It's easy to shut down the debate.
Like i wrote in the thread "Gay Agenda" :
Think of it just like religion. There always the religious extremists, some who ruin everything for the rest of the religion, just like there are
some extreme gay people who are just a crying shame, and ruining everything for other gay people, also just as some extreme heterosexuals are ruining
it for more accepting heterosexuals. Hell, I can barely walk the streets in Scotland anymore without having some sort of abuse thrown at me, but it's
always by the same sort of people, not every hetero I come across.
Basically, just like religion, just like EVERYTHING that can be debated, there are of course some gay people that have an agenda to gain special
rights, and to be viewed as much more than the average person, but not every gay person, just a small minority.
The "silent majority" of gay people are just like the "silent majority" of religions, of political associations etc. ... we just don't give a tinky's
See, while the debate ends, you even learn a Scottish phrase
I would love to answer this question.
I do not agree with prostitution, therefore I do not take my children downtown to witness it first hand.
I do not agree with murder, therefore I do not let my children watch shows that depict violence or murder.
I do not agree with gluttony, therefore we do things in moderation.
I do not agree with homosexuality, I think it goes against the natural laws of the universe, therefore I do not want that behavior forced on my
children everytime we go to the mall or turn on the t.v. We try to protect our children from things that we see as harmful or inappropriate. I am sure
that you have things that you deem inappropriate.
I do not hate you, I do not judge you. It is a personal belief that I stand behind. I'm sure that you also have beliefs that are important to you. I
That's the thing though, people obviously wouldn't allow their children to witness moral degradation such as murder, gluttony, prostitution, yet when
you mentioned homosexuality, you used the word "forced." It is not being forced at all. If your children view homosexual material on the television
when you wish them not to, then that is plain old bad parenting. If you don't allow them to see murder, prostitution etc on television, then it's
just as easy for you to make sure they don't view homosexuality. In fact, that should be pretty easy, there is a lot more prostitution and murder
shown on television than homosexuality.
If it is being taught in schools, and you disagree, you can just as easily pull your child out of any of that teaching. Yes, you may disagree with
it, but just like everything else, you can easily protect your child from viewing such things, or being taught such things.
