is deeper than simple sexual attraction.
You seem to insinuate gays being around as being coming from Atheist type backgrounds. This is not the case as the majority are/were Christians and
came from those homes as this is the majority beliefs as evidenced by polls stating that around 82% of the US are Christian. I live in what is deemed
"The Bible Belt". You won't see many gays out in the open but, if you look deeper in the area you will see many men that married out of duty to
family and to fit in.
I've personally seen people beat themselves up about being gay, calling on God to remove it but, it does not work. I know friends that have been
kidnapped by their own family and sent to sexual re-education centers to attempt to force the gay from them and it didn't work or they hid being
gay, got married and cheated with men. Some have severe personality disorders after the experience and have to acquire psychiatric treatment later in
A beautiful same sex story can even be seen in the bible:
The story of David and Jonathan has been the real story about gays that has been suppressed. I can put the whole story up but, for the sake of my
time I will put up a few verses.
1 Samuel 18:1-4
And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved
him as his own soul. And Saul took him that day, and would let him go no more home to his father's house. Then Jonathan and David made a covenant,
because he loved him as his own soul. And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was upon him, and gave it to David, and his garments, even to his
sword, and to his bow, and to his girdle.
And why was King Saul so adamant on killing David? It was because he had subverted the crown by having an affair with his son (The King To Be).
1 Samuel 20:30- Saul's words against his son.
“You son of a perverse, rebellious woman! Do I not know that you have chosen the son of Jesse to your own shame and to the shame of your mother’s
nakedness? For as long as the son of Jesse lives upon the earth, neither you nor your kingdom shall be established.”
David proclaims his love for Jonathan surpassed the love for women
there is much more, read about it yourself.
