Based on some of the posts that I see, ( especially page 8 ), I would say that if some of these people are the "results" of "normal" families, then we
would indeed be better off with the "traditional" "family" being disassembled, LOL.
Geez. More examples of people who so strongly believe in their fairy-tale religions, that they are blinded to any understanding or compassion towards
others who are different from them. Yes, it's always "safer" to conform, for sure. Fit in with the "herd", where it's all "safe" and "normal", ha ha.
I mean these are "sheeple" who want to 'follow" their "shepherd", right?
LGBT Rights don't affect straight people at all. No one can show with any scientific proof ( Yes, science, not blind faith ), how anyone in the LGBT
community has any negative effect on anyone straight by simply existing. I mean, even if there was an old man up in the sky who "created everything",
then he created gay people as well, correct? Christians have an all-or-nothing attitude about this - either there is a god that's in charge and
responsible for everything, or there isn't. That's the logic chain being applied here. You can't pick and choose.
If the bible is the unerrant word of god, then you also have to buy into some pretty ugly atrocities;
EX 7:1, 14, 9:14-16, 10:1-2, 11:7 The purpose of the devastation that God brings to the Egyptians is as follows:
to show that he is Lord;
to show that there is none like him in all the earth;
to show his great power;
to cause his name to be declared throughout the earth;
to give the Israelites something to talk about with their children;
to show that he makes a distinction between Israel and Egypt.
TextEX 21:20-21 With the Lord's approval, a slave may be beaten to death with no punishment for the perpetrator as long as the slave doesn't die
LE 26:29, DT 28:53, JE 19:9, EZ 5:8-10 As a punishment, the Lord will cause people to eat the flesh of their own sons and daughters and fathers
LE 27:29 Human sacrifice is condoned. (Note: An example is given in JG 11:30-39)
Etc, etc, etc....
I really wanted to stay above the fray on this topic, but when people basically argue that you don't have a right to exist, or that you're inherently
"bad" for existing at all, ( much less inherently possessing any legal Civil Rights ), then sometimes you have to speak up to displace their
ignorance. Such is the case here.
I really don't begrudge anyone having their religious beliefs, it is their Right to hold such beliefs. But to expect everyone else to fall in line and
obey your magical thinking, is a bit absurd, to say the least.
Talk about trying to force your beliefs on others!
Of course I realize that no logical debate is possible with superstitious people, I just wanted to add my opinion.
