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.
Ok so here’s the deal: seems like here lately there’s been a big deal about homosexuality. Well, I have gay friends. Do I agree with being gay? No. Are they may friends? Yes. But here’s what really bothers me. They always have to play the victim. And again this is not about all homosexuals this is strictly about my friends. I just feel like yes, they have an extremely hard time because of the sex they like and people are rude and judge mental, but it does not only happen to them. Every. Single. Person. On this earth struggles. Straight gay bi pan or whatever. Black people get judged because of the color of their skin. People think they’re gonna get violent or rob someone. But not every black person does that. White people get judged because of the color of their skin. People think they’re racist. But not every white person is racist. 6 million Jews were persucuted during the holocaust. Because they were Jews. My point is, at some point every single person is victimized for an unfair reason. Everyone struggles, not just homosexuals. And I don’t feel as if my friends realize that. They feel as if they deserve some kind of special treatment because of their struggles. Well if that’s the case, victims of rape, molestation, physical and verbal abuse, domestic violence, families of those who have been murdered, and many more, all deserve special treatment.

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.
I’ve been rambling and probably not making sense but basically here’s the main point: no one is better than anyone else, we all live differently, we all struggle, we all have different beliefes and opinions. So the whole big fuss is unnecessary cause the whole world is never gonna agree on one thing as a whole.
As you can see the human race has issues :p

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.
I was talking about this with my youth group/ bible study thing, and it came down to the fact that being gay is just another form of a sin. people can point out 1000000 passages in the bible that say being gay is wrong, well you can also point out passages that say, lying, cheating, stealing etc etc is wrong. but for some reason, homosexuality has this feel to it that makes it feel like its not a sin. but it obviously is. its wrong, God says its wrong. (no offence to anyone, I understand everyone has different beliefes) its in the bible, but you wouldn’t stand up, dare I say, write an article on, how l lying is right. everyone knows that you shouldn’t lie, no matter if you are atheist or the most religious person ever. Its just the truth, so since being gay is just another sin, why are people writing articles on how it is right? let me review cause this is kinda confusing

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?”

@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?


Also, I honestly don’t see nearly as many Christians treating people who have gotten divorced, and especially those that have gotten remarried, anything like they treat gay people (working to ban re-marriage, telling them what they’re doing is a sin, etc.) even though their sins should be the same, right?

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.

@polkadot I know a guy that was born gay. He didn’t even have to come out. We just knew since we were children.
