  • Yes I don't want to be labeled a homophobe by having an opinion that doesn't endorse LGBT.

  • No LGBT activist is going to make me endorse their degeneracy.

  • Nope. I don't endorse degeneracy.

  • I don't condemn it, but I don't endorse it either.

  • This clashes with our freedom of religion.

  • Okay, first of all, I don't believe that it clashes with someone's freedom of religion, just like somebody has mentioned before. I don't believe your freedom of religion should interfere with other people's freedom. That being said, I chose "no", because LGBT advocates shouldn't force people to endorse their lifestyle and the initial question implied a certain amount of enforcement.

  • Though I support gay marriage (but the Supreme Court decision was wrong, and it should have been left to the states), forcing others to approve of your lifestyle is never a good thing. How would you like it if I forced you to start living the way I live? People are entitled to their own opinions and ways of life and forcing one or another lifestyle or set of beliefs on disagreeing people is rude and ignorant, and shouldn't be practiced in the gay community.

  • The thing is, LGBT people and supporters normally don't have the intention of making others supporters or apart of the community. On the other hand, homophobes are interested in making other people homophobic which I don't agree with. Therefore, I don't agree with forcing someone else to support something they don't agree with. This doesn't clash with your freedom of religion though. That just means that the government can't arrest you for what you believe in, it doesn't mean that others can't bash on your beliefs or say that you're wrong and try to change your mind.

It isn't a lifestyle
SegBeg says2016-08-29T20:41:47.6503933Z
Heterosexuality is a lifestyle so I consider homosexuality to also be a lifestyle. If it is not a lifestyle, what is it?
SegBeg says2016-08-29T20:43:30.3302515Z
Also, TheChristian, a bit UNChristian of you to be cussing at somebody isn't it?
Throwback says2016-08-29T20:49:02.2980042Z
It's a lifestyle. It's a perverted one at that. Denial changes nothing.
TheChristian says2016-08-29T21:18:42.6822417Z
It's genetic. It was proven. Why do biological twins usually have the same sexuality? Calling it a lifestyle is downright insulting, demeaning, and beyond offensive. It's worse than calling a gay person a fag. I don't give one shred of a fucking fuck about being Christian-like when someone else is being an insufferable asshole because you can't stand two guys loving each other, or two girls. It's fucking genetic. Like intelligence and gender identity (See David Reimer's life as evidence, and this article

@TheChristian, well that's okay. You can think what you want to think but unfortunately, I will also think what I want to think as well.
Throwback says2016-08-29T21:29:39.3300693Z
Genetic....Lol. That's worn out and old. That is an agenda driven conclusion. Part of the devolution of society. A people without virtue cannot be free. We are well on our way.
Throwback says2016-08-29T21:31:38.0795529Z
And to be clear, TheChristian, just because you are, or claim to be, a 15 year old homosexual, doesn't mean I'm going to pad your ego and say it's ok. It isn't. It is borne of hell. You don't have to accept it, you merely have to reap what you sow.
TheChristian says2016-08-29T21:45:15.7596041Z
So, numerous reliable scientists follow an agenda made by a shadow group of evil homosexuals to legalize homosexuality and break down social order? Replace "homosexual" with "Jew" and you are sounding like a Nazi. Your conclusions are insulting, demeaning, and offensive. You are more than welcome to think it, but unless you can reliably back it without biblical evidence, or downright insults, then fuck off. You are in a community of thoughtful, intelligent people, so id you can't prove your statements, you are no more than an ignorant "Christian" who preaches hell is the only destination for homosexuals, practicing or otherwise.
TheChristian says2016-08-29T21:46:25.4296507Z
Also, if you don't read my sources you have no right to denounce it because you disagree.
Throwback says2016-08-29T21:48:34.5483000Z
You are boring the hell out of me now.
TheChristian says2016-08-29T22:29:24.3102099Z
Oh, since you seem to be such a perfect Christian, you seem to think that homosexuals are going to hell, but ignore blasphemy, when your blasphemy is adamant. "Judge not, lest ye be judged"
Throwback says2016-08-29T22:43:54.2061581Z
You're ignorant of both me and Christianity.
Throwback says2016-08-30T02:05:26.5058781Z
Homophobe is a misnomer. It means "Fear of homosexuals." I can assure you I don't fear them. I simply despise the unnatural and perverted lifestyle.

Stop condemning something genetic because of what used to happen in the past. Are we going to make polygamy legal because it's mentioned in the Bible (Exodus 21:10-11; 2 Sam. 12:7-8) as well? Are we going to force women to marry rapists as well now (Deut. 22:28-29)? Are we going to stop shaving (Lev. 19:27) and wearing clothings with mixed fabrics as well (Lev. 19:19) now? Read this post made by a gay Christian, it pretty much talks about the Bible's stance on homosexuality from a gay Christian's perspective:

No one should make another group be made to endorse their lifestyle, ie: Christians have no rights infiltrating the government on marriage, abortions, birth control and sex educator. And the main attraction teaching Creative design or what horse shit they call it in public schools.
karlmarx59 says2016-09-01T05:24:52.1874115Z
Throwback, you have aright to despise the gay lifestyle. Fine. However, they ,too have the right to despise the hetero lifestyle. In Either case, you both have the same right to get married, have kids, buy a home, share property, retirement funds and the like. So...To make statements like it is borne of "hell" that is your PRIVATE, PERSONAL belief and should not insinuate it in their lives. Like me, the atheist..I do not believe in satan or hell and I do not believe in government telling me what to believe and how to pick my moral compass. So Why do Republicans who want small government do everything possible to infiltrate every aspect of our lives? I mean every damn minute detail?

@foxxhajti @karlmarx @TheChristian Heterosexuality is the only natural sex orientation, in which homosexuality is not. Your dissent against heterosexuality is accomplished nothing but accomplishing the intellectually dishonest. Genetic findings? Verses of the bible? Personal beliefs? All Irrelevant, because they don't justify the existence of degeneracy like homosexuality. I'm with Throwback, because I, too, simply despise the unnatural and perverted lifestyle.
Throwback says2016-09-01T08:13:31.9101382Z
@karlmarx59....I am Not speaking my opinion. Homosexuality is an evil. It is a perversion. I will not be a party to the Political Correctness Religion that insists we encourage today's favorite fault in our neighbors. I'm well aware my values are insignificant to nearly everyone. I see it in my own home, my wife, my children. But if I am the last person speaking the truth, I'm ok with it. And if just one poor soul who has been encouraged to live this evil lifestyle hears that it isn't right and decides to rethink it, it's worth putting up with the name calling and whatever else comes.

Straightup.Gong, Not so sure about that. Lately, the LGBT community has been pretty hostile to those who don't agree with them. There have even been cases of them trying to silence opposing opinions and some have advocated for the arrest of those who don't agree with gay marriage. I know not all LGBT's are like that, but it's become more prevelant nowadays more so than homophobes trying to make everyone homophobic
