Most gays I know are Christian. (sorry if they don't fit your concept of Christian).
You seriously need to experience life outside your bubble.
First, please read the post before you comment with uninformed disrespect. There is no hate in my post. There is also no mention of
Christianity....YOU mentioned that. There is a reason for that, because my concept of what a true Christian should be and what the modern version is,
is NOT what the Bible says they should be. There is a massive disconnect and Christians have been busy reinventing themselves and making up the rules
as they go for the past 1,000 years or so. This is why we can have Christian clergy committing acts of adultery, homosexuality, money laundering,
just to name a few, as well as Christian congregations that do all this and more, to include homosexual acts that are condemned. We can turn this
into a Biblical debate, but it would be a short one...if you call yourself a Christian, then you can't pick and choose what rules you want to abide
by. That's how politicians and law enforcement get corrupt....they believe themselves to be above the law, and pick and choose which laws apply to
them and which ones don't.
I love everyone, despite what they do, as God loves me despite my own sins. Let's get that straight. No one here is perfect, and I am not
condemning anyone. I am merely debating an "act" as something that is a choice, where others insist it isn't a choice - moreover, it is a sin, no
different than adultery, promiscuity, pedophilia, rape, molestation, beastiality, necrophilia, orgies, and any other number of sexual indiscretion and
perversion that I've missed. Not a sin against me, but a sin against their own bodies, their creator, and their souls. At some point, most of us
have been guilty of at least one of these, (hopefully, just the promiscuity). Thank God for forgiveness and grace, if we have the wisdom to actually
be remorseful and ask for it, that is.
Gays and their supporters are arguing that those who do not support the ACT (not the person) are wrong to do so, and I am simply pointing out that
gays are wrong to commit the ACT while expecting everyone else to jump on board with support.
I will never buy for one moment that gays don't have a choice. Just as monks and nuns CHOOSE to be celibate and married to God, straights choose to
be straight and gays choose to be gay. I CHOOSE to be faithful to my spouse. I could also choose not to be. I CHOOSE not to view porn out of
respect to the person I married. We all make choices every day, and every day we reinvent who we are....gays are not exempt from this concept.
Until I see genetic evidence from every person who claims they don't have a choice, my stance is firm. And even then, I want to see proof that it
isn't DNA damage caused by something else. Since I don't feel this is a natural evolution in human progression, but rather a possible mutation that
works against population and procreation, (if it IS genetic), I do feel scientists should continue to work on a cure.
There was a study put out that homosexuals, compared to their straight counterparts, were far more depressed, unhappy, and leading unfulfilled lives,
(according to THEM!!) despite many of them being in what they considered loving relationships. There are countless clinics that help people like
this, and like it or not, there are many "recovering" homosexuals - just as addictions to drugs, alcohol and gambling can be cured with
psychological help, so too can sexual addictions, to include homosexuality. The answer is clear as to why they are far more unhappy....there will
always be a "hole" and an emptiness that cannot be filled by entering into a relationship with someone of the same sex, or rotating partners like
they're going through a buffet line.
So for now, let's agree to disagree. I'm working off of clinical evidence. Until you provide what I seek, I will continue to love those who are
different than me, but I will believe that they always have a choice, just as all of us do.
