No, I do not fear you. If I had made a more controversial argument, possibly, but I was trying to make the point that this was most certainly a heated debate.
If I am not mistaken, there is a hormone balance test. With this test you can measure the amount of hormones your body contains.
I know what research says, but I believe that gay is a relative term. However, if you take a look at many of my past debates you can see I find a ton of things relative ;)...
Now, what I mean is...Let's say Joey is gay (random name, I promise)
Joey was born with a unbalanced of hormones, and he chooses to live the way his hormones balanced him to be.
Now, let's say Mark is also gay. (random, really)
Mark was born with unbalanced hormones. However, Mark is a Christian, and believes God does not want him to live his life as a gay man. Therefore, Mark decides to suppress his gay feelings. By doing this Mark chooses the Lord over his sexuality. It does happen, rarely.
Now, I might come across as a raging Christian here, but that is not my intention. While I am a Christian, I don't run around yelling at people who choose to live a different lifestyle. Like I said, that is not my place.
I also find it interesting how churches have accepted the gay community. My philosophy is we are in urbanized America. When I say that I mean that we have churches that don't use old-time principles any more. Whether that is wrong or right is all in the eye of the beholder.
Ok, after reading the uhh, dare I say, controversial opinions ;)
I am scared to post my own!
Well, sorry, I am going to anyway! =P
I am not gay.
I read Kukla's argument putting down the moral and religous reasons behind people who are against gay rights.
Therefore, I will say only this. The Bible says a man shall not sleep with another man, and a woman with a woman. So, personally I don't agree with those who are gay individuals.
However, I am not one to tell you how to live your life. I do believe that some people are born with an attraction to the same sex. I won't deny that. Now, I have heard in some cases where an individual who was born with more of the opposite sex's hormones is attracted to the oppisite sex. However, they chose to live life as a straight person because they believed that's what God wanted them to do.
Does it hurt anyone? Hard to say. Me, personally? No,just because I disagree doesn't mean I have to be effected with someone else's decision.
So, that's my opinion. Go ahead. Chop me to pieces. I can take it! ;)
