I didn't say anything of that. I just said that today you just suffer the consequences of mistakes that have happened in the past and were done in the name of Christianity. I understand that you don't agree with what those people have done, but you are part of the Christian community. So today you might be seen as backwards, brainwashed, conditioned. But again that doesn't mean that you or others as individuals have such characteristics. I merely pointed out how change happens in history and how you can be in a position which you don't feel that comfortable as it once was. That's all.That's nonsense. So, according to you, black people should rule over the whites for a few hundred years because it was the other way around in the past? That would be a brilliant way of fixing historical inequities. Should we also re-establish vendetta?
Again, that doesn't mean that I agree with people calling you brainwashed, backwards, conditioned etc etc. That's a mean thing to do in the first place and it's wrong.
Life style is a part of people, you know that, right? I mean life style is related to what I do and what I do characterizes me... So you see, it is directed at people.Again, I don't see anything offensive directed at the people, but rather at the lifestyle.
Well, I think that they are denied one of the most important rights... the right to spirituality...You didn't reply to my question. What is forbidden to homosexuals, while at the same time allowed to heterosexuals?
I think that CallMeDave pointed out this problem very well: he looks at homosexuals as sinners and people who are perverting the natural law... bla bla
How can a homosexual get some relief from this stigma?
Disagreement is one, acting on it is a different thing: I think that the example with the catholic child adoption charity organizations that were closed because of homosexual couples who wanted to adopt children is a clear example of how things can be taken to the extreme.Where are the limits of "diversity"? Why doesn't your "diversity" apply to Christians disagreeing with lifestyles they don't approve of? Nobody is attacking or hating anyone here, contrary to what you think. What's so wrong about expressing disagreement?
I think that you have an inclination of taking things to the extreme yourself. You are giving some examples that have nothing to do with what I said.Who says that I am allowed to? What if I get aroused to a girl I see in the street? The law (rightfully) says that I'm not allowed to rape her. According to you, is that discrimination? Seriously, what's with these "instinct" schemes? Reason is what differs us from animals. People use their reason, animals use their instincts. But I guess, evolutionary teachings have contributed to animalizing humans.
When I said that sex is one of the basic instincts and I didn't say follow it every time you feel the urge. Of course we are humans and we have reason and educate our instincts. I just said that as a woman and a man have sex and it is considered to be normal, homosexual people should be allowed the same right without being called perverts or an abomination of nature...
Society changes and humans have the ability of adapting to a new environment and new conditions.
Sorry about that. I do know a place in my own country where things go the other way around. More and more churches are being built. Don't know why they build so many, but I guess that if you are a Christian it's nice to have a church every half of mile or so. Give me a PM and I will tell you the location. You might want to visit it in the near future.You know, this is already happening.
