Normally, I wouldn't call any question irrelevant...but I had a discussion recently regarding homosexuality. Besides all of the Biblical drivel and
philosophical debate, I was thrown when evidence suggesting homosexuality IS in fact a choice was thrust in my face. The immediate demand was that I
refute that specific argument...and I thought it would be a good idea to post my response here.
Since homosexuality is one of the great arguments among politics, it is sure to be found here...and I was not disappointed. By the way, I'm posting
this in honor of parents and friends, many of whom are the subject of this discussion.
Now...the question of choice. It is my opinion (and I consider myself to be a very reliable source, having extensive background in the subject - I was
raised around homosexuals. I had an open family
) that homosexuality varies...some have a choice, some do not. Sometimes it's a matter of falling
in love, sometimes it's an aesthetic appreciation, and sometimes it's a subconscious message.
But the thing is, it's an irrelevant question. The only reason choice came into play is because homosexuals were viewed as lepers...except lepers were
simply unfortunate. Gays are simply damned. Yes, it all came from religion. The ONLY reason it was ever considered wrong to begin with, is because of
the Bible, which is STILL being questioned after centuries of existence.
If the question of morals wasn't involved, the question of choice wouldn't be necessary. People would love whomever they desired, and there would be
no issue. Choice is not relevant; the question of morals is. But the thing is, the Bible's moral code and the human moral code don't exactly line up.
We've been TAUGHT to demonize homosexuality, but other countries raised both with and WITHOUT the Bible have shown no consideration for the spiritual
aspect of such acts.
It's a matter of taste, and if every difference of taste was treated like homosexuality is, then there would be no one left alive. Or everyone would
be at war. The medical arguments could easily be replicated for heterosexual relationships...AIDS spreads just as easily through heterosexual coitus
as it does through anything else.
Try to understand without the voices of society to guide you. See it through your OWN understanding of love. Variety is a blessing, my friends. It is
the spice of life. Don't abhor it, for then you abhor life itself. Love the homosexuals for loving each other; don't hate them for HOW they do it.
After all, choice or not...it doesn't really matter.
