Super post Tony. Sad that his religion and cleaving to the bible made him ignorant. I asked a friend who is a born again Christian what she 'd do if she found out her son was gay, she said "I'd hate the sin, not the dinner"<quoted text>
Don't tell me what my religion is. You have no part between me and God.
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.
In a Southern drawl nonetheless, that Calvary Chapel sure churns out some shyt.
Apparently he forgot that interracial marriage was against the law. That documentary on Virginia vs. Lovings is really touching.
When the attorneys asked the Lovings if they wanted to come to the court, Mr. Loving said, no just tell them, I love my wife.
