Keep in mind that not agreeing with the lifestyle they have chosen to live is NOT an attack. But I agree 100%
I think that the post seems to be more about ‘christians’ bashing gays, not people who have made a choice about their lifestyle (eg obese, religious, team supporter etc).
And I’m saying that just because I don’t agree with the lifestyle a person may have chosen to live out is NOT an attack/bashing on that person.
And I’m just saying that referring to Homosexuality as a lifestyle choice IS an attack on that person, unless you are of the opinion that we are all fundamentally bisexual, in which case I apologise.
I’m sorry you feel that way.
Of course it is. Sexuality of any type isn’t a “lifestyle”. It is a life. When you attack the core of a person’s being, you are attacking that person. So get off your high horse and stop being a dick.
The core? Since when is a person’s sexual preference the core of their existence? That’s ridiculous.
Yes it is. It’s like racism. Maybe you don’t think it’s right to kill every black person, but you think it’s ok to make them feel unwelcome. You’re a NIMBY, not in my backyard. Where do you expect these people to live? If it’s ok to make them feel unwelcome, it’s ok to deny them service ie. food, lodging, work. So they’ll just gtfo right? You think one of your fellow anti-gay people is willing to beat or kill them, of course they are. And you have given your tacit approval, you have helped create a space where they are marginalized and unsafe.
What are you babbling about? Make them feel unwelcome? Kill them? Are you insane?
I was talking about people MURDERING gay people, which is indeed happening, and how intolerance is a slippery slope.
But I’m sorry you lack the cognitive acuity to understand my comment. I thought I had used simple enough language that a stupid animal could follow my reasoning. Obviously I was wrong. My apologies.
No one said anything about making them feel unwelcome or murdering them. That is NOT loving. All I said was I don’t agree that homosexuality is okay. I’m not bashing anyone. I’m not killing someone. I’m merely saying I disagree. However, in your warped and twisted mind that equates to, “Murder the gays.” You’re ridiculous.
You don’t love them. You’re ridiculous if you think you are making the world a better place with your disapproval and lack of understanding. You’re ridiculous if you think if you think you don’t support a culture of oppression.
If you say so.
Please enlighten me, what exactly do you mean with “the lifestyle they have chosen to live”?
What are you not understanding?
Well, if by “they” you mean -for example- promiscuous people, or couples that have sex before marriage, or people with tattoos, I agree with you, since that is a “chosen lifestyle”, being gay is not.
Just because they haven’t chosen it doesn’t means it’s any less repulsive, disgusting, wrong and unnatural and that we should just “love” and “accept” them. Am I also supposed to go about “loving” people with leprosy? What, why not, it’s not their fault, right?
Wow. You wouldn’t happen to be from the Southeast would you?
No. I’m not even from America. Oh? I’m sorry? Did you think all intolerant people come from same place? Nope. We’re all around the world. Did you probably think we’re all religious as well? Nope. I’m an atheist for example.
Easy there Luke, you don’t have to use the force.
But Obiwan always tells me to!
I will just assume you are a troll or a despicable, negligible individual. So either way, I will not play along with your retarded nonsense. Have a good one 🙂
“His opinion and views on things are different from mine, hence he’s a troll or a horrible individual!”
You, sir or whatever, are a fucking retard. Goodbye.
His name is an anagram of “Fine TV Clown.”
TV stands for television or transvestite. I think the choice here is obvious.
I’m just sayin’.
So you’re forced to be either gay or straight?
“Forced”? You are born like that man. There are also bisexuals and transgender people out there, for example. But I was just pointing out that it is not a choice. People should know this by now.
You may be born with your preference. But it’s your choice whether to heed that preference or go against the grain.
Yes well basically it comes down to “live and die miserable hiding your preference or just… don’t”. If you are a heterosexual male, try to “choose” being with other men for the rest of your life and see how fulfilling that is.
And if I wanted to do that, that would be the choice I make.
But under what circumstances would someone in their sane mind “want” to go against their preference? Not to mention the simplest issue involving the male’s body biological response to arousal i.e. getting an erection xD
They’re sick and tired of how the opposite gender treats them? So they want to go in a different direction? I know of a girl who was raped and due to the traumatic experience never wanted to be with a guy but still wanted to feel wanted and the comfort of another person.
I am sorry for that girl, one should not generalize an entire gender based on how some individuals treated you, and until now I thought nobody did. If she is a heterosexual female who lost trust in men after a traumatic experience, she should seek psychological help in order to gain that trust, otherwise I think she will never feel fulfilled. Based on what you said, she did not “want” to be with women, she was “forced”. And not forced into becoming a lesbian, but into being with someone of your same sex despite her preference for men. But that is just my humble opinion. No psychologist here.
We were great friends she just felt that experience was a sign that she was meant to be gay. She had no desire to seek treatment as she felt there was nothing wrong. She said it was a choice she made and she felt fine with it.
But trying to have sex with someone who not of ones preferred gender would go against the grain for that person. I sure don’t want to have sex with some man pretending to want me and most women don’t want that. Do you want to have sex with a woman who finds your body distasteful? Because that’s what used to happen.
By against the grain you mean against the grain of you and the privileged majority. Why can’t people like you just accept that some people are born different, that it’s no big deal, and that it doesn’t affect them?
Personally, I believe that being gay IS something you are born with, just like being transgender. I think that when the world was filled with sin, it was also filled with other problems and hard times, such as incurable diseases. I think a lot more about transgender issues than others (one of my best friends is transgender), so here’s my example. I think that transgender people have the brain of one gender and the body of another. And I think that people would not have been born that way if there wasn’t sin. Just like people wouldn’t be born with Down’s syndrome, or autism, or even bad eyesight. When it comes to gay people, I think some people are born being attracted to the same gender, which is not “normal” simply in the sense that that’s not how our bodies are created. Men and women’s sexual parts fit together naturally. But it’s certainly not their fault that they are born that way.
No idea if it’s true, but just throwing my opinion out there.
Of course the bible isn’t used to attack people, that why we have this!
knowing christians, they’d say that being mean to gays is love, since they want them to find god
You mustn’t know many actual Christians then.
luckily no, but the ones i watch argue on youtube would claim that you are the pretender
everyone has their stupid idea of what the true religion is, and they cant even agree on it under the same roof, with the same icon stuck to the top of it
atleast they try to follow their book, you just have yours on life support, dragging that dead horse to the wrong side of this millennia
no true scotsman
And there you go making assumptions about people you’ve never met – and you know what they say about assumptions, don’t you?
Meanwhile, I think I hear some billy goats trip-trapping over your bridge.
it must be easy to wipe everything under the rug as soon as it conflicts with your world view
the rest of us need to actually confront these people every day
i’m sure you’d run into this shit if you pulled your head out of your ass and lurked a bit more
the religious weirdo’s are all around us
I don’t know, is it?
“Need to confront”? Why, because their world views differ from your own? As for religious weirdos being all around us, I haven’t experienced it myself, at least not in my neck of the woods – they’re there but not all around us. I’ve met religious people who aren’t weird, and non-religious people who are – the weirdo bit seems to be the bit that sticks out, not the religion or lack of. Maybe that’s what happens when you take your head out of your arse and actually get out of the house.
they very much effect all our lives
even though i live across the seas
if you’ve seen the asinine shit they’re trying to push in america, you’d understand
i fight misinformation wherever i find it
you dont need to be a weirdo for me to despise you
it’s enough that you keep fueling the fire by claiming to believe
you may think that christians dont act that way, but it’s either the science denying extremists, or the enablers like you that keep these people from finding the medical help they need
if you think that this doesn’t apply to those around you then good for you, but dont get butthurt over me criticizing the most dominant sect of the day
re evaluate your life please
You do make a cogent point about the extremists, but if they don’t adhere to the fundamental principles of “love thy neighbour” and “do unto others…” (i.e. treat people with kindness and respect) then they’re not the real deal. I should qualify my standpoint by saying that I’m Australian, and the full-on religiosity that America has become notorious for is not much of a thing in Australia – the “religious weirdos” are a very small minority here, and general fervour about religion isn’t a thing – you believe, you don’t believe, you’re undecided, whatever, if you’re the typical Australian you know you’ll stick out like a sore thumb if you’re out in the street preaching your beliefs. In my experience mainstream Christians (Catholic and Protestant) tend to be more interested in helping people and conducting themselves with compassion and integrity, and if you want to worship with them they tend to be welcoming and accommodating, but if it’s not your bag they tend not to push it. Unfortunately, like with a lot of groups there are the odd bad apples in the barrel. I’ve known quite a few atheists who were good people, their atheism being where the similarities end with the likes of Stalin or Mao or Pol Pot.
Like you, I have an aversion to misinformation, hence my speaking up in the first place.
they justify any atrocity by just saying it’s good for the victim
I actually can’t even understand if you’re lambasting weirdo religious people who are anti-gay or homosexuals.
You base your opinions on what people say on YouTube? Holy shit! You have a lot to learn, kiddo.
you condescending sack of fuck
the youtube scene is very much representative of todays christian zeitgeist
it’s the only relevant part
youtube is a megaphone that alot of crazies reach for
and quite frankly, if you dont subscribe to the crazy shit, you dont really even qualify as a christian
you are like any other new age spiritualists, you just decided to keep the name to avoid alienating your family
when i went to america, i met alot of sweet christians, but they irk me even more than the crazies
no one is denying they exist, i’m just saying that they are even worse
if these sweet wholesome housewives didnt exist, fox news would go bankrupt and the fundamentalists would stick out like sore thumbs
hopefully that answers your question
which you made none of
since you skipped straight to the insulting part
Hateful little wretch, aren’t you?
*grabs popcorn* I’m just here for the comments.
