Honestly Audie, I don't even know how to address this...Next time I will remember not to use just quotation marks, but specify something like
"sin", ie, a cult-concept with no demonstrable basis in reality, by which people who will can apply a one-size-fits-all self defining ideal to all.
If you feel that those who are emotionally incapable of having heterosexual relations
should ideally be forded into celibacy, or forced into heterosexual activity because it is ideal for the species, you have something really wrong with you. I hope not.
Are you arguing against the notion of "sin" ?
If so that is one thing.
Are you arguing that homosexuality is a sin? because that is another.
I am not arguing for anything.If you feel that those who are emotionally incapable of having heterosexual relations
should ideally be forded into celibacy, or forced into heterosexual activity because it is ideal for the species, you have something really wrong with you. I hope not
I am stating that because of something negative a person is not justified to resort to another things that is negative.
Now, IF you want to argue that ( that it is better for a person to be in a good homosexual relationship than in a bad heterosexual one) then that is fine.
I agree that, IF there are ONLY two choices and those are:
Be in a bad heterosexual relationship or be in a good homosexual one.
That it would be best to be in a homosexual one then, yes I agree.
BUT and this is a big BUT:
Don't you find it of some concern that the type of relationship ( in this case homosexual) is "OK" ONLY BECAUSE the other option is Bad?
Sort of the lesser of two ills?
I mean, if someone came to you and said that you have but two choices of how to eat:
Forced fed with a high percentage of chance that you will gag and choke ( but still eat) or:
Drink only liquids that will satisfy your need to eat BUT will not allow you to be active at all and you must be totally immobilized.
They are choices and neither is good, nor would they ever be viewed as good BUT under the circumstances one MAy be better than the other.
Now, the above is NOT a comparison to heterosexualoitu and homosexuality, especially since eating is a necessity and sex is NOT, but the example illustrates that just because a 1 choice is better than the other, it doesn't make it a good choice.
