Why it's okay to think being gay is wrong...

[deleted account] ( 15 moms have responded )

Do you think that people should be allowed to express an opinion that is controversial ?
Is it okay to state and defend what you believe in?
Do you think that everybody should have the right to agree to disagree in a civilized manner w/o beating each other down.
You don't have to agree, In fact, freedom is the right to choose.
What should people do in the case of controversy though? When you have two minorities battling to the end over an issue like sexual rights. 'Both' think they are merited.
Homosexuals do not want the hetros raining on their parade, but do they realize in order for this 'not' to happen, the Judeo based heterosexuals will have their rights trampled?
So...the best thing is to start hate crimes against religious freedoms? Really ?
Yes, try to hang on to a pure family logic, but the bible tells us that things are going to get worse and the nations that forget God would be turned into hell ...(Sounds like God was not too happy about being forgotten)
To attack a persons moral beliefs is to tear at the fabric of society. After all these same Christians that are so against homosexual tendencies are the same people who speared laws that protect society like the morals of thou shalt not kill, steal, covet someone else's wife etc....Seems like they knew something and weren't that daft...
How is attacking Christians any different than attacking Jews during the holocaust?

This is not a war against individuals but rather a move against what God says.

'He' says those things are wrong that it is an un natural affection,
...how a person can argue with a living God and win?
He also tells us that in the last days things would be like when Noah was around, so as Christians there should not be a lot of not be shock that it happens.
That is what God said... He said it was unnatural.
Arguing with a living God is an exercise in futility...

Freedom of religion also means freedom FROM religion.

Please note, YOU in this post refers to the general you and not necessarily to any particular individual.

I believe that it's perfectly acceptable for YOU to think that being gay is wrong just like it's perfectly acceptable for ME to disagree. What's not okay is to attempt to impose your beliefs on someone else.

You are not required to support gay rights, but it is not acceptable to prevent those people from having rights. Just like you don't have to support interracial marriage, it is not okay for you to remove the rights of someone who wants to marry inter-racially. If you don't support gay marriage, don't get one.

I don't know. How is it okay to attack someone's beliefs about how being gay IS ok? That's exactly what is happening. Ever read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights? It's actually not okay to discriminate against someone because of their sexuality - that's a form of attack.

"To attack a persons moral beliefs is to tear at the fabric of society."

So stop attacking homosexuals and discriminating against them for their beliefs and needs. It goes both ways.

I don't believe in God so in my opinion, that is not relevant. I respect your right to have that view but I don't subscribe to it and therefore, any justification "in God's name" is irrelevant to me.

As far as I am concerned, someone's sexuality is their own business. I don't justify / talk / debate my sex life with anyone. Why should anyone else have to so long as it is between consenting adults.

I don't define myself by my sexuality. I don't see why anyone else should have to.

Once upon a time, people who were black were considered to be intellectually inferior. This was a commonly help belief which the vast majority of people now think is bizarre and abhorrent. It held back generations and generations of people from contributing to society and their youth was spent fighting to break free of stigma and poverty. If the "majority" hadn't felt like that and the black youth hadn't had to fight against oppression, imagine what positive contribution they could have made to society?

That young black activist who had to spend years fighting for the right to attend university or receive equal pay, could have spent that time hunting for a cure for cancer, or developing strategies for teaching maths...

It's about time we freed people from stigma and bigotry for the benefit of us all.

Everyone is entitled to their own belief. Whether or not they are right. They have the right to express it in a calm and civilized way. People are prideful and many get insulted if another person has a different view and also expresses it.

I am a person who believes that homosexuality is perfectly normal and not controversial at all. My thought is, "How does it affect me?". And the answer is, it doesn't. Not one bit. It does not affect my choices, my moral standing, not my ideals.

Do some people hate? Of course! And some may be overzealous with it. And will attack, physically and verbally. And, to me, those are the people who are wrong. Not the ones who have a different opinion but are civilized about it. Attacking is the morally and lawfully wrong thing to do.

Actually, I didn't attack your belief. I asked how it was okay to attack others who believe being gay IS ok. How is it okay to write a post like you have and then expect people not to feel that you are intolerant and judgmental. I certainly didn't attack you or your belief. I simply disagree with it. That's different. You proved no point at all.

I actually believe you are perfectly entitled to believe what you want. What I DON'T accept is you imposing your beliefs on others. So until the law allows gay people to marry, that is exactly what is happening. Gay marriage doesn't have any impact on you (or any other person) in any way, shape or form, so why should your belief be impacting others rights?

And look at that, cancelled account. Some people really need to put on their big girl panties if they are going to raise big girl issues.

And you have your religious freedoms. You can believe what you want. I can believe what I want. But you and I cannot impose those beliefs on others. By having a law preventing gay marriage, you are imposing your beliefs on others who do not believe the same as you. So how is that religious freedoms? Religious freedoms do NOT extend to forcing others to live by YOUR religious beliefs.

This post was a test... To show if you believe a certain way, how your right to say so is coming under attack. Thank you for your response. It helped prove the point.

Do you not think that your post is intolerant and judgmental? You can give it but can't take it? Is that it?

Someone elses sexual preferences have nothing to do with another persons religious beliefs. And not everyone believes in the same "God". Why should someone elses religious beliefs trample upon someone elses life??? Why just because you are Christian, do IIIIII have to think being gay is wrong? How does that work? If that is your belief, fine.....but it does not delegate how others believe or feel. PERIOD. Also, I know PLENTY of Christians, Catholics etc that DO NOT feel that being gay is wrong or some sort of abomination towards God.

Think of it this way....If GOD made the world and everything in it and controls all, then that means he/she made people of all walks of life for a reason....be it gay, straight, or whatever religious beliefs there are, and colors of skin. So if it is wrong, any of it, then your God messed up making people. How does that work? maybe the test is on all of you that think being gay or different is wrong....and not the people that are all for it. Maybe those like YOU with such a huge intolerance towards others are the ones being judge, not those that are gay.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but how is advocating for marriage equality a "hate crime against religious freedom"? How, precisely, are YOUR rights being trampled? You are not being forced into a homosexual relationship. You are not being forced to change your views or beliefs on homosexuality. The only thing you are "losing" is the ability to dictate how others live their life. This was misplaced ability to begin with, and was never your "right" in the first place.

We could argue the Christian god's "view" on homosexuality, and YOUR interpretation of the Bible. You seem to be under the false impression that all Christians share your belief that homosexuality is a sin, or "unnatural". There are many Christians of varying denominations, that do not share this belief. However, even this argument is pretty pointless. One of the main tenants of Christianity is that god gives all free will. This means that all of "his children" have the freedom to choose to follow his law - or not. The repercussions of said choice will be faced by each individual at the time of their death - not by their fellow man.

I do not know where you are from, but I live in America. My country is one that was founded on freedom of religion. This means that I can chose to live my life according to my own religious beliefs (or lack thereof). It means that I am guaranteed the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It does NOT mean that I, or others, are subject to any type of restraint or restrictions that are based on another's religious beliefs. It does not mean that your god or religion have the power to dictate another's personal choices that have absolutely no bearing on you.
