Six Things Straight People Should Stop Saying about Gay People

Jul 28, 2013 | Posted by: DNF | Full story: canyonwalkerconnections.com

A kind woman, who would never intentionally offend another person, writes: “I love gay people, I just cannot support their gay lifestyle.”

A pastor stands holding an electric cord as a prop and warns the congregation, “Don’t mess with God’s original design. Gay sex is not natural, the parts don’t fit.”

A man thinks he needs to “protect” his family from his Christian gay brother. He says to his brother, “Homosexuality is a perversion and, until you change, I cannot allow you in my home with my children.”

Parents send their lesbian daughter to a program that they heard about at church. The visiting speaker says he is no longer gay. The encouraged parents say, “We want what is best for our daughter and we know she can change her preferences.”

About their fellow Americans, some will say: “I don’t mind gay people having civil unions, I just do not want to redefine marriage. Marriage is not a civil right and they want special rights.”

Thinking they are pleasing and even defending God, moderate Christians assert: “I’m fine with gay people getting together, it’s God and the Bible that are clearly against homosexuality. We love gay people and need to tell them the truth.”

Ear infection? What, are you 11?

Maybe all that long hair grease is oozing into your ears at night. Time for a hair cut.

Gay/Bisexual/Transgender

Whatever you call them they're Human beings too.
They do not ask for it. They do not choose to feel that way. They're just unfortunate to be different. They're suffering inside, always seeking acceptance by this cruel world. Afraid to be humiliated, mistreated and disrespected.

But like any other Normal person, they can give Love too. Some may be too martyr not expecting anything in return cause that's how they know Love.

They're fun to be with, most of them have Positive views in Life.
It's not hard to Love them for they're Beautiful person inside and out.

They may need preach from time to time but do not force them change cause
People do not change overnight. As they grow older they will learn from they're mistakes and Eventually it will lead them in the right path.

I still believe in the sacredness of the church. still not convinced of same sex marriage. However if the law allowed them, then so be it.

In the eyes of God all is fair and equal. No sin are Big or Small.

Just let them live.

As a straight person, I certainly have a lifestyle as well as a life. Can't for the life of me figure out why it offends gays so much that people say they have a lifestyle. Frankly, everyone does.
True, but do people say you are living the heterosexual lifestyle? Everyone has a lifestyle and it isn't necessarily determined by their sexuality or sexual orientation. Gays and lesbians have just as diverse interests as heterosexual people do.

I just was on a thread about churches in Kentucky that are kicking out the Boy Scouts since they started accepting gay boys.

In a response to someone who was going on and on about how evil we were, I quoted a scripture from the Bible.

Someone actually voted it spam!

A Bible verse quote on a church thread is spam? Only because it showed that what they were trying to claim is contradictory to passages I found in the Bible.

You may want to start reading the Bible more. There's no get out of jail free card when it comes to Matt. 25:31-46.

To paraphrase the words of Hulk Hogan "whatcha gonna do when Judge -O -mania runs wild on you?”

Matthew 25:31-46
The Sheep and the Goats
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right,‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him,‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply,‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left,‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44 “They also will answer,‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45 “He will reply,‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
