What I find perverse about homosexuality is the insistence
from the gay community that I should know about their sexual proclivities. Normal people understand that sex is an
extremely intimate and therefore private act.
I would find it troubling, if not disgusting, for anyone to talk
publicly about what kind of sex they like to practice. Normal people do not want to broadcast to the
world the details of their sex lives. There
is something wrong with those who want complete strangers to know who they like
to have sex with.
Medical statistics tell me homosexuality is unhealthy. My Christian faith teaches me it is
unrighteous. Common sense tells me it is
unfruitful and unnatural. But none of
that is why I am fed up with the gay community.
I’m just sick of hearing about how one group of people demand that
everyone in the world accept who they want to have sex with!
Not long ago I received a call from someone looking for
information about church. He wasn’t
really interested in learning anything about the congregation…he just wanted to
know what I thought about homosexuality and how he would be treated in
church. When I asked him how anyone was
going to know he was a homosexual unless he told them there was silence. And that was very telling. He called me to talk about his sexuality and
how others would react to it. I really
can’t think of any other group of people whose chief concern when seeking out a
place to worship is how their sex life fits in.
I wonder if all the stories making the news today about
bakers and florists being forced to cater to homosexuals would be stories but
for people announcing who they like to have sex with? I mean, did the offended customers come in
and ask for a wedding cake or flowers for their wedding and were denied service
because they looked like
homosexuals? Or did the customer come in
and announce their sexual preference
and then demand service? I suspect the
I believe homosexuality is wrong. Just like I believe adultery and sex outside
of marriage is wrong. But even though I
believe I have good reasons for opposing homosexuality as a normative lifestyle
based on science, medicine, and faith, that is not why I strongly oppose
it. I believe anyone who insists
everyone know what they do in their bedroom and with whom is perverse. Normal people do not define themselves solely
on the basis of who they are sexually attracted to.
