Quote# 78886

It's sad, really...bullying is unacceptable behaviour but children deciding to be gay is also unacceptable behaviour. The gay lifestyle is a chosen lifestyle. God would not have a baby born gay. He opposes homosexuality so, therefore, He would not allow a child to be "born gay". That's totally ridiculous! If you have a child, pre-teen, or teenager that has chosen to be gay, I feel nothing but sorrow for you. And all I can do is pray that none of my grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, etc., choose that lifestyle.

So, didn't God created children with Down Syndrome, with diabetes or other illnesses that he supposedly doesn't like?. And why would people choose to be attracted, suddenly, by a person of the same sex?. Purely ridiculous.

Well, God "opposes" a lot of things and yet murders people due to "acts of God",aborts babies daily and lies, cheats and steals. All there in the bible.

Chosen? When did you choose to be heterosexual?

... and what is this bullshit with 'lifestyle'? WTF does that even mean?

1/19/2011 4:30:25 AM

The homosexual lifestyle is more colorful and... gay... than the chosen lifestyle of Xians like thegoldenrule.

Your premise for why children cannot be born gay is terrible.

From the frozen north, Death cometh

Seeing as almost everywhere in the world idiots like you seem to regard gays as disgusting, HIV spreading second class citizen without the same basic rights as the heterosexuals around them, I somehow doubt they all just choose to be gay.

But I guess the 10% of people who are estimated to be homosexual just have a huge persecution complex... Oh, wait, it was the fundies who have boners for martyrdom.

LOL! That's the most ridiculous thing I've seen. I'm not gay, and neither do I have anything to do with them, but I can assure you that gay people -- and straight people -- CANNOT "choose" what naturally attracts them.

By the way, all humans are born without a belief in any gods... Now why is that? Maybe you should denounce your Xianity, since you'd be going against your god's "intentions" for the "ideal human being."

What I don't get is - why would anyone CHOOSE to be gay if it results in idiotic babble from people like the one cited here, in bullying and other vile things? Don't the fundies who keep claiming it is a choice ask themselves that, as well, and see how idiotic this whole "you chose to be gay" thing is?

1/19/2011 4:53:54 AM


First prove that your God exists, then prove that he controls each and every birth. Then I would like you to ask him why he hasn't sent any children my way?

Being homosexual is not a lifestyle any more than being left-handed is a lifestyle. Left-handed people have also been bullied and forced to conform, with equally poor results as with "curing" teh gay.

I bet at least one in your mass of offspring is gay, but he or she refrains from informing you.

The golden rule, isn't that Treat others as you want to be treated? Do you want others to feel sorrow for your parents, because of the way you turned out? Would you want others to pray that their great-great-grandchildren don't choose the fundaMENTAList lifestyle?

Doctor Whom

God would not have a baby born gay.

It's almost as though ... gosh, I know this is silly talk ... God either weren't as you describe Him or didn't exist at all.

And all I can do is pray....

Good. You keep praying; that'll keep you distracted from doing anything that might have an impact.

God supposedly also opposes sin, yet you fundies repeatedly like to claim we are all born into sin. Go figure.

You think it's sad that bullying is considered worse than being gay? I guess that tells us something about the kind of person you were in high school.

1/19/2011 5:31:33 AM


You know what is a choice? Religion. Oh sure, many people are brainwashed and don't have much exposure to rational thought but still, one chooses one's religion.

Since religion is a choice, by the fundies' own logic, it should not receive any protection under the law.

You sound like a silly little girl. Most people don't give very much credence to the childish warblings of silly little girls. Time to grow up, methinks.

Well, now you have a problem. Should you allow bullying to stop the homos from being homos, or should you stop bullying so the homos can keep being homos? What to do, what to do.

Question: Why doesn't God just step down and remove teh ghey from people, then? I mean, we are talking about the same omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent being that brought the entire universe into existence in under seven days, right? Is he just spent? Taking a break? All out of God juice?

The gay lifestyle is a chosen lifestyle.

So what are you saying? You're attracted to the same sex, but you suppress those desires and choose to be heterosexual?

1/19/2011 6:05:25 AM


"children deciding to be gay" says it all

Being gay doesn't harm others. Bullying does.

And people like you saying that being gay is not natural and something that someone just "chooses" is what does most damage to gay teenagers.

If sexuality is a chosen behavior, when sis you choose to be straight?

"... and what is this bullshit with 'lifestyle'? WTF does that even mean?"

Back in the 90s it was often referred to it as an alternative lifestyle. Gay people used the phrase too. It wasn't just limited to describing homosexuality either. Pretty much anything deemed outside of the cultural/religious/sexual/etc. norm could be labeled an alternative lifestyle. Really you could say fundamentalist Christianity is an alternative lifestyle, since it's only a minority of Christians who subscribe to it. You don't hear it so much these days though.

Well, the blood of the bullied, the suicidal, and the bashed is on your hands then. I'm sure God wants that for you.
