You know though that judging people is not necessarily hating them?

Not agreeing with someones lifestyle is judging them. It's no ones business what your life style is.

Society changes, there are things you except now as normal you would have rejected as evil one hundred years ago.

And no my parent did not raise me like that.

Edit, BTW hope I didn't come across too harsh in that last post, it felt good writing it, but now I've softened lol.

"I believe that homosexuality goes against the laws of nature."

google or youtube,, homosexuality in nature... your god has lotsa splainin ta do!!

obviously gay sex does not result in the reproduction of a child.. this is why you think it goes against nature,, the biggest part of our nature and life is the goal of reproduction,, does this mean every activity we do that is not reproduction goes against nature?

what if nature understands the badness of overpopulation and gay is gods solution?

No, I do not see them as lower than myself. We are all people. I believe that homosexuality goes against the laws of nature. I have frequently seen gay couples kissing and holding hands, and while I do believe they have the right to do that, to ME that is not the natural order of things.



If we are all people then shouldn't we all be allowed to do the same things? I get where you are coming from, I really do. Many people view this issue the exact same way as you and there is nothing wrong with that, but at the end of the day if a "straight" couple can hold hands and kiss in public then why should a "gay" couple not be afforded the same thing without people thinking it is wrong? You may not see it as the natural order of things, but maybe a gay man or a lesbian woman would look at your lifestyle and think that you are not following the natural order of things. It's all relative to who's eyes you are looking at it through.

Whether you think it's against nature, or not, it doesn't give you the right to force restriction on them.

Homosexuality is no longer illegal.

"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

Allow them their freedom, and won't you be forgiven?

I hate people with pink avatars, you should all be banned lol. I'm starting a petition to enact that as an ATS T&C!

I was raised to Walk my Own Path.

Honesty - - Integrity - - an accept people for their Heart - - was the base of my upbringing.

"Accept People for their Heart" - - not their color - not their sexuality - - Their Heart.

Most people that find homosexuality wrong or unnatural generally have those views because they find the thought of homosexual intercourse or foreplay sickening or disgusting.

Which is fair enough. I find the thought of heterosexual sex quite a turn off and enough to make me go soft in any given situation.

I don't agree with your argument. You may not agree with what I'm serving my family for dinner, but that doesn't mean you are judging me for serving it???

Disagree: fail to agree, differ in opinion
Judge: to form an opinion

You are right, it is not my business what people do in their lifestyle. Jeffrey Dohmer enjoyed his lifestyle choices immensley, that doesn't mean I agree with it.

No worries, I enjoy a healthy debate

Yes, and they think they have the right for their disgust to be used to deny those they hate their rights.

I think Hitler did something similar.

Yeah but I am not supporting laws that deny you eating food because I hate what you eat.

Well there is a difference, gay marriage doesn't hurt anyone.

Sorry about that, the cancer, all gone now I hope?

You know I was just making a point about judging people, because I don't happen to agree with their choices?

Whatever excuse Christians use to be against it, they're being hypocrites for acting on it. Who are they to impose their dislikes on others? Who do they think the world belongs to, them? Again a hypocritical stance if you're a Christian.

I feel like I am beating a dead horse here: I have been polite to you, you resorted to name calling, and questioning my parenting skills. What do you know about my heart? I have simply stated my beliefs. You believe something different than I do. Obviously you are as devoted to your opinion, as I am mine.

It wasn't too long ago that colored people werent even recognised as human beings let alone having any rights. How the times have changed. The US even has a colored leader now. And it wont be long until gays have equal rights right across the board and until a gay president runs the show. Bring it on I say! We are all human beings and despite contrary belief we are all equal and wealth and status means absolutely sweet F*** all when we depart these earthly vehicles.

Name calling?

Well - - your beliefs want to deny human beings Equal Rights.

And Don't dare tell me they have the same rights you do to marry the opposite sex.

Is that a Legal Government Marriage License?

One that even Atheists have a right to?

I am doing well, thank you.

There are people who hate gay people, there are people who hate Christians, there are people who hate Muslims, there are people who hate blacks, there are people who just simply hate other people. Intolerance runs deep my friend. Just because I do not agree with someones lifestyle does NOT mean that I hate them. Every culture, every religion, everyone imposes their beliefs on everyone else.

You believe that gay marriage should be legal and I do not. You have your beliefs and I have mine. Are you saying that we can't be friends because we disagree?
