I don't think there is any argument that justifies any prejudice or discrimination against it which can't be shown to be wrong.

With so many trees in the city you could see the spring coming each day until a night of warm wind would bring it suddenly in one morning. Sometimes the heavy cold rains would beat it back so that it would seem that it would never come and that you were losing a season out of your life. But you knew that there would always be the spring as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person had died for no reason. In those days though the spring always came finally but it was frightening that it had nearly failed.

I don't think it's anyone's place here to condemn someone's innate feeling for someone else.

I used to be a Chrisitian, and I will never homosexuality as a choice for my own sexuality, but one of the reasons I stopped being a Christian (not the only one, don't worry) is because of the discrimination against homosexuals in the Christian community. Sure, if people ask you, let them know your beliefs, but if they don't want to know, butt the hell out.

Basically I get really frustrated with anyone who discriminates against gays. I could never be attracted to a man, but if people are attracted to people from the same sex as them, it's their business.

Just a note, I believe homosexuality is a choice.




Same here I used to be a Christian but then I realised that there cannot be a God because he isn't fair on some people. And as you mentioned I got sick of Christians discriminating homosexuals.





MOT: I think homosexuality is acceptable, they aren't hurting you, all they are trying to do is live a happy life like everyone else.

There are documented cases of homosexual animals, and show me where in the bible that it says two men or women can't be together and truly love each other.


There is a passage somewhere, and though I can't be bothered to dig for the exact reference now, it goes something like: "Let no man lie with another man, and no woman lie with a beast."



It doesn't specifically forbid girl-on-girl...


What do you think da Pope and Jesus used to release thier pleasures? :lol:



No matter how you see it, homosexuals shouldn't be discriminated.



If it's a choice, then respect their opinion. We don't see people hating people who like Wild Hogs instead of Norbit, or pasta instead of pizza. Its just immature to insult people's opinions.



If you're born with it, then don't discriminate them. Do we discriminate handicapped people? Mentally ill people? No, then why should we do on homosexuals.

Yes i think it's wrong, disgusting etc. but it's their choice. I'm not against it but i hate it. I think people are gay/[bleep] because-



1. They want attention. :roll:



2. They can't get love from the opposite gender.



3. They feel like it.



4. They're not a christian.




You are so wrong on all your 'points' but one (for me).



I'm bisexual, and guess what? No one in real life knows. How is that craving attention?



I feel like it? OK, I woke up when I was young and went 'OK, I'll be bi for the rest of my life!'



I'm not Christian? You're right on that one.

Forum Brutality ftw? :roll:



So many people just running around insulting each others views with "i'm intelligent" sticky notes attached to their heads.



Its funny you guys say not to discrimate homosexuality (and I agree) but you certainly believe in deiscrimating someone elses view.



I'm christian, Homosexuality in my eyes is wrong, and no i'm not ignorant to the facts you guys present and still maintain the same view.



You guys should really lay off the soda.. -.-

Gosh calm down i edited my post.


Not like editing your post is going to change your opinion on this.



Please, read warri0r's post on the science of the matter. I'd go into the ehthical points about people killing themselves over being homosexual, or being killed for being homosexual, but if you can't accept the clear hard data and facts, you definitely won't accept any anecdotes about homosexuals suffering for their sexual preference that I have to show you.



Defender, there's nothing wrong with "discriminating against someone's personal view" if that personal view is blatantly and pathetically wrong. If we didn't, no one would ever learn anything, you know? Whether it's nature or nurture, people come to have a set sexual preference before they're consciously able to choose it.



Though, what are your reasons for finding homosexuality "wrong", other than your religion?

Being the devils advocate, who would decide that? This is only a forum. And second, isn't discrimating anything in itself wrong?



Well I got to get back to work, be back later on tonight..

I believe it's a brain disorder, and they have no choice over it. however, they can control who they have intercourse with. But frankly, I dont really care if people are gay or not. As long as they dont put the moves on me.

Homosexuality is not a choice.

True. I believe it's a combination of a hormone and a brain disorder, or something of the likes.



With the above stated, I have absolutely nothing against homosexuals and I believe that they deserve to be treated exactly the same way as you would like to be treated. And finally, all you discriminists can burn painfully for or I care (no offence to any of you religious people).

They're born like that, it's inherent, even when they are little children, a lot before they can consciously make that choice, they are different from the other children: likes/dislikes, voice, facial expression, etc. Besides, there is absolutely no logical basis to say that homosexuality is a bad thing, it has existed since a long time in human history. The christian Church doesn't like it, I don't know why, but whatever reason it is, it is not a reasonable, logical reason, it's pure intolerance.

There's nothing wrong with it, it's not their fault they are gay, I bet many of males here have watched lesbian porn before and continue watching it, it's the same thing as gay porn except gay porn includes 2 men instead of 2 women, I know at least one of you will say something like "but watching girls do it is not disgusting and watching men do it is" so I'll answer right away: It's disgusting for you to watch 2 men making out because you are a straight male, it's programmed into you since birth. I know many girls who enjoy gay porn but think lesbian porn is disgusting.

I hope you get my point and I also hope my post isn't too explicit.





Edit: Why is Lesbian (girl that likes another girl) censored but gay isn't ?

Why do all controversial topics end up with flames? Can't we simply respect each other and our own preferences and thoughts?



I, in my personal opinion, think that homosexuals are born that way. It'd make no sense if they decided on something that most people discriminate. Also, two males making out in a park/having sexual relationships/getting married. Are they harming anyone? Nope. then why should I hold a grudge against them?

Secondly, there's nothing immoral in being homosexual. It's immoral if you steal, it's immoral if you rape, it's immoral if you cheat on your wife, (in general, it's immoral to harm other being), it's not immoral to be in a loving relationship, be it homo- or heterosexual.

While I do believe in God as a higher power, I don't follow any set of doctrines like the Catholic one, and I don't believe in Him being creating the homosexuals as they are, yet sending them to hell for acting as they are supposed to.



Also, just so you know, AIDS is more likely to happen between promiscuous heterosexuals than two homosexuals that don't cheat to each other.



(Just for the record, I'm a straight guy)
[Edit] Lol, I'm gay actually.And I don't reallly believe in God any more.

Personally i don't agree with the concept, i believe homosexuality to be immoral but that doesn't mean i'd have the right to say people shouldn't be gay. I don't believe people are born gay, i think they choose it as a lifestyle coming out of their upbringing, if you didn't want someone to turn out that way i think it could be stopped.



I could come out with the "its against human nature because humans are meant to keep the human race going" but in a world of gang violence, a bias media and immigrants overunning our countries being gay isn't something i'm strongly against.

Wikipedia it, not all homosexuals are born that way, a lot of them develop through upbringing and psychological experiences. But there are theories that some people are simply born that way as well.

Whatever it is, it's an unconcious choice or you're born with it.

Well to be honest, why would someone choose to be a homosexual anyway? They're subject to a lot of discrimination, so why would they willingly put themselves in that? :|



It just comes through being born that way or your upbringing. :-k
