Well there are too many replies since i was last on to reply to each one individualy so here is just one reply.
First off I am trying to figure out how having a differing view and stating my oponion on a topic as well as choosing to be a straight male
constitutes as hateing gay people? Never once in any of my posts have I stated that I HATE gays this is not true. Yes I disagree with the lifestyle
but I dont hate them. Never once have I ever caused harm to a homosexual because they chose to be homosexual. Hitler attempted to kill the jews
because he hated them. I have never tried to kill anyone who was homosexual. As I said before just because I disagree with the lifestyle and choose
not to live it myself does not make it hate.
Secondly: Just because I was raised with morals in my life, am a christian who believes in the bible, and am straight does not make me a bigot.
Definition of BIGOT
: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially: one who regards or treats the members of
a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance
this reverts back to my last point. I do not hate homosexuals and I tolerate those who are not so flamboyant about it. therefore sorry that makes me
not a bigot.
Third: In the beginning God created Adam and Eve Male and Female and said to them BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY. Gen chapter 1 verse 28. God seen Adam
needed a companion and he made Eve a female. nowhere in the bible does God tell any man to take another mad as his "partner" nor does he tell a
woman to take another woman as her "partner" Gods intent when he created the world was for man and woman to be togather as husband and wife.
However he gave humans our own free will to choose right or wrong. Adam and Eve chose to do wrong in the garden by eating the forbidden fruit however
since they chose to eat the fruit and repent not for it they were punished. Just as we still today will be punished for our actions contrary to what
is right no matter what situation it is.
Fourth: I know many of you choose not to believe in the bible and that is fine I cannot force you to believe in it just as I will not allow myself to
be forced to believe agianst it. This whole topic is my conviction as a christian man. There is not hate or bigotry involved in it what so ever.
This is my conviction I have shared with you all. I am not saying you have to accept it or agree with it but you took time to read and consider (and
for that I thank you) my beliefs.
Fifth: the questions keeps resurfacing When did I choose to be straight? I was born straight and have chosen and continue to choose every day to
remain straight. Just as others have chosen not to stay straight. I have also been accused of being a closet homosexual myself. NOT SO! Never once
have i ever found anyone of the male gender attractive of even considerd being gay.
Sixth: I have also been called closed minded or intolerable of homosexuals. Agian not so, I have throughout my careear worked with homosexuals and
bisexuals. Never once have I discriminated agianst or done any harm or negativity to them. I sat and bullcrapped with them same as I did the
straight employees. When the topic of homosexuality came up I just made clear to them that if that was what they want to do with their lives ok
however that is not how I choose to live my life. All I ask is they not try to convert me over to their lifestyle and in return I would not try to
bring them over to my lifestyle. I also used to volunteer at a fire department and it did not matter to me who the patient was, black white hispanic
asian gay straight fat skinny pretty ugly tall short when their life was on the line I worked my hardest to save all of them. So that blows the close
minded and intolerable parts out of the _ I have also been called ignorant which is agian a misconception
Definition of IGNORANT
1 destitute of knowledge or education ; also: lacking knowledge or comprehension of the thing specified
b: resulting from or showing lack of knowledge or intelligence
I have knowledge of the topic of which I write. those who have used the word have used it as a substitute. What they really mean when calling me
ignorant is "I have no good or knowledgable comeback for what you have said but I disagree so I will use this word instead" So I here prove
ignorant is not a good word to use in this situation find a new one.
Seventh: Those of you who were takin aback by my laughing let me explain it to you. I laugh and am entertained by how riled up some people can get
that someone strongly expresses an oponion or view that is different from their own. Even more entertaining is when those people revert to childish
name calling for lack of a educadet reply. take a breath relax sit back it is just a difference in oponion dont have a stroke!
