Before I start let me make this clear : THIS IS NOT DIRECTED TOWARDS ANYONE HERE ON PI. Ok, hopefully that will be understood. This is strictly coming from MY own personal life and experience.

THANK YOU MCKAYLA FOR SAYING THIS.

Yes ma’am. In 100% agreement on that! <3 🙂

I don’t think they want special treatment, I think they want equal rights.

The people I’m talking about want to stop being judged. But yet they judge others for being “intolerant” or something. They don’t realize that not everyone has different beliefes and opinions. Some people think it’s wrong to be gay, and they, not all but the people I’m talking about, think it’s wrong to think its wrong to be gay. Here where I live they have equal rights. I just don’t feel that they have the right to put themselves above others with “woe is me because I like the same gender” card. All I’m saying is they need to realize that they aren’t the only ones who suffer from judgement. And don’t complain about being judged when youre actually judgeing someone else as well. You gotta give respect to get it.

I think what people have to understand is that just because I think something the do is wrong, doesn’t mean I hate them or can’t be friends with them. It’s like being friends with people from different religions. I think they are wrong, we disagree on a lot of points, but we’re still friends. I’m not sitting in constant judgment of them 😛

Same here! I just feel like some, not all, homosexuals are just as guilty of being closed-minded and intolerant of other people’s beliefs and opinions as some Christians, or others who don’t agree with homosexuality. (Again, the people I’m mainly referring to are people I know personally). What you choose to do with your life is between you and God, I have no say in that. So I’m accepting of everyone no matter what. I don’t always agree, but we weren’t made to all the same and agree on everything. But what I don’t accept is people putting down others for judging or being intolerant when they themselves are doing the same thing. If you take homosexuality out of the whole situation and focus only on human beings, it all boils down to pure hypocrisy. I think some gay and straight people simply because they don’t know how to agree to disagree civily. 1. Christians need to realize that we can’t change peoples lives to line up with what we believe. That’s something between them and God. 2. Homosexuals need to realize that not everyone is gonna agree with that lifestyle or what they do.

Ok that was probably more of a vent lol

The way I see it… Should a person tolerate racism, sexism, or any other form of discrimination? I agree that gay people shouldn’t act like they’re the most victimized people in the world…but I don’t really think wanting to be treated equally is wanting special treatment.

Ok, this may be a long one.
Being gay is just another sin, and pretty much the same as lying, stealing, ect. (james 2:10)
People are treating it like it isn’t a sin, and we know it is. (Leviticus 18:22)
So my next argument would be, that people are excusing it because they were “born that way” ok well I know this: GOD DOES NOT MAKE MISTAKES, so someone couldn’t have been born, and was supposed to be a man. God wasn’t like “woops! I accidentally made him a girl!” that doesn’t happen. it contradicts Gods nature.
The last thing is just that this is a really sensitive topic and if I offended anyone or something I said seem wrong, I am truly sorry, I am not an expert, I have not studied the bible for years and years, I am a Christian who believes that even tho someone is gay, God still loves them and wants them to turn from that sin. I also hate the song take me to church because it gives a non-realistic view about churches. my church accepts homosexuals because every sinner needs to learn about God. if you turn someone out for being Gay, then you also need to turn everyone out because everyone sins. the person who is turning the gay ppl out needs to turn themselves out… if that makes sence. ok now I am just rambling. OK thank you for reading 🙂 jesus loves you (and everyone!)

McKayla, why do you refer to being gay as a lifestyle? I’ve always wondered why people look at it that way. “Why is that straight people live a life, but everyone else lives a sketchy lifestyle?”
|April 10, 2015 at 21:04|
@doodlez58 People know lying is wrong because it is harmful. Being gay isn’t. And the notion that it is, and that it’s sinful and wrong, drives kids to depression and suicide because they feel they’ll never be accepted as they are and they know they aren’t able to change. So that’s why people write articles saying that it’s okay, because these people need to hear it. Because even if you believe what they are doing is sinful, isn’t it better to have these kids (and adults) alive than dead?

You bring up good points, but the thing is, that yes, there is a HUGE over reaction on both sides of the argument, being that people who believe that homosexuality is wrong, totally over react and stress the point to excess that it says that being gay is wrong in the bible, so therefore gays are horrible. BUT THATS NOT RIGHT! my point was not that being gay is the same as lying but that it is not the kind of person, but the activity they are participating in. then there are the people who are for homosexuality, who are claiming that Christians are against gays, and are horrible to them, and they are ignoring the Christians who are trying to be nice and show them God. Now, its not my place to say that it is wrong or not wrong to be Gay. it is no ones place, and so I will shut up

doodlez58– Question: Why do you assume that people are not born gay/lesbian/bisexual? I know God doesn’t make mistakes, but I saw this thing on TV where a transgender knew he wanted to become a boy when he was 3… so it’s kind of weird to say that he wasn’t born with it.
|April 14, 2015 at 21:42|
@polkadot I know a guy that was born gay. He didn’t even have to come out. We just knew since we were children.
