Took some guts for a pro athlete to come out while still an active player. But gladly attitudes have changed enough so that he will find plenty of support. I think his actions will help those who still live in fear of being ostracized and bullied for something that really has little bearing on an individual's character.
You provide zero moral authority for your opinion. As for bullying and being ostracized, the reality is that anyone who states an opinion or tenet that same-sex sexual proclivity doesn't make same-sex sexual behavior moral is currently being bullied and ostracized "for something that has great bearing on an individual's character".
It takes audacity to use "gay" and "coming out" when engaging in a narrative on sexual proclivity vs. sexual identity.
I've never had anyone bandying "gay", define it, in the current context it's being chilishly used to dictate a narrative and advance a policital agenda on the issue of same-sex sexual proclivity, behavior and body politic licensed relationships.
Those advancing the narrative do not want to discuss the issue on an intellectual level, much less a moral authority basis.
I want to discuss the issue on an intellectual level. Would love to.
Moral authority: the golden rule.
Political agenda? Political agendas, in a democratic society, are often (and should always be) born out of society's calls for change/justice. We raise our voices with opposing views. This is good. This 'political agenda' is manifest because so many people, like myself, cry for justice, equality and love. We see homosexuality as having no inherently negative power (in my personal view, it is a postive, natural and much-needed power in our world).
Natural? What they do is contrary to nature. A man and woman are a perfect "fit" Not so a man and man or a woman and woman. Nothing could be more un-natural.
If you believe in God it's clear why same sex attraction disorder is not acceptable. If you don't believe in God but believe in evolution this disorder is still un-natural. Our bodies evolved into a perfect "fit" and to procreate. Those with same sex attraction disorder neither "fit" nor procreate so what they do is un-natural.
There is no scientific evidence that people are born with this disorder. It used to be considered a psycological disorder but was taken off the books for pc reasons.
I know I will be called all sorts of names by the inclusive tollerant progressives for expressing my views. I'm used to it so have at it ;0)
I will not call you a name. I will how ever question your logic for your assumptions.
If you believe in god, and god made it possible for a man to love another man why do you all of a sudden have the right to question the designs of the all mighty?
Also do you eat pork? this is one of many things that is a hell worthy offense in the bible.
Also believe it or not it is offensive to call homosexuality a disorder whether or not you agree with it. Many people throughout history have though that love between races and religions is symptomatic of a disorder. Your reasoning is the same as people who were anti interacial marriage all those years ago.
I have a hard time discussing issues with people who are so close minded as yourself. Thats not an insult or name calling but an accurate portrail of the words you have typed into your comment box and submitted to BDC.
