So What Are We Arguing About by SionnaDehr So What Are We Arguing About by SionnaDehr
Of course, I am not simply referring to homosexuality and all that applies to that particular lifestyle. I am also referring to lifestyles lead by strippers, prostitutes (though there are certain unfortunate reasons that put some of those poor people in that position, but I'm not referring to those precisely), Incestuous couples, and people that either sleep around with multiple partners or just sleep with one lover at a time until they get married. There are others but this is all that I can think of at the top of my head.
No, I don't like the way you guys live your lives. No I do not have to accept the way you live your lives. I can tolerate it, sure, but I'm not going to vote for something that is against my moral convictions whether I am religious or not.
With that being said, this does NOT give either side an excuse to treat each other like the scum of the earth. Contrary to popular belief, not every Christian (or Abrahamic based religion) wants homosexuals and other sinners to burn in the fiery pits of hell. What is said about Hitler need not apply here (lol). But that is not the point of Christianity. Christianity is a lifestyle of modesty, in reality, and not a lifestyle that alienates people from the world. Sadly, many people treat it like that. It is also not a lifestyle based solely on blind love as some Christians try to make it. It is a lifestyle of reason, deep philosophical thinkers that merely want to understand the universe that God has created for us to observe. Due to the way many of my constituents act, I can understand how hard this is to accept, but may I link you to at least one church website (with audio and notes on pdf) to show you? [link]
I'm not trying to convert anyone, I just simply want you to understand that not every Sunday church goer listens to "sermons" or "preachers". Some of us love teachers too. :)

Now, I am also very much aware of the fact that there are people in the non-christian (and chrisitian) community who live a lifestyle that I don't agree with. As for Christians, all I can say is that you know what the Lord says about certain things and that, ultimately, it is between you and God. All I can do is encourage you and, maybe even, exhort you lovingly. But, even so, you are brothers and sisters in Christ even if you don't follow His walk completely. So long as you believe and trust that Jesus Christ died for your sins and rose again from the grave three days later and that he is, not just the son of God, but also God himself, I will see you in heaven. Those of you who are not Christians and live the lifestyles that I do not agree with please understand that I do not hate you. I understand that me not thinking or accepting you for who you are seems as a slight against everyone who is like you, but its not. I don't like or agree with everyone listening to pop music. I think communism is moronic. I disagree with a lot of things that people like, but I don't hate the people who think that way.

So, what I'm trying to say is, Christians: stop acting like stark raving lunatics. You have no reason to unless there is some serious hurt going on from the other side (like if gay rights activists go into a Chick-fil-a restaurant and vandalize and insult and hurt the innocent employees *Do not deny that this happened there are too many witnesses*). Respond to them, but don't react. Reacting isn't always the best thing to do. Others: stop acting like the world revolves around you (and I can say this to Christians too, so both sides take a look at both of my addresses) and your lifestyle. If each of you puts aside your differences and talk you might actually be able to civilly discuss your matters without the kicking and screaming.

Thank you and good day.

Being attracted to the same gender isn't a lifestyle, it's just a part of who someone is, and it isn't changeable.
Please shove your homophobic nonsense up your arse.

I wasn't jealous before we met
Now every woman I see is a potential threat
And I'm possessive, it isn't nice
You've heard me saying that smoking was my only vice
But now it isn't true
Now everything is new
And all I've learned has overturned
I beg of you
Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
It was like shooting a sitting duck
A little small talk, a smile and baby I was stuck
I still don't know what you've done with me
A grown-up woman should never fall so easily
I feel a kind of fear
When I don't have you near
Unsatisfied, I skip my pride
I beg you dear
Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me
I've had a few little love affairs
They didn't last very long and they've been pretty scarce
I used to think that was sensible
It makes the truth even more incomprehensible
'Cause everything is new
And everything is you
And all I've learned has overturned
What can I do
Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

You're very right. I'm sorry so many people misinderstood you... :hug:
Thank you for being brave and sharing this messege. It's important, overlooked, and quickly judged. People don't realize that we are genuine in that statement and they go and do to us what they think we do to them (but actually don't do to them) xO
Stay strong and never stop sharing God's love and truth :'3

sorry i think straight people are gross because in the bible it created adam and steve, not adam and eve. god gave us the gift of being gay and by being straight goes against god's wishes. you must repent for being a heterosexual or you will succumb to the fires of hell for your sin. ill send a prayer to the lord and saviour the son of our god jesus christ to rid of your sin. Pray God Loves Gay People icon

Well, I can see some people misunderstood your message, but I understand what you mean. My oldest brother was homosexual for almost all his life, he did not choose to like men and women, but he believes in God and love him with all his heart for all His mercy; and even if my brother didn't choose his orientation, He DID CHOOSE his way to live getting away from that lifestyle when he got conviction that an homosexual life (doing those stuff, not just being) was very wrong. Now he's very happy with his faith and new life in Christ, and he's a much better person than he was in last year (he was born again, a new creature). We do not congregate in a church, but we study the bible with a few brothers and sisters in faith in our house, and it's beautiful to keep learning and growing to be real christians (real disciples of Jesus Christ). As long as people is breathing, they still have hope to know the TRUTH and be real free from sin.

PS: The earth is flat (the bible and the scientific experiments proves it) and NASA is a big fraud. The big deception for all the world is in action (the deceit of the devil).

Although I think your wording is a wee bit off when you call a sexuality a lifestyle (Which, it's a preference, which isn't the same as a lifestyle), I agree with the message of "live and let live" that you're trying to communicate.

It's a shame though that a lot of people are reading this message the way it wasn't intended :shrug:

why does everyone call it a lifestyle? it is not a lifestyle, its a sexuality, which nobody can control. lifestyles are chosen at will, sexuality is not.

Right?!

But, you know, whatever. People will draw their own conclusions. And I've come to a better understanding of my actual opinion on the matter. Live and let live is the basic sum of it though it won't stop me from saying "that's a terrible argument" when the moment comes up. Which it does. A lot. from both sides of the isle. Because people apparently don't know how to think anymore.

Define the "black lifestyle". Skin color? That's genetic and somewhat environmental. As far as we know homosexuality isn't.

Being gay is NOT a lifestyle. It's a frickin sexuality; get it right. Also, yes; hating on a sexuality makes you homophobic.

It became hatred when people realised that hating on a sexuality is homophobic. And that was years ago. It's not illogical. If you're homophobic and take the old book so seriously to the point you hate one people for who they are than you're the illogical one. :/

Don't forget, you are not God to judge anyone.
I believe in God (spiritually), i'm already fell in love with a woman (we can't control our feelings) once but I know that God made me like this. 
So don't judge.

I know your comment is kinda old, but it reminded me of something. If God supposedly knew us before we were born, then he would know that some people would be born gay. So why would he punish us for this? Is he a sadist or something?
