Homosexuality Cut and Paste Info…by Matt Slick
Agenda, acceptability, recognition, and approval of homosexual behavior as a right.…Homosexuals want others in society to think like them (and behave like them?). …Their aim is to change moral, social, and political opinion to be more in line with what they want. …They are not content to behave and what they decided to be and want. …They want others to accept and change their opinions about homosexual behavior by claiming it to be a human and civil right and all should conform to their ideology. …Does that give them the right to try and change society into what they want it to be?…Animal kingdom: …If Homosexuality occurs in the animal world can it be classified as being natural.?…By saying homosexuality is natural because it occurs in the animal kingdom does it mean it is morally correct.? …Animals also eat each other alive, devour offspring, etc. …Because the animals do that, should we imitate those things as well? Of course not.…Is it possible for homosexuality to further the development and distribution of the human species from an evolutionary perspective? No, it is not. …Homosexuality would obviously work for self-extermination. …Therefore, if it leads to self-destructionhow can that be natural?…It would seem that natural selection would have removed the “gene for homosexuality” since it would not lead to reproduction. …It would also seem, that homosexuality is not natural but is a sexual behavior that one acquiresor learns and prefers. …Born as Homosexuals: …If homosexuals are born that way, it would be natural to them.…There is no proof that homosexuals are born that way. …Researchers all over the world have not found conclusive evidence to show or provethat they are born that way. …If a certain behaviour is said to be natural and because of that such a person should be accepted, this is why they claim homosexual behaviour should be accepted.…Is it not also natural for people to lie and should lying now be accepted? …Children are not taught how to lie; it appears to be natural to them. …Should we then say that because the behavior of lying is natural and that there should now be special privileges for people that lie and accept their behavior in society because that’s just the way they’re born and that it is their truth-orientation?…Freedom like anyone else:…Every one including homosexuals, are already free to marry a person of the opposite sex.…They can still get married and express love, they can own businesses, property, have sexual relations, received an inheritance, etc.…For homosexuals to advocate redefining marriage to include a union between a man and man and a woman and a woman and have it legally protected is to demand special rights to suit their behavior. …If legal protection are granted to peoples behaviors, then what about the behaviors of pedophilia, jump roping, and scuba diving? Should those behaviors also be given political protection?…Homosexual peopleare free to love, hate, work, eat, play etc. as everyone else, but in addition to that marriage should now be redefined to suit same sex intercoursebehavior.…Freedom requires responsibility.…People are not free to rob banks, to murder, to steal, etc.…Simply by saying you are not free to marry who you want to isn’t a good enough objection because:…By Law a person is not free to marry another person who is already married.…A brother and sister are not free to marry each other.…A pedophiliac and his younger “partner” are not free to marry each other even if a 13-year old person wants to marry the older person.…By Law, a person is not free to marry an animal.…By Law, a person is not free to marry another person against that person’s will.…If freedom to marry whomever you want to is the litmus test for marriage, then marriage will become meaningless as people redefine it to include those already married, siblings, children, animals, etc., as long as “love” is the defining characteristic.…If we allow and promote homosexual marriage, then shouldn’t we also allow and promote polygamy, polyandry, brothers and sisters getting married, pedophiliacs marrying children, and adults marrying animals? If not, why not?…Health:…Is homosexuality harmful to society? …According to statistics….yes. …Why then should it be protected and promoted by government?

Of course not. …Love is not the only measure that validates marriage. …So to say that homosexuals should be able to marry whoever they love is a misrepresentation of the issue.…Population percentages.…“Based on the 2013 NHIS data, …96.6% of adults are identified as straight, …1.6% are identified as gay or lesbian, …0.7% are identified as bisexual. …The remaining 1.1% of adults identified as ‘something else,’ stated ‘I don’t know the answer,’ or refused to provide an answer.” (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nhsr/nhsr077.pdf).…Questions…Is it okay for the schools to teach the children that homosexuality is just another acceptable lifestyle when their own parents disagree? …If so, what gives homosexuals the right to contradict the moral values of parents? …If you say it is not a moral issue, then you are saying sexual behavior is not a moral issue and, therefore, adultery, pedophilia, bestiality, etc., would not be moral issues either.…What then is the definition of marriage ?…Civil Rights…Marriage is not a civil right.
