I agree its quite unnatural...bt be Cool Science is their....Common we r Living in 21st centuary...Its the time to think about mars and moon not to argue about person's own choice....
& if come to Scripture...In modern time...we dnt obey its each & every rules.....then Why??why for the sake of scriptures,religions etc...we will torture them...
Hmm Every single person on the earth has different choice...Likes & dislikes of people are not same...Everyone has rights to select his or her partner...it doesnot necessary for anyone to choose partner of opposite gender....Lets them choose of their choice...its the matter of their rights
depending how u look at it. personally I'm not here to cast the first stone. but when religion enters(it hasn't yet if ever) the gay marriage I will say the Bible is directly agaisnt it. so for our religion it can't happen but not ones outside ours. I will also say I don't hate gays. I actually love them. we all have sin in our lives. I refuse to cast the first stone. I rather would offer my hand.
illness is something that affects your ability to function physically or mentally. the only suffering gays go through is social caused by haters.
a person can have every pathogen or malady in the world present in his body, of his function is somehow unaffected, he is not ill. gay people function perfectly fine. hold jobs, have relationships, pay taxes, and in accepting areas, lead happy lives. that is the definition of health.
also gender issues have nothing to do with homosexuality. gays are more than comfortable with their gender. indeed they love their gender!
Can you provide evidence that homosexuality is a "mental illness"?
If you can't, would you be open to re-evaluating your position given the fact that the W.H.O along with numerous psychology and psychiatry journals are in direct conflict with your statement?
If you are unwilling to accept science/medicine as evidence against/negation of your position aren't you simply being bias in the face of opposing evidence?
This is inhuman. For years we have gone to war, to fight against slavery, and human rights, and then we come back to the US or UK or France or whatever, and tell people that they can only marry who they're nabours will accept.
its almost what we fight against!!
Society should not encourage, promote and normalize mental illnesses. that gives us the gender problems we have today.
i say it should not be allowed.
do I refuse to support the gay movement? yes
does this mean I hate gays? no
I find it odd that an unmarried man spends so much time trying to convince other men that they are gay. I have yet to see any arguments that would show that historybuff is gay, so I'm curious why you want him to be.
he'd not gay and most people are perfectly happy with one.
You lie because you hate 4 wives and want men instead.
I can't find any evidence that this actually happened, let alone happened the way he said it did. it only appears on fox news and that guy's website. until you can provide reputable evidence I'm just going to say that's bullshit.
it's a famous quote.
the real American Christians are the churches that meet refugees at the airports, invite them into their homes and help them start their new life. often with their personal money, not a government grant, definitely not from this administration.
I'm OK with "America first" too a certain extent, but that does not fit with christianity. jesus did not preach me, myself, and I. he preached all, and everyone. universal love. Real Christians are on the left.
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me-
and there was no one left to speak for me.
I feel that the right wing base has drank the scapegoat Kool aid. they agree with the anti lbgt, migrant, and Muslim comments. many are even attacking other nonmentioned groups (jews, blacks, hindus). as long as he is taking care of their rights and their religion they will be happy. they will only rebel when the lies affect their economic interests.
I had hoped he would do better and personify his good traits and surround himself with good people. he has done the opposite.
fair enough with legislation but do they not need the people to support whatever they do? or get fired fast. though trolls are everywhere and should be ignored.
and gender. not transgender or weird gender. regular old female gender seems to be an issue with him.
federal and state legislatures are threatening.
I can cite right wing media and Internet trolls as well, but I feel that elected representatives with actual power is much more damning.
Trump has been relatively lbgt friendly. it's the race and religions that he seems to have a problem with.
by who Trump? honestly Trump's to busy messing up the presidintsy to care.
but they are trying to take them away, like the right to get married in a non religious city hall ceremony and the right to not be discriminated against when they shop, rent, or apply for work.
your case that their rights are fine and not threatened is 100% false.
I apologize. this came off as a rage but it's just an annoyance than anything. I believe these things still but I wanted to be clearer.
? in the Christian religion it's sin so technically not there but then again Jesus had surrounded himself with sinners so I have no problem being around them but I treat it like other sins. if u mean in the USA I personally am getting tired of seeing these kinds of things everywhere. u already have ur rights. no one is going to take them away. then on social media that's all that gay people post which is annoying since no one thing can define a person and they get mad when someone disagrees.
who would disagree with this? are you advocating for criminalizing being gay?
why should it not be allowed?
