It even goes beyond ignorance, all the way to stupidity in my opinion.
Ouch? We can be more civil no?
Being homosexual or heterosexual is NOT a choice. You cannot convert someone who is homosexual into a heterosexual, or vice-versa. That is just not
how biology operates. The many examples of homosexuality in the animal kingdom also proves that man is not the only animal that engages in such
This is actually a decent argument, and I like how you brought animals in. I know we have all had a dog that humped another male dog My question is
why the behavior happens, I dont have a good answer, but it may be practice, or a domination thing. Most rape experts say rape happens not for sex,
but to show superiority
People who are straight are attracted to the opposite sex, and this occurs on a primal level, and there is absolutely nothing the person can do to
change that primal reaction. The same is true for a gay person. They are attracted to the same sex with the same primal instinct, which does not leave
them with a choice. Anyone who says that a gay person should simply engage in relations with the opposite sex, despite the fact that they are not
attracted to them, is cruel. Imagine yourself engaging in relations with the same sex, and you will have an idea as to how gay people feel about
heterosexuality. It is just gross to them, the same as it is for straight people.
This is something I can't talk to really I'd be dishonest if I did
So please stop the ignorance if you hate gay people, or think that they have any choice in the matter whatsoever. You should educate yourself on
biology, genetics, instinct, etc, as then maybe you will grasp the scientific concept of attraction. And it is all based on science. And the religious
people who look down on homosexuals, I have something to say to you as well.
You claim the Bible says man should not lie with man, but the Bible also says and eye for an eye. That does not mean that is what your religion
teaches, as I'm assuming most are Christians. Too many people take the Bible out of context, because they read a simple verse or passage and think
that is God's word, or the teachings of their religion. This is NOT the case by any means. How people are so ignorant is beyond me. Any person who
claims to be a Christian, yet looks down on gay people, better stop and repent lest they go to hell. I am not saying this based on what I believe, but
on what they themselves believe. See I know all about Christianity, and I am telling you that if you are Christian, you should not be judging ANYONE
for ANY reason whatsoever, because that judgment will be visited back on you tenfold.
ok we obviously had a dissconnect
Jesus taught not only tolerance, but also said that the second most important commandment was to love your neighbor. In context, "neighbor" means
every single person you interact with, read about, hear about, etc. Anyone and everyone. I am reminded of those people from the Westboro Baptist
Church. Every single on of them, based on their own beliefs, will likely go to hell...The exact fate they are claiming others will suffer, as these
church members judge them. They forget that Jesus talked about the speck of sawdust in the person's eye whom you are judging, while you yourself have
an entire plank, or board, in your own eye.
Now I am not "preaching" because I think everyone will listen. In fact, this religious portion of this thread is meant to engage only those who claim
to be Christian, yet who still judge gay people. They have no right to do so and still call themselves Christians, and in fact from a scientific point
of view they have no right to judge gay people either. So whether you are religious or not, if you claim gay people are wrong or evil, YOU are the
person who is wrong, and the one who is evil, because you are passing judgment on people based on a topic you know nothing about.
