Pro-gay letter fell flat

  • Follow Letters

The letter “Gays merely want rights” by John Cashin (Feb. 22) was the lamest attempt to be cool and progressive that I have ever seen.

When did unnatural sex become a civil right? Funk & Wagnalls defines unnatural as “contrary to the laws of nature.” Homosexuality rarely occurs in the natural world because snakes know better, monkeys know better, and birds, fish, lizards and even insects know better.

Mr. Cashin states that gays have no agenda. That is the second-most preposterous statement in his letter. His most ridiculous statement is that no laws have been broken. A Georgia law criminalizes sodomy. Sheriffs’ deputies have a legal obligation to arrest any person they witness engaged in any act of sodomy.

He asks why we don’t write letters protesting rape, murder or incest. The answer? We don’t have to. Society has the good sense to arrest and jail those people.

He says “They just want their rights.” I guess he means civil rights, which are described by Funk & Wagnalls as private and nonpolitical. Do us all a favor and keep your sexual preferences private and nonpolitical.

By one reliable estimate, more than 97 percent of U.S. citizens are heterosexual. Why do we have to cater to the 3 percent? After years of research and billions of dollars spent, geneticists are unable to find a gene that causes people to be homosexual. Until we know that a person can be genetically predisposed to be homosexual, it remains a matter of choice.

Today’s gay rights movement may be the first time in history that such a small group of people have been so vocal, so adamant and so public to promote a sexual activity. The 97 percent have much more important things to attend to, such as God, family, jobs, food, clothes and shelter.

OJP, Definition of

OJP,

Definition of HOMOSEXUAL
1: of, relating to, or characterized by a tendency to direct sexual desire toward another of the same sex
2: of, relating to, or involving sexual intercourse between persons of the same sex

I can be attracted mentally to someone of the same sex and still not be a homosexual. I had several teachers whom mentally I found very interesting and loved to have discussions with because they provided some very interesting viewpoints.

I can be attracted emotionally to someone of the same sex and still not be a homosexual. I am very emotionally attracted to my mother, my siblings, and life long female friends. Doesn't mean I want to have sex with them.

Being physically attracted to someone of the same gender and having a sexual desire for that person is what determines homosexuality so what determines whether you are homosexual or not, is Sex.

"But when that's over with,

"But when that's over with, the natural sexuality of the raped male, or the natural sexuality of the raped female has not changed."

Well seeings how it was not the choice of the raped male or female and because there was no sexual desire towards the raping partner, I do believe you little explanation has some flaws in the logic.

Also you said "But when that mating is over, the female horse is still a female horse and the male donkey is still a male donkey"

Yeah but if the male donkey was humping another male donkey would you say that donkey was a homosexual donkey. Isn't that the stance we've heard over and over again. There are homosexuals in the animals, male birds and dogs and etc having sex with other male species and they are homosexual so it must be natural.

Can't use it to prove homosexual behavior is normal and then try and prove the conduct doesn't destinquish homosexuality.

LOL dahreese....don't need to

LOL dahreese....don't need to ask. I'm just using your analogy and repeating the same words used by those who are pro-homosexual to prove how illogical your senario is and to justify my viewpoint that if someone has sex with the same gender they are considered homosexual. If someone has sex with both genders they are consider bi-sexual, and if someone has sex with the opposite gender thy are considered straight. Still can not see the logic in your opinion that if someone is "straight" and has sex (should say willingly has sex) with someone of the same gender they are still considered straight and not considered homosexual (or at least bi-sexual). Just does not make logical sense.

Unless you can come up with a better explanation, I'm going to consider this topic a dead end and moving on to more productive conversations. Good Day.

Just because I do not agree

Just because I do not agree with you does not mean I have an inability or lack of sexual knowledge or biblical knowledge but nice of you to turn this discussion into personal insults. I find when people do that they tend to do it out of frustration to loosing the argument. Like I said this topic is dead so please move on, I mostly am.
