So, I've been thinking (and please don't ruin my thread like you did iGary's)... what if being gay was a choice? Personally, I don't believe it is, but let's go with the premise here. Homosexuality is a choice. So? Aren't we living in a free society where adults can make choices like that? And what if it is a sin against (the Christian) God? Again, so? Putting aside the other things that are equal, or even greater, sins listed in certain parts of the Bible such as Leviticus, since when do we base our laws on religion? I mean, just because morality and ethics often collide, that doesn't mean everything some people happen to believe has to become law. Especially considering how many don't. Some religions believe that pork, or suger, or caffeine, or even electricity is bad. Does that mean if a majority of Americans (read: American voters) were Amish they would get to tell the rest of us we couldn't use toasters or cars? I know I wouldn't like that. So then if you don't like homosexuality, what's so bad about just not being gay yourself? Why tell other people they can't be? Why is it when they say they want to love someone of the same sex, you get to tell them they can't because you believe it's wrong? I doubt we'll get anywhere here, but I'd really like to know why people think they get to tell someone else how to live based on what they believe?
