The only thing they're denied is religious, and that's because every religion hates it.

And tv shouldn't be that much of a pain. You can't let anyone in grade school anywhere near a tv without an adult? Seriously?

And finally, no, ew.
Actually not every religion hates it. Many religions conduct same sex weddings and commitment ceremonies.
Thanks from waitingtables

Don't start thinking I'm a hypocrite. My views lie where I think TV should go back to before "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."
It'd be so much easier to let kids watch...
So I'm against both sides talking about it if you must know.
I will guess then, from what you are saying, that you are also getting way too much information from heterosexual people as well? That is common in college.

I'm not thinking that you are a hypocrite. I AM thinking that you might be more sensitive about a gay person talking about who they are attracted to as opposed to a straight person doing the same.

I'll ask again since your answer wasn't clear: And if a guy was on tv talking about how much he loves blondes, would that be talking about 'fucking girls?'
Thanks from imaginethat

From a heterosexual male... constant discussion of sex, either gay or not, bores me. I'm just as disinterested in the frat-boy exploits as I am anyone else's porn-chat. But sex sells & thanks to stat-keeping market-research bean-counting industry robots it's everywhere. Almost every popular radio song (especially in Urban genres) goes on and on about sex, which is why I never listen to pop-radio stations.

From a gay female, DITTO.

The Scripture is also clearly in favor of a number of other issues that I would certainly hope that most people in the 21st century would find abhorrent.
It's good that you are such an expert on Scripture.

Let's see if you are. What else is included in the three things that the Old Testament states is an abomination unto God, right along with Sodomy?

Point being, no need to nit pick other scripture, just the stuff included in the passage the bigots who use scripture to marginalize gay people have taken out of context. It's entirely germane to the haters' contention. No overreacting needed.

Proverbs 6:16-19 ESV

There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers

The scriptures were not taken out of Context.

It is a sin.. but then


ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

what drew you to this thread if not disgust?
Curiosity, and after reading the OP, I also wondered "What kind of mental illness....?"

Even allowing that homosexuality is a sin, so what? Which of us is without sin? We all have our personalized "package" of sins. No one's "package" of sins is superior to another person's.

Like you, I believe we'll all face an accounting of our sins. You're not a homosexual. Great. You've sinned, thousands of times, and to believe anything else is delusion.

You'll be held to account. Your saying, "But Allah, I'm no homosexual, and homosexuality disgusts me," isn't going to erase the thousands of sins you've committed, and continue committing, as we all do.

Be disgusted with your own sins. When you reach perfection, it will be obvious from your actions. Until then, live and let live.
