TT we understand your position. You believe it's a choice and it being unnatural are the key issues and I don't. What is natural is in the eye of the beholder. And guess what?.. more people see it my way and less people are seeing it your way..cause human truth and love win out.
I'm done giving my opinions to you now. You know I won't budge and I know you won't either. Enjoy life and be good to others.
Just replace the word "gays" in your last comment with "blacks", "women's rights", "blacks marrying whites", Jews, etc..and it will be basically be the same argument that many like you have said before. Religion was used for the all the above to support all the these prejudices. Bullying and terrorism..really? All that has been done is make the case for equal rights. No bombs, no killings. You will live you life feeling that way and I get it. My heart and your heart are just gonna have to agree to disagree. There will always be people that will be disgusted or see as morally wrong about other religions, race, sex, and sexual orientation because of their beliefs. And then there are the enlightened people that understand love is love between 2 consenting adults. We know what kind of person you fall into...now go live your life and I will live mine.
You know TT..we all hear your hatred that you disguise as a moral ground you believe in. Your opinion is quite clear. It is a classic social interpretation that was used regarding racism, antisemitism, sexism, and other bigotry. You are just like previous people who had these beliefs. Tell me, are you prejudice towards the black community, Jews, and other bigotry that most societies now know is morally wrong and have changed the laws to protect against? Probably not..is my guess. As I stated before, the gay community will prevail like other previous prejudices. You keep your moral ground and we will hear you each time. Just know that anti-gay laws will also go by the wayside and the world will not collapse.
You know I'm real tired of people telling me to respect other people's anti-gay beliefs. How can I respect it when they don't respect gays and won't allow the same rights by exercising their voting choices? For them to tell everyone it's a choice to be gay is to say that they could chose it, too. Yet, most will say that wouldn't be natural for them. But, can't see that a gay person says the same thing about choosing to be straight. As we all have seen from the past, the black community had no respect for the white community because the white community, which had the power and voting rights, had no respect for them. Prejudice is Prejudice..Hate is Hate..and any loving religion never wanted that dogma.
It's futile to think that gay rights will halt and go no further. It's inevitable that equality will happen...just like all other equal rights such as abolishing slavery, women's right to vote, blacks right to vote, black and white's right to marry, etc...
