I do know it has been some time since I’ve written and I’m a bit nervous about writing one thing that I’m positive is controversial nevertheless it has been on my thoughts for some time so right here it goes.
There was a variety of speak these days about being Homosexual – homosexual marriage, homosexual within the army, American Idol homosexual, is he homosexual?, is she is a lesbian?. Can somebody please inform me what all of the hype is. Being homosexual is nothing new. Homosexual individuals have been on the planet for a while and apart from a choice they’re no completely different you then and me! And since when will we care SO a lot about what somebody does behind closed doorways. Is that what America does now? We regulate not solely what goes on in a public venue however now we have to know what goes on in personal as effectively?
Have a look at Adam Lambert on final season’s American Idol gay blogger. I assumed he was very proficient – nice voice, nice search for present enterprise. However when it was throughout, what was everybody fascinated by… is he homosexual? Who cares that he’s homosexual!! Does that make him any much less proficient? Ought to we no longer purchase his album? And whereas we’re at it, lets not purchase Elton John’s albums both, or George Michael, or Melissa Etheridge. And since we’re speaking about who’s homosexual on American Idol, possibly we must always begin speaking about who’s homosexual on So You Suppose You Can Dance. Or is it OK for a dancer to be homosexual however not a singer? Does this complete factor sound ridiculous but?
What about gays within the army. President Obama gave his State of the Union handle final evening and as he mentioned how gays needs to be allowed brazenly within the army and all of the army heads seemed like they have been simply given a demise sentence! Actually? So are you saying that gays cannot be patriotic? They do not have the identical accountability to their nation? They cannot battle as effectively? They don’t seem to be as good or expert? For those who let one homosexual individual within the army will they then convert all different troopers to be homosexual too? There have been loads of circumstances of rape and torture throughout the army and “straight” troopers. Is that sort of exercise higher than being homosexual? Here’s a little reminder of why this county got here to be: We maintain these truths to be self-evident, that each one males are created equal, that they’re endowed by their Creator with sure unalienable rights, that amongst these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. – Declaration of Independence
And the way about homosexual marriage? I occur to imagine that if two individuals love one another and need to show that dedication with marriage then I’ve no proper to get in between that. I feel love and dedication to one another is what we needs to be selling. Now do not get me unsuitable, I do imagine in God, and though I’m not a training Catholic, I nonetheless maintain many of the beliefs, I learn the bible and I do know what it says about marriage. Right here is my difficulty, technically, the bible is rumour. It was written by man, their interpretation of God’s phrase. There are books of the bible which have been banned from the version that everybody has of their residence. We weren’t there. We do not know what was actually stated. I attempt to reside my life in a approach that doesn’t make me ashamed, the way in which I feel God would need me to reside. However I can not be answerable for another person and I’m certainly not “with out sin” to cross judgement. Every of us will sometime must reply for our selections in life. Till that day comes I do not plan on making anybody reply to me whereas they wait. And the way significantly better is a standard marriage anyway? Divorce and adultery is at an all time excessive. On Fox information the opposite day they stated that the divorce charge was truly dropping. Are you aware why? Not as a result of everyone seems to be happier or as a result of standard are placing forth extra of an effort into their relationships – it’s as a result of it’s too costly to separate!! It’s cheaper to remain collectively! Boy are standard relationships higher or what!
I’m positive all my conservative republican mates are prepared to chop me off proper about now. However I feel I’m simply as entitled to an opinion as you’re. Cannot all of us simply be individuals? Why even now within the 21st century we nonetheless have to distribute labels. America of America got here to be as a result of we wished to flee the labels and persecution and simply be who we wished to be – and these days it simply looks like we have now become what our ancestors labored so laborious to get away from.
Personally, I’m straight and have some homosexual mates which have been among the biggest mates I’ve ever had. I dedicate this weblog submit to you. I’m sorry that on this modern-day what you favor behind closed doorways within the privateness of your personal residence remains to be such a big subject of debate. I do not care if you’re democrat, republican, unbiased, conservative, liberal, homosexual or straight, non secular or atheist – somebody’s choice needs to be of nobody else s concern however their very own.
