I don't "object" to homosexual behavior per se, but I also don't approve of it being promoted as just as normal as being "black and ... white or
asian or latino". It is not.
First off, let me state that I am not a member of any organized religion. I do not have a rebel flag in my pickup truck (or even a pickup truck for
that matter) and I do have several queer friends and relatives that I cherish deeply. That being said, one cannot deny the fact that being gay is an
aberration of the natural order. The reason being is that the raison d'être of every living thing - from the lowest nematode to the largest
whale follows 3 inviolable drives: 1. to acquire energy 2. to convert energy 3. to reproduce. That's it - the essence of living. Show me a species
that doesn't adhere to one of these 3 directives and I'll show you a species with a very limited shelf-life. That's a simple biological fact. In
summation, the first two motives are merely enablers for the final and ultimate motivator; to make more of its own kind.
Now you can layer over whatever kind of enlightened thinking you want over that, but the truth is that if a species does not reproduce then it does
not survive. Therefore the urge to reproduce must be a core component to a 'normal' representative of any species. To NOT reproduce is against the
order of nature. Being gay goes against that order.
However, that does not mean to say that gays should be oppressed or vilified any more than we should abuse the blind or the lame (also non-functional
aberrations of our species). A rabbit born blind is doomed to its fate - a human born blind may be shown compassion and survive despite the dictates
of a harsh nature because of our collective human compassion. So it should be with gays. Conversely, in our enlightened minds, it does not mean that
we should mistakenly celebrate being gay any more than we would tell our children "Gee, it sure is GREAT to be blind!". That is not the truth and we
all know it: no one wants to be blind because it is not normal and it is not positive for the species. That goes for being queer as well.
We need to find a middle ground here: we must accept gays and allow them the full function and support that we can provide from our privileged
positions as thinking beings. At the same time, we cannot deny our position as animals - living representatives of a chain of natural reproduction -
and pretend that gays are just as "normal" as everybody else.
