So, at what age did you decide to be straight?
you mean at what age did i become attracted to the opposite sex???? probably around the same age everyone does.. puberty or thereabouts... you are wanting to but are not going to stump me with this question because we are viewing the answer to this question from two opposite point of views.. your opinion is that i think that i was "born" to be straight just as a homosexual is "born" to be homosexual.. and this is right in your eyes according to your belief.. my opinion is that i was created in God's image, born for the purpose to come to know him in the grace of Jesus Christ through faith and have fellowship with him, and serve him... and the NATURAL way of things, or how God intended it to be is for 1 man and 1 woman only to come together in a union, and not 2 of the same sex to come together.. see two different beliefs... two different beliefs but only one of us is right ya know... my evidence is what God says about homosexuality in his word... but see if you dont care what God says or dont believe what the bible says then that means nothing to you... there again 2 different opinions and sets of beliefs.. and especially if you believe in evolution and that we dont have an eternal soul??? therefore in your way of thinking morals are of no importance in our behaviour and we dont or shouldnt have to worry about giving an account for our choices so do what "feels" right... right??? isnt this the way of it for the homosexual, or anyone wanting to choose his own way???

In your post, you said that no one is born gay, bisexual, lesbian, etc....however do you have actual proof of that? Not the bible...since there is no evidence whatsoever that the bible is a true story...anyone with common sense knows that it's not. Additionally, you try to make the point that people that are gay, bisexual, lesbian etc. were not raised properly...and that is furthest from the truth. I was raised with 2 loving and strict parents, played an active part in church growing up and am very active in my community and host and take part in numerous civic and charitable events that support the community. So again, I ask you, when did you decide to be straight?

i never said anything about not being raised properly.. alot of people are "good" people and are upstanding and productive citizens never bringing harm to others and still may not know Jesus as thier saviour... many people attend church and have their name on the role, but never come to know Jesus.. that is very common... but it doesnt matter if you go to hell sliding of the pew or a bar stool.. you still go to hell for ONE reason and ONE reason only.. not trusting Jesus Christ as your personal saviour... people who do come from such backgrounds still may not have anyone that would know better to discourage homosexuality even if they are "good" people... alot of "good" folks think they're too good for hell.. what i mean by that is,,, if they believe just "do good to others and always be honest, and God will reward that" then they are mistaken... our goodness can never be enough.. we're none good no not one the bible says... but if you come from these type of good and loving people that only want you to be happy then of course you wont have them tell you otherwise.. you wont hear the truth from those who dont know it themselves... there again we have two different mindsets... i answered your question.. it's just that my answer isnt good enough for your reasoning... and it never will be until you yourself come to know the truth... i could ask you to prove the same thing ya know... prove that the bible is false, and that there is no God, and that i was born the way i am and that you were born the way you are... but you cant... you cant prove evolution either because there is no foolproof solid evidence of it... any scientist will tell you that...

It's hard to prove against something that's never been proven in the first place....there is no physical proof that there was a "god", there is no proof that the bible is nothing more than a book of make believe fairy tales..so therefore until you or anyone else can provide solid physical evidence there is no way for anyone else to proove otherwise. Furthermore, this thread is about 2 young men being able to attend the prom together at their private High School. Last time I checked, we have the seperation of church and state for a reason...keep your church out of our state....therefore your religious fairy tales play no part in this debate. Sorry...we're not hear to argue with you or any of your other pew warmers...period.

Prom is over and the boys had a great time...they are also still together in a loving, committed relationship. Funny, none of the teenagers at the prom had an issue with Jordan or Chase, in fact, one boy came up and shook Jordan's hand and said thank you. NC has a law that prohibits this type of discrimination in public school, you don't have to like it, but they are entitled to equal rights and equal treatment under the law. They are, after all, American's and entitled to the same rights as every other American in this country.

Deal with it! Or perhaps we should take away your freedom and see how you like it!

Also, when you only quote the part of the bible that says man laying with man is an abomination...and then go out in polyester to eat at Red Lobster, with your new spouse (cause you divorced the old one) while allowing your children to scream and cuss at you...you are proving exactly the type of hypocrite you really are.

Polyester is an abomination

Shell Fish is an abomination

Divorce is an abomination

And if your child curse at you, you are supposed to put them to death.

I do not believe in the bible or your god...I find it hard to believe in a god that would order the deaths of all the first born children because of something, someone else did.

I'm so happy to hear that Chase and Jordan are doing well! And I believe this was only an issue because some parents made it one. My 14 yr old daughter has friends that have confided in her to being gay/lesbian. She could care less. They are her friends and have been since kindergarten. The kids that do have a problem with it are likely repeating their parents! Good luck and bless you for being such a loving and supportive mother!

Easy.
"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you." Matthew 17:20

Where did you hear that crap? There is lots of solid evidence for evolution.
And it's easy to prove your god does not exist.

No Rose it didn't go over my head ; It's just not a very bright question when it's obvious that being gay means that you are involved with or want to be involved with the same sex , not the opposite sex ........ DUH !!!!! And I don't think he was even trying to make a point ; I think he was just trying to be a Smartypantz :)

Not true. The only unforgivable sin is to blaspheme the Holy Spirit.
