Genuinely curious on a few points. If someone is gay, do you think that they should never have a partner? Or that they should find someone of the opposite sex and ‘pretend’ to enjoy their company?
I don’t believe that we get to choose who we are attracted to any more than we can chose who we love or our favourite food,
I’m aware that Christianity teaches that a variety of actions/sins are wrong and ultimately accountable for, but how could you possibly be penalised for how you feel?
I’m sure with the great deal of opposition that gay people have, if they could change; they would.
Other than the more married households there are, the Better it iis for the economy
Imagine if people’s lives were up for discussion based on any other prohibited acts from the bible? if people who wear mixed fabric, or eat the wrong meat on Friday were prohibited from getting married.
The argument that marriage and the ability to penetrate one woman with one man for the sole purpose of procreation- I’m sorry, but I imagine if a straight man were to cheat on his wife with another man, I’m sure the wife would call that cheating, the idea that ‘seed has to be spilled’… what about men for can’t perform for a variety of reasons? Do the people who believe the things on here really only become intimate with a view to impregnate the woman? What if they’re are too old, or unwell? What if he can’t ‘finish’?
Imagine if a man did to a woman what it is that you think two women do? (Other than penile penetration obviously) do you class same sex sex as mere affection? If it’s not sex then you’d be ok to do it to a family member right?
I can’t imagine why anyone could actually care what other people do, especially in bed.
It’s quite a peculiar preoccupation, you must admit. The only way same sex marriage could have any impact on your life would be if you wished to marry someone of the same sex.
I honestly don’t mean to appear antagonistic, I am genuinely intrigued. Why would one have such strong feelings? On something so irrelevant to you (unless you’re gay obviously)
There are so many teachings in the bible, which people ignore, or alter to fit this day and age, but the only ‘sin’ that is used to preach hate is the one that is interpreted to apparently ban people from acting on they feel.
If you believe that it’s wrong, then I’m sure you should be praying for the afflicted. If you believe it’s a choice, then I recommend that you attempt to find some who is the ‘wrong sex’ attractive.
What good does preaching hate do? What could possibly be so bad a consequence of strangers being happy?
I think that the immense sense of self importance is noteable. Imagine believing that people who have no idea even who you are, would consider your opinion when it comes to being happy. It’s a very egotistical and vindictive way of life. Not at all catholic.
Bless you for thinking that you have the power to make people miserable but I can’t imagine this level of zero tolerance and lack of respect for fellow humans would ever go down well you get to the pearly gates.
Like I said, really not antagonistic, I’m just curious.
