I'm a christian, and I don't agree with someone shoving beliefs on anyone, and it's not our right to judge. And I don't agree with most christians view on gays. I agree with you. Surprised? :)
Go get them tiger.
oh, i am so with you, gypsymae..<br />
who are we to judge what is normal..? live, and let live, and let the goodness of all shine thru..
Thank you for a responsible reply.
Interesting ideas and comments. Of course...No Judgment going on here.
Thanks for YOUR support gypsymae. So glad you are out there NOT hating and judging!!
A nice reply and I thank you, as does gypsymae.
I agree Gypsy
Yes, you are right and judging people are all wrong.<br />
But beware lest we are also judging them.
Correctly stated: do not judge those whom would judge you.
| agree. When one has one's own religion ---- keep it to yourself and don't "shove it down other peoples' throats". It's disrectful and un-called for.<br />
It's called proselytism and is performed by those who want you to be just like they.<br />
We all have our own faiths, which we're comfortable with --- and don't need nor appreciate anyone's shoveling "their" brand of religion down our collective throats. Very disrespectful.<br />
And --- there is nothing "wrong" with being gay or bi-sexual. It is a natural ex<x>pression of the human equation as we know it ----- and religion should stay away from those whom were given a different path in life to follow.<br />
You have a religion that YOU believe in? Fine ---- keep it to yourself. You don't like "gays"? Fine --- then go back to the 15th Century, where you belong.
i kno exactly where you coming from.. =)
i kno... thats why i said i kno where u comin from...jajajaja ... but im glad you were honest/
We all know --- and thank you.
Thank you for addressing the author of this post. I agree with you, as does she.
Don't lose your head over someone elses ignorance. A christian who believes God made us all, doesn't that imply he made some gay? :)
I like your reply and couldn't agree more. It is, after all, God who made all of us --- and that certainly includes Gays.
Atheists do the same thing to religious people too and atheism is a religion in and of itself. There are plenty of religious chuch going people that are denying their sexuality too (repression) and they're doing nothing but hurting themselves. <br />
Save yor breath and energy.
A wonerful insight into the workings of the minds of those who purport to be "religious" ---- yet deny their sexuality. Well said.
I like your reply and agree with it --- not that it matters or anyone cares ---- you stated it well.
Right on gypsymae, The bible does say:<br />
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your PEARLS before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.<br />
I hope Christians get the point if they already been told leave it at that, atleast they were warned regaurdless if they dont believe! God will save those He will save and those He doesnt He will cast in the dump! which is commonly refered to as hell then the lake of fire.
A nice religious reply, which I'm familiar with. Well said and I thank you for accommodating our "host". And you stand correct: "God will save those whom HE will save and those whom HE doesn't". It is those of us --- the disenfranchised, the lepers, the homosexuals, the blind, the infirm, the sick; it is those whom God will "save" and welcome unto the Gates of Paradise. You know --- a place where the poiticians, the lawyers, homophobics and Republicans will never see.
Completely agree with you entirely here and well said. But the fact is people do that and it's going to continue. I think if we can focus on what is right, we can learn to just ignore those with invasive dogma. It's not the obligation of the receiving party to give the imposing party a lesson in proper civil behavior. It's the responsibility of the imposing party to behave like a grown adult, even though they think they're doing the "righteous" thing. <br />
Good question and note the large amount of replies! Thanks for speaking up.
"Invasive dogma". Well said. Articulate, responsible and goes to the heart of the matter.
I didn't shove them down anyone's throat.... thisisnolongerfun will back me up......<br />
BUT...... saying that gay is unnatural isn't a religious thing.... my brother doesn't believe in God, but he believes gay is unnatural..... my other brother IS gay (like flaming, really.... it's awesome!) and even he thinks it's unnatural..... but then.... most of what we eat is unnatural.... everything we put on our bodies and in our hair is unnatural..... flying is unnatural for humans.... computers are the epitome of unnatural...... doesn't make it WRONG....<br />
judgmental religious people don't say it's unnatural, they say it's morally wrong..... HOWEVER.... a religious person who practices what they preach would not judge you for being gay or bi or anything else....<br />
My education was that a penis fits into a vagina and anal sex, unless undertaken with planning and precautions can be hazardous to your health. I'm NOT saying it is WRONG, however sex is, at its most basic, only a reproduction process for the survival of the species. In terms of RAW NATURE, survival is DEPENDENT on opposite sex couplings. This is a LAW of NATURE not man. Two human women can have a baby together via artificial insemination. This is NOT the way of NATURE (i.e. "natural") Even adoption, though it does happen in the wild as well as the "civilized" world is not reproducing a biological offspring. If everybody adopted and never birthed, the species would die. I mean, maybe I'm wrong, but that's what they taught ME in my science classes in school. And do I think animals "choose" a "LIFESTYLE?" No, of course not, don't be ridiculous. Do I think animals make choices? Yes, I do. I see it all the time, not least in my dog. Just two hours ago, he CHOSE not to go outside for a walk. But in all fairness, it isn't even really a choice. Other than humans and dolphins, no other animal has sex for recreation, which means that sex for those creatures is more a compulsion of the survival instinct than something they choose to do. If an animal is not able to get a mate during mating season, that doesn't mean their natural compulsion to mate has been magically turned off. Since in many species the balance of male and female will almost always be off, there will always be extra males or females that end up with no mate. Is it so weird to think that they may then CHOOSE to ease that compulsion with another of the same sex? Hardly... Some CHOOSE to ease that compulsion with anything they can find. I saw a video a couple of weeks ago where a bull tried humping the farmer who was trying to feed him. You damn sure aren't going to convince me THAT is natural.
A wonerful, insightful reply ---- and we all thank you.
Who cares what other people think
THAT --- I like!
I thought people embraced religion as an excuse to BE judgmental. The Simpsons joke was when Flanders' wife went to Bible camp to learn how to be judgmental.<br />
I'm not much for AA since it's like a religion but I do like the Live and Let Live saying they have.
Don't forget pedos.
Very, no, extremely true!
