If I believe stealing is immoral, does that automatically mean I hate thieves? No. If I believe breaking the Ten Commandments is or should be immoral, does that mean I hate people who break the Ten Commandments? Of course not; that would also mean I hate all people, including myself – and I don’t.
A common argument from the homosexual movement is that people who disagree with them hate them. Is that logically true? No. Could some who opposes the homosexual movement hate the homosexual? Yes. Do all people who disagree with the homosexual hate the homosexual? Of course not. I find such an argument to be a petty argument to incite sympathy…you don’t like what I’m doing so it has to mean you hate me. There must be a better argument than that. The idea of Equal Rights sounds a little better, but still doesn’t fit the bill. Anyone?
Anyone sexually frustrated because your sexual desire is not a) morally and socially acceptable or b) not legal? Feel free to borrow the argument below:
An unmarried person desires to have sex with another. Choosing to do so results in sexual immorality.
A married person desires to have sex with someone other than their spouse. Choosing to do so results in adultery.
A family member desires to have sex with another family member. Choosing to do so results in incest.
An adult desires to have sex with a child. Choosing to do so results in pedophilia.
A person desires to have sex with an animal. Choosing to do so results in bestiality.
A member of one sex desires to have, well they can’t have intercourse because it’s not naturally possible, but desires to have sexual relations with someone of the same sex. Choosing to do so results in homosexuality.
Common words throughout all instances listed above: desire and choice. There is a desire to have sex. There is a choice to do it or not.
America is now giving moral, social and legal rights to the homosexual that are equal to the heterosexual. If America wants equal rights for the homosexual, then the sexually immoral, adulterer, incestuous person, pedophile, and those who practice bestiality must become morally and socially acceptable, and if need be, legally equal to all other sexual orientations. Doesn’t America want fairness and equality, not just for the homosexual, but for all people who are born with the desire to have various sexual relations?
Are homosexual rights an issue of fairness and equality? Are they unalienable? I say not. Civil rights are an issue of inherent skin color. One may be born with black skin or white skin – but they have no choice in the matter. One may be born with a human nature having a tendency towards homosexual desire, as well as other sexual desires listed above, but they have a choice as to whether or not they act on the matter. ‘
No matter how strong the desire towards any behavior, Jesus’ blood is more powerful than our tendency. John 8:36 Romans 8.
