A place for me to pour out my rants without clogging the inboxes of my friends and family. Also a place to give info on myself and Mary, our family news and events.
Just wondering...
Published on December 29, 2011 By Rightwinger In Philosophy

I was recently in a friendly--for the most part--discussion about gay marriage.

Now, I really have no valid opinion on the subject, but I will say that I don't think galaxies are going to explode if gays and lesbians are given the right to say "I do". After all, in the words of the great Dolly Parton, "They should have to suffer, right along with the rest of us."
And besides, I really don't think it's my place to judge them. What they do is between them and the God to whom they so cavalierly flip the finger.

It's their choice, it's their consequences. At least, that's how I see it.

However, because I made the statement that I didn't really agree with the homosexual "lifestyle", I was called a "hater".

Several times. Often vehemently.

Now, why am I a hater?

All I did, was to express an opinion; I don't "hate" gay people. My sister is a lesbian, and a very good friend is bi-sexual. 

I simply disagree with how they live their lives.

I mean, I disagree with how drug addicts and theives live their lives too, but am I considered a hater for it? I don't think so....
And really, don't gays pretty much disagree with how I live my life, too, having that yucky natural, vaginal sex with someone of the opposite gender, and all.....ICK!

In fact, over the years, I've been derisively called a "breeder" and a "straight"; like there's something weird, or perverse, about it. 
Why are they not considered haters, for that? For having that intolerant opinion about me, and what I do?
Why do we allow political correctness to only go one way?

And you know, while I'm at it, speaking of hate, do atheists ever attack any other religions besides Christianity?
They can say the most ignorant, vile, hateful, despicable things about Jesus Christ and the faith He founded, but they never seem to tag other faiths as severely, if at all.

Why is that?

Maybe it's because we Christians are an easy target; we might defend our faith in a debate, but other than that, won't fight back very hard. They know nothing will happen to them, if they nastily belittle our beliefs.
I mean, it's not like we're going to issue a fatwa against them or anything, right?

And, they say these mean, hateful things because--they say--we're the haters.

Funny how hypocrisy works, isn't it?

I can't believe you said this! It's a riot.

My nephew is gay, married, successful and happy, despite having made some potentially self-destructive choices (unrelated to sexual orientation) along the way.  I'm happy for him.  Celebrated with him at his wedding party.  His partner/spouse is a great guy.  I've been supportive of both of them and treat them like any other members of my family.  All my family loves them without reservation.

But I'm conservative in my politics, something my nephew and his spouse just 'can't understand'.

Well, it's not something I'm ashamed of. Things are what they are.

She's in a weird situation as a result of her "lifestyle", and I don't really like it, but the same thing could have happened if she'd been straight. But she's a nice person. And we both like vagina, so.....

Well, good; my sister and her friend don't get me, either.

The bi-sexual friend I mentioned is quite an anomaly, for his kind; he's a TEA Partier. We get along well; he's a pagan, practices witchcraft, and I tell him I'm sure his gay friends find him "magically delicious". He just laughs.

He hates Christianity, though, and acts as if paganism is completely innocent of its own atrocities committed in the name of faith.

For your friend, since he practices witchcraft the occult then that will be the main focus point.  I know enough on the topic so take it for what it's worth.

Have you asked him why paganism must rely so heavily on the occult unlike other religions?  Are the deities he worships nothing more than mere supernatural thought forms?  Could that be why his following relies completely on the occult to raise energy/power rather than directly from whatever his higher power is?  Many other religions like Christianity do not and that's one form of proof of its superiority over occult based religions.  Any religion that's forced to use the occult as a crutch to raise power is a false one because a higher power is technically unnecessary to achieve the same effect.  IMO, how anyone can lower themselves to worshiping something so unworthy is very unsavory to me.  A person's soul is meant for something greater.

Become often they called you hater yet if you don't hater because they might knew something it's wrong in thier lifesytle and and not want face a truth, a truth cause them angry, if people walking in righteous, turth not cause righteous angry at all, or so I though, just a though, if you are not yelling, or angry at them or look them down like that, if you telling them with love and humble, that is, then it's cause them something shame to them and they might not want face truth or not want hear it even you don't look down on them, or yell with hate, or whatever that may be.
