Quote# 87906

*In response to another christian poster who said 'gays don't recruit people to be gay'*

Will and Grace isn't recruiting? Glee isn't recruiting? Gay pride parades aren't recruiting? Attempting to pass gay marriage laws isn't trying to codify their evil lifestyle isn't recruiting?

In a word, no.

So ... they "recruited" you, huh?

If you honestly think it's possible to recruit a heterosexual to be gay, you are already gay. As someone who is actually heterosexual, I know that nothing could make me desire a man, ever. Why doesn't Respecthelect know this?

Every telly programme, every book, every radio station that contains straight relationships aren't recruiting to the straight life?
Every male/female couple you see on the street holding hands, kissing, wearing wedding rings, showing their children off isn't recruiting to the straight life?
I feel sorry for people like Respectthelect, they are so easily convinced that seeing people behave in a certain way recruits them to that way.
Maybe that's why they home-school their kids when they can't 'evil Darwinism' and book reading out of schools. After all, they are so easily recruited.
*Shaking head in disbelief*

You mean, just looking at that stuff gets you hot for your own sex? Methinx you don't need to be recruited.

Sorry. Double post.

Absolutely right. And every March 17 there are parades that are recruiting people into being Irish. It works, too -- I've seen people "come out" of the sidelines and start waving shamrocks they get from other marchers.

She's absolutely right. Before I watched "Big Bang Theory", I never had the slightest interest in the nerd lifestyle, now I go to science fiction conventions every chance I get. It's all part of the sneaky nerd agenda, I tell you.

If Will and Grace makes you think sexy thoughts about particular actors involved, or men in general, then I've got some (presumably, for you) bad news about your sexuality.

Seriously, if you even think it's possible to be recruited to homosexuality, you're either a complete moron or so deep in the closet you're among fauns and talking lions.

6/21/2012 9:12:46 AM


Oh! I know this one:

1) No.
2) No.
3) No.
4) Ye - no, wait, I mean No.

6/21/2012 9:16:32 AM


Nah, they're not recruiting at this time. Come back in a couple of weeks. Bring a pie next time. Maybe, you'll have better luck.

6/21/2012 9:24:49 AM


How tenuous a grasp would you have to have on your sexuality to think you could be recruited to be gay?

If the "recruiter" offered me a new Aston Martin and a large sum of cash they still wouldn't be able to recruit me. Why? Because I fancy women!

He's gonna be pissed when he realizes that Christianity is big on taking the flesh of a guy into your mouth and drinking down a fluid from his body and letting his "spirit" fill you and make you feel warm inside.

It's still voluntary, not conscription.

Christians aren't recruiting?

If all it takes to get you into bed with another (member of whatever gender you are) is a parade or a TV show, there's something you just aren't admitting to yourself yet.

6/21/2012 9:43:51 AM


Simply showing gay people functioning reasonable well in soceity is not recruiting any more than "The Lion King" is recruiting people to become lions. Attempting to enact laws against discrimination is not recruiting either. Sunday school on the other hand...

Fundies Make Me Sick

The "elect" don't exist as far as I'm concerned so no, I do not and I will not respect the "elect". In fact, I ridicule the so-called "elect" for being so damn arrogant and claiming to know the mind of God.

And as to the quote/questions, in short, no, it isn't.

6/21/2012 10:08:59 AM

Now, I know that the tv programs, parades, conventions and laws from Christian groups are attempts to recruit more souls for Christ... but just because you lot does it doesn't mean everyone else is...

6/21/2012 10:10:01 AM


You're right. No one is going to make people fancy other people of the same gender if they don't want to. Sorry. Some people are gay, deal with it. I've got gay friend and they've never tried to "recruit" me, unless you count them saying "you're looking nice today". But I take compliments where I find them, cos I'm quite comfortable with who I am.

No, no, no and...no.

None of those are recruiting. Where are the "Nate Berkiss wants YOU to be a homosexual" propaganda posters?

6/21/2012 11:00:08 AM


Will and Grace isn't recruiting?

Why? Did you suddenly get the urge to have gay sex after watching it? I didn't. Neither did any other straight person. If you did, then there's no need to "recruit" you - you're already gay!

6/21/2012 11:28:22 AM

Doing/seeing those things turns you gay?! Alert the media!!

6/21/2012 11:32:27 AM



If the L Word can't get me hot for women, pretty sure I'm stuck being hetero.
