Don't tell me what my religion is. You have no part between me and God.<quoted text> First off by the way you speak, you're a Christian. Well that alone makes you the living example of o an immoral hypocrite. Your religion clearly states man should not lay with man so like I said you can lay with who you want, but no one should have to change laws to suit your feelings & emotions. The law shares sides with you religion, but your willing to rewrite the law & religion to soothe your sexual preference. Now who's the real hypocrite? Even if we don't go off the religion angle, you know in your heart that it's morally wrong! It defeats the whole purpose of reproduction. If you honestly aren't looking for validation, what's the big deal? As the law stands your still gay, ago it doesn't even matter. You not only want to rewrite the laws & the Bible, but the Webster dictionary definition of marriage! Now like I said,"I could care less if they pass the law or not, honestly! But what you won't do is feed me that crap about you not needing a sense to feel normal, cuz that's all it is is validation from your fellow man. I don't gay bash, look at you funny, or try to avoid you, but I teach my kids about you when I'm teaching the rights & wrongs in life. I don't think of you as less of a person, just a person in crisis & someone instead of adapting to the world, your trying to make the world adapt to you.
I am neither immoral, nor a hypocrite. You are a hypocrite if you claim to believe in America, yet still think it is appropriate to discriminate against fellow citizens. I would consider that immoral as well.
Why do you think so many people who have gay family members or get to know gay people change their minds about gay people? Because the myth is busted. My Grandma is in her late 80's. When I came out to her, probably about 16 years ago or so, she didn't miss a beat - because SHE KNEW ME WELL. She knew that her "goody goody" grandson was not an immoral person and therefore the lie that being gay is immoral did not wash. You can't just be immoral in one way. You either are or you aren't. You either draw boundaries in your behavior or you don't. I'll put my morality up against anybody's, any day.
I already know I am normal. I don't need the consensus of the dumbed-down American public to validate that. I do demand the law correct the situation, however. That's not optional.
You get zero points for not gay-bashing. That's expected. That's basic.
I am not a person in crisis, you judgmental, ignorant f**k. I was "in crisis" when I was 12 years old listening to crap like you spew and wondering "what I did to deserve this." Let me tell you, pal, if I chose to be gay, I would absolutely say so. In fact, I would say it IN YOUR FACE and then continue to demand equality under the law. Choice or not has no bearing on this. However, the boring fact is not only did I not choose to be gay, but I tried everything to avoid facing that fact. THAT was when I was furthest from God - when I didn't trust the way He made me and fought against it for over a dozen years. It was the ONE area of my life where I didn't pray for "thy will be done" - I prayed for MY will be done, because as a 12 year old kid who didn't know any better, all I wanted was to be straight. So this was not somebody trying to stop a behavior or a habit or an addiction like you stupid people like to assume. This was an innocent, model 12 year old kid, suddenly thrust into a terrifying (at the time) scenario.
Thank God I had the presence of mind, and His help, to navigate that and come through it level-headed. That was in my early 20's. I'm now 41, quite settled, quite content, and quite grateful to God for my life and my husband.
However, I DO think less of you, for who you are.
