I'm married with 3 children and I can honestly say I've never been attracted to another woman. I'm just NOT. But I don't necessarily think it's WRONG, it just doesn't apply to me. The same way some people go to church every day. I don't do that. Others exercise every day. I OBVIOUSLY don't do that, although I definitely SHOULD. Some people choose to homeschool their children, again, not for me. Do I think it's "wrong"? No. Can I give you reasons why *I* wouldn't do it? Absolutely. And yet, there are hundreds of thousands of people homeschooling their children. I was raised Catholic. I have friends that are Lutheran, Baptist, even some that are agnostic. But that doesn't make me love them any less. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, but it's just that, THEIR BELIEFS! As long as you don't try to MAKE me agree with you, then I'm fine with it. I know a lot of people are quoting the Bible and saying it's Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve. (BTW, that cracks me up every time I hear it). But ask yourself this question: How long ago was it that people were quoting the same Bible to justify slavery? And unequal rights for women? Unfortunately, it wasn't that long ago. Can you imagine where we'd be today if that was still going on?
When you are in a position of power or in the public eye, don't be surprised about people getting pissed off at you when you make a statement about something that people are so passionate about. No matter what your position is, you're not going to have 100% agreement from the rest of the world. So you need to be prepared for that if you want to make a stand. And don't play "victim" when people start going off on you. If that's how you feel, fine. Stand up for yourself. But then don't expect a pity party from the backlash. At least not one from me.
Another thing: The people that are using religion as justification for it to be "wrong", really irritate me, and here's why. Don't go around preaching about how good and how great God is, and then say that He doesn't love someone because of their beliefs. Do you NOT see a problem with this? Because *I* do. A MAJOR PROBLEM. If you want to talk about God and Jesus, consider Jesus for a moment. He never turned ANYONE down. He was a friend to sinners, (and let's face it, we're ALL sinners), lepers, even those that betrayed Him, i.e. Judas and Peter - He never stopped loving them, and He even forgave them. So why wouldn't God/Jesus do the same for Gays? Do you really think He'd accept someone that BETRAYED Him, but NOT accept someone just because they're gay? Seriously. I don't see that happening. And I have a hard time with "Christians" condemning anyone just because they are gay, or black, or a different religion. Doesn't sound very CHRISTIAN to me.
Last thing: I have 3 children. Do I think any of them are gay or will "become" gay? Now, no. Maybe? Who knows? But do you think if they did/were that I would love them any less? They're my CHILDREN! I will love them NO MATTER WHAT. And aren't WE GOD'S children? God loves UNCONDITIONALLY. He loves more than we do. He accepts more than we do. He forgives more than we do. Aren't we supposed to "model" ourselves after Him? If YOUR God preaches hate, unforgiveness, and judgement, then I'm sorry, but we must not believe in the same God. Because MY God doesn't. MY God preaches love, forgiveness, and acceptance. And personally, I like MY God better.
