Another day, another cause.

Well. Let’s break the silence.
There is a sweetness that comes across in your narrative voice. It is warming that you strive to better yourself despite, or perhaps because of – who am I to judge? – your religious upbringing. This is why I am confident that you will take my comment in the spirit in which it is intended.
You say: “…even though I don’t agree with homosexuality.”
I struggle to understand what there can be to ‘agree’ or disagree with about homosexuality. Homosexuality is not a matter of opinion.
You can’t disagree with homosexuality as if it’s equivalent to coffee-drinking, governmental policy on education, or… whatever-have-you: whaling! for example.
Homosexuality is not a lifestyle choice.
It is not equivalent to preferring skinny jeans to boot-cut, or vegetarianism to meat-eating.
It just is.
In matters of homosexuality, I subscribe to Freud’s view that all humans are inherently bisexual, meaning that everyone incorporates aspects of both sexes, and has the capacity/propensity to love both sexes both psychologically and anatomically. Heterosexuality and homosexuality both, developed from this original bisexual disposition.
All else: learnt behaviour.
As far as I am concerned, Man created God in his own image – and somehow seems to have managed to imbue his invention with his own prejudices in the process.
But even if you are a Christian, didn’t Jesus say “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another”? Can’t find any indication in his teachings that this love must be confined to its heterosexual variant.
You might be making a ton of these in the coming days from what I have read about the future articles. 🙂
He-he. Let’s just hope there are enough hours in the day. And thank your reply to my comment on Mandy’s blog: always a pleasure crossing swords with you 😉
Did we cross swords? I didn’t even stretch!
I am one sneaky parry-partner he-he. You can’t even see me coming 😉 Swish!
Jolly well said, Vic, and I totally agree! Excellent post! xxx
Thank you, Alienora. I appreciate it. All who can think, will one day go pink 🙂
Yes, another great post pointed towards the understanding of homosexuality, most people use part of the bible as their defence and leave the other part out.
Thank you. This is exactly what I tried to challenge with this post.
You’re most welcome
Yes, I always find it funny when people say they ‘disagree’ with homosexuality as if it is a lifestyle choice, so I enjoyed reading this. Keep your posts coming Vic!
Thank you, Matthew. Will do 🙂
