Dear GOD, this makes me mad. I have to RANT. NOW.

This may make some people angry. If you're offended by dissenting views on religious philosophy, or are sensitive about your religious beliefs, do NOT follow this cut. It may be your worldview I'm clobbering.

EDIT: Fuck it. EVERYBODY needs to read this. Taken out of the cut.

From an article on why the church opposes homosexuality I stumbled upon just now:

"Homosexuals and lesbians seldom are happy people. Theirs is a relationship that is unnatural, one not bound by fidelity, trust, or loyalty, and one totally lacking in the meaningful family relationships that marriage offers. Homosexuality often espouses emotional problems because of the constant insecurity inherent in a relationship neither sanctioned by nor protected by the law.

Because there is no legal bond, homosexuality too often encourages, or at least permits, promiscuity."


Okay, first of all. WHO is it that's trying virulently to make sure no possibility for a legal bond exists? Jesus, the hypocrisy, it BURNS.

Second, what the hell is up with the holier than thou act? Just because they aren't currently capable of obtaining an official legal bond, or a "sanctioned" pairing according to your parameters, they have no capability of being true to eachother? Their relationship can only be a committed one if you recognize it as a valid relationship? And because, since it's not between a man and a woman, this love is "fake", and gays will just go off and have sex with whomever they feel like? I notice that religious condemnations of homosexuality NEVER acknowledge it as actual love; as if straight people are the ones that are qualified to make that judgement. GodDAMMIT.

And yes, if you haven't figured out by now, I don't see homosexuality as a bad thing. And I hate discrimination with a PASSION. If you have a problem with that, you can kindly shove it.

And about opposing homosexuality "because the Bible sez so"? Yeah, NO. The Bible is merely a convenient cover; people aren't brought up to believe that any relationship besides the typical male-female is, quote, "natural", so they naturally see it as disgusting, because they can't wrap their mind around how any affectionate emotional bond would stray from those "natural" guidelines. But when one hates something, one must defend one's reasons for hating it, so as not to have said hatred appear as baseless and illogical as it truly is. So what's the best way to defend opposing something that you dislike without pesky logic interfering? The Bible, of course.

If you still argue "The Bible sez so", I can gladly break out the Leviticus 11:10 and Romans 7:6 arguments. Though if the controversy is half as heated as it sounds, they should have been done to death already. Should have.

And PLEASE, don't get me started on this ridiculous idea that gays have this monolithic "agenda" that homophobes are always invoking to instill some kind of irrational fear into the average family person. Even if there was such a thing as "recruiting", the gay community as a whole isn't nearly organized enough to have anything resembling an agenda. I have, however, noticed some oddly agenda-like movements within organized religion in America against homosexuality. Just a thought.

So, in conclusion, Jesus would slap the shit out of you. Thank you for tuning in to today's edition of Majutsukai Rants™, and have a nice day. ^-^

I have no problem with gays. They want that life style, that's fine. But I don't see giving them the same rights as straights, such as tax breaks, etc. In fact I don't accept that for the straights either. As I see it, it's all about sex -- and sex has only one purpose -- the propagation of the species. When two persons of the same sex can fulfill this requirement, then I will say no more.

If you have the confidence to create an opposing view, you need the confidence to post under your name, and not "Anonymous".

Secondly, Marriage is not "all about sex". It's about loving someone enough to enter into legally-bound relationship, setting the foundation for a family. Marriage is all about the FAMILY, imbeciles. Not the sex. Sex you can have regardless of marital status. Sex is EASIER to have if you aren't married. "Honey, lets get married so we can have more sex!" ...? I don' ting so, Patchy. It not work that way, Boss. Knave, thou art a subtle snake, a vile bragart, a vassel of LIES.

Yay, Nikki has comments for you!!

"you can kindly shove it."

Do tell me how that would be possible.

Yeah, I completely agree with everything you said. It is annoying that people are so closed minded. Quite frankly people who say "The Bible says it's wrong" Or my favorite "It's unnatrual" Are idiots. For one, if they had read their Bible they would know that is take *looks in her Bible" Not sure word for word what it says but pretty much just A man shall not lie with another man as he does with a women. In my oppinion that means Gays are stupid and Lesbains rock. Which by all means is stupid. To address the "It's not natural" Agrument, that is even more idiotic this the first. Do people not realize how many animals are homosexual. Can't get more natural then that.. Anyway will stop here, just wanted to agree with you lol.
